A Racist Georgia Couple Was Just Sentenced To 35- Years In Prison For Terrorizing A Black Child’s Birthday Party (VIDEO)

A Racist Georgia Couple Was Just Sentenced To 35- Years In Prison For Terrorizing A Black Child’s Birthday Party (VIDEO)

We’re not sure what kind of monster you have to be to terrorize a child, especially at something as innocent and joyful as a birthday party, but a racist couple in Georgia is now playing dearly for what they did.

On July 25, 2015, a Georgia couple, 26-year old, Jose Ismael Torres and 25-year old, Kayla Rae Norto who are both members of the white supremacist organization “Respect the Flag” decided it was a good idea to storm a Black child’s eighth birthday party. The couple along with about ten others waved Confederate flags, brandished shotguns and screamed obscenities including the N-word at the group of partygoers.

After shouting, “kill y’all n*****s,” at the birthday party, the couple and their group drove to a nearby Wal-Mart where they continued to terrorize others. Yesterday, the couple who were the final two of fifteen to be charged with their hate crimes were sentenced to a total of 28 years in prison.

Judge William McClain who presided over the case was clear in saying, “Their actions were motivated by racial hatred.”

Torres was sentenced to 20 years in prison with 13 years served while Norto was sentenced to  15 years in prison with 6 years served.

Douglas County District Attorney Brian Fortner released a statement after the sentencing saying, “Many people tried to make the case about simply flying the Confederate Battle Flag. his case was about a group of people riding around our community, drinking alcohol, harassing and intimidating our citizens because of the color of their skin.”

During their sentencing, both Norto and Torres broke down weeping. Norto apologized for her actions saying, “I want you all to know that is not me. That is not me, that is not him. I would never walk up to you and say those words to you. I’m so sorry that happened to you. I am so sorry.”

Hyesha Bryant, one of the women who was in attendance at the party, responded by saying, “What you said affected my life. It affected my children’s lives.”

Ultimately, Bryant spoke to Norto mother to mother saying, “I forgive you, I forgive all of you.”
Though this incident happened prior to Trump’s election, it’s clear already that the hateful rhetoric behind his campaign and administration is already sparking an uptick of racially motivated crimes.

Jordan Middleton a 17 year old gunned down due to misunderstanding

Jordan Middleton, a 17 year old, gunned down due to misunderstanding

Jordan Middleton, a 17 year old, was shot to death in a Columbia county South Carolina community.

Jordan’s 14 year old girlfriend decided to sneak him into her house at about 2 in the morning to have sex. The girl’s father heard noises downstairs and thought it was an intruder. 
According to a news release from the Columbia County Sheriffs Office, Derrick Fulton says  he heard noise downstairs, got his handgun from a dresser, then went downstairs.
The family dog’s barking led the homeowner to the guest bedroom.
Fulton called out that he was armed and the intruder needed to identify themselves.
When Middleton didn’t say anything, the dog kept barking and acting aggressively toward the guest bedroom.. Once again, the homeowner yelled a warning.
As he entered the bedroom, Middleton ran out of the guest bedroom closet, and that’s when Fulton shot Middleton in the chest.
This story raises several questions. Did the town know a 17 year old and a 14 year old were having sex with one another? Why didn’t he simply answer from the closet that he was a friend of his daughter?
Guns and violence have been an issue that has emerged in American society during our recent era. Newtown, Columbine, Virginia Tech, and other shootings come to mind.

How Taraji P. Henson Stole The Show At The 2017 Oscars

How Taraji P. Henson Stole The Show At The 2017 Oscars
Taraji P. Henson has definitely been living her best life during Empire‘s hiatus, especially at the 2017 Oscars. Tarai P. Henson looked like she was having the time of her life. First of all, she showed up looking totally glam and walked the red carpet like a superstar, representing her critically acclaimed feature film, Hidden Figures.

A post shared by taraji p henson (@tarajiphenson) on

During the ceremony, she danced it out.

Then, she had the best ever reaction to host Jimmy Kimmel’s candy parachutes during the ceremony.

And when donuts fell from the ceiling later in the night, she asked co-star Octavia Spencer, “Are you sharing?”

We should all aspire to have as much fun as Henson during award shows.

It has been over two years since T-Boz and Chilli lauched their campaign on Kickstarter to fund the fifth and final TLC studio album. With the help of devoted fans and artists such as Katy Perry, the group surpassed their goal of $100,000 by raising over $430,000! 

TLC is set to release their album this year “at the end of June” according to Bill Diggins on Kickstarter. “This album could not have happened without your support and your confidence in TLC has inspired us greatly to make the best album possible. We would have loved to have delivered this album sooner to you but we are confident that you will agree that it was worth the wait when you hear it. The pursuit of excellence is never an easy task and always takes longer than expected”, he said.

The last TLC project with all three members was called 3D which was released seven months after the death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes on April 25th in 2002. The impending album will be the very first without Left Eye. 

This is a bittersweet moment for the Crazy, Sexy and Cool family. The excitement is real for what T-Boz and Chilli are going to bring!
