Oklahoma man accused of cutting neighbor’s heart out, feeding it to his family

He then allegedly killed Leon Pye, 67, and his 4-year-old granddaughter, Kaeos Yates, and stabbed his aunt, according to the outlet citing the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation.

An Oklahoma man suspected of murdering three people has confessed to killing his neighbor, cutting her heart out and then cooking it to feed his family, authorities said.

Lawrence Anderson allegedly stabbed Andrea Lynn Blankenship, 41, to death in her Chickasha home on Feb. 9, The Oklahoman reported.

“He took the heart back to 214 West Minnesota, Chickasha,” an agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation wrote in a search warrant obtained by the outlet.

“He cooked the heart with potatoes to feed to his family to release the demons.”

Anderson had been staying at the 214 West Minnesota address with his aunt, Delsie Pye, and uncle, Leon Pye, after his early prison release in January.

18 young men and teens busted for Brooklyn murders, shootings in Bedford-Stuyvesant gang takedown (Video)

“Children are being shot,” Gonzalez said. “These young men view this as some sort of sick game.”

More than a dozen gangbangers were arrested for their roles in a spate of shootings and killings in Brooklyn, including two cold-blooded slayings, the NYPD and Brooklyn district attorney announced Wednesday.

The 18 young men — and a few teenage boys — are part of an umbrella group called the 900 Gang that operated out of public housing complexes in Bedford-Stuyvesant, prosecutors said. The group would shoot at members of rival gangs on sight, purely to establish territorial dominance, according to investigators.

“There’s no active incident. No active dispute,” said Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez at a press conference, calling it a “senseless” cycle of violence.

Police are absolutely right to target drill rappers… their toxic words are responsible for far too many deaths in Britain

So what is drill rap? It is a musical import from the Southside of Chicago, an area with an enormous murder rate among young black people. This is a part of the US where the police and authorities have almost given up on bringing order to the families who live amongst such mayhem.

A new police unit has been specifically formed to monitor the activities of drill rappers whose lyrics celebrate misogyny, weapons and death. This is a much needed move that will prevent bloodshed in Britain’s major cities.

Until relatively recently, I had no idea what a drill rapper is. If you are over 25, you probably have little idea either. And that is why this recent headline about drill rappers being targeted by police is, to most of us, unintelligible. But this story, which involves the formation of a unit that will monitor the activities of drill rappers, is quite a significant one, in that it helps explain why so many of our young, mainly black, men and teenagers are dying or being maimed by knives or guns.

Williams: Blacks of yesteryear and today

There’s little protest against the horrible and dangerous conditions under which many poor and law-abiding Black people must live. It is not uncommon for 50 Black people to be shot over a weekend in Chicago — not by policemen but by other Black people. About 7,300 Black people are murdered each year, and not by white people or racist cops, but mostly by other Black people. These numbers almost make our history of victimization by racist lynching look like child’s play.

I was a teenager, growing up in the Richard Allen housing project of North Philadelphia, when Emmett Till was lynched in Money, Mississippi, on Aug. 28, 1955, and his brutalized, unrecognizable body later recovered from the Tallahatchie River. From 1882-1968, 4,743 lynchings occurred in the United States.

Roughly 73%, or 3,446, were Black people, and 27%, or 1,297, were white people. Many whites were lynched because they were Republicans who supported their fellow Black citizens and opposed the lawless act of lynching. Tuskegee University has the best documentation of lynching. It records an 1892 high of 69 whites and 161 Blacks lynched. By the 1940s, occurrences of lynching fell to single digits or disappeared altogether.

At the time of my youth, today’s opportunities for socioeconomic advancement were nonexistent for Black people. For all but a few, college attendance was out of the question because of finances and racial discrimination. If you were not admitted to the Black colleges of Lincoln University or Cheyney State College, forget about college. I do not know of any student of my 1954 class at Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin High School who attended college. Though the quality of education at Benjamin Franklin is a mere shadow of its past, today roughly 17% of its graduating class has been admitted to college. The true hope for a youngster graduating from high school during the 1950s was a well-paying and steady job. My first well-paying job was as a taxi driver for Yellow Cab Company.

Crime Roaring Twenties

“The incremental number of blacks murdered in the first three years of the Black Lives Matter movement was greater than the total number of blacks lynched in U.S. history.”

Why do blacks get hassled by the police so much? The Occam’s Razor explanation is the one you are never supposed to mention in public: because on average African-Americans commit so disproportionately many crimes, especially murders.

I will therefore summarize some important crime statistics from federal government documents.

The most striking fact is that blacks, who have typically made up about one-eighth of the population, have comprised the majority of the country’s homicide offenders over the past four decades.

The FBI states that among 2018 murderers:

When the race of the offender was known, 54.9 percent were Black or African American….

3 dead, several wounded in cycle of South L.A. gang shootings, police say

“That started a rash of unfortunate, retribution-type shootings that resulted in a total of 12 incidents between us and the county,” Labrada said.

A single shooting in South Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon is believed to have touched off a vicious cycle of retaliation between two gangs that left at least three men dead and more than half a dozen others injured, law enforcement officials said.

After that first fatal shooting, another man was killed just south of Gramercy Park in unincorporated Los Angeles County, and the third in Inglewood, police said. The victims were not immediately identified.

In addition to the dead, there were multiple shootings across the area from the afternoon well into the night, said Cmdr. Alfred Labrada of the LAPD’s South Bureau, where much of the gunfire occurred.

“It’s a very unusual, very high number of victims,” Labrada said. “It’s just an unfortunate situation for us, especially in light of people supposed to be staying home, that there are still people shooting people out there.”

The British playboy who was Stalin’s Stooge: How war reporter Walter Duranty covered up a Kremlin-created famine that killed millions and allowed the Left to continue worshipping a mass murderer

Walter Duranty, veteran correspondent on WWI, was a top authority on the USSR. British-born journalists shrewd assessments of Bolsheviks made headlines. He covered up a famine caused when the Soviets confiscated grain in 1932 – 33

When he wasn’t in St Tropez basking in the sun, or at the horse racing in Paris’s Bois de Boulogne, the New York Times man in Moscow could usually be found at the bar of the Russian capital’s Metropol hotel.

A veteran correspondent of the First World War, Walter Duranty became, in the early 1930s, widely recognised as the top authority on the Soviet Union.

The British-born journalist’s shrewd assessments of Bolshevik power struggles were front-page news for at least a dozen years. He was the best-known newspaperman in the world, credited with gaining diplomatic recognition in the US for the fledgling Soviet state and – while the Western world was mired in economic depression – for lauding Stalin’s Five-Year Plans as models of efficiency.

Europe’s Nigerian Mafia

Italian intelligence has named the Nigerian mafia “the most structured and dynamic” of any foreign crime entity operating in Italy, according to the Washington Post…. What distinguishes the Nigerian crime networks is their severe brutality…

One of the fastest growing criminal networks in Europe is now the Nigerian mafia, which is spreading its criminal activities across the continent. It consists of rival groups such as Black Axe, Vikings and Maphite. Most recently, authorities in Italy, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Malta conducted an international operation directed at two of the major Nigerian mafia groups. Police accused the gangs of human-trafficking, drug trafficking, robbery, extortion, sexual violence and prostitution.

According to a June 2019 report by the Washington Post on the Nigerian mafia in Italy:

“They hold territory from the north in Turin to the south in Palermo. They smuggle drugs and traffic women, deploying them as prostitutes on Italy’s streets. They find new members among the caste of wayward migrants, illicitly recruiting at Italian government-run asylum centers.”

The Nigerian mafia, according to the report, is “trafficking women by the tens of thousands”. Italian intelligence has named the group “the most structured and dynamic” of any foreign crime entity operating in Italy, according to the Washington Post.
