The New York Police Department (NYPD) has confirmed that an individual has confessed to the gruesome stabbing murder of a college student earlier this week, and the culprit is reportedly a 13-year-old boy.
Law enforcement found the 13-year-old boy while searching the area surrounding Morningside Park where the body was discovered. They found him around 4:20 pm on Thursday afternoon wearing clothes that matched the description of clothes that witnesses claimed were worn by the suspect.
He was arrested for criminal trespass after he was found in the lobby of a building at Manhattan Avenue and 119th Street. Cops found that he was carrying a knife, and booked him on illegal weapons charges as well. The boy then confessed to the murder while he was at the police station as his uncle accompanied him.
The boy now faces second degree murder charges in addition to robbery and weapons charges. He will be tried in family court due to his age, and his identity has been masked from the public for the same reason as well. The police are questioning another juvenile about the murder, and believe there may be another accomplice that they are still on the hunt to find.
Tessa Majors, an 18-year-old college student at Barnard College in New York City, was found stabbed to death in a Manhattan Park on Wednesday night. Her family and the community at large are shocked and disgusted at what took place.
“We are devastated by the senseless loss of our beautiful and talented Tess. We are thankful for the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from across the country. We would also like to express our appreciation for the efforts of the men and women of the NYPD, who continue to work diligently on this case,” the Majors family said in a statement.
CBS New York interviewed students who were thunderstruck by the loss of one of their colleagues.
“We’ve lost somebody who is really special to us, and no arrest of one person or multiple people is going to do that, but it might help us sleep better at night,” said Eric, a Columbia student.
“I think it’s really sad that it’s such a young man because I think you can see that,” Caitlin Walsh said. “I was really, really scared on Wednesday night, Thursday and even today just walking alone and being outside alone. So it’s better to know they have something.”
“That’s just tragic. I mean there’s no justice here,” a man named Eric said.
The Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA), a labor union that represents the NYPD, released a statement following the stabbing essentially blaming the lax criminal justice policies of left-wing Mayor Bill de Blasio for the murder.
Your full of shit, say no more, people don’t believe you and have no faith in you. Your anti police policies have emboldened the criminal element to run freely, to rape,rob and murder. You have sided with criminals and placated the loud & unruly YOU have RUINED New York City. https://t.co/CM8Wv5D4y7

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
