The Blaze reported that New York City police are in search of a group of suspects accused of committing a violent assault and robbery on March 5, 2020 against a 15-year-old girl in Brooklyn.
Surveillance footage of the afternoon incident was caught on Utica Avenue near Sterling Place in Crown Heights, WCBS-TV reported.
One male knocked the girl down on the sidewalk and others jumped in and started stomping her:
The mob of teens grew in a matter of seconds as more suspects converged upon her.
Video footage taken from another position at the intersection showed the mob beginning to flee after the attack:
One suspect remained and is caught taking sneakers right off the victim’s feet while she’ writhing in pain on the sidewalk:
The station reported that the victim is expected to recover. However, her phone and debit card were stolen.
Investigators allege this was a retaliatory attack for a prior incident, WCBS reported. They added that police haven’t confirmed what the previous incident was about
Carlita Gorden works at a nearby salon and arrived at the scene when she heard screaming, the station reported.
“For so many kids to jump on one individual, it’s just ridiculous,” she said to WCBS.
Gorden also informed the station that the girl was “grabbing on her book bag. No shoes, just sitting … with no shoes. Then you see the little one holding her sneakers, running away. Come on, it’s sad. We have to do better as a community. We have to do better as people in general. That this little girl could’ve lost her life; it’s really sad.”
The incident occurred in front of Anita Peavy’s electronics store, and Peavy told WCBS she quickly brought down the store gate and went outside to find out what was happening.
“I didn’t need no trouble,” she told the station. “I [was] scared the kids [would] come in here and just go crazy the way they was going crazy out there. I have never witnessed nothing like that yet in my life … To see such a small kid just dropping on one kid, it was crazy.”
Peavy is also a registered nurse and attempted to help the victim, WCBS said.
“She was bleeding like crazy,” she remarked. “We just tried to keep her calm and sitting there until the ambulance come.”
New York’s criminal justice reforms are creating an environment of dysfunction.
New York will need to rethink its criminal justice policies and instead rely on proven tough on crime approaches to tackling these issues of public order.
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.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
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.
