-4 Chief Responds To Allegations Of Driver's Beating Made In Court Document BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Last week a Hillsborough County Attorney filed docu ments in federal court alleg ing police allowed a family member to strike a woman who was in their custody. The incident reportedly took place during a 7-hour inter. rogation in June. The allegations were filed by AttorneyGr.ady Irvin, Jr., on behalf of his client, Ms. Cortnee Brantley. Ms. Brantley drove the ve hicle in w hich Dontae Morris was a passenger on June 29th. Tampa Police Officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab were fatally shot fol lowing a traffic stop. Ms. CHIEF JANE CASTOR Brantley was arrested on July 2nd and charged with concealing person from ar re s t, which is a federal charge Morris surrendered to police a few day s later after a massive _manhunt and was charged with killing the officers. Tampa Police Chief Jane COR1NEE BRANTLEY Castor responded to those allegations during a tele phone interview. Chief Castor stated that while Ms. Cortnee Brantley w a s being interrogated by police, they allowed both her mother and grand mother to be present. How ever she denies that Ms. Anornev savs Teens 'Now Have Chance To live' BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Members of the Black com munity have voiced concerns about a recent court case in volving four middle school teenagers. They feel the two African American defen dants received a harsher sentence than their two white co-defendants. Roo/ever, an attorney for one of the teenagers is satis fied with the sentence her client received. Attorney Lanell Williams-Yulee represented 15-year-old Diemante Roberts. His co-defendants are Raymond 16, Randall Moye, 15, and 15-year-old Lee Myers. Roberts and Price-Murray, who are Black, both pleaded guilty to one count of felony battery. They must also serve 5 years of adult probation and 100 hours of community service. Fifty of those hours must be speak ing to students about the af fects of bullying. The judge withheld adjudication. Randall Moye pleaded guilty to one count of felony battery. He has not been sentenced yet, but is ex pected to receive juvenile sanctions. Lee Myers faces one count of felony battery If he successfully completes a pre trial intervention program, the state will drop all ATTY. LANELL WILLIAMS-YULEE charges. All four of the boys were arrested in May 2009 and each was charged with four counts of sexual battery. The alleged victim was another student at Walker Middle School. The youth alleged that he had been sexually battered on several occa sions with his attackers using broom handles and hockey sticks. Some members of tbe community feel all of them were arrested on the same charges and should receive the same punishment. Attorney WilliamsYulee said, "It has always been our position that they were not guilty of sexual bat tery. However, they were charged with four counts of sexual battery and each charge carries a 30-year sen tence if convicted. I think it was a fair offer based on the level of their perceived in volvement." "The state perceived that DIEMANTE ROBERTS these two were the more culin the case based on the evidence and witxiess tes timon y I think that with the severity of the charges and the magnitude of the totality of the case it was a reason able offer. Now, the y have a chance to live their lives. Attorney Williams Yulee further stated that she understands that if the boys violate their probation they could be facing five years in prison. However, she said that would he five years as opposed to 130 years in prison and the charge would be battery and not sexual battery. Attorney. WilliamsYulee further stated that her client understands all of the ramifications of what could have happened. "I feel very confident that he will not be back in the sys tem. I am mentoring him as well and he understands that he has a chance to live a full and productive life." Brantley was mistreated while in their custody. Chief Castor said Ms. Brantley's mother and grandmother were allowed in the room during the inter rogation. First her mother came and then she called her grandmother. They were try ing to get her to cooperate. She was struck twice on the shoulder. But it wasn't out of anger, it wasn't a battery, they were just trying to get her attention." "I want the public to un derstand that under rio cir cumstance would an officer allow a person to be battered while in custody Chief Castor said. Chief Castor also said that family members and friends are allowed in the room during interrogations because it can sometimes be an integral part of the inves tigation. She said the deci sion is made on a case-by-case basis. In the court document Attorney Grady Irvin, Jr., wrote, "It also that during .the interrogation members of law enforce-::D ment appeared to acquiesce to Ms. Brantley being re -N 0 peatedly struck in the chest ..... 0 by a member of her family. "Following the marathon interrogation, Ms. ley was not offered a ride back to the location she was originally handcuffed, nor a:riy other location; instead she left the downtoWn head quarters of the Tampa Police Department and began the 14-mile walk that would lead her past two highway inter states and multiple dark streets and the document stated. Chief Ca,stor further said that if. Ms. :arantley walked from the police sta-:tion following the interroga tion it was by. chdice. :. "She was released with her mom and grandmother. If she walked, she chose to walk, perhaps ; out of frus tration. Morris is currently being held in the Hillsbor ough County Jail without bond.

Harsher Sentencing For Blacks Nothing New Z we applaud community activist and retired Hills-4( borough County Deputy Sheriff Clarence Fort for his call to action over the unfair sentencing of two former middle school students charged and sentenced W for the battery of another middle school student. The .i= two youths are Black. Initially, four students-two white and two Blackw had been charged for the crime. The two white students > were given lesser punishment. One white student was W expected to receive juvenile sanctions (whatever that means), while the other white student was allowed to enter a pretrial intervention program. No such.treat::i ment was given the two Black youths involved in the m Q, z ..I ..I m ..I w z i= z w en 4( c 0 ..I .LL crime. The two Black students, who are now being accused by the State Attorney's Office as the primary suspects were sentenced to 5 years adult probation. Meanwhile, questions were raised as to how four juveniles could receive such a wide variety of disparate punishments, especially if they each were found guilty of the crime-as-charged: one count each of felony battery. The Sentinel has asked numerous questions and shall continue to ask questions regarding unequal and unfair for Black people, which continues to be anationwide issue. Racism is alive and well in the criminal justice system. It is alive here, in Hillsborough County, and our young men and women are the victims. No, we are not protecting the guilty. But we are indeed, against that, which is unfair and unconstitutional. a Call. That Parents Need To Make I fyou have school-age children and you haven't done what we're about to suggest, li!iten! THIS EDITORIAL IS FOR YOU! The next two weeks would be fine for you to either call or visit your child's school. Would you believe, nearly six weeks have elapsed since the beginning of school. Most likely, the relationship between teachers and students has not been easy. Parental assistance would be greatly appreCiated. Yes, we know most parents work. But if you can't go, at least call since most everyone, these days, has a cell-phone. Researchers claim children behave better and perform better in class when their parents show personal o::t interest and communicate regularly with their chilW dren's teachers. Teachers respond more positively to <.:J students' concerns when parents share their own conif cerns directly and positively with teachers. The Great Misconception H ardly a day goes by that I am not ap proached by a former resident of the Central Park Village Housing Project in a celebratory mood. They are saying that at last the Central Park Housing Project is being rebuilt and it won't be long before they can move back home. Apparently these people believe that the housing proj ect will be rebuilt and they will be allowed to move back there. They feel that since they stayed there so long, when the housing project was a rat and roach infested, dilapidated, crime-ridden fa cility, it is their right to be able to move back in. The excitement of these people is being fueled by some construction work going on at the bare site. Ap proximately 40 men can be seen busy at work on the property. Without being told, people are assuming this is the re birth of Central Park Village. I believe these people are la boring under a great miscon ception: It is my understanding that all these workers are doing is putting in some infrastruc ture and not a single building is a part of the job. The site needs the infra structure whether they are going to build a housing pro ject, a shopping mall, an up scale condo or a rail hub for a rail system. I have heard that the mas ter plan for the area calls for Thomas 'Blind Tom' Wiggins Bethune 11849-19081: Musical Prodigv While researching slave and early Black American entertainers, I be came interested in learning more about the most popular slave entertainer during the mid to late 18oos, Thomas Wiggins Bethune, known as "Blind Tom." Born blind and mildly autis tic to married slave parents, Charity Greene and Mingo Wiggins, Thomas was sold along with his par ents soon after his birth to General James Neil Bethune, of Columbus, Georgia. Soon afterward, Bethune changed Thomas' last name to Bethune. All of General Bethune's children were musically tal ented and played the piano. Because Thomas was blind, he was not required to work like other slaves and spent most of his time with his mother while she worked in the Bethune family home. At a very early age, General Bethune noticed Thomas was able to play the piano without any musicaltraining, and could play songs on the piano that he had heard Bethune's other children play. General Bethune also noticed that Thomas could mimic the sounds of nature and animals and the voices of people. By the time Thomas was 4 years old, he had learned to play the piano well. Bethune arranged for Thomas to live in a room in the family home, and gave Thomas a piano. By the age of 5, Thomas had composed his first tune. Even though Thomas never learned to speak well, or carry on conversations (except for grunts and noises), by age 14, he could repeat from memory entire conversations (of up to 10 minutes in length) he had overheard. Back then, Thomas' behavior was char acterized as "eccentric". For a while, General Bethune licensed a traveling salesman to market Tom (at the age of' 8) as a "Barnum style freak," wherein Tom was mocked and compared to a bear, baboon or dog. As Thomas' popularity grew, however, General Bethune himself began to travel with the prodigy all over the it to combine with Ybor City, downtown and Channelside to form big entertainment, businesses and an upscale residential district. I could be wrong, but it is my sincere belief that no one with a Section 8 voucher or anyone who needs dis counted rent will ever live on the Central Park site ever again. With that being said, I hope I am wrong. I personally believe that we can look for all the areas on Nebraska Avenue and the surrounding area between Cass St. and Columbus Dr. to change very dramatically over the next five to ten years. The changes could start to come as early as the winter months of 2011. I say to those who have vi sions of returning to Central Park Village as residents to slow your roll, ask questions and demand some answers. There are those that say for Tampa to become a great Metropolitan City, we need a rail system. United States and Europe. Bethune hired professional musicians to write Thomas' original compositions and to play songs for Tom, who would then play the songs, often after only having heard them once. Tom is said to have been able to play at least 7,000 pieces of music, including hymns, waltzes, classical pieces and popular music. He is also said to have been able to play the coronet, French horn and flute. Thomas performed in con certs at the White House for President James Buchanan, before English royalty, and in vaudeville. Mark Twain frequently patronized Tom's concerts and wrote about his perform ances in newspapers. Known for performing un usual feats, Tom was able to play three pieces of music at the same time, playing a dif ferent song with each hand while singing a third melody. He could also play with his back to the piano with his hands inverted. From the early 1970's through 2009, there have been a musical, a play, a film, and biography written about Tom's life. I found Tom's life story fas cinating and sad because Tom died, never knowing that he had become a free man, at the end of the Civil War. Perhaps in his mind, "Blind Tom" was always free. Harambee! In the end, given Black children's poor performance on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) and other tests, our children need ali the tender love and sup-port they can get. And parents, that means you. So, do yourself, your children and your society a favor. Take time to go to school, on behalf of your children.

T"" N a: w m :2: w Ill. w en 10 Questions That Need Answering A couple of decades ago, c the Florida Sentinelen Bulletin was kind enough to print an unusual letter 1-I wrote to the editor. Because of so many things going on in our communities these days, I ask you to read some of these frequently asked questions and a few answers. It is my hope that some of you will respond with your answers --thusly your opinions. Here goes .......... .. What qualities define the late Reverend Abe Brown? humility, grace, unpretentious, a passion for helping those on > "lock-down", a praying some people have spent can fund Abe Brown ffi Ministries for one-year > including erasing the curW rent $125,000 deficit? fil Why do so many peo:::1: pie of African heritage fail to vote? Surely the m reasons are not about being short on postage z money (less than $1 to i= vote by mail), or to vote W early at convenient loca::j tions or being able to get ffi to the polls on Election ...1 Day (with free rides W available) Did you know that the !z Black voting bloc can W determine the outcome of many races on the c November 2nd ballot? 0: You could have found 0 that out by reading the Lt prolific writings of Sentinel Columnist, Randy Kinsey. Have you stopped to think that money that we spend (Hillsborough, Pinellas and Polk Counties) on hair weaves, nails, cell phones, alcoholic beverages and other stuff can fund the following? $5-million dollar endow-ments for each of the four HBCUs in FloridaBethune-Cookman University, Edward Waters College, Florida Memorial College and FAMU plus tutorial services for our low-achieving students for 52-consecutive Saturdays. Does anyone lose sleep thinking about solutions to a recent report that shows that only 35 out of every 100 Black boys in Hillsborough county, 29 out of every 100 Black boys in Polk county and 21 out of every 100 Black boys in Pinellas county graduates high school? Do you wonder what happens to the ones that do not graduate? They are not dumb-they have not applied themselves or had the personal drive, parental & community support to succeed. Just look at Chicago's Urban Prep Academy model and the success of the students at Mt. Pleasant Charter School in West Tampa. Have you ever seen a photo in the newspaper of up to Soo people in line who wait for hours just for the opportunity to vote? For those who are not working full-time, have you ever considered volunteering at your child's school or via an organization known as SERVE? Since our parents were the ones who had sex & thusly each of us was born, and we had nothing to do with it, why do we have so many internal "haters" among us such as light-skinned versus dark-skinned? Why is it that we get all "bent out of shape" when a non-Black person uses the N -word to us and we utter the N -word so many. times an hour at each other everyday and nobody says a mumbling word by complaining?

10th Annual Housing Hero ScholarshiP Gala 2010 Housing Hero Scholarship awards winners (L to R): Rachel Johnson, Willie Clay, Jr. and Giselle Mitchell. In 2000, the Tampa Housing Authority began a celebration to honor the best and brightest public housing students and also recognize businesses and individuals in the community that have been a friend or public housing advocate. The program, called Housing Heroes, has provided opportunities for higher edu cation for many qualified pub lic housing and Section 8 stu dents and has honored many businesses, organizations and individuals that have enabled THA to continue the provision of exceptional resident initia tives, scholarship opportunities, job skill training and other self-sufficiency programs. Prior winners of the Dr. Margaret Fisher Scholarship have been the first in their families to seek higher education, and have excelled in their chosen field. Some are now lawyers, PhD's, and some have earned their MBAs. According to THA records, over 3,000 public housing and Section 8 students are identi fied each year. Unfortunately, JOE SOARES only three to five students received a scholarship through this program. THA Director of Public Relations, Lillian Stringer, said she understands how tough it is for kids from public housing "Those who can excel in spite of that, and become first in their family to attend col lege, should be recognized and rewarded." "We know a $2,500 scholar ship won't cover much, but it will give them a start. I came from public housing, and I remember how thrilled my family was when I became the first to attend college." This year's recipients are Rachel Johnson, Willie Clay, Jr., and. Giselle Mitchell. This year's Housing Hero Scholarship Gala will be held Thursday, December 2, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency down town Tampa. This year s speaker will be Joe Soares, star of the 2005 documentary film, Murder-ball, a story about athletes with quadriplegia who play wheelchair rugby.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Local J obs4Felons representative, JoAnna "Flava" Williams said in today's society, you have to have either a diploma or GED to get past the application process for a job. "It's even tougher for ex felons. We can't expect the Department of Corrections to make sure they are prepared for that process "We are announcing the creation of a Department of Corrections Re-Entry Advisory Council that will address the needs of felons re-entering society." Williams said on September 27th from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m., there will be a meeting at the Main Sails Hotel, 5108 Eisenhower Boulevard, to provide more information and direct ex-felons through the re-entry process "Inmates need to leave prison with at least a GED, and the DOC needs to make this mandatory. They must give them an opportunity to be successful and not thrust into a life of possibly being a re-offender. It's obvious what they have in place right now isn t working." "We want to see inmates provided with documents when they are released that will make it easier for them to obtain a driver's license and other forms of identification. We want to end the frustration of ex-felons who have to fight so hard just to get start ed."

CJ) local Promoter Feels Black Males Untairlv Profiled c CJ) m "tJ m s: BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Leonard Boone is a self made businessman and promoter, and although he has focused his attention to reli gious ventures, he's still well aware of what's happening on the streets. Boone recently did some research into what law enforcement agencies consider to be gangs, and what criteria they use to determine that a gang exists. "According to what I've been told, a gang is three to five people dressed in the same colors, have a common name or common identifying signs, colors or symbols, or have member who individual ly or collectively engage in criminal acts." Boone said that explana tion could refer to any group, and he is particularly upset as to why people of color are the only ones targeted by law enforcement agencies who fit that criteria. "It's well known that $2.5 million in grant money was awarded to law enforcement LEONARD BOONE agencies locally as part of the U. S. Government's nationwide comprehensive antigang initiative." "We as a church, and as people, need to step up to the plate and make a stand for our youth, because the government is taking our males away." ''I'm not saying people of color don't commit crimes, but when you're Black with an arrest record and ihanging out in the neighborhood where you were raised, how are you a gang member. Is it because you have tattoos, tD m go ld in your mouth or a car JJ with rims and candy paint? 1\) ...... Boone alleges that law enforcement agencies nation-wide have set a standard of c; de a ling with violent crimes within communities by cate gorizing certain races because they gather in groups. "I want them to understand that it takes more than tattoos and colors to be a gang member. There are gangs out there, but you can t point to every group of young Black men and say they are members of a gang. You also can't assume someone is a gang member simply because they are talking to someone who is." "Our children grow up with friends, and simply because their friends make a wrong turn in life, doesn't mean they stop being friends." Boone wants all of the area churches to make a stand for the youth "They are the future, and if we really care we will step in and offer them a better future than what's been expected of them by outsiders who know nothing about our culture." ., I 0 JJ !; CJ) m z :::! z m I tD c: I I m :::! z "tJ c: tD I en ::::1: m c m < m c: m CJ) c )> z c ., :!! c

Sports Vince Young Will Remain Titans Staning Quarterback VINCE YOUNG Vince Young's benching apparently will be temporary. Young, the Tennessee Titans' starting quarterback the first two games of the season, will remain in that role despite being pulled from a Week 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Coach Jeff Fisher said immediately after the game Sunday Young would start next week. The Titans play the New York Giants next week. ''Vince is still our starter ," Jim Wyatt of the The Tennessean reported Fisher as saying. "He will. start next week against the Giants. There is ho quarterback controversy. I just thought it was the best decision for the team Young completed s e v e n of 10 passes for 66 yards in a 19-11 loss to Pittsburgh. But he also was intercepted twice and lost a fumble accounting for three of the seven turnovers that led to 12 Steelers points and prevent ed Tennessee from establish ing consistency or momentum. The Titans trailed 16-3 in the fourth quarter when he was replaced by Kerry Collins. young had performed well in the Titans' regularseason opener, and had entered Week 2 as the AFC's leading passer with a rating of 142.8. His rating against Pittsburgh was 48. 3. He (Fisher) is the head coach, ''Young told Wyatt. "I am definitely disappoint ed for being benched, but at the same time he is the head coach." Young also added about remaining the starter, "I hope so. I pray to God, I hope so. I want them to con tinue to keeping trusting in me. (Fishe:.;-) felt he wanted to .go with Kerry and I can't go up to the boss and tell him no. What I have to do is follow the Jason. Campbell's .Staning Job In Jeopardv -. After Raiders' Win JASON CAMPBELL Jason Campbell hoped an April trade to Oakland would help him revive a thus-far disappointing NFL career. Sunday's performance, though, was a step in the wrong direction. Campbell was benched at halftime of the Raiders' game against St. Louis after an unsteady first half that saw Oakland's offense sput. ter to just three points. The 28-year-;old Campbell hit 8 ofls passes for87 yafds ; but was pulled in favor of Bruce Gradkowski .to start the third quarter. Gradkowski spearheaded three scoring drives, leading Oakland to a come-from-behind, 16-14 victory "I was surprised," Campbell said about being pulled "We were down 7-3. We had been moving the ball. We just stalled when we got to the red zone. But at the same time, it was a decision that they made. I've got to do what I've got to do and just live with it and just move forward. Oakland coach Tom Cable refused to commit to a starting QB going forward --the Raiders p.lay at 1-1 Arizona next week. Steelers QB Dennis Dixon lniures Len Knee DENNIS DIXON The Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback situation con tinues to be a revolving door after Dennis Dixon was forced to leave Sunday's game at Tennessee with a sprained left knee. Dixon apparently injured the knee on a designed rollout on the first play of the second quarter. The play gained 7 yards and set up a 36-yard Jeff Reed field goal that gave the Steelers a 10-3 lead. Pittsburgh won the game, 19-11. Brown Absent From Ring OIHonor Celebration JIM BROWN CLEVELAND -The Browns are ce)ebrating their glorious past without their greatest player.

Jackson's Mother Sues Concert Promoter AEG live LOS ANGELES-A lawsuit filed by Michael Jackson's mother once again places the spotlight on the pop star's final day s as it focuses not just on the doctor charged in his death but also on the concert promoter that w as supposed to pay the phy sician. Katherine Jackson sued AEG Live LLC in Los Angeles Superior Court claiming the promoter of her son's planned series of comeback concerts failed to provide key lifesaving equipment and adequately monitor the cardiologist hired to care for her son. The case cites numerous events that allegedly occurred in the two months prior to Jackson's death in June 2009, including details of ne gotiations between AEG and Dr. Conrad Murray. The phy sician has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and his actions in the hours before Michael Jackson's death will be the subject of a criminal trial. Murray has pleaded not guilty and is not named as a KATHERINE JACKSON defendant m Katherine Jackson's lawsuit. Murray's proposed contract was not included in the filing, but a copy obtained earlier this year revealed that Murray requested a heart re suscitation machine and an other person with medical training from AEG. The equipment was not in place when Jackson died. KMITerine Jackson's attorney s -at the time had ex pressed concerns about AEG's involvement but had not raised issues publicly in re cent months after hiring a new attorney, Adam: Streisand, to represent her interests.

Honeywood, 59, died Sunday at a Los Angeles hospi tal after a two-year battle with cancer one of her cousins, .Jennell Allen, said Tuesday.

Speaking on the late artist, Cosby described her saying, "Those colors ... she was abbrilliant...Forms and attitudes in human beings, she was able to capture them." City Council Chairman Vincent Gray beat out Fenty by obtaining 53 percent to 46 percent for Fenty, making Gray the mayor due to no Republican opponent. Fenty, who, made improving the city's schools a top priority, brought in Michelle Rftee as public schools chancellor. Although Rhee seemed like an obvious choice after gaining na tional attention for her approach to measuring teacher quality by students' test scores and advocat ing merit pay Rhee drew attacks from unions for firing more than 260 teachers over student per formance; many feel that it was this choice that led to Fenty's loss in the election. c: m (J) NAACP Seeks Pardons For 2 Women Serving lite c (J) m "tl -( m :5: OJ m ::c 1\) _.. 1\) 0 ... 0 JAMIE AND GLADYS SCOTI The NAACP and several other special interest groups urged Mississippi governor to pardon two women serving life sentences for a their part in a an armed robbery that netted $11.

E&P I was bom in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here. -Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed. Restoring Gulf Communities We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have been working with impacted communities since day one. Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers and teams in four states,listening and helping Restoring The Economy BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners, help i ng to make them whole. More than 1 20,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay a Illegitimate clai ms, i ncluding lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work Arid none of this will be paid by tax payers BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches Restoring The Environment We 're go i ng to keep looking for oil and cleaning i t up i f we f i nd i t. Teams w ill rema i n in place for as long as it takes t o restore the Gulf Coast. And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage. Thousands of BP employees have their reots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We w ill do everything we can to make this right.
