Father 01 Four Dead, Friend Woman Given 5 wounded In Club Shooting Years Probation I Tampa Police report that at 2:46 a. m. Sunday, Club Empire in Ybor City was clos ing and patrons were leaving when an unknown suspect fatally shot Leslie Jerome Jones, Jr., 20, in the club's VIP room. Jones was struck in the head and died instantly. According to a source, Jones was involved in analtercation with a patron and got the best of him during a fight. That patron allegedly left, somehow got his hands on a gun, and returned, shooting Jones andAhmaud Black. Black, 19, was shot in the chest and is recovering in a local hospital Jones's sisters, Sbacana Jones and LaSbawn, said Jones really enjoyed driving his car and spending time with his children. Fam ily members describe him as being a "very sociable person." LaShawn said her brother wasn't a frequent vis itor of Club Empire and was just out having a night of fun with his friends. According to his family, Jones was born in Virginia, but his family moved to Tampa when he was 2 years old. Jones was the only boy of six children, and his sisters said they spoiled him terribly. "Right now, we are pray ing the person that shot him is caught," said LaSbawn. "Leslie never went look ing for trouble, but sometimes it would find him anyway. He definitely didn't deserve to have his life taken away like this. LaSbawn said Leslie really loved helping people and preferred being with his children and family than going out clubbing, or getting into trouble with some of the guys in the area. "He talked about returning to school and getting his GED "He also talked about how frustrated he was with the way guys his age were killing each other." LaSbawn said a lot of people didn't like Leslie, be cause he kept mostly to him self. "All he ever talked about was turning his life around, and the fact that he didn't have time for the foolishness some of the other guys were involved in." Ms. Eva Lumpkin said her son, Ahmaud, has been LESUEJONES ..... died instantly from gunshot wound to the head. He posed for this photo the night he was gunned down. through a lot, and has been attending church frequently at Grace Mary M. B Church where she said he's also par ticipated as an usher. "I didn't want him to go out Saturday night, but we talked and he went on any way. ''I'm really proud of how he's turning his life around. He's been through a lot and now I think he's finally grow ing up. It hurts me deeply the way he's being portrayed by the media and th e police. This is not the time for that and I think that's very insen sitive of them. Ms. Lumpkin said 8 years ago her brother was gunned down at Jackson Heights Apartments and she didn' t want Ahmaud over AHMAUD BLACK .... was shot in the chest, but is recovering in a local hospital. there. "I understand that he will go where his friends are, but I was never comfortable with him being over there. Right now, my heart goes out to the family of the young man who died. Ms. Lumpkin said Ahmaud was shot four times by police in 2006 when he and some friends were in volved in an armed robbery. He is still recovering from that. "He went to prison for three years when he was 15, and that changed him a lot. He' s still having problems physically as a result of that shooting, and that's probably why he' s not that friendly with police Ms. Lumpkin said someone needs to try to reach these young Black males so they will stop killing each other. I feel God has spared hmaud twice. This incident really awakened me and made me realize just how dangerous it is out there for young Black men. Family members of Jones said he has four chil dren, and was expecting a fifth when the shooting oc curred. Police said they have not been able to get any information from Black on the shooting, so they don' t have any suspect information Police are asking that any patron (witness) that has any information to contact Detective Kirlangitis at (813) 231-6130. The family of Jones has contacted Gudes Funeral Home to help them with a service. In Fraud Case On Mqnday, a Tampa woman arrested last year and charged with fraud was sentenced to probation.

Opinions expressed on editorial page s of this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers do not necessarily reflect the editorial stance of The Florida Sentinel Bulletin or the Publi she r Derailing The School To Prison Express People say everything grows bigger in Texas. No doubt, that's the reason why a rash of recent school student "get-tough" measures are making world news in the form of rules. Texans call it a "Class C misdemeanor. It is a police citation given to public school children for offensive language, class disruption, schoolyard fights, and other school incidents. According to a recent news report, "thousands of students land in court with fines of up to $soo. Students with outstanding tickets may be arrested as adults after age 17." But most shocking is a land.Jnark study sanctioned by the government of Texas and done in its public schools, which reveals six in ten students have been suspended or expelled at least once from the seventh grade onward. Critics call it a "school-to-prison-pipeline." We call it a disgrace to the United States of America. Yet, in our own community, school children continue to be disruptive, in class as well as on the playground. In certain situations, their disruptiveness has even turned deadly. What aught we to do to keep our schools from becoming war zones and our children from becoming convicts? Trov Davis: A case Against The Death Penaltv Call him the poster child against the death penalty. Troy Davis would have easily filled the bill. In case you don't recognize his name, Troy Davis was put to death, the other day, for a murder two decades ago, which up until the final moments of his life, he swore to God he didn't commit. Would the world become a safer place because another middle-age Black man had been put to death by the State of Georgia? The answer is "No." But beyond the debate of Troy Davis' ultimate innocence, lies another on-going question: Does the death penalty really earn its societal keep? Having lost countless appeals to disregarding State of Georgia state and federal Courts and then finally to the U.S. Supreme court, Troy Davis knew his days were numbered. Though his pleas had logged support from 4,000 letter writers, one million petition signers, and pleas from such luminaries as past President Jimmy Carter, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Rev. AI Sharpton, even Pope Benedict VI, and congressional representatives, the jaws ofGeorgiajurisprudence would not let Davis go. The possibility that Davis was wrongfully convicted was glaring, since there was no DNA; no murder weapon, seven of nine witnesses had tecanted their statements, and another man had confessed to the crime. Neverthe-..::t less, Troy Davis' blood had scented the air of Georgia, all w for naught. C:S But Troy Davis is dead, now. And we who remain arc left with the question, "How many more innocent men I Who's On First For The GOP I Nine people make up a field of Republicans running for the party's presidential candidacy. All the pollsters indicate that Gov. Rick Perry of Texas is the leading candidate. Yet, he has not won a straw poll and he has not done well in the GOP debates. The second favorite is flip-flopper, Mitt Ronmey. The Republicans talk about how presidential Romney looks Yet, they have hit rated behind Perry. The rest of the field has been discounted, most are saying that the Re publican primary is a two-man race between Perry and Romney. It is evident that the base of the Republican Party is not satisfied or confident with Perry, Romney or any of the other candidates. Many leaders in the GOP are openly begging Chris Christe, Jeb Bush, Mitch Daniels and even Mark Rubio to enter the race and compete for the nomination. They see both of the front-runners as being a joke. Republican candidates are defended by the party and they say that everyone in the field will be able to defeat President Barack Obama in the 2012 election. They argue with their tongues in cheeks. They know that this is no more than a bunch of junk. The truth of the matter is that they really don' t believe any of their announced candidates can win. Notice thus Republican primary is just short of being a love test, Republicans are careful not to beat up on each other too badly. They realize that their candidates are already weak, so they don' t want to have them go into the general election any weaker. Someone said, Perry is a joke, Bachman is a dope, and The Role 01 Negro Spirituals In The Underground Railroad N egro spirituals' connection to the Underground Railroad (UGRR) always intrigued me. Today, we will investigate the role of Negro spirituals in the Underground Railroad and slaves quest for freedom, even though some critics maintain that there is a lack of concrete evidence to prove their use. According to numerous sources, s l ave owners noticed that slaves worked harder and longer when they sang and the music seemed to keep their spirits up. Since singing about freedom was considered a crimina l act, s l aves coached their drea m s and desire for freedom in a wide range of c 1yptic l y rics that s l ave owners didn' t pay attenti o n to o r un d e rstand. Indee d, Harriet Tubman used spiritu a l s as secret sig n a l s to s l aves. Reportedly h e r farewell spiritual informed s l aves about her plan to run away as follows: When that o l e c hariot comes, I'm going t o l eave you I'm bound fo1 the pmmised land (Canada) ... I'll meet you in the morning, when you reach the promised land ; on the other side of Jor dan (Ohio River) For I'm bound for the promised land. n Upon returning, when Tubman was on her way down South to lead others to freedom, the spiritual "Go Down Moses" sent news of her plans to return as follows: "Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt Land, Tell Old Pharaoh, Let my people go The spiritual, 'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot' was said to r efe r to Ripley Ohio a "s t ation" on the UGRR where fugitive slaves were welcome. Ripley sat atop a hill near the Ohio River (Jordan) where s l aves h a d to wait for abolitionists to come and lead them across the river. Thus, the lyri cs I looked over Jordan and what did I see, com ing fo,. to cany m e home, a band of angels coming ajte1 me, co m ing f01 to cany m e home." When singing "Wade In the Water," slaves were telling each other how to avoid capture by leaving dry land by and women will we kill before justice is finally done?" Romney is a flip-flopper. They all have one basic thing down-pat and that is to criticize the president. You ask any of them a question about what they would do as the president and without answering the question they immediately go to criticizing the president. I give the Republicans credit for one thing and that is they don' t mind telling a big lie and continue to tell the lie in spite of the fact that their lie has been proven to be just that, a lie. I am sure that many members of the Republican party join the millions who are wondering who's on first for the GOP. By that we mean, who will emerge as the Republican presidential nominee. For sure, it won't be Michelle Bachman, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Santorium, Paul, Johnson or Huntsman. The Republican party is hoping it won't be one of these as well, Perry and Romney. I think the Republicans had better get used to one of these candidates. I don't believe any better people will show. The better Republican candidates will wait for the 2016 Presidential Election walking in the waters of rivers and streams to throw bloodhounds off their trail. Of course, the songs "Deep River" and "Stan' Still Jordan" refer to the depth of the rivers and how swiftly the water flowed. One song, "Follow the Drinking Gourd," contained a coded map and timetable to the UGRR, giving a route to take as slaves made their way towards freedom using the Big Dipper star constellation. The lyrics are as follows: "When the sun comes back and the first quail calls, Fol low the drinking gourd, For, the old man is awaiting to carry you to freedom, If you follow the drinking gourd. n Most likely, you can see the messages coded in the songs "Walk Together Children," "There Is a Balm In Gilead" (Ohio and Canada), "Gospel Train" (UGRR), "I'm Bound For Canaan Land," and "Steal Away." Indeed, the Underground Railroad used many code words which I will share at a later date. I believe the slaves every d ay struggle for existence and survival were made easier through songs of hope and messages to one another. But I also believe many of their songs were cryptic aids which helped countless men, women, and children to escape to freedom. Indeed, I certainly hope so. Harambee! Since slavery, we have not been able to answer that question. Perhaps, we Americans are not so civilized after all.

Recently the young woman achieved that goal after passing the bar exam on her first attempt. Recently, Judge Belvin Perry swore Attorney Donna Robinson and several other jurists into office. Her parents, Attorneys Donald and Pamela Robinson, along with her brother, Aaron, were on hand for the occasion. Attorney Robinson is shown with Judge Belvin Perry at the ceremony and her mother, Attorney Pamela Robinson. Attorney Robinson said the swearing in ceremony was held at the law school. Having met Judge Perry, who presided over the infamous Casey Anthony trial she said he was so nice. Her mother, Attorney Robinson said, "We are so very proud of her. She took the bar exam and passed it on the first attempt, and that doesn't happen often ."

PETERSBURG-It's an Z old story that when tenants i= don't' pay their rent, they are ffi evicted. (/) a: 0 ...I u.. The tenants in this case are Arthur and Mary Boyd, who are Black. Their landlord is white. The Boyds said they paid rent until they were told to stop and wee discriminated against, including being subjected to repeated racial slurs. The case attracted the attention of the federal government and local governments. The couple filed a discrimination complaint this year with the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Last Tuesday, the Pinellas County Commission voted unanimously to take the step of having the Pinellas County Attorney fight on behalf of the couple in court. The problem began with a real estate investor who got in over her head with propoo:t ,.... erties she bought with the W intent of renting them. According to a document, the Boyds signed a two-year lease in January 2009 to rent a house at 4740 17th Avenue, South from Diane Nelson. The monthly rent was $685, but the Boyds were allowed to pay $640 if they mowed the lawn there and at two other places owned by Nelson. However seven months later, the couple, who live with a disabled daughter, received notice the property was being foreclosed on. Nelson reportedly told the Boyds not to worry and to continue paying rent. In September of 2009, she told them to stop, the county says. So, in October and November, they didn't pay rent. Though Nelson never told the Boyds, she sold the property to a man for 41,000 in November 2009. She represented the Boyds as a consultant helping her to make payments on various properties. Howe v e r, there' s also evi d e nce the property was never transferred. The sale never was recorded in offi cial records, and the house was in Nelson's name when she turned it over to Fannie Mae in lieu of foreclosure half a year later. The Boyds said after the alleged purchase, the new owner began demanding rent in December 2009. The Boyds said the so-called new owner, John Burgess, used profanity and racially derogatory terms. On January 6, 2010, an eviction summons was issued for the Boyds, citing their failure to pay rent in November and December of 2009. A judge ordered them to deposit $1,800 in unpaid rent in a court registry. They didn' t and were evicted in March 2010. The county is pursuing action against Nelson, even though she didn' t say anything racially derogatory, because the assistant county attorney said Nelson was using Burgess to d e al with the Boyds in the months l e ading up to their e viction. Native Tampan Shares His Experience Of Addiction And Prison BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Eric Felder was among the most popular students at Howard W. Blake High School. He was an exceptional athlete both at football and basketball, and had a lot of friends. He grad uated in 1971. As has become customary with a lot of people, they go in different directions after graduating from school and sometimes the decisions they make causes them and their family members pain. Felder was one of those people who made some bad decisions, and those decisions cost him his freedom and threatened his health. Felder fell into a critical drug addiction problem and that addiction caused him to do things that eventually led to him spending more than a decade in prison "During my periods of incarceration, I wrote several poems relating to the spirit of confinement. I also discovered many of the inmates/convicts could not read adequately enough to enjoy my poems. "I believe reading is fundamental to improving one's life. I also believe improved reading is needed for effective communication. The chief function of literacy is to give knowledge and communication. Modern society cannot ERIC FELDER hope to become a just society without a high level of litera cy.! Felder said a low level of literacy, which can be found in jails and prisons, destroys your chance of being a contributing factor in society. "illiterate persons are condemned not only to poverty, but powerless due to a lack of comprehension. "Poems Of Passion devel oped into Poems for Literacy so that those who are unable to read adequately can begin to format a need within themselves to seek justice through literacy." Felder said he hopes that whomever reads his poems will experience the mind of the prisoner confined within the walls filled with idleness. "The prisoner's idle mind fights a spiritual and mental war within him or herself." Felder said he hopes inspi-:ration can be drawn from his poems and that the reader can gain something from the poems to help them get their lives back and their identity Red light Cameras Program In ERect On Saturday, October 1st, the City of Tampa activated its intersection safety cameras.

But it wasn't all Fer ris wheels and funnel cakes. The event was called Making the Ordinary Extraordinary, and it sought to raise funds for college scholarships.

Though Daniel Craig is about to embark on his third adventure as 007, speculation is already abound as to who will replace him. One name that has been the subject of intrigue is Idris Elba, the English actor best known for his role as intellectually fierce drug king Stringer Bell in HBO's landmark series, "The Wire." That would make him the non-white James Bond --an idea which Craig himself first suggested after Pres. Barack Obama was elected in 2008 --and something Elba endorsed, if IDRISELBA mildly, in an interview with the Guardian in 2009. "Do I think it will happen? No, but I've got what it takes to do it. I can run around, flirt with ladies and drink. Plus I'm English," he said. Two years later, he's still keen on the idea, though he has a few reservations. Exec. Savs Device Used On Jackson Was Inadequate LOS ANGELES --An ex ecutive for the maker of a medical device used by Michael Jackson's doctor to monitor the singer told jurors on Friday that the equipment was not adequate for .the continuous monitoring of patients. The $275 fingertip device that monitors the pulse and blood oxygen levels was recovered after Jackson's death and was being used by Dr. Conrad Murray while he was giving the singer doses of the surgical anesthetic propofol. Prosecutors called Nonin Medical executive Bob Johnson to try to show that .. T f DR. CONRAD MURRAY Murray lacked enough equipment to care for the singer during the treatments. Propofol is normally administered in hospital settings.

Woods, who hasn't won in nearly two years, was assured of dropping from the top so when Louis Oosthuizen finished in a three-way tie for fifth in the Dunhill Links Championship. That ends a streak of 778 consecutive weeks inside the top so, dating to when Woods was No. 61 on Oct 13, 1996. Woods, who has not played since missing the cut at the PGA Championship, returns to competition this week at the Frys.com Open at CordeValle in northern California. WhhhaOn CloclNBA owners, Plavars Saelllaal NEW YORK -They don' t have a deal yet, and they are just about out of time. After some two years of on-and-off negotiations, that's about all NBA players and owners agree on. The gaps in their financial proposals have been so great that they sometimes decide it' s best to just talk about something else. Now they have to figure it out quickly. Without at least getting very close to the framework of a new collective bargaining agreement this weekend, hopes of the 2011-12 season starting on time would be all but lost. "We realize that the calendar, the clock, the watch, whatever you want to say, is running out in terms of starting our regular season on time. So we're going to try to get some things done this weekend and see what we can do, said the Lakers' Derek Fisher, president of the players association. lick's Big oav Goes For Naught In Eagles' loss PHILADELPHIA-The frown on Michael Vick's face emphasized how bitter the Philadelphia Eagles' latest loss was. Vick had one of the best days of his career with a personal high of 416 yards passing and 30 completions, added 7S yards rushing and two touchdown passes. It was all for naught as the Eagles lost their third straight, blowing a 20-point lead and falling to San Francisco 24-23 on Sunday. "We've got to dig deep," Vick said. "It's right there for everybody to see what is taking place, how it's been done, what hasn't been done and what needs to be done." Vick did about all he could, only to see the Eagles MICHAEL VICK fall apart on defense in the second half. He was at his scrambling best and his one interception was tipped by DeSean Jackson directly to cornerback Carlos Rogers. His bruised right hand, protected by a padded pink glove, didn't slow him a bit. Italian league Arranging Deal For Brvant Signing ROME -The Italian basketball league was attempting Saturday to solve scheduling problems so Virtus Bologna can sign Kobe Bryant during the NBA lockout. Virtus Bologna President Claudio Sabatini has told The Associated Press he's "very confident" he can complete the deal for the Los Angeles Lakers star. The 10-game contract would be worth more than $3 million, but hinges on other clubs changing their schedules to Bologna has five home games during the span.

DELONTE WEST In case the All-Star front court players appearing on episodes of Law & Order: SVU hasn't clued you in, the NBA is still in a lockout. According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, commissioner David Stern i s aiming to strike a deal with the players' union this weekend. But just in case that doesn't work out, there is one player who seems to be very motivated to find honest work outside of basketball . Delonte West. The free agent guard tweeted Wednesday evening that he has applied for a job at Regency Furniture. "Applied at Regency Furniture, need a 2nd job to stay afloat during the lockout," he wrote, including a picture of his application. 11-Year-Oid Benched For Making Too Manv Touchdowns DEMIAS JIMERSON In the continuing attempt to make this country as soft as possible, there's now the "Madre Hill" rule. A rule that prohibits young players from scoring too many touchdowns Meet 11-year-old running back, Demias Jimerson, who plays in Arkansas' Wilson Intermediate League. Jimerson is so good that the league implemented a little known rule named after Arkansas Razorbacks great, Madre Hill. If a player has already scored three touchdowns and his team has a 14-point lead, then he's banned from the endzone. I'm somewhat confused here. If Jimerson gets close to the goal line, is he supposed to fall down and do snow angels or is there some kind of invisible fence that shocks him and prevents him from scoring? Inquiring minds want to know. However, all is not bad in the world of Jimerson. In seven years, Bret Bielema will ask him to come into the fourth quarter against Austin Peay up 63-3. And after his touchdown, Bielema will tell him to go for two ... you know, because the card told him to. Wade Goes on On David Stern DWYANEWADE Vs. DAVID STERN So word on the NBA streets is that Dwyane Wade yesterday became about 400 NBA players new favorite player. This is because at yesterday's labor negotia tions, David Stern allegedly was talking to the NBA players present in a condescending manner and Wade had enough. He shouted back, "You're not pointing your finger at me. I'm not your child." For good measure, Wade kept on referring to Stern as "David." After the Wade smack down, the star players stormed out of the meeting and it took Billy Hunter to calm them down and ask them to return. Supposedly Hunter did this as a big favor to Stern who was facing a ton of embarrassment. You can't blame Wade. He's severely underpaid compared to what a star like him generates for the league. Economists have speculated in an open market system the NBA elite stars would all be worth over $50 million a year. BEN WALLACE BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, MI -Authorities in suburban Detroit say Detroit Pistons center Ben Wallace has been charged with drunken driving and unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon after a traffic stop. Bloomfield Township police said Thursday that the 37-year-old Wallace was arrested about 3 a.m. Saturday after officers observed a Cadillac Escalade being driven erratically. Police said they found an unloaded pistol in a backpack. Officers say Wallace was given a blood-alcohol test and he was above Michigan's legal limit of o.o8 percent. Police declined to provide further details. Wallace, who helped the Pistons win the 2004 NBA title, was arraigned and released on a $5,000 personal bond. His next court hearing is Monday.

Some members of the organization already consider Johnson's chances of playing in Week 5 "extremely slim.

He is scheduled for a Monday MRI, so no one can be exactly sure yet how long Johnson will be sidelined. Owners can add Jacoby Jones in the meantime.

GEORGIA -Sent to death row 20 years ago Troy Davis was celebrated as 'martyr and foot soldier Saturday by more than 1,000 people who packed the pews at his funeral and pledged to keep fighting the death penalty. Family activists and supporters who spent years trying to persuade judges and Geor gia prison officials that Davis was innocent were unable to prevent his execution Sept. 21. But the crowd that filled Savannah's Jonesville Baptist Church on Saturday seemed less interested in pausing in remorse than showing a resolve to capitalize on the attention Davis' case brought to capital punishment in the U. S. Benjamin Todd Jealous, national president of the NAACP, brought the crowd to its feet in a chant of "I am. Troy Davis" -the slogan supporters used to paint Davis as an everyman forced to face the executioner by a faulty justice system. Jealous noted that Davis professed his innocence even in his final words. "Troy's last words that night were he told us to keep fighting until his name is cleared in Georgia," Jealous said. "But most. important, keep fighting until the death penalty is abolished and this can never be done to anyone else."
