MUGSHOT MAYHEM: MINNESOTA WOMAN KILLS BOYFRIEND, HIDES BODY In FREEZER!!!

Meet JETUAN WHEELER!!!

Prosecutors have charged JETUAN WHEELER, 29, for beating her boyfriend to death, taping his body up in plastic and hiding it in a freezer because he was trying to break up with her.

ROLLING OUT reports that JETUAN WHEELER is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of her late boyfriend, 58, at their Shorewood home in Minneapolis. Authorities have not released the name of the victim.
According to CBS News, relatives of the murdered man expected him to return to his Chicago metown. When he failed to do so and was not answering the phone, the relatives went to the Minneapolis home looking for him. Wheeler swore to them that he had already returned to Chicago.

That’s when relatives notified authorities.

Wheeler tried to give investigators the same story she gave to the deceased man’s relatives, but to no avail. Detectives say when they searched the couple’s house Aug. 21, they found bloody carpet under Wheeler’s mattress.

Blood spatter led them to the garage where they found the body in the freezer. An autopsy report revealed multiple blunt trauma to the head and neck and multiple lacerations on the eyes and hands, which the medical examiner attributes to defensive wounds as he tried to fight Wheeler off in a futile attempt to escape

When Wheeler was being arrested, investigators noted that her three children, aged 10, 8 and 7 have disappeared. They believe she hid the children so that they won’t be taken into custody.

If Wheeler is convicted, she faces 40 years in prison.

DUNKIN' DONUTS CATCHING FIRE For BLACKFACE ADVERTISING!!!

"Racist Doughnut Ad"
A human rights group has made DUNKIN' DONUTS, the popular doughnut chain, their new target after an ad promoting a new flavor popped up.

MADAME NOIRE reports the CHARCOAL DONUT is one of the new flavors in Dunkin’ Donuts Thailand and the ad features a woman painted in all black with bright pink lips. The ad allegedly reminds people of the stereotypes placed on black people in terms of looks many years ago. Human Rights Watch deputy Asia director Phil Robertson says it was shocked to see the ad considering Dunkin’ is based in America:
“It’s both bizarre and racist that Dunkin’ Donuts thinks that it must color a woman’s skin black and accentuate her lips with bright pink lipstick to sell a chocolate doughnut.  Dunkin’ Donuts should immediately withdraw this ad, publicly apologize to those it’s offended and ensure this never happens again.”
Although Dunkin’ Donuts Thailand operates independently of the U.S. properties, Karen Raskopf, chief communications officer for Dunkin’ Brands, says they do recognize the problem. In a statement to MSNBC, Raskopf said:
“Dunkin’ Donuts recognizes the insensitivity of this spot and on behalf of our Thailand franchisee and our company, we apologize for any offense it caused. We are working with our franchisee to immediately pull the television spot and to change the campaign.”
But while it appears the powers that be over at Dunkin’ Donuts want the ad to come down, the CEO of the Thai location says he doesn’t see the problem at all and charged the drama to “paranoid American thinking.”
“It’s absolutely ridiculous.  We’re not allowed to use black to promote our doughnuts? I don’t get it. What’s the big fuss? What if the product was white and I painted someone white, would that be racist? I’m sorry, but this is a marketing campaign and it’s working very well for us.”
Salhani, who says it was his daughter who was used as the model, says that not everyone in the world is paranoid about race and the marketing campaign has worked very well for them.
It hasn’t. In fact, according to The Associated Press, no one in Thailand is concerned about the ad at all.
So what do YOU think; is this edgy advertising, or; another example of  racism disguised as advertising???

HOLLA!!!

MUGSHOT MAYHEM: GEORGIA TEEN CONVICTED Of MURDERING BABY In STROLLER!!!

demarquise-elkins-found-quilty
Meet De'MARQUISE ELKINS!!!

De'MARQUISE ELKINS, 18, was convicted of murder in the shooting of a baby who was riding in a stroller alongside his mom in a town in coastal Georgia despite the defense’s attempt to cast guilt upon several others, including the child’s parents.

Jurors deliberated about two hours before finding De’Marquise Elkins guilty of 11 counts, including two counts of felony murder and one count of malice murder in the March 21 killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in Brunswick. The man’s mother, Karimah Elkins, was on trial alongside him and was found guilty of tampering with evidence but acquitted of lying to police.

De’Marquise Elkins faces life in prison when he is sentenced at a later date. At the time of the shooting he was 17, too young to face the death penalty under Georgia law.

His lead defense attorney, public defender Kevin Gough, vowed to appeal the verdict. A judge denied his request for the teen to be out on bond during the appeal.

“Marky Elkins and his family are confident that he will receive another trial in which he will be able to present fully his defense,” Gough said. “Mr. Elkins will eventually be exonerated.”
Karimah Elkins’ attorney, Wrix McIlvaine, said he would talk to his client and that they would likely appeal.

Sherry West testified that she was walking home from the post office with her son the morning of the killing. A gunman demanding her purse, shot her in the leg and shot her baby in the face after she told him she had no money, she said.

Prosecutors, who declined comment after the verdict, said during two-week trial that De’Marquise Elkins and an accomplice, 15-year-old Dominique Lang, are the ones who stopped West. Prosecutors say the older teen pointed a small .22-caliber revolver at West and demanded money. When West refused several times to turn over the money, Elkins fired a warning shot, shot the woman in the leg and the baby between the eyes, prosecutors said.

The killing in the port city of Brunswick drew national attention, and the trial was moved to the Atlanta suburb of Marietta owing to extensive publicity locally.

Prosecutors have said information from Elkins’ mother and sister led investigators to a pond where they found the revolver. Elkins’ sister also was charged with evidence tampering.

Lang, who was a key prosecution witness in Elkins’ trial, is set to go to trial at a later date.

West told The Associated Press that she didn’t want to say too much following the verdict because there are still other trials pending in the case and she will be a witness and she will testify at Elkins’ sentencing.

“I knew why I was there and I knew that I didn’t have my baby anymore,” she said. “In the beginning I was in shock. Now things are kind of really setting in. But I’m hanging in there.”
West spent hours on the stand during the trial and was grilled by the defense on her personal and medical history.

“I was a little nervous up on the stand and just being asked so many personal questions by the defense attorney,” she said in a telephone interview. “It was embarrassing.”

The defense tried throughout the trial to prove that the investigation was flawed and that police refused to consider other leads or investigate further once they had Elkins in custody the day after the killing

“They finished their case in 25 hours. Everything else they did after that they just sugarcoated,” Lockwood said.

2. Speaking of Picnics…grab a blanket, pack up a delicious meal, bring along a bottle of wine, and head out to a local park or lake. If you’re doing this at night, drive until you find a scenic location far from city lights. It’s a great way to spend quality time with each other.

3. Hit the beach. Many beaches and lakes are free to visit, which makes them an ideal spot for a romantic rendezvous.

4. Tour a local winery or brewery. Many brewery and winery tours are free – including free samples!!!

5. Visit a gallery/art show. Many cities have local art shows or photography exhibitions that are free to visit. Some even offer complimentary hors d’oeuvres, like wine and cheese.

6. Watch movies. You can have a very romantic time just staying home and watching one of your favorite films together. Take turns picking the movie(s).

7. Go for a drive. A relaxing drive does wondrous things for the soul, and offers a great opportunity for couples to catch up in a quiet, relaxed environment.

8. Get active. Going on a date AND burning some calories? There are so many possibilities. Like to walk? Pack some water and healthy snacks and go for a hike. Want to explore? Go for a scenic bike ride and discover new areas together.

9. Volunteer. There are volunteer opportunities for all passions, so just find the one that best suits you both and have fun!!!

10. Attend amateur night at a coffeehouse or bar. Many local coffeehouses and bars have amateur nights, where people can come in and perform or read poetry and you get a great night’s entertainment for the price of a cup of coffee or a drink.
