Police: Three Teens Stole Car, Killing 6-Year-Old Boy in Back Seat


Three Mississippi teenagers were arrested after a 6-year-old boy was killed in the back seat of a stolen car, police said.

Byron McBride, 19, along with D’Allen Washington and Dwan Wakefield, who are both 17, were charged with capital murder in connection with the child’s death, the Associated Press reported.
Police found 6-year-old Kingston Frazier with multiple gunshot wounds in the back of his mother’s stolen car that was abandoned in Gluckstadt, 15 miles north of Jackson, the state capital.
Authorities say Frazier went missing around 1 a.m. Thursday after a man drove a Toyota Camry out of a supermarket parking lot in Jackson.
Nine hours later, a man reported the missing vehicle found on a dead-end road in Gluckstadt.
Ebony Archie, the child’s mother, collapsed and broke down in sobs when she heard the news that her son had been killed at the district attorney’s office in Jackson.
Archie’s family members said that Ebony had just picked up Frazier from his grandmother’s house and decided to go the store to pick up party supplies for Frazier’s kindergarten graduation when the men broke into her car and drove away.
“She feels guilty for the fact that she decided to go inside the store and leave the car running when she went inside the store,” David Archie, Ebony Archie’s uncle, told WLBT.
Wakefield told investigators that McBride was the only one out of the three who was responsible for actually killing Frazier and stealing the vehicle.
Wakefield, McBride, and Washington all face charges of capital murder and will be tried as adults. However, only McBride could face the death penalty because of a Supreme Court ruling that outlawed the death penalty for anyone younger than 18.
The three of them are being held without bail in Madison County and are expected to appear in court Monday.


Some Black Lives Don’t Matter

Black-on-black homicide is rampant, but professional agitators couldn’t care less.

Another cell-phone video that didn’t make it to CNN
 or MSNBC: Last November, 33-year-old Antwan 
McNutt beat a man to death with a bottle of liquor 
on the South Side of Chicago. Onlookers took video 
and posted it to Facebook; no one intervened to help. 
has prior convictions for manufacturing and 
delivering a controlled substance, attempted 
aggravated carjacking, possession of a stolen motor 
vehicle, and battery and resisting arrest, according 
to  DNA Info. But he was back on the streets 
committing more mayhem, contrary to the “mass 
incarceration” conceit that black males are targeted 
with endless draconian punishment for minor 
transgressions of public order.
We rightly hold our police officers to the highest standards of conduct. Had a cop beaten a black man to death it would justifiably have been international news, especially if the beating had been caught on video. Likewise, if a white man had beaten a black man to death, it would have been international news and cause for public mourning and admonition. But the routine taking of black lives by other blacks generates no interest in the mainstream media. Forty-three hundred people, including two dozen children under the age of 12, were shot in Chicago last year. Had 4,300 white people been shot, there would have been a revolution, and the media would have set up headquarters in the city to cover the breakdown of law and order. But because the victims were nearly all black, few pay attention—besides the police.
Nor have the Black Lives Matter activists, who pour out by the thousands, sometimes to riot, in the case of alleged officer misuse of force, ever protested the killing of blacks by other blacks. If one-one-hundredth of the attention that has been paid to phantom police racism over the last two decades had been devoted to rebuilding the black family, no one would be talking about policing today. Policing is an epiphenomenon of crime. If you want fewer police in your neighborhood, make sure that people are not killing each other.
