Richmond Police Officer indicted with murder of Chesterfield teen

A Richmond Police officer, who was off duty at the time of the incident, has been indicted with second-degree murder in relation to the shooting death of Paterson Brown Jr. on Oct. 17, 2015.

David L. Cobb was indicted by a Chesterfield County Grand Jury Wednesday for second-degree murder and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony in relation to the incident.

At about 9:40 a.m. on Oct. 17, 2015, Cobb, a Richmond Police officer who was off-duty at the time, was having a vehicle washed at the Sunoco gas station at 7559 Midlothian Turnpike.

Police said Brown,18, who was not employed by the gas station or car wash, entered the off-duty officer’s car and drove it through the wash. That’s when the off-duty officer approached Brown and told him to get out of the car. That, police said, led to a confrontation.

“During the confrontation, the suspect was shot and he was transported to Chippenham Hospital where he later died, a Chesterfield Police spokesman said.

Police said that no weapon was recovered in the vehicle or on Brown’s person. Surveillance video recovered, during the investigation indicates that during the confrontation the off-duty officer physically struggled with Brown, police said.

Cobb turned himself in Thursday. He is currently being held at the Chesterfield County Jail without bond.

We live in the country where carjacking is punished with death but murder of kid with a toy gun is regarded as justified action. Both cases have something in common: black man dies at the hands of police. African Americans are expected to be violent. Why? Such distrust makes these sad things possible. People shouldn’t be judged by the color of their skin. Prejudice should fade away. Slavery was abolished but racism is still existing. It’s all wrong. White people, look at us without prejudice. We want to live!

Recap: The NYC serial stabber's crazed, bloody trail
  • 30 hours – the period key suspect Maksim Gelman was on the run
  • three people were killed as a result of fatal stabbings in the NYC area; three others were attacked
  • one more person was killed in a hit-and-run accident by the serial stabber while he was trying to escape
  • four cars stolen by the suspect while on the run, including two carjackings
  • many death threats against those who got in Gelman’s crazed way
  • 100’s of police officers were hunting him down the entire time source

» A man who went berzerk: Lead suspect Gelman, a 23-year-old from the Sheepshead Bay area of Brooklyn who had a criminal record, reportedly killed his stepfather, his girlfriend and her mother, and proved to be a danger to anyone who got into his way. The situation ended quite dramatically in the subway system, with Gelman hiding in the system, eventually getting on a train near Penn Station, stabbing a man in one of the rail cars, and eventually getting caught by an army of police officers, some with machine guns, under Times Square. What might be a normal episode of “Law & Order” makes for a dramatic, pulse-raising real-life experience.

Hey You! Yes You. Read This.

I got this in an e-mail and thought it would better to post this online and hope it could reach even more people. Please take the time to read this, it could be very helpful to you.


WARNING FROM POLICE

This is the new thing these days with people out of work and needing cash. Beware, it’s headed our way.

Warning..!!!! Warning..!!!! Warning..!!!!

Just last weekend on Friday night we parked in a public parking area. As we drove away I noticed a sticker on the rear window of the car. When I took it off after I got home, it was a receipt for gas. Luckily my friend told me not to stop as it could be someone waiting for me to get out of the car.. Then we received this email yesterday:

WARNING FROM POLICE

THIS APPLIES TO BOTH WOMEN AND MEN
BEWARE OF PAPER ON THE BACK WINDOW OF YOUR VEHICLE–NEW WAY TO DO CARJACKINGS (NOT A JOKE)

Heads up everyone! Please, keep this circulating.. You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. You start the engine and shift into reverse.

When you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking space, you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors, and jump out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view. When you reach the back of your car, that is when the carjackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off. They practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.

And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car.

So now the carjacker has your car, your home address, your money, and your keys. Your home and your whole identity are now compromised!

BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED.

If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive away. Remove the paper later. And be thankful that you read this e-mail. I hope you will forward this to friends and family, especially to women. A purse contains all kinds of personal information and identification documents, and you certainly do NOT want it to fall into the wrong hands.

Please keep this going and tell all your friends.

On October 25th, 1994, Susan Smith reported to police that her two sons, 3-year-old Michael and 1-year-old Alex, were kidnapped by a black man during a carjacking. On November 2nd, Susan and her ex-husband David Smith appeared on television to plead for the return of their boys. The next day, Smith went to church, where she confessed to strapping her sons into the backseat of her car and pushing it into a lake. One week before the murders, her wealthy lover broke off the relationship because he did not want children. Smith was sentenced to life in prison. Twenty years later, Smith sent a letter to The State newspaper, claiming: “There was no motive as it was not a planned event. I was not in my right mind.”

A brutal incident in Stoke Newington some time ago saw a young man brutally slain, stabbed to death, at a takeaway shop. He suffered many wounds including a stab through the eyeball yet miraculously survived, and hopefully will now lead a long happy life. This stabbing may not of been prevented with a stab proof vests or protective clothing.

The three jailed men Corey White, 23, Ruben Loufimpou, 22, and Yahaya Ibrahim Usmen, 24 repeatedly stabbed 15-year-old gang rival member Carlon Smith, a number of times after chasing him into the Chicken Klub takeaway in Shacklewell Lane, Stoke Newington. One stab wound went through the back of the Carlon Smith’s head and exited through the top of his mouth, whilst another pierced his eyeball. Mr Smith had a number of other wounds including a punctured lung. Sadly Mr Smith is now completely blind in one eye, though with modern technology and optical advances, that may one day be rectified.

Chicken Klub Stoke Newington

Snaresbrook Crown Court heard the full details of these sickening events, which raises debate about gangs and self defence through protective clothing and armour. In reality, this man had little chance against three older men, and even if he was well armoured, the end result could have been just as unfortunate.

The three defendants were cleared of attempted murder but convicted of grievous bodily harm with intent. The trial was two weeks long and Mr Smith refused to give evidence. Likely out of fear, or upholding the rules of gang culture which say you must not talk to the police or grass on others (even if they have brutally stabbed you)

This case shows the brutality of gang culture when young men kill each other, often over nothing more than an insult or small debt. Members of the public also are at risk, when being caught up in the middle of gang warfare, or when the gangs target the public with carjackings and enforcing drug dealing debts. The knife culture in major cities around the UK sees a large number of knife point robberies, stabbings and deaths.

Sentencing was as follows:

Corey White, of Banner House, Roscoe Street, Shoreditch, sentenced to 16 years.

Judge Simon Wilkinson said: “You’ve been convicted on what I regard as overwhelming evidence, and you’ve expressed no sympathy for the injuries to your victim and deny your responsibility for causing them.”

Yahaya Ibrahim Usmen, sentenced to 16 years.

Mr Usmen was studying for a qualification in oil and gas management at the time of the attack after spending several years working for his family’s cosmetics business in Nigeria

Judge Wilkinson said: “It’s clear from the CCTV footage that you led this attack and you have shown no real remorse. However, I take into account that you are still a young man and capable of making something of your life should you choose to absent yourself from gangs.”

Ruben Loufimpou, sentenced to 12 years.

Judge Wilkinson said: “You chose to join in this group attack, but I accept that of the three you were the last to arrive on the scene, although it has to be said you were the last to leave it.”

Shoot. Carjacking gone wrong au?

Root has done this before loads of time in record speed without a problem; she did learn from the best.

Yet, her best was not present at the moment, considering her hands are trembling from the freezing cold and her body is shivering under drenched clothes.

There’s a tap on the window followed by a smooth voice asking, “Ma'am, do we have a problem here?” and Root looks up to see Shaw standing there with a shit eating grin on her face, donning a police uniform.

After Sundance's 'Goat,' Nick Jonas Has Found A New Way To View Masculinity

Nick Jonas is feeling vulnerable.

The youngest Jonas brother has struggled with the emotional candor that’s paramount to songwriting, knowing his lyrics can invite any sort of interpretation his worshipful fan base imparts. Now he’s part of a movie that challenges the stereotypical antithesis of vulnerability: masculinity. In “Goat,” Jonas is a key player in an exposé about the brutal turns macho aggression can take.

The brooding, weighty “Goat” premiered at the ongoing Sundance Film Festival, where reactions have been generally favorable. Directed by Andrew Neel (“King Kelly”), the movie is based on Brad Land’s 2004 memoir about a college freshman who pledges his cooler older brother’s fraternity and is subjected to barbarous hazing rituals, mere months after carjackers beat him to a pulp late one night. Jonas plays Brett, the elder brother, who is complicit in his sibling’s “hell week” hazing – extreme drinking, eating from a toilet bowl while blindfolded, goat defilement – until the brutalities bring his younger half, Brad (“Pride” star Ben Schnetzer), and their classmates to a breaking point.

As Jonas sees it, the project is a treatise on the “standards that men hold each other to at times.” Using emotionally clipped dialogue overflowing with butch monikers like “dude” and “bro” and “man,” Neel, who co-wrote the script with David Gordon Green and Mike Roberts, indicts the young men’s affective remove as much as he does their violent amusements. At a time when culture at large is questioning the performative nature of gender, “Goat” is a minor reinforcement of the ills of hard-nosed machismo. Even Brett and Brad can’t conjure up the wherewithal to discuss their emotions with much frankness. Their conversations are caring but superficial.

“There’s a loss of identity in the beginning, an inability to be transparent,” Jonas told The Huffington Post while discussing the film at Sundance. “In that setting, they get out of hand. One of the scariest things to me was, I really feel like I’m a pretty even-keeled person with a good outlook and respect level, but in that environment, deep within the character, you see how easy it is to go to that place because you’re one-upping each other and it’s this heavy environment filled with young men trying to make an impression. It’s dangerous. It’s something that I became very conscious of afterwards.”

Jonas understands that telling stories like that of “Goat” won’t overturn the problems the movie addresses. (In 2013, for example, a New York student died during a blindfolded ritual.) But for someone whose pop career has yielded arguably one of music’s most enthusiastic fan bases, including a slew of gay followers he “loves,” the film reminded Jonas that vulnerability is a virtue. When he’s onstage or in the studio, Jonas doesn’t have the advantage of couching his emotions in the fiction of a script. (Granted, he does have the advantage of songwriting partners and co-producers.)

“When I’m [playing] a character, I can look at it and know it’s not me and not be concerned with how it looks,” Jonas said. “[Songwriting is] something that I own – it’s my property, it’s my music, it’s my voice. There are those moments that I get uncomfortable and I have to check myself and say, ‘Be vulnerable.’ That’s the thing that’s going to make people the most connected to me and make me the most free as a person. It’s finding a new way to look at it, and I’m trying to do that more in my own life. Maybe this movie influenced that, and maybe it’s my family. I don’t really know, but it’s a culmination of a lot of things that I think are a positive progression.”
