Bus Driver Charged with Vehicular Homicide Allegedly Asked Kids Before Crashing Bus In Chattanooga, TN … “Are You Ready To Die”
HE SAID WHAT?
According to reports, 24-year-old bus driver, Johnthony Walker, allegedly asked the children aboard the school bus before crashing it in Chattanooga, Tennessee, ‘if they were ready to die”. What? Walker was arrested Tuesday and charged with five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless driving and reckless endangerment. Police are looking into speed as a possible factor for the accident; however, with the cameras on board and other devices, it is possible that we will know what was said on the bus prior to this horrific accident.
Parents of some of the children who survived a deadly school bus crash in Chattanooga are starting to shed some light on the moments leading up to the crash, which killed five kids and injured more than 20 others.
CBS News Correspondent Mark Strassmann spoke to a mother who had three children on the bus, one of whom died. The mother says that her other two children told her that just before the crash, the bus driver asked the children if they were ready to die.
“The mother says that in the moments before the crash, the bus driver said something to the effect of ‘Are you all ready to die?’ and then seconds later, the bus was on its side and five kids were killed,” said Strassmann.
The 24-year-old bus driver, Johnthony Walker, was arrested and charged with five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless driving and reckless endangerment.
CHICAGO HAD ITS DEADLIEST MONTH IN TWO DECADES AS BARACK OBAMA WAS GOLFING ON MARTHA’S VINEYARD …
As Barack Obama golfed on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, the city of Chicago witnessed its deadliest month in 20 years. Chicago had 90 homicides last month, compared to 54 in 2015. Shootings up, homicides up, crime up in the city that Barack Obama calls his home. A city that has been under failed Democrat rule and policies for decades. The 90 killed in August brings the murder count in Chicago to 483 for the year so far, which is more than the combined total in Los Angeles and New York City, which have seen a total of 393 murders. And where is Black Lives Matters? I guess these killings don’t count because they do not fit their narrative that police are killing blacks. Sadly, Chicago garnered nation’s attention last week when Nykea Aldridge, the cousin of Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade and a mother of four, was killed while pushing a stroller in Woodlawn. But in typical fashion all the MSM could do was focus on a tweet by Donald Trump, rather than the “killing fields” that are going on in Chicago.
August 2016 saw the most homicides in a single month in Chicago in 20 years, according to newly released statistics from the Chicago Police Department.
The city saw 90 homicide victims last month compared with 54 killed in the city during the same period in 2015, city records show.
Last month saw a total of 384 shooting incidents and 472 shooting victims, police said. There were 217 nonfatal shootings in August 2015.
The 90 people killed in August 2016 is the highest number of homicides in a single month in Chicago since August 1996, according to police records.
Through Aug. 31, Chicago had recorded 467 homicides, according to CPD, putting the city on pace for 700 by year’s end. Chicago has not seen more than 600 homicides in a year since 2003 and not more than 700 homicides since 1998, records show.
Police said murder arrests have increased by 18 percent and gun arrests have increased by 5 percent compared to August 2015.
More than 200 people, mostly documented gang members, were arrested last month in enforcement missions targeting individuals “who contribute to the cycle of violence in some neighborhoods,” according to police.
I have always wondered why inner city gang violence was not handled in the same manner as terrorism. Some one needs to tell me what the difference is? Flush out the evil, the drugs and the crime, make it possible for children to get an education in a decent school (yes that means vouchers) and provide a path where a generation of children can break this sick cycle. How is it that no one has stepped up to the plate and dome this? Instead, the same party has been in power forever, with failed liberal policies and just allows the criminal element to fester in the inner cities. Before the United States decides to take in any more immigrants and refugees, maybe we might want to get our own house in order first.
Remains Found of 22 Year Old Chelsea Bruck Who Went Missing after Attending a Halloween Party on 10/26/14 in Newport, MI
The remains have been found of 22 year old Chelsea Bruck in Monroe County’s Ash Township, Michigan. Bruck’s skeletal remains were discovered Friday afternoon in dense woods near Interstate 275. The Wayne County Medical Examiner positively identified the baked body found as Bruck on Saturday. Chelsea Bruck went missing on 10/26/14 after attending a Halloween party in Frenchtown Township, Michigan. Previously, Bruck’s handmade Poison Ivy Halloween costume had been found on April 5 at a vacant industrial site in Flat Rock.
Monroe County Sheriff Dale Malone stated at a news conference, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bruck family.” He also said, “evidence at the scene indicated it was a homicide. In all likelihood, the crime was committed at or near where the body was located.”
The missing persons case now becomes a homicide case. Sheriff Malone believes that the person who dumped her body at this location was familiar with the area and the railroad tracks.
A body discovered Friday afternoon in dense woods near Interstate 275 in Monroe County has been identified as Chelsea Bruck, who has been missing since October.
Wayne County Medical Examiner spokesman Ryan Bridges said the body was positively identified as Bruck, 22, on Saturday.
“It’s been ID’d through dental records,” said Bridges.
Monroe County Sheriff Press Conference – Chelsea Bruck investigation
Bruck’s body was found at 2 p.m. in a wooded parcel by a railroad track near Carleton, said Heath Velliquette, chief deputy of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office .
A property owner was using a bulldozer to clear heavy brush on his land when the machine malfunctioned, said Velliquette.
While waiting to resume work with the heavy machinery, the property owner stumbled upon the body, said the sheriff’s office.
The decomposed body appeared to be in the woods for “months,” said Velliquette.
He declined to say whether the body was buried in any way.
No weapon was discovered at the site, he said.
Because of the long period the body was in the woods, the sheriff’s office used an anthropologist to help determine the identity, he said.
Body found in Ash Twp. confirmed as Chelsea Bruck’s

Driver Archie Brown Jr. & 15 Year Old Boy Shot Dead after 2 Year Old Child Ran Into Street and Was Hit by Car and Killed in Milwaukee, WI
Three dead in Milwaukee, Wisconsen after child hit by car after walking into street …
Really, has this what has it has come to? Following a motor vehicle accident where a 2 year old child was struck by a van after the child ran out into the street, the driver did the right thing and stopped. What happened next was nothing short of criminal and as assassination. As reported at JS-Online, had Archie Brown Jr. committed a hit-and-run, he and a 15-year-old boy likely would still be alive today. However, he did not and moments later the 41 year old driver was shot dead and a 15 year old boy was shot and seriously wounded as well. The 15 year old boy was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries and died during surgery.
Milwaukee police say three people are dead in connection with an incident that began as a fatal accident and turned into a double shooting.
It happened in the 4600 block of N. 48th Street on Sunday, April 12th just after 5:00 p.m. Police had much of Wahl Park blocked off as they worked the scene.
Police say an initial investigation has revealed a two-year-old child ran into the street and was struck by a vehicle.
The 41-year-old man who was driving remained at the scene.
Police say the driver and a 15-year-old boy were then shot. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The 15-year-old boy was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries. Police say he died during surgery.
UPDATE I: Mayor Tom Barrett … Gunman, apparently enraged that a van had struck a 2-year-old boy Sunday on Milwaukee’s northwest side, not only “assassinated” the driver of the van, but cut down the toddler’s brother, who had rushed to the scene.
Archie Brown Jr., 40, was driving the van about 5:10 p.m. Sunday in the 4600 block of N. 48th St., near Wahl Park, when he hit 2-year-old Damani T. Terry, who had darted into the road, according to Milwaukee police.
Brown immediately jumped out and — by all accounts — was grieving and upset as he stood over the body. Rasheed T. Chiles, 15, who had been attending a party at a nearby house with his toddler brother, was at the scene as well.
A gunman shot and killed Brown, according to police.
“Someone got angry,” Barrett said. “Someone took a gun and basically assassinated this gentleman.”
Chiles also was hit, according to Barrett, and died during surgery Sunday night.
Milwaukee police continued on Monday to work on identifying the shooting suspect.
In the late afternoon, Attorney Michael Hupy offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who pulled the trigger. An upset Hupy said it was the fourth time he has offered a personal reward in a murder case.
