Kisa Jackson, Mom Who is Black Has a Message in Response to McKinney, TX Uproar … “Parents Need to Take Ownership” … ‘The White Kids Weren’t Running. The Black Kids Were”
WOW, WORDS OF WISDOM FOR PARENTS AND KIDS … PARENTS TAKE OWNERSHIP AND TEACH YOUR CHILDREN TO RESPECT AUTHORITY FIGURES.
Take a good listen to Kisa Jackson in the below VIDEO. Its a point of view and advice from a black mom that you will not hear in the liberal MSM because it does not fit their agenda or narrative that all white cops are racist and out of control and all black kids are angels. The truth is there is bad and good on all sides. Kisa Jackson said in her selfie video, she said parents need to take ownership of what their children are doing. Jackson then went through what happened in the video and the actions of what the kids were doing, posing as threats to the police officers.
A Texas mother’s video response to the national furor over a YouTube clip showing a McKinney police officer grabbing a 15-year-old girl and throwing her to the ground has gone viral, gaining more than 1.5 million views as of Wednesday morning.
Kisa Jackson delivered a passionate response in a clip uploaded to her Facebook page on Monday, defending Cpl. Eric Casebolt’s right to draw his gun and imploring parents to “take ownership” and teach their children to respect authority figures. Casebolt resigned Tuesday amid the ongoing investigation.
“I think ownership needs to be placed where it should be and that’s on the parents,” Jackson said. “Do I think the incident was excessive? Yes — but do I think it was necessary? Yes.”

NJ State Police Battle Violent Concert Go’ers at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford at Hip-Hop and R&B Hot 97 Summer Jam 2015 Concert (VIDEO)
VIOLENCE ERUPTS AT HOT97 SUMMER JAM CONCERT …
In a year in which unruly crowds, violence and throwing bottles at police officers has become the norm … add the disturbance at last nights Hot 97 Summer Jam concert to the list. Out of control concert go’ers threw bottles at police as seen below in the VIDEO. Just curious, was that the Meadowlands or a third world country by the looks of the violence, tear gas and out of control behavior. The concert was headlined by Kendrick Lamar and Chris Brown. Really folks, who ever remembers seeing this at a Beach Boys concert?
A major hip-hop and R&B concert erupted into violence after State Police lobbed tear gas at concertgoers who were throwing bottles at police in the parking lot.
Witnesses say the disturbance began around 7 p.m. due to an altercation between concertgoers. That’s when officials shut the gates to the show, the Hot 97 Summer Jam at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, causing a logjam of people at the MetLife gate, which in turn led to metal barriers being toppled and thrown.
After concertgoers began throwing bottles in response, police then took up a defensive V-shaped position in front of the stadium gates as a barrage of bottles pelted the officers.
An armored State Police vehicle came into the middle of the crowd and activated a piercing alarm to try to disrupt the crowd of about 1,000 people.
New Jersey State Police blocking gates outside of the Hot 97 Summer Jam 2015 at MetLife Stadium had bottles thrown at them by angry people in the crowd who were trying to get inside — some without tickets — and they later used tear gas to try to disperse them, according to officials.
Crowds at major hip hop concert became upset Sunday night when the gates were closed and blocked off by police in riot gear. An armored state police vehicle began blasting a piercing loud noise to try to disperse the crowd and police later deployed tear gas.
State police said crowds of people tried to “illegally” force their way into the sold out concert and became upset when the gates were closed and blocked off. Police said crowds began climbing over fences and forcing their way through security personnel. The gates to the stadium were shut and troopers were called in to help maintain order, police said.
Statement regarding tonight’s Summer Jam concert at MetLife stadium.
This evening, security personnel at one of the entrance gates to MetLife Stadium were confronted by crowds attempting to illegally enter the sold out Summer Jam concert by climbing over fences and forcing their way through security personnel. The gates have been shut and troopers on site have called for assistance from several nearby stations to help maintain order.
Troopers and stadium security officials are insisting that all people outside of the gates depart the MetLife grounds to avoid congestion when the concert lets out. There is no number of arrests available at this time.
This is what happens when you create an atmosphere that the rules do not matter and the police are to be blamed for all situations.
UPDATE I: CBS News – NY, “Barbaric — the way they treat our people is like animals. If there was another concert this would’ve never happened,” said one concertgoer.
Note to concert go’ers, you get treated like you act. Who in their right mind conducts themselves in this manner and does not think their is going to be a reaction by police? Do you think the rules and laws of the United States of America don’t apply to you?
The situation became so volatile, a CBS2 camera man was forced into his vehicle while police apprehended a man on the ground.
“Barbaric — the way they treat our people is like animals. If there was another concert this would’ve never happened,” said one concertgoer.
YIKES … JOSH DUGGAR ADMITS TO MOLESTATION.
TMZ is reporting that Josh Duggar has acknowledged he sexually molested underage girls including some of his sisters. Josh Duggar is the elder son of the reality-TV-famous family from TLC’s “19 Kids And Counting.” The molestation acts occurred when Josh, now 27, was a teen and took place in 2002 and 2003; however, the incidents were not reported to police until 2006. In the wake of the allegations of child molestation, Josh Duggar has resigned his role as executive director of the Family Research Council.
Josh says, “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager. I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret.” He continues, “We spoke with authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling.”
The molestations occurred in 2002 and 2003, when he was 14. He fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping.
Josh’s wife Anna says he confessed his “past teenage mistakes” to her 2 years before he asked her to marry him.
Hmm, I wonder how this will effect the TV show?
In Touch magazine first broke the news of the Duggars’ underage sexual molestation scandal in this week’s magazine. (Note: Josh’s name is redacted from the police report but In Touch has confirmed the passages that refer to him.) See police reports HERE.
According to the police report, Josh fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping, but sometimes they were interacting with him … in one case reading a book.
There was another reported incident 9 months later. According to the police report, the police were not immediately contacted. Instead, Jim Bob, the dad, met with church elders and agreed Josh should be put in a treatment program. The police report says Josh’s mom, Michelle, said it wasn’t really a treatment center … they simply sent Josh to a guy who was remodeling a building to do manual labor.
In 2006, the family was scheduled to appear on “Oprah,” and before the show someone sent an email to Harpo warning that Josh had molested girls. Harpo forwarded the email to a hotline, which triggered a police investigation.
Cops wanted to question Josh, but Jim Bob lawyered him up and Josh declined the invitation.
Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives. When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles everyday. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God’s kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us — even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey — the good times and the difficult times — cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything.
From Josh Duggar:
Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.
From Anna Duggar:
I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. I remember feeling that same shock. It was not at the point of engagement, or after we were married – it was two years before Josh asked me to marry him. When my family and I first visited the Duggar Home, Josh shared his past teenage mistakes. I was surprised at his openness and humility and at the same time didn’t know why he was sharing it. For Josh he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was — even every difficult past mistakes. At that point and over the next two years, Josh shared how the counseling he received changed his life as he continued to do what he was taught. And when you, our sweet fans, first met me when Josh asked me to marry him… I was able to say, “Yes” knowing who Josh really is – someone who had gone down a wrong path and had humbled himself before God and those whom he had offended. Someone who had received the help needed to change the direction of his life and do what is right. I want to say thank you to those who took time over a decade ago to help Josh in a time of crisis. Your investment changed his life from going down the wrong path to doing what is right. If it weren’t for your help I would not be here as his wife — celebrating 6 1/2 years of marriage to a man who knows how to be a gentleman and treat a girl right. Thank you to all of you who tirelessly work with children in crisis, you are changing lives and I am forever grateful for all of you.
20 Year Old University of Colorado Student Berry Tyler Allen Missing Since 4/14/15 in Boulder, CO (Update: Found Safe)
20 year old Berry Tyler Allen, a University of Colorado student, has been missing since April 14, 2015 in Boulder, Colorado. Tyler was reported missing by his parents on Saturday; however, he has not been seen on Thursday, April 11 and last heard from on April 16 when he sent a text message to his friends, according to Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel.
Berry Tyler Allen was reported missing by his parents Saturday. He was last seen April 11 and texted with friends Thursday. He has not been seen or heard from since. He doesn’t own a vehicle or a bicycle.
Allen is described as a 140-pound white man with blond hair and blue eyes.
Allen goes by “Tyler,” and was last heard from on Thursday, April 16, at 1:57 p.m. in a text message to one of his roommates: “Oh, I’m alright, spent one night with a friend and one all nighter at [Norlin] library.” That text explained his whereabouts on Tuesday and Wednesday, and was traced by Allen’s phone service provider to the area around Folsom Field on the CU campus. He was last seen by roommates on Tuesday the 14th, according to his parents.
Allen’s parents, Berry and Sheryl Allen, said that he swiped his Buff Onecard into Macky Auditorium’s main entrance on Sunday, April 12th, but did not get in; he does not have access to the building on his card. Allen is in CU’s University Choir and has a class in Mackey. He attended choir practice on the night of April 13, according to his parents.
Allen is a communications major who transferred to CU in January from Clemson University in South Carolina. He is a second-year student and lives off campus.
Correction: The trail search is meeting tomorrow at 9:30 at the base of the chitaqua trail not 8:30 as previously posted. Thank you all so much for your concern and hope you can join in. We all pray that Tyler will be found safe and well. ?#?FindTylerNow?
UPDATE II: Search continues for missing CU student.
“We got a phone call last Saturday from his roommates that he hasn’t been seen in quite a while,” Sheryl Allen said. “It’s a call no parent wants to hear. It’s a call no one wants to ever receive.”
“He took his guitar, his laptop and a backpack. That is all that is missing from his room, no clothes,” she said. “We’re concerned. He meant to go somewhere temporarily and something happened.”
The Allens have been putting flyers up on buildings around campus. They are following his class schedule and talking to his classmates. They have created a Facebook page called “Find Tyler Now.”
Kim Kobel is the spokesperson for the Boulder Police Department. She says that detectives are working every possibility, but they do need more leads.
FACEBOOK: University of Colorado – Boulder
On Wednesday, there will be an organized search focusing on a popular hiking trail at Chautauqua park.
The Allens flew in from Chicago on Monday, six days after their son was last seen.
Allen attended a choir class April 14 but hasn’t been seen since. On Thursday, he texted his roommates to tell them he had stayed at a friends place and pulled an all-nighter at the library. That was the last anyone heard from Allen. But while canvasing Tuesday, the Allens got their first potential break.
Boulder police ask anyone with information on Allen’s whereabouts to contact Detective Sarah Cantu at 303-441-4328. Those who have information but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-444-3776.
UPDATE IV: Berry Tyler Allen Found Safe.
A CU Boulder student who was reported missing over a week ago has been found and is safe, according to reports from his family.
Allen’s family told FOX31 Denver sister station WGN that the 20-year-old had been found on Sunday morning. A Facebook post to the page of a group dedicated to searching for Allen echoed the good news.
51 Year Old Iona Costello & Her 14 Year Old Daughter Emily Costello Missing Since 3/30/15 in Manhattan, NY (Update: Found Safe)
51 year old Iona Costello and her 14 year old daughter, Emily Costello, have been missing since March 30, 2015 after they traveled to Manhattan, NYC and never returned. Iona and Emily are from Greenport where she owns a farm on the North Fork. A family member Jane Costello said that Iona and Emily went to New York City to see some shows and parked their car in a garage on 3/30/2015. Surveillance video captured Costello and Emily walking out of the Midtown parking garage. Iona Costello and Emily Costello were reported missing on Tuesday, after Emily was absent from school following the spring break. Southold Police said Iona Costello is 5-foot-10, 120 pounds and blonde and her daughter is 5-foot-8, 110 pounds.
According to further reports, calls to their cellphones have gone unanswered and there has been no activity on the mother’s credit cards.

An East End farm owner and her 14-year-old daughter vanished in Manhattan last month after what relatives thought was going to be a short visit to see a few shows.
Cops are looking for Iona Costello, 51, a well-known equestrian from Greenport, and her daughter, Emily, a student at the posh Ross School in East Hampton.
They haven’t been seen since March 30, said Diana Malcolmson, the mother of Iona.
Relatives filed a missing-persons report when Emily didn’t return to school on Tuesday.
Police found their car in a parking garage on 42nd Street Wednesday night, and they appeared happy in surveillance video, Malcolmson said.
UPDATE I: Cops have no leads on missing Long Island mother and daughter after they vanished in New York City.
Could this be a possible reason for the two’s disappearance. According to reports, Emily is Iona Costello’s only child.
“The first thing we look for in these types of investigations is telephone calls, emails and credit card use,” Southold Town Police Chief Martin Flatley told the Daily News.
“We have nothing.”
“We’ve heard different theories from different people,” Flatley added. “It’s all speculation at this point.”
Costello, who runs a horse farm in the quaint seaside town on the tip of the North Fork, has been “under a lot of stress” fueled by a legal battle over her dead husband’s will, a family member told The News.
Costello was married to George Costello Sr., a construction manager who died of a heart attack on Dec. 28, 2012.
The will signed by the thrice-married George Costello, 63, who co-owned Costello Marine Contracting, which builds docks and bulkheads, left everything to Iona and Emily.
The will is being contested by four children from his previous marriages, records show.
“She can’t sell anything. She can’t do anything because everything is in court,” the family member said of Iona. “She’s been under a lot of pressure.”
Still, the relative said family members have no clue what might be behind the Costellos’ disappearance.
“I don’t know if she’s having a nervous breakdown. I don’t know if somebody has kidnapped them,” the relative said.
“We have no idea. The family is berserk.”
The Costello family has asked anyone with information to call the Southold Town Police Department at 631-765-2600.
UPDATE I: Found Safe in NYC.
