Rap Mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight Arrested on Suspicion of Murder, Hit & Run … Held on $2 Million Bail (Update: Deceased Victim is Terry Carter)
Rap mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight was arrested last night on suspicion of murder after he allegedly ran over two men with his truck following an argument on a film set in Compton, California. Knight turned himself in to the police with his attorney present. According to the e Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, a confrontation began about 3 p.m. Thursday when ‘Suge’ Knight and two unidentified men began arguing on the set of “Straight Outta Compton.” As per accounts, Knight is believed to have followed the men in his truck and run them over in the parking lot, One witness appears to infer that it was an intentional act as he claimed that Knight’s red truck hit the men, then backed over them before leaving the scene. One of the victims died at the scene while the other suffered undisclosed injuries and was taken to the hospital. The incident is being investigated as a homicide.
Knight’s attorney confirmed that his client was behind the wheel, but is saying it was an accident as Knight was attacked by two people and trying to escape.
Notorious former rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight has been arrested on suspicion of murder after he allegedly ran over two men with his truck following an argument on a film set in Compton, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed. He is being held in lieu of $2-million bail.
Knight, 49, arrived at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department West Hollywood station with his attorney around 12:30 a.m. to be interviewed by homicide detectives as a person of interest in the case, according to authorities and his lawyer.
The interview concluded around 3:30 a.m., Knight’s attorney, James E. Blatt, told The Times.
The confrontation began about 3 p.m. Thursday when Knight and two unidentified men began arguing on the set of “Straight Outta Compton,” a biopic about the group N.W.A., said Capt. John Corina of the Sheriff’s Department’s detectives unit.
About 20 minutes after the alleged argument, the victims were at Tam’s Burgers near Central and East Rosecrans avenues, authorities said. Knight is believed to have followed the men in his truck and run them over in the parking lot, Corina said.
Witnesses said the truck hit the men, then backed over them before leaving the scene.
One of the victims, 55, died, and the other, 51, suffered undisclosed injuries, Corina said. At least one of the victims was a member of the film crew, he said.
Multiple witnesses tell us a movie shoot — involving Ice Cube and Dr. Dre — was going down when Suge pulled up in his car. We’re told security told Suge to leave and that’s when trouble began.
A fight broke out between Suge and 2 men. Suge got back into his car, took the wheel and threw the vehicle in reverse … and ran over a man who suffered fatal injuries.
It’s unclear at this point if the victim was connected to the movie. A source close to Cube tells us production had wrapped when the fight went down … and he and Dre were not on set.
Sources connected with Suge tell TMZ … the 2 men who fought Suge were the instigators. Our sources say Suge was scared because he’s in frail health — in addition to being shot 6 times last summer, he recently almost died from a blood clot.
The victim is Terry Carter, who we’re told is a friend of Suge’s who arrived with him at the scene — he works at a local tow truck company in Compton — and witnesses say he’s “an OG in the neighborhood.”
Our sources say Carter was in the process of walking to the passenger door of Suge’s vehicle, but happened to be in the rear when Suge gunned it.
Two other men were also hit … including Cle “Bone” Sloan — who’s appeared in “Training Day” and “End of Watch” — and suffered non-life threatening injuries. Both men are in the hospital.
‘Suge’ Knight is no stranger to trouble. The co-founder of Death Row Records has had perennial legal troubles.
- 1996: Knight was sent to prison for nearly five years for badly beating a rival with rapper Tupac Shakur at a Las Vegas, Nevada, hotel. The beating came shortly before Shakur suffered fatal gunshot wounds.
- 2002: Knight was jailed for violating his probation by associating with gang members in Los Angeles.
- 2003: He went back to jail on a parole violation after punching a parking lot attendant outside a Hollywood nightclub.
- 2005: Knight was shot in the leg during an MTV Video Music Awards pre-party in Miami. No arrests were made.
- 2006: Death Row Records filed for bankruptcy, and a Los Angeles judge ordered a trustee to take it over because of gross mismanagement.
- 2009: Knight was hospitalized for treatment of facial injuries following a fight at a hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona.
- 2013: The rap music figure was arrested on an outstanding warrant and later released after being pulled over for a traffic violation in Los Angeles.
- 2014: Ahead of the MTV Video Music Awards, Knight was shot during an altercation at a Hollywood nightclub at a party not affiliated with the cable network.
- 2014: Knight was charged with robbery involving a camera theft in Beverly Hills. He pleaded not guilty and could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted because of his criminal history.
ISIS Claims They Have Killed One of Two Japanese Hostages … VIDEO Shows Hostage Kenji Goto Holding Pic of Beheaded Body of the Second Hostage, Haruna Yukawa
SICK, THESE SAVAGES HAVE DONE IT AGAIN …
The Islamic State, ISIS, has reportedly released a new video Saturday claiming one of the two Japanese captives had been beheaded. In the video, Japanese freelance journalist Kenji Goto holds up a photo that shows the dead body of the second hostage, Haruna Yukawa. The video has yet to be verified and there is some question as to the videos authenticity as it is different from past ISIS ones released. However, with ISIS’s record of beheading innocents, why would these savages put forth a fake? ISIS is now issuing a new demand for the second Japanese hostage, to al Qaeda female prisoner in Jordan, , Sajida Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi.”
A purported ISIS video posted online today claims the terror group has beheaded one of two Japanese hostages and will execute the second unless an al Qaeda female prisoner is freed in Jordan.
Neither U.S. nor Japanese officials were able to immediately authenticate the video, which did not contain many of the high production techniques seen in earlier ISIS videos nor the typical branding for the terror group.
The video shows a still picture of Japanese television reporter Kenji Goto holding a photo of the beheaded body of Haruna Kuwana.
Clearly reading a message written for him, the voice says ISIS no longer is demanding a $200 million ransom but will free him if the female prisoner is released.
“They no longer want money, so you don’t need to worry about funding terrorists,” the voice says. “They are just demanding the release of their imprisoned sister, Sajida al-Rishawi. It is simple, You give them Sajida and I will be released.”
In an audio tape sent to the family of one of the hostages, Kenji Goto, he appeals for help and say that the other, his friend Haruna Yukawa, has been killed.
As he speaks, Mr Goto is shown in a still photograph, in which he holds up another photograph showing what seems to be Mr Yukawa’s decapitated body with his head lying on his back – a now standard method used by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant to display its victims.
“You have seen the photo of my cellmate Haruna slaughtered in the land of the Islamic Caliphate,” he says, addressing the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe.
“You were warned. You were given a deadline and so my captors acted upon their words.
“We have seen the video purporting to show that Japanese citizen Haruna Yukawa has been murdered by the terrorist group ISIL,” Patrick Ventrell, a U.S. National Security Council representative, said in the statement. “The intelligence community is working to confirm its authenticity. The United States strongly condemns ISIL’s actions, and we call for the immediate release of all the remaining hostages. The United States is fully supportive of Japan in this matter. We stand in solidarity with Japan and are coordinating closely.”
Detroit Black Man Who Murdered (Execution Style) Two White Teens Declares ‘Black Lives Matter’ During Sentencing Speech
HMM, DON’T WHITE LIVES MATTER TOO, DON’T THEY?
Convicted murderer Fredrick Young, who robbed, tortured, stripped, his victims, took them to a barren field in Detroit, forced them to kneel in just their underwear and shot them execution style in the back of their heads in late-July 2012 was sentenced to life in prison, decided to make a bizarre speech on Wednesday during sentencing. Instead of saying he was sorry to the families and friends of Westland teens Jacob Kudla and Jourdan Bobbis, who he and Felando D. Hunter murdered, the convicted killer instead apologized to the families of Michael Brown, the teen that was killed by officer Darren Wilson. Who was later not indicted by a grand jury and was recently reported that no civil rights charges will be brought either.
“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyana Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner and I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who were murdered in cold blood. And in respect for the peaceful protest I want to say hands up, don’t shoot, black lives matter. That’s it your honor.”
Are you happy Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and the rest. This is what you have created with your false charges of police racism. The movement ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ is based upon a lie.
A black man who was found guilty of murdering two white teenagers execution-style in a vacant Detroit field defiantly declared “black lives matter” Wednesday before being sentenced to life in prison.
Fredrick Young and Felando Hunter were sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without parole for robbing, torturing and murdering Jourdan Bobbish and Jacob Kudla, who had met up with them in July 2012 to buy drugs, a local Fox affiliate reported.
Young shocked the courtroom when he was given the chance to address the victims’ families, but instead apologized to the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyanna Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner,” he said. “And I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who was murdered in cold blood.
“And in respect for the peaceful protest, I want to say ‘hands up don’t shoot,’” he said, raising his hands in the air. “Black lives matter — that’s it your honor.”
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd Gives a Reporter a Lesson in Political Correctness … “Make No Mistake About It, There’s Nothing About Politically Correct in a Gun Fight.”
HERO OF THE WEEK … Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.
A manhunt was underway for four suspects who killed two people in the home, a mother and daughter, who, Judd said, were “viciously murdered” in a manner “much too graphic to describe.” People were asked to stay in their homes, as hundreds of officers, including SWAT teams, scoured a Central Florida neighborhood for armed and dangerous men after a suspected robbery, high-speed chase and double homicide overnight. Finally, the police got their men as all four suspects were arrested and are now in custody. However, it was what Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said afterwards in a police press conference that people need to heed. A lily-livered, spineless member of the MSM asked the sheriff the following question, “Some of the comments you made last night about shooting the suspects, possibly, and the comments today about ‘ready for a gunfight’ — was that in the heat of the moment? Do you have any regret about that?” Are you kidding? Thankfully, the media is not responsible to protect and serve the public.
Needless to say Sheriff Grady Judd responded in a manner that should make all people of his country feel safe and secure, just like how you don’t bring a knife to a gun fight, you don’t bring political correctness either.
“I not only have no regret, I’m pretty excited about telling you that — that’s exactly what would’ve happened,” Judd shot back. “Make no mistake about it, there’s nothing about politically correct in a gun fight. There’s nothing about politically correct when you are keeping people alive and well and safe. And the people of this community and these law enforcement officers come first.”
“I meant every word of it then, and I mean every word of it now,” he added. “If you surrender peacefully, that’s the way we prefer it. You start pointing guns at us, you can not only plan on, but you can guarantee that we are going to shoot you.”

In a brief address to the nation, French President Francois Hollande described the attack in Paris’ Porte de Vincennes — one of the main Jewish communities in the city — as a “horrific anti-Semitic act.”
“We have to be vigilant,” he said. “I am issuing a call to unity. This is our best weapon.”

A dramatic video captured the chaotic last stand of the cop-killing terror suspect gunned down Friday as police stormed a Paris kosher deli.
The body of an unidentified slain man is obvious just inside the entrance to the Hyper Cacher store where an Al Qaeda-linked terrorist killed four people during a lengthy hostage situation.
The sound of a single gunshot from inside the store was heard before a steel gate slowly opened and a single officer bolted inside.

25 Year Old John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr. Arrested After Throwing His Daughter Phoebe Jonchuck from the Dick Misener Bridge 60 feet to Her Death in Tampa, FL
GOOD GOD, WHY DO WE ALLOW CHILDREN TO BE AROUND DANGEROUS PARENTS!!!
25 year old John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr. was arrested after this deranged SOB pulled his 5 year old daughter, Phoebe Jonchuck, from her pink car seat and threw her from the Dick Misener Bridge to her death into the waters 60 feet below in Tampa Bay, Florida. UNREAL. John Nicholas Jonchuck has been charged with first degree murder. How did this father have any form of custody of this child when he had prior domestic violence arrests?
Please, save the Florida tax payer of a trial and just toss his ass off the same bridge.
John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr
A demented dad tossed his 5-year-old daughter to her death off a Florida bridge early Thursday, then drove off as frantic rescuers tried to recover the little girl’s body, police said.
Some 30 minutes after the fatal fall near the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in St. Petersburg, Fla., cops caught up to 25-year-old John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr. and arrested him on murder charges.
A St. Petersburg police officer was headed home south on Interstate 275 when a white PT Cruiser blew by him going 100 miles per hour just after midnight Thursday, police said. The officer followed and saw Jonchuck stop the car, pull little Phoebe Jonchuck from her pink car seat and throw the girl over the railing of the Dick Misener Bridge on the approach to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, which connects St. Pete with Terra Ceia in the Tampa area on Florida’s west coast.
John Nicholas Jonchuck faces first-degree murder charges in the death of his daughter who he threw off the Sunshine Skyway bridge into the bay just after midnight.
An officer heading home after his shift saw Jonchuck’s vehicle speed past at nearly 100 mph, Holloway said. The officer prepared to pull the PT Cruiser over, but by the time he caught up with it, Jonchuck had pulled over on the side of the road.
Holloway said Jonchuck got out and started toward the officer, who pulled his weapon. But Jonchuck went around to the passenger side of the car and got the child out.
The officer “thought he heard the child scream, but he wasn’t sure,” Holloway said. The officer then saw the man throw the child over, into the strong bay current.
Her body was recovered about a mile from the bridge and hour and a half later. Rescue crews tried to revive her, but she was pronounced dead at 2:44 a.m.
Islamist Terror Attack in Paris France … 12 Killed at French Satirical Magazine Charlie Hebdo (VIDEO of Attack)(Update: Shouted “Allahu Akbar!”)
Islamist Terror Attack in Paris France …
Eleven people are dead and 5 in critical condition after a terrorist attack at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. This is the same magazine that was fire-bombed in November 2011 a day after it carried a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad.The attack took place at 11.30 am local time as two black-hooded individuals entered the building with assault rifles and opened fire. The terror suspects who committed this heinous act are on the loose and a massive manhunt is underway.
This was not a lone wolf attack, this was an orchestrated terror attack on a media organization with a getaway plan. This was not a terrorist suicide attack looking to end up with 72 virgins. The training these men appear to have had is startling. Political correctness kills folks, get tough on terrorists or else.
Gunmen have attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people and injuring seven in an apparent Islamist attack.
At least two masked attackers opened fire with assault rifles in the office and exchanged shots with police in the street outside before escaping by car.
The gunmen shouted “we have avenged the Prophet Muhammad”, witnesses say.
President Francois Hollande said there was no doubt it had been a terrorist attack “of exceptional barbarity”.
A major police operation is under way in the Paris area to catch the killers.
Twelve people are confirmed dead, 10 from the Charlie Hebdo magazine and 2 police officers.
A huge manhunt is underway in Paris after at least 12 people were killed and seven others injured in a shooting at the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Police said two of those killed were police officers and that four of the wounded are in a critical condition.
Witness Benoit Bringer said the attack started at 11.30 am local time: “Two black-hooded men entered the building with Kalashnikovs (automatic assault rifles). A few minutes later we heard lots of shots.” He added the men were then seen fleeing the building.
Other reports spoke of three or four gunmen, who made off in a car which may have been hijacked, hitting a pedestrian as they drove.
President Francois Hollande called it “an act of barbarism”. He added: “This is a terrorist attack, there is no doubt about it.”
The government said it was raising France’s security level to the highest notch and the prime minister’s office confirmed extra security has been put in place at official buildings and media offices.
UPDATE II: VIDEO of attack:
Hooded gunmen stormed the Paris offices of a weekly satirical magazine known for lampooning radical Islam, killing at least 12 people, including two police officers in the worst militant attack on French soil in recent decades.
One of the men was captured on video shouting “Allah!” as four shots rang out. Two assailants were then seen calmly leaving the scene.
In another clip on Television station iTELE, they are heard shouting: “We have killed Charlie Hebdo. We have avenged the Prophet Mohammad.”
13.56 Charlie Hebdo cartoonist has told a French newspaper of the moment he encountered the two attackers as they entered the office.
The gunmen apparently said: “We’re al-Qaeda”:
Quote I had gone to get my daughter at nursery.
When I arrived in front of the door of the building of the paper, two men hooded and armed brutally threatened us.
They wanted to come in, go up. I pressed in the code.
They shot on Wolinski, Cabu… it lasted 5 minutes… I had hidden under my desk… they spoke French perfectly… they said they we’re al-Qaeda.
UPDATE IV: VIDEO (Warning) Check out these sick SOB’s as they shoot and kill a wounded police officer on the side walk.
More VIDEOS can be seen at TWS.
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU CALL AN AMBUSH MURDER OF POLICE BUT A HATE CRIME … “They Take 1 Of Ours .?.?. Let’s Take 2 of Theirs”
The National Fraternal Order of Police is asking for the Congressional hate crimes statute to be expanded to include crimes against police officers. If we do have a federal hate crime statute, then it might as well be written to include the murder of police officers. According to FBI statistics, about 21.7% of non-accidental law enforcement deaths since 2004 were ambush attacks. My personal belief is that murder is murder and it is hard to say that some one should be punished more for a hate crime than committing a murder in the commission of any crime. What is to say what is in one’s mind when they commit murder, usually all no good. However, I do believe that the murder of a police officer should be prosecuted and punished in a much different and extreme measures so to deter any thought of sicko punks and thugs that would ever consider murdering a police officer. You take the life of a police officer, yours will be taken as well.
In the wake of the murder of two New York City police officers and a national debate about policing, the National Fraternal Order of Police is asking for the Congressional hate crimes statute to be expanded to include crimes against police officers. The union has more than 300,000 members.
Violence against police officers that is motivated by anti-police bias should be prosecuted as a hate crime, the nation’s largest police union is arguing in a letter to President Barack Obama and Congressional leaders this week.
“Right now, it’s a hate crime if you attack someone solely because of the color of their skin, but it ought to be a hate crime if you attack someone solely because of the color of their uniform as well,” said Jim Pasco, the executive director of the National Fraternal Order of Police.
“Enough is enough! It’s time for Congress to do something to protect the men and women who protect us,” Chuck Canterbury, the president of the union, said in a statement Monday. The group has long lobbied for harsher punishment for those who harm law enforcement officers.
Today, the trial begins for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in the case of the Boston Marathon bombing . Jury selection begins as 3000 people have been put on notice as to potential jurors to make up 12 jurors and 6 alternates.
The man charged with the terror attack near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon goes on trial Monday in a federal courthouse less than two miles from where two bombs, concealed in backpacks, exploded with devastating force.
Despite repeated requests from defense lawyers for a delay or a change of venue away from Boston, a federal appeals court Saturday cleared the way for jury selection to begin.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, is charged with 30 criminal counts in the April 2013 bombings, which killed three people and injured 260 others, and for in the murder of an MIT campus police officer, Sean Collier, a few days after the bomb attack.
Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty. His older brother, Tamerlan, also accused in the crimes, died in a shootout with police.
As accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev goes on trial Monday few doubt the outcome of the first phase of the two-phase trial. It’s the second, the sentencing phase, including a possible death sentence, that has been the subject of behind the scenes discussions.
Federal prosecutors and defense attorneys for Tsarnaev have held talks on a possible plea agreement but failed to reach one, U.S. officials familiar with the talks say.
The discussions in recent months have centered on the possibility of Tsarnaev pleading guilty and receiving a life sentence without parole, according to the officials.
