Five teens were arrested in connection with a shooting on Warwick Street earlier this month, according to Tallahassee Police. It happened July 12 at about 6 p.m. Three of the suspects are 18, and the others are 16 and 17 years old. All five are charged with armed robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

The Leon County School Board voted 5-0 to keep the book “I am Billie Jean King” on LCS shelves. “I think it sends a loud, clear message to all of our community that we want our children to read, we want them to have access to all kinds of books, and we’re not afraid of the word ‘gay,’” Board Chair Rosanne Wood said.

Twenty-seven year old Anthony McGinnis was found guilty of murder in the killing of Lamar Nelson in 2020 at his Mission Road apartment. McInnis was found guilty of first-degree murder and theft of a firearm after a three-day trial last week. The jury reached a verdict on Friday after about an hour and a half of deliberation.

TPD said he was arrested for armed kidnapping with intent to terrorize, aggravated assault with a firearm and battery. TPD said he was found to have a stolen gun, and they believe he and the kidnapped woman know each other.

  1. What? No word of how New Boston Richie tried to rip off FAMU with a fake video SHOT in the FAMU locker room with the TEAM…. Which got FAMU’s football team suspended for three days, till the coach felt they’d suffered enough. SHEEEEET. Meanwhile.. Boston Richie is still showing teh video on you tube:

  2. Watching a local TV news broadcast on Tuesday, they covered a meeting with the “Reverend” RB Holmes and other community leaders (do nothing activists), on the items to discuss was to get Nation Action Network’s Al Sharpton involved in passing gun legislation and generally complaining.

    Also asked for Ben Crump to get involved in helping to escalate the “community violence jackpot”, as well as suing Governor Desantis for signing the permit less carry allowances.

    Personally, I have not seen ANYONE open carrying and yes, I spend time on the southside and westside in the days and evenings. But God forbid “Reverend” that we actually try to address how the perpetrators of these gun crimes are ignorant and have no respect for civil behavior.

    But go ahead and throw money at it when it requires parenting and discipline. Ask Mayor Dailey and Matlow for more money in exchange for votes. The proposed tax increase better have some cash for something like the Chicago Cure Violence consulting contract or something else that will do exactly Jack. SUCKERS.

  3. Rosanne Wood may not be afraid of the word gay but I think she is very afraid of the political arm of the LGBT community. I think she wouldn’t dare to ever disappoint them.

  4. Will Laurie Lawson Cox switch parties like Alva Striplin did?

    If you’re going to try to remove books from school libraries, at least have the courage to go through with it.

  5. I hope ALL 5 Teens will be charged as ADULTS and why were they NOT charged with Attempted MURDER (or MURDER if the Victim died)?

    YES, we want our children to read BUT it needs to be Age Appropriate Books. These are Toddlers, little Children. They do NOT need to be reading books that has anything to do with Sex, Gays, Trans, etc. they are CHILDREN.

    Abortions in Florida have increased to over 38,000 ahead of a Florida Supreme Court ruling . This is just SAD. VERY SAD. This tells me that they did it just for Spite and not even trying to keep from getting Pregnant.

    Congratulations Kaley Mudge.

  6. “aggravated battery with a deadly weapon”

    A white-washed expression that sounds friendlier than “attempted murder”.

  7. “The Leon County School Board voted 5-0 to keep the book “I am Billie Jean King” on LCS shelves”


  8. Well, how’s Royle King’s efforts working out for you?

    “Five teens were arrested…” black youth.

    “Twenty-seven year old Anthony McGinnis was found guilty of murder” black youth.

    “has lead to the arrest of 20-year-old Stone Robinson-Fisher in Quincy.” Black youth.

    And do not expect the situation to change.
