George Junius Stinney Jr., the 14-year-old Black boy who died as the youngest person ever executed in the United States in the 20th century, would have been 83-years-old this Sunday.
Instead, his birthday will serve as a haunting reminder of why the death penalty needs to be abolished.
When two White girls, 11-year-old Betty June Binnicker and 8-year-old Mary Emma Thames, went missing in Alcolu, S.C., on March 22, 1944, after riding in to town on their bicycles, Stinney was arrested the following day for allegedly murdering them.
The girls had allegedly passed Stinney’s home, where they asked him where they could find a particular kind of flower. Once the girls did not return home, hundreds of volunteers looked for them until their bodies were found the next morning in a ditch.
Because Stinney joined the search team and shared with another volunteer that he had spoken to the girls before they disappeared, he was arrested for their murders.
The judge in the Usher/Tameka Raymond child custody case has refused to postpone the trial because Tameka’s son died — ruling the trial will resume as scheduled later this month.
As TMZ first reported, Usher wanted to have a court date moved back because he was worried that with the recent passing of Tameka’s son … the court hearing would cause “unnecessary stress and strain” for himself, Tameka, and their two minor children.
But Tameka argued Usher was just posturing for the press and his concern was “bogus.” She claimed in court papers Usher “visited Kile in the hospital only once” during his 15 days on life support.
A judge in Fulton County, GA has now ruled, saying the case will go on as planned and Usher will once again take the stand.
The trial will resume on Aug. 13 and is only expected to last a few more days.

Jose Marcos Picazo called his father on Friday and told him he was going shopping at Walmart and made plans to meet with him for lunch the next day.
A few hours later, he was dead.
According to officials, 41-year-old Picazo, of Azusa, California, died while trying to fight off security workers at the Covina Walmart after being accused of shoplifting from the store.
The man’s mother, Rosa Picazo, said she does not understand what happened since her son had money and did not need to steal anything.
‘It doesn’t make any sense,’ she said.
According to sheriff’s investigators, Picazo tried to leave the Covina store without paying for clothes, body wash and other items in his shopping cart.
As two loss prevention workers detained Picazo for petty theft, he began to fight with them, said Lieutenant Holly Francisco, of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Now this case/story is really bothering me why? Well because she is 15 years old, now I have a photo to photo of the 15 year old missing girl poster & her myspace photo. You will see the side by side photo of her below, on the left is the missing poster photo and on the right is her myspace photo. She says she’s a pornstar and not 15 years old, could be true could be a look a like. Now the way she talks on her myspace and twitter page makes me think otherwise. Now I am not sure why there has not been any investigation on this case. There also has been speculations that she tried to commit suicide, so not sure of that either. I wish someone could clear this whole thing up but not heard a word so far. The videos of her doing porn has not been removed from the internet why if this is a 15 year old girl the media and the police need to be all over this. Well let’s hope we all can find the truth about this.
Is this her do you see the that this could very well be the 15 year old girl …. tell me what you think. This is also a interview she done and saying she’s not the 15 year old runaway but that was her photo. Now why would someone want to make a missing person report case about a person just don’t add up. Also the two teens were found safe this is a developing story….
This is her twitter and Myspace Page you be the judge.
