Even then, traffic flowed past the fluttering yellow crime scene tape at a leisurely pace as police and CSI team members went about their routines. Two bicyclists peddled down the middle of the street, first one then the other, both oblivious as to what had just happened, after all murders don't usually occur in the middle of the afternoon, even on Beatties Ford Road.
But as word spread, Charlotte's fanatical crazies came out, the same guy with the same "Black Power" flag that shows up at all the metro police district shootings added to the chaos. A rookie reporter named, Xavier Walton with television station WCNC apparently unfamiliar with Charlotte's lunatic fringe, excitedly tweeted a video clip of a "man (who had) just arrived at the scene of a CMPD homicide investigation" adding "as you can see he's extremely frustrated."
His unchanging profane rant "Ya'll see this Goddamn flag, this the real flag - red black and mother fucking green." Of course Pan African Man is well known to most everyone else, but to Xavier Walton is was news.
The family of the victim, came and left, some stoic, others enraged and screaming, most where simply stunned. A woman told reporters the girl nicknamed "Nettie" was lining at her house with her grandson. Such arrangements seem so common yet to the reporter unusual. As the woman spoke with terms of gone, and shock and just this morning and she was so sweet. CMPD Officers also spoke in hushed tones trying their best to console friends and family.
The news media will of course prey on the family of Alysha Johnson encouraging them to "share her story". Someone will get an exclusive interview of her sobbing mother and grandmothers and aunts, perhaps even a somber father.
But the real story is, this didn't have to happen.
Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden had released 16 Year Old Andy Garcia the apparent shooter, just 2 months ago from jail. He was being held on Attempted Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon and other charges since February 17th.
Sheriff McFadden will tell you he is only doing what the courts, the judges and magistrates tell him to do.
But McFadden refuses to call his jail prisoners "inmates" insisting they are called "residents" pointing out he has no authority to keep residents locked up.
Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles will tell you she is not to blame, ditto with Mecklenburg County DA Merriweather, City Councilwoman Lawanna Mayfield or CMPD Police Chief Kerr Putney. They all claim it is someone else's fault.
But when have you ever heard any of them speak out supporting stiffer sentences for violent offenders? When has Vi Lyle done anything but support reduced or no bail? The Mayor's agenda is about climate change and social issues, Pride Week, The Arts, Step Competitions and Sister Cities Programs, Traveling to Cabo Mexico was last week's priority. Addressing crime is just something she doesn't do, even when another teenager is gunned down.
Chief Putney thinks we stop the violence if we can just hug it out and get along by settling our differences while singing kumbaya around a camp fire.
Sheriff McFadden thinks everything will work out if we don't report illegals to ICE and instead train the jail's "residents" to be barbers and District Attorney Merriweather blames case load and funding.
The reality, the truth, is of the murder of Alysha Johnson would not have happened if Andy Garcia had been convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison earlier this year.
Of Charlotte's 56 recorded homicides so far this year, there have been arrests in 39 of the cases. 32 of those arrested have prior arrests and or convictions, 25 of which were weapons charges, five were violent assault charges other than weapons. Yet 17 cases are still open and apparently unsolved. Charlotte's homicide detectives have logged nearly 1000 hours of overtime in the last 3 months.
Violent offenders are being released back on to the streets of Charlotte despite the fact that the numbers show they will continue on their path of ever increasing criminality and more and more extreme violence, a path that will eventually lead them to committing murder.
As long as Vi Lyles and Garry McFadden refuse to get serious about crime and start demanding long prison sentences for violent offenders, we are going to see Charlotte's murder rate surpass 100 year after year from now on.
As the sun began to set, the street lights one by one come to life, and the summer heat turns to a soft breeze. The victim's car towed away, the crime scene tape removed and people go on about their lives. Yes live goes on, after all it was just another mundane Monday.
Additionally, 17 Year Old Juan Zamora and a unnamed 15 year old male have also been charged with the murder of Alysha Johnson. Unconfirmed - Sources indicate that CMPD detectives believe Garcia pulled the trigger shooting the victim 8 times.
Surprised Cedar isn't pointing out how most of the these murders are just black on black violence. Oh wait this one doesn't fit your racist agenda does it Cedar Mouth?
Death penalty case a dozen years ago. This POS will get 5 years and his buddies probation.
I dont even care about this homicide. I just want to get some cutie cop pussy.
Just a matter of time when the public takes things into their own hands. Someone observes this and shoots the suspects. Eye of an Eye. It needs to dangerous for criminals to kill random incident people.
Does anyone even care about crime in Charlotte, anymore? Look at the stats. Look at the lies. Look at the jail and DA office.
There has to be more to this. That little hoodrat was up to no good dealing or buying she was no angel.
Ugghhh, how did this stupid bitch get promoted? Now I got to sit with her in camera room all day?
Whatcha wanna bet at least one of those little spic fuckers is an illegal or has parents who are here illegally and are currently special guests of Sheriff McFadden?
How is it that the little POS was not convicted on the priors? Not that I'd doubting you CP but WTF?
I'm the LAST person to defend that MF McFadden......but Ill have to back him up here. He really doesn't have any power to continue to detain inmates who are granted bond by the courts. That's pretty much out of his hands.
The ILLEGALS he's been releasing? 100% on him. The blood is on his hands. His recent comments on his thinly-veiled charge that saying 'urban sheriffs' is the same as saying the N-Word??? Fuck him and the horse he rode in on. Being black and in an urban environment doesn't give you a pass on folks calling you out as a piece of shit. Period.
SteveN I think CP and others are just baiting McFadden as if he needed encouragement to make a jackass of himself. I swear he looks more and more like Al Sharpton every day.
The sad truth of the mess Charlotte Mecklenburg finds itself in today...conservative won't show up to vote. Year after election year dismal turnouts at the polls. Im from Charlotte born and raised. Military service and CMPD. I encourage everyone to vote .vote..vote! Kick these bums out with the push of a button.
11:00 sad but the place is over run with Yankee Liberals who vote the way they always have clueless. Bill James was a jerk but at least he kept the taxes down. Dunlap is just god awful always was a crook.
Anonymous June 18 @3:40. 90% of the crime is black on black,so how is it racist? You don't even know what the word racist means! Shut your soup coolers and get a life,or save your own.....
She was just a baby that's crazy and the hands of some MS-13 gang banger wanna be. So that's not black on black or drug dealer vs drug dealer this is some kid trying to find her way. That's just fucked up.

You could get that from Sgt. Amy Stuckey. She has been around the block within CMPD and CFD. However, she is no longer as cute as she was. Since all the weight she has gained went straight to her ass.
7:57 - I’m sure you’re a specimen of human health.
Sounds like you’re jealous that you never got a chance.
You mad bro?
June 24, 2019 at 11:34 PM
You must also be jealous that you didn't get a chance either. Fucking loser.
2:43, I see when your vocabulary is limited, you resort to what your mother always called your father when he was spending the rent money on hookers.
June 26, 2019 at 12:28 PM
And that's the best that you can come up with is talking about someone's parents. Your responses are very limited to that pea size brain of yours. That's if you have a brain. It's just because I just don't sugar coat things for liberal pussies like you SNOWFLAKE.
2:05, my apologies for bringing your parents into the mix. They shouldn’t be held responsible for your actions or words since, I assume, you are an adult.
You’ll probably want to get that hair trigger anger issue checked out though.
Incidents (i.e. stuff that will cost one their job) are more likely to occur when one loses control and forgets how to communicate effectively.
That is all!

Truth hurts doesn't it Amy.
If you feel that you need help when it comes to writing sociology papers then we could help you. Here at http://term-paper-writing-service.com/ we have some of the best professional writers that are ready and waiting to make your academic writing very much easier. In fact, we can take all the stress and hard work out of writing, so that you are free to get on with whatever else you choose to do
You may decide to try and buy a sociology research paper online somewhere but you need to be aware of some things. Those sites will offer sociology papers for sale but they have been sold to hundreds of other people. You have no idea where those papers came from and who wrote them. You do not know the academic level of the writer and chances are you will have to spend time tweeking the paper to your professor’s specifications. For that kind of hassle you might as well just write the paper yourself.
Sheriff McFadden will tell you he is only doing what the courts, the judges and magistrates tell him to do. :quote from post!
I guess he forgot that in North Carolina at least the only person who has more authority then him in Mecklenburg is the Medical Examiner.
Its just more people getting line behind poor little Johnnie! its not his fault!
