Should captain Lee Joon-Seok and crew of the Korean Ferry be charged with Murder?

It has always been said that, "The Captain must go down with the ship." So it is beyond my understanding on why out of the life boats deployed it was the captain Lee Joon-Seok who was it's only passenger. The Korean Ferry accident off Korea's southern coast is very tragic to me the loss of 64 lives and over 200+ still missing. The NY daily news reports that the third mate was steering the ship at the time of the accident, which happened to be his 1st time. Why was this? According to reports Seok, and crew did not evacuate the passengers for almost 30 minutes in my opinion was very valuable time wasted and lives put in a very jeopardizing position to be loss. Monday hot button question of the day is: Do you believe they should be charged with murder?

Teenager killed by car after being chased by Pit Bull.

This story really breaks my heart, yet angers me. Why is it that there hasn't been a NATIONAL OUT CRY against these vicious dogs attacking humans and their careless owners. This is the 2nd case in which a teenager was hit with a car running from a Pit Bull. It seems that we as Americans have forgotten that these dogs were bred as bloodsports dogs in the UK back in the 1800's. They were later eliminated in 1835 due to new animal welfare laws. But what seems to be holding strong in tradition of these dogs is the bloodsports and gambling that surrounds them. Is the money really worth a human life to have these dogs? What if this was your child? As a mother myself my heart goes out to his mother for her loss. Please click the link below to see the heart breaking story.

Atlanta mother grieves the lost of son...

Kithe Brewster Estranged husband of Slain Model Ryan Singleton Blocks the Mother in Murder Investigation

I had a chance to speak with Mrs. Flowers by phone today and I have to say my heart went out to her. You could hear the pain in her voice. Iris Flowers finds it hard to cope on a daily basis with so many questions unanswered by the San Bernadino  (California) Police Department about her son Ryan Singleton's death. It has been 7 months since Ryan's mutilated (intact) body was found by two joggers on September 21, 2013. Since then Iris Flowers has made several attempts to find answers in her son’s mysterious death. San Bernadino Police Department have been giving Mrs. Flowers the run around and have yet to provide any information not even a death certificate. Not assisting Mrs. Flowers in her quest for the truth about what happened to Ryan is his estranged husband, who has virtually been missing in action. Ms. Flowers states, "His husband threatened me and told me if I refuse to do as he says he will cut off all information about my son's case.  Why would he make such threats to a grieving mother?”

Maybe this is why…. 23-year-old Ryan Singleton met his 47-year-old soon-to-be husband a short time before he married him in a wedding for which the guest list consisted of Atlanta Real Housewives star Cynthia Bailey and a host of his husband's friends and family. Ryan had NO ONE from his family or friends in attendance. Iris and his only brother weren’t even invited to attend the wedding. Shortly thereafter began a barrage of panic phone calls in the middle of the night from Ryan to his mother and several of his friends. Ryan cried out, saying, “I just threw an $8,000 bag out the window and I don't give a fuck. I can't take this any longer; he's controlling me and we’re living in an apartment with no food, lights and showering at the YMCA. I can't believe I let him trick me into giving up everything." Hearing this, Ryan's mother suggested to her son to come home.  Then, all of sudden, as with most calls from Ryan, he'd hang up immediately whenever his husband would enter.

A week later Ryan called his mother in the middle of the night saying, "I left him and I left my phone and clothes. I have nothing…I just need to get away.”  So Iris contacted a family member who lived in NY who paid for a taxi so Ryan could come there. When Ryan arrived at his family member's house, he had lost a lot of weight and was filthy and looked tired. Horrified by this report, Iris was in a race against time to get Ryan back to Atlanta before his husband could find where Ryan was. She managed to send money for a bus ticket so Ryan could leave for Atlanta that evening.  After Ryan slept for what seemed like a very much needed sleep, his family member fed him and let him bathe, and they talked.  As Ryan was on his way to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, he stopped by the apartment of a couple that his husband knew to retrieve his cell phone that he’d left there the night before. As the concierge of the building handed Ryan his cell phone, he also handed him the building’s phone, where his husband’s friends were on the other end of the line. Sadly, Ryan never got on that bus.

A month later Ryan and his husband came to Atlanta to meet Ryan’s mother and so Ryan could get a new Georgia ID. Iris found this extremely puzzling.  Wasn’t he living in NY???  Iris says, “The visit with my son and my new son-in-law was something I had to hold my tongue for; I had to support my son, because I love my child and I didn’t want him to run off again. I knew he needed me.”  But in a turn of events, Iris says, “After I dropped my son and son-in-law at the airport, I received a call not even 3 minutes later from Ryan, saying come back and get me, I’m not going with him. As matter of fact, don’t come back to the airport because I’m not even there anymore. Pick me up from the train station.” Iris immediately turned her car around to pick up her son at the train station. She says, “It seemed like Ryan was running for his life.” Four months passed in Atlanta, and Ryan was then working as a certified life guard, in the best of shape and starting to rebuild his life again, without his estranged husband. In fact, Ryan had begun dating a young woman and had rejoined the team that he started his life work with. Then on July 9th Iris received a call from Ryan at 9:30am EDT asking her to send him the emergency money that he kept in his room. Iris says she told Ryan it would take only a few minutes for her to send the money and that, after she sent it, she’d call him back with the MTCN.  After repeated calls and texts to Ryan’s cell phone, there was no answer or reply. Then at 10:00am, her son-in-law called her and asked if Ryan was there with her? He repeated the question with more intensity in his voice. He said, “Mom, is Ryan physically there with you? I heard people laughing in the background when I spoke to Ryan a minute ago.”  Iris answered, “No he’s not. He’s in California .” Iris says the next words she heard will now haunt her forever.  His husband said, “Oh no, Mom, he could be in danger out there.” Within 24 hours after that phone call, the Dekalb County (Georgia) Police Department showed up at Iris’s house reporting Ryan Singleton as an official missing person. Since that time, his estranged husband has not communicated in any way with Iris. She has never received any explanation for the comment he made, a comment which seems clearly to show that he is aware of what probably happened to Ryan.

Why is Ryan’s estranged husband shutting down now?  

Why would Kithe say, "Ryan was in danger" if all he heard was laughter?

Why are San Bernadino Police not calling Ryan's death a homicide after 7 months and questionable evidence found?

What is the real story behind Ryan's murder?
