Mother of homicidal shopping cart hurler thinks her son, “a good kid,” should go free
Last Sunday Marion Hedges of Manhattan was walking with one of her two children in an East Harlem shopping mall carrying Halloween candy she had just purchased for underprivileged children, when a shopping cart that had been thrown from a fourth story walkway by two 12 year old boys hurtled down through space and struck her in the head, gravely injuring her. The perpetrators’ names, Jeovanni Rosario and Raymond Hernandez, were Spanish, and it was unclear whether they were black Hispanics or just Hispanics. So I titled the entry “Another white victim of minority mayhem.” However, commenter Jim C. said that Jeovanni is a black name.
The front page of today’s New York Daily News has a story about a hearing in the case in which Jeovanni’s mother Rosemary Rosario pled for her son’s release—release for her feral spawn who poses a mortal threat to society. There is a big photo of her and she has plenty of sub Saharan ancestry.
Outside the courtroom, Jeovanni’s mom wailed in despair.The photo of Rosemary Rosario is not in the online version of the article. There is however a photo of the mall and multistory walkway where the homicidal act—called a “tragedy” by Jeovanni’s attorney and by the Daily News reporters—was committed:
The fourth story walkway from which the subhumans threw the shopping cart must be
40 feet above the main level of the mall where Marion Hedges was walking with her child.
Jeovanni has been “verbally disrespectful” and “completely rude” to his teachers, the [probation] officer said.Here is the article:
Mom, lawyers plead for the release of two 12-year-old boys in near-fatal cart-toss in East Harlem Target; but judge denies release
Probably the mall operators were negligent in having such low railings. If you look at highway overpasses near black areas, they are always built with very high fence-like enclosures that curve backwards to discourage this sort of behavior. For example the bridge to the sewage treatment plant on the West Side of Manhattan.LA replies:
The Daily News suggests but doesn’t state definitely that the railings were within legal limits for a privately owned property: “The Daily News reported Friday that the pedestrian walkway was privately owned, meaning the railing only had to be 42 inches high. City-owned walkways must have 8-foot fences over the walls. That would have made the near-deadly stunt almost impossible.”November 6

Here in Oklahoma this name Jeovanni is common among non black Hispanics. To my knowledge, they are mostly, if not entirely, of Mexican descent.Jeanette V. writes:

When a Shahabuddeen allies himself with the white victim of non-white on white crime, we can talk about allies. Not before.
