White mother lied on innocent black boys; murdered her own son in Georgia.

Brunswick, Ga. resident Sherry West, 42, mother of baby Antonio Santiago slain on March 14, 2013, told CNN’s Piers Morgan she wants the alleged teen killers to die during an on-camera interview. “A life for a life,” she said.

De’Marquis Elkins, 17, and Dominique Lang, 15, were arrested and charged with murdering the 13-month-old. Their trial was set for this August but their public defender, Jonathan Lockwood, uncovered some shocking evidence.

She lied! The gunshot residue was found on both West and baby Antonio’s father, Louis, who was initially reported no where near the crime scene.

Back in March, West told police that while on her way home from the post office two black boys attempted to rob her. When she told them that she didn’t have any money, they shot baby Antonio in the face, then shot her in the leg before running away.

The state forensic report says, “This supports the possibility that discharged a firearm, was in close proximity to a firearm upon discharge, or came into contact with an item whose surface bears GSR .”

Remember, accused Elkins’ mother Karimah Aisha Elkins, 36, and aunt Katrina Latrelle Elkins, 33, were arrested and charged with making false statements. A gun was found but authorities never indicated it was a murder weapon.

Also, West’s daughter Ashley Glassey, 21, said she didn’t want to wrongly accuse her mother but had her doubts because her stories were conflicting and she may have committed the murder for insurance money.

Police have not named Sherry West or Louis Santiago suspects in their son’s murder; however, Santiago is in jail for aggravated stalking of West.

“He went nuts … he was throwing things through the window and terrorizing me, saying that I killed my baby and it should have been me,” West tells CBS.

This was the case that all the Zimmerman groupies were bringing up in order to justify the shooting of Trayvon Martin and racially profile all black teenagers as thugs.

1. They always blame black males

Susan Smith did the same. With good reason. They know police are far more likely to believe their lies if they say the killer was African American.

2. I personally brought up this case

 

And now that more facts have come out I have just one question


Why have the teens not had charges dropped? This is very unfair to them and without their defense atty disclosing this no one would have known.

Now we all know the police can manipulate confessions (central park 5 as an example)

I want more coverage of this crowman1979 I hope u can dig up more information.

3. The OP is bullshit--one of the teens is testifying against the other.

They did it.

11. You know how hard it is to get a teenager

To make a false confession, especially when offered leniency? It's probably harder not to get a confession.

Plus, the fact that the mother had gunpowder residue on her is irrelevant. We probably agree on that. But gunpowder residue on the father? And both the father and daughter claiming their mother did it? I'm not ready to say, "lock the cell door and throw away the key" just yet.

13. These are teens afraid for their life.

Most of the time they are put in a situation where they do turn on each other even if neither of them did it. And their Black kids. I don't put the Georgia PD lenient on Black kids.

4. because they are still accused of murder

the reason the mother has gunshot residue on her is because she was shot.

5. Watching those hacks attempt to rationalize the irrational has been both bemusing and sad simultaneo

"This was the case that all the Zimmerman groupies were bringing up in order to justify the shooting of Trayvon Martin and racially profile all black teenagers as thugs...."

6. I have my doubts about the source.

"Rolling Out" is a black tabloid, basically a black version of the NY Post.

I'd like to see a more unbiased source.

7. This is a an opinion piece, and a false one at that.

The mother has gunpowder residue on her because she was shot twice at close range. Duh.

The suspects are going on trial next month, and one has apparently already agreed to testify against the other one (who just happneed to be seen with a handgun and was arrested with the same ammunition used to shoot West and her baby and who shot someone else with that same kind of gun two weeks earlier).

If one sets race completely aside, there's overwhelming evidence of the mother's story being 100% true and the suspects being guilty.

8. Too much evidence points to the boys

The gun was the same gun that was used in a robbery 2 weeks before the killing. The suspect was described as a young black male. We went through this case last week. The GRS on the mother is because she was close to the gun when it fired. I'm not sure about the father. But all the evidence points to the kids doing this horrific crime.

9. I cant find ANY news even in the local Brunswick paper

I've always thought it was a very odd situation; the reaction of the father, the death of another child earlier, etc. I only live a few hours from there, so it was big news.
However, I cant find ANYTHING new on this story and I've never heard of "rolling out" before. I've checked the local paper, Atlanta paper, google, etc.
If this is true, it should be out everywhere by Tuesday.

*edit-- WOW, so many posts popped up as I typed mine!! Glad I'm not the only skeptic.

10. OM fuckin' G. I remember this case. This was posted all over DU.

Damn, that woman lied?! Those poor kids. OMG. She and her husband killed their son and they blamed it on too Black teens. It is open season on Black people. I am tired of this. I mean when can people take a break from this. Those kids must have went through hell during that time and all because the word of the White woman trumped two teen Black kids. *

How come a woman who was tested as having gun residue is not taken into account but these poor kids had to find a lawyer and had nothing on them. Justice...fuck justice. I will never raise my son in this nation. I am sorry. America gave me a lot, but at the same time I realize that producing a Black son will take more away from me.

12. I find it hard to believe that you're actually believing this bullshit.

 

1. The mother of the slain baby has GSR because she was shot at close range, there will always be GSR on the victim of a close range gunshot.

2. The aunt of the shooter led police to a .22 cal. pistol, the same caliber that killed the 2 year old.

3. A priest has I.D.'d the shooter as the one who shot him with a .22 cal. pistol 2 weeks earlier.

4. The younger teen has confessed and implicated the older teen as the shooter.

5. The police have said that the GSR on Louis Santiago could very well have come from an industrial source not related to the killing.

6. When the older was arrested, he just happened to have 2 .22 cal. bullets in his pocket, the same cal. that wounded the mom and killed the baby, and, coincidently, wounded the priest 2 weeks earlier.
Coincidence? I think not.

Some people just have to see a CT in everything, sometimes a duck is just that, a duck, which is the case here.

14. Thanks for the info; I live in Ga and never knew what you've posted.

But after reading "Rolling Out", I was skeptical. I guess everyone has their own "InfoWars", huh?
