1) Monday January 5. 1800 block of Pauger St. The victim stated that he was talking with a group of females when a black male known as "Phillip" approached the group and began to disrespect the group of ladies. When the victim intervened, the perpetrator entered an unknown residence and returned to the group, armed with a hammer. The perpetrator stuck the victim on the forehead, causing a laceration just above his right eye.

2) On Thursday, January 8, 2009, at about 10:52am, the victim was at the intersection of Flood and Urquhart St., when the wanted subject shot him in the back.

3)A man was shot Friday night in the 2400 block of North Prieur Street. Shortly after 9 p.m, he was shot twice -- once in the leg and once in the stomach area.

Follow-up to Technical Difficulties:

3) A Harvey teenager who admitted to detectives that she put a baby in a clothes dryer so she could watch television without disturbance was indicted Thursday on a charge of second-degree murder.

A case moving forward usually garners quiet applause from us editors. Sometimes, though, the shoe fits too big. Everyone's had enough Law and Order forced down their eyes to appreciate how infuriating an insanity defense can be. Everyone would also do well to remember that a certain number of people really are mentally ill. This story is no less gruesome than it was back in September, but we here at the NOMB are as horrified by the why as the what.

School-to-Prison pipeline/Prison-to-NOMB pipeline:
Word flows through the different channels to tell NOMB that the body found in the 3300 blk of Clouet St. recently was dumped there.
