Local authorities have released raw footage from surveillance cameras that allegedly captured images of two suspects being sought in the murder and robbery of boxing champion Vernon Forrest last weekend. According to the AJC, police believe up to four men were involved in the murder.
Forrest and his 11-year-old Godson are seen on surveillance video in his Jaguar as they pulled into a gas station on Whitehall Street in Southwest Atlanta on Saturday night. Forrest put air in his tires as his Godson, who is the only eyewitness, went inside the convenience store to buy a bag of chips and use the restroom. The gas station surveillance camera captures a red Pontiac Grand Prix or Grand Am pulling up to a pump. A black man is seen getting out of the passenger side and walking directly behind Forrest.
The man is armed and demands Forrest’s Rolex watch and a diamond ring. As the man walked away, Forrest retrieved a licensed .45 caliber weapon from under his driver’s seat and gave chase on foot South on McDaniel Street and across the I-20 overpass.
Police believe Forrest lost sight of the suspect at the corner of McDaniel and Fulton Streets. The suspect was then caught on surveillance video as he ran past the front door of 505 Fulton Street apartments and then again as he ran behind the building where he is seen opening an unlocked security gate and entering a hallway.
The robbery suspect was wearing jeans, a black t-shirt and carrying a shiny handgun. Another surveillance camera captured the same man cowering nervously in the hallway near a locked security gate while talking on a cell phone. Police believe Forrest caught up with a second man who probably acted as look out at the gas station. The two exchanged words but the man was able to convince Forrest that he wasn’t the one who robbed him. When Forrest turned to leave, the man pulled a gun and shot Forrest 7 to 8 times in the back and head. Forrest died at the scene.
After the shooting, the driver of the red Pontiac picked up both the robber and the shooter. The Pontiac then drove South on McDaniel Street.

Last night I spent the better part of an hour scouring blogs and news gathering websites for images of Barack Hussein Obama consuming beer at the so-called “beer summit” yesterday. Needless to say, I couldn’t find any. Oh, there were plenty of pics of Obama leaning back in his lawn chair (supposedly after a hard day’s work) nursing a mug of Bud Light sitting on the table in front of him. But no pics of him actually downing a cold one.
That’s odd… Was Sergeant James Crowley the only one captured on film hoisting a mug of suds to his lips during the “beer summit”? Was that the intended outcome — to get images of the cop drinking beer, but not the president, the vice president Joe Biden, or the race baiting Harvard professor Henry Louis “Skip” Gates, Jr. whose loose lips sparked a firestorm of race debates in this country?
Maybe Obama’s handlers didn’t want to see any more images like this one. Maybe they reminded O that it isn’t cool or presidential to be photographed in public sipping brew. Not when teenagers are still drinking and driving and killing themselves at alarming rates. Best to do all his swigging behind closed doors like George Bush did.
Barack Obama will go down in history as the least popular president to ever occupy the White House. Today Obama sat down for a beer with his pal, race baiter Henry Louis “Skip” Gates and the white officer who arrested Gates two weeks ago. Is this what you voted him in office for? To promote alcoholism?
Everyone I spoke with said they would have refused Obama’s invitation to sit down for a beer after referring to them as stupid. One friend told me that Obama’s photo ops are more important to him than promoting abstinence and responsibility.
Anthony, the party planner who referred to reality TV personality Sheree Whitfield as a “trashy bitch” during an episode of RHOA, wrote in to clear the air. Anthony wants you to know he is not gay. And, in addition to being a proud husband and father, he is a consummate professional like fellow party planner Jamahl King.
I am reaching out trying to get the facts straight. First, I am not GAY! Married with children, and love PUSSY.
Second, I was never hired by Sheree or Bravo to do a party. This event was for the Atlanta Music Festival, and the producer’s ask me to modify the event to be included in an episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, entitled Sheree’s Divorce Party.
I also consider myself to be a professional with a long standing resume. But, unless you have work with Sheree or had any dealings with her you wouldn’t understand, where I am coming from.

Two DeKalb County police officers have been suspended for using county equipment to run a personal background check on Barack Obama. DeKalb County is a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.
According to the AJC, the two officers, Ryan White and C.M. Route, were placed on administrative leave for using a computer mounted in a patrol car to run a query on Obama on July 20.
Such behavior, said William “Miz” Miller, DeKalb Public Safety director, is not to be tolerated.
“As Public Safety Director for DeKalb County, I want everyone to know that we take these allegations very seriously,” he said in a statement. READ MORE…
In more Obama news, 41% of Americans polled disapproved of how Obama handled the Gates/Crowley case. Obama’s Rasmussen approval ratings also fell to a new low of 48%.
Remember John Holdren, the Harvard professor appointed by Barack Obama to be his “science adviser”? I told you earlier about his book Ecoscience that advocates population control and forced abortions. Well, it turns out Holdren has even more radical views on life than I originally thought.
In 1973, Holdren wrote another book called “Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions” in which he says newborn babies, if given the right “social experiences” after birth, “will ultimately develop into a human being.” I had to stop typing long enough to laugh out loud! THIS is the guy that Obama wants advising him on science when he doesn’t even know when human life begins?
Are all Harvard professors kooky like Holdren and Skip Gates? Unlike Skip Gates, Holdren is now in control of this country’s science policies!
The more I read about this nut job Holdren, the more he begins to sound like Hitler, who also didn’t think a segment of society was human and set about solving his “social problems” by building concentration camps.
