Baby in stroller shot dead by 2 Black teens

Our society is breeding monsters.
Last Thursday, in the coastal city of Brunswick, Georgia, a 13-month-old baby was shot to death while in his stroller. The baby was not accidentally killed by a stray bullet. The murder was  intentional — the deliberate act of two black teens, ages 17 and 14.
Who would do that?

The AP reports that on March 21, 2013, Sherry West took her baby, Antonio, in his stroller for a morning stroll near her apartment in Brunswick’s Old Town historic district. Antonio’s father, Luis Santiago, lives in a house across the street.
She had just been to the post office a few blocks from her apartment when she was approached by a tall, skinny teenager and a smaller boy, asking her for money.
West told the AP, “He asked me for money and I said I didn’t have it. When you have a baby, you spend all your money on babies. They’re expensive. And he kept asking and I just said ‘I don’t have it.’ And he said, ‘Do you want me to kill your baby?’ And I said, ‘No, don’t kill my baby!'”
One of the teens fired four shots, grazing West’s ear and striking her in the leg, before he walked around to the stroller and shot the baby in the face.

De'Marquis ElkinsBarack Obama said if he had a son, he would look just like Trayvon. If Obama had another son, would he look just like De’Marquis Elkins?

Brunswick police combed school records and canvassed neighborhoods searching for the teens. The next day, police announced the arrest of 17-year-old De’Marquis Elkins, who is charged as an adult with first-degree murder, and a 14-year-old who is not identified because he is a juvenile.  Police Chief Tobe Green said the motive of the “horrendous act” was still under investigation and the weapon had not been found: “I feel glad that justice will be served. It’s not something I’m going to live with very well. I’m just glad they caught him.”
West said detectives showed her mugshots of about 24 young men. She pointed to one, saying he looked like the gunman: “After I picked him, they said they had him in custody. It looked just like him. So I think we got our man.” But West said she thought the other suspect looked much younger: “That little boy did not look 14.”
West had lost another child to violence. In March 2008, her 18-year-old son, Shaun Glassey, was killed with a steak knife during an attack involving several other teens on a dark street corner in Gloucester County, N.J.
Sabrina Elkins, the sister of De’Marquis, refuses to believe her brother could have killed baby Antonio: “He couldn’t have done that to a little baby. My brother has a good heart.”


What is fascinating about the AP report above is that it makes no mention of the fact that the two suspects are black. It was only when I did a search for “De’Marquis Elkins” that I found the video below, in which Brunswick’s black Police Chief Tobe Green identified the two suspects as “young black males” (0:45 mark):

Update (July 25, 2013):

This is a developing story. Since the arrest of De’Marquis Elkins, another suspect, Dominique Lang, 15, was also arrested, as well as three more members of the Elkins family — Karimah, Katrina, and Sabrina Elkins, who are accused of trying to cover up the crime, by either providing De’Marquis with an alibi, or by trying to hide the possible murder weapon.  All five defendants were in court on May 29, 2013, for a housekeeping hearing. The judge said he’d like to see this case go to trial by August.

Update (Aug. 24, 2013):

The trial has begun. On Aug. 22, co-defendant Dominique Lang, 15, testified in the trial of DeMarquise Elkins. Both teens are facing charges in the murder of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago. Lang told jurors how Elkins approached the baby’s mother, Sherry West, in an attempt to rob her. When West refused to hand over her purse, Lang testified Elkins fired at her baby. (Source)

UPDATE (Aug. 27, 2013):

At the trial yesterday, for the first time, the jury saw the .22-caliber revolver prosecutors say De’Marquis Elkins used to murder Antonio Santiago. And testimony from Elkins’ friends and relatives didn’t help his case. Family friend Danielle Williams testified that Elkins came to her apartment the day of the shooting, hoping to hide his weapon. She said, “He asked can he put his weapon under my couch.” Later that day, Elkins’ mom, Karimah, and his sister, Sabrina, came to pick it up. The jury also heard from a friend who said he drove Karimah and Sabrina to a fishing hole, the same place where prosectors say the murder weapon was found.  (Source)

UPDATE (Sept. 2, 2013):

On Friday, Aug. 30, the jury found De’Marquis Elkins guilty of felony murder of baby Antonio. See “Guilty! Black “teen” did shoot baby in face.”

I’m so terribly sad for this poor mother. Her nightmares will be filled with the images of her little son being shot.
If the mother and baby had been black, would this kid have shot the baby?

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for giving us the facts about this horrendous tragedy. Isn’t it incredible that it was not mentioned on national news! One would reason that the killing of a dear infant in a stroller would be important. I will pray for this mother, losing two children to demonic violence.

Where is the outrage in the media? Why have these two monsters not been charged with a “hate crime”? Is it because they are black and the victims white? I am fed up with obama and holders dept of injustice.

They didn’t say they were black, but they said he was named D’Marquis. Same thing. Even in Georgia, there’s no one white named D’Marquis.

The world is upside down inside out. My sincere sympathy to the mother of these children. This is the new normal under this government and left lame stream media. How far is going to go and how much are we going to take? And they want to take our guns away!

There are so many fine upstanding citizens that have no idea just how evil people can be and how young blacks are so desensitized to the notion of killing. The morally corrupt subculture enabling this killing is alive and well. The following table gives the sex and race of offenders arrested for murder in the US for 2011 in instances where the offender is known to police. Federal 2011 UCR report on Sex/Race of Murder Victims/Offenders: https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-6 Taking information from the above table, while blacks comprise only 13.1% of the US population, they committed 48% of all homicides in 2011… Read more »

Thanks for chasing this one down Dr. Eowyn,
When I first saw this story, I searched in vain for a description of the killers. I know it should’t matter. But this stuff is so consistent, it demands honest scrutiny.
Most people cannot imagine this kind of cruelty.

I can’t imagine what kind of hell would be raised if it were two white boys and the Mom and baby were black. You know that Jesse and Al and all the race baiters would be in Brunswick demanding that those two boys be hanged. It doesn’t matter what their races are, this was a tragedy for every one involved. The mom who will never get over the violent death of her child, the child who will never grow up and the two stupid kids who thought they were being tough and cool. If the 17 year-old isn’t charged with… Read more »

Society is producing narcissistic, low-empathy, moronic monsters. They prey on the vulnerable. I’ll bet that the shooter will be classed as a psychopath. This behaviour seems to be on the increase. Psychopathic brains are different from normal brains, they don’t respond the same way emotionally and they need a lot of stimulus to get any kind of feeling, hence the violence. I feel so sorry for the mother, she’s going to need a lot of support. Having been through this twice she’s going to have a terrible time not just with the grieving but with PTSD too. This is so… Read more »

Listen to the rap culture, watch movies like Jango Unchained, listen to a speech by Louis Farrakhan, or a sermon by Reverend Wright. It’s nothing but hate whitey, hate whitey, hate whitey.

This precious child was NO threat to anyone. This WAS/IS an EVIL DEED.
I don’t know what the penalty is in that state; but he does NOT deserve to see the light of day again or to live.

It all comes down to knowing right from wrong. As a child of God, I thought everybody was born with this instinct. How do you explain the lack of this gift in some?

black teenagers hate white america. It is in the history and it is in the music so killing a white person or a white baby is just instinct for some of them who blame the entire white race for their problems. Oh and somehow there is a black president???? Maybe white folks are not all racists after all ….right G?

After reading the article of the AP and 18 pages of comments on newsday.com about this case, I can just say that there’s not only something deeply wrong with the killers that did this, but also with society.
It’s like an iceberg. 10% are on the surface, but 90% are hidden.

For the dead child that lost its’ life before it even started it doesn’t make no difference anymore, that’s true. For the “suspects” on the other hand it is very relevant in order what they have to face when they are found guilty. Just look for Debra Milke (in case you haven’t heard of her), a woman on death row for 23 years now, when on March 14, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit threw out Milke’s conviction, holding that it had been secured in violation of the Fifth Amendment. Sometimes “the killer” is presented to… Read more »

Actually we are born evil. Nothing greedier than a child whose whole universe centres on himself. Goodness is taught, not an inate characteristic.

Anytime a child is murdered by soul-less animals, it enrages me. If this had been a Black child, Hispanic, etc, I would want the murderers to receive the death penalty. Anyone that does this is not fit for society and should give up their lives to prevent them from getting out and murdering children again. Like the punks in the Jonesboro, AR shootings back in 1998, they should have been executed once they reached the legal age and not let out of the detention home.

Where are the protests?? its as if it is OK as long as the killing is not done by whites against a black person… but I agree with the above poster… Had this been two white teens and the baby and mother were black… there would be threats and protests everywhere by the race baiters but thats not what… Read more »

If a WHITE teenager shot a BLACK baby in the face I would be equally OUTRAGED! If ANY teenager shot ANY baby in the face I would be OUTRAGED–I would consider that kid a MONSTER. I’m WHITE, and I belong to the same race as everyone else on this planet: the HUMAN race–one race with many beautiful colors. Yet it appears that some people don’t want us to see one another that way, preferring to divide and conquer for whatever selfish reason. So they drum up hate, hate, and more hate, and terrible things happen. Only with God’s love can… Read more »

If the white people do not awaken, they all will be killed. In here in Brazil, we can not to buy a gun fire to self defense, and 50.000 brazilians are killed for year. The motives is not racism, but actualy is the same thing, becouse our president suport the criminals and incite him against population. But you can stop this things. You don’t have to claim for more state, more police, more interventions. You’ll have to do this together and alone.

The trial may never get underway, now that the defense is forcing police to release gunshot residue evidence and the father is in jail on a different charge, the truth seems poised to be freed. It’s looking more & more like another Susan Smith case.

The Gospel contains the only known remedy for young people like these guys. If they turn their lives over to Jesus Christ, they can be transformed into good people.

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”
–Ezekiel 36:26

Conservatives are hilarious.

There’s no proof the “black boys” did it. While there IS proof that the white mother pinned the crime on the boys. She was a crackhead and her OWN “white” daughter (Since you all want to make this about race) said her mother’s story was very suspicious, and that ske killed her own baby for the insurance money to buy MORE drugs.
https://m.nydailynews.com/1.1430117
^ there’s the news story about how she more than likely murdered her own baby.
Oh. & this has been all over the national news but conservatives probably don’t watch much CNN. But CNN has been closely covering this story.
