MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- One adult and ten teenagers have been arrested in connection to this weekend's Kroger parking lot attack.

Nineteen-year-old Raheem Richardson is charged with aggravated assault and aggravated riot.

Three boys and three girls, all either 14 or 15 years old, are each charged with aggravated riot, which is a felony.

This brings the total number of people charged in the attack to 11.

Four others were charged earlier Monday.

Two of those, a 15- and 16-year-old, are also charged with acting in concert: to wit aggravated assault.

According to Mayor A C Wharton, the 15-year-old was out on gun-related charges at the time of the attack.

Wharton said the teen was not enrolled in school and his mother was previously charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

    For the ignorant girl laughing in background that they have a white dude and ate fixing to jack maybe one day this will happen to you or someone that you love. This world is full of hate and ignorance and I get soo sick of people saying white and black. It’s just a skin color these people still have feelings.

    It’s obvious by their depraved actions that they have NO parental guidance at home. Therefore, they need to be removed from those homes ASAP. I think the juveniles and society would be better served if they are placed in a totally different environment. I suggest Military Boarding School. They certainly would not be running around like a pack of wild dogs attacking people. They would be taught self discipline and other basic socially acceptable behavior. Something they are obviously NOT getting in their homes now. When parents won’t parent, that is when society is forced to step in and take control. This case clearly warrants that society step in and take control of these out of control juveniles.


    151 years after Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and this is what Black Americans have to show for …Thanks, Abe!

    If we knew then what we know now, we would have picked our own cotton!
