FSU withdraws scholarship for recruit investigated in Kendrick Johnson's death

Kendrick Johnson and Brian Bell

 

Apparently where there is smoke, there must be fire, at least that seems to be the thinking at Florida State University.

Heavily recruited Brian Bell had his scholarship withdrawn by the university. No official explanation has been released by the university. However, it is suspected by many to be the result of an intense social media campaign and his alleged involvement in the death of fellow Lowndes County High School student Kendrick Johnson. Johnson’s body was found in a rolled up wrestling mat inside the school gym. The condition of Johnson’s body and the circumstances surrounding his death have been the subject of a U.S. Department of Justice grand jury investigation.

The teen’s death caused national attention to be focused on Valdosta, Georgia, and has caused deep racial animosity to rise to the surface. The Johnson family recently filed a $100 million wrongful death lawsuit that names more than 30 defendants and the city of Valdosta. It is alleged in the lawsuit that Johnson was lured to the gym by an unidentified White female. It was there that Brian Bell and his brother are alleged to have assaulted Johnson. The lawsuit further alleges that the father of the boys, FBI agent Rick Bell, encouraged the boys to assault Johnson. Because of possible conflict of interest issues with the case, seven judges have recused themselves from hearing the lawsuit.

            Really sorry you don’t believe God if something like this happened to your family member what would you do who would you call on ? You need help!!!!!!



          • yellowdogdemocrat on February 10, 2015 at 5:24 pm

            The doctors just told us our son cannot be helped with his cancer. To hear you talk, all we have to do is pray and your god will heal him. His cancer is called goblet cell carcinoma, and is 100% fatal. No one has ever come out of it alive. Pray to your god and tell him if he will heal our son we will believe he is real.



          • CoolBreeze on February 11, 2015 at 5:16 pm

            I am sorry for your pain and hope you can find solace from it in time. In the meantime cherish what you can, especially in your son.

            Anger such as you exhibit, can only mean you do believe in GOD. And, cannot understand why a loving GOD would cause or allow such pain.

            I can posit a lot of answers, none which really matter, because no one can really know.

            Love & hate are the opposites of the same coin and there can be no hate without love. Hate only exists because that which we say we hate is so very close to what we love, causing massive dissonance. If it wasn’t so very close we would be indifferent to it, or merely dislike it from annoyance.



          • yellowdogdemocrat on February 12, 2015 at 2:40 am

            First of all I did not address you. I addressed Wanda Jewett(who has not responded, likely because she has no answer to my post)…and neither do YOU.

            Secondly, where do you see that I have anger and hate?? I did not show either of those emotions toward Ms. Jewett. You see shadows of fleeting things that aren’t there, a common misconception of “believers”.

            And how do you get to the place of telling me what I believe??? You presume too much, a symptom of a brainwashed, religion-besotted brain such as yours.

            How do you get from “he’s angry” to “therefore he believes in god”??? You obviously never took Logic 101 in college, if you even went to college.

            Your last paragraph is nothing but religious gibberish and lunacy, not worth any rational person’s time to try to unravel. You need to see a psychiatrist for your delusions before you post in here again.

          • bintalshamsa on February 12, 2015 at 7:29 pm

            All life is 100% fatal. No one makes it out alive. I have an incurable bone cancer (chondrosarcoma) in my chest The tumor attached to 2 of my ribs, pushed into my spinal column, and wrapped around the vein going to my heart. They’ve tried surgery twice. I’ve undergone radiation therapy. I’ve had chemotherapy for my lupus, too. Despite all of that, my cancer can’t be cured. Do you know how long ago I was diagnosed? Well, December made THIRTEEN YEARS. My belief in God has helped me GET THROUGH these ordeals. I never expected them to be taken away from me. They are a part of life. Cancer is a natural process that sometimes occurs. Some people get it. Some don’t. I don’t feel cheated, because I’ve had to go through this. In fact, it’s been the best thing for my life. It’s helped me understand what’s really important and taught me how to be happy no matter what doctors say about my prognosis.

            My faith has helped me even though *I’m* the one who has to face this. Having been by the side of many loved ones dying of cancer, let me tell ya’, it’s NOTHING compared to going through it yourself and I don’t know how *I* would have dealt with the stress and pain without something other than this life to focus on.

            You may not like that your son has cancer, but people should know that not everyone who has these fatal diseases sees faith as pointless. My God doesn’t go around trying to force people to believe. It’s your choice. I made my choice and I’m happier now than I ever was before the cancer diagnosis.



          • yellowdogdemocrat on February 13, 2015 at 2:00 am

            You’re right your god doesn’t force anyone to believe. It’s humans who do that job for him/her/it. And why doesn’t he/she/it stop his fan base from forcing belief? Is he/she/it just narccisistic? No it’s because he/she/it doesn’t exist.

            Go to a children’s hospital and observe all that terrible suffering and then ask yourself-no ask your god-why he/she/it allows such terrible suffering among the most vulnerable humans; children and babies.

            Let me tell you something about Atheists that very few Xians know; almost without exception, Atheists come from strong religious backgrounds and families. So now, if you are the least bit curious, you ask why we left religion. We left b/c WE READ THE BIBLE and found the stories too fantabulous and unbelievable in the rational universe we live in. We saw no evidence of a supreme being operating anywhere on Earth or anywhere else in reality. So we gave up that book of fanciful fables and we have never looked back.



          • bintalshamsa on February 15, 2015 at 8:45 am

            Why do you expect my God to behave as you think “he/she/it” should? I don’t have to go to a hospital to observe intense suffering. I have lived with more pain than most people could possibly imagine. When YOU have lived with bone cancer and lupus as long as I have, THEN you might be in a position to talk with authority about human suffering. Until then, you’re just guessing about what it’s like.

            Notice that I could care less about whether you believe in a God, but you are intent on making assertions to me about the existence of a God. See, since I’m not trying to convince you of anything and you are the one making the assertions, the onus is on you to prove the claim. Of course, we both know that you CAN’T prove that my God doesn’t exist just as you can’t prove that unicorns don’t exist or chupacabras don’t exist. At best, you can say that you don’t see evidence of their existence, but that’s it.

            The majority of the world’s atheists actually don’t come from Christian backgrounds. The majority of them come from atheist backgrounds. I’m actually, no curious about why you left religion. It doesn’t concern me, so I have no interest in pushing you to discuss anything about your life. See, that’s called “live and let live”. It’s a shame that more Western atheists haven’t figured out why it’s such a good idea.



          • M. Amaro on May 26, 2015 at 2:26 am

            Because you’re suffering is absolute and no one in the world could possibly hurt like you do? You are entitled, arrogant and delusional.



          • Gatinho on February 15, 2015 at 11:17 am

            If you are complaining about the suffering in the world and attributing that to GOD, then it is clear that you like many other atheists, agnostics, etc..that claim to have read the bible clearly didn’t understand anything in it..which is why it seems like a bunch of fantabulous unbelievable stories….yet the story of evolution and the other stories in science make rational sense to you i’m sure…oh the irony lolol…stay tuned for what science is going to reveal next to society. The fact that you say things like, “you have not witnessed any evidence of a supreme being operating” also proves to me that you are literally walking through this life blind to the everyday miracles that occur all around us. And if you think we live in a rational universe….check out quantum physics but I doubt that is in your range of comprehension. The smartest scientist are having to admit that there has to be some supreme being out there for this reality to even exist. It’s amazing that people will turn their backs on something that has stood the test of time and is still relevant today —> Bible and put their faith in science, which is constantly changing, created by imperfect men, and something which you also only understand at a very rudimentary level. The best part is that Atheist think believers have crazy faith. You my friend have amazing faith if you believe in science and the stories it has put forth to try and explain what God created. Enjoy your time in delusional land, I will pray for you. I’m truly sorry about your son, but you look at things through your eyes. There are parents out there that cry every night because they have never had a chance to have a son or daughter. You say there is no God, but act as if he owes us a long happy life….every breath is a blessing, to be alive is a blessing, you didn’t open your eyes and make your heart start beating and you don’t know and have no control over when your or any of your loved ones eyes will close and never open again, so my advice to you is to cherish every breath, every second, God gives you and your loved ones on this earth because they are nothing more than undeserved blessings.

            1) I am male not female.

            2) Your g-d doesn’t exist so he/she/it is powerless to take anything from anyone.

            3) How can any rational person be angry at something that doesn’t exist??? That’s insanity.

            4) I scoff at the rest of your insane rant.

            I am sorry to hear about your son but my prayers will be for you in hopes that you find peace in the midst of your situation. God’s will has a purpose and it’s not always what we want but it still has it’s purpose.



          • Freddie Davis on June 26, 2016 at 12:52 pm

            Unforeseen occurrences will befall us all sorry to hear about your son but God had something to do with that it’s the result of sin nothing more God will not heal your son but if you remain obedient and your son does likewise he will obtain everlasting life which this life is only temporary do not curse God because of your trials just understand why clouds exist that’s because of mankind not God. If nothing else realized this God himself gave up his son for you and I to be forgiven for our sins so he understands your feelings when it comes to your children so just pray to him for strength and focus on the promise not the circumstances



          • Evenbetta on June 27, 2016 at 1:35 pm

            I’m so sad to hear that your son is DYING as you stated, but you must understand. Being MAD at GOD is not the answer. He’s REAL, and OUR prayers get answered whether we like them or NOT! The Bible also says, faith without works is DEAD. You can Pray all day and night, but until you get out there and staying steadfast. Your PRAYERS will be answered. That is what GOD is showing you. I don’t know where you live, but if you’re in America, pack up your BABY and get him to COLORADO….. Put him on the Cannabis Oil. Stop putting your faith in Doctors and get back to what’s really at stake. At the end of the day, the TEST you’ve gone through with your son will be YOUR TESTIMONY to the World of how REAL GOD really is! Peace and Blessings Dear!!!!

            What century are you texting us from? What Lynchings are you referring to?

            The last lynching in the US was 1981. It resulted in one execution, two life sentences. And, the fourth died waiting for trial.

            That any group of a-wipes can do whatever they want in the name of GOD, is not an indictment of GOD. It is an indictment against a-wipes. In this case KKK a-wipes.

            GOD gives man free will. Man uses that free will with varying results. but he usually thinks he is doing the right thing. Hence the phrase, :The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.”

            But, in aggregate, Civilization advances.

            You could be the worst excuse of a believer that has ever been. You clearly skipped all the parts in the bible you wanted to and just read the parts that justify your ignorance. Your spitting judgement, hate and responding to drama that you have no business involving yourself with.

            Would your God respond the way you are? Would your God expect you to go about finding the truth the way you are. Would you God find it acceptable that you claim to know “fact” for a situation you were not present to witness?

            Have your opinion, but be 100% clear that it is your opinion. Do not involve or represent your belief system and faith as a means of justifying your opinion. When you do, you look and sound every little bit like a 1 day a week Christian and a 6 day a week moron.

          Because “GOD” gave all human beings a “Free Will” to choose which way they want to go…”Evil” or “Good”. Bell and his brother chose to do “Evil” by taking an innocent person life!! What type of person are you? If it was the other way around, I bet you would not have made that comment….shame on you!

          • Larry Lewis on February 10, 2015 at 5:48 am

            Yes, i believe in science because God created for HIS purpose not man dude. For example scientists still dont know where the big bang come from, oh should i say God spoke and gave “birth” that set forth the universe. Did man create the universe? No. Did the universe birth itself? No. So it leads to the one true answer, God.



          • REALSOUL4 on February 10, 2015 at 11:53 am

            Science is man theory of how life began, another human being just like the rest of “US”. Put you in the mind of “SATAN” who was a narcissistic who thought he knew more then “GOD” and got kicked out of “Heaven”. Man is the same way…..



          • wiseoldsnail on February 15, 2015 at 7:58 pm

            It’s the spirit of “GOD” who causes all human beings to breath, when you no longer breathing…you’re “DEAD”! The eggs and sperm only form the body but the spirit of “GOD” causes all human beings to “LIVE”!



          • wiseoldsnail on February 15, 2015 at 7:58 pm

  4. Helen Garrett on February 7, 2015 at 11:37 am

    I said all the time that’s why it was covered up , that FBI son was involved. We all know if it was black on black crime it wouldn’t have been covered up. That’ s a dam shame. Some jobs need to be lost yesteday. That’s really fowl.

    • Marrda on February 9, 2015 at 3:49 am

      Lol no if it was black on black crime there would be no mention of it other than becoming just another number in an already growing statistic. The ONLY reason this story has recieved traction is due to the white on black crime.

      • Jason on February 9, 2015 at 4:34 pm

        Your so called Black on Black crime has the same stats as White on White crime. Only difference is Blacks committing crimes – go straight to jail without passing go, so there is no need to protest and march over it. People want justice, so calling out Black on Black crime is only a deflection from the justice which often elludes Black people especially when the perpetrators are White.

    • Wanda Jewett on February 9, 2015 at 11:30 am

      Yes that will come next this is the worst crime on all level and the cover all heads will be turned they all will do time even his dad and all murders involved !!!!

  10. Lloyd Gladmon on February 8, 2015 at 11:54 am

    I’m just shaking my head at some of the negative comments. Some people are upset because a young man lost his scholarship. What about the young man that list his life? Or the mother and father that list their child. It’s not about black and white, it’s about what’s wrong and what’s right. For those who still are convinced that it’s not a conspiracy check out this video done by anonymous that really took an in depth look at the case.

    For the sake of common sense those responsible need to be dealt with in the same manner as they did with the young warrior Kendrick. Eye for an eye is the only justice needed. And for those who keep leaving it up to the god of your oppressors, the god who sits and does nothing for his children, the god who is always fighting on our behalf and actually PREVENTING these atrocities and not allowing our innocent to be killed…NOT!! To y’all i say please WAKE UP!!! You worship the god they gave you; a concept that is only 6th century in origin. My Ancestors have been here longer than that and worshipped no gods & managed to rule the world and build civilizations without one until the Caucasoids showed up. Our Ancestors only followed “christianity” by FORCED indoctrination but now we shouldve waken up to see the fukkery! Y’all serve, worship & pray to a EUROPEAN CONCEPT and you think they care about you??? They are still killing, raping, torturing, poisening, & corrupting YOU and y’all still wait on this god to save you. Until y’all wake up and realize that the only ones who will save us is US, your prayers for justice will continue to go UNANSWERED! I’m right because it keeps happening doesn’t it?? PROVE ME WRONG!!!

  22. Jason on February 9, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    I believe in God – and you can pray all you want, but nothing will happen until you get off your knees and act. Now that the college has been PRESSURED to “do the right thing” – there needs to be a ton of pressure applied to our Justice Department. Yes I said it. No more pacifiers for us, We need to see action and not hear “the Justice Department is investigating” only to find out months later that they are closing the investigation WITHOUT any charges being filed.

  31. CriticalThinker on February 10, 2015 at 11:38 am

    Who’s going to watch the watcher? People have blind faith in authorities, the ‘infallible’ justice system etc when they are not impacted. If the only person/ or 2 people are seen on an 2-3 day late instead of immediately released obviously incomplete video(was the video the day before an the day after “having problems”?) going back and forth to a location where a death has occurred, changes clothes, has prior history of fighting with the deceased, and the deceased’s 19″inch shoulders somehow were rolled/stuffed along with his entire body into a 14″ opening(you’ve got to know that’s humanly impossible to do by yourself if not I have some wetlands in Nevada to sell ya), where the blood is in several different locations and not tested. Where is the “girl” who was having such a massive bleed out and where are her nurse or hospital check ins not records just the fact that she was having an issue and needed treatment? The people seen walking in and out of the scene didn’t have their blood tested. These authoritative figures all know and look out for each other hence the 7 judges recusing themselves because they know they have worked with the parents of these boys and cannot be impartial. What facts are you looking for? Here are some facts. Evidence can always be tampered with and it doesn’t take critical thinking skills to see that has occurred here. It’s hard to see the “facts”when so much of the case was mishandled and evidence not gathered properly or in some cases at all. If you don’t believe there was a murder, anyone with 1/2 a brain must concede that the case was mishandled and if not, please never perform jury duty because you are jaded. The investigation should have been handled by outside maybe even 3rd party individuals from day 1 and there should be prosecution of everyone involved that mishandled the evidence and DID NOT follow protocol!

  32. Robin Cassin on February 10, 2015 at 2:18 pm

    Can we keep on subject? It is not about God doing or not doing, this is not about believing in HIM or not. You believe or you don’t it’s a personal choice. One of the blessing we have is free will. Keep on point a young man is dead and there need to be real answers and resolution.

  33. Rome on February 10, 2015 at 4:52 pm

    Most people in the comment thread missing the picture because they gave no explanation im this article. But Kendrick Johnson was apart of a bigger organ trafficking conspiracy thats has been going on forever. That is why his body was biried w/o consent and was larer exhumed only to be found missing all his organs and stuffed with newspaper. Read about this. Google him and organs the article was on CNN. Also look on Worldstarhiphop.com they found a black man last week in the desert w/o any of his organs.

  45. Thomas Dean on June 27, 2016 at 6:40 am

    I thought this story was about retribution for a youngster rolled up/killed in an athletic mat? So many times, people over spiritualize an issue/problem rather than address the facts practically. The young man was killed and members of the legal system covered it up! There has to be consequences! The depravity of humanity is responsible for sickness, disease, and wickedness/evil. Some people try and blame the Creator; when in actuality, it’s the sins/ rebellion of mankind that leads to calamity! The Creator has a set of principles that when followed, leads to success i.e. health, wealth, and prosperity. When these principles are not followed, the result is sickness, evil, and death. Humans have been given the potential/capacity for obtaining the highest level of intelligence. However in many cases, humans use this ability to control, hurt, and destroy others. There has to be consequences for this type of behavior! Blaming God for our foolishness is like blaming our parents for our robbing a bank or liquor store! For those who don’t believe, it’s your choice. It’s called, free-will. However, everyone has a day of reckoning! EVERYONE! When we hurt others, there will be a payday! There is nothing spiritual about that! It’s called, what goes around, comes around!
