This time in Newark, NJ – which for those of you who didn’t grow up in Essex County is not only the city with the highest crime rate but also one of the highest HIV infection rates.
Occupy defenders will say that at least this time a lawyer representing the group called the cops. People with brains will note that the cops were called well after police knew the two were in the NY/NJ area. We also note that the 13-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl were allowed to sleep at the camp with the adults. Word on the street is that the hospital visit for the runaways was detox:
MYFOXNY.COM – Two young runaways from Massachusetts were found living with Occupy Newark Protesters in Military Park. The Newark, N.J. police department was alerted to the 13-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl by a lawyer for the protest group.
The pair arrived at Military park on Sunday and camped overnight with protesters. The teens reportedly ran away from their homes during the early morning hours on December 4, 2011 and made their way to Newark.
Connor Southard and Laura Dixon, who appeared to be unharmed, were transported to a local hospital as a precautionary measure.
Social workers responded to the hospital to interview the children and coordinate efforts with the police as well as authorities from Massachusetts. Their parents have been notified about their safety.
Cameras captured the teens at South Station in Boston when they ran away, giving officials a lead that the teens were heading towards New York City.
The article has a picture of the kids so you can see there is not a chance in hell anyone mistook them for adults.
Again I ask, what kind of movement is populated by a bunch of people who want do drugs around teen runaways? Maybe Occupy Newark could answer that. I contacted them while writing this but got no response.

This report claims that finding out your autistic daughter ran off secretly with her baby to “be with” some weirdo she met online is a happy ending. I’m predicting that when all is said and done, not so much. Stick with it until the end – does this sound right to you?
40-year-old Tammy L. Lewis was last seen March 17th by two separate friends. The missing woman was known to disappear for a few days at a time and she was struggling with drug addiction. In this instance however, Tammy Lewis’ family was very concerned.
Tammy’s house had been broken into, her car had reportedly been stolen and there have been reports of her receiving death threats prior to disappearing. From Fox Carolina:
After she went missing, Lewis’ family told FOX Carolina that it was not unusual for Lewis to go missing for a couple of days at a time, but this amount of time was unusual.
Police said at that time that they completed a search of Lewis’ home, but did not release the details of the search.
Lewis’ sister, Tiona Perry, said Lewis’ home was broken into three days before she went missing. She said Lewis also reported her car had been stolen before her disappearance.
Perry said she found a scene of disarray inside her sister’s home when she went to check on her. She said Lewis’ power had been cut and there was a strong smell of bleach inside, to which Lewis is allergic.
Now police have announced that 25-year-old Stephanie Bailey and 27-year-old Antwon Michael Quarles Jr. have been charged with the beating death of Tammy Lewis. Quarles is already sitting in the penn on federal parole violation charges so he hasn’t been served his arrest warrant yet. This sounds to me like Quarles got picked up and rolled on his girlfriend.
No motive has been announced yet but it’s likely drug related. WSPA has plenty of updates and the original video of the case:
