14-Year-Old South Phila. Boy Shot Dead

by KYW’s Jim Melwert

A 14-year-old boy was shot and killed Saturday in broad daylight in South Philadelphia. Police have charged 18-year-old Charles Meyers of South Philadelphia with his murder.

Police say at about 4pm, 10 kids -- including 14-year-old Tykeem Law -- were on five bikes on the 900 block of Federal Street, near the Italian Market.

A car coming down the street honked the horn and yelled at the kids to move out the street. Four of the five bikes got out of the way. One didn't move fast enough ridden by 14-year-old Tykeem Law. Police say words may have been exchanged, and the driver of the car pulled a gun and shot Tykeem. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Family friend Amanda Savage:

"I'm a mother myself, so I can't even imagine what his mother and father and his whole family are going through right now."

Police were able to stop the car and catch the alleged shooter a few blocks away.

Go to north philly. Enough said. It could have been a green person killing a purple. Things happen, and in North philly it blacks killing blacks. Ohh, and guess what, whites also kill whites. Why does everything have racial hate about everything. By the way Charles was an advocate of the civil rights movement. Having gone to school with him he was very interested in the progression of the civil rights act of 1964. He was a good kid, with a road rage problem.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
