End Of Days: Ohio Police Say 10-Year Old Is Suspected To Have Murked His Mom

“Back in the days our parents used to take care of us, look at ‘em now, they even fawkin scared of us”-Notorious B.I.G (Things Done Changed)

A 10-year-old boy is in juvenile custody after telling a neighbor that he had shot and killed his mother, an Ohio sheriff said Monday.

Deborah McVay, 46, was found dead of a single gunshot wound to the head Sunday night in Big Prairie, located about midway between Cleveland and Columbus, said Holmes County Sheriff Tim Zimmerly. Paramedics found McVay lying facedown on her living room floor, and she was pronounced dead at the scene, Zimmerly said.

Authorities went to the home after a neighbor called a sheriff’s dispatcher to say McVay’s son had come to her home and said he had just shot his mother.

McVay’s body was transported to the Stark County Coroner’s office for an autopsy. The sheriff said McVay’s 15-year-old daughter is currently staying with relatives. It is unclear whether she witnessed the shooting.

The 10-year-old boy is being held in Richland County Juvenile Detention and will appear in court Monday afternoon. A woman who answered the phone at McVay’s home said she had no comment and hung up.

Authorities are investigating what may have caused the shooting.

Its sad as hell that this tragedy has ruined 2 lives. One day this little boy is going to regret killing his mother in the worst way, and by that time it will probably be WAY too late. SMH

Hate It or Love It?!?! Oprah’s OWN Channel Debuts To Mixed Reviews

The maiden voyage of Oprah’s new flagship set sail on Saturday and although the expectations were sky high for the media mogul the critics aren’t quite ready to bathe her in praise just yet.

…Caryn James, the former New York Times critic who now blogs at IndieWire, wrote that the network had “a whiff of spirituality, a huge amount of life-style fluff, and a surprising layer of substance,” though she cautioned that the shows on offer–which include reality shows centered around celebrities such as the Judds, Shania Twain and Sarah Ferguson, as well as programs with Oprah stablemates like Dr. Phil and Gayle King–were not for the non-Oprah fans out there. James sounded an optimistic note about some of the more serious documentary programming to come on the channel as well.

Salon’s Matt Zoller Seitz committed himself to watch an entire day of the network. Zoller Seitz assured readers that he was not a fan of Oprah, and that he had begun his experiment by resolving not to “succumb to [Oprah's] cult-of-personality Amway malarkey.” He had plenty of bile for some of the shows on the channel, and wrote that the will.i.am-penned theme song almost had him “weaving a noose from nylon recycling twine and scrawling a farewell note.”

However, he wrote, the channel slowly started to work its way into his brain, and he found himself starting to care about Jay-Z while watching an episode of OWN’s “Master Class,” where celebrities talk about their life and talents. By the end of the day, Zoller Seitz said, “I have succumbed to Stockholm syndrome and am making lists of clutter to remove from my own home and resolving to enroll immediately in a cooking class…damn you, Oprah Winfrey, and Happy New Year.”

The most negative review came from The Root’s Jennifer Mabry. She pronounced herself “disappointed” by the programming for OWN, which, she said, “seems content to follow the new television model of programming that exploded in the wake of the 2008 Hollywood writers’ strike: Find anyone with a heartbeat and a willingness to have cameras follow them during their ordinary day-to-day life, and voilà — we’ve got ourselves a TV show!”

Listen, nevermind these critics, Oprah didn’t make all that money by putting her name on some bullsh*t. The Miami Heat started the season on shaky ground too, and now look at them. Fall back and watch how this thing plays out…haters!

How many of you all watched the programs on OWN this weekend? What was your impression?

Twin Infants Critically Injured When A$$hole Cabbie Jumps A Curb

Prayers go out to the Mechuca family as they wait for the news from doctors about the condition of their infant children.

Twin 9-month-old boys were seriously injured yesterday in Brooklyn when a livery cab smashed into a parked minivan, jumped the curb and ran into their stroller, police said.

Patricia Mechuca, 21, was pushing her sons, Gustavo and Daniel, on Fourth Avenue near 44th Street in Sunset Park at around 1:15 p.m. when the livery cab lost control, her friend said.

“We were about to leave. I went upstairs and two minutes later, I heard the crash,” said the pal, Ismael Remigio.
Mechuca was visiting from Baltimore with her husband to celebrate the new year with his family.

She, her babies, the driver and three passengers were rushed to Lutheran Hospital. One of the twins was in critical condition with head trauma. The other six were in stable condition.

The cabby, Gregorio Patino, 57, was charged with driving without a license, reckless driving and imprudent speed.

THIS muhfuggas GOTS to go to jail for a lonnnnnng time! How the hell you driving a cab with no license??? SMH Definitely the way to start the new year.
