Four teens were arrested Tuesday in connection with gang-related activities.

Jordan Jamal Lovett, 18; Michael Di’Quez Scott, 17; Nicholas Lockhart, 17; and Marquise Deion Lewis, 17; were booked into the Augusta-Richmond County jail on charges of reckless conduct and unlawful street gang activity, booking records show.

The arrests were related to a June 29 incident, when Richmond County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 3300 block of Thames Place to investigate reports that shots had been fired at a party. When deputies arrived at the house, a group of people ran inside.

Deputies entered the house and asked who had been shooting, according to a Sheriff’s Office report. The homeowner, Demonia Jones, 39, told the officers they needed a warrant.

Jones was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge. The party-goers were told to leave the house.

A neighbor later found a 9mm shell casing in the 3300 block of Thames Place.

If you ever wonder why black crime is running rampant all you have to do is look at the culture of a person who'd demand a warrant when police come to investigate a shooting. Instead of helping the police get to the bottom of the incident they foolishly try to provide cover for the criminals. With adults providing that kind of mentoring there's no wonder the kids are messed up. Youth crime starts with bad parenting and kids without good role models and until that changes there will be more and more young black kids looking like Obama laying in the streets.

The Same As

@LL The same kind that named her two kids in DeKalb County (NE Atlanta), Lemonjello and Orangejello. My cousin in-law is a former cop in DeKalb. Honest... It is not quite pronounced as it is spelled, but that is what the woman named her two kids.
Hey - Demonia - it is called Probable Cause -- you don't need a warrant.

Is it a coincident that so many have strange names?

it ain't so. sharpton, naacp, obama and holder said out loud that teenage black youths, similar to Trayvon Martin, weren't capable of forming the intent to do criminal acts, much less gang activity.

Cutting Edge

39-year-old Demonia Jones would have been christened in 1972. Her mother would have been on the cutting edge of the "give your child a strange name" fad. The fad has not yet faded away, it seems.

LL, that fad MIGHT be waning

LL, that fad MIGHT be waning after a large study was conducted a few years ago. The study involved REAL Fortune 500 companies...without the knowledge of the HR depts...where the exact same person would enter the exact same resume for a job, with the only difference being the names. One resume would have a decidedly "ethnic" name (like a Lemonjello) and the other would have a "normal" name (like Susan). Don't remember the exact percentage, but it was found that the "nornal" named-resume was picked about 85% more often for an interview! I'd say that was pretty significant.

Names

The only explanation I can come up with, is that letters are thrown at a wall, and whatever letters stick, that becomes a name, because most make no sense whatever. Can't imagine sticking some of the "syllables" on kids for names.

@ corgimom and those

@ corgimom and those similarly inclined, please note there is no city called "South Augusta" in Georgia. Thames Place is on the south side of the consolidated Richmond County/Augusta yet the address is listed as Thames Place, HEPHZIBAH, GA. Also, Thames Place was pronounced Thomas Place on a local media source, which is not how to pronounce it, which probably caused even more confusion. We just want to have some idea where these things are occurring in defense of each of our family (and friends) homes and properties in Augusta and all these mistakes waste our time.

Too bad this won't cost those responsible for these four

little monsters right in their wallet. EBT and any other public support awarded to their families on their behalf (ie, because they were born) should be suspended while their cases are adjudicated. If they're convicted, neither they nor their future offspring should be granted any public assistance.

It's possibly one of the frighteningly few good things about the inevitable reality of everyone's DNA on record.
