*****Original post below*****
How much do you want to bet that each of them already had a long violent criminal record with them being arrested and released back out into the neighborhood, serving no jail time. (emphasis mine)

👇 back to my regular spiel. 👇
Murder is already a crime. We don't have a gun problem. We have a lack of self-control problem, a criminal supremacists problem and a Commie Democrats local district attorney's, judges, parole officers soft on crime problem, not doing shit to catch the criminals as in crimes go unsolved, and when they do catch the criminals, they immediately release them back onto the streets to allow them to continue terrorizing the community. These same people siding with the criminals want to take away YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms in order to defend yourself, your business, your family and home against these criminal supremacists and a tyrannical government. Remember, criminals DO NOT obey laws. Therefore, criminals will have access to guns through gun trafficking venues and you will be left defenseless with no guns because the same government siding with criminals THEY'RE ALLOWING to terrorize you with guns said they wanted to keep you safe from guns. The anti-gun prosecutors are not even prosecuting gun crimes. But god forbid you kill an intruder, robber or rapist in self-defense in your home or on your private property, these same Commie Democrat district attorneys or prosecutors will charge you with murder and have you locked up for years in prison.

An eighth suspect has been charged in the slaying of a young Birmingham mother who was held against her will and tortured for hours before she was fatally shot.

Ariana Lashay Robinson, 23, is charged with felony murder - kidnapping in the killing of 20-year-old Mahogany Jackson. Jackson leaves behind a toddler daughter.

Robinson was booked into the Birmingham City Jail at 2:40 p.m. Thursday. Warrants against were issued Friday afternoon.

Authorities said Robinson was among the suspects seen in videos recorded during Jackson’s time in captivity. With help from the community, police said, she was identified early in the investigation as potentially being involved.

Lewis was booked into the Jefferson County Jail at 2:43 p.m. Friday where she will be held without bond.

Brandon Pope, 24, Francis Harris, 25, and Jeremiah McDowell, 18, are charged with capital murder during a first-degree kidnapping and capital murder during first-degree sodomy.

McDowell made his first court appearance before District Judge William Bell Friday morning. He shook his as the judge read his charges to him.

McDowell said he did not have the money to hire an attorney, so he will be appointed one.

Giovannie Clapp, 23, and Blair Green, 25, are charged with felony murder, first-degree kidnapping and first-degree sodomy.

Teja Lewis, 26, is charged with felony murder.

Si’Niya McCall, 23, is charged with felony murder, first-degree kidnapping, and first-degree sodomy.

Lewis and Clapp are also charged with second-degree assault for pistol-whipping Jackson.

At the time of her arrest, Lewis was already out on bond from a previous charge of discharging a firearm into an occupied building. A woman was inside that residence at the time.

That incident happened May 26, 2022. A judge has now revoked her bond in that case following the new charges in Jackson’s death.

Mahogany Jackson, 20, messaged her mother early Sunday, saying, “Send the police apt 3 held hostage don’t call.’’ She also sent her location to her sister.

Her nude body was found in Monday’s predawn hours under a mattress in an illegal dumping site in the 1700 block of Laurel Avenue in southwest Birmingham. She had been shot at least one time.

At least part of the sexual assault on Jackson was video recorded. Police Chief Scott Thurmond said that video played a pivotal role in the investigation and the subsequent charges.

Some of those videos have made their way onto social media, prompting Jackson’s mother, Gail Maddox, to issue a plea on Facebook for people to stop sending them to the family.

“That’s my child. Please stop. I can’t take it,’’ she wrote.

Birmingham police Chief Scott Thurmond called Jackson’s murder one of the worst he’s seen in his law enforcement career.

“It was absolutely disgusting,” Thurmond said.

Jefferson County District Attorney Danny Carr described it as heinous and unimaginable.

“The actions displayed by these defendants were barbaric and have no place in society,’’ Carr said. “The senseless and inhumane treatment perpetuated on young Mahogany Jackson was very disturbing and violent.”

Family and friends gathered Thursday evening at the apartment complex where Jackson was initially held against her will.

Here sister, Jazmyne Maddox, said Jackson would be stunned at outpouring of emotion and support from the community following her death.

“She wouldn’t believe this,’’ Maddox said. “She would be like, ‘Really? This is for me?”

Jackson’s Celebration of Life is set for Saturday, March 9.

A mother is pleading with the community to make sure no one else’s cries for help go unheard. This comes after Mahogany Jackson was kidnapped and killed earlier this week.

Aniah Blanchard was kidnapped and murdered in 2019. WVTM 13 spoke with her mother, Angela Harris, who said she’s heartbroken after hearing of Jackson’s death, and it brings up painful memories of losing her own daughter.

“Just the pure evilness of what happened to Mahogany is more than heartbreaking of course,” Harris said. “It’s awful, and it shouldn’t have happened. Knowing what her mother is feeling right now is heartbreaking. When I think about what happened to Aniah—and then to think about Mahogany--what Mahogany went through, I know she was scared, and scared probably is not even the word.”

Jackson texted her family just before 8 a.m. on Sunday, crying out for help and dropped a pin with her location.

“She did what she was supposed to do,” Harris said. “She reached out for help.”

The investigation into Blanchard’s death shows she tried to defend herself by reaching for her killer’s gun and put up a fight to save her life just like Jackson did.

“I’m so proud of her for trying,” Harris said. “I’m proud of her for dropping that pin, for trying to get in touch with her family members. That’s what breaks my heart is knowing that she tried.”

After Jackson’s death, Harris said she learned anyone who fears for their life can text 911 for help.

“Gun violence is every day,” she said. “We know that now. It’s every day, everywhere, all over, and it just seems to me like people are accepting it for some reason and we should not be accepting it.”

Even though the feature didn’t save Jackson’s life, she hopes to bring awareness to it can save someone else’s.

“It does not bring any more peace or comfort to her family and her friends,” Harris said, “but as far as her and remembering her—knowing that she did do something that could help save somebody else—it does mean something.”

Harris said she is tired of seeing mothers grieving the loss of their children. She is working to put an end to violence but isn’t sure how to do it. She said she won’t stop until she figures out the answer.
