COLUMBIA, S.C.- Three people upset that a news crew was reporting on the arrest of a relative, attacked the television reporter and yelled racial slurs at her and a photographer, authorities said Tuesday. [Source]
What is the world coming to? I guess violence just runs through this family. It’s obviously they haven’t learned to channel their anger. The suspect, Shane Howell was arrested for killing his grandfather, Tommy Howell, during an argument in which he hit his grandfather in the head.
Now, other family members have attacked a black news reporter, Charmayne Brown, while she was standing just feet away on public property from the family home to cover the arrest of Shane Howell. The three family members, Tousha Smith, 31, Billie Joe Taylor, 31, and Trina Vinson, 48, were arrested and held on charges of assault and battery.
The whole thing was caught on tape by nearby white camera crew. The family didn’t attack the white camera crew, they went straight for Miss Charmayne. This is my problem with filming, there is a black boy on the right using his camera phone to film instead of helping, and another news crew just standing by, although they did call 911.

News Reporter Attacked
I was just praising Raven for her curves and beauty and then she pulls a publicity stunt like this. This outfit is what Raven Symone wore to the Christian Audigier’s One World Collection during Fashion Week in Los Angeles. I understand she has movie coming out and the movie is a comedy, but when you walk the red carpet for some odd reason you should dress in a more serious manner. I believe the reason is so that people will take your work as a sincere effort, even if it’s comical in nature. Considering the fact that she has $400 million or so in the bank (I still can’t believe that) she just may know what she’s doing, and maybe the rest of us should sit back and take notes.
