Woman who climbed Statue of Liberty was in federal custody.

Now the woman who climbed the Statue of Liberty was in federal custody after police ended up climbing the statue and risking their lives to remove her. Police removed this woman to prevent herself from being injured and to prevent others from being injured as well.

On the date of July 4, 2018, NYPD apprehended an African woman named Therese Patricia Okoumou after taking up a temporary residence on Lady Liberty's right foot on the Statue of Liberty. NYPD took Therese Patricia Okoumou downtown into federal custody at 5:00 PM. Therese Patricia Okoumou had been in federal custody for 1 day and was released on July 5, 2018.

Since then she has been released on bail but is still under the eyes of federal police. Legal officials are still monitoring her court case as charges are still pending. NYPD is keeping a close watch on her as well.

The members of Rise and Resist NY are going to continue on working to secure the best legal representation for Therese Patricia Okoumou. These are the plans as to what Rise and Resist NY are making for Patricia.



On July 5, 2018, Rise and Resist (@riseandresistny) released a statement on twitter and in public at the United States District Court Southern District of New York stating the following.:

[The members of Rise and Resist have listened to the criticism of the statement we released earlier Wednesday evening. On reflection, we realize that in our haste to complete the statement so that we could continue working to secure the best legal representation for Therese Patricia Okoumou (Patricia).

We unintentionally led people to believe that we were distancing the group from Patricia. Nothing could be further from the truth. Patricia is our friend, our comrade, our sister. From the moment that we realized that this amazing woman whom we have gotten to know, love, and respect was the person who had climbed to the foot of Lady Liberty, we had three concerns: one for her safety from falling, second, for her safety as a woman of color who was about to be engaged by law enforcement, and third, to find her the best legal representation that that we could. Our members will be at 500 Pearl Street at 2:00 PM today and we welcome any New Yorker who has been inspired by her utter and absolute fierceness to join us. We unequivocally support Patricia. We will have an additional statement later with updates.

Rise and Resist will be doing jail support for Patricia, and is arranging great legal representation for her. We will let everyone know how they can further support her as soon as we find out more info.

We’ve received several requests to help Patricia, a member of Rise and Resist who climbed the Statue of Liberty today. Once we find out her legal needs, we’ll post any efforts to help her on our Twitter feed. It’s reported that she’s been charged with federal misdemeanors.

Jay W. Walker, an organizer, told The Los Angeles Blade that “Patricia is a powerful, committed, and passionate activist. She has become an integral member of Rise and Resist over the course of the last several months.]


National Park Service spokesman Jerry Willis told New York Post the following below.:

National Park Service spokesman Jerry Willis said, “People are moved when they get here. So to have their visit cut short or denied is extremely unfortunate. I’m really sad for people who had to leave the island or who weren’t able to get over here at all.”

“You don’t need to tower like Lady Liberty to be able to see that there’s a security lapse at the National Park Service. But somebody with some climbing skills would be able to pull it off. An extremely dangerous stunt to pull. The NPS is assessing the possibility of a security breach.”

Federal government sources said that at the end of the day. The exact park officials are to blame due to the apparent lack of security and awareness.

Rodessa High School history of Rodessa, Lousiana forgotten update!

Rodessa High School history of Rodessa, Lousiana forgotten update!

Rodessa High School was one of Louisiana’s many forgotten schools. In fact, Rodessa High School is one of Lousiana’s forgotten schools. Only so much is known about this high school. Many people have claimed the school to be “haunted”.


Rodessa High School was designed by Louisiana architect Seymour Van Os in 1937 as a two story brick building on a steel and concrete foundation and was built with acquired oil money and donations. The school building is about 33,437 square feet on 5 acres of land. Rodessa High School was built at a cost of $195,000. The two story building had 20 classrooms. The Rodessa High School building was a Public Works Administration building built in the 1930s as part of Lousiana’s New Deal heritage.

Classrooms for the 250 students were held in temporary buildings as the structure could not hold all of the students enrolled at this school at the time. 250 out of the 800 students attended classes in the temporary buildings until 1939.

Rodessa High School finally opened in September 1939. Enrollment in the beginning was 800 students. The first high school principal was Gladys Pitts Hendrick, a Rodessa native. Grades 1 through 11 were taught here. Rodessa High School (Rodessa School) was operated by Caddo Parish School District from 1939 to 1973 in Rodessa, Lousiana.

The first high school principal was Gladys Pitts Hendrick, a Rodessa native. Miss Gladys Hendrick was one of the first teachers at the school. (Ref: Shreveport Times, Page 7A, October 19, 1947)

In 1939, a tornado wiped out most of the town, but this school building somehow survived miraculously. Many people were killed in the tornado of 1939. Those killed in the 1939 tornado were buried in Tyson Cemetery, west of Rodessa High School.

A cemetery is located next to Rodessa High School and is called Tyson Cemetery. Tyson Cemetery was established sometime in the early 19th century. Several early 19th century interments can be found at this cemetery. This cemetery is still active. Modern headstones and fresh graves can be found.


Rodessa High School closed as a high school in 1955 when a new high school was built in nearby Vivian. The new North Caddo High School consolidated all of the high schools in the North Caddo Parish. The last senior class to graduate Rodessa High School was in 1955.

In 1956, Rodessa High School was renamed to Rodessa Elementary School (better known as Rodessa School) and remained that way until its closure. Rodessa School became a K-8 school for Caddo Parish School District. Once Rodessa High School closed, high school students had to start attending school in nearby Vivian, Louisiana to complete their education.

Rodessa High School was an all white school prior to 1965. The school desegregated in 1965 during the 1965-1966 school year.

After a high amount of asbestos was found in heater vent pipes by maintenance workers for the Caddo Parish School District, Rodessa High School was shut down effectively in 1973. Asbestos contributed to low test scores and appearent mesothelioma.Rodessa High School had also closed down due to a lack of funding, dwindling enrollment, and desegregation.

The gym had burned in a fire once after the school closed. So many people killed that they had to use the school as the morgue and also had to line the deceased up out front of the school as well as the back of the school. Many people have claimed Rodessa High School to be a “haunted school”. (Ref: HauntLA)

Someone at some point had set up a meth lab inside the former Rodessa High School. Exactly when is currently unknown. Over the years, the school was vandalized and stripped by scrappers. (Ref: uer.ca)


In 1996, there was a bit of debating about what to do with the former Rodessa High School property. However another discovery of asbestos was found. The heater vent pipes were made almost entirely of asbestos! So demolition would bankrupted the school district at the time. Nothing happened as a result. However the school district has evaluated the land and determined if there is a need for the land several times over the years.

In 2008, a group of ghost hunters were arrested for trespassing on the former Rodessa High School campus by the female sheriff deputy officer for the city of Rodessa. Several others have been given warnings by the female sheriff deputy officer to stay away from the property as it is unsafe.  Several others have trespassed on the property including paranormal experts, ghost hunters, and urban explorers curious about what was left behind.


In 2016, a handful of newspapers reported about the Caddo Parish School District considering having Rodessa High School demolished.

In August 9, 2016, Caddo Parish School Board considered demolishing the old Rodessa High School as a recommendation from district staff. Shreveport Times reports the building is too far gone to renovate and it is currently not economically viable for remodeling. Caddo Parish School District Superintendent Lamar Goree says officials, school board members, and administrators have concerns and fear the building is too dangerous to remain in the community because of its structural condition. Not because it’s a huge building.

The property was fenced with a standard 6 foot chainlink fence and was overgrown with vegetation brush. Its interior had been vandalized severely. Most of windows were broken. The roof had deteriorated. The Rodessa High School building itself was contaminated with asbestos.

On April 8, 2018, the Rodessa High School building was demolished. All that remained was the concrete slab foundation which was later demolished. Caddo Parish School District still owns the property.


Rodessa High School is located at 9634 Rodessa Ida Road, Rodessa, Louisiana, US 71069.

African woman Therese Patricia Okoumou climbs the Statue of Liberty in New York to protest ICE.

On Wednesday, July, 4, 2018, African woman Therese Patricia Okoumou climbed the Statue of Liberty in New York City, New York, US to protest ICE. According to investigators, she was protesting Trump’s zero-tolerance policy on immigration, protesting ICE, immigration laws of the United States, and separating families at the Mexico-US border.

While taking up a temporary residence on Lady Liberty's right foot, she unfurled an ‘Abolish ICE’ banner at the base of the statue on Wednesday. Therese Patricia Okoumou vowed to stay until every illegal immigrant kid was released from ICE custody.

New York Daily News reported she was part of a “’Rise and Resist” protest on Independence Day. She had been taking part in the protest for about one week now with the Rise and Resist group. She was mainly protesting immigration laws and policies of the United States. Some activists and citizens claim she probably did that for attention. Some people state or claim that there was a good chance she was already receiving welfare from the government. However that is not the case here. She had been a part of Rise and Resist NY for four months.

What did this woman accomplish?
Police ended up climbing the statue and risking their lives to save her from injury and her own ignorance. Therese Patricia Okoumou was arrested after climbing to the base of the Statue of Liberty and taking up a temporary residence on Lady Liberty's right foot. She was under federal custody but now has been released.

2 university shootings every month recorded as new average in the United States revealed and revisited again.

There are at least 2 university shootings every single month that occur with the confines in the United States. On average, there have been 2 university shootings every month in the United States. We're already halfway into 2018, and there already have been 24 school shootings where people are hurt or killed for that matter.

A portion of all the school shootings that have occurred this year have occurred college campuses and at universities. 25% of school shootings have taken place or took place at a university or a college campus. Most school shootings occurred on school grounds involve at least one person being shot.

It is not uncommon for 2 university shootings to occur during the same month. For instance, the Norfolk State University shooting at Norfolk, Virginia during February 27, 2018 and the Mississippi Valley State University shooting incident in Itta Bena, Mississippi that happened on the same day during February 27, 2018. And let’s not forget the Alabama University shootings of March 7, 2018.

In rare cases, a university shooting can last up to 2 days. For instance, read about the Alabama University shootings of March 7, 2018 and March 8, 2018. 2 shootings were reported at Alabama University on the date of March 7, 2018.

University related shootings occur twice each month in the United States alone. Most university shootings take place at college, preparatory schools, and universities. Most university shootings occur in the states of Alabama, Texas, Virginia, and California. Alabama has more university shootings than any other state in the United States. 

History of abuse at Sunmount Developmental Center overlooked.

There have been cases of abuse reported at Sunmount Developmental Center in Tupper Lake, New York that have gone unsolved over the years. Abuse is a contentious issue. In many cases, cases of abuse go unsolved. Sunmount Developmental Center is no exception. It was not all good with parents of the residents that resided in this institution.

Sunmount Developmental Center suffers from a high amount of injury from staff onto residents. Staff often assaults the residents that live here. There is also a high injury rate amongst residents. Many residents aren’t adequately fed. The mentally and physically disabled go through enough on their own.

In the 1970s, a handful of cases regarding abuse appeared in newspapers such as Rochester Times, The Tribune, Buffalo Times, and Watertown Daily Times (Watertown Daily). Parents raised concern about questionable treatment practices on residents.


During an interview with Watertown Daily Times in June 1973, former resident John Boyer recalled the only  marked abuse he saw was when he lining up with his ward mates to get their teeth brushed. “When they'd line us up to brush our teeth. If anybody was talking, the attendant would come down the line slapping us all in the face." 

The routine punishments consisted of "walking the halls" by having the residents walk in a long continual line about the wards until they were quiet. Attendants would get the noisy residents "walking the halls" by having the residents walk in a long line around the wards until they were quiet. This way attendants could assure residents kept quiet.

John Boyer witnessed residents being straight-jacketed to air heaters along ward walls. Slaps to the face occurred on a monthly basis. Dental care was poor and skin infections were rampant.

In another case of abuse, the parents of Pat Burns noticed the body of their own son had questionable scars and bruises when visiting him at Sunmount State School. They began noticing scars on Pat’s neck. No official answers were ever give as to how Pat obtained scars on his neck. How the bruises got there are questionable.  "They told us Pat was not a 'fighter' and other boys picked on him." Mrs. Burns said.

The Burnses photographed their son's neck and complained to the school authorities. After his parents complained, Pat was put into isolation as administration at the school decided this was a solution. He remained in an isolation ward for an extended period of time.

Pat's parents also noticed their son had developed a fear of older men, which led Mrs. Burns to suspect he may have been abused by school attendants. They also noticed he had a fear of stairs. Now 65 years old, Pat Burns is still afraid of stairs and unable to walk down them. 
(Ref: Watertown Daily Times, Page 13, June 1973)

According to Adkins family and from an internal report provided to The Times by the family,
Sunmount Developmental Center resident Eddie Adkins was set upon by several staff members after he grew upset that he was not allowed to go to the bathroom. A melee soon ensued by four state four state employees punching Eddie Adkins while he was sitting on a couch.

A deaf resident nearby told state investigators that he saw four state employees punching Eddie Adkins while he was sitting on a couch. He was so disturbed that he turned his hearing aid off during the melee. The assault took place in October 2011 when the staffers took down a male resident in the dining hall.

Two former employees of the Sunmount Developmental Center were sentenced to jail stemming from an October 2013 cover-up on the date of December 6, 2016. Jessica Rice and Suzanne Decheine assaulted an 18-year-old resident and gave him a head injury, which resulted into a seizure and a concussion. Both Jessica Rice and Suzanne Decheine covered this up from their superiors.

History of Richland School in Pflugerville, Texas almost forgotten.

Richland School is one of the many forgotten schools of Pflugerville, Texas few are aware of and only longtime local citizens know about. The school operated from 1878 to 1945 before being consolidated into Pflugerville ISD. This news article explains the history behind Richland School.


German immigrant Franz Schmidt purchased land in the Pflugerville area in 1867. There was demand for a school and education, but not enough funds to build a schoolhouse. Classes were held at the home of Franz Schmidt prior to the schoolhouse being built. Franz Schmidt donated land for a schoolhouse in 1868.

By 1877, there were enough Germans in the area to establish a school. The schoolhouse would become known as Richland School. The school was named Richland in honor of the rich soil in the region of Pflugerville. All its residents were very receptive of naming the school “Richland School”.

Richland School was built as a one-room schoolhouse structure built in 1878 on the Franz Schmidt farm and was located east of Pflugerville, Texas. Richland School was a 1-12 school that taught students in grades 1 through 12. The first teacher at Richland School was Catherine Margaret Schlitter.

The school became a county public school in 1881 and was operated by Travis County Public Schools until 1908. St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church donated an acre of land, and a new building was built just south of the church on Cameron Road. Richland School was predominantly German at first. Students were not allowed to speak their native languages—only English.


In 1908 is when Richland School consolidated into Highland School as was later consolidated by Plfugerville ISD shortly after. During the 1908-1909 school year is when Pflugerville ISD began having Highland School admitting students from Richland School as the Pflugerville ISD consolidated Richland School in 1908.

Richland School was predominantly German, but it was also mixed with Swedish students and Mexican students. However the school was predominantly German students and Mexican students. There were no African-American students because there was a separate “Negro School” located at Cameron Road and Schmidt Lane called Richland Negro School for African-American students enrolled in grades 1 through 7. The range of students ages were from 7-12.

Pflugerville ISD took full control over Richland School in 1919. In 1920, Pflugerville ISD continued to operate Richland School. Despite Richland School being consolidated into Pflugerville ISD, Richland School continued to operate. By 1921, 100 students attended this school.

In the 1930s, many Pflugerville schools were about to lose certification because there were not enough families to support the tax base. This included Richland School. Clarence Bohls negotiated with Travis County education officials of Travis County Public Schools to keep the rural Pflugerville schools open. Several small schools around Pflugerville were consolidated into the Pflugerville Independent School District as a solution. This allowed Richland School to operate until 1945.

By the 1940s, enrollment was dwindling at Richland School. Its days were numbered. Enrollment was dwindling at rural schools due to statewide consolidation of school districts in Texas. However the district continued to operate the school.

Pflugerville ISD shut down Richland School in 1945. In 1945, Richland School building was purchased by LaRue Ward, and was moved to its current location at the intersection of Fourth Street & Main Street in Pflugerville, Texas. Part of the original building was torn down and the materials were used to build a barn on a local dairy farm.

Several former Pflugerville ISD schoolhouses were moved onto private properties between the 1920s and 1940s. Many Pflugerville ISD schoolhouses were sold in auctions to bidders.


A dedication ceremony was held for Richland School at St. John Parish Hall located outside of Pflugerville, Texas on the date of Saturday, November 12, 2016. Richland School was granted a marker during the dedication ceremony. Travis County Historical Society sponsored the event and called it the Richland School Marker Dedication Ceremony.

Today Richland School is located at 198 4th Street North, Pflugerville, Texas, US 78660. The current owner reported Richland School to be in good condition.

We're already halfway into 2018, and there already have been 24 school shootings where people are hurt or killed for that matter.

On average at least 2 school shootings occur 2 days out of 1 week. That’s 2 days out of a 7 day period. It is not uncommon for 2 school shootings to occur during the same day. For instance, the Alabama University shootings of March 7, 2018, the school shootings in both Jackson, Mississippi and Birmingham, Alabama that occurred on the same day of March 7, 2018, or the shootings at Norfolk, Virginia and Itta Bena, Mississippi that happened on the same day during February 27, 2018,

Most of the school shootings have taken place in states such as Alabama, California, Maryland, Florida, and Texas. Most notable cases of school shootings have taken place in states such as Alabama, California, Florida, Texas.

Human rights activists claim we need more gun control and stricter gun laws to prevent school shootings from happening. Human rights activists push lobbyists for more stricter gun laws. Activists argue if the gun-free zones were eliminated, then gun violence at schools would drop. However people claims flaws in that argument. 

Something has changed and NOT for the better! Things are getting more violent with each passing year.

Sales of ivory to be banned in the United Kingdom.

MSN reports the sale of ivory is to be banned in the United Kingdom. It is part of the UK government plan to help protect elephants as a humanitarian effort towards animal rights. The ban will cover ivory items of any age, not just containing new ivory. This will be the toughest ban in the UK to date.

The number of wild elephants has dropped by almost ⅓rd in the last decade. 20,000 elephants are slaughtered each year for their tusks which are valuable to poachers. Poachers hunt endangered species of elephants for their tusks. The international trade of illegal ivory is $16 billion (USD)/£17 billion (UK pounds) each year.

Legislation will be placed in soon as possible. 88% of UK citizens support the ban. It is unclear when the UK ban will come into effect. However UK citizens hope the ban will com into effect sometime by 2018. Parliament has not come to a conclusion or has made a final decision yet. 

Indigenous Indian history of Peace Point, Alberta, Canada explored.

Peace Point has been occupied by boreal forest and plains over the last 7,000-8,000 years. Boreal forest surrounds the plains of northern Canada. Indigenous peoples were said to have occupied the land over the last 7,000-8,000 years. Beaver Indians were first among the indigenous tribes to have first occupied this land. Boreal forest surrounds the plains of northern Canada.

*(Ref: Mark G. Stevenson, Window on the Past: Archaeological Assessment of the Peace
Point Site, Wood Buffalo National Park, Alberta, 1986)


Peace Point was founded by the Cree Indians in 1750. In the mid-1750s, the Cree tribe was the first among Indian tribes of Canada to obtain access to firearms. The Cree tribe displaced the Beaver Indians to the northwest.

By 1760, the western front of Cree expansion eventually pushed the Danezaa people to the north and west. This led to what was called The Cree-Danezaa conflicts. The Cree-Danezaa conflicts lasted for 2 decades until the smallpox epidemic in 1781 decimated the Cree Indian Tribe in the region. The Cree Tribe displaced the Beaver Indians.

The Cree-Danezaa conflicts were resolved with a peace treaty in 1782, a year after the smallpox epidemic in 1781 wiped out nearly the entire population of the Danezaa people and Cree tribe. The peace treat was ratified in the same year. A peace pipe ceremony was held at Peace Point. Peace Point was the site of a peace agreement between the Cree and Chipewyan in 1784.

Peace River served as a boundary for both indigenous Indian tribes. The river became the boundary with the Danezaa tribe on the left bank (to the north and west) and the Cree tribe on the right bank (the south and east). Peace River served as a cultural boundary between the two indigenous tribes.

Much controversy has arisen over the displacement of aboriginal groups from their traditional territories at the outset of the fur trade during the 18th century. This never has been resolved.


By the beginning of the 21st century, less than 20 people were living in the small settlement of Peace Point. Industry Canada shows that Peace Point had a total population of 15 people in 2001 within the rural area. 15 people were living within 6 dwellings in where they reside. Many still speak the Cree language.

Inhumane conditions recorded to have plagued DC Village Infirmary.

What was intended as a nursing home for the elderly became a dumping ground for patients coming from other closed hospitals in the area located on sprawling hospital campus. The intentions of DC Village Infirmary were good, yet somehow had went sour.

DC Village Infirmary was a nursing home for elderly patients originally, but later became a homeless shelter. By then DC Village Infirmary served as a home for elderly patients and the homeless. Patients of the nursing home were living with bedbug-infested mattresses, mattresses were found on the floor, dormitories had been vehemently overrun by insects, quality of life, and poor food. Some patients even had scabies infections. Insect infestations were spread across the campus. DC Village Infirmary had non-functioning air-conditioning and heating units making it difficult for the patients to function.

DC Village ran illegally for years even with the city trying to shut it down. The city of Washington DC allowed DC Village to run all those years because of the lack of available healthcare options in that area during that time. DC Village Infirmary closed in 2007 because of inhumane conditions.

DC Village Infirmary was a snakepit similar to Willowbrook State School in New York and Pennhurst State School in Pennsylvania. DC Village Infirmary was akin to Willowbrook State School. In fact, DC Village was the “Willowbrook” of Washington DC.

DC Village was located at 1 DC Village Lane, Washington, District of Columbia, US.

Sale of ivory to be banned in the United Kingdom.

MSN reports the sale of ivory is to be banned in the United Kingdom. It is part of the UK government plan to help protect elephants as a humanitarian effort towards animal rights. The ban will cover ivory items of any age, not just containing new ivory. This will be the toughest ban in the UK to date.

The number of wild elephants has dropped by almost ⅓rd in the last decade. 20,000 elephants are slaughtered each year for their tusks which are valuable to poachers. Poachers hunt endangered species of elephants for their tusks. The international trade of illegal ivory is $16 billion (USD)/£17 billion (UK pounds) each year

Legislation will be placed in soon as possible. 88% of UK citizens support the ban. It is unclear when the UK ban will come into effect.

Comparisons between ISIS and the American Left in regards to politics and free speech.

Both ISIS and the American Left are both extremists and are nutjobs. Both have nutjobs in their political parties. Not only are they nutjobs, both ISIS and the American Left are very armed and dangerous. ISIS and the American Left are often very destructive in their protests by destroying property and hurting innocent people often to the point where their own actions are willfully considered as acts of terrorism. ISIS and the American Left often get very destructive during their protest.

Both of these groups excuse the preaching of hatred towards disfavored ethnic groups. Such as hate towards Christianity and Judaism when our constitutional democracies that all stem from Judeo-Christian roots. Both excuse violent attacks by Muslim terrorists citing "Islamophobia" or using Islam as an excuse.

Neither of them believe in free speech of even the tiniest criticism. The partisan line between both parties is blurred. There has been more butchery from leftwing ideologies than from the right wing ideologies. ISIS hates free speech and freedom of speech more than the American Left does. The American Left values free speech and freedom of speech more than ISIS does. The American Left is not as violent towards free speech as ISIS is. Although the news media portray the American Left as being violent against any forms of free speech.
