Kiywuan Perry is escorted on Monday to a Little Rock patrol car headed to the Pulaski County jail after he was arrested in a robbery Sunday night at the El Chico restaurant, 1315 Breckenridge Drive, in which one man was shot and killed.

Two men charged in the murder of an El Chico employee appeared in district court this morning.

Zeckeya Perry, 19, of North Little Rock, and his brother, Kiywuan Perry, 23, of Little Rock, face murder, robbery and theft charges after the Sunday night holdup of the Breckenridge Drive restaurant. Zeckeya also faces possession of a controlled substance charges, after police found cocaine in his possession, according to a police report.

Jesus Herrera, 39, an El Chico employee, was shot in the torso around 9 p.m. Sunday during the robbery and pronounced dead at the scene.

The brothers entered innocent pleas this morning. Judge Alice Lightle denied the brothers bond and set the next court appearance for June 18.

Kenya Smith and Quantez Dobbings also pleaded innocent to the same charges. They were being held without bond as well.

Arrest affidavits said that the shooting of Herrera was planned, with unnamed witnesses claiming that the brothers talked about the robbery and shooting more than a week before both were carried out.

Because in America, unless your name is George Zimmerman, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury of your peers in a court of law.

Why were the "other two" not charged with murder? I thought that those involved in the commission of a felony (armed robbery) in which someone is killed all face felony capital murder charges. I guess I've watched too many Law and Order TV shows. Any of you lawyers out there have an answer?

To Drs01: There are at least three reasons the other two were not charged with what you described as "felony murder". One, neither of the other two was the shooter; two, they may use the statement of one, or both, of them against the other two; three, the prosecutor might wait to charge, depending on whether the shooter pleads out. And there could be other reasons, too.

MIsta, please post the source for your 72% statistic. As far as I can tell, recent data shows that whites make up ~38% of welfare while blacks make up ~35%. Although, I think you have to temper that statistic against the overall US population demographic - 72% of people living in the US are white while ~13% are black.

I see there's a lot of anger in the community about the chronic crime that's being committed by the wave after wave of lightly parented, poorly educated, unemployable black youths that Little Rock is producing. Heck, all of my neighbors have been burglarized, and my car's been busted into, so I get it, too. So what's the solution? Throwing around racist invective probably just makes it worse. After all the kids aren't criminals because they're black but because they're lightly parented (George Will's term, not mine) and poorly educated. The Little Rock School District already spends more money per pupil than any other school district in Arkansas (thanks to the state deseg funding), and its results are, well subpar, with too many dropouts matriculating to Cummins instead of college. Want to keep the social status quo but build more prisons and lock more of them up for longer periods? Spend lots more on schools (longer school days, longer school year, mucho aides and tutors), and on social workers? The schools need a lot of help. Had a friend who taught at a NLR elementary for 20 years, and she said too many students came to school hungry and dirty and in no condition to learn anything. Just food for thought.

Lazybar,

A higher percentage of blacks are poor so I am not surprised. If those statistics make you feel bad, just think of the welfare payments as reparations for all the free labor our ancestors received from their ancestors. When you see the Old State House and other old buildings in Little Rock, just think that they were built by slave labor. Also, whites are more likely to perpetuate great acts of white collar crime. A higher percentage of blacks also die in our wars than whites. You don't see any of the Romney kids serving, now do you? In fact Romney was able to avoid Vietnam by virtue of his status as a Mormon missionary/clergyman. So when you get all upset about blacks taking what you think is more than their fair share of welfare, keep in mind all of the other sacrifices they have made and burdens they have suffered. Being white has its perks. I don't remember any black kids swimming at the country clubs with me in Little Rock when I was a child.

morebeer - The solution is to vote for conservative candidates. The liberal way of creating and fostering a dependence mentality based on making someone feel they are owed something earned by someone else is the root cause of this systemic problem. Sadly, liberals do this for the specific purpose of securing votes for democrats. It all started with urban renewal in the 1960's facilitated by groups like ACORN whose sole mission was to sign "poor" people up for as many government handouts as they possibly could. Conservatives want to empower the individual, liberals want to empower government. It really is that simple.

NoUserName,

Apparently, I am wrong about my belief that a higher percentage of blacks die in our wars than whites. It is a myth perpetuated by the liberal media, no doubt. The perentage figures for Vietnam were a little over 12.4% and for the Iraq/Afghanistan conflicts around 9%. (I will admit when I am wrong.)

However, I am not wrong about the fact that blacks have not been treated equally to whites and that this is not ancient history. I will agree that wome of the welfare handouts have perpetuated the problem instead of helping. However, the right thing to do is to make sure that we treat all people with respect and dignity in the present and to provide them with equal access to educational and job opportunities. I am appalled by some of the language used about our President and blacks in general by some of the people who post here. It is no wonder that many well educated black Arkansans flee the state.

Packman, when someone says it's simple, it's usually simple only to them. I'd refer you to the story in today's newspaper: "Real-estate firm settles job-discrimination suit" Such a story shows that even when blacks do everything right: Go to school, get degrees, apply for jobs, they can't even get an interview if their name looks "black" or they sound "black." Anecdotal evidence, you say: No different than your example of one Hendrix grad underachieving that lets you say most "studies" grads (like say, Hendrix music studies grad Hayes Carll) aren't learning anything useful. Your simple explanations fall right into those recent psychology studies that found conservatives think along very narrow tracks, that their thinking lacks nuance and their beliefs are often not swayed by facts.

I don't believe anything I have communicated could be construed as disagreement with this statement. In fact, not only do I agree, but I generally make the same argument. Jim Crow was in the lifetime of many living blacks. Look, racism has actually affected my family. Recently, I might add. So, no, I'm not blind to the goings on out there, regardless of what Mista may think.

Of course the welfare perpetuates their lifestyle. And not necessarily a race the but a culture thing. It is not a supplement but an entire economy. When you have housing, food and cash supplied to you there is no incentive to actually do anything. If people's situation is detrimental, it is not society's fault, or the government's fault. Does it stimulate the economy? yes. But is it a burden on state and federal budgets? Definitely. Building the middle class is what the programs should focus on.

Just a comment on Welfare and Contraception.
If anyone was really interested in sloving the anger, crime rates and disparity of income between the poor and the middle class, there are real solutions.
1) Stop having children if you cannot afford them. "Afford them" means to be able to actually pay for them yourself without Gov't assistance.
2) Make sure everyone gets a proper education. There should be no choice for whether to stay in school or not, if you want to drop out, you get to go into the servivce of your country.
3) Pregnancy in school is not an acceptable condition. Birth control and all forms of contraception must not only be taught, but also available, free of charge.
Poverty is created by overpopulation and undereducation. There is no debate about this, it is a fact.
Confucius once said: When people are educated, distinction between class disappears.
Education and a lower birth rate are the only answers and solution to this kind of situation.

Mista, for someone that doesn't give much thought to white racism, it would appear that nearly every post (more than a handful) you've made on this site is on that very subject.

Furthermore, as I've already said, including SSI in your welfare calculation really isn't accurate. I'd be happy to stop contributing to my forced SSI tomorrow. When you look at welfare (by itself), food stamps, and the like, it is NOT 70% white. Your 'fact' isn't telling an honest story.

However, as you've lived here for apparently nearly your entire life, I can understand why you are the way you are. I really can. There IS a lot of racism down here - and that is from someone who has only been here 4-5 years. I truly wish there was a way to eradicate it.

Every election the GOP turns to the south and the racist element to win elections. All minority groups are demonized to ensure that Bubba is going to vote for the GOP. They run out all social issues, (that once in power they care nothing about) to stir emotions. It's simple GOP voters believe that the GOP is the WHITE PEOPLES PARTY. There is little diversity in the GOP. Look at all the rallies, look at all the conventions, look at all the speeches given, the crowd is 99% white. The GOP Voter believes that the Domocrats are the Minorities party. The feel like the DEMS dont speak for them. Dont you realize that if you are not in the same class with a Mitt Romney, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingram etc etc. They would not even let you on their block. They dont look at someone in Sercy, AR as their equal. It's the way they did back in the Jim Crow days, the actual Klan Members were toothless-rednecks, doing the dirty work for the elite. They were not equals, but they made them feel like equals by speaking the same language. While they are getting rich, the average GOP voter is still struggling trying to hold down the Double-Wide trailer. All the while thinking Bill O'Reilly is "Looking Out For You" The policies of the GOP has made this country poor and its getting poorer. Yall out here fighting the 1% battles taking away your own rights and jobs to keep 2 boys or 2 women from marrying. Wake UP. Yall GOP voter are Pawns.

NickieD,

I agree with you 100% on the correlation between unwanted pregnancy and poverty. Arkansas is third in the nation in per capita teenage pregnancies. I've been preaching free contraception to Republicans and Democrats alike for 25 years. The Republicans just want abstinence; most of our Democrats are too wishy-washy to take a stand on this controversial issue. Jocelyn Elders is one of the few Arkansans to agree with us on this cause. Instead of trying to tackle poverty, Arkansans are much too concerned about the football team and the fact that the coach has a blonde on his motercycle. Contraception, education, and jobs programs are the solutions to Arkansas' problems. Kudos to the Walton Foundation for funding programs in Phillips County, Arkansas.

As to your punctuation and grammar skills, I'm sure you are a product of an underperforming public school and chose not to overcome. Nevertheless, that is still nobody's fault but your own. And FTR, I would have never mentioned your butchery of the King's English had you not called others "uneducated". If you're going to live in a glass house, don't throw rocks.

Hey Populist if Condoleezza Rice debated Joe Biden she would be charged with abuse to the handicapped (Mentally Challenged) Hell if she debated Obama she would be debating someone that is emotionally challenged.

It's funny to watch people like Mista not realize they are as big a problem with racism in this country as the rednecks riding around with Confederate flags. It's difficult to use peripheral vision with blinders on.

Hey Populist - OK, I deserved that...... Given the choice between, say, a Rosie O'Donnell, Rachel Madcow, Whoopie Goldberg, et al, "self" might be the preferred alternative.

No one can dispute what I am saying. Yall know it's correct. Why do you continue to let the GOP makes fools of you? They dont care NOTHING about you. I dont care if you make 400,000 a year to them it's still not enough, that's weekend Golf money. All the while, you out here fighting their economic battles because they throw you a bone and sling the name Jesus around from time to time. Down a few Blacks and Mexicans and other minorities to satisfy you. It amazes me to no end that people living day to day, week to week, and pay check to pay check vote GOP. Cutting off your nose to spite your face. Yall do it with PRIDE too, that is beyond STUPID.

Packman,

I graduated college in 4 years. Have a nice job that keeps me traveling the world and out of Arkansas. I see the world. Can you say that? Doubt it

And the Ds don't care about you if you make more than about $20k a year - or are in a union. Leaving more or less the bulk of middle America screwed. I'm not sure why most people identify with a party at all. Both parties suck.

Packman,
I see the world. Can you say that? Doubt it (I can, and what I hear in my circle of contacts is that we have made a big mistake, electing a spurius to office.

The only freedoms taken away was by the Bush Admin. and the GOP ran congress with the Patriot Act. What "freedoms" is Obama trying too or have taken away? NONE

I guess after all is said and done, all people who aren't on the dole from the Uncle Sam plantation owner Democrats are stupid. Isn't that what you are saying?

Obama is a Socialist, and Socialism can not stand with the Constitution, those are the freedoms in the Constitution we stand for. Even in a double wide.

What "freedoms" is Obama trying too or have taken away?

I thought you said you were educated?
* NDAA
* Obamacare
* Mandatory Black Boxes In All New Cars From 2015
* freedom to fly without being sexually violated.
* freedom to fill in a “wetland” on one’s own property.
* freedom to videotape the police in public.
* freedom to not have our e-mail and phone conversations monitored
* freedom of American citizens’ natural travel rights
* freedom of American citizens to move their money across international borders
* FAA Reauthorization Act makes it easier for the government to fly unmanned spy planes in U.S. airspace.

I could go on but if you don't know what rights are being taken from you then it's already too late for you. Sad you're so clueless.

Heads Up people in North Little Rock and vicinity...The North Little Rock police department has been working with a small pilotless helicopter (DRONES) since 2008, said Sgt. Pat Thessing. It is currently training with the aircraft(DRONES) over unpopulated areas only, while it awaits FAA rules for use of such aircraft elsewhere. It hopes to use them for surveillance of high-crime neighborhoods, during drug investigations and other work.

Hey Mista - Are you the black kid whose butt I whipped in 10th grade for laying hands on my favorite cheerleader? I heard he never got over getting his arse kicked by a skinny white boy with half the school watching. How else to explain your bitterness against "whitey"?
