SARASOTA HERALAD TRIBUNE The Courts neighborhood battered by slayings. Life in The Courts of Newtown is not easily defined. The scene of a horrible crime, it is also a neat and tidy community of homes for many. By Chris Anderson, Published: Sunday, March 18, 2012 at 5:51 p.m.

SARASOTA – A Winnie-the-Pooh blanket sways on a clothesline. The streetlights above have bulletproof glass. This is where Cassandra Perez lives, in The Courts of Newtown. Cassandra stands on her cement-slab front porch, one of the few beautified by plants, and looks out as children ride bikes in the street. She is only 14, but as tough as the terrain the outsiders fear.

“It’s not a great place for kids to live, because there’s too much drugs, fights and shootings,” she says. “It’s bad, and I don’t know why kids have guns.” About 50 yards to the right of her khaki-colored apartment, just past the sandlot where kids play football, is the back door of 1710 Bethune Court.

This is where Shawn Tyson used to live. The four-bedroom, one-bath apartment is part of the 100-unit complex for low-income residents. The complex is where police say Tyson shot and killed British tourists James Cooper and James Kouzaris last April. Tyson’s first-degree murder trial starts today, his 17th birthday, MORE FROM THIS FAIRY TALE CLICK HERE.

Herald Tribune writer Chris Anderson continues to try and sanitize violence torn Newtown while he belittles the British Press for putting such a harsh spotlight on Newtown were British tourists James Cooper and James Kouzaris were gunned down on April 16th in the ghetto. See Sarasota Herald Tribune Reporter Christopher O’Donnell Trashes British Media like the Daily Telegraph, Says Claim of Shawn Tyson as Gang Member False. 

SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE March 18th, 2012, Tyson trial fodder for British tabloids. By Christopher O’Donnell Staff Reporter….’Gunned down in the Ghetto” screamed one British tabloid headline following the slaying last year of British tourists James Cooper and James Kouzaris in Sarasota. In the aftermath of the murders of the two British tourists, less credible British media ran stories based on speculation that were untrue or unproven, and had reporters here scratching their heads in exasperation. The Daily Express reported that the two tourists were on a “ghetto tour.” Other newspapers reported that Tyson, the 16-year-old charged in the murders, was a gang member, a claim that police reports have not verified. Even the respected The Daily Telegraph ran a story under the headline “Britons shot in Florida killed as part of ‘gang initiation.’” Reading the story, it is clear the headline was pure speculation.

If Herald Tribune writer Chris Anderson ever really visited Newtown for his recent stories on Newtown then you can bet it was early in the morning before gang members woke up from their all night drug induced partying.  Herald Tribune writer Chris Anderson needs to go back to Newtown and visit the exact same places at about 1:00 a.m, any night of the week and get the real story on Newtown.

ATTENTION BRITISH MEDIA GHETTO ALERT…..Just today the Sarasota Herald Tribune glossed over a violent Newtown home invasion; “Sarasota brothers arrested in shooting case” Two brothers are accused of participating in a Friday night shooting incident. Trae Ward, 20, faces charges of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. Jeremy Ward, 15, faces a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm. On Friday night, a resident in the 3100 block of King Boulevard told sheriff’s deputies that Jeremy Ward came to his home with a rifle and threatened to kill his son. He claimed he wrestled the weapon away from the teen. Trae Ward is accused of approaching and firing a handgun five times into the air. He and his brother then fled with the rifle and the handgun, deputies reported. Deputies say they later arrested the brothers, who reside in the 2400 block of Booker Avenue….

King Boulevard” is Martin Luther King Blvd in the heart of Newtown and Trae Ward lives at 2515 24th Street Sarasota Fl 34234 as per his booking info, and oh yeah, he was wearing a mask during the home invasion, his home address IS in the heart of Newtown, see map CLICK HERE.  The Herald Tribune is even going so far as to change the names of the streets to protect the guilty, “LIFE IN THE HOOD”.  What if Trae Ward showed up at someone’s front door on Bird Key with a rifle and wearing a mask.
