Omarosa speaks on slaying of brother



Published: Tue, October 11, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN

One man murdered in what police are describing as a deadly lovers’ quarrel is related to a nationally known woman of reality television.

Omarosa Manigault is sister to Jack Manigault, 40. He was shot dead on the South Side on Sunday.

Omarosa starred on reality shows such as “The Apprentice,” and issued a statement regarding the weekend murder of her brother.

The statement, issued Monday by Omarosa Manigault’s Washington publicist, contained only a few sentences.

“We thank everyone for their amazing outpouring of support surrounding the tragic death of my brother Jack ... Right now it is an extremely difficult time and we ask that you allow family privacy to grieve and make all necessary arrangements,” the release stated.

Jack Manigault was killed about 1:53 a.m. Sunday at his East Avondale Avenue home.

According to police, Manigault was home with his 34-year-old girlfriend when the woman’s former boyfriend, 22-year-old Marco Cardenas, forced his way into the house past two juveniles and entered a bedroom where Manigault and the woman were sleeping. Several shots were fired, and Manigault ran from the room and collapsed with a gunshot wound to the head.

The woman told police Cardenas told her he knew she was with Manigault, then hit her in the head with the gun before trying to shoot Manigault again. Cardenas was forced out of the door by two juveniles in the house.

Cardenas was arrested a short time later by Youngstown police. While still armed, he declared he would not go to jail but was arrested without further incident.

According to Mahoning County court records, Cardenas is not even halfway through a two-year probation handed down by Judge Maureen Sweeney of Youngstown Municipal Court in December 2010 for felony breaking and entering. His current arrest in Manigault’s murder could mean an automatic one-year prison term on the previous charge.

He also was previously convicted in Youngstown Municipal Court of misdemeanor disorderly conduct in 2008.

Cardenas will be arraigned in Youngstown Municipal Court today.

Manigault also had previous brushes with the law, having been sentenced to two and a half years in prison in 1999 for aggravated assault. He also was convicted of obstructing official business in 2003 and had been arrested for possession of drugs, carrying a concealed weapon and illegal possession of a weapon.

Members of Manigault’s family say he had turned away from all criminal activity — something expressed in the press release from his famous sister.

“My brother was so special to us! We loved him unconditionally and we were so proud of him when he turned his life around and gave his life to God two years ago,” the release said.

Police also are investigating the weekend shooting death of Tequon J. Sharpe, 20, who was shot in the head in his apartment at 59 E. Judson St. The motive for that killing is not known, and no arrests had been made as of Monday.

Family members found Sharpe dead in the apartment with his 10-month-old daughter crawling near the body.

Sharpe was scheduled to appear in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court on a felony charge of illegal possession of a weapon. He also has faced charges of possession of drugs and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle.

Just another day in the hood; more examples of the welfare lifestyle.

Really? I didn't see anything in this article indicating they were on welfare. Remember what they say about assumptions?

In the hood most killings are caused by friends and acquaintances . In this case Jack Manigault was killed by the former lover of Tamicka Riley . Marco Cardenas who was in the circle of friends was not so friendly toward the man who stole the love of his life . Human nature in the hood tends to be on the wild side . Drugs and alcohol loosen what little inhibition that there is . In the hood it is sometimes impossible to avoid your destiny .

When will these fools ever learn that blowing each others heads off is not the solution to their problems ?

Who wins with another in the grave and another in prison for life ?
So many families ruined by all the senseless violence and mayhem.

Mr.Manigault lost his life at the hands of some pork face punk who should have been in prison.
Why was this puke on probation for a felony crime ?
But when judges return scum like this to the streets time and time again this is the expected result.

How many more killings are we going to tolerate by someone on parole or probation ?
This just doesn't make sense.
How many times have we seen this happen ??

These thugs have shown over and over again they do not belong in civil society yet the so called justice system is nothing more than an endless revolving door setting the scum of society free to rob and murder at will.

Glad to see that the same folks are posting the same offensive thoughts, (db, Stan, Losers). Everybody knows what your comments will be before you make them. Is anyone interested in personal growth, or are you satisfied with your smug bigotry? There is nothing in the article that would indicate that anyone involved is a part of the welfare system. May I ask why you assume that they are? Contrary to your uninformed belief, the average welfare recipient is under thirty, female, and white. That is a fact. You don't have to take my word for it, look it up. A life was lost, regardless of the circumstance. According to the article, Manigault was doing nothing wrong, he was sleeping, so why are you so vicious in your comments? There's an old saying that applies here: "It doesn't matter if you get what you want, or what you need, just so you don't get what you deserve!" But for you closet racists, I hope you do!!

I knew Jack somewhat while he was incarcerated. Aside from his felonious choices....I actually found him to be intelligent and talented. He had artistic ability and wrote poetry that I found soulful. If he did turn his life around, I'm glad for him, but sorry to hear about his tragic end.

Cardenas likely has convictions elsewhere. By his own presumed admission he has been involved in the gang lifestyle via the Bloods.

Also, Judge Sweeney let Cardenas off of house arrest.

Unsure if Cardenas was on anything other than probation which is odd since he violated his probation with a 2nd gun charge and didn't receive a punishment but rather a further reduction (as per public records).

Is this a case of a lovers quarrel? It might be for a change. That's probably the second leading cause of murder locally after drugs.

"Contrary to your uninformed belief, the average welfare recipient is under thirty, female, and white. That is a fact. You don't have to take my word for it, look it up."

And your point?

"""It doesn't matter if you get what you want, or what you need, just so you don't get what you deserve!" But for you closet racists, I hope you do!!""

So you say some users comments are racist, Isn't what your trying to say considered racist?? Just asking.....

And your so called facts are not very accurate due to the fact you need to take in the % of a race. Just facts.

Race relationships overall in the United States are pretty alright. People have equal rights, some people on both sides still harbor preservationist mentalities. We have ample multicultural citizens. Lynchings, predatorial violence due to race, etc. are all very low occurrence.

Does anyone consider what the often majority white population is often subject to. Beyond the going to work to be taxed so it can be given to a welfare mooch who neglects her brood of children.

I mean clearly, am I supposed to be thrilled when my children are throwing signs up, talking about drive bys, smoking crack, being pimps, etc.?

Somehow that's a-ok in the black and in some Latino neighborhoods.

White kids aren't learning this stuff from some other crackers. Nearly the entire rap industry is well, you guess it black.

That industry disproportionately is enriched by white folks in the middle class who are heavily marketed to.

Just turn on the radio or go out to a happening club in this region or many others. It's mostly degenerate rubbish party, drinky, humpy, violent muzak.

Best way to stop all the problems is to stop funding these degenerates and their "culture" of death. Far easier to make sure you aren't buying their music, supporting their clubs, buying their clothing than it is to solve/eliminate the welfare culture we like to point at as an open sore normally.

This case shows how race relationships are fine, we have at least one black person, one Latino and one unknown. Sure it ended in violence and death, but it's a domestic gone wild.

Problem here remains, people keep throwing that worn out racism card. The neighborhoods these folks live in are poster examples of the problems, filled with trouble and deadbeats, gangs, 3 kids to 3 daddies who don't participate, crack, heroin, abortion, arsons, murders, robberies, pit bulls, etc.

Real men have the sense to leave these ghettos. The government won't allow you to clean the place up and defend your own and they aren't proactive about zippo.

You have to be totally stupid or totally insane (which then means you are likely on social security and on the dole also) to remain in this sort of South Side neighborhood.

The prematurely and violently deceased as always are remembered as folks with so much charm, so much whit and who turned there life around --- just recently.

To quote: "Don't believe the hype!"

/ Contrary to your uninformed belief, the average welfare recipient is under thirty, female, and white /

Yeah that's true if you look at things only one dimensionally.

That dimension is based sheerly on number of recipients by race.

Now, let logic prevail.

The white population is 72.4% of the population as of 2010.

The black population is 12.6% of the population as of 2010. The black population would be doubled if it wasn't for abortion from 1970 onward.

Food Stamps
34.9% (black) (22.3% over-collection)
42.3% (white)

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Food Program
27.8% (black) (15.2% over-collection)
44.3% (white)

Housing Subsidies
40% (black) (27.4% over collection)
46% (white)

Now how does a population that is 12.6% of the population sponge up so much free money?

How about we regulate / limit free handouts by racial composition hard rules? No race can exceed collection in aggregate more than their population makes up of the total population.

That seems fair right? We all want equality, don't we?

Blacks make up only 15% of the Us population but use 81 % of resource. Blacks commit more racaily motivated crimes than any other race . BLACK on BLack crime is at an all time high -Take it up with the D.O.J. if you can not deal with the truth.

whiney women why not show us the stats of the South Sides crime epidemic- how many people live there - what is the race demo- income demo ? DO TELL US THE NUMBERS of that population using every socail resource - why not included that in your feel good world of make believe - where oj is innocent and false information is just another excuse to cover up for sub human behavior that tax paying citizens are extorted to pay for...Your pitiful example of stats no doubt will offer such factual accounts of the South Sides current population - it will consist of a 70% white population all using welfare programs ...DUHHH -LUSIONS...

Excuse me, but why did whites sit on their rosy rumps while this country was being built on the backs of slave labor?? There is also a dis-proportionate distribution of wealth amongst the very people that this land was stolen from and built by. Say what you will about the South Side, and any other high crime area, the true enemy is poverty, and poverty in minority communities is the direct result of having been denied equal rights for hundreds of years. It is you socially inept closet klansmen who haven't given an honest look at the reasons behind the behavior. I'm not granting ANY race a pass for behaving badly including my own. People are more alike than we are different, yet any time I see an article of this nature, the slurs come out, and the new n-word;"animal,hood rats," etc flies freely. You write as if these people are all high as a kite on welfare system paid for drugs, and can't wait to commit their next crime. I cannot believe that's true. Most people who are forced to live in these sub-standard conditions would give anything to not have to be there. Poverty, a rotten economy, and lack of opportunity keeps them there. I wonder how any of you would react to hundreds of years of opression? I am ashamed for a lot of what white America has done and is still doing in the twenty first century. Face it, there is enough blame to go around. And Oh yes, since you have all the answers, why don't you know it alls go in and straighten out the situation? ??

FYI-telling the truth is not spewing hate- real hate is making excuses for barberic behavior that leaves a person shot to death while sleeping or a 10 month old baby crawling in blood for hours next to a parents dead body. The.KLAN WITH A TAN -tude achieves nothing and only perpetuates the black on black violence that the city of Youngstown has suffered with and done nothing about- for way too long.The real racist would not want to raise awareness to the problem and would be very happy to keep letting blacks kill off blacks...

It took less time to destroy the SouthSide than it took to build it . Mexicans are filling the niche where others wont work .

Today with lots of freedom the cities all over America are being destroyed . Freedom with no responsibility is going to be the legacy .

The English going out and colonizing the world brought a level of prosperity never before imagined . It was Europe that brought about the mechanized age in a big way . Inventions in America brought about the Airplane and the Computer amongst many other inovations .

"Excuse me, but why did whites sit on their rosy rumps while this country was being built on the backs of slave labor??"

See that is your problem, this is 2011 soon to be 2012, and your still living in the past. YOU are not a slave, your parents weren't slaves, and your grandparents weren't slaves. Get OVER it already. Take advantage of all the opportunities for blacks now. Geez....

".........the slurs come out, and the new n-word;"animal,hood rats," etc flies freely."

Really? 99.9% of the time, the articles don't even mention Race. So how can you come up with those as slurs against blacks??? smh at such stupidity.

"You write as if these people are all high as a kite on welfare system paid for drugs, and can't wait to commit their next crime. I cannot believe that's true."

It's true.

"Poverty, a rotten economy, and lack of opportunity keeps them there."

Then how come people get out of the Ghetto and better themselves and make something of themselves??? There are ALOT of success stories. Makes you wonder if they can do it, maybe they need to look at the mirror and instead of blaming everyone and everything, make something of your life. The only thing holding someone back is the person looking back at you in the mirror. Quit blaming and start doing.

/ Most people who are forced to live in these sub-standard conditions would give anything to not have to be there. Poverty, a rotten economy, and lack of opportunity keeps them there. /

This is the over used excuse laden dance step these folks keep juking to.

No one is forcing anyone to live anywhere.

In fact, the mooches milking the social welfare systems have more say over where they live than you are pretending. Ask any landlord in the South Side about the revolving door of problem people they deal with on Section 8, the problems and and destruction the landlord has to deal with and how when the landlord cracks down these fools complain to the program administrators creating more problems for the landlord.

A number of home owners have been forced into either 1. abandoning their paid off property or 2. enrolling it into Section 8 due to the disrepair, crime and racial composition of these neighborhoods in this town. We wonder why perfectly good houses end up a major problem months later.

/ Poverty, a rotten economy, and lack of opportunity keeps them there. /

For a group of people with such a great historical work ethic and for a group that promotes it's propensity towards sports and endurance activities you'd think that nothing would "keep them here". Get walking, march on some other place.

More of the same old excuses.

Poverty, a rotten economy, and lack of opportunity --- hmmm isn't this the same cr@p this group locally has been whining about since 1970?

Not that you noticed, but this country boomed economically several times since 1970's for multiple years at a time.

As always, who's fault is it that your lot in life was a once valuable one where a family lived for generations, but now that your folks rent and destroy? Who's fault is it that the schools are filled with mental health issues and are hostile to learning?

It's the people that make these places up.

When people act as they do in our poster examples and have for at least 25 years on a daily basis, the outcomes are what they are: racial self inflicted genocide.

Until the black community finds a reason to give a damn about itself and stops murdering 50% of it's population with abortion alone, it won't get any better.

A 2006 CDC study shows that the leading cause of death of black males in the 20-24 and 25-34 age group is HOMICIDES. In the 35-44 age group HOMICIDE is the 4th leading cause of death. Another self inflicted leading cause - HIV.

see: http://www.cdc.gov/men/lcod/index.htm

You can't hate yourself to such a degree and make the rest of us believe you "like us". If you murder your children and have no respect for or from your young men, you'd just as quick murder me or my family.

I hear the excuses coming, those poor young girls, a teenage mother in these areas, another generation of poverty, blah and blah.

See how the crackers being racist card really doesn't really fly these days?

Some of you people are unbelievable. I'm glad I left Youngstown in the 70's. I don't believe you guys are still on that black and white bull###. Thugs are thugs and murders are murders race has no bearing on it. Your success depends on what you want out of life and your bring up...Oh I'm Black and a retired peace officer living in California and still have family in Youngstown. I was raised on the South side. Prior to leaving high school I knew I wanted more than Youngstown had to offer so I join the military for 10 years since my mother could not afford to send me to college and the rest is history, I know successful black and white people that came from the same background as me and I know thugs of both races.....Life is about choices. I wish you people get over this race thing and do what you have to do to save your city.
