Two teenagers were arrested Wednesday, after a deadly mass shooting left four dead and 32 people injured.

The shooting happened at Mahogany Masterpiece dance studio in Dadeville, Alabama, on Saturday. Four days later, Alabama authorities announced the names of the two teenagers being charged, brothers Ty Reik McCullough, 17, and Travis McCullough, 16. The teens are being charged with four counts of reckless murder. Special Agents with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) arrested the teens, according to reports from Fox News. 

“These individuals have been charged after a complex and thorough investigation was conducted with assistance from a multitude of law enforcement agencies,” the ALEA said in a statement. As the investigation continues no further information, “is available” according to the statement made by the ALEA.

In a report from Fox News, it was said that “gunfire broke out Saturday at a birthday party for Alexis Dowdell, which was being held at the dance studio just off the town’s courthouse square. Witnesses have said multiple people began shooting some time after Dowdell’s mother paused the celebration to ask people with guns to leave.”

The lives lost in this horrific shooting were, Phil Dowdell, the brother of the birthday girl, Dadeville High senior Shaunkivia Nicole Smith, 17, 2022 Opelika High School graduate Marsiah Emmanuel Collins, 19, and 2018 Dadeville High graduate Corbin Dahmontrey Holston, 23.

The whereabouts of where the two are being jailed is not known as of now. Sgt. Jeremy J. Burkett of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, wouldn’t disclose the location of where the teens are being held.

Sgt. Burkett said, “We can’t get into a motive right now, because that would be part of an ongoing investigation.”

Moreover, during the months of March and September the grand jurors of Tallapoosa county meet but, District attorney Mike Segrest said he would recall them before September to indict the teens. “If we can establish the facts, we will be asking our grand jury to come back in.”

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
