Waiting On Justice In Barnes Teen Killing: TPC Not Done Championing The Pretty Little Girl’s Murder

It may seem as if the attention is no longer focused on who killed the Honors Student from Monroe, N.C. in Baltimore back in 2010. The media coverage has been minimal, readers following the child’s tragic story have dwindled, and now with accused murderer Michael Johnson preparing for an August 13 court date, it’s fitting that I publicly reiterate just how senseless, heartless, and horrific of an ordeal that this entire case has been for those who knew and loved Phylicia Simone Barnes.  None of us who have closely watched this case could ever even began to image the pain and suffering that the late child’s parents have endured. The lost of such a promising child was exacerbated by attacks from the public, questioning their judgement, critiquing their comments within the media, and spewing other ungodly like innuendo at the child’s parents as if they had murdered their own child themselves. Through it all the Mustafa Family fought back, taking to the airwaves to dispell untruths and rumors that they say were started by their daughters father’s side of the family. Unfortunately, what should have been a united front from both sides of the Barnes family, spilled over into an ugly public debacle of finger-pointing, and the rehashing of old wombs that was depicted in a gut wrenching and heartfelt commentary be the late teen’s mother, Janice Mustafa. I also had to withstand and endure attacks from the public as well as the Barnes Baltimore family. Despite the constant criticism from all sides of the horrific crime, I stand firmly behind my decision to cover this murder case, and for my interviews that I have conducted with parties closely associated with this case. When young black kids go missing, they seldom gain National Media attention like children from white communities. The African-American community has been depended upon the media, police authorities, and others outside of our community to resolve issues related to crime, social discord, and our children for far to long. Many of the criminal cases that occur in black neighborhoods could potentially be resolved within the first few days if citizens within many of these crime plagued communities would simply take a stand and provide the necessary information that would enable police to obtain an arrest. The burden of guilt also lay squarely on the shoulders of black people who cower in their homes after having witnessed crime or are in the know of pertinent information that could bring criminals to justice. The Barnes teen killing is textbook related to my argument of non-involvement from the black community. The volume of people who frequented Deena Barnes’ apartment coupled with all of their accounts of not having any information at all about what happened to Phylicia Barnes, is descriptive of an apathetic standard which permeates the African-American community as it relates to crime, even heinous crimes such as this, in which one of black people’s brightest hopes has fallen to the epidemic of violent culture within many urban cities across America, and their silence perpetuates a slave mentality that has reigned over our people which dates back to the worst social period in this country’s history when our ancestors lived in bondage on these shores. Yet, many from the public have deemed it necessary to attack Janice Sallis-Mustafa for allowing her child to visit her half-siblings in Baltimore. These perspectives derive from people who for what ever reason have completely ignored the fact that the mother was lied too. I believe Janice when she says that she spoke with Deena Barnes at length on the guidance she expected while her precious daughter was under her care. The fact that Phylicia herself hid certain details on the kinds of activities she was allowed to engage in, clearly shows that the mother wouldn’t have allowed her to return for future visits had she been aware, and that she was also a proactive mom who cared about the well-being of her child. Despite who may ultimately be held accountable for the child’s murder, the lies that were told to Janice Mustafa were critical in the mother’s decision to grant Phylicia permission to travel there in the first place. Also. I must remind people tha another child dropped a bomb shell on the mother prior to her traveling to Baltimore after learning her daughter had gone missing. That kid told Janice that Phylicia had been allowed to engage in drug and alcohol usage during her trips to that city. Later on TPC obtained exclusive images that showed males who frequented Deena Barnes apartment engaging in smoking marijuana and drinking vodka, which is exactly what the child had previously told Phylicia’s mother. The child had never been to Baltimore, and it is highly coincidental that she could describe with exact detail what was actually going on in that apartment. It doesn’t take rocket science to conclude that the child spoke truth, that Phylicia was also allowed to participate in such culture while visiting there, and that Janice Mustafa was in fact lied to by Deena Barnes. The lies, neglect, and poor guidance that aided the child’s killers to take her life is not only disgusting, but it remains ground zero in what happened to this beautiful little girl. As this case heads to court, these underlining facts will continue to be on the minds of people within the public who see clearly through the cloud of deception, and will always rightfully hold the child’s older half-sister accountable for the death of her baby sister. I have only  just begun to start and I’m not done yet!
