“Afrika Owes Spends Easter @ Church That Bailed Her Out”

35

April 25, 2011 by The ReadyWriter


This heifer knew she had to be front and center Sunday morning at Abyssinian Baptist Church after the church fought for weeks before it was allowed to post her $25,000 bail on Tuesday.

Owes, 17, was wearing an all-white suit with her long hair pulled up, and was acknowledged by the Rev. Calvin Butts as she sat front and center during both of the famed church’s Easter Sunday services.

Owes was locked up on Riker’s Island and being charged with running guns for a street gang, she was also facing charges that included felony, gun charges and conspiracy. But luckily Afrika Owes was able to stand up on Sunday in the Harlem church that bailed her out – she received welcome home cheers from the congregation for her presence.

The church and her home are just a block from where alleged members of the 137th Street Crew peddled crack and terrorized the neighborhood. Owes was among 14 suspects picked up in a Feb. 16 sweep and spent two months in a Rikers Island jail.

I’m sure Africa Owes and her family will forever be indebted to the Rev. Calvin O. Butts and his Abyssinian Baptist Church, for the huge bailout.

      @Mrs,

      I’m all for people getting second chances in life when they show some type of remorse. But when their attorney’s first words after making bail are something to the effect that she is not a snitch, it makes you wonder if she has accepted any wrong doing. The church should have put their money$$ on a different horse. I’m just curious as to why the church decided to back her as I’m sure there are plenty of people in the congregation who could use their backing for other shit. somebody did a huge favor for that bail.

        Maybe her attorney said that in order to keep her ass alive or maybe or maybe he’s just a jerk. This girl now has a chance to redeem her life whether or not she gets jail time. Remember, she still has to go on trial.

        I Cosign,
        This is a young girl did something really stupid, after she got involved with a lowlife. I hope she gets a second chance, and if she messes it up, then she deserves whatever she gets.

        I don’t know if she has any victims. we don’t even know if she actually committed the crimes she’s been accused of. I stand by this girl making her wrong a right and until she’s proven guilty we can’t say she had any victims.

        She has not been accused of a crime yet. I just certainly hope she does not disappoint the church members whose money Butts used.

        Yeah she’s only out on bail, get a grip people. Hope the 25k did not come from the collection plate, because that does not seem quite right.

        Believe it or not, people do get second and sometimes third chances and actually become a credit to society.

      My guess is that the church backed her because she came from very little means, and qualified to attend a prestigious prep school.

      Gia, people are presumed innocent until proven guilty. If she is guilty, then it is a story. But you are not her judges and do not know the circumstances of her arrest, etc. Who knows, the police may just be using her to try to get to others. Wait until the trial before you pass judgment! And stop telling Ms. Bell what she should or shouldn’t WRITE!!!!
