CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WRIC) –According to federal court documents, four people have been charged with murder in the death investigation of Capt. Kevin Quick.

Daniel Mathis, Shantai Shelton, Mersadies Shelton and Travis Bell (a.k.a. Kweli Uhuru) are charged with murdering Quick. The capital murder charge could carry a very serious penalty, according to U.S. Attorney Tim Heaphy.

“That is a penalty up to the death sentence in this case that is available for that offense.”

Five others – Gert Wright III, Anthony White, Anthony Stokes, Leslie Casterlow and Devante Bell – are facing gang-related racketeering charges in connection to the case.

Those indicted are all members of a subset of the Bloods street gang known as the 99 Goon Syndicate.

The indictment spells out how members of the gang allegedly carjacked and kidnapped Quick and then drove around to various banks, attempting to withdraw cash from his accounts before murdering him and dumping his body in Goochland County.

The gang is also charged with numerous robberies, shootings and assaults taking place across Central Virginia as well as drug and weapons charges.

Officials from Virginia State Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Waynesboro Police Department held a news conference Friday at the United States Attorney’s Office in Charlottesville to deliver details on the charges the suspects face.

Quick, of Rockfish, was reported missing on Feb. 1, when he failed to arrive at his girlfriend’s residence in Albemarle County. The 45-year-old captain was last seen in Nelson County on Jan. 31, and was found dead in Goochland County on Feb. 6.

Earlier this year in Virginia,Waynesboro police officer Kevin Quick was kidnapped and murdered by four black gang members with affiliation to a national gang from Los Angeles. Quick was driven from ATM to ATM where he was made to withdraw money, then driven into the woods where he was executed as a way for the murderers to move up in the gang.

Nowhere in the national media was this murder of a police officer put to paper. But when a white police officer shot a black man named Michael Brown in Missouri, it made the national news for months. What hypocrites the media has become. Where is the outrage for Quick? Where are the beserk protesters burning and looting in the name of officer Quick?

Where is Eric Holder in his indignant huff? I’ll tell you where he is — he’s sitting on his hands, choosing not to speak up about the tragic death of the officer and the cold-calculating killers. Could the fact that they are black play any part in Holder’s decision?

We all know Holder is not a racist. Just listen to him speak. Even Barack Obama couldn’t stand up and say it could have been him this time. He would never be a cop; however, he would be an enabler for the criminal element.

Where is the white outrage? Where is the hatemonger Al Sharpton?

What if white supremacists, Nazis or the Ku Klux Klan showed up in Virginia and began to riot like the socialist and communist thugs in Ferguson and St. Louis? Would they say the police overacted when they dragged those white thugs away? I don’t think so.

But I guess it is OK to kill a police officer, especially a white one.

If the mainstream media had any courage, they’d put Quick’s story out for consumption right next to the skewed story of the black teen from Ferguson.

But in the eyes of the liberal media elite, when you control the press, you control the message. Quick didn’t deserve what happened to him any more than Brown did, but I don’t hear any wailing for the cop. What a sick country we’ve become.
