Lieutenant Quarles Harris Jr. Shrine



I found this shrine in the 2800 block of 12th St NE of Washington, DC.
News and police reports stated that Lieutenant Quarles Harris Jr. of Capitol Heights, MD, aged 24, was shot and killed at close range while getting into his car at about 11 PM on Thursday April 17 2008. Police said he was carrying his car keys, a muffin and a bottle of water when he was shot.

There was an elementary-school-aged boy in the yard where the shrine was located, whacking a bush furiously over & over with a homemade sword while I took the photographs.

Isn't he the one that was being reprimanded for looking into Obama's records at the White House? How interesting that he was killed.

It's interesting that if you google map 2800 NE 12th, DC and then go to "street view" you'll see where the teddy bear shrine has been intentionally blurred.

i thought the statement about the blurred google map was a bit off so i decided to look myself.
hmmm, it is blurred in a circular shape.
why would that position of the pole be blurred?
what was is hidden (besides virutally no media coverage of the event taken place here)
i would investigate myself except that i live in the UK
i wonder what the residence have to say?
why isn't anyone using common sense and asking loads of questions?!

Oh, for cryin' out loud, this bozo was no hero. He wasn't even in the military. HIS FIRST NAME was "Leiutenant" - he wasn't in the military, and his parents couldn't even spell "Lieutenant" properly.

Harris was an identity thief working with someone on the inside at the passport office. Don't believe me? Then check out this article at the very right-wing Washington Times: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/apr/05/passport-official-quits-amid-probes/

If you think this guy was a hero deserving of a shrine, then your bar for what constitutes a hero is set pretty damn low.

It would appear that "Anonymous: from Nov 3, 09 and Sept 16 of this year is on virtually every website or blog that even mentions Harris, doing everything she can to discredit the murdered man. Intersting, isnt it? One question in regard to the psf file...if this was just some low-life thug, why was he questioned by the US Secret Service during the arrest?

Diana - no he is not the one being reprimanded for looking into Obama's records.

anon - 3-January...Simple explanation...police are investigating the murder, while State Department Diplomatic Security, Secret Service and the Postal Inspector are all investigating the fraud case.

When you hear the sound of hooves, think horses, not zebras.

The significance of Harris is that he was caught for smoking marijuana with a young lady who goes unnamed in DC on 03/25/08 @ 9:30pm. Harris was found with credit cards(American Express) in his possession which were flagged as fraudulent. When questioned, Harris had information revealing a breach in passport records conducted on an ongoing basis by employees with access to the State Department's Passport Information Electronic Records System(PIERS). Harris also had information relating to employees who had illegally accessed Obama's passport records, and was cooperating with government officials about this. He was no hero, just another cog in the wheel behind the secrecy of Obama's birth certificate and records which remain sealed. Obama never lived in Connecticut but reportedly has a social security number from that state issued in 1980. Wanna know more? Read Jerome Corsi's book : Where's the Birth Certificate? Whew..........

Hey Earl, get your facts straight! He wasn't smoking weed, he never smoked weed before, and the young lady in the car don't smoke either.

Harris was a key witness for the FBI regarding obama's passport breach. He knew too much. Same as the gay choir director in obama's church. What about that 29 yr. old staffer of obama's that suddenly collapsed and died. Did he also know too much?
