together for 65 years... only to be parted after home invader beat wife to death

Full title: Couple met and married within a month and stayed together for 65 years... only to be parted after home invader beat wife to death

An 85-year-old woman was sexually assaulted and battered to death by a home invader who also shot her 90-year-old husband in the face with a BB gun. Nancy and Bob Strait, who had celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in December, were discovered by their daughter at their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Both the pensioners were rushed to hospital where Mrs Strait, who was nearly blind, died from her injuries.

Mr Strait, who served in the 101st Airborne Division in World War II, suffered a broken jaw, broken ribs and severe bleeding. He is in a serious condition in hospital. Police have arrested 20-year-old Tyrone Dale David Woodfork in connection with the case.

The home invaders made off with their Dodge Neon, a television and $200. Woodfork was later found hiding in a nearby house after a witness spotted the stolen vehicle being driven down the road.

As suspected.

In other news the local radio here in the African Peoples' Democracy of Atlanta was reporting that black children received a higher proportion of suspensions from school than other races. The phony outrage was quick to come from the usual suspects. No one seemd to think of the possibility that black chillun COMMIT DISPROPORTIONATELY MORE SERIOUS OFFENSES THAN OTHER RACES. Wonder whay the so-called commentators didn't mention that.

If you're old you need more firearms kept handy than when you're young = too bad the Straits didn't have a handy gun.

“Police have arrested 20-year-old Tyrone Dale David Woodfork in connection with the case.”

Unfortunately he will rot away for about ten years before cashed in by the state. Before the days of cell phone cameras, bleeding heart libs and race based activists out there, he may have had an accident on the way to the lock up.

This pile of animal offal deserves the death penalty.

He needs to be staked out in a windowless room and the 90 year old husband given a claw hammer and fifteen minutes alone with him without any witnesses.

I went to school with animals like this and learned at a very early age that certain segments of our society only understand violence. You simply can’t reason with them. Extreme, rapid violence is the only thing that reaches them.

As an armed adult I will gladly offer them their form of communication if confronted.

The term, “savages” is far more accurate than you think my FRiend...

Some people think that I have a rather negative and cynical view of people and human nature.

Many years ago, I encountered an elderly widow who lived alone in a modest home. One morning her neighbor noticed that her back porch light was on past the time she usually turned it off and went to check. When he saw the back door ajar, he called her niece and the police.

They finally found the woman at the bottom of a closet, alive but badly beaten. A pile of bedding was thrown on top of her and a dresser pulled in front of the closet door so it could not be opened from inside.

She lived but with severe brain damage, could not speak, did not recognize her niece, etc.

This little old lady was perfectly harmless, just trying to live out the rest of her life in peace. She had nothing really worth stealing.

When you really grasp that there are people, to use the term loosely, who are capable of brutalizing the fragile and helpless such as the elderly and babies and young children, well, then, you don't put a lot of faith and trust in "human nature."

There will be no outrage. Only a couple of crackers got murdered. The perps should have been shot on sight, that is the only fitting justice they deserved. Just another example of Holder’s peeps and or domestic terrorists preying on White Americans. America, sure tolerates alot of crap from just 13% of the population.

Before I got to the name of the perp, I knew what race he was. When I read the name “Tyrone” I would have bet the farm he was one of Holder’s people.

Put the rabid dog into a cage with other rabid dogs and let the outcome take care of itself.

"When you really grasp that there are people, to use the term loosely, who are capable of brutalizing the fragile and helpless..."

The general public has no idea of what walks free among them, and comes into contact with them and their children on a daily basis. If they did, capital punishment would be instituted nation wide. As a colleague of mine once said during the course of a particularly gruesome homicide investigation, "You don't have to be particularly religious to believe there's something evil out there..."

As our Lord Jesus Christ said about Judas: “It would have been better that that man should have never been born.”

I just heard a message about godly fathers and drop out dads and the consequences of both. I think of 1 Timothy 5:8:

“But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.”

I don’t understand why there is no mention of the fact that Tyrone is actually a good boy who was turning his life around. He only fell in with the wrong crowd. The photo is really unflattering. I U.S. paper would find a graduation photo of him in cap and gown. Where is the U.S. coverage?

It made the local news.

I try not to disclose my exact location in public forum 'cause there could be somebody lurking out there who doesn't really need to know... but let's say that I live in the coverage area of this TV station:

http://www.newson6.com/story/17170320/neighbors-of-beaten-elderly-couple-take-safety-measures

"Northeastern Oklahoma" is a nice place to live with the best of rural and urban life. Unfortunately the worst also.

Around here, most clear-thinking people have at least one gun in the house "just in case", especially veterans of Mr. Strait's generation. I don't know, I've only read the news reports, but I'm going to assume that either Mr. Strait had a weapon in the house but wasn't able to get to it, or it's possible that he had gotten frail enough that he wasn't able to use a weapon - he and his wife had been convinced by their family to move into an assisted living center.

The move was planned for the day after Mrs. Strait was murdered.

Oh yeah one other thing... the comments section at the Channel 6 website have been scrubbed... there were lots of uh, candid remarks about the uh, societal influences that produce this kind of stuff...

The comment that I would add is that this white couple had lived in north Tulsa minding their own business for 65 years without trouble from anyone - and then this punk comes along. I hope he's not related to anyone that I might know.

Yes, because it doesn't fit their agenda to show blacks as poor downtrodden victims and whites as evil oppressors living on the work of the blacks. (that model kind of ended in 1864, but the media is trying to keep it alive) "Only the news that fits will print." or something like that.

At this moment (1125am ET) Laura Ingraham is talking about the Zimmerman case and comparing it to the non-coverage of the white kid doused in gasoline and lit on fire in Kansas City. KC is also known for “the knockout game,” which also has received zero MSM media coverage.

I wish Laura would mention these other cases.

There’s a reason why the majority of prison populations are “minorities.” Even though they’r sentenced more leniently than whites, they commit a disproportionate number of crimes. But of course reporting that and rampant welfare fraud, etc. doesn’t fit the MSM agenda

This is one of the most heartbreaking crimes I’ve seen in some time. These were very good people and Mr. Strait made the D-DAY landing with the 101st Division. To think that this punk and possible others murdered this lady is the lowest form of animal behavior. If not for men like Mr. Strait that punk would have probably been shot years ago. Let’s hope they get the others involved in this and hang all of them.

This vicious, murderous criminal pattern, with some variation, can be found on nearly a weekly basis at this point.

Yet still we’ve got the Amish jokes, now the Canadian jokes.

The perpetrator is a negro, a black man, an african american.

Can you type those words without shaking uncontrollably?

The so called ‘press’ doesn’t care about his story because it doesn’t push the liberal agenda. Here’s proof of media bias and hatred for conservatives - by elite New York Times journalists.

Elite journalists looking down on conservatives when they think no one’s watching - laughing at Rick Perry too.
