"A former college volleyball player was shot to death in St. Louis only hours before she was scheduled to play in an alumni volleyball game.

23-year-old Megan Boken, a former all-state volleyball player from Illinois, was shot while sitting inside a white Volkswagen outside the apartment complex she used to live in Saturday afternoon, Fox2Now reports. Boken was in St. Louis to visit her alma mater, St. Louis University, and play in the annual alumni game...... ....Investigators say they believe the suspect is an African-American male in his twenties, and say this type of crime is "highly unusual" in that area of town, Fox2Now reports. Though there was initial speculation Boken may have known her attacker, her family says there is no evidence of that."

I don't think that categorizing as "highly unusual" an unprovoked, random murder of a white person by a "son of Obama" would be correct. I'm under the impression that such crimes are an everyday occurrence, tut that's just me, I guess.

Don’t worry.

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson will be zooming in any minute now demanding justice for the victim as this attack appears to be racial /sarc

And then they wonder why white people are becomming more and more distrusting of black people. We try to not be racist but when they act like animals what choice do we have?

Indeed a quick Google search shows Megan to be a pretty blonde young woman.

Shot in her car with no concept or inkling of risk.

It’s interesting that the closest that the University can come to describing what happened to her is to say that she “passed away”. Oh our great politically correct institutions of higher learning.

The only thing unusual about this case is that she wasn’t raped first.

How could the “Investigators” determine that the suspect is African-American? There are many countries where the makeup of the people is partially black that do not hail from Africa. They are also assuming that this suspect is American. How could they know that? Did he drop his BC at the crime scene?
The proper non PC headline should read - Suspect is described as black male with unknown citizen status. Victim is described as female white American. (assuming that she is a citizen of the United States).
My point is that not every black person within the borders of this country is either African or American. The same of course can be said of every racial group - black, white, red, brown, yellow, etc.
It is NOT racist to tell the truth is it?

It’s only highly unusual in the official statistics. St Louis officials are well known for this. If this hadn’t hit the news, it would have been classified as an “incident”.

was shot while sitting inside a white Volkswagen
A real journalist would have included the interior's color too.

No doubt Rev’n Al and Jessuh Jagoff are sending their condolences and taking to the streets in outrage at this clear example of race hate.

She has plenty of company.

Investigators say they believe the suspect is an African-American male in his twenties, and say this type of crime is "highly unusual" in that...the police and media are releasing the perp's race and the Black on White characteristic of this crime in reports and text.

I recall a Liberal on some talkfest show referring to Nelson Mandela as an “African-American”.

Using “passed away” in the university press release is ridiculous. She was murdered. She didn’t “pass away.”

There is a post on a SLU message board that the guy had been texting her and bothering her the night before. If that’s true, the killer did know her.

I guess “highly unusual” has now joined “unexpected” as the preferred way of describing the tragic fall out from this “administration”...
