Salvation Army Major Fatally Shot in Front of His Children
Foxnews ^ | 12/25/2009 | Staff

Posted on 12/25/2009 4:38:48 PM PST by Red in Blue PA

Arkansas police are searching for two men who shot and killed a Salvation Army major Christmas Eve outside the organization’s community center in North Little Rock as his three young children looked on.

Pulaski County Coroner Garland Camper said two men accosted Philip Wise and his children — ages, 4, 6 and 8 — about 4 p.m. Thursday. He says one man pulled a gun, demanded money and then shot Wise.

Wise's wife, Cindy, also a major in the Salvation Army, was inside the center and called 911.

Does Arkansas have the death penalty?

Sounds like more of that "hopey changey" stuff.

"What's mine is mine and what's yours is mine also".

This is a disgrace.

It takes an EVIL MF to do something like this.
Shoot on sight.

There’s a special place in hell of these two. Instead of killing them instantly, they should be keel-hauled and then drwan and quartered. Should make their families suffer too. Round up the entire family and make them hit the switch.

Hm. Three eyewitnesses, but no description of the perpetrators.

This is what I'm afraid of. Because of all the black on white violence, there's going to be a backlash against African-Americans. AA's have been conditioned by their black overseers to be against the 2nd amendment, to look for their salvation from the Government, and to look down and violently react to anyone who wants to better themselves.

Problem for AA's is, there's more whites than blacks. All it'll take for a revival of Jim Crow in this country, is a charismatic White Supremacist to sweep into office (Democrats from Nathan Bedford Forrest, to Theodore Bilbo, to George Wallace, to Barack Hussein Obama-mmm mmm mmm) have demogogued the race card to political victory. Sad thing is, it won't be the thug gangsta blacks who get their comeuppance...it'll be the hard-working men and women who have to pay for the Obama-lovers thuggery.

This article is better:

“According to police, two black men, both armed and wearing all black, approached Wise. Police didn’t give a description of either man other to say that they were in their late teens or early 20s. The incident happened around 4:15 p.m. and a Pulaski County coroner pronounced Wise dead at the scene later that afternoon.”

“Bradley also said he didn’t believe that the homicide was connected to a robbery of a Salvation Army donation kettle at Sherwood Wal-Mart last week.

In that incident, a black man wearing a black jacket stole the kettle and fled the scene in an older white BMW. Police have obtained photos of that incident.”

Dastardly is way too mild a word for the deed. Did the children escape unscathed except for the horror of the experience?

I don’t believe they are forbidden to carry, but they would obey whatever local regulations are in place.

I would have much rather seen the headline....

Salvation Army Major fatally shoots violent thugs in botched robbery attempt.

Poor kids.

I hope Fox News is not just now reporting about it. At Fox’s site, it doesn’t give the time the article was written, just Dec. 25th. But the man was killed yesterday afternoon around 4 pm. It was on the internet news last night.

Haven’t visited Fox News site today until just now, so maybe they have had the story posted all day.

There have been far more attacks on, and thefts from, the Salvation Army this Christmas season than I can ever remember.

In Italy, someone smashes the face of the Prime Minister and attempts to assault the Pope.

There is a pattern developing.

If you aren't a socialist or a member of one of their protected classes, then watch out.

If you value your life, change your political views.

Does Arkansas have the death penalty?

For innocent bystanders and people serving their God by helping their fellow man, yes. I don't know if they do for criminals that kill people...sad commentary.

“...there’s going to be a backlash against African-Americans.”

This is no more likely to happen than the oft worried about backlashes against Muslims, or the non existent frenzies of pro-life Christians killing abortionists.

African Americans need to backlash against their own scum.

Prayers for this man’s wife and his three young children.

This is a horrifying event. There’s no justice for this kind of depravity.

I have many family members who are Officers (ministers) in The Salvation Army and they all carry handguns during the Christmas season.

I knew Phillip Wise. He was a good good man. He is in heaven right now. My heart breaks for his children and bride.

I heard the people who robbed him were black and that is a tragedy in itself. The chances are great that the general public, through the service on Major Wise and folks like him, probably provided some sort of financial assistance to the perps when they were younger.

This situation reminds me to be thankful for The Salvation Army. They are the real front lines in the war on poverty. We citizens in the US respect the Army and believe in them. They do God's work in our name. I will support them even more than I have before.

As to vengeance, please know that Major Wise would have forgiven the one who murdered him, immediately. I know it is hard to fathom but that is what a Christian does.

It will be rough for a few decades, perhaps even a century. At least until those that have conquered the whites decide there are more interesting things to do besides killing us for amusement. As the Gaul said to the Roman: “Woe to the conquered!”
