(Sad story): Manhunt for Killers of Salvation Army Major
Fox News ^ | December 27, 2009 | N/A

Posted on 12/27/2009 5:04:18 PM PST by Publius804

Arkansas police continue to search for two suspects in the shooting death of a Salvation Army major on Christmas Eve.

Salvation Army Major Philip Wise was killed outside the organization’s community center in North Little Rock, Arkansas as his three young children looked on.

Wise had worked for the Salvation Army for 16 years and had been at the Little Rock location for 3 years.

"He was so important to that community," said North Little Rock Police Department spokesman Terry Kuykendahl told FoxNews.com.

"This has been a tremendous blow to (them)."

Thanks to private citizens' donations, police are offering a reward of up to $3,000 for any information leading to the suspects' arrests.

The suspects are described as two African-American males and are believed to be 'armed with handguns.' Police are following up on leads, but are asking the public to help them by contacting them with any bit of information they may have.

Police said the suspects were last seen running on foot towards a government-funding housing community in the area.

Too many damn animals in this world, I hope they catch these creeps and they are executed or live the rest of their lives where they belong, in prison.

FUBO.

Where's our racial harmony Kenyan-American on THIS one?

No "Rush to Kill" like the cops' "Rush to Judgment" in Boston, eh?

And for that matter, what's the good Harvard professor's take on this?

Or the anti-lacrosse-team lynch mob from Duke University?

This man is dead, his children orphans, his wife alone. And probably without a trust fund: the Salvation Army doesn't pay very much.

Where are the race-baiting vermin now?

Sickening they’re still on the loose.

Last seen running towards government housing. But of course.

Terrible.

How did they know they were African-Americans? Maybe they were just Africans, like from Nigeria, or African-Canadians?

I am sure there are people who know or strongly suspect who did this heinous crime, murdering someone who has made a career of helping. They should either dispose of the vermin in their own way, or turn them in to the authorities so the trial lawyers can make a little money off the case before the malefactors are executed. Heck, if they are not caught, Jesse and Al won’t have a chance to intervene for fun or profit; but then, on the other hand, the difference between this murder and some hate crime won’t need no “splainin’.”

These animals are so stupid and evil they murder someone who has given his life to helping others.

But, of course. Give them more food stamps & a better government house and they wouldn’t have killed a father, who was working on behalf of the poor, in front of his three children, age 4, 6 & 8 and his wife, who was also working on behalf of the poor. /s

Mr. Wise and his family are charitable beyond his death.

The article goes on to state that donations made in his name will go toward a music program at the organization’s summer camp.

We need to find these scumbags, and then round up their families and make them throw the switch on these cockroaches.

and, apparently, not ONE “snitch” in the community to which he was so important. Bottom feeders.

That 'community' should be the target of an air strike.

That's just insulting.

I'll make it a $10,000 reward for two of each of their fingers, or a toe and an ear.


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

Black males in government housing. That says it all.

Of course, it’s what Obama wants for all of us, and I suspect this will be so common in the future it won’t even be reported.

That said, prayers for this man and his family. It’s just hard to imagine that these creeps would do this. But just last week, our pastor, wearing his clericals, was robbed at knifepoint by a young thug who threatened to kill him. So I’d say the thug class is feeling emboldened.

Shoot them in the back of the head and send the bullet bill to the family?

If Holder tries to disarm America in the name of public safety, he should first go into the inner cities and disarm the armed criminals first. Of course, if that was successful he wouldn’t have to disarm the rest of us. Maybe the do-no-good Congress should pass a law that anyone convicted of a gun crime gets an automatic life sentence with hard labor. That might discourage thugs like this a little.

I read the earlier thread on this and was appalled; I used to live not far from there. The location of this Salvation Army is deep in the hood, I recall some kind of story on this quite awhile back. It seemed to be in a location that made no sense. If these suspects were running “toward subsidized housing,” that’s all that’s in the area. There were some earlier remarks about drug dealers, I suspect the perps were either dealers or looking for money for dealers.

No worries, someone else will get popped on another issue and will give these two up for leniency.

Or the snitch money is not high enough yet.

If these scumbags didn’t have mouths, then crimes would be harder to solve. They all talk to someone uninvolved and it does them in eventually.

“The suspects are described as two African-American males”

They probably are males, but as for the “African” part - I don’t think either of them has ever gone near Africa.

Please! I like animals! These creatures are some form of anti-life. And their litter-mates are protecting them.
