Youngstown State Fraternity Shooting Leaves One Dead, 11 Wounded
ABC News ^ | February 7, 2011 | DEAN SCHABNER

Posted on 02/07/2011 4:31:40 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

One person is dead and 11 were wounded after someone opened fire at a Youngstown State University fraternity house, police said.

The shooting happened early today, and Youngstown, Ohio, police said they are still investigating.

"It was a frat party that was going on," Youngstown Police Department Lt. Franklin Palmer said.

Police arrested two men this afternoon, but did not immediately release their names, saying they were continuing to investigate.

The men were each charged with one count of aggravated murder, 11 counts of aggravated assault and one count of shooting into a house.

The two suspects got into an argument at the party, then left and came back and started shooting outside the house, Youngstown police Chief Jimmy Hughes said, according to The Associated Press.

As soon as I heard this story I thought to myself, “I bet that was a black fraternity.”

It was.

Gee, not that it matters of course.

Guns? Legally purchased?
Somehow I doubt it.

When I read the article, I noted that the fraternity was not identified—Almost like when you read a negative story about a politician and his party isn’t identified.

Notably, the shooting occurred at a private residence; not a fraternity house in the conventional sense. The MSM had that wrong all day yesterday.

Agenda?

"It was a frat party that was going on,"

Enough said.

That’s what I thought too.

Of course hazing deaths tend to occur at white fraternities.

But this “leave a party mad and come back with a gun” is something that’s happened half a dozen times recently in my state, and the shooter is always black, and he usually kills someone who hadn’t been involved in the original dispute.

What’s up with his tongue? There’s two photos there with his tongue sticking out. Is this some sort of fraternity thing?

The dragstip near my house closed after a shooting at a Juneteenth event. Someone backed out on a bet. Nothing like that ever happened with the usual weekend crowds.

Black on Black violence stats are through the roof yet the silence from the NAACP is deafening.

Whenever someone like Bill Cosby brings up this fact, he gets shouted down as a Tom.

Sad.

Of course that's what happens. A friend and I were at an indoor range and decided we'd try out the "gangsta grip". Both of use could barely hit the paper until we turned the weapon upright. ...Blam...dead center.
It was then that I realized why so many "innocent" bystanders get capped when the gangsta grip is employed.

Because the NAACP has absolutely nothing to do with the advancement of "colored people".

I heard the story on the radio (with of course no mention of the fraternity name). When I heard it reported without the name, I was sure it was a black fraternity. It's nice that the media is so consistent, so we know when no mention of the criminals' race is made during a violent crime the criminal is black (or occasionally hispanic), and when no mention is made of an organizaiton involved in a violent crime it will be a black organizaiton.

I really like the radio news descriptions of criminals like "male about 6 feet tall wearing grey hooded sweatshirt" Just like race weren't a distinguishing characteristic. In Atlanta if a violent crime is committed you can rest assured that 90% of the time the criminal will be black and the remainder will almost always be hispanic. In fact about a year ago one of the morning radio news anchors on wsb asked the reporter why race wasn't being reported - the beating around the bush was a joy to listen to. I assume he got severely reprimanded, since he's never asked that question again.

Youngstown is literally in my back yard. This was NOT a frat house. It was a private home near the university where a party took place.

It happened with my fraternity at App State. The victim and the perp were white. We had people show up to our house with guns. Luckily, we had guys from eastern NC who weren’t scared of guns and made them go away.

"They will be brought to justice and again, in my opinion, are not fit to exist in a civilized society," he said.
Civilized? Take a look at any city in America, take a look where ever you find
the "Amish" way of life, and I dare you to find anything "civil" about it.

Black on Black violence stats are through the roof yet the silence from the NAACP is deafening.

If somebody tries to do something about it, they will complain it is
"racist" to want to reduce the murder and mayhem in a community.

Like what happened to the Philadelphia Inquirer when they
published a photo spread of the "most wanted" in Philly -
murderers and such.

Out of the fifty or more, maybe one was white, two or three Asian,
a dozen Hispanic, and the rest black. The paper was forced to
apologize for trying to help make the city and environs a safer place.

After slogging through all the pc-bs, the frat was OPP. Jesse
Jackson is a "brother". Has he weighed in on the blood shed?

An FR keyword search on "Jackson" came up with a 1/18 article.

Probably hasn't yet figured out a way to profit from this senseless
violence yet.
