JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

A robber was shot earlier Saturday evening when he held up a barber at gunpoint in Jackson.

Jackson Police were on the scene around 5:30 at Elegante Coiffures Beauty and Barber Salon on Medgar Evers near the intersection of Rutledge Avenue.

Witnesses told WLBT that a barber stepped outside to go to his vehicle when he was suddenly approached by a person with a gun.

Police say the 17-year old took money from the barber and attempted to take his vehicle.

Another barber in the business saw the two struggling. That co-worker then retrieved a weapon and opened fire striking the suspected robber in the face. He then ran across the street and hid in the woods.

This isn’t “just a barber”. It was Elegante Coiffures. Guess the French are stirring up trouble now.

The apartments around my house are slowly all turning in to Section 8. When I went to the convenience store earlier, I had just gotten into my truck when a stereotype retarded young black thug walked by; pants down about mid-thigh, boxers hanging out, hat on sideways. Without even thinking I said “Trayvon”! Even though I had my windows up I think he heard me because he eyeballed me for a couple of seconds until he realized I was eyeballing him right back. Kinda funny.

Just wondering, why did the co-worker run across the street and hide in the woods?

Barbers are such racists. Everybody knows that already. That’s why this isn’t newsworthy.

The movie Barbershop had Cedric the Entertainer and Ice Cube, so they can’t be racist. Haven’t they both been to the White House?

Did the co-worker or the barber or robber run across the street and hide in the woods? Do Journalists attend some type of school before they don the mantel of “Journalist”?

Whenever I see “Jackson, MS,” and “shot” I always pray it isn’t one of my students.

It could be worse:

That co-worker who owns a guard dog then retrieved a weapon and opened fire striking the suspected robber in the face. He then ran across the street and hid in the woods.

You might have something there. If we started using the term Trayvon for any recently terminated, for cause, young Black male, it might make a point.

Usage: The kid trayvoned himself when he tried to rob the 711 and was shot.

No “robbin” going on, just redistribution of wealth. Clearly the child was only getting what is owed him.
