Community leaders call shooting spree a hate crime

TULSA - Community leaders in North Tulsa are calling Friday morning's shooting spree a hate crime.

The shooting spree left three people dead and two others seriously wounded.

Police believe the victims were targeted at random.

Authorities are focused on finding a white man driving a white pickup truck, who was seen in the area at the time of the shootings.

"If you systematically target black folks and that's all you shot, and you come to the north side of town and you're a white male, and we know he was a white male, then what is one left to believe?" said Rev. Warren Blakney, president of the Tulsa chapter of the NAACP.

"This is an entire community that is being attacked right now," added Pastor Millard Jones.

First, this is a horrible crime and the person responsible must be found. Second, this is frightening, because of the increasing tension between blacks and whites in this country. President Obama is stoking this fire.

The article says that blacks ought to be wary this weekend, but I think it is whites who ought to be afraid. This incident will be an excuse for attacks on whites, such as one on the man in Florida and the elderly man murdered in OKC in the last week.

I believe that the race war has already started, and that Obama couldn’t be happier about it. However, I don’t think he will like how it ends.

They were looking for white guys in a van during the DC sniper case, too.

Very true. It would not suprise me that this is another case of seeing what they want to see. The truth doesn’t matter any more. Heaven help us.

A white pickup truck with the tail pipe dragging. No self respecting black guy would drive one of those.

Could be that the shooter is deranged, or possibly an agent procateur of those who want racial divisiveness prior to November elections. Is this the beginning of the “Spring Uprising?”

Apparently, this happened at 1am and the shooter is believed to be the driver of the pickup. Wondering how they could identify the race of the driver at night and no one able to get a license number?

Another version of this story says that the “word on the street” is that the guy would ask for directions and then shoot the person as he walked away. Now, I don’t know how familiar you are with North Tulsa, but I can’t imagine a white guy doing that at 1 am, or probably any time of day. The whole story is fishy.

Might be time to grab a bug out bag and get the h*ll out of dodge.

And don’t use a white van to do it.

Even before this, it was “iffy” to go to either of the large indoor malls in Tulsa. Now it’s definitely a no-go.

Sounds almost identical to the "serial slasher" from Flint Mi a few years back. He turned out to be middle eastern but was also described as white.

Outstandingly good question!!

By the way, “community leaders?” Really?

Just what the hell is a so-called “community leader,” anyway?

The one who heads up the eventual riot/looting spree/sanitized media coverage event?

Self-appointed race pimps, rabble-rousers, and Obama-loving lackeys, I’d hazard a guess...

Well, it certainly could be some nut job.

No telling if race has anything to do with it or not, but let’s not let that get in the way of stirring the pot some more.

The truth has very little to do with the reporting now days.
A template has been made and it will be stuck too, truth be damned.

As I posted on another thread. The “white” guy in the sketch became a middle eastern man also “targeting blacks”. (sketch and actual photo included) Flint Michigan 2010.

No self-respecting black mobster would drive a white pickup truck. A pink cadillac, maybe.

But seriously, Obama wants to start a race war, and the media are doing everything they can to help him.

Sounds asf if no one has actually SEEN the killer shooting. A white van, driven by a white guy in the area of the shootings. Well, maybe that is the key to these crimes. But its best not to rush to judgment.

A 78 year old white man beaten in the street by black thugs naming “Trayvon” as the excuse in Cleveland. That was said to not be a hate crime by the police.

This happened recently in Tusla:

I can not fathom the stupidity of a fool like this, nor the hatred.

He may as well light a fire in the cultural munitions plant.

Idiot, murdering bastard.

Forty years ago when I went to the horseshoeing school at Sperry, a bus load of us students would be going out to a horseshoeing job and pass through the north section of town.

The bus driver thought it was great fun to pass a group of black students, flip off the ignition key, then back on causing the bus to backfire, and watch the students scram like a covey of quail.

I always wondered, what if they shoot back!

If I were an NAACP leader right now I would be very careful with my public pronouncements, considering that the race-based organization has public offices, etc. which could be targeted by white extremist groups looking for an excuse to promote their agenda.

No sane person wants a race war, but if it was a white male, (who has seen the hypocrites make hay out of Trayvon Martin, and completely ignore the obvious race crimes against whites), comes unhinged and decides to exact revenge, well that just might be one of those Reverend Wright moments.

Chickens coming home...to roost.

Honestly, if this turns into another obvious contrived hoax, to incite racial animus, then it is fairly obvious that there will be no meaningful racial dialogue in this country ever again.
