TULSA Several members of the Tulsa chapter of the NAACP gathered at a north Tulsa church Friday evening for an emergency meeting to discuss what police have characterized as a possible "shooting spree" that targeted five people early Friday morning.
As news spread that the police are looking for a white man in connection with the shootings of five black people, people began saying they believe the shootings were racially motivated.
KRMG spoke with Tulsa City Councilor Jack Henderson as the meeting continued in the 2200 block of N. Peoria Avenue.
When asked if people in the community felt that the shooter or shooters were deliberately targeting black people, he replied "yes, absolutely."
He told KRMG the "word on the street is that this person would drive up to people walking, ask for directions, and when they would turn away, walk away, begin firing. That's truly a concern, and anybody would be (ill) at ease if you knew this was going on."
He added that "I've talked to the Mayor, and the Mayor assures me that the city is on top of this. The police chief, I've talked to him, they have a lot of people that are on this case, they'll be working around the clock."
Henderson said he urges anyone with information to come forward, and in the meantime he wants people to be careful. Also, he definitely wants to avoid any sort of vigilantism.
"Don't go out late at night walking by yourself, until these people are apprehended. We need to be careful, and we don't want anybody to go out and do any vigilante-type stuff either. Let the police do their jobs."
Is this another one of ABCNNBCBS cases of putting a cherry bomb in the race relations fuel tank?
Will there be an admonition to "Take ten" -- and I mean to take a break and let the police find out what really happened NOT the 1960s version of "kill ten whites". (Blacks were ten percent of the population in those days.)
Randomness is the key. No motive, no connection, no apparent reason for the location or individual can mean no arrest.
The variation between the 2 stories is interesting. One has to ask why they differ and are there realy witnesses or is this just based on “the word on the street”? Either way, I’m afraid it will be an excuse for more violence.
So how much do you want to bet the meeting started out with the words: “So how do we capitalize on this situation?”
Just what I was thinking. Not to throw cold water on all this wild speculation, but DC turned the area upside down looking for a white shooter driving a white van or small truck and it turned out to be two black guys driving an old dark colored sedan. I think I will wait for more definitive information in this new case.
I think a nod and a wink would be sufficient.
Tulsa....say, isn’t that where some black thugs raped and beat to death that 85-year-old lady and shot her 90-year-old husband in the face and left him for dead about 10 days ago? They stole their Dodge Neon and $200. Is it THAT Tulsa, or am I thinking of a different one? /s

Maybe the naacp will bring in the notorious Chief Moose as a consultant. He will get to the bottom of this...that’s the ticket!
This sounds suspicious, too convenient. I recall a similar rush to judgment in Atlanta when black children were targeted. The “media” pushed the “evil” white guy (with no proof)then it turned out to be a black man. What about the 70 year old white man beaten by young blacks to “get even” for Trayvon?
I wonder if anyone will blame NBC and MSNBC for stoking the flames of racism. What about Jesse and sharpton? Looks like they all had a hand in this.
Ohhh, he hates whites the most. His daddy never pretended to love him.
Original early reports said a white pickup with the tailpipe dragging.
Usually early reports are more accurate and detailed before the PR Folks try to sanitize them.
Probably some redneck meth head.
Does anyone remember the FBI analyst or whatever he was called, going on nearly every news show possible and telling us it was White Racists? Also the almost non-stop worship of Chief Moose, who had absolutely nothing to do with the capture of the real criminals.
I can recall people on FR were saying that was nonsense, since most of the victims were White.
This time it really could be White guys, pushed over the line by the never ending assault on White Males.
Way too early to know tho.
Raped the old women and killed her husband.
Your memory is correct.
Dianne Sawyer did not report that, so it did not happen. You are mistaken.
I can understand that
“He cant figure out which race he is, or which he hates the most.”
You’re kidding, right?
He owes EVERYTHING to puttting his black half in the forefront.
Educate me, and please provide quotes from the RaceMarxist in which he demonstrates his hatred for blacks.
