Skip to comments.Tulsa's black community unnerved by shootings

Residents of Tulsa's predominantly black north side said Saturday they are afraid a shooter is still roaming their neighborhoods looking for victims after five people were shot -- and three killed -- a day earlier.
"We're all nervous," said Renaldo Works, 52, who was getting his hair cut at the crowded Charlie's Angels Forever Hair Style Shop on Saturday morning. "I've got a 15-year-old, and I'm not going to let him out late. People are scared. We need facts.
"You don't want to be a prisoner in your own home," he said.
Police are still waiting for the results of forensic tests, but investigators think the shootings are linked because they happened around the same time within a 3-mile (5-kilometer) span, and all five victims were out walking when they were shot. All the victims are black, and community members met this weekend in an effort to calm any unrest.
One of the victims told police that the shooter was a white man driving a white pickup truck who stopped to ask for directions before opening fire. Officer Jason Willingham said Saturday that the pickup was spotted in the area of three of the shootings.

“white shooter, white van....”
I grew up in an era where all the kids, most younger than 15, had curfews between 10pm and midnight on the weekend and during summer. We did just fine. We also went cycling and tobogganing without helmets. The nanny-statists still can’t figure out how we survived such horrors.
Five'll get you ten the shooter was driving a camión blanco.
No kid of mine was out roaming around after dark. If they had activities, it was all timed to the minute and pre-checked. Parents can keep control of all this if they know each other.
Where’s Chief Moose when you need him?
Isn’t Jesse Jackson ,Bobby Rush et al encouraging folks to wear “hoods”.?
After all, as one black politician said:”it’s just a piece of clothing”.
