A Chicago man who recently moved to Gary, Indiana to try and turn his life around, lost it over a pair of sneakers.
Sergio Pinex, 18, was returning from a store with a friend Thursday morning, walking down 23rd Avenue in Gary, when two vehicles pulled up next to them and stopped. A man with a gun got out and demanded money and the mens shoes.

dang white people!!
Trayvon would be proud. Obammy’s son strikes again.
Shoulda moved to Merrillville, Not No_Limit_Gary.
Will you take a look at those crime figures! http://www.city-data.com/city/Gary-Indiana.html Gary is 80% black. The murder rate is 10X the national average. That’s a hell of a place to try to turn your life around.
Some folks are on the low end of that Bell Curve thingie.
Anyone who lives there knows Gary, Indiana wreaks of stench (having driven east and west on the freeway).
Someone told me that some of LIFE AFTER PEOPLE was filmed there.

I wonder if we’ll see the morons on Capitol Hill busting out with their Air Jordans while they whine about this with a speech written by the buffoons on their staff.
This is why you don’t wear good stuff in bad neighborhoods.
Doesn’t everyone get their shoes by taking them from someone else? In the black community it sure seems that’s how it works.
I really just don’t get the blacks.
Losing it over a guy who shoots a black who’s beating the crap out of him and trying to take his gun.
Saying nothing about yet another of a mountain if incidents of black on black crime where one black murders another just for a stinking pair of shoes.
Perspective, people? Priorities out of whack? Man there is no hope for the black community. No hope. They can’t fix themselves and nobody else can either. All that is left is containing them from hurting everyone else as they take themselves out.
Of course the article has no hint of the perps so I suspect they were either White Hispanic or White African-American.
Only 80% black? No way, at least 99.5% black.
A little over a decade ago Gary Indiana and New Orleans Louisiana used to play tag team for the highest murder per capita rate. They almost alternated. Not sure post-Katrina how it is.
Their response: It`s a black thing.. you wouldn`t understand.
Detroit was in the running for awhile, until it depopulated.
lol. My first thought was - you want to turn your life around and you move to GARY?! Me thinks there was a bit of melodrama in developing this narrative.
A white black, that would be 0bama!
I can't imagine what the economy has done to it by now.
How many sons does Obama have !???!??
What if the shoes are the wrong size?
Then they sell them to someone whose feet they fit.
Some black gang members came up to my county here in CA(east of Sacramento)and robbed my nephew and two other kids and all they took were the shoes. I guess they figured it would be easy pickings with the country crackers, but they were mistaken, they were caught before they got out of the small cities limits. One of the kids had 911 on speed dial and had it going during the robbery. Kids all got their shoes back and perps went to jail.
Can't you just here the conversations in Del Paso Heights(Sacramento Getto)? Hey, bro want to go shoe shoppin' today? Yo, get the guns and let's go!
It is hard to understand a mind set that thinks the best way to get shoes is to steal them.
