Jogger, 60, is gunned down in broad daylight by drive-by shooter who targeted him at random
Daily Mail ^ | May 20, 2012 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 05/20/2012 5:33:48 PM PDT by Colonel Kangaroo

A 60-year-old man out for his morning jog in a quiet suburb of Kansas City was gunned down in a drive-by shooting that appears to be a purely random murder.

It has been one week since someone in a passing car fired a single shot that struck Harry Stone. The car never slowed down and the driver continued speeding along, leaving Mr Stone to die on the side of the road in Raytown, Missouri.

A law enforcement task force convened in the wake of the shooting suggested the killing could be some kind of gang initiation.

However, police in the city of 29,000 people have ruled out that possibility.

There has been a rash of Black on White random violence, Is this the case here? I do not know, hope not but it could be another case:http://homicide.kansascity.com/victims/58/

There are those who want a racial war and I think they are doing there best to get one started.

I guess that if you are going out jogging, you need to bring along a tail gunner.

A city of 29K is too big for me. I never want to live in a town of more than 10K if I can help it.

I now live in small town 7K and that is almost too big for my comfort. I am just out side of the Cleveland, OH metro area and although there are a lot of conveniences of living in a metro area, I will gladly give them up when I retire to get away from traffic and the drama of these concentrated busybodies.

“....who targeted him at random....”

.
If they do not know who the shooter is how do they know that it was done in a random fashion?

Funding gangs willing to carry out shootings that result in a race war could be a part of the stimulus plan. I think this is the sort of thing that Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and Paul Krugman came up with.

According to one local source, the victim said he was shot by a black before he died. This seems a case of jogging while white.

Probably not random. The poor guy met the profile...harmless, unarmed, white. This reminds me of the Zebra killings in SF, and I bet it’s not going to be the last of them unless the police in KC get busy right now.

One of the comments on the Daily Mail site was from “Kansas City Girl”, who said she/he resided in Kansas City, who said: “There are plenty of enemies of Mr. Stone.”

I don't see how you can escape the influence of "big city" when you are just outside any metro area, regardless of the population of your little town. Here, in my part of the west it is 30 - 50 miles or so between small towns with no big cities at all. And even so, big city liberal influence is creeping in (they had their first queer parade a while back). Anyway, good luck and I hope you can get as far as possible from the big city.

Well we do have a small town government. But I suggested in the rest of the post that I want out.

"One of the comments on the Daily Mail site was from “Kansas City Girl”, who said she/he resided in Kansas City, who said: “There are plenty of enemies of Mr. Stone.”

"Stone was a homeowners’ association leader and the husband of a pastoral assistant – she was supposed to preach Sunday morning at Raytown’s St. Luke United Methodist Church, CNN affiliate WDAF reported."

"People who knew Stone told KCTV that he enjoyed serving others, doing things such as helping to build a park next to his church. His daughter, Susan Li, told reporters Monday that he prided himself in keeping physically fit and hoped to get back into running marathons."

Those homeowner's association leaders can easily make a lot of enemies....

If this man told a witness a black man shot him, there’s a strong possibility he might have had prior verbal confrontation with him while out jogging.. Perhaps in a cross walk or on a corner. It’s entirely possible this was random with all the ‘justice for Trayvon’ cr@p going on but prior verbal run-in is possible too.

Yeah just make CRAP up, for starters.

It’s easier to kill someone who is jogging along, minding their own business, if you make them stop first.

Can’t be.

MLK had a dream that was emulated in every newspaper as what the future would be in America.

You mean, MLK’s dream was just a figment of his imagination?

No, it was a dream. An ideal. Unfortunately, the people who coopted his mantle of leadership have been doing all they can to ensure that the races are always at odds to ensure they and their descendants will have employment and enrich themselves by stealing from those they con.

You are absolutely right. There's a really high probability he got into a verbal confrontation. So, you would expect him to be shot. That just makes sense.

You must be in the law enforcement field.

Another “random” attack on a white woman walking through Target. A Black man stopped by housewares, picked up a butcher knife and stabbed the woman in the back without saying a word. This just happened in Dallas!

My point is, there might be witnesses to the prior verbal confrontation if there was one.. And I’m NOT saying violence is the proper response to a verbal confrontation!

I always had a feeling that MLK never believed in his own dream — he was a realist.

I do volunteer work for an assistance ministry and, based on my perception of the people we help, MLK’s dream will, at best, remain a dream and, at worst, turn into a nightmare.

Raytown. God's Country.

Well... at one time it was. Like Independence, which used to be God's Country and home of the RLDS.

Of course, Independence is now the METH capital of Missouri, and Raytown is turning into Detroit.

Kansas City is the center for incoming illegal immigrants, due to it being the CROSSROADS of the entire US (a major transportation hub).

Then there is Kansas City, Kansas (known to locals as Wyandotte County), which is mostly made up of immigrants and the East Bottoms (trucking and manufacturing industries, and warehouses).

And I'm probably not telling you anything you don't already know.

Sorry I got so 'off track' with my first comment.

Actually RAYTOWN was originally a Military Base (airbase). Part of what is now 350 Highway used to be the runway. Many of the houses were originally military housing.

Well... if she resided in 'Kansas City', it is highly unlikely she even knew Harry Stone.

Now if her 'name' was RAYTOWN GIRL, I would lend more credence to her comment. My guess is that KANSAS CITY GIRL is some black chick supportin' her homies.

If Harry Stone had any enemies, it would be young black thugs with guns. Harry was very active in the 'church' (lookup his wife's occupation), and a 'good citizen' of Raytown (God's country - invaded by uneducated and racist minorities).

If KCGIRL knows so much, ask her who RAYTOWN is named after.

According to one local source, the victim said he was shot by a black before he died.

After watching the surveillance video, and reading the witness statements, it was four young thugs with guns who were obviously of the 'black' culture who leaned out the windows of the car as they were driving by, yelling racial epithets, and fired multiple rounds at Harry Stone because he was 'white' and an 'easy target' (which is what most punks go after).

Yeah... especially if you are a hardened criminal or drug addict and leave your yard and house full of trash, bringing down the value of the whole neighborhood.

We live in what used to be known as a 'civilized' nation and society.

Many 'people' in our society do not want civilization, and things like 'laws'.

Well, actually the hypocritical lying bastards want 'laws' when laws give them the right to kill other people or steal from them, but other than that, 'laws' are just 'the man' trying to keep them 'down'.

Sorry... but white people who jog in Raytown KNOW that you never confront or yell at a car with four young 'black' thugs, mainly because you can be SURE they are ARMED and itching for some 'bragging rights' at Raytown High School, or maybe SouthEast High School.

No there isn't. It is actually highly unlikely.

What is MOST LIKELY is that they were driving around looking for a victim, and saw Harry jogging (it was 6am. What was a group of four young 'thugs' doing at 6am? Looking for jobs?). So they paralleled him going past the gas station and shot him while they were on a road that had quick access to major highways (and a straight shot back to the 'hood'. Probably somewhere off Blue Parkway).

Well, none have come forward, and in the time Harry was jogging past the gas station, a vehicle could have driven two miles.

If there HAD been a 'verbal confrontation', Harry would have been shot right then and there. That is how this works. Imagine 'disrespect' and then kill the source of it. They SHOT him because it was an EASY TARGET, the streets were mostly EMPTY, and they had Access to major highways two blocks away.
