Sam Lee Morris was still alive when police found him. The disabled 61-year-old was laying unconscious in the road at the intersection of Sunnyvale and Cummings Street in Southeast Oak Cliff just before 10 p.m. Saturday night, having apparently been hit by a car.
That's what officers suspected, at least, but the vehicle that had hit him was long gone, and no other witnesses came forward that night. They put Morris in an ambulance bound for Baylor, where he died.
Since then, homicide detectives have pieced together a better picture of what happened. Police say that Roberts was on the sidewalk, just a few dozen steps from his Cummings Street home, when a group of teenagers attacked him. During the struggle, they pushed him into the road, right into the path of a white vehicle of unknown make and model.
A neighbor told Fox 4 that the neighborhood is plagued by teens who roam the streets, harassing residents. "Every night you see teenagers like five or six yelling, music banging," Johnathan Neely said. "Why you not at home? Don't you got school tomorrow? I know school is out but summer jobs? Something to occupy your time but they be in the streets."
Sam's brother, Robert Morris, suspects his brother was returning home from a convenience store on Saturday night and probably looked like an easy mark because of his limp. When they tried to rob him, he said, his brother resisted.
"When that happened I'm sure he was trying to get away from him but he couldn't," Morris told Fox 4.
Detectives are searching for leads. The case is being investigated as a murder.
Amish or Mennonite yutes again?
Where is Diane Ragsdale, JW Price, and the other Dallas race baiters. I am sure this is whitey’s fault somehow.
The herd needs to be culled.
I’m just going to free style here and guess the Amish. :-)
Teens? Another lamestream media euphemism for well...you know. I'm only surprised they didn't use the term "child" a la the sainted Trayvon Martin aka Obama's lookalike son.
another term for teens who roam the streets looking for trouble should be moving targets
I assume of course the victim was black as well, nobody cares about black-on-black crime.
A Clockwork Orange.
Now it is not safe for a disabled person to be on the street? That is just great (sarcasm off)...
Dallas is Chitcago South.
You mean South Dallas is Chicago South.
“Every night you see teenagers like five or six yelling, music banging,”
Whatever happened to Clinton’s midnight basketball millions?
“Just singing in the rain.....”
"Why you not at home?"
Somehow I don't get the feeling they're listening to the Ink Spots, or The Platters.
The scary part is that these Amish kids can get on DART and come to N. Dallas.
If police commit more officers to the high crime area and profile "teens" they are accused of racism. If police treat the high crime area like any other part of the city and blac-on-black crime skyrockets as a result the police are accused of racism. The police cannot win when it comes to policing these areas.
What self respecting gangsta would ride public transportation?
~~~I know school is out but summer jobs?~~~
What? This is 2007?
South, southeast, northwest. It’s all ghetto. Voted for homObama both times. Corrupt city government. John Wiley Price. Need I go on?
Sorry, I have nothing good to say about that rat-infested sewer. Ft Worth has its problems, but Dallas is incurable.
South Oak Cliff.... Who’s surprised????
Fence ‘em off and check back in 10 years...
“The herd needs to be culled.”
I believe it was used on the “man caves” for the IRS employees.
Oak Cliff. Yep, I pegged it just reading the headline. I used to live not far from there in Oak Cliff back in the 70s. It was a white middle/upper class area. We had one black student one year. The following year, DISD decided integration was the way to go. That year, half the school was black and you weren’t allowed to so much as go to the restroom during class because someone might pull a knife on you while no one was around. It got so bad that, despite fire codes, they’d lock us in our rooms and pull down metal gates in the hallways. When the bell rang to change classes, they’d unlock the doors, sometimes from the outside, and you’d better get to your next class pronto. That summer is what is known as the white exodus. It went from a nice quiet area to ghetto gangsta over night.
Well, at least it wasn’t a hate crime. I’m betting.
Will Paul Kersey please pick up the red courtesy phone? Paul Kersey.
The forced integration and busing was decided for the DISD by the corrupt Warren Court along with the commie Thurgood Marshall and his loathsome tactic of using baby dolls from leftist Kenneth Clark.
See my #28. When I’ve passed through Dallas over the years, I’ve driven through the old neighborhood and I’m always grateful I got out alive. Lock the doors and don’t stop for anything. It’s sad how it looks now. The first pizza I had was at the Shakey’s Pizza place and I remember the first Jack in the Box and KFC there and shortly before we left, Red Lobster was the new hit. At school we could go to PE in the gym or the pool. Of course, I chose the pool. We had a nice house with an electric garage door, built in kitchen mixer, a whole house intercom system and the garbage was picked up in the alley. All the modern conveniences in an upper middle class neighborhood. Our house is still there but it’s all trashed out. Real brilliant there, DISD.

A silenced .22 would clear things up a lot faster and a lot cheaper than more cops on the street or midnight basketball.
A few troublemakers end up with .22 slugs in their butts, with no idea where they came from or who did it, the street will become remarkably peaceful.
Every day, we’d watch WFAA (or was it the PBS station?) for the news on integration and mom and dad would get antsy. The theme music was Tina Turner’s Proud Mary. I still hate that song.
I dont recall massive sanitation problems in Cape Town during Apartheid. Granted, Cape Towns demographics have changed considerably since then; and, as weve seen in Detroit and other numerous cities, a demographic shift from majority white to majority black is always met with an increase in crime, an increase in violence, deteriorating schools, and deteriorating infastructure. These protestors can complain about government all they want, but people create a citys environment and no amount of spending can turn a city around if the people cannot maintain the structure put in place as were seeing in Cape Town, Detroit, and all cities that have seen a similar demographic shift.
It was only when the meddling federal government upset things in 1965 that forced integration became the policy of the DISD by coercion. They fought this for eight years until the liberals on the Fifth Circuit coerced the DISD to follow the all deliberate speed edict handed down by the commie Warren Court requiring forced integration and forced busing of children out of their neighborhood schools.
As for Brown v. Board of Education, it could have overturned the Plessy ruling of 1896 and left it at that. It was no less than Clarence Thomas who expressed a reasonable view of the damage inflicted by the Brown edict:
Given that desegregation has not produced the predicted leaps forward in black educational achievement, there is no reason to think that black students cannot learn as well when surrounded by members of their own race as when they are in an integrated environment. Because of their "distinctive histories and traditions," black schools can function as the center and symbol of black communities, and provide examples of independent black leadership, success, and achievement.
In front of the elementary school.
That neighborhood, according to the fascinating city-data.com (census data) is 97% black, with a median household income of $12.8k.
Median age 26.
No home value data.
Median contract rent $479.
They’re not teens, they’re murderers, and should be treated as such. I hope they get found, tried, and convicted.
Yes, the city-data.com website is indeed fascinating. A vivid study in contrast is available there by comparing two adjacent cities, separated by only a couple of miles.
First there's East Saint Louis, IL which is 97.7% black and has had 46 murders over the past two years. Its overall crime rate index is a staggering 2089.8!
Then, a scant distance away (at least in terms of physical proximity -- a world away otherwise) is Granite City, IL which is 87.1% white and only 5.4% black. In the same timespan, there were ZERO murders. Its index of crime is 329.3, a fraction of that of its nearby neighboring city.
The populations of both of these Midwestern cities are very close and the income disparity isn't really overwhelming between these two areas. What may account for the stark difference between these two cities is left as an exercise.
The white exodus or white flight was the summer of 1972.
Thanks to some friends at church, they tell me of Oak Cliff that used to be nice, hospitable and safe. Those are all distant memories now thanks to an intrusive federal government overturning the Tenth Amendment and the destruction that followed in its wake.
Forced integration was never meant to uplift Blacks. It was a means to weaken Western Civilization in America and make it easier to impose Globalism/Communism.
All the phony propaganda used to sell forced school integration to the public is based on the racist premise that blacks can not learn in an all black environment but need whites around to succeed, through osmosis I presume.
I see the problem. Right there! I hope Obama can do something about this!! [/s]
Notorious Black Ghetto part of Dallas
Now I suppose those JBTs will start harassing innocent children in an effort to solve this case. /s
( I think this dates both of us.)
Since the neighbors describe their behavior in ebonics, Amish is a good guess.
