Media blackout: Nurse shot to death on the streets of Memphis
The Examiner ^ | August 13, 2013 | The Examiner

Posted on 08/13/2013 8:00:27 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

In the early morning hours of Aug. 12, police in Memphis arrested Dondre Johnson, 19, Mario Patterson, 23, and Jerrica Norfleet, 23, only minutes earlier, reportedly shot and killed a 27-year-old man on South Main Street.

The victim, David Santucci, was walking home after attending a birthday party at a bar on Beale Street, when the suspects pulled their vehicle alongside him.

The Commercial Appeal reported:

Crime: Walking while white.

Looks like all three suspects failed the cursive test.

"Despite the random, frightening nature as well as the racial overtones of the crime, this case has received no attention from the national media." Just another payback for Trayvon in the eyes of the race-hustlers like Sharpton and Jackson.

Just another day in America. Black thugs kill a working white guy and, hey, it was “just a robbery gone wrong”, nothing to see here.

That ‘woman’ (pictured in the article) is one of the most manly, stern women I’ve ever seen.

This crime doesn’t fit the narrative, therefor this is not a teachable moment and there is no need for a national discussion, nor does the victim resemble Obama’s son if he had a son. Let’s move on. (sarc)

Been to Beale Street once. OK, but over hyped.

I’ll be fine if I never set foot in Memphis again. It’s not a safe place.

My daughter has traveled alone as a young woman through cities and countries around the world & she (being with me at that visit to Beale Street) said Memphis was the only city she ever felt genuinely unsafe in. Which is all the reason I need to avoid it.

I’m talking in comparison to Ulaanbaatar, Hanoi, Bangkok, NY, Seoul.

It’s really unfortunate that it’s not generally safe to visit many American cities. That’s killing a lot of jobs and impoverishing people.

Holder’s preparing federal hate crime charges as we we sit here and Obama is going to give a major speech about this tomorrow. Or at least that’s what I’ve been told. After all, David Santucci could have been Obama’s on if he had had one.

Before Beale Street was “cleaned up” in the 70s no intelligent person would go anywhere near the place. Apparently it’s reverting back.

Its quite a teachable moment for myself. The avoid ghetto app for smartphones might be a worthwhile download.

Of course no place is 100% safe but its nice to know the local crime rates when visiting an unknown area.

as long as whites remain stupid, and accepting, and just continue this normalcy bias, that its an illusion that blacks attack whites at an astounding rate, and afterall, if you’re a nice young hip democrat nobody is really going to hurt you right?

Once you leave the interstate....there’s no real safe place in Memphis...as far as I’m concerned (except perhaps the airport). I don’t know what the cops do for a living in town....but it’s not law enforcement.

This is a "testing the waters" phase of a military-style operation (euphemistically referred to 'in country' as "poking the hornet's nest". They'll evaluate how easily this level of anti-White discrimination can be contained by (likely voluntary) press supression, and if all goes well, they'll ramp up the frequency, severity, and blatancy of more assaults.

O'Bung/Holder's desired end game in orchestrating and nurturing this anti-White hatred is the masses getting fed up, responding in a meaningful way, and then Dingle-Barry and Dick Holder can impose Martial Law, suspend the 2014 Elections, and finish their overthrow of our Constitutional Republic.

If we let 'em, that is...

The most violent thing that is likely to happen to you in Bangkok is a snatch and grab unless you are drunk and/or acting stupidly to the extent that would get you killed in the ghetto.

If the media covered all these kind of stories, they would have to have a completely new section in the newspaper. Perhaps it would be titled “Nothing to see here, move on”.
Amazing how the media ignores these murders as just another day in the life of the repressed black man.

Sherman, set the Wayback Machine for 1861...

Civil War 1.0 started with the rebel attack on Fort Sumter on April 12th. The first MAJOR battle of the war, between armies in the field, did not occur until July, three months later.

Between those two events, there were minor skirmishes and limited battles, as both sides mustered their forces and jockeyed for position.

Folks, that is what we're watching now. The Zimmerman Trial was our Fort Sumter. All these black-on-white beatdowns are the minor skirmishes. And they're leading up to the first major battle of Civil War 2.0.

Not sure if the app actually looks like that pic which I just pulled from the internet but yes there are some apps officially named safe neighbourhoods as far as I can tell for android phones. As for the iphone and other phone systems one would have to do more research. Here is a link for safe neighbourhood apps for android. http://appcrawlr.com/android-apps/best-apps-safe-neighborhood

Here is some commentary from last year on this type of app

Jan. 11 2012

“Avoid Ghetto” app slammed as “racist” – but is it really?

By David Menzies for MSN Autos

It’s funny how some people specialize in making mountains out of molehills – and finding offence where nothing offensive exists.

Case in point: a new Microsoft technology that helps users avoid “unsafe neighbourhoods” is generating controversy and even eliciting bizarre claims of racist undertones.

The back story: recently, Microsoft was awarded a patent for a feature on GPS devices. The feature, which will reportedly be part of future Windows phones, takes into account weather and crime statistics when suggesting routes. According to the patent filing, the technology will help a user avoid passing through an “unsafe neighborhood or being in an open area that is subject to harsh temperatures.”

I call that sort of information “helpful.” But the usual suspects are inexplicably labeling it as “racist”. They even refer to the technology as the “Avoid Ghetto” app (of course that is not the official name of the app.)

Still, some misguided critics are heaping scorn on this GPS feature. According to a report in Wired, one journal called the app “perfect for all your racist friends.”

But that’s ludicrous. The app analyzes crime stats – not the racial or cultural background of a particular neighbourhood.
The inanity continues: “What if someone using a route from this system does get mugged, shot, assaulted, or robbed?” wonders Chris Matyszczyk at CNET. “Would they feel entitled to sue Microsoft because the route was supposed to be ‘ghetto-free’?”

Yes, Chris, that’s exactly what Microsoft is promising: a route guaranteed to be free of all indignities, from muggers to mosquitoes or your money back.

Thankfully, some are defending the app. Anna North at Jezebel says the app could actually help women avoid rape. If Microsoft includes “rape stats in their route recommendations, they may be arming ladies with some extra information.”

Bottom line: people have avoided travelling through rough neighbourhoods for centuries. If, say, a shopkeeper tells a tourist to avoid a certain section of the city, is that person being a hateful racist or a helpful realist?

The Microsoft app is merely a case of technology replacing word-of-mouth. The harsh reality is, no matter where you go, there are good neighbourhoods and there are bad. Arming yourself with information that helps you avoid the bad neighbourhoods is simply a matter of applying good old-fashioned common sense. Nothing racist about that.

As soon as you mentioned the app, I started trolling around for it. I saw a lot of farticles commenting basically the same thing you did.

The last paragraph of your post is beautiful:

Arming yourself with information that helps you avoid the bad neighbourhoods is simply a matter of applying good old-fashioned common sense. Nothing racist about that.

A fine attribute, sadly lacking in our post-racial America.
