A 16-year-old was today arrested and charged over the murder of Nathan Trapuzzano, the newlywed who was shot dead as he took a morning walk. Simeon Adams, known by the nickname 'Red', is alleged to have confessed to a friend that he shot Nathan once in the stomach - after the newlywed, who was expecting his first child, reached down to his shoes as Adams made him strip during the robbery. Adams' friend Marvell Robinson told detectives he was woken up by the alleged shooter on the morning of April 1 at his home in Indianapolis. Adams told him: 'Man the police is out here and they are looking for me.' Robinson told detectives Adams made Nathan strip, according to the court papers. 'When he told Nathan to take his pants off the victim started reaching for his shoes and Simeon asked him (Nathan) "Why you reaching for your shoes?". Simeon said the "white man tried to tussle with me so I shot him"'. Nathan, a 24-year-old software engineer had been out for a morning walk at around 5am, when Adams and accomplice Martez 'Duh-Duh' McGraw allegedly targeted him.

May the Lord help and comfort Nathan Trapuzzano's family.
Mr. Trapuzzano was a devout Catholic, killed with rosary beads in his hands, and much was said at his funeral about forgiveness. It's for those who loved him to forgive, not those who just read about him, but it's so hard to remember that Jesus died for racist punk murderers too.
(Note to mod: title shortened to fit)
Is the IPD out of rope? We could buy them some.
here's some advice for people....some young punk gun or no gun starts demanding you do things go after him instead....you might still get shot but you might also be able to avoid it better if you go on the offensive...
asking him to strip is just sick....
Bet he said “This is for Trayvon.”
Here we go, Travon in reverse. Can’t wait to see the outcome of this one.
Let Jesus forgive him. If it were my brother I would take this animal and flay him alive, with generous amounts of gasoline poured into his abdomen during the process. Might take 3-4 days to do it. Then he can take his chances with Jesus. But this vermin needs to suffer.
The face of a lowlife loser... bet his whole family is the same.
Fry 'em all
Chief Hite offered a timeline of Adams’ alleged activities leading up to Trapuzzano’s murder. On March 22, he is alleged to have been involved in a gun store robbery; on March 30th, he is accused of shooting a man on Dr. Martin Luther King St. On April 1, he allegedly murdered Trapuzzano during a mugging, and 17 hours later he was shot
At this point, just carry. It doesn’t matter if you have a permit or not (better you get one, but in the meantime). It is patently obvious we have a problem in this country that needs dealt with and you are better off being alive to be judged by twelve than carried by six because our laws don’t help you, they only help the criminals and ferals while the police hide and say they are not responsible to protect you.
Jesus cares for these human pieces of garbage far more than i do.
I believe one can only forgive someone who ASKS to be forgiven. I doubt this racist pri*k even thinks in those terms.
Simeon? You can’t make this stuff up.
That’s actually a classic spelling, Biblical and Old English,
one of Jacob’s sons and in the NT, the old man in the Temple who it was prophesied would live until he saw Christ, and acclaimed Jesus at his presentation.
His mother did right by her son naming him.
Local news here has the typical mystery suspect, no photos of him whatsoever leading you to believe he is probably a white Christian. Also no mention of the whitey remarks... just another teenager
Too bad the little SOB isn’t eligible for the death penalty.
Every death of an innocent at the hands of a criminal is tragic, but it always seems worse when someone young and with so much ahead of them has it all taken away by a piece of human garbage like this punk.
As for Indy...my aunt used to live there, and I’d visit now and again. She moved to Fishers about a few years ago, and probably wouldn’t go back if you paid her.
And his colleague, “Duh Duh.” That’s all I’ll say.
Folks, arm and train yourself. You may just save your life and/or the life of a loved one.
The feral creature who did this is less than human and does not deserve to live amongst us.
What’s really sad about all of this is that this punk is going to be regarded as a hero by his fellow brothas. He’ll has plenty of street cred to get him through prison now. He go through a trial, get convicted, serve 10 or 20 years, get out, and then do it again.
The recidivism rate for criminals is about 65% within three years.
“It doesnt matter if you have a permit or not (better you get one, but in the meantime).”
I am beginning to think that having “a permit” simply makes you a target for the cops. At the end of the day, if you need to protect yourself, the fact that you do or do not have a permit will probably be the least of your worries.
Fry the little thug...
“Why you reaching for your shoes?”
That sentence amazes me at the lack of reasoning. Or - perhaps his gangster style of clothing with the baggy shorts doesn’t require the removal of shoes before taking off one’s pants.
Ok folks, YOU know where you live and the demographics of the areas you frequent.
It is NOT “racist” to be culturally aware!
YOU are NOT immune!
When the statistical data is NOT in your favor, that is your clue that you owe it to yourself and your family to PROTECT YOURSELF!
Are you going to worry about what kind of 2A restrictions Indy has imposed, before you go for a 5 a.m. walk?????
Why you reaching for your shoes?
That sentence amazes me at the lack of reasoning. Or - perhaps his gangster style of clothing with the baggy shorts doesnt require the removal of shoes before taking off ones pants.
Don’t be amazed with the lack of reasoning. The killer feral creature simply has a VERY low IQ—as do most of his peers. They are OBSOLETE and there is no productive place for them in society now. And they know that is the case and, I believe, is one of the sources of their rage against those who are actually capable with normal IQs.
WTF? Dat boy be wearing a skirt?
Of course, we have to hear a defense/excuse from the KILLER’S FAMILY! AS IF WE GIVE A FLYING CRAP!!
That boy; I say, that boy ain't right in the head. (If you know what I mean.)
must have thought he was reaching for an ankle holster... better to have the piece in or near your hand.
And I do not live in a "diverse" area.
Give them the rope.
Murderer is 16. Likely to be tried as juvenile. Juvenile life is the max. In short, release at 18 or so.
He’ll have to be put down later.
Maybe he’ll die in the (civil) war. It happens. Or by a fellow inmate’s shiv.
He go through a trial, get convicted, serve 10 or 20 years, get out, and then do it again.
He will probably be tried as a juvenile offender and get juvenile life. Released upon his majority.
He won’t make 30. I’ve seen the type. They think they are invulnerable, and it is usually a comparable hellspawn that takes them out. Most of them don’t even make it into their mid 20s.
Tray-gone, as it were.
Indianapolis is a failing city. I hate to say it, since I used to live there, but its murder rate spiked last year above even Chicago’s level, and this year has been even worse. City officials are clearly hapless and have little if any idea what to do about public safety.
Personally, I’d just avoid the place entirely until it decides to clean up its act. If that ever happens...
Already reported he will be tried as an adult. But, no death penalty due to his age when the crime was committed.
I am already smelling a plea bargain and less than 20 years. Not enough time. Anything less than life in solitary is too little time.
Eeevvviiiillll White man is always guilty. Dark skin is a free pass to murder, rape and steal.
The good thing is while in prison he can work on his rapper career..../ S
That picture is pretty wary.
The scariest thing of all is the date it was taken on- some time in 2010. This means that the thug was about 11 or 12 at and was already a gang banger thug wanna be before he was even in his teens.
These kids, from the earliest of age, are growing up and being socialized in an environment that glorifies gangsterism and the gangster life style all that it entails, including violence, misogyny (even the girls), hatred and deliberate murder of innocent people, while they are still in elementary school.
The use of brain damaging drugs such as purple drank which rapidly damage the brain and especially the parts of the brain that govern anger management and impulse inhibition adds to the problem.
This is not an isolated incident we are seeing, but is instead the leading edge of new social and cultural phenomena - the emergence of a hate filled, hyper violent youth gang culture that celebrates random violent, racially motivated gang attacks on others where injuring or killing, not robbery, is the sole motivating factor.
Back in the 80’s the gang wars were actually much more violent but the motivation was primarily fighting over drug turf and the huge amounts of money drug trafficking generated, which is at least a rational and understandable activity.
This new generation of thugs is not even interested in robbing it's victims and carries out attacks where the only goal is in maiming or killing randomly selected innocent victims
As this emerging generation comes of age we are going to see more and more of this kind of random, violent assault and murder reminiscent of what we saw in Rwanda
In the picture we see that whatever is motivating this generation started at a very early age and has been going on for many years.
That is very, very scary
You expect reasoning from those things? They are incapable of rational thought.
“Simeon? You cant make this stuff up.”
Have you read a Bible lately? Simeon was an important person.
Good advice, I never leave home without at least one little friend.
Went to the driving range several days ago and had my pal with me, and I am not paranoid, just prepared.
If I ever am accosted, unarmed, then it is my own fault and I deserve what happens.
We read about this in a BRITISH paper. Nothing from the execrable American mainstream media.
Time to bring back LYNCHINGS.
“He was just a normal teenager”
And there is the problem. The Black community considers his behavior “normal”.
