Bloody rampage sparked by disrespect at Miami-Dade wake
Miami Herald ^ | March 31, 2012 | Monique O. Madan, David Ovalle and Patricia Mazzei

The mass shooting that killed two people and wounded 12 others near North Miami began with a perceived sign of disrespect at the wake of a man who had jumped to his death from a shopping mall parking garage.

The act of reaching into the casket to touch the body of 21-year-old Morvin Andre escalated into a deadly conflict among gang members who opened fire into a gathering of mourners.

They had gone to the Funeraria Latina funeral home Friday night to grieve for Andre, who had died March 16 after jumping from a parking garage at Aventura Mall. The remembrance of his death turned into one of the bloodiest public shootings in recent South Florida history.

The end of Andre’s life was traumatic, but in a different way.

He had tried to use a stolen platinum American Express card to buy something — possibly a belt — at Bloomingdale’s, according to Aventura police. Store employees suspected credit-card fraud.

Andre took off, running into the mall’s parking garage and then up a stairwell to the fourth floor. From the floor below, employees called out that they just wanted to ask him some questions.

Instead, Andre jumped. It was a 22-and-a-half-foot drop.

“Now, when you hit the ground, that’s another thing entirely!”

Those concrete parking gagages built to hold thousnda of tons of live weight are way to hard. His family should sue the architect, the builders, sub-contractors, owners and especially Bloomingdale’s for forcing him to jump by falsely accussing ‘Money Marv” of something.

Racism’s rage, hatred and scapegoating is soul poison. Those who embrace it, embrace their own distruction.

The Left has built a ‘diversity” culture around racist poison for blacks. Hopefully, hispanics will rescue their children from it.

“Guru, jump in the boat and start looking for an island nation populated by violent cannibals. The drums say, “We need more DIVERSITY!”

I will NOT move to DC!

“BTW, I wonder if the shooters had valid CCW permits?”

Based on the number of rounds fired and the number killed, I say the shooters were having problems reading the instructions on their HoMeBoy sights.

PrImitive Baptists are "almost apostolic' which means you obey a set of rules administered by a church hierarchy of deacons and elders, only they don't believe in bishops and so forth.

There are variations on this theme that set them apart from the Old Apostolic Lutheran Church (first borns), or the older Church of the First Born (which also follows the Scandinavian Lutheran order of worship).

Related groups are Disciples of Christ, Christian Church (Independent) and Church of Christ (non-instrumental), as well as several Primitive Baptist associations (which are not African-American).

They strive to recreate the First Century Church and prohibit practices not mentioned in the New Testament ~ that includes the use of musical instruments.

The Disciples of Christ, the best known of the type, tried the First-Century idea but found problems so they shot for the Second-Century.

To a far greater degree than most of the members of these groups know their actual church practices are very much in line with traditional Eastern Orthodoxy (sans the hierarchy of bishops). Theologically they are not in dispute with the RCs except on questions of church structure and hierarchy. They should almost always come down in the same place with the Catholics when it comes to moral positions.

Just looking over the names it has the look and feel of HAITI ~ and that business of someone reaching into the casket may have much more to do with Voodoo than Santaria or Christianity or "respect".

There is a large Haitian community near Miami ~ they have a reputation for voting Republican!

IF we were liberal elites, we would believe this kind of behavior was common at white funerals too.

If we were liberal elites we would call conservatives who doubted that these types of killings are common at white funerals, racists.

If we were liberals, the MSM would back us.

They make it sound like it was suicide. More likely he died while trying to escape by jumping from the building.

It truly seems appropriate that such people be called the “Sons of Obama”.

This changes their appellation from 160 years ago, when they were still known as the “Sons of Ham”.

The Babylonian Talmud states that blacks are the descendants of Ham, the black son of Noah, whose son Canaan was cursed with servitude for Ham’s “looking at the nakedness of his father, Noah.”

Peoples Temple originally began as a Disciples of Christ church, and was still affiliated with them when they went to Guyana. Of course, it was in name only, as Peoples Temple was in reality an early Liberation Theology/Socialist Theology “church”

Absolutely correct. Jones’ old church building in Indianapolis was still standing and visible from I70 a number of years ago. Had the People’s Temple name too. As of 2011 it was still there looking like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/peoplestemple/6937304639/

So insensitive!

You try firing your Glock while holding it sideways, chugging a malt liquor from the bottle, and driving an Escalade by at a high rate of speed, after smoking crack, snorting heroin, smoking a joint while your pants are falling off. This gangsta stuff ain't as easy as it looks to white boys.
