Skip to comments.NAACP calls emergency meeting in wake of north Tulsa shooting spree

TULSA Several members of the Tulsa chapter of the NAACP gathered at a north Tulsa church Friday evening for an emergency meeting to discuss what police have characterized as a possible "shooting spree" that targeted five people early Friday morning.
As news spread that the police are looking for a white man in connection with the shootings of five black people, people began saying they believe the shootings were racially motivated.
KRMG spoke with Tulsa City Councilor Jack Henderson as the meeting continued in the 2200 block of N. Peoria Avenue.
When asked if people in the community felt that the shooter or shooters were deliberately targeting black people, he replied "yes, absolutely."
He told KRMG the "word on the street is that this person would drive up to people walking, ask for directions, and when they would turn away, walk away, begin firing. That's truly a concern, and anybody would be (ill) at ease if you knew this was going on."
He added that "I've talked to the Mayor, and the Mayor assures me that the city is on top of this. The police chief, I've talked to him, they have a lot of people that are on this case, they'll be working around the clock."
Henderson said he urges anyone with information to come forward, and in the meantime he wants people to be careful. Also, he definitely wants to avoid any sort of vigilantism.
"Don't go out late at night walking by yourself, until these people are apprehended. We need to be careful, and we don't want anybody to go out and do any vigilante-type stuff either. Let the police do their jobs."
White man who shot 5 blacks.
This is why we always know it is a black or Hispanic perp when the skin color of the perp isn’t listed. ANYTIME a white man is a perp, it is stated as such in the article, and especially if the victims are black or Hispanic.
The MSM think they are being so smart to withhold the skin color of black perps or the heritage of Hispanic perps, but we know better.
They do this like clockwork.
ANYTIME the perps are not ID’d you ca be sure they are “Amish or rogue Swedes”, anything but white guys.
And yes, go screw yourselves, Bill Clinton and the MSM, for making me a racist and think such bad thoughts on Holy Saturday. You are all despicably evil.
>> a white man in connection with the shootings of five black people, people began saying they believe the shootings were racially motivated.
Because this is a statistical anomaly? Ya’ know, given the lack of racial suspicion over the day-to-day data pointing to the disproportionate violence that’s plagued the Country for the last half century.
Good job, Media. Your race baiting may yield the rotten fruit you hoped for — you mofus!
We desperately need leaders that will unite the Country, not assholes that aim to divide it.
You make a good point, but I can’t imagine anyone with a CCL
and carrying, standing by to watch a shooting drive-by firing at innocent citizens because they are not related. You know what I mean?
Btw, in Oklahoma a gun is loaded if the clip is in, but in Texas a gun is loaded when in the chamber. Does that still hold?
Actually, do we even know if the shooter is a “white” man? Most Hispanics are white, with few blacks and much fewer Asian Hispanics.
We also know that ALL Hispanic perps are labelled as “white”, implying they are European descendant whites.
So how do we know this is not a Hispanic killing blacks?
I will withhold my belief it is a European white man until I learn if the shooter is Hispanic or not. It could be either, but I know that ALL Hispanic perps are called “white” so it could well be a Hispanic on black gang shooting for all I know.
Zimmerman gets around, don’t he?
Not just Barry but lest not forget Charlie too - Charlie Manson.
Not just Barry but lest not forget Charlie too - Charlie Manson.
No one knows for sure if the (white) shooter was motivated by race....as far as we know he was randomly shooting people in this black neighborhood ...he probably lives in the area...
He could have just as easily went bonkers in a Hispanic or white neighborhood...
Anybody who randomly kills three people and wound two others is not in his right mind anyway...
It turned out that the truth was a little different, but who gives a damn about the truth these days when we have "Hope and Change"?
By their very absence in the “Daily/Weekly Chicago Massacre”, and all thru the Nation, they are actively encouraging it. I truly fear that the “rapidly-bubbling racial conflict/riot cauldron” in America, which is of their specific and intentional doing, will erupt this Summer (or sooner), just in time for 0bummer to invoke the newly-EO-revised NDRP Act into effect.
I hope I’m wrong; I truly do.
Looks like a white guy to me! </sarcasm>
Reichstag Fire or Archduke Ferdinand Moment, yes. And they’ll find it, even if it kills us all.
When I worked in Tulsa in the early 70s I was interviewing an old Black guy. After the forms were completed we were just having a pleasant chat when the subject somehow came up about the Tulsa race riots back in the 30s, I think.
He said he was a young man at the time and was on his way from Muskogee to Tulsa when another Black man stopped him and told him to go back.
White mobs had responded to a Black mob and were killing Blacks on sight. He said the bodies were literally stacked in heaps. A lot of White people were killed too.
Probably the worst race riot in U.S, history.
Yep Just as I thought: Here we go....
A white man in a white van? Is Deputy Moose from the DC Sniper shootings on the case?
The mainstream media is wall-to-wall Trayvon Martin, but I only heard of the Tulsa home-invasion rape/murder case from conservative talk radio. The rest of the media is totally silent. You have to do a diligent search to find anything about it on the Internet.
On Friday afternoon detectives went back to the neighborhoods where the shootings occurred to speak to residents again, Walker said. Detectives were working through tips and leads they had received and were able to discern that a white man driving a white pickup might have been involved.
No further descriptions of any suspects were available.
The NAACP Tulsa president, the Rev. Warren Blakney Sr., said Friday night that “we’re very concerned” that someone was evidently “targeting black people to shoot.”
“I’m on edge for my people,” Blakney said at a meeting at the North Peoria Church of Christ, 2217 N. Peoria Ave.
When asked if he believed the shootings were racially motivated, Blakney said that when there are reports that someone “systematically shot black folk, what is one left to believe?”
Or maybe Obama's friend William Ayers.
More likely some Hispanic MS-13 gang-banger retaliating over something or other.
If we would just arrest, convict and execute George Zimmerman, this prolly wouldn’t have happened. /s
There is another thread currently on Free Republic which asks “Is Obama (Barry) Dangerously close to Totalitarianism”: Well Guess what? Here we are, with another (Bogus) “attack” on Blacks by us crazy racist whites and another nail in the coffin of our nation.
Have a few more incidents occur Barry would have every excuse for declaring martial law and ripping us off of our freedoms. Just in time for the elections no doubt. These people have to be stopped.
No shooter suspect has been identified. No statements of someone white and driving a white pickup actually doing the shooting have been mentioned...only that the vehicle and person were seen. There's a big difference. As a matter of fact another vehicle, a gray Yukon, has also been mentioned.
BTW, I'm local to Tulsa and have been following is situation since early Friday morning.
Sounds like we need the NAAWP to sound the alert on this problem!
Are they pushing for a 1921 redux?
As you imply, the likely motivation for a white to kill random blacks would be anger over the fatal attack on the elderly white couple. Relations between Americans of all descriptions are rapidly spiraling out of control. Anger is the dominant emotion and is fanned by race baiting demagogues. No one is interested in solving any problems, they want to capitalize on discord and amp up the hatred.
For the black community to constructively address black on black crime, they would have to come to grips with the hip hop gangsta culture and that just isn’t going to happen. The number of committed white racists is comparatively small but growing. I don’t have much hope for the future, particularly with this populist/socialist/racist president who plans on riding discord for four more years of power (maybe more).
If racial incidents do not occur, they will be instigated. If they still do not occur, they will be staged. This is part of a rat conspiracy to energize their base to the voting booth--and beyond if necessary. They will do whatever is necessary to retain power.
Oh, you’re stuck on “what he says” (qutes) and not “what he does”. Has record Black unemployment improved? Schools? Crime in the hood? I think O is furious that his captive minions have not yet taken to the street in masse. He treats them with benign neglect. Takes them for granted. Probably does not like them very much and treats them with disdain. His college homies were Muslims and now powerful rich guys (Soros) or anti-American Nation of Islam Preachers (Farrakhan and Wright). He has a really conflicted self-identity (on many fronts)
All of those problems you cite are manifestations of a pathological black culture, not any “neglect” on the part of Obama.
I will agree that he is USING blacks as a means to further his own personal and Marxist agenda.
Depends on the state. In Pennsylvania you have the same right to use force to defend a third party as you would if you were the one attacked.
What they drummed into us in CCW class, though, is that we had better be DAMN sure that we knew who the good guy and who the bad guy was in any situation where we intervened. If we shot an undercover cop, we were screwed.
In most cases, though, that's clear enough. If there's a guy holding a knife to a woman's throat, he gets a bullet.
Think twice about sticking your neck out for a stranger. It’s sad to say, but is your life, your home, your family’s wealth and well being worthy of the person you are helping? Because entering into a situation bringing your gun can quickly cost you all of that, and the person you help may see you as the bad guy simply because you are have a gun. A stranger may end up being the biggest ingrate on the planet and care less what you have done and risked for them, and may well end up testifying against you.
My advice is to leave others to the police. They made their decision by being unarmed. Call 911 for them, and be a good witness, but don’t play hero for a stranger. Look what happened to Zimmerman. He was just trying to protect his neighbors. He should have stayed in his vehicle and on the phone. Where are all his neighbors now? Probably marching and wearing hoodies.
Was the Tulsa race riot in 1921?
Not to mention you loose the protections under the law when intervening on behalf of a stranger.
Not to mention a man and wife thing. You intervene on behalf of the wife with the husband the wife more than likely will be all over your ass.
I’ve not had any situation requiring any force other than words since I was a kid. All I can do is give it thought but I imagine you could tell what’s going on.
I hope in never happens because it would be a huge major league hassle to use deadly force. My thinking is once the weapon comes out it WILL be used.
You are exactly right.
I hope I’m wrong, but if this is retribution for the black on white crimes that go mostly unnoticed, then militant black racists are getting perversly paid back.
In the mean time, as the media focuses on Trayvon Martin and now this problem in Tulsa, and as they keep ignoring the root causes of this violence - wich is black racism - they are only fanning the flames of worse violence yet to come.
Arrest the race baiters. I don’t believe this.
Anyone remember Wayne Williams and the Atlanta child killings? Since it was a serial killing everyone just knew the perp was white. An avowed KKK member was investigated, but released. Turned out brother Williams was convicted for the deeds. Of course he maintains his innocence, but there aren’t many sitting in the pen for life who don’t.
You’re assuming too much, including the idea that there even were
any shootings. Just remember Tawana Brawley, the Duke Rape Case, Rathergate, and other leftist hoaxes too numerous to mention here. This is probably a racist hoax and, if not, the shooters were almost definitely black. The timing is just to convenient to be a bunch of whites.
The intense and purposeful race-baiting of this president is inciting this problem in America. He has empowered the malcontents, whiners, and ne'er-do-wells into endless throngs of self-pity and envy, with hope upon hope that they will intimidate those who oppose socialism/communisim into surrendering, there by making obama the "dictator".
Accusations are flying around, even when it's too early in the investigation. Wild people may take advantage and start something terrible.
Retaliation for previous incidents could be in progress already or the perception of it may invite more incidents all over the country.
0b0z0 is stoking the fires so he could put his latest emergency/non-emergency EO to good use.
Prayers for the country.
Take a guess what color the pol is: http://www.tulsapeople.com/Tulsa-People/January-2012/Meet-your-city-councilor/
Van Johnson’s fault.
Or is it just that I'm so old that I remember that the Helter Skelter murders were supposed to start a race war?
The problem is that, since THEIR president has decided to choose sides in a race war, I no longer care how many of Holders People have to die before they realize that voting 95% for a racist cypher was less than totally wise.
YUP! Trying to remember his name also. He is a friend of Rush Limbaugh who has mentioned him several times over the years.
I just remembered, he was an FBI profiler.
He was either stupid or extremely PC because his idea of who the perp was, was just plain idiotic.
I’ve divided feelings on that, while only sickos really want a war, looks like we are going to have it anyway, and, again,while I wish we could all get along, it’s becoming pretty obvious we are not going to, and a lot of those who won’t fight are going to become victims.
It's almost as if they're recycling the DC sniper stories.
Somebody call Cheeth Mooth. The DC snipers are back!
