Posted on 04/07/2012 5:47:15 PM PDT by Justaham
Residents of Tulsa's predominantly black north side said Saturday they are afraid a shooter is still roaming their neighborhoods looking for victims after five people were shot -- and three killed -- a day earlier.
"We're all nervous," said Renaldo Works, 52, who was getting his hair cut at the crowded Charlie's Angels Forever Hair Style Shop on Saturday morning. "I've got a 15-year-old, and I'm not going to let him out late. People are scared. We need facts.
"You don't want to be a prisoner in your own home," he said.
Police are still waiting for the results of forensic tests, but investigators think the shootings are linked because they happened around the same time within a 3-mile (5-kilometer) span, and all five victims were out walking when they were shot. All the victims are black, and community members met this weekend in an effort to calm any unrest.
One of the victims told police that the shooter was a white man driving a white pickup truck who stopped to ask for directions before opening fire. Officer Jason Willingham said Saturday that the pickup was spotted in the area of three of the shootings.

We got a winner!
90% chance that the shooter is also black going by statistics
***Tulsas black community unnerved by shootings****
Yep, but when White people are un-nerved by blacks shooting or beating up White people they are racist. You know this was going to happen with all that has been going on in the last couple of years.
I’ll bet my paycheck that Obama and his inner circle are high fiving all over the place. The clash of races is what he’s been working for.
Yup exactly, what about all the shootings in Detroit, Oakland, New York, etc?
They’re not afraid of those, because the shooters are black??
And again, why is there MEDIA OVERKILL as soon as a “white guy” is mentioned? And only when a “white guy” is mentioned? Now THAT’S racist!!
A white guy in a white van.
will the ny times report the suspect as a white african.
Now you know how the white folks in your neighborhood feel.
Cause Blacks live in the street when the sun goes down.
Yes, it's a serious matter, lives are taken and ruined. It is not something to joke about. But remember, everyone in the media knew absolutely that the snipers in D.C. were white. Some killings could have been prevented if the media were not such jerks.
Why can't the media handle this, IF it really is a white man, like they handle the cases of blacks murdering blacks and whites -- like any number of times each week across the country..
by letting the police handle it with little notice from the media.
Since the killing started in the past 24 hours who was the first to publish the story of the May 1921 killing and ravaging of black communities in Tulsa?
The national media or local media? Count on it. The news will be full of accounts of how in 1921 racists whites invaded black neighborhoods and massacred everyone like the cavalry, it is said, used to massacre Native Americans.
Here are the answers:
A publication called Afro American and the Wall Street Journal have lit the fuse.. they both have dragged out ALREADY IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS! the story of the white racists ravaging black neighborhoods in 1921 Tulsa -- COUNT ON THIS: some dopey news media will think that the accounts are current news and scream headlines stirring up even more trouble -- My guess.. MSNBC.
Maybe they should’ve said: “like whites on rice”....

I use to live off Denver in a turn of the century 3,600 sq ft home.
It’s the racist hoodies versus the racist pointy hats! A pox on all their houses.
***white racists ravaging black neighborhoods in 1921 Tulsa***
When was the last time “white racists” burned down a section of a city?
Since I can remember it has always been blacks burning down their own city.
This story “front page, above the fold” on Drudge and every other news presstitute service though 5 shootings in predominantly black neighborhoods brings sighs of relief on most nights, it’s usually a lot worse. Unless police have evidence that they haven’t released they have one wounded victim saying it was a “White” dude and they are blaming all on him?
While, of course, this horrific crime goes unnoticed:
‘Course, then again, it’s just black on black crime so the presstitutes don’t care
Or, they're looking for them Duke boys in an Orange Dodge Charger.
‘Course Whitey ain’t unnerved by these killings. (Do I really need the /sarc tag? Just askin’)
