SANFORD — Vickie Little stayed up a bit longer than she usually did Sunday night watching television and slipped into a slumber.
Her sleep was punctuated by a knock at her door from police officers who had found her 17-year-old son collapsed on the street from a gunshot wound just a block away from their new home.

Where are the ransoms for the shooter(s)?
For black shooters there is a aura of invincibility because of the press. It is only going to get worse.
Ooops! That should be "bounties". More coffee, please!
Where’s the skittles and AZ Ice T? If not for those items there would be no news. Product placement?
They don’t go to school and they don’t work regular hours. Gangbangers and other assorted criminal scum commit their killings at night and sell their dope and other activities during the day and early evening, after sleeping in during morning hours. At least that’s what I’ve observed in my city. Drive through the ghetto from around 4am to around noon, not much going on. That’s the time you can drive thru the ‘hood in relative safety, relative being the operative word.
Since the media was so intent upon telling us the race of the ‘white-hispanic’ Zimmerman, seems to me they ought to tell us the race of Jamison and those in his neighborhood who know who did the shooting and are protecting the assailants.
Don’t dis da bros bro.
(Which is what I think happened to Zimmerman. Martin didn’t wanna be dissed especially with his girlfriend on the phone. He had to be a man.)
The investigator, Trekelle? Why does the media not have this guy on talking about the senseless killings?
There needs to be some kind of martial law. But only where the problems are. Make the kids go home by dark and arrest all those who aren’t.
Young man who was shot must be white - which doesn’t count with the DOJ.
You hit the nail on the head! No need to do that if the checks keep rolling in.
Had mom imposed a reasonable curfew on a school night, I doubt Jamison would have encountered the same fate.
Nope, the young man is black, and has himself identified the shooter as black.
The problem is with the black community, which holds that an innocent black victim is worthless if the perp is black, but the most vile black thug is the most valuable person on the planet, if his intended white victim manages to turn the tables.
The DOJ policy is "snitches get stitches".
With due regard for my incipient paranoia, it does seem like a coordinated effort to start race war ahead of the election.
Crime doesn't pay.
Traffic violators do!
It's Ebonic for "omerta".
Two incidents, both around 2am on weekdays. Doesn’t anyone sleep anymore? Don’t people have to get up to go to school or work anymore?
True but they have time for the unOccupied crowd.
But I guess the unOccupied benefit some political agendas— so the police must babysit at the pleasure of these politicians?
What do taxes pay for? Nothing is ever used for what it is intended.
Sad state of affairs....
In fact, crime in Manhattan is very low compared to a couple decades ago. Chicago, though, is another story...
They were involved in some of Clinton’s midnight basketball games!
The problem is, they will not teach their kids not to smack the crap out of others when they get mad, because that is what THEY THEMSELVES DO when they get mad.
I believe the only policy left to deal with the blacks in this country is containment while they murder each other off. As a general group, they are extremely violent, they believe their anger allows them to murder other people without punishment, that any questioning of them is racist harassment and requires physical retaliation, and they are entitled to everyone else’s money via government redistribution and flash mobs stealing everything in sight from stores is totally okay for them to do. And they are continuing to teach their kids it’s okay to do.
Black on black crime. I’m not supposed to notice it lest I dis someone. Kinda like blacks calling each other ‘nigger’, but I cant join in on the fun because I’m not one??
Its not that I dont care but I have been left with little choice.
That is the kind of statement that will be repeated outside the context of the discussion as an example to prove that FR is a racist forum. Though it does apply to a percentage (probably a substantial percentage) of the black population, tarring all with the same brush is no more right than "Reverends" Jackson/Sharpton/Farrakhan/Wright potraying us whites as the devil incarnate.
Regrettably, the black community has not been taught the old saying "if the shoe doesn't fit, don't wear it".
In my neighborhood, Hispanic kids with knife wounds show up at the hospital ER almost every weekend. Sometimes, their friends just dump them in the parking lot and leave. They very rarely “know” who stabbed them, or why, and getting the right identity for them is always problematic. When they die, though, there's no shortage of family members claiming little Juan was a good boy who never had any involvement with gangs.
When they die, though, there’s no shortage of family members claiming little Juan was a good boy who never had any involvement with gangs.
This morning his father, John, told Today he didn’t agree with the gang’s defence lawyers, who claim they were good boys who made a mistake.
He said: ‘It sounds like they’re making excuses and trying to make light of the situation. It wasn’t like they were a group of kids that went out and did some property damage - they almost took someone’s life.’
I am reminded that Noah Webster in 1833 noticed: There are two powers only, sufficient to control men and secure the rights of individuals and a peaceable administration; these are the combined force of religion and law and the force or fear of the bayonet.
In 1849 Robert Charles Winthrop in a speech before the Mass. Bible Society expounded on what Mr. Webster had taught-
Men in a word must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them, or a power without them; Either by the Word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.
As a people we were once understood to be both Moral and Religious. And George Washington and many other recognized the fundamental principles of Religion, Morality and Knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind. (Twice codified in the Northwest Ordinance)
What we have seen in the these reports from the Presidents own City of Chicago (where his political aspirations were honed) is evidence of what we as a people chosewhen we decided to accept a secular nation and rejected the religion and morality President John Adams said our Constitution was made only for. When righteousness rules the nation is happy.
This really struck home with me. With the loss of GOD in the hearts of Americans, we have become no more than animals, only fit to be controlled like the animals we have become. This is what the left knew and why they have pushed so hard to remove God from America. What's left is only fit to enslave and control (to their benefit). We had been warned, and didn't heed, so now we face the fruits of our indifference and inaction...
I said as a general group. There are exceptions of course. But generally speaking common sense and crime statistics validate a containment course of action because they are self-destructing as a race. If they would actually try to change things instead of blaming everyone else for their self-inflicted problems I would suggest a different alternative.
In the late 80’s and early 90’s I worked with a guy that owned a repossession company in southern California.
We repossessed a lot of cars in the Watts, South Central, Boyle Heights and Whittier/La Puente areas. We are both white so just going into these neighborhoods at night was risky.
We would scout the area for the car we were looking for. If we found it we would go find a restaurant to wait at until 3-5 AM. Then it was safe to go get the car. We got paid $150-300 per car, (depending on the finance company we were working for), and on a decent weekend we would repossess up 20 cars.
We had a few close calls, but our SOP was that it was not worth getting hurt to repo a car, so if it got dicey, we just left. We could always get it on another day.
You are right, but when it is repeated as an example of racism those parts will be omitted. And darned few of those who see it will search up the original looking for context.
The old racial double standard is alive and well, unfortunately.
