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.

For black shooters there is a aura of invincibility because of the press. It is only going to get worse.

Where’s the skittles and AZ Ice T? If not for those items there would be no news. Product placement?

*** 2 a.m. Monday when someone inside a vehicle drove up behind him and opened fire.
*** 30 shots were fired at 2:20 a.m. Wednesday at a crowd of people

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?

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.

#1 - Zimmmerman DID call the police.

#2 - How about parents teach the little thugs in training not to start smacking the crap out of everyone when they get mad?

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".

Pretty sad watching this mother beg for people to come forward.People are too scared to talk but it is funny, Easter Bunnies can ticket people for no seat belt but a witness to a shooting can't feel safe.

With due regard for my incipient paranoia, it does seem like a coordinated effort to start race war ahead of the election.

I'm originally from NYC .... a few years ago we drove to NYC and went through Harlem about 5 in the morning.

Crime doesn't pay.

Traffic violators do!
