Just like this case here in Tusla, OK...where 2 men randomnley target citizens in their yards or while walking down the street...

Police probe possible racial motive in Tulsa killings - CNN.com

The men have been apprehended, arrested, jailed and charged...the law did it's job...

There's no need for Civil rights leaders to get involved...cause the Judicairy system worked...

Now had these two men just been interviewed by cops, and sent on their merry way...yes, then this story two would blow up into something big...

I think we have another case of the media misidentifying a white person to gin up the racial angle. This suspect England doesn't look white.

It seems his father was killed by a Black man while trying to break into his sister's home.

Quote:
A family friend, Susan Sevenstar, told The Associated Press that England was "a good kid" and "a good, hard worker," who "was not in his right mind" after losing his father and the January suicide of his fiancDee, with whom he'd recently had a baby.
"If anybody is trying to say this is a racial situation, they've got things confused," said Sevenstar, who described England as Cherokee Indian. "He didn't care what your color was. It wasn't a racist thing."
The Tulsa World reported that England's father, Carl, was shot in the chest during a scuffle with a man who had tried to break into his daughter's apartment. England later died.

The man would be serving a lot more time if what you said were true.

"On April 5, 2010, Carl England, 47, showed up at the apartment complex where his daughter lived with her boyfriend. The boyfriend had gotten into a fight Pernell Jefferson, 40, and had hit him with a baseball bat, the Tulsa World reported at the time.Jefferson, who had been in prison on drug and weapons charges, then tried to break into the couple's apartment but left, saying he planned to 'settle the dispute.'England and his daughter's boyfriend went looking for Jefferson at the apartment complex. When the found him, England hit him with a stick and knocked him to the ground. Jefferson pulled out a gun and shot England in the chest, the World reported, killing him."

Tell that to the 5 black people who were targeted and shot...and the 3 whom are dead...
(whom had absolutly nothing at all to do with what occured earlier to him)

If it wasn't 'racial'...then why didn't the shooter target 5 other Cherokee Indians?

It's like political correctness in reverse...

the guy targets 5 black people, but it wasn't 'racially motivated'...

Do people think we're stupid or something?
