Mom gunned down outside hospital (Brooklyn, New York)
NY Post ^ | 12/11/12 | JESSICA SIMEONE, REUVEN FENTON and DAN MANGAN

A Brooklyn mom of three was fatally gunned down this morning by a passerby as she stood right behind Brookdale Hospital -- where her 8-year-old daughter was undergoing treatment for an asthma attack.

The apparently motiveless killing stunned the family of 32-year-old victim Shalema Gaskin -- and left them demanding answers about why someone targeted her.

"This is a hospital!" said Tanya Gaskin, 50, the victim's mom. "We come here for help -- not to have our people killed right outside."

Apparently gun control didn’t prevent this murder.

Paging Bob Costas.

Didn’t the same thing happen in Manhatten yesterday?

Unprovoked, shot to the back of the head.

She’s 32 with an 18 year-old. Why is this not surprising?

Unprovoked? Possibly but from what I’ve read, he had plenty of enemies.

If you are really interested in the answer, visit a social ministry some time and look at the statistics of the number of single black mothers.

There is an entire generation of black kids growing up that has no idea what it is like to have a normal family life with a father as head of the household.

I believe that it is time for Michelle to say something about this dire situation, but she won’t. The problem is above her pay grade.

The apparently motiveless killing stunned the family of 32-year-old victim Shalema Gaskin... In addition to Saniyah, Gaskin left behind two other daughters -- an 18-year-old and a five-year-old.

Do the math, she had her first kid at age 14, possibly impregnated at age 13.

Its called terrorism, and is used to break the will of the people. It does not need a named source, just a realization that every day you leave the house may be your last.

After a while you become rather pliable.

Don't think that the present administration is unawares. They have been breeding this environment for years. If first you add dependency then you add stress, the sheeple will cluster around you begging you to do what ever it takes at what ever the cost to make the sheep dog go away.

Hitler used the same principle with the SA and the SS. First step, a little State corn, then put up the fence, then bring in the butchers for all the little piggies in the pen.

Our government is just makin bacon.

So, the article mentions “the child’s father”, not the victim’s husband. A very sad situation underlying an unfortunate killing.

sorry!

I should have read the rest of the article first...

“...She was rushed into the hospital, but later died there. In addition to Saniyah, Gaskin left behind two other daughters — an 18-year-old and a five-year-old.

I believe that the upcoming investigation will reveal that she held a 32oz soda in her right hand.

You need say no more. Sounds like a problem peculiar to a particular culture.

She worked for immigration services for a while, it said. This could have been a revenge hit from some illegal who’d been watching her.

I’m guessing a gang hit on whitey. Black thug racism. They are “progressing” to white women the last couple of weeks.
