Posted on 03/15/2013 5:53:48 AM PDT by Kartographer
For the fourth consecutive night residents, police officers, and news crews converged on East Flatbush Brooklyn Thursday to take part, respond to, and report the outrage over the fatal police shooting of 16-year old Kimani Gray. Carol Gray told Pix11, Hes not the publics angel. But hes my baby. And he was slaughtered. And I want to know why. Even after the first shot, second bullet, why third bullet, why fourth bullet, why?
Grays mother seemed to acknowledge the negative characterizations of her son now swirling in the media.
Statements made by the NYPD that Gray was armed, his gun recovered at the scene and other media reports that the teen was an alleged gang member.

“Grays mother seemed to acknowledge the negative characterizations of her son now swirling in the media.”
Traslation: All the reports of my so being a gangbanging thug with a long criminal record, even at the tender age of 16 ARE ALL ACURATE.
so = son
What would it take for whites to riot? And what would they destroy? Probably not their own neighborhoods and businesses.
Why not? The whole point of the exercise is to make sure the little creep can't do any more damage.
If I thought this was a bad shoot I'd be all over the cops. I don't think this is one of those cases.
Now reap the whirlwind.
The way things are going it may not be long before we find out.
look, she still loves him and if there had been more opportunity for him to have a real job, maybe he wouldn’t have gone down the path he did. There is no opportunity in the city. The jobs for teens are now taken by adults whose job lives have been devastated by our huge unmanageable no debt problem. There is a lot of pressure on these guys to produce money from somewhere, caused by our culture’s sick emphasis on money and the wrong idea that everybody is a star. Obama contributes to it by acting like a nouveau riche conspicuous consumer. He probably has a little baby somewhere too and so the state is after him for child support. Selling drugs is a career choice, pretty much the only one in the urban areas. It is bad out there. I do not approve of the police shooting these kids, they should reach out to them and tell them there is hope not gun them down.
If whites “riot”, they/we are going after the politicians.
I am curious what the “white” tipping point is.
Has the dad weighed in yet?
Any day now.
Dad is on lockdown this month.
No one is forced to stay there.
Here’s a way to not get shot and stay out of poverty!
OK, here goes... it’s actually really simple.
Don’t do anything your “urban” culture encourages,
and do everything it discourages.
There ya go.
Good question but I have a feeling you know the answer already.
Yes, you are of course correct, the kid likely had either a deadbeat dad or a worthless dad. This is a cause for compassion, not hatred. The kid had many strikes against him, lived in the ghetto, had no part-time job, no dad, no one who loved him. What would you have done? How would you have turned out? Instead of being cynical and hopeless, start wrestling with how do we turn this devastation around? How do we teach men to think about something other than their own gratification and start to behave in the way a father really should, protecting and providing? This kid would likely have had a better chance if he had a father to protect and provide instead of being flung out to seek his fortune on the mean drug infested streets of some cold city.
well, that is about right, are you going to help or are you going to be part of the problem?
You don’t teach men to do anything, really.
You teach the women to not have sex with deadbeats.
