5th Night of Protests Planned in Brooklyn for Kimani Gray
NBCNewYork.com ^ | 3/15/13

Posted on 03/15/2013 1:02:28 PM PDT by Kartographer

Demonstrators planned to protest in Brooklyn for a fifth night Friday against the fatal police shooting of a teenage boy, who officers claim had a gun when he was killed.

No major clashes were reported on the fourth night of demonstrations Thursday in East Flatbush, after protests earlier in the week resulted in arrests, looting and minor scuffles with officers.

Carol Gray spoke publicly for the first time Thursday, choking up as she talked about her son, Kimani Gray, who was killed Saturday in a confrontation with police. Police have said the boy had a gun, but his supporters dispute that.

"He's my baby, and he was slaughtered, and I want to know why," she said.

This is awfully unchristian of me, but I hope they burn down that rat’s nest of a city.

The revolution has to start somewhere.

It sounds like the people are starting to lose interest.

“He’s my baby, and he was slaughtered, and I want to know why,” she said.”

Because he had a gun you brain dead twit. I would no more believe one word of his friends or witnesses than I believe anything that comes out of PPOSs pie hole.

I’ll answer you, Mom:

Your “baby” was a criminal and gang member who pointed a loaded weapon at two police officers, who were forced to shoot him to protect themselves and others.

Are there any more questions or can we move on?

Isn’t it interesting that the only time they come out to riot is when the cops shoot somebody. You never see them rioting when a thug with a gun shoots someone.

Perhaps we should just outlaw Black people from owning guns?

The gun murder rate would drop by 50%.

And there would be no reason to riot (oops, sorry, I mean “demonstrate”) in Brooklyn.

Of course, my theory assumes that gun control laws actually work.

Wonder if BO lent his “community agitator” expertise to these clowns? Maybe even his staple gun, so they can post agitation flyers around the “community.”

[Police released surveillance video of two of the convenience stores, where people are seen throwing fruit and stealing. In one, the cashier cowers in a corner as people loot the shop.]

These shootings always become a holiday for looters and arsonists. A common phenomenon is for the rioters to burn cars in their own neighborhood which makes little sense.

They do eventually. Almost the exact same thing happened in Detroit within 24 hours of this and aside from some complaints from the family there has been no real outrage.

One thing the media ignores: Gray thought those “civilians” didn’t have any guns there in NYC.

As long as the EBTs still work, that is...

I wonder how long before they “lose interest” when the “EBT famine” starts.

These people should be 'protesting' gang houses - - that's where the lowlifes who slaughter blacks live...

Is math taught in the schools?

Five hundred blacks killed by black gang members (crickets) - one black killed by cops ( days of insanity and rage)...

Correction: It would drop 75%, 95 if you include high-spanics.

Well, there is this sort of thing called a “drop” gun.

Not that that excuses what these clowns are doing.

Fifth night of protesting for this, and what of all the other killings perpetrated by gang members on a regular basis? Not a peep, right?

Just checking.

these little “protests” are not about what sounds like a JUSTIFIED killing.....its an excuse for the ferals to gather and maybe knock off a store to get free loot....

Well, Mom, it's this way. You failed to raise him with values that would have helped him make choices not to become a street thug.

Whooops! You just said the word black. That’s racist on another thread here on FR. We have a number of 30 IQ Free Republic Karl Rove RINO trolls here on FR who insist that if you call obuma black, you are a racist.

My spousal unit was singled out in university (ed. major) for using the term "black board" rather than chalk board. Curiously, they had no problem with the term "white board"

However, I find that terribly offensive (/s)

“Black”

Yes, a troll for certain.

Ironically, I've posted multiple times on the issue of why Obama claims to be Black when his mother was white.

That has always struck me as both racist and sexist.
