WE’LL SEE WHO CARES

By Pete Moore On September 17th, 2020

A black 17 year old Republican volunteer was shot and murdered in a drive-by shooting in Minneapolis three days ago. I’m not aware of any response from BLM. It will be interesting to see which media reports it and which ignores it. I suspect that BLM will stay silent. You can’t be black and Republican in their book.

  1. An awful, terrible crime however I don’t know why you think that such a drive by shooting would warrant comment from any political organisation or specific media outlets.

    We’re told that such anonymous violence is an everyday multiple occurance in the US?

  2. I hope that it wasn’t politically motivated.

    Not that anything would make this better.

    The gangs would know who’s been out and about the neighborhoods knocking on doors.

    I used to think that Minneapolis was one of the safe big cities, don’t think that now.

  3. They were campaigning against Ilhan Omar in her district filled with Somali refugees.

    They are looking for the truck and the shooters.

    Whether or not politics is involved will be determined by the evidence as it is gathered.

  4. According to Pete’s link above,

    According to the Lacy Johnson campaign and Minneapolis police, the shooting is not believed to be a politically motivated attack.

  5. if they haven’t caught the suspects how do they know, not accusing just asking…..

  6. ok they have caught one of them, but why aren’t they releasing a name ?

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis police say a man wanted in a fatal shooting of a teenager was arrested Thursday morning following a car chase through the west metro.

    At 6:49 a.m. Thursday, officers attempted to stop a vehicle operated by a person wanted by its violent crimes investigative division, according to police. The suspect did not pull over and instead attempted to flee the police, so officers began pursuing the suspect.

    Police said the suspect drove into Plymouth where he was eventually stopped and taken into custody. No injuries were reported during the incident.

    Details on how police stopped the suspect’s vehicle haven’t been released. However, an apparent collision took place, as video taken at the scene shows a passenger car and a police squad being loaded into separate towing vehicles. Minneapolis police confirmed that the suspect was wanted in connection to Monday’s fatal shooting on North Fremont and Dowling avenues. There, two victims — a 17-year-old boy and an adult male — were struck by gunfire outside a Super USA convenience store.

    The 17-year-old was pronounced dead at Hennepin Healthcare. The adult male victim suffered serious injuries.

    The Lacy Johnson campaign later confirmed that the two victims were members of its outreach team, but were not performing campaign duties when the shooting occurred. Both the campaign and police do not believe the shooting to be politically motivated.

    A GoFundMe has been established by the teen victim’s family, but his family asked that the proceeds go to help the family of the man who survived his injuries, but is “fighting for his life.”

    Minneapolis has experienced a surge in gun violence this summer. According to police, this year is on track to double 2019’s homicide total.

  7. If they haven’t caught the suspects how do they know

    I don’t know Pat. I’m merely stating what both the campaign & police are currently claiming .

  8. This is probably sadly just one of the mumerous black on black murder/shootings for the most basic and trivial of reasons that plague inner city areas both in the US and U.K. I doubt if there is anything as profound as a political motivation involved.

  9. Drive by’s are usually known why they occur. Drugs, gang rivalry, an ongoing dispute….

    no mention, just it’s not political….. and why haven’t they released the shooters name. If it was juvenile they would say so.

    It’s a weird story.

  10. Does Hillary Clinton have an alibi?

  11. Yes. She was with Obama meeting some Russians to talk about stuffing mail in ballots for Biden . The indictments will be coming very very soon… according to Patrick 😉

  12. Yep; I cannot wait for the headline to emerge, “Hardly anybody protested, burnt down stores, or trashed localities in peaceful marches; when young black man shot down; after it was disclosed he was a Republican.”
