From the lack of a murder charge apparent, will there be a claim of self defense?

What???? All three are convicted felons and all three had guns even though the law is very clear that convicted felons are not allowed to own or possess firearms of any kind? Surely they would not intentional disobey the law. Oh wait, yes they would because they are convicted felons and laws mean nothing to them.

Really? Did you read the same story I did?

-Kelvin Drake was charged with aggravated assault, criminal damage to property in the 2nd degree, possession of a firearm by convicted felon

-Manasseh Skinner was charged with aggravated assault, false report of a crime, possession of a firearm by convicted felon

-Keith Roberson was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon

Now unless they are fabricating the charges that tells me all three of the above mentioned individuals had guns and are convicted felons.

Hey, I just realized that a young black man was killed and we have not heard anything from Jackson or Sharpton about this tragedy or about the fact that the murderer(s) need to be prosecuted. Why do you think that is? Maybe because it is a black on black crime which they do not give a rat's butt about because there is no money in it.

The main difference is that all of the participants in this where in the wrong and (more than likely) involved in illegal activity. With Mr. Martin (I'm assuming his case is what you are referring to) he was totally innocent........ Sadly you are correct that black on black crime is committed more often (by ignorant african-americans) but that in no way justifies the MURDER of innocent Mr. Martin

Actually Truth101 I was not referring to the Martin case. I was referring to all instances where all parties involved were black. I cannot recall even one instance where Sharpton or Jackson said anything or flew to any area to raise a stink when all parties involved were black even if it appeared that the perpetrator would get off scott free in spite of some evidence to the contrary.

I would even go so far as to say that they have never showed up when a White, Hispanic, Asian or any other race was killed by a black person or by each other and the person doing the killing did not get charged with murder even when evidence showed there was the possibility of murder just not enough to make an arrest.

They only show up when it is a black person killed by a person of another race and that person of the other race is not immediately taken into custody and charged with murder. Does not even matter what the evidence shows happened nor do they tend to wait until all the evidence has been gathered. They immediately demand the head of the person who killed the black person.

Now, if you can direct me to a video or a story that proves me wrong I would be happy to retract what I have said.

Careful Y'all, you'll have people like TDuncan, Willie and others who like to defend these Street thugs and known criminals and think they are your classic school boys in here calling you racist pigs.

has anyone noticed that gang participatinon has gone up since the war against them. I suspect is has something to do with the publicizing of their actions that makes other gang members look up to them and commit the same crimes. Mr D.A. everytime someone gets in a fight or is shot its not gang related just ignorant ppl doing dumb stuff.

So is it appropriate to dress in stilettos when going to a gang fight now a days?

tywebb 1 year, 11 months ago

In addition to the guns, drugs, and booze being passed around......they were also passing the stiletto wearer around

That is probably how someone was torpedoed in the head.
