Media Omits Race Of Suspects In MSU Murder

From the Starkville [Mississippi] Daily News:

Coroner rules MSU student death as a homicide

March 25, 2012

Mississippi State University officials say a person of interest has been identified and a weapon was discovered on campus following a fatal shooting at a university dormitory Saturday.

Area law enforcement agencies are searching for three suspects after John Sanderson, 21, of Madison, received multiple gunshot wounds shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday at Evans Hall.

Oktibbeha County Coroner Michael Hunt said Sanderson’s death was ruled a homicide and an autopsy is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Monday. Many other details into the investigation remain unavailable as police officers continue their investigation…

Shortly after the incident, investigators said witnesses and security cameras observed three African American males fleeing the scene. MSUPD then began searching for a blue, late model Ford Crown Victoria. It is unclear whether or not the suspects fled the scene together in the vehicle because Kibler said police are searching for a person of interest who was on foot and seeking transportation to Jackson.

Kibler said a firearm was discovered on campus after the event but would not disclose the type of weapon, its caliber or where it was discovered.

It is also unclear how the suspects, who were identified as non-students by MSU officials Sunday morning, gained entrance to the dorm

MSU President Mark Keenum said the entire Bulldog family is saddened by the tragic, isolated incident

Perhaps MSU will hold a vigil for the victim. Oddly enough, this local report appears to be the only one on line that mentions this detail.

Student shot to death on Mississippi State campus

March 25, 2012

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — A 21-year-old student was shot to death in a Mississippi State University dormitory, though the killing appears to be isolated and there is no indication others may be in danger, officials said Sunday.

University president Mark Keenum said Sunday in a statement on the school’s website that the killing of 21-year-old John Sanderson of Madison, Miss., was the first time a student had been shot on the campus. Keenum said officials could reveal few other details because of the ongoing investigation.

University spokeswoman Maridith Geuder said police received a call about the shooting at Evans Hall around 10 p.m. Saturday. Sanderson was taken to Oktibbeha County Hospital, where he died.

Three male suspects fled the building in a blue Crown Victoria. No arrests have been made

Not mentioning any description of the suspects, who are still at large, is undoubtedly just an oversight on the part of the AP and the rest of the mainstream media who have reported this incident.

By the way, to our mind the victim looks like he could be the son of former President Bill Clinton, if Mr. Clinton had a son.

    It is only “news” if the perp is white or thought to be white and the victim is black. Oh and let us not forget to try whitey in the media. This way street justice is meted out……….Front Page style.

      LD, you may find this of interest:


      The New Black Panther Party is offering a bounty for the “capture” of George Zimmerman, the man who fatally shot Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida last month. The bounty was orignally reported at $10,000.

      But Mikhail Muhammad, the southern regional leader of the Panthers, upped the ante to an anticipated $1 million, which he says “will come from the black community [including] athletes and entertainers.”

      More of Muhammad’s incendiary remarks:

      “We’re going to force our government to do their job properly. And if they don’t, we will.”

      “White America, we have given you 400 years to get it right, and you still have failed black people…we must declare to white America, time is up for you. No longer can you kill black children and get away with it…”

      While there may indeed be legitimate complaints against the Sanford, FL police department’s history when it comes to prosecutions (or the lack thereof) of violent crime against blacks. Nevertheless, Muhammad’s words sound more like murder for hire than trying to “capture” someone, not that the Panthers have any place telling people to go capture anybody.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      Rusty my friend, the D.O.J. is on this as we type. Herr Holder and his minions are chasing the white out of the person responsible.
      But it may take 2 more terms from King DingleBarry to even warrant a beer summit.
      Constitution be damned!!

    • Petronius says:

      This bounty is a call for lynching and murder.

      As such, Mr Muhammad along with his donors would be deemed guilty of murder as an accessory before the fact (one who procures, counsels, or commands another to commit a crime).

      They would all be equally guilty with the principals who actually pulled the triggers.

      Of course it’s all academic –– when you live in a banana republic, thuggery, brutality and craft count for more than the law..

    “Call it democracy, or call it democratic socialism, but there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all God’s children.”
    1965, MLK Jr., who I always hear was a Republican?

    So how’s that workin’ 4 decades out from the start of the Great Society and War on Poverty?

    Oh that’s right. The problem actually is Reagan and Bush43 only helped the rich get richer.

  3. GetBackJack says:

    Submitter is baiting me. Our MSM is obviously begging to set off a powder keg of racial war. Begging to.

    • tranquil.night says:

      Rush: “When the President doesn’t come in to quell this, we’re left to wonder why?”

      It isn’t too difficult to deduce for oneself.

      Occupy. War on women. Nothing’s worked yet.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Seems everything else was just a warm-up. War on women, Occupy BS, etc. It’s now clear to me that the race riots are just a dime’s-width away.

    • tranquil.night says:

      I know Jack vocalized it early that it was on the horizon. So did Pro. Still praying saner heads will prevail and that proper due process can follow through properly. Facts are coming out which are revealing how much the narrative had become distorted from reality. No clue if Zimmerman is guilty of something, but if he isn’t charged or is acquitted though, good Lord.

    • GetBackJack says:

      Tranq – I say this all the time, and perhaps too often, but when Jesus was asked “what will be signs of your return” one of the key elements he spoke to was nation shall rise against nation

      Nation, ethnos, Greek; a race, a people, often defined as a nation when all that race are gathered together into a polity.

      IMO – when race shall rise against race. And this race war someone is trying to ignite ain’t Godly, so it’s the Other Side pitting the men and women God created against one another to generate maximum pain, destruction, angst and fear.

      Id’ say Jesus knew what He was talking about.

      PS – one of the most perfectly executed movies of all time is The Devil’s Advocate starring Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves. It isn’t so much a first run box office film as it is an effing documentary

      The point here is that the devil didn’t do a single thing throughout the movie. He simply made suggestions and offers and people either acted of their own accord or not. The devil doesn’t make us do anything.

      He whispers

    • tranquil.night says:

      Oh snap, nice name drop. Going to have to rewatch that in context now.

    ‘Received’ gunshot wounds? As in; ‘he asked for them?

  5. canary says:

    Seriously, Not as bad as the liberal media in my state. They would never had said suspects were African-Americans.
    You very rarely ever know what a bank robber looks like.
    Look for a female with a scar on her face.
    Composite drawings of suspects are impossible to. I guess one was serious enough they actually mentioned he was an African America, but the composite drawing made him look like a white man.
    They don’t shade, and every one’s skin color is different. It’s just shading is not allowed.
    They freely say when a suspect is white, so when they don’t say the suspect is white, you know the suspect is a minority.
    It’s just as bad as when a child is missing or amber alert, I guess there’s some media law, they won’t even
    put a picture of the child on the media. They only describe which could be one of billions of children.

  6. Anonymoose says:

    Blink and this will all be gone, swept under the rug. We’ll likely never know what happened or who did unless you live in Starkville.

    Every time I see this dichotomy in news reporting or just in any public discussion about “race relations” I keep thinking of Jane Elliott–the woman with the “blue eye/brown eye” experiment and the person who was the “foremother” of workplace diversity training.

    To sum it up, she separates people by being brown eyed or blue eyed, and then declares one group to be superior and the other group inferior. The superior group is given extra privileges over the inferior group and the “differences” between them are emphasized. The “superior” group begins treating the “inferior” group poorly and boom–the “proof” that we’re all racists at heart.

    Yet what I see is an artificial division that is created and enhanced. Create the world as a liberal sees it and “proof” they’re right. So how to fix it? Do the opposite–create anti-stereotypes and always report the “bad” that has to be fixed and never acknowledge what doesn’t fit the script.

    So we have the mess we do now, blacks are always the poor and downtrodden, whites are the wealthy racist haters, white on black violence is an evil that must be outed at every chance, while black on white violence doesn’t exist.

  7. canary says:

    AP’s “…the killing appears to be isolated and there is no indication others may be in danger, officials said Sunday…”

    “officials” as in school officials?

    They are more dangerous now, probably officially a part of a big armed gang to back them up and give them more weapons and another car.

    Some endangered police “officer” shoots one of the minorities, then you will see the vigilantes and protests.

  8. beautyofreason says:

    Last week in my city a 26-year-old white female and mother was beaten up outside of a club, then shot execution style. The killer dumped the body in the back seat of her car. Forensics linked the murder to an older black male who claims that he was selling cocaine to the victim. Who knows but as of today, the news has scarcely mentioned this crime. There are very few murders here, usually black on black violence on the South side, so it was very strange that this crime was not broadcast everywhere. I had to do multiple internet searches to find it. There was no mention of the suspect’s race. It took even longer to get a picture of the perp.

    This kind of racial violence is everywhere but nobody talks about it. “Whitey” is apparently responsible for for these heinous rates of crime.

  9. canary says:

    Police, witnesses, back Zimmerman’s story he was beat to a pulp by trayvon.
    Black panthers put Zimmerman on their hit list.
    Witnesses say Trayvon was slamming Zimmerman’s head on the cement; Zimmerman on screaming for help on 9/11. Trayvon shot up close in chest.


    • GetBackJack says:

      Combat pistol tactics I learned include shooting a close in, hand to hand assailant, and shooting from a seated position in a vehicle. Both instances you shoot like this … hold your arm close to your side like you’re protecting your ribs, hand down level with waist and fire from this close in position.

      Most people train wrong. Perfect practice doesn’t make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect. Most training stops at a Weaver stance with weapon at arm’s length in front. You will get killed if you have to shoot an assailant from your drivers seat and your muscle memory training is to extend your arms into the window. Gotta learn to hold it close and hire from your waist. Same with close in hand to hand after you get your weapon in hand – learn to fire from the waist having just cleared your holster or belt.

      It will save your life.

      As it did Zimmerman.

    • canary says:

      I saw news Black Panthers Party offering 1 million dollars repeatedly to anyone that finds & catches Zimmerman.

      Do understand Zimmerman is not a wanted man by the police and the Black Panthers are trying to help,
      the Black Panthers have their own judicial system like Obama’s political friend Bill Ayers.

      No doubt Obama is now asking the Black Panthers for 1 million dollars in campaign money.

    “To Kill a Mockingbird”. Finally after years of novels and stories adult rated material a decent good classic. yeah. Then comes the BOMB dropped.

    Parents are required to do an assignment for their child’s required assignments over the novel.

    Questions for parents to write answers for.

    1. What was your financial situation as a child.
    2. What was the population of where your grew up as a child.
