Two Whites Held For Shootings Five Blacks

From a breathless Associated Press:

2 held in deadly Tulsa shooting rampage; no charge

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Police arrested two men suspected in a deadly shooting rampage that terrorized Tulsa’s African-American community, and said online postings indicated one may have been trying to avenge his father’s death.

Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 32, were arrested early Sunday at a home in Turley, just north of Tulsa. Police identified both suspects as white, while all five victims in the early Friday shooting were black.

You can almost hear the joy in the reporter’s voice. The Trayvon Martin case has been petering out. So the timing here is perfect.

England and Watts, who have not been charged, are expected in court Monday. Police and the FBI cautioned that it was too early to say whether the attacks in Tulsa’s predominantly black north side were racially motivated.

But that won’t stop the news media or the rest of the race-baiting industry. (By the way, why is the FBI involved already?)

Police spokesman Jason Willingham said that based on Facebook postings attributed to England, a wish to avenge the death of his father might have been a factor.

In a Facebook update Thursday that appeared to have been written by England, he blamed his father’s death on a black man and used a racial slur. The posting said Thursday was the second anniversary of his father’s death. "It’s hard not to go off," given the anniversary and the death of his fiancée earlier this year, the posting said.

"It’s apparent from the posting on the Facebook page that he had an ax to grind, and that was possibly part of the motive," Willingham said. "If you read the Facebook post and see what he’s accused of doing, you can see there’s link between the two of them." …

A family friend, Susan Sevenstar, told The Associated Press that England was "a good kid" and "a good, hard worker," who "was not in his right mind" after losing his father and the January suicide of his fiance, with whom he’d recently had a baby.

"If anybody is trying to say this is a racial situation, they’ve got things confused," said Sevenstar, who described England as Cherokee Indian. "He didn’t care what your color was. It wasn’t a racist thing."

Uh oh. That is another complication. And one reason why the AP appears to be treading so lightly here. Having just gotten burned on their stories about a ‘white Hispanic,’ they don’t want to railroad a ‘white Native American.’

Let’s hope that he isn’t a registered Democrat, as well.

The Tulsa World reported that England’s father, Carl, was shot in the chest during a scuffle with a man who had tried to break into his daughter’s apartment. England later died. The man charged in the shooting is serving a six-year sentence on a weapons charge, according to Department of Corrections records

Six years for murder? And the son still didn’t think justice was served?

By the way, how many years did the perp get from his federal ‘hate crime’ trial?

    The running-dog media are having a problem
    with the shooter’s ancestry being Native American.
    Do they call him a “white Indian” or what. Anyhoo,
    that’s what I read about it. Perhaps the FBI can
    figure it out for us.

    This is going to go nuclear too:

    A black ex-con tries to break into an apartment, when confronted he goes to get a gun, the father arrives and hits him with a stick so the ex-con shoots him–and it’s justifiable homicide?

    And yes, they’re already saying “England has identified himself as Native American and white.”

    I’m really wondering if we’re not going to have outright riots by election time……

    So, they wait til the end and don’t say the color or race that shot and killed the Native Indian’s father.

    Is it implied a White African was the cause of his the Native Indian’s father?

    • canary says:

      Only 6 years for a White African for breaking and entering and shooting a Native Indian to death.

      The media is tip toeing over some, and slaughtering others.

    This is a conundrum for the media: If they are going to describe the murders of these two white blacks and want to include the motivation and facebook quote, they have to acknowledge that a white black murdered the father of the white indian.

    I guess this story doesn’t include any white hispanics, white asians, white polynesians, or white eskimos. I hope they keep it up with the race labels, pretty soon they will be as obsolete as the “racist” charge.
