White clerk defended himself versus three armed black men, yet the so-called "black community" is in an uproar about it. Should white people let armed black criminals shoot them in order to keep blacks happy, or should white community uproar be louder?

    People should be able to defend themselves against any criminal regardless of their color. The more of them that get shot the less the problem is going to be.

    The police have already decided it was a fair shoot. The father of the kid that pulled the gun...needs to shut up and stay home.

    Calloway and his criminal minded defenders need to be put away for a long time. In fact, his parents should be sued by the clerk for bringing up such a violent loser and causing him all this trouble.

    Then keep your damn son at home... 3 black youths confronting anyone would be scary.. what was the clerk to do.. punch him back? Then he would have been beaten to death and you know it. The olace was closeed , they had no right ot keep trying to get in.
  • Embalmer D Hanes 2012/12/20 23:49:57
    Racist. Haha - another right wing punk racist - God I love this!
  • RobHom Embalmer 2012/12/21 02:07:50
    I don't think it was racist...but also think the clerk should not have opened the door to argue....a call to 911 would have probably worked out better.
  • eyeballz RobHom 2012/12/21 07:02:07
    I agree , he should have kept the door locked and just ignored them ,they would get bored and go away , or he could have called the police and let them handle it .
    Both choices are better options for all involved ,poor decision making on both sides caused this !

    I'm not talking about the clerk or what he did, I'm talking about your statement of, "3 black youths confronting anyone would be scary.. what was the clerk to do.. "
  • RobHom Embalmer 2012/12/21 17:24:40
    Take a minute to think about this: Look at the scenario: Early AM hours, store clerk alone (wouldn't matter if he was black him/herself)...store closed, banging on door, acting confrontational when told no! Oh duh....I guess you would invite them in for "tea and crumpets".... Frankly...if it was three white guys, three chinese guys, or do you think I just made a Freudian slip? Think about the entire scenario....considering the neighborhood and the time.... Think maybe they were just looking for a bottle of "Big Red"....??

    By the way...a "racist" I am not....and if you accuse me of it...you're dead wrong.
    But then again...your opinion of me is "not relevant".

    Thats life, publicizing it just adds fuel to the fire.
  • tncdel JwonGalt 2012/12/20 19:46:34
    Till the fuel runs out, that is what must be done. Ignoring truth that is too ugly to bear only causes it to breed surreptitiously.

  • Ozzyboy JwonGalt 2012/12/20 21:04:09
    does that include the treyvon martin shooting? Or all the other minority on white crime that is not publicized?????
  • JwonGalt Ozzyboy 2012/12/20 22:31:31
    It means any shooting that goes through heavy publicity, Killings on minors(in age and race) are the more publicized.

    So yes, I will include Trayvon Martin, which I am still iffy about. The media painted a nasty picture of Zimmerman.
  • Ozzyboy JwonGalt 2012/12/20 23:22:07
    There has been a lot of minority crime, mostly black on white that has not made the media. A gang of blacks attack a white guy in Baltimore. The investigation was what did that white guy do to stir up those blacks. Crazy. Baltimore is one of the nastiest cities with Newark and Philly not far behind. Chicago is so far gone, it is already a foreign country and not included.

    To tell any man of any creed that he must lie down and take a beating in the midst of wrongdoing, I strongly oppose. There may be some in the black community that are in an uproar over this situation, but I personally don't agree with our young black man "getting theirs" by trying to take it from someone else. There are opportunities for jobs, there are opportunities to better ourselves, there are opportunities to provide for our families. For a short period of time I was working 2 jobs, and may end up going back to doing so because I am determined. We're all struggling. To form an uprising in times like these, over nonsense such as this, is honestly very embarrassing. If the black community wants to raise hell over anything, raise hell over the crime rate rising, teen pregnancy, high school dropouts. Raise hell over the negative statistics of our NATION. Get upset about our children joining gangs. Get upset over their acting out instead of problem solving. Don't get upset because a white man defended himself. I will note, I am a black female age 22, and I'm noticing the ignorance of the situation. Then again when raised to know the difference between right and wrong, learn to forgive and not fault the present for the past...

    Thank you. I just think its long past time to forgive and move on. It isn't like any of my white friends have wronged me, so why hold ages old hate against anyone?

    Everyone has the right to defend themselves against criminals.

    If the facts are as reported then, of course, the store clerk was in the right.
    One point: the article spouts some nonsense about people not being raised in the way of the Lord. It should be 'people not being raised in the way of the law'.
  • kevjon 2012/12/20 16:01:23

    Tell me if I'm wrong but didn't that white guy have a black guy in the store with him? It looked like he was behind him when he opened the door.
    I still blame Obama on all this racial tension, his calling the cops racists in his early stages of his presidency gave way to what is happening today. Add the defence of the black panthers armed with clubs in front of a voting area has also given them the idea that they now have a government backing their crimes. This is only going to get worse. The liberal media is also in on this by giving their narrow views leaving the viewer with a complete different interpretation of the incident, they love confrontation because it sells. I am only glad that I live in the country were we don't have to deal with this kind of violence.
