Default Jasmine Barnes' shooting turns out to be black-on-black crime

https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...=.734a2c788952

Lots of political activists like Sheila Jackson Lee had made this out to be a racial case of a white person being the killer.
Wonder if they will be called out in the media for racial profiling and using black privilege to have jumped to the conclusion that the killer was white?

The break in the case comes one week after Jazmine was killed in Houston while riding in a car with three sisters and her mother, LaPorsha Washington. A gunman opened fire on the vehicle about 7 a.m. on Dec. 30, injuring Washington and fatally wounding Jazmine while causing glass to rain down on the girls.

...Alexis Dilbert, Jazmine’s 15-year-old sister, told ABC 13 in Houston after the shooting that she saw the shooter’s face. Washington told reporters that the shooter was a white man with blue eyes who was so skinny that he looked “sick.”
So a black man killed her daughter, and she has the f**kin' nerve to LIE to reporters and claim it was a white man...

May all your dreams come true.

Never mind the description of a Negroid attacker who had blue eyes, white skin, and so skinny that it made him look sick, eh?

I'm not sure if your post was sarcastic or not. But regardless, if this had been a WHITE family who implicated a black person (even if by account from a grieving wife), and it turned out to to have actually been a white shooter instead, you and I both know the media would be playing it up right now as a case of racial profiling and spinning it with a racist angle on the part of the family or their supporters. Yet they are silent here. Maybe she "saw" a white person because she had been taught all her life that white people are bad, or some other racist undercurrent. Maybe the rest of the family and supporters should have reserved judgement until better evidence came along. The point is, the racist card is the sort of thing white people get tarnished with when this sort of thing happens on the other foot. There's a double-standard.

So Sheila, the chick who tried to make this case out to be a hate crime (white on black) despite no evidence, motive, or a suspect in custody, had a chance to apologize and take back her race-baiting comments.

Of course, as y'all guessed, she refused and stood by her tasteless race-baiting.

Texas Democrat Congresswoman stands by remarks suggesting Jazmine Barnes’ killing may have been ‘hate crime’

A Texas Democratic Congresswoman is defending her earlier comments suggesting the drive-by shooting of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes may have been a hate crime, even though both suspects in the case turned out to be black – and not a white individual as police and members of the public initially believed.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, when asked Sunday by a reporter about some of the comments made in the aftermath of the young girl’s death in Houston on Dec. 30, said it was “absolutely not” irresponsible to make that suggestion.


Barnes was shot and killed while sitting in the backseat of her mother’s car. Witness descriptions of a white man in his forties at the scene of the shooting – and a sketch put out by police – prompted widespread speculation a hate crime had happened.

“I believe – and having written hate crime legislation, knowing the criteria, I believe that this should be looked at as a hate crime,” Lee said during a press conference Friday, in a video posted to the Congresswoman’s Facebook page. “We don’t want to have on the street someone who is willing to kill children and possibly kill them in the name of hate."

The next day, at a rally calling for justice for Barnes, Lee said “do not be afraid to call this what it seems to be — a hate crime,” according to several news organizations.

Prior to the arrests, Barnes’ family lawyer, Lee Merritt, also said “we do believe that it [the murder] was racially motivated in part because our nation at this moment is highly racially charged.”

Yet both suspects in the case are black, police confirmed to the Associated Press on Monday.

One of them, 20-year-old Eric Black Jr., has been charged with capital murder and is making his first court appearance today. News of his arrest emerged Sunday.

Moments after police announced Black was in custody, Merritt wrote in an Instagram post that a second suspect, Larry Woodruffe, 24, was arrested in the shooting. Woodruffe is believed to be the shooter in the incident, according to Merritt, although police as of Monday have not confirmed the arrest, his identity or alleged role, the AP says.

The reporter on Sunday asked Lee: “Do you feel it was irresponsible at all to suggest that this was a hate crime when we didn’t have all the facts?”

Her response: “Absolutely not, nothing is irresponsible when it comes to the loss of a precious 7 or 8-year old."

She added: “The good thing was that in the comments that were made, there was no hysteria, there was no encouraging individuals to go out and find that person. It was nothing but orderly respect for the rule of law allowing our law enforcement to be able to do their tasks. And then now to call for an understanding that any violence against a child should not be the norm and that we should stand up against all violence.”

Investigators believe the killing appears to have been a case of mistaken identity “where the intended targets were likely someone else,” Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Sunday.

“This death has sparked a lot of discussion on many different levels,” Gonzalez also said. “We know that there is an important discussion that does need to take place about race, about the real fear and concerns that hate crimes are in an uptick across this county. We also need to talk about gun violence.”

Fox News’ Katherine Lam and Dom Calicchio contributed to this report.

Who cares if ya publicly named the wrong suspect all in the name of race-baiting. Race-baiting is far more important than facts. Who cares if a dude and his family's lives are bein' threaten. Better to scream out, "Hate Whitey!" than get it right.

Don't ever try and tell me libs aren't the most racist peeps in America. Can ya imagine the backlash if a conservative public figure falsely named a black man responsible for a murder? Holy ball-crust they'd be screamin' "racism" at the top of their partisan lungs.

Family of white man accused of murdering 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes gets death threats after activist Shaun King wrongfully names him

The family of a white man wrongly accused of murdering a 7-year-old black child has revealed that they are receiving death threats in connection with the allegations.

What are the details?

On Dec. 30, Jazmine Barnes was gunned down on a Houston freeway near a Walmart while in the car with her family. The Houston Police Department ruled Jazmine's death a homicide, and early indicators on social media said that the shooting suspect was white.

Two men were charged in connection with the child's murder, but both of them turned out to be black — not white, like activist Shaun King initially claimed, in what he suggested was a racially motivated crime.

Police even released a composite sketch of the likely suspect — which was clearly a white man — based off of witness accounts.

Robert Cantrell was the man King pointed to on social media in a since-deleted post, writing, "We've had 20 people call or email us and say he is a racist, violent [expletive] and always has been. Just tell me everything you know." King also shared a photo of Cantrell.

Cantrell's niece, Hailey, told KTRK-TV that her family has received a plethora of death threats since activist King wrongly accused him.

"I hear [on social media], 'Someone is going to rape, torture, and murder the women and children in your family,'" Hailey said.


She continued, noting that she simply wants people with the wrong information to "back off."

"I just want everyone to back off," Hailey demanded. "The truth is out. It had nothing to do with us, nothing to do with my uncle at all."

Authorities reported that they don't believe the 7-year-old child's family was even the shooter's intended target.

"At this time, investigators do not believe Jazmine's family was the intended target of the shooting, and that they were possibly shot as a result of mistaken identity," investigators explained.

Anything else?

In May, King was under fire for a similar incident.

On Twitter, King publicly accused a white police officer of sexually assaulting and threatening a black, female motorist.

As it turned out, the police officer did not sexually assault the female, and dashcam footage ultimately proved that the woman made up the story, and lied to her lawyer and to King about it.

Before she did that, however, King and his cohorts whipped up the internet into a frenzy with allegations against the white police officer, who also received death threats as a result of the false accusations.


King eventually did issue a half-hearted apology for falsely accusing the officer.

Race baiters use race for every circumstance...

In reality, it's like a blindfolded person shooting at a dartboard...Every once in a while, they'll hit the board..and may even hit a bulleye...but most of the time, they completely miss the board altogether...
