Also, there are criminals of all races. 

But there are far more criminals in certain races than in others.   Check the demographics of the USA population in general, then check the demographics of who is in prison.   It won't take you long to figure out which race produces the most criminals.

Meanwhile in the suburbs of Tampa...........hope he gets a jury of his peers.



Suspect identified in Tampa Family Dollar murder

TAMPA, FL -

Tampa police have identified a suspect in connection with the shooting death of a Family Dollar store manager.

Wednesday afternoon, Tampa police said they were looking for Demetrius Parks, 23. A reward of $16-thousand dollars has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Parks.

On Sunday, officials say the suspect walked into the North 40th Street Family Dollar Store and demanded money from an employee behind the counter.

49-year-old Horsley Shorter, Jr, a manager, came out from his office and ran over to help. Police said the suspect shot the manager before leaving the scene in the manager's car.

Police found the stolen car, belonging to the manager, a short time later.

The 26-year Army veteran died from his injuries.

Parks have been arrested 4 times since March 2012, following his release from Florida State Prison on weapons charges. Police said he has faced dozens of felony and misdemeanor charges. "He is a career criminal who is a threat to our community," according to Tampa police.

Also, there are criminals of all races.   The few pictured above can be followed with one from each race.

Do you think there are more black criminals or white criminals? Shouldn't there be an equal proportion to the population at large? While black people are so incensed about the single case, why don't they get incensed when "their own" are killing each other as in the case above?

did your nursing classes include a class in statistics? The basic point you are trying to make is not unreasonable, but you're watering it down by either not think it through or being intentionally obtuse

what the hell is wrong with this picture? Since leaving prison, more arrests but allowed to roam freely?

 BTW, this could have been Obama as well.

-------------------------------------------------------

TAMPA - Tampa police and the U.S. Marshals have arrested Demetrius Parks, the suspect wanted in the fatal shooting of a manager at a Family Dollar store in Tampa on July 14, officials announced today.


Parks, 23, was arrested in Orlando.


Police said Parks was robbing the store when he fatally shot Horsley Shorter Jr., who had retired from the Army, moved to Tampa to help his elderly mother and got a job as the manager at the store, located at 4900 N. 40th St.


Parks has been arrested for 37 felonies and 25 misdemeanor charges, Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said this week.


Parks has served three years in state prison on weapons charges. Since his release March 31, he has been arrested four times for burglary, grand theft, opposing an officer and being a felon in possession of a firearm, Castor said.

There’s no such thing as “black-on-black” crime. Yes, from 1976 to 2005, 94 percent of black victims were killed by black offenders, but that racial exclusivity was also true for white victims of violent crime—86 percent were killed by white offenders. Indeed, for the large majority of crimes, you’ll find that victims and offenders share a racial identity, or have some prior relationship to each other.

The argument you are making, like the article you link, doesn't make sense because both are arguing against an uncontested point. 

Of course there is such a thing as "block on black" crime, as the linked article says "94 percent of black victims were killed by black offenders." That is a lot of "black on black". crime.  The problem is your article goes on to argue against something that no one contends; namely that racial exclusivity doesn't exists for just black people killing black people. Duh?. Who cares? The point being made when some discuss "black on black" crime is not that it is exclusive, but rather that no one cares about it.  That is 100% true. If somebody gun down a 6 year old on her door step in my neighborhood it would be front page news, there would be outrage and all kinds of coverage.  But when that happens in Chicago, barely a mention, and any coverage ends quickly because much of the non-black community is dismissive saying 'it happens all the time." That's the point and an example of modern racism by apathy. One could certainly argue that African Americans need to get their own communities in line, but that doesn't change the fact that most white communities don't really care much SO LONG AS the violence and crime is not in the white community

It's not that "nobody cares".  IT's that if something like that happens in a black neighborhood it's "dog bites man".  If it happens in your neighborhood, it's "man bites dog".

No. It's not news because it happens too much to be news.  News isn't everyday occurrences.  Which this sadly is in many places.  And frankly, I think the media is afraid to look too deeply into why, because a lot of narratives wouldn't hold up under the scrutiny.
