It is definitely horrible for the people to be stepping over the body and pushing EMSA to get their food, but its also ridiculous that the business owners were still serving up food with a corpse laying on the ground in front of the pick up window!

What kind of sickos live in north Tulsa?

Still just appalled, amazed at the lack of human decency from those individuals that behaved the way they did that night.

I feel bad for this man's family. And for the man who lost his 18 year old son because of fools like the ones standing outside the chicken stand and firing the gun. Scum.

The Northside leaders/businessmen/clergy...e tc need to encourage people to tell what they know about any crime.

And, just importantly, need to explain to people how to act when a crime is committed. Do not get in the way of rescuers and treat officers/fire/EMSA with some respect.

Who would've ever thought that would have to be explained, but apparently it does.

Did we not learn anything from Dr. Martin Luther King? To respect another person is to respect yourself. No wonder North Side has problems with gangs and crime, the hundred or so people are scared of those bad guys. I think you forget sometimes who you are and what you mean to others....as well as our Creator...God help you, because you are not helping yourselves.
I think it is unfortunate that so many in today's black culture are ruining everything that MLK lived, worked, and died for. Decades ago the grandparents of today's black youth fought terrible oppression with steadfast determination to force whites to recognize and right wrongs that were occurring. Now that blacks have opportunities their ancestors could only dream of, many of them squander it. Very sad. MLK would be ashamed of today's black culture.

Police are in no position to complain about a "code of silence".
Their closed-knit, secretive society is among the worst offenders.

It's the pot calling the kettle black.

Kids don't have anything to do in Tulsa period. They never have. I never did. My friend's never did. Probably never will.

This story should read "One Person takes a Stand in North Tulsa against the No Snitch Mentality."

MLK would be ashamed, but Louis Farrakhan is not.

Stay classy north side.

The two things the criminals are counting on are Fear and it not my response ability to get involved so they can keep on doing what there doing. If everyone that was there that night wants to bury there head in the sand so to speak then its just fueling the fire to allow criminal acts to continue again and again. How many others will be victims until people say enough is enough, I guess only time will tell

Kids shouldn't have anything to do at 3:30am. They should have their butts home in bed. I don't think very many of those people were grabbing a bite on the way home from WORK. What the hell are they all doing at Chicken Hut at 3:30am?

Anybody thats out at 3:00 in the morning standing on the street is just waiting for trouble. These people do not have jobs. I have never in all of my years on this earth been out this late. I have no business being out that late. Then they watch someone get shot and run like dogs. What kind of people are they. My dad told me when I was a little boy anyone out after midnight was up to no good and over the years that has been proven right over and over again. But to step over a dying mans body to get some food is lows of lows. What a bunch of no good human beings. America does not need you in this country. You are nothing but slugs. This has got to stop. Whats wrong with you people. Go buy a one way ticket out of here and let the law abiding people live their lives. I know 95% of north siders are not like this, they are trying to live their lives in peace, but something like this puts a bad mark on the north side. I remember when Northland Shopping Center was a great place to shop, but look at it now no one is going to open a shop there and get shot for trying to make a living. This is not going to stop until the people there make it stop. SAD SAD SAD

Good luck with that...there is no way these low life animals will ever turn good and help each other, it's the jungle mentality...kill or be killed..they are destroying this town..someone needs to destroy them and get our town back.
