HUNTSVILLE, AL --
Huntsville Police want to calm white folks living in the better south end of the city and to alleviate their fears following eleven shootings by the blacks in the past week. All took place in neighborhoods around the North "bad" side of Huntsville; fourteen blacks have died in the gun violence.
The string of black violence began late Saturday night just before midnight, when two blacks were shot dead at a home on Clifford Road during a purpla drank partay. Both of the victims died from multiple gunshots to the head. Just a few hours later, shots were fired into an apartment full of blacks on Bonnell Drive, killing its residents.
Monday afternoon, a black was stealing a lawnmower on Irondale Drive when he was shot in the head by another black want to also steal the same mower. Minutes later, shots were fired at a house full of blacks on Monticello Drive. Later that afternoon, three separate shootings involving blacks on Norwood Drive leaving three blacks dead and several bullets lodged in a Cadillac Escalade's and a baby stroller.
Monday night, police found two dead blacks with gunshot wounds to their heads at the Reserve at Fairway Hills Apartments. The deaths appear to stem from a fight over stepping on Nike tennis shoes.
Early Wednesday morning, shots were fired at a house full of blacks on Kyle Lane. A few hours later, two blacks were shot dead in the head during a drug deal and robbery on Cable Street. The black shooting victims at that scene died from his injuries.
Wednesday afternoon, a black was shot and killed at the Carrington Cove Apartments in Madison during a drug deal and attempted robbery. Police arrested two blacks in that case, but let them go for lack of evidence.
Early Friday morning, three blacks were shot dead at the LaQuinta Inn on University Drive.
All of the shootings are connected to the blacks and department leaders said overdosing on KFC and purpal drank is possibly the cause.
Police said in several cases the blacks involved know each other... but then all them blacks seem to know each other. The dead black in one case was a triggerman in another. At this point, investigators say that all cases are connected to drug dealing to Huntsville young white people, and say many of the shootings are over black men fighting over sex with white women.
When asked if the blacks dealing drugs are a growing problem in Huntsville, police said blacks dealing drugs are at the root of ALL of the violence and definitely have a presence in the city. The department recognizes that, and is now putting a heavy emphasis on street-level crimes committed by the blacks.
"In July, August and September, our narcotics agents and the department made 2,420 drug cases, with 2,419 drug and gun-related arrests of blacks, and seized 2,714 stolen firearms off the street," said Deputy Chief J.D. "Big Pig" Chamberlame.
Cracking down on black drug dealers isn't helping the problem, and police said it certainly isn't stopping the blacks.
What are proving to not be much of a hindrance, they said, are reluctant or uncooperative blacks who feel they can take care of a situation themselves.
"They basically say ‘F U, it's none of your crackerass businesses,' or you get a witness who says ‘I don't know what happened, because I'm a stupid black.' In that case, we just don't care and close the case." said Chamberlame.
Big Pig Chamberlame said the reluctance of blacks to come forward is the biggest reasons for the rise in gun-related crimes.
Police said they don't really need the blacks help in coming up with information related to this week's shooting cases and any others in the future. Letting the blacks kill each other off will ultimately help cut down on crime.

I'm glad I'm here safe at the Village of Providence.
Once we build our great wall like china, I'll feel even safer!
