I'm originally from the area, but I've moved away. What irritates me is everyone, for miles around, knows about how Raywick is. You can call it environment, atmosphere, culture, whatever... But this area has been this way for longer than any of us can remember. Yes, times across the nation have changed, people are expected to think different, but there is also a thing called self-preservation that everyone is entitled to use.
If you aren't from the area, regardless of color, you can't act just anyway you want. I've moved around a lot growing up, my accent isn't consistent with country, Marion Co. natives. I've been treated with suspicion just for the way I talk. Quote; "You sound like a Yankee." Once genealogy is established, I've been good to go.
I'm not going to say he got shot because of his skin color, I'm not going to say he didn't. But I'm willing to bet he wasn't considered a local, in which case, his self preservation should've kicked in and told him to practice restraint.
I'm not ambivalent enough to wander into a downtown Louisville corner bar, or a Bronx pub, or an Oakland Raiders game (wearing KC Chiefs attire) or anywhere, and start acting surly, arrogant, and troublesome, leading to a fight and expect my evening to go peachy keen.
Treat others as you want to be treated, that goes for the guy who got shot, the unfortunate one who pulled the trigger, all the other ones involved/witnesses, & all the crazy people who post on this site (self included). We were given brains for a reason & most of our mammas taught us manners and respect... Use them people!
i totally agree with this. Its what i tried to say but u did a better job of it. Martin luther king was shot making a stand and this guy shoulda known better than to make a bold move as to run over araywick bar. Ii have the same issue with society im very different myself. But the corner bars n llouisville rnt that bad for real lol go to cahoots n the highlans everyones very acceptable there. And cheap wells

"OUTSIDE APPERANCE"?? Are you serious, YOU ever go to a job interview?? Damn, What am I thinking, NO, YOU collect a gov check..
Appearance (spelled correctly, or Appearance for you dark folk lingo), MEANS A LOT. Now lets' say that I was going to hire a waitress at my Restaurant, and some lady came in looking like a beautiful actress from hollywood, and a man looking like Charles Manson. hhmmmm, who to hire???? Maybe I should get to know them.......NOT!!!
You dress like a thug, YOU gonna get treated like a THUG!!
Pull them pant's up BOY
not only dress like one but act like one. I couldnt have said what u said any better. It coulda happened if the boy was white. Its all n how u act. Ur actions speak louder than words and i have to say they have a loot to say. The thing is no one can understand what the hell they r sayin lol i said before idk what happened but i feel very bad for the family but on one of their comments they said theyll come to the ppls doors who r runnin their mouth and show them what happens when u run ur mouth. So its hard not to believe he was an innocent bystander just trying to help the raywick community by breaking up a fight. We r a product of our messed up environments. Ha ha hello we re not as dumb as theyre sayin us cuntry folks r. They think they have an argument that someone who is trying to change their life by taking a cuple college courses is evident reason and cause to call it a racist murder......

pedro, how sad it is to hear a brother talk so negeative about another brother someone has lost their life. And im sure you wouldn't feel the same if it was your family remember all the stuff your talking about David, were you that bold when he was alive or did he scare you too. That's why you talking down on him. He must have spanked you or either had your girl. Because you have to much hate towards him for just tring to be a so called thug. And what club do they let you hang out since your part black and latin. I know you dont hang in lebanon surely not since every race should segergate themselves. And oh by the way last i heard if you have any black in you thats what society classify you as a black man. So look in the mirrow. Bro.

Yes quite frankly you dont know fucking shit! That "thug" had started taking college classes, that "thug" was actually trying to get his life together & HE MEANT IT! And there has been black/white people we dont know that was out there to say he didnt start shit. & I swear I wish I could trace the IP address myself to all who "think" & "amuse" his mouth got him in trouble. So we the family can all come knock on your damn door and let you see how badly our family is grieving & to tell us personally yourself what
the hell you think & show you prime example of how your mouth can get you in trouble. Nobody can never get past someones history and look forward to what they are trying to succeed for the future.
Just look at that thugs Facebook page and then try to pass him off as a good person! F'n punk azz gangsta wannabe got what he deserved!

Well I literally watched him kill a dude at a party, and the guy was brought back to life luckily, I don't think this had anything to do with skin color, if you new him you know he was a punk, it's still sad at he got killed.

Anyone who says he was shot because he was black is a racist. Regardless, after all that's happened in ray wick the past couple months, he shouldn't of been down there and DEFINATELY should not of been breaking up a fight. I'm a white man with a black wife, and we have two children. We are all idiots to think there is no racism in the world, however, the racist ones are the uneducated ones, and the most judgmental ones. Nobody ever deserves to die, but
When you have a bad history, and you go to a place you shouldn't be and are in the middle of somethin you shouldn't be, bad things will happen. Young black men now and days act like fools!!! I love rap music, always have, but the pants hangin off the ass, the t-shirts hangin to the knees, the dumbass slang and language, it's all uneducated and makes you look and sound like a bunch of clowns!! All my wife's family including herself agree! The African culture is nothing like that. So quit using the excuse you do it because its your culture. Start wearing clothes that fit, talk like you got some sense, quit actin like you can beat up everyone if you can't fight with your fist and fight one on one. These young black guys wanna jump people and pull out guns when their "boys" aren't around. The only true man fights with his brain, and his fist only if he must. So cut the bullshit, go to school, get educated, and make somethin for yourself. Anyone tryinh to rebuild their life doesn't need to be in ray wick at a bar in the middle of a fight. Prayers to his family, but shame on these young generations.

If David shot someone at a party, the karma caught up with him. And if anyone just looks at his Facebook page, it's clear he was a thug wannabe and lived a life of wannabe gangster. I was trying to be civilized on my first comment, but after seeing his Facebook page, he clearly lived a life that led to the end of his gangster wannabe ways, so he got what he woulda wanted, to go out like a "gangster"
hmmmm

David is not going to rest in peace until that bar is shut down, aside from them being racist haters the bar is disgusting, i wouldnt piss in that bathroom to save my life. And they have Bouncers for certain reasons, to try and TALK the situation down if that doesnt work, you CALL THE POLICE, which prob didnt happen until AFTER someones life was taken. that piss poor excuse for a Bar owner Chris Gribbins needs his bar license revoked or something for running a Nasty Racist bar. And choosing to let a fight escalade into someone getting shot rather than just callin the police.

If people would act like they have some sense, they wouldn't need bouncers in the first place.

heard someone's tires got shot up down there last night. Why is this place STILL allowed to be open? And for anyone wanting to know I am white person. I didn't know Mr. Litsey personal but, it's a damn shame that a place like this is allowed to stay open when a person life has been taken.
