Great. So now another business falls victim to crime. How long have they been open? Years! And prior to that was Rosies...also open for years!!!! Now any bar that may open there has this as part of it's history. I have to research this...but I think that rap concerts in The Roc have notoriously been riddled with major crimes.

Hate to say it, but this is why many venues are afraid to host hip-hop events. Because shit like this happens. I wish many black people, esecially the young generation can go and have a good time and learn to love one another.

And stick together. We've come a long way for us to be taking lives over senseless stuff.

Many of the young folks today have no concept of what "battling" means pertaining to RAP. They took it literally, how sad and misinformed.

I know, I wish they knew how to have fun, instead of trying to best the next person.

Police report that at 2:30am a young life ended during a shooting at the Bug Jar Bar in Rochester.
Unidentified witnesses reported that a scuffle broke out when two Kneegrows were fighting either over a ího or a drumstick afer a rap concert at the establishment. Shots later rang out as the confrontation moved out into the parking lot where the unidentified victim lost his life.
"He was like a brother to me" stated DeShawn Franklin, who was the victims oldest son out of eight children. "He was a couple of grades behind me, but I would see him on the playground at my school selling drugs almost everyday - and if I didn't do my homework, he would threaten the teacher with a knife. He taught me alot about life. Starting when I was about 5 or 6 he used to come into my room at night, reach into my underwear and fondle my junk. He said to me, "Son, this is gonna happen to you alot when you go to prison - so get used to it". I never forgot that....
The principal of the school which the victim attended reports that he enjoyed sucker-punching smaller kids at the bus stop, and always had a quick smile while he took other student's lunch money in the bathroom. He further added that the victim was voted "Most Likely to be Convicted of a Felony" and also "Most Likely to be Tried as an Adult" by his 6th Grade Class. He was quite popular with the older kids in school because he was over the age of 19 and he could buy liquor for them in exchange for stolen TV's or sexual favors".
His basketball coach fondly remembers that the victim was "usually drunk or high" during practice and would often threaten to shoot the referee or opposing team's coach if his team was losing. "He was always ready to pull out his gun and start blasting if he didn't like the Ref's call" Coach Powell said.
Paramedics who reached the scene several hours after the shooting was reported indicated that they saw a "young black male wearing a Hoodie" laying on the ground. "I saw that he was shot in the head" said one Paramedic. "So I thought, no big deal. These bucks can usually take a Bazooka round to the noggin and still get up and rob a liquor
store no problem. But then I saw that a bullet might have grazed him near the groin area and I knew he was a goner...." After remaining on the sidewalk until nearly sunrise, the victim finally stopped breathing. "We had to poke him with a stick a few times to make sure he was really dead. It sure as hell took that buck a long time to die - once they get hit in the nuts they usually go pretty quick" the Paramedic continued, "I was getting worried - I mean, we sure as hell didn't want to administer CPR. Who knows what kind of diseases he could have had but at least he went to the sound of jungle music."
The victimís mother was convinced that the death was a police 'coonspearsee'. "He wuz a gud boy. He beez turning his life around and was 'bout to makes a Rap CD or goes to astronaut skool- who woulda done him like this?" Blubbering and wailing, his mother demanded to know "Who was going to pay fo' all of dis?" and asked for some money to buy cigarettes and booze. "Oh Lawzy, I'm gonna get muh GROOVE on tonight!" she exclaimed.
Funeral arrangements are unclear at this point, but the family has requested donations of "40's, blunts, and KFC" in lieu of cards or flowers. "Dat muffugah dead - what in tha' hell he gonna do wit' flowers?" the victimís great-grandfather, age 31, was quoted as saying.
Good writing! Pretty much brought a tear to my eye!

The family of a man fatally shot outside a popular bar over the weekend is angry and looking for justice.

Family members say Deavoughn Hernandez-Ruffin was the father of an 8-month-old daughter, and a peaceful person whose interest was having fun- not fighting.

Sunday night, Hernandez-Ruffin found himself in the middle of an argument at the Bug Jar on Monroe Avenue. After the group was forced out into the street, Hernandez-Ruffin was shot and later died.

Hernandez-Ruffin is from a big family. He was one of 30 grandchildren. His family wants people to remember him as someone who loved music, wrote poetry and most importantly, was a peacemaker.

"He was a good kid, and I believe if he had stayed alive he would have been an excellent young man," Frances Ruffin-Scales says of her grandson.

His brother, Deishawn, says, "He was a goofy, joyful, partying dancing...he liked to have fun....he did a lot of music. He wrote a lot of songs."

Family members say Hernandez-Ruffin's ambition was to be the world's greatest dad. Ironically, he was gunned down the night of Father's Day.

"He just became a dad, so now his daughter going to have to grow up without a father. So whoever did this should like think in their mind-'I took her dad away from her'," Harmony Alexander says about her cousin.

Hernandez-Ruffin's family members are angry and still in shock, and want justice.

"I didn't think I would end up burying my brother at a young age. It's hard for my family," his brother Elvis Hernandez-Ruffin tells News10NBC.

His aunt, Debra Jones, says she's disappointed. "They know young people, they know how they get down...why they couldn't have security around the little place, especially a rap. Come on."

Hernandez-Ruffin was also a student at MCC. Police say they haven't determined if he was the intended target of the shooting.

No arrest has been made yet.

It's a huge shame for anyone to be murdered, and for a young child to lose a parent. But why is it that when a black is killed, he is always the nicest and fun loving person that there ever was. Also why do blacks always look to blame someone else (Bug Jar) when one of their own is murdered? Do blacks ever think to act in a civilized way and not like wild animals? Can they ever settle a dispute in a peaceful way? They could have had 100 security people at the Bug Jar, and the murder still would have happened. Blacks have to blame themselves not the white establishment. Act like humans and more of your people will stay alive. It really very simple.

This person is the queen bitch. Evil snd hateful of whites that can be. RFCBF and Morality and HaHa are 3 of her biggest supporters.
