This is probably going to be another Crackhead thug that needed 20.00 to get another fix or some thug who thinks killing a senoir citizen makes them a bad ass, I wished people in rockmart would start blowing these pieces of shit in half when they break in on them, I bet you'd see a decrease in this type of crime around here.
What's up with these thug idiots riding bicycles with red bandanas calling themselves the bloods?
Trying to be gangbangers?
Roll to a crawl in front of my vehicle like you own the road again and I'll show you some blood, about 3500 lbs of it

You run them down Shame and the rest of us will make sure they remain a blood/grease spot.

This is just sad. It's bad enough that killings are going on all around us, but to kill an elderly man? I hope they catch this douche-bag soon!

Bloods are Bloods, regardless of location.

Those that want to go from an "associate" member to closer to the hierarchy, will make a name by robbing, raping and or killing.

Dont make the mistake of selling them short.

Known gangs in PC:

Folk Nation, People Nation, Bloods Crips Latin Kings, Sur13. Probably more but I'm tired and cant recall all of them.

TO WHAT A SHAME , U R A SHAME. FOR UR INFO, I CAN ONLY SPECULATE, JUST AS U HAVE, THAT U ARE TRING TO SAY THE SUSPECT IN THIS CASE IS BLACK. AS USUAL RACISM PLAYS A ROLE IN THIS TOWN. THE THING IS YOU DONT KNOW SH*T ABOUT SH*T AND IS ONLY RUNNING UR TRAP. EVERY BLACK PERSON U COME IN CONTACT WITH IS NOT A THUG. SOME OF US GET UP EVERY MORNING GO TO WORK AND TRY TO MAKE A DECENT LIVING AND SOME OF US DONT. JUST AS THERE ARE DECENT WHITES THAT DO THE SAME AND SOME TRASHY WHITES. ITS THE SAME BABY ALL AROUND THE GLOBE.THERE ARE PLENTY OF KIDS IN THIS TOWN THAT PORTRAY THEMSELVES AS THUGS(BLACK & WHITE). BUT EXACTLY WHAT ARE U DOING TO HELP THE KIDS IN THIS COMMUNITY TO IMPROVE THE FUTURE OF THE YOUTH? NOTHING? BUT HERES ONE FACT, I RIDE BIKES AND SO DOES MY CHILD, IF EITHER OF US SHOULD SO DART OUT IN UR LINE OF TRAFFIC BY ACCIDENT AND U INTENTIONALLY RUN ONE OF OVER..YOU CAN CALCULATE MUCH MORE BLOOD THAN THAT IF I GET MY BLACK A** UP...WHAT U HAVE JUST POSTED WAS UGLY AND IGNORANT...SO THESE ARE MY TRUE COLORS BACK ATCHA'...IN SAYING ALL THAT KEEP UR EYES ON THE ROAD AND KEEP YOUR THOUGHTS MUCH PURER AND PRAY FOR THE REAL ISSUE AT HAND... AN INNOCENT MAN OF OUR COMMUNITY WAS MURDERED AND HIS FAMILY MUST LAY HIM TO REST AND HERE U R TALKING ABOUT RUNNING SOMEBODY OVER...IDIOT!

I thought this was a forum to write about James. How did it turn into a race war? Nothing was said about race until "wish U would" started it. Punks are Punks, I don't care what color they are. Should they be run over? NO. But they should be respectful, of course if they were respectful... they wouldn't be punks.

We have known James for over 20 years, bought his old house when he moved to Rockmart to be safer. He was always a good guy, loved to talk and tinker in his shop. James will be missed. For James to be murdered, someone really had to trick him and get the drop on him, he was street wise and was well protected all the time.
Let this be a lesson to all of us. Trust few.

You're right Marks. This IS supposed to be about James. But as usual here on Topix, people just have to insert their own agenda. It happens in every forum here.

I did not know James personally, but know folks who've known him all their lives. This is devistating to them. Personally, I just do not understand why ANYONE would kill an elderly man (or woman for that matter). Stupid, simply stupid. I hope they catch the person(s) and hang them for it. No one, absolutely no one deserves to be killed in their own home, but an old man? Heartbreaking, just heartbreaking.

I know, I keep repeating myself, but it just pisses me off. You're right.....trust no one

I just hope that the police do not put this over on the dead docket burner, since Mr Yarbrough had no family to push them to investigate and make an arrest.

MARKS THIS TOPIC REALLY WAS NOT MEANT TO BE A RACE WAR AND NOR WAS THAT MY INTENT, BUT THE UNDERLYING COMMENT AGAIN MY OPINION WAS TO SAY THAT A BLACK PERSON COMMITED THE CRIME, LETS BE HONEST ...JUST HOW MANY WHITE PEOPLE LIVE IN THAT VICINITY OF THE TOWN JUST BEFORE YOU GET ON UP MORGAN VALLEY ROAD? AND HOW LIKELY IS IT TO SEE SOMEONE ACTUALLY ON BICYCLES GOING UP MORGAN VALLEY? ON THE WESTSIDE JUST BEFORE UR A QUATER OF A MILE UP THE VALLEY, YES, THAT IS LIKELY. WHO LIVES THERE? BLACKS...BUT I THINK WE DO NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND PLEASE KNOW THAT THAT WAS NOT MY INTENT. ACTUALLY THE STUPID COMMENT THAT SHAME MADE DIDNT EVEN WARRANT A RESPONSE. AGAIN AS I SAID AT THE END OF THE POST, THE ISSUE AT HAND IS THAT WE HAD A TRAGIC DEATH IN OUR COMMUNITY AND I DIDNT KNOW HIM BUT HE WAS ANOTHER HUMAN BEING NO MATTER THE COLOR WE ARE ALL GODS CHILDREN. AGAIN MY PRAYERS ARE WITH HIS FAMILY.

HEY YA'LL cool it with the race talk.It's going to take all of us to stop this shit-since the cops can't seem to.I have heard that they have someone in mind but don't have enough goods on them yet.Hell-with having them in mind-howbout having them in JAIL.I agree somewhat with the comment on the "i,m gonna walk right in front of you and dare you to hit me"group.No color barrier there as a lot of young PUNKS in this town like to push that button-on purpose.Do that to me and I don't give a shit what color rag you got wrapped around your head-you'll need it for bandages.As for the race talk- we have some of the best people-BLACK AND WHITE here---and some of the dumbest.Ya'll lhave a nice day..

It makes me wonder where are the parents of these so called thugs. Maybe if they had some parents to set examples for them, they would have turned out different. But, again we have the case of turning the children out on the streets, without parents that care. Some of these so called thugs could have been changed with a good old fashion whipping like some of us use to get. But when the government starts telling you how to raise your children then this is the out come. There is a difference in spanking a child and child abuse.
