Yes, many were shot here in Indianapolis this week-end and a police officer is dead. Headlines this morning say 13 have been shot so far this weekend in Chicago. Terrible numbers. I used to have a good friend, Johnnie Cochran, who ran a little glass shop on the east side called Johnnie’s Glass. He was a traditional kind of small businessman. He lived nearby. Had five rental houses near his house and the shop. An old black guy with a great sense of humor, a kind of wisdom, and a strong work ethic. He had a lot of opinions. He hated sagging pants. Hated them. I hung out with him while he fixed a broken double pane window for me just before he was murdered in his shop by a robber who was never identified or arrested. This was not the worst neighborhood, a little east of Emerson and New York. I lived in Irvington just on the other side of Emerson. But Johnnie and I were a lot alike. Landlords. Small businessmen. Getting older. And he would have been the first to pipe up this morning that every person shot in Indianapolis and Chicago so far this weekend was shot by a black man. He hated that. Not a racist. You could never call Johnnie a racist. But a realist. And it saddened him. And he didn’t know how to fix it. But he wasn’t afraid to say things aloud if they were true. He thought nosy, concerned landlords helped keep tenants straight and he hated government Section 8. He didn’t think the city code enforcers had any business trying to run his property and he called them stupid snot nosed kids acting like nazis. He would have hated our worthless city council passing laws to make him register and inspect his property and pay their “fees.” And he would have cried a little over a dead police officer killed at 34th and Forest Lawn by a black man. He would have wondered aloud if the black man’s pants were sagging and if he was a member of a gang. Most people have long forgotten Johnnie. But I still drive by his old shop that stands just about like it always did, empty now, but full of memories and windows repaired by Johnnie but never picked up. And I wonder who killed him over ten bucks in petty cash and just walked away like it was nothing.

Blacks have their black unqualified Police Chief, That being Chief Hite. Democrats control the city council also. Look at the crime wave hitting Indianapolis since Hite was made Police Chief .The beefing up of minorities on the police and sheriff force. Things have gotten worse in race relations , Blacks have a black man as their President also. Since more whites voted for Obama than even blacks,. How does this hatred for white people still exist? This proves that most blacks don't want to get along with white people.Here was an example of a career black thug Obama son criminal was able to cheat the system after multiple arrests for drugs and weapons and assaults . Remember they're Messiah Obama and Eric Holder want lighter sentencing and those released for selling and doing drugs, Major Davis II was a prime example of what a mess liberal dems have created when coddling thugs.

Mr Johnny is one of few blacks that will actually tell the truth though. The few that do tell it lit it should be told to their own black people are often silenced by liberal media or the very same thugs in the hood.I have often seen black city leaders defend thugs and claim racism when addressing black issues in the hood. When rap gangster music was brought up and boom boxes in cars. The same black leaders claimed whites just want to stop blacks from playing rap music. Liberal media always wants black vs whites, That is how they beef up their ratings.Many reporters won't tell the truth when reporting facts, They will spin it and blame the cops ot white society to why this black thug killed this white cop . He lost his father 11 years ago when cops broke up his midnight barbecue party, The father had a heart attack,.The blacks said no he was beaten down by the PO PO.I have been around and worked wiht many blacks who have the same view about cops and whites, Once you get enough of them at any job, They begin to blame whites and speak out in hatred , Many I thought we're legit, Then soon as they got into a larger circle of their own people, They became a different person, More or less, The real blackness came out in them.The only way blacks and whites will truly get along is by separation, I have no problem of them being part of society. But look at the stats and the trillions of wasted tax dollars trying to empathize and sympathize and give them a better life, It hasn't worked one bit.Every major city where blacks reside and mostly where the regions are all black, They have the worst crime and dropout rate .The thing is now The Hispanics wil out breed and succeed where blacks didn't bother to even try unless it was sports and gang banging .I'm sure I'll be deemed a racist and bigot now. Half the people that call me that I bet never lived nest to black people worked with them fought with them after being called racist names and assaulted . Those who call me a racist or bigot are those typical lilly white liberal Dems who grew up with silver spoons and try and judge what they know nada about.
