Birmingham, Alabama... the home of one of the highest crime rates in America. Dubbed "The Killing Years" a whole generation of Black people have been eradicated by other Black people in a war that is not limited to this municipality.
Another life can be added to the ever-expanding list of Black people killed at the hands of fellow Black people. Snuffed out in the prime of their lives, these individuals leave behind grieving families and unfulfilled potential:
Just days ago, Tyrone Davis and his mother talked about his plans for the future and the kind of life he wanted to live.This story reminds SBPDL of the melancholy demise of one Larmondo "Flair" Allen, a 25-year-old Black entrepreneur and father of nine who - like Tyrone Davis - was killed in his prime.
"He had problems in the past but he said the only thing he wanted to do was raise his children," Mary Davis said.
Those plans ended Thursday night when Tyrone Davis, 35, was shot to death in Wylam.
The shooting happened about 5:40 p.m. in the 700 block of Albany Street.
Birmingham police Sgt. Sam Noblitt said witnesses heard the shots, and saw Davis on the ground struggling to get up.
They helped him up and drove him to Princeton Baptist Medical Center. Davis died while being transferred to UAB Hospital.
Investigators on Friday were working on several leads, but had not made any arrests in the slaying, the city's 22nd homicide this year.
His mother said she knew little about what led to her son's death. The father of four was living in Ohio, but was in and out of Birmingham and planning on moving back here permanently.
He was visiting relatives when the shooting happened.
"They were all talking to me, telling me what happened, but I wasn't listening," she said. "The only thing I thought about was praying."
Mary Davis said she heard there was a confrontation before the shooting, but doesn't know what led to the dispute.
"It's devastating," she said. "It's hard. Really, hard."
She described her son as hardworking and intelligent.
"I will miss that smile," she said, "and that he always showed me that he loved me."
In Black Run America (BRA), any negative act by a white person is attributable to all white people. Conversely, any negative act by a Black person is attributable to white racism. This fact is beyond contestation.
Take the story of one Charles Coger, a 26-year-old Floridian who raped a women one night and then returned to the scene of the crime the following night:
A woman helped capture the man suspected of raping her after police say he returned to the victim's home the night after the assault.What drove Mr. Coger to act in such a manner? The better question might be what drives so many Black individuals to repeat this same behavior in a near collective manner?
St. Petersburg Police say 26-year-old Charles Coger entered the woman's home on Friday at 2 a.m., through an unlocked back door and then went into her bedroom.
That triggered an alarm, waking the victim, according to Coger's arrest affidavit. She told him to leave, but he grabbed the back of her neck and rolled her onto her stomach, the report states.
He told her he would hurt her if she didn't comply with his sexual demands, according to the affidavit. Fearing for her safety, and for that of a child in the home, she complied, the affidavits say.
Police say Coger returned to the woman's home the following night. However this time the woman and a friend held onto him until police arrived, according to Coger's arrest report.
Have you seen the film Serenity, based on the television show Firefly? Not ruining the plot, the government in this futuristic story has inadvertently unleashed upon the galaxy an evil known as Reavers.
In an effort to make the perfect world, they created Reavers.
Disingenuous White Liberals have created the world we live in today, unleashing a never-ending tale of woe that few wish to acknowledge, in the process.
For the memory of Mr. Davis, late of Birmingham, and the long departed Mr. Allen (a budding entrepreneur) it is past time to show the world the true face of the Reavers who threaten to destabilize every major city in the United States.
