The condition of 2013 Memphis directly reflects the 64 percent black population of the city, a fact 27-year-old David Santucci probably never considered in his entire life. A white male (who had just started working as a nurse in the city), Santucci is just another chalk outline, courtesy of the Sons of Obama.[ANOTHER SENSELESS MURDER YOU’RE NOT HEARING ABOUT — AND SOME IN THE FAMILY WONDER IF IT COULD BE A TRAYVON MARTIN REVENGE MURDER, The Blaze, august 23, 2013]:
It’s a senseless murder you aren’t hearing about.
A young white male was walking to his car on a city street late at night on August 12 when he was confronted by a trio of black individuals. They shot him dead. Police have arrested three people and charged them with first degree murder. But some in the victim’s family can’t understand why the shooting is being called a failed robbery when they say the evidence suggests something possibly more sinister: a hate crime.
David Santucci, 27, had just started his new job as a nurse. According to his family, “he was an awesome guy…he wanted to be a missionary…he wanted to help people.”
The murder happened in Memphis, TN less than two weeks ago. Santucci was killed by a single 9mm shot through his heart. To its credit, the Memphis police department apprehended the suspects in less than fifteen minutes. Various reports say that all three suspects made statements that implicated them in Santucci’s murder. And they’re calling it a robbery gone wrong.
Miguel De Diago is one family member who doubts this killing was a failed robbery. He’s the the brother-in-law of David Santucci and told TheBlaze some stuff just doesn’t add up.
The first and foremost question in De Diago’s mind: If this was a robbery, why did his brother-in-law still have his wallet, car keys, and cell phone? Nothing was taken from him. And witnesses confirm that.
Since the killing, Miguel has worked tirelessly to track down the good Samaritans who rushed to the aid of his brother-in-law as he lay bleeding on the sidewalk. He managed to track down the first three to get to David’s side, Taneshia, Sharae and Brittany. Arriving first on the scene, Sharae tried to apply pressure to the wound in order to stop the bleeding. Brittany searched through David’s phone and tried to call a family member, and Taneshia held David Santucci’s hand and led them all in prayer.
In addition to the fact that Santucci was still in possession of his phone and wallet, Miguel says witnesses told police that the car drove past David, stopped and backed up. One of the suspects (Mario Patterson) got out of the car and walked toward Santucci, fired a shot and ran back to the car, jumping into the driver’s seat and speeding off. Miguel also says the police told him that the 9mm shell casing was found 10 feet from the body — an indication to him that the shooter was not at close range as would typically happen with a robbery.
Miguel told TheBlaze that he tracked the alleged shooter, Patterson through his Facebook account — an account now deleted. He said the page had numerous photos of Trayvon Martin, and he wondered if it’s possible the shooting was a revenge killing for the Zimmerman verdict.
So why call it a robbery? Miguel wonders if the killing is being labeled as such because of the neighborhood’s proximity to Beale Street, the biggest tourist attraction in downtown Memphis. (Elvis Presley’s family home of Graceland is a bit outside of town.) If Beale Street becomes riddled with crime and killings with no explanation, Memphis tourism could suffer considerably.
Still, despite the questions, David’s mother, Darlin Fugit is a woman of powerful faith. She has already forgiven her son’s accused killers — and she’s also certain that her son would have forgiven them too. Fugit told one TV crew, “And if the whole purpose of David dying…and the way he died – for the purpose of people coming to know Jesus, if that’s the purpose, I can understand.”Darlin Fugit, your son didn't die so people could come to know Jesus. Your son died because he's white, and in 64 percent black Memphis (655,000 residents) that means he is fair game in a game of unspeakable ethnic cleansing played by the Michael Ohers of the city.
Without Beale Street, there'd be almost no reason to visit 2013 Memphis (unless you desire seeing Graceland, Elvis Presley's home). And it takes a huge police presence to keep visitors and tourists safe from being the victim of 'random' black crime there. Remember: in any war, you protect your strategic assets, allowing expendable resources to be victimized.

David Santucci was a victim of not gun crime in Memphis, but of black crime in Memphis. Black murderers used a gun as the weapon in his murder, but the true tool of Santucci's demise was racial hate his three black murderers felt for whites.
And yes, Memphis is plagued by other black individuals using guns as the tool for delivering hatred (based on low-impulse control and poor future-time orientation) [Gun access cited in homicide rise in Memphis, Memphis Commercial Appeal, 12-31-12]:
By Monday afternoon, the last day of 2012, the number of homicide victims in Memphis for the year stood at 157.
That's an increase of nearly 7 percent from 147 victims in 2011, according to the Memphis Police Department's preliminary statistics.
Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong pointed to easy access to guns, used in two-thirds or more of the murders nationwide, as a chief cause of the homicide trend.
Armstrong said 2010, when there were just 93 criminal homicides that year, marking a 40-year-low, was an anomaly. While the rising homicide numbers represent a return to average. In 2001, for example, Memphis recorded 161 murders, according to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation statistics.
Three of every four murder victims, or nearly 75 percent, are black males, according to Memphis police data for 2012. Of the city's total homicides for the year, 115 were black males.
Far fewer black women were homicide victims, with 19 in 2012, but they were the second largest category of crime victims in the city. Together, black males and females accounted for 85 percent of the city's homicides in 2012.
Among the black women slain in 2012 was Officer Martoiya Lang, 32, who was fatally shot while serving a search warrant with an Organized Crime Unit team on Dec. 14. Lang was the first female Memphis police officer killed in the line of duty.
Memphis police counted 14 white males and three white females among homicide victims in 2012. Four Hispanic males, one Hispanic female and one female of another race or ethnicity also were listed among the victims.
FBI national homicide statistics indicate that victims are far more likely to have been killed by someone of the same race as the victim. Armstrong said when the victim is an African-American male, as at least 115 homicide victims in Memphis were in 2012, the suspect is usually an African-American male as well.
" I think you have to be honest with yourself," he said. "If you have 115 of anything, it's a problem."
The police director said it's a cultural problem, an educational problem, a broken family structure problem, a problem with community structures that aren't strong, an economic problem.
But the central problem Armstrong pointed to on Monday was too easy access to guns. Stiffening bail conditions, targeting repeat offenders who slip through the cracks of the criminal justice system and return to the streets and concentrating on certain areas of the city are examples of gun violence reduction strategies that he or Mayor A C Wharton have mentioned.Black culture isn't created by white people; it's created by black individuals and celebrated by the black community; if there exist broken community structures, then you point the finger at black individuals for creating fissures within whatever standards once existed to hold together the black community.
David Santucci death doesn't offer white women like Leigh Anne Tuohy and her family the opportunity to earn morality points for bringing it up at cocktail parties they attend; unlike the adoption of Michael Oher, the slaughtering of a white male in the streets of 64 percent black Memphis (by three blacks) represents just another excuse for a woman like Tuohy to bloviate about the need to help save black people from their own misery.
