|Murdered by two black males in Baltimore... a city remade in the image of its 63 percent black population|
He requested a picture of this male be removed from the site, since he counted black individuals as his friends when he was still capable of breathing.
Black people were behind this white males murder, meaning his counting black individuals among his peer-group didn't persuade (or dissuade) those who took his life from thinking-twice.
I agreed to comply with the request of this lawyer, under one simple condition: tell his family the man is still dead, and that even though he had black friends, this didn't protect him from being senselessly slaughtered by black people.
Which brings me to the story of a white female bartender in Baltimore, Kimberly Leto. The 51-year-old was murdered in her home by two black males in a "robbery gone wrong" (according to the Baltimore Sun).

More unsettling in this story is that one of the black males has a mother who is a dispatcher with the Baltimore Police Department (a civilian employee).
In absolutely none of the articles on this story do we learn Leto was a white female, a productive member of society murdered inside her home in America's Monrovia, Baltimore.
Here is her Facebook page, and the Facebook of the bar in which she was employed as a popular bartender. [Police arrest teenagers in Ellwood Avenue homicide: Kimberly Leto found dead inside Patterson Park home, WBALTV.com, 2-3-14]:
Baltimore City police have arrested two teenagers in connection with the killing of a woman in her Patterson Park home, while neighbors say they're shocked and saddened at the loss of such a good person.
Baltimore police on Sunday arrested Allen Pinkney, 15, and Alonzo Gorham-Ramos, 14, on murder, first-degree conspiracy to commit murder, first-degree burglary and dangerous weapon with intent to injure charges.
Around 7:30 a.m. Friday, officers found 51-year-old Kimberly Leto dead inside her home in the 400 block of South Ellwood Avenue. Police said Leto suffered from trauma to her body. The manner of Leto's death is still pending from the State's Medical Examiner.
Leto worked at O'Donnell's Pub on Potomac Street in nearby Canton. Regulars at the bar and friends of the victim, who called her Kimmie, said they're shocked and saddened by what happened to her.
"She was just a wonderful person. When she walked in she just had a certain glow about herself," said friend Kevin Carrick.
"She was always so full of life. You never saw her with a sad look on her face. She was always smiling and laughing," said friend Stephanie Stickline.
Police said Ramos faced charges of breaking into Leto's house in August, and they believe the motive Friday was burglary, too. Officials said Ramos' prior arrest is what led them to him so quickly in Leto's slaying.
"This is a heartbreaking tragedy on so many levels. Our purpose today is not to claim victory with this arrest but to lament that such a tragedy occurred in the first place," said Police Commissioner Anthony Batts.
Despite the arrests, people who live and work in the Patterson Park neighborhood were left with even more questions.

"For a 14- and 15-year-old to do this, why couldn't they just -- if they had to take something, why not just take it and go? Why did they have to kill her?" questioned Carrick.
Police also confirmed that Ramos' mother is a dispatcher, a civilian employee, with the Police Department.
Here's how the Baltimore Sun remembered Leto.[Police arrest two teenagers in killing of Highlandtown woman, Baltimore Sun, 2-2-14]:
Kimberly Leto, of the 400 block of S. Ellwood Ave., was found dead inside her home overlooking Patterson Park early Friday with what police described as "upper body trauma." A neighbor said she was told by police the home had been broken into from the rear, and a chair could be observed pushed under the rear kitchen window, which was half-open.
Police said they believe that Gorham-Ramos and Pinkney killed Leto in a robbery gone wrong. Change, electronics and small personal items were taken from the house, police said.
Batts called the killing "unconscionable" and expressed regret that the crime will result in three lives being thrown away — not only Leto's, but also those of the two teenagers.
"It is unacceptable to see family after family ripped apart by such petty behavior," he said. "This is a heartbreaking tragedy on so many levels."
Investigators said they were able to quickly identify Gorham-Ramos and Pinkney as suspects because Gorham-Ramos had been charged with burglarizing Leto's house before.
Police confirmed Pinkney's mother works for the department as a dispatcher.Leto was well-known to patrons as a bartender at O'Donnell's Pub in Canton. Another bartender working there Sunday before the Super Bowl said the staff at O'Donnell's was still trying to cope with news of their colleague's death."It's still tender," she said.
City Councilman James B. Kraft, who represents Highlandtown, said he had requested additional officers, including on foot patrol, in the neighborhood before Christmas and again this year.
He said the mayor's administration and police commanders told him the department is too understaffed for the requests to be fulfilled.
"I don't have a gun. I don't have a badge," he said. "I can't stand on every corner. All I can do is try to get [police officers] where they could be and try to get more of them."Why bring up the story at top and what does it have to do with the murder of Leto?
By even mentioning the racial angle of this killing, those who knew Leto will become upset and claim she had black friends in life and was somehow who would put a "Coexist" sticker on her car.
It doesn't matter.
In those last few moments of her life, all she saw were two black males in what police can only a "robbery gone wrong."
It was murder gone right...
