Just two days before Christmas, one Louisville family is dealing with the fact that the killer who murdered a loved on is still on the loose.
A radio show offers new insights into "black-on-black homicides."
The death toll in Louisville. It's a statistic we can be sure of: Many people won't make it through the year because they'll be killed. The lives of 70 people ended that way this year, tearing families apart.
"Sometimes I'll look out the window and daydream a lot," Juanesha Langdon, 10, said. She daydreams about the mother she lost last year: Ta'keisha Huff -- gunned down at 27. Her boyfriend, Marion Jones, 30, also was shot and killed at the Sheppard Square housing complex. Juanesha -- the oldest of three -- lives in fear. "I live in a neighborhood where a lot of people get killed a lot."
Why? Community activist Chris 2X tackles that question in a radio special called "The Holidays Without" -- focusing on all the black families who spend year after year without a loved one: a father without a daughter, little girls without a mother.
"Welcome, everyone, to "From the Corner to the Courthouse: Both Sides of Justice," Chris 2X said into a microphone in the studio.
One of two black homicide detectives at the Louisville Metro Police Department, Keith Roberts says a lot of blacks kill over drugs, but some kill just for the sake of respect. "If you disrespect somebody, whether it's about their family, a friend, or say it to one on one, that just takes them over the edge, for some reason," he said.
Little Juanesha understands a concept too many teens and adults don't. "People shouldn't kill people because God said that we shouldn't kill because God, He died for us," she said.
She says she has nightmares about her mother's murder. "Or sometimes I have good dreams that she's with me and she's like the little angel in the stars just watching me all day. I miss her and I want to see her again," she said.Chris 2X?

|Violence is one a race problem in Louisville, origins found in Spontaneous Blackness|
And you wonder why Louisville is drowning in black-in-origin crime? Oh, its better. In areas of the city devoid of any white people, civilization has regressed to that found in a 'war zone'.[Hidden camera investigation exposes dangerous neighborhood, Wave3.com, 6-28-2012]:
On May 23, four hours after I finished recording drug deals on camera, police responded to a homicide at Beecher Terrace. A man was shot to death at 12th and Cedar, the same corner where I was videotaping.
The next day, after police and reporters cleared the scene, I recorded more drug deals and a handgun being doled out with the drugs. The drug activity was going on next to the "Stop the Killing" signs posted by community activist Christopher 2X.
"The best way I can relate to this issue is, as far as what you documented is, I'm disappointed," 2X said after viewing our tape. "This isn't helpful. I feel as that what this report will reveal, hopefully, is an urgency of us to do our own internal cleansing. Because I don't believe law enforcement is a solution to get us out of this problematic situation."
Sometimes law enforcement passed every 15 minutes. Sometimes two hours passed between patrol cars. But the people flashed signs, motioning to buyers and sellers when police officers approached. The residents walked by drug and gun activity. No one called the police.
"They're numb to it," said Lavel White. "They just dismiss it because they don't want to be involved in it."
White lived in Beecher Terrace. He graduated from college, and recently was appointed by Mayor Greg Fischer to a group that is tackling the violence problem.
"I knew my days might be numbered," White said, "but you live in your environment. You're used to it. So it's like you live in a war zone or something, but you don't know the war's going on."
Louisville is an overwhelmingly white city, with an overwhelmingly black crime problem. Well, the black community, mad that so much policing is required to keep their community operating somewhat smoothly, was uproariously upset that a white police chief was named in 2012.
The black community, led by such leaders such as community activist Chris 2X (and other black males wearing the Christian Cross), was upset a black police chief was not named in 2012. [Hiring of Conrad displeases African-American ministers, Wave 3 Louisville, 2-21-12]:
Not everyone in Louisville was delighted over Tuesday's announced that Steve Conrad had been selected as police chief of the Louisville Metro Police Department.
Reverend Charles Elliott and a group of African-American ministers walked in and sat in the front row. Elliott said they were disappointed with the selection. They wanted Yvette Gentry because she is African-American and worked her way up thru the ranks.
After entering the Mayor's Gallery, Conrad immediately walked up and introduced himself to them before the press conference. Mayor Greg Fischer followed suit and told the ministers, "I think when you get to know the chief, you'll get along."
After the press conference, we got reaction from a couple of key civil rights activists.
"We do have in our race the quality of leadership, whereby God blessed us to have the first black president of the U.S., with a white momma, which used to be if you looked at a white woman you'd be hung," said Rev. Charles Elliott of King Solomon Baptist Church. "So we made some progress, and we was hoping we could continue to make that kind of progress."
"This isn't the first time I met Chief Conrad and my first impression on him from the first time I met him was he was very humble, strong willed, very straight forward about making our relationship work," said Christopher 2X, a community activist.
"This appointment is one of the most important appointments that the Mayor will make and therefore the community needs to rally behind and pull together to make this a better community," said Raoul Cunningham, president of the Louisville NAACP Branch.
Most appealing to the African-American ministers is Conrad's resume which shows he worked his way up thru the ranks. Conrad started as patrol officer in the poorest parts of Louisville beginning in 1980.Yet another American city targeted for destruction.
