Another white person murdered by a black male (or in this case, black males) in Indianapolis.
|Nathan Trapuzzano, shot early in the morning while walking/jogging in Indianapolis... suspects are at large|
Currently, police are searching for the murderer(s) of 24-year-old Nathan Trapuzzano, a recently married white male who was soon to welcome a child into the world.
Now that child will enter the world without a father, like so many black babies do.[Senseless killing: A shocking death, a remarkable life, Indy Star, 4-2-14]:
Nathan Trapuzzano was expecting a baby on May 7, would celebrate his first wedding anniversary on May 11 and turn 25 years old on May 17. He was a self-taught computer engineer, graduated summa cum laude from Ball State University with a degree in classical studies and was fluent in Latin.
On Tuesday, while taking his regular morning walk for exercise, he was gunned down on the Westside for no apparent reason.
Family, friends and colleagues on Wednesday mourned his shocking death while honoring his remarkable life.
"Nathan Trapuzzano was the most kind-hearted person you would ever know," a statement Wednesday evening from the family said. "He never had an unkind thought in his head. He was so in love wife his wife, Jennifer, and unborn baby daughter, Cecilia. He was so excited about being a new Daddy. ...
"As with many tragedies, this seems so senseless, and yet the outpouring of love and support reminds us that there is so much good in this world.
Father Christopher Roberts, the administrator at Saint Mary in Union City and Saint Joseph in Winchester, said he met Trapuzzano while spending time with Catholic students at the Newman Center at Ball State.
"There were two things beyond his command of Latin letters that impressed me about Nathan from the start," Roberts writes in his blog. "The first was his goodness. He was a true gentleman, considerate of others and always wanting to become a better man. The second thing that impressed me about Nathan was his deep Catholic faith. …
"We pray also for his murderers, who took the life of one of the best young men I have ever known. May God forgive them."
Indianapolis police on Tuesday concentrated forces on the neighborhood where Trapuzzano was shot, merging the Southwest and Northwest districts and urging the public to scrutinize a security video that shows the two attackers.
Trapuzzano was walking east on 16th Street when he was attacked by two men, one of whom appeared to act as a lookout, between about 5:45 a.m. and 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Police have released no known motive for the shooting. Trapuzzano appeared to be dressed in simple workout clothes and not carrying anything.
He was found, shot in the abdomen, in the parking lot of Tron Tire Shop, 3500 block of West 16th Street, where he typically walked every evening.
After he was shot, video footage from the tire store shows the second assailant fled northeast across West 16th Street. The first assailant, believed to have been the shooter, fled west on West 16th Street.The motive for his killing?
Trapuzzano was a white male.
That's motive enough.
Nothing else to say.
Father Christoper Roberts can be forgiven. God shouldn't forgive the killers of Trapuzzano, nor should the justice system.
They should die.
And without remorse.
|Odds are high the murderer(s) of Trapuzzano will look like Trayvon Martin. Very high|
Erika Smith, the resident token black journalist at the Indy Star, wrote a column asking why the police exercised such force in trying to capture Trapuzzano's killers (the answer is simple... the black community is protecting them). Well, the white community doesn't engage in fatal and nonfatal shootings at the rate the black community does in Indianapolis.
There's you answer, Erika (now go complain about black dysfunction and abnormally high standards white people have set that blacks can't come close to replicating). [Erika D. Smith: Dramatic police response to Westside shooting was warranted, Indy Star, 4-4-14]:
First, the people who attacked Trapuzzano had better be terrified because a whole lot of IMPD officers are searching for them.
Second, why such a strong police presence for this one murder? At the time Trapuzzano was gunned down early Tuesday, he was just one of seven people who had been shot in the city in four days, including a triple homicide on the Far Eastside and one inside of a Near Northside clothing store in the middle of the day.
These are the kinds of thoughts that lead to uncomfortable questions.
Questions like: Do we, as a city, value the lives of some victims more than others?
Does race matter? Does class matter? Do we crack down on crime in some neighborhoods while merely trying to manage it in others? These are questions that will continue to crop up as the city fights more crime with limited resources.
There are no easy answers. Instead, there are mostly perceptions and reality.No, they're easy answers. Indianapolis is drowning in black blood - which is why white people flee for higher ground - and the violence is all black-in-origin.
Race does matter. Trapuzzano was a productive member of society. At the age of 24, he was already married and with a baby on the way; that's more than 80 percent of black males will ever attain in the city of Indianapolis.
And, no matter what the REVVVVERRANND Charles Harrison dares claim, it's time we start talking about the consequences of black dysfunction.... namely the civilization whites created in Indianapolis and that they now abandon to the ravages of black failure.
The 10-Points Coalition (a ragtag group of well-connected black clergy in Indianapolis, peddling the lie only they can stop black-in-origin violence...) purports to deal with black youth and have a direct line with stoppling black violence.
|We'll soon learn two of Obama's Sons took Nathan, making his wife a widow|
We will soon learn Trapuzzano was killed by two of these black youth. [Tully: Charles Harrison shines truth on violence in Indy, Indy Star, 4-1-14]:
Every once in a while, when I'm trying to make sense of the violence in our city, I turn to the Rev. Charles Harrison. A crime-fighting truth-teller who is just as comfortable talking to gang members on the streets as he is talking to parishioners in church or followers on Twitter, Harrison has done more than just about anyone in recent years to shine a spotlight on the toll crime takes on many neighborhoods.
What the pastor of Barnes United Methodist Church says doesn't always make everyone comfortable. But he's not worried about making the conversations this city needs to have comfortable ones. So Harrison, who is among a group of ministers that hits the streets regularly to help prevent violence, calls out parents who aren't properly parenting their children and political leaders who aren't putting the proper emphasis on long-term, nonpartisan public safety strategies.
"We are really not addressing the root causes of our problems," he told me Tuesday morning. "I worry that we are focused more on trying to find police solutions to what really are social problems. Until we address our social problems, we are not going to reduce the violence."
He paused, and then added: "It just won't happen."
Harrison pointed to two underlying causes of crime. The first is the most glaring: Too many children are having children, too many kids are born into poverty, and too many men don't man up to the responsibilities that come with fatherhood.
"We don't talk about it enough as a community," he said. "We don't talk about it enough in the black community. It's been taboo."It's not a taboo.
It's just black dysfunction, which does not have its origin in white racism, supremacy or privilege.
24-year-old Nathan Trapuzzano.
He'll never feel the joy of being a father, watching his child (and eventual children) grow old.
Never kiss them at night and tuck them into bed.
Never embrace his widow again.
There is no white-on-white crime/violence/homicide problem... it's an aberration. Black-on-black crime/violence/homicide is a problem, which is why white flight and property depreciation occurs.
We'll soon find out you were killed merely for Walking While White.
