|President Obama: "If I had a son, he'd look Simeon Adams." The 16-year-old alleged killer (executioner) of 24-year-old Nathan Trapuzzano|
CNN won't air any stories on Trapuzzano, or show heart-breaking documentaries on how his widow - Jennifer, who is due to give birth to their first child next month - is coping without her husband.
Indianapolis will continue to drift toward Detroit status, though a Republican is mayor of the city (and for 38 of the past 46 years, Republicans have controlled the mayoral office of the city).
A white male in the prime of his life, with a young daughter on the verge of being born and an adoring wife to raise her with, is now dead.
Allegedly, a 16-year-old career black criminal, Simeon Adams, pulled the trigger of the gun that ended Trapuzzano's life.
If Obama had a son, he'd look a lot like Simeon Adams.
If Holder had a son, he'd look a lot like Simeon Adams.
If Nathan Trapuzzano's hypothetical next child with his wife Jennifer had been a son, he'd look nothing like the image of the man who gunned him down. [Boy, 16, Charged with Murdering Newlywed Nathan Trapuzzano After ‘Confessing to Friend’, Daily Mail, 4-8-14]:
A 16-year-old was today arrested and charged over the murder of Nathan Trapuzzano, the newlywed who was shot dead as he took a morning walk.
Jennifer and Nathan Trapuzzano: She'll give birth in a month to a child that will never know her father... gunned down "senselessly" by one of Obama's sons.
Simeon Adams, known by the nickname ‘Red’, is alleged to have confessed to a friend that he shot Nathan once in the stomach–after the newlywed, who was expecting his first child, reached down to his shoes as Adams made him strip during the robbery.
Adams’ friend Marvell Robinson told detectives he was woken up by the alleged shooter on the morning of April 1 at his home in Indianapolis. Adams told him: ‘Man the police is out here and they are looking for me.’
Robinson told detectives Adams made Nathan strip, according to the court papers.
‘When he told Nathan to take his pants off the victim started reaching for his shoes and Simeon asked him (Nathan) “Why you reaching for your shoes?”. Simeon said the “white man tried to tussle with me so I shot him”‘.
Nathan, a 24-year-old software engineer had been out for a morning walk at around 5am, when Adams and accomplice Martez ‘Duh-Duh’ McGraw allegedly targeted him.
It was also revealed today that Adams is accused of shooting a man outside Baba’s Steak and Lemonade eatery two nights before. Erick Douglas was there with his brother when he bumped into ‘Red’ as he got out of his car.
They exchanged words and Adams is alleged to have fired three shots into Douglas.
Two hit him–one in the groin and one in the left leg.
Then Adams was himself shot in the neck and was taken to hospital in a serious condition at 11.30pm on the day he is alleged to have murdered Nathan.
Adams has been charged with murder, attempted robbery and carrying a handgun without a license in relation to Nathan’s death.
He has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery and carrying a handgun without a license following the earlier shooting of Douglas.
Despite locals initially stating that they thought Nathan’s killing was a gang initiation, police now believe it to be an attempted robbery.
Officials announced Tuesday afternoon that Adams, who lives with his aunt, uncle and cousins, will be tried as an adult over the killing.
Indianapolis police said Adams’ clothes match up with the clothing the shooter was wearing in video footage from the night of the murder.
An acquaintance of Adams told detectives that he believes the alleged killer stole the gun during a raid on a firearms store in Clermont, Indiana.
Detectives believe they have a preliminary match with the gun used to kill Nathan and that used to shoot Douglas. According to court papers Douglas picked out Adams, who has previously been arrested for handgun violations, marijuana possession, theft, auto theft, burglary and resisting arrest, as his assailant from mugshots.
Tuesday night at Adams’ family home, his uncle Al carter said he did not believe his nephew was capable of such a horrific crime.
The alleged killer’s mother died when he was around one-year-old and although he knows his father he has never lived with him.
His family also revealed he has been sent to juvenile detention centre on a number of occasions and he had recently been arrested after police found a gun in a car he was travelling in. Mr Carter said the gun wasn’t his.
Mr Carter–who helped raise Adams after his mother died–said: ‘He used to get in trouble, but I didn’t think he was capable of this. I used to try to tell him not to hang with the wrong people and to stay on the right path. He listened to me. I would try to keep him in line and make him do his chores. If I told him to do something he would do it.
‘When his friends came over and sat on the porch I would speak to his friends and tell them that if they didn’t get themselves together they would end up dead or in jail. I told them they needed to change the way they were living and think on it. They would always agree with me.
‘I can’t believe he would get involved in something like this. I saw him in the hospital after he got shot and he didn’t say anything about it.
‘I’m not going to lie, he has been to juvy, his record is there for everyone to see, but never for anything violent. I didn’t ever hear about anything like that. He used to be a good footballer, but he stopped playing about two years ago. He was just a normal teenager.
‘I’m just feeling messed up by this whole scenario.’
Trapuzzano, a 24-year-old software engineer expecting his first child, was fatally shot in the 3500 block of West 16th Street just before 6am.
Trapuzzano was shot while he was out on his regular, early morning stroll just a few hundred yards from the home where he lived with his pregnant wife Jennifer–who is due to give birth to a baby girl next month.Could a more contrasting image of two people, of two races, be drawn that of Obama's Son Simeon Adams, and Nathan Trapuzzano?
Jennifer Trapuzzano would take to Facebook and post this:
"Today has been extra rough. It's been one week and I still can't comprehend that this is all real. The police have reported the suspect of my husband's murder was only 16. Oh how my already wounded heart aches to hear this. Nate always said one of the greatest crimes in the world today is how many babies grow up without their father. I don't know this man's circumstances but it hurts to hear that such a young man could turn to such violence. Please pray for his conversion," she posted.Jails across America, especially in Indianapolis, are full of young black males who have turned to violence precisely because they're genetically predisposed to such actions. Those are the circumstances surrounding why so many black males are involved in some capacity (probation, jail, juvenile, etc.) with the prison-industrial complex.
