I couldn't stop smiling the entire day, knowing the duty that I had as a father to my not even one-year-old child.
In the stunning blue eyes starring back at me, I knew the world my young child had entered was one in dire need of Trump... a man on the verge of tearing down the damn of political correctness once and for all.
Because a story of black dysfunction such as the one you're about to read cannot be blamed on white racism. It's just a hilarious reminder of what black people do on.... Father's Day. [Syracuse shooting: Man shot to death went by alias; at least 4 guns used in fight, Syracuse.com, June 20, 2016]:
Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler confirmed this afternoon that a man was killed during gunfire Sunday night in a courtyard surrounded by apartments on the city's Near West Side.
The man who was fatally shot was identified as Gary Porter, 41, the chief said. He would not say if Porter was armed.
Porter went by the alias Terry Maddox, the chief and the victim's friends and family indicated. Fowler did not use Maddox's name at a news conference, but acknowledged that the victim had been identified by his alias.
The chief said he had been in contact with Porter's father, who was out-of-town but planned to meet with Fowler in coming days. The two planned to make a joint statement at some point in the future, the chief said, but declined to elaborate.
At least four guns were used in Sunday's fight, Fowler said, pointing to shell casings found near the small courtyard surrounded apartment blocks.
The gunfire erupted in the small courtyard on Tully Street, where hundreds of people were celebrating Father's Day.
Police had gotten tips earlier that people planned to "shoot up" the celebration, said Mayor Stephanie Miner, who attended a news conference with Fowler this afternoon.
Fowler said it's not yet known if Porter was shot by a female officer who fired her service weapon during the incident. He promised to release that information once the crime lab and the medical examiner's office know for sure what happened.
The female officer, who Fowler did not name, heard shots ring out and ran in the direction of gunfire. But Fowler would not say what prompted the officer to fire. He only said that the officer ran in the direction of the bullets and faced a "deadly force situation" that caused her to fire.
The officer was injured, but Fowler would not say if she required treatment at a hospital.
A few other notes from this afternoon's news conference:
• Mayor Miner said that there had been problems in previous years during the Father's Day celebration at nearby Skiddy Park. This year, organizers were told they could not gather at the park, so they moved the party to the courtyard in the James Geddes Housing complex.
• The gunfire was unrelated to an earlier call nearby of a man down. An officer arrived at 11 p.m. to that call on Otisco Street, but found no one down, Miner said. The officer reported a large crowd and asked for help. Meanwhile, 911 was also getting calls from witnesses asking for more police, Miner said.
That's when the officer heard gunshots from the area of the courtyard on Tully Street, the mayor said. More calls came into 911 reporting the shooting, she said.
• Fowler said he was not aware of a third teenage victim whose family says was grazed in the head by a bullet. The chief said he understood that she suffered her injuries falling down.In the future, the right to produce children must not be left to chance. To me, once you have children, you understand the ultimate lesson of life is simply this: duty.
We have absolutely no duty to taking care of black people and their dysfunction... we only have a duty to our future.
