East St. Louis in Illinois is 96.3 percent black. Perhaps this is why one of the latest mass shootings, where seven people were shot, including a three-year-old boy, has barely made any headlines.

It only involved black people. And it happened on Martin Luther King Drive.

Further proof Black Lives Matter. [3 charged for shooting 7 people, including a child, in East St. Louis, KMOV.com, September 11, 2021]:

EAST St. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOV.com) – Three men have been charged after a ‘targeted’ shooting injured seven people, including a child, in East St. Louis.

Deangelo M. Higgs, 35, Cartez Beard, 30 and Lorenzo Bruce Jr., 32, were each charged with seven counts of aggravated battery/discharge of a firearm and felony for possession of weapons. Higgs is from East St. Louis. Beard is from Cahokia and Bruce is from Madison, Illinois.

East St. Louis officials issued a city-wide curfew starting Friday in response to Thursday’s mass shooting. The curfew runs from midnight through 6 a.m. every day until further notice.

On Thursday, Illinois State Police officials said three suspects opened fire in the area of 6th Street and Martin Luther King Drive in East St. Louis at 4 p.m. Seven people were shot, including a 3-year-old boy. Paramedics rushed the child to the hospital while performing life-saving measures on the way.

“The persistence of violence that’s affecting our urban community is shocking,” East St. Louis Mayor Robert Eastern III said. “I’m praying and I’m pleading to our young people to stop the gun violence.”

On Friday, East St. Louis Police Chief Kendall Perry said the shooting wasn’t random and was targeted but he couldn’t provide a motive.

ISP said one of the shooting victims, a 25-year-old man, crashed the car he was driving into a MetroLink train. Officials with MetroLink said around 10 passengers on the train that was struck were checked out on the scene for any injuries from the collision.

Stephen Pierce was with his wife and two children when he heard “boom, boom, boom, boom.” The family was waiting at a bus stop when the shots were fired.

“I mean, our backs were turned and the next thing you know they just started shooting and it came at the back of my head and I didn’t know what to do but to get up and run,” Pierce said.

Pierce said the shooters appeared to be targeting somebody, but bullets were flying everywhere and one narrowly missed his kid but hit his wife in the right arm.

“I hope you go to jail for the rest of your life. You can’t be shooting people up like that, man, get out of here,” Pierce said.

After an overnight manhunt, the suspects were found in the basement of a partially demolished building in the 600 block of St. Louis Avenue around 2:30 a.m. Friday. All three were taken into custody.

While police were investigating the incident, MetroLink used shuttles to move passengers between the 5th and Missouri and Emerson Park stations.

Every individual involved in this mass shooting (suspect and victim) were black.

Somehow though this mass shooting is the fault of white gun owners. Right?

If it were illegal for blacks to own firearms, would there be any gun violence in America?

  4. If it were illegal for blacks to own firearms, would there be any gun violence in America?

    It’s ALREADY illegal for many of these shooters to own or even possess, however temporarily, a gun.  That’s because they’re felons.  But they freely post pics of themselves with guns on social media, and our government does nothing to prosecute these open-and-shut cases.

    We have to do more than make it illegal for blacks to own firearms.  We have to enforce the laws already on the books.

  5. HT says:

    If this was a shooting involving a white guy with a Trump hat killing people, it would not only be the big story for several days but the media would also use it to create multiple spin off stories about the evils of white people and specifically Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the media ignores all of the Negro violence in America and covers for several days, a white girl killed by her boyfriend.

  7. Only in today’s current America can 3 dipshits open fire on a group of people and not be charged with attempted murder. Usually if shooters are shooting wantonly into a crowd full of random people, they’re trying to kill/harm SOMEONE, so these charges make no sense, unless the courts don’t consider as blacks people.

    “If it were illegal for blacks to own firearms, would there be any gun violence in America?”

    Of course! Orcs laugh at laws and would not pay any attention to a law prohibiting them from owning guns. As we’ve seen for many decades, laws are meaningless to orcs.

    Laws only work on civilized people. Eventually some “community activist” will tell us that laws, like maff, showing up on time, behaving in class, paying for items in stores and restaurants, etc., are “white racial constructs” that are damaging to orcs and don’t apply.

    Indeed.

    If one were really to enforce existing federal gun laws in the ghetto, that would get nearly all the “guns off the street”, which is to say stolen or otherwise unregistered firearms.

    As it is, the only time those laws are enforced in those neighborhoods are things like when there’s a major drug bust and they also find a cache of weapons.

  23. Street names, do not cause criminals to change their criminal intentions. When I was a young boy, we lived close to a street called Santa Barbara Blvd. in central Los Angeles. Liquor stores were always being robbed. Then, the name of the street was changed to none other than Marin Luther King Blvd. and liquor stores were still being robbed. The idea that name changes, fundamentally change certain places, is a radical leftist notion and like so many of their ideas, is totally based in their surreal and unrealistic view of the world. I probably could have said this in a much shorter version. C’est la Vie.

    That’s what government fears: resurgent and armed White people. That’s why they so overreact to Jan. 6. They know White people are still a majority of the population.

    If Whites unite, revolt and attack blacks to rid their living areas of crime, how can government stop them unless they can keep them from joining together. Together, they might not just control black crime, but get rid of the government elite who allow us to be victimized.

    East St.Louis after being inundated by the black plague in the 60’s is and has been a toilet for over a half decade. Being stationed at Scott AFB in the late 80’s as a communications technician I worked with some retired Illinois Bell men, one in particular told me of a female service tech that got into the unfortunate scenario of being targeted by some bored knuckle draggers and ended up buying it from a shotgun shoved up her vagina. I’d already been awake for some time from the thrill of forced desegregation in my home town, but that story stuck with me and ratcheted up my level of race reality 10 fold.

    In many areas true. But MLK Drives are nearly ubiquitous. In my relatively small town, the local MLK does in fact run through the poorer side of town, but it’s safe enough for a white person to drive around in, at least during the day. At one end of the MLK, along the State highway, are the requisite KFC and Popeye’s as well as many other fast food choices, along with the town’s liquor stores, etc. And besides, where else will you go to buy your drugs? 😛

    It’s helpful that my county’s Black population is about half the national average.

    If you are ever near a Martin Luther King Drive, get away immediately.

    He attended a YT “Rave” on Detroit’s East Side well over a decade ago. Apparently everything went well until it was time to head home @ 4am.

    A speeding black (they drive insane here), blew through a light and T-Boned the car he was in.
    He wound up paralyzed and bed ridden.
    But blacks came outta the darkness and tossed his car and his person. Stealing anything of value.
    That’s the comparison to your post I’m making here.

    No one really knows if they further worsened his injuries by dragging him from the wreckage to plunder and steal.

    The poor kid wasted away in his bed and died a couple yrs later.

    “We can’t arrest our way out of this.” Uh, yes you can. That is almost your entire crime problem in a nutshell. If you’d put the repeat violent offenders away in a shithole prison where they belong, instead of releasing them over and over again, you’d see crime drastically drop. You know…like back when the White people were in charge and did it this way. But it’s always about “not keepin a brotha down” with these people. They are not like us.

    Only in Los Angeles would it come as a shock to journalists that a guy named “Jihad Muhammad” met a violent end. It’s hard to think of a more “violent end” name than that. Maybe “Ikeelyou AliAliAkbar” or “Die-Infidel Beheadaman.” Still, funny enough, Jihad Muhammad’s violent death had nothing to do with terrorism.
    The 62-year-old black L.A. native was merely crossing a street on a rainy night in Crenshaw (one of the last remaining black areas in the city) when he was run over by a driver who sped off, leaving him to be run over by a second car, which also sped off, leaving him to be hit by a third car, which dragged him for a mile before the driver pulled over at a gas station to dislodge the body…before speeding off.
    By the time it was over, Jihad Muhammad was not so much Imam as IHOP (as in, pancaked).
    In the wake of Muhammad’s death, the L.A. Times decided to do some digging into the “epidemic of rising pedestrian deaths and traffic violence that is endangering us all but is having a disproportionate effect on people of color in low-income neighborhoods.”

    Is Black Rage still being used as a legal defense? I remember when it was alleged that Negroes had silently labored under such an odious burden of 400 years of backbreaking, menial servitude, and unbearable racism and oppression, that a sudden, unprovoked, outburst of violent behavior was not only excusable, it was understandable. Maybe, even, Heroic.
