Latest Youngstown shooting victim ID’d

Published: Sat, February 13, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The man found shot and lying in the snow unconscious Thursday on the city’s South Side has been identified as Aaron Clinkscale, 30, of Rush Boulevard.

According to police, Clinkscale was shot in the head in what appears to have been a drive-by shooting in the 300 block of Florida Avenue at 6:20 p.m. Thursday. He was found lying in the snow in front of a vacant house.

Capt. Rod Foley of the Youngstown Police Department said officers plan to revisit the scene of the shooting and look for more clues today.

He said Clinkscale is listed in critical condition at St. Elizabeth Health Center.

How nice that the YPD plans to revisit the crime scene and look for more clues. Think maybe the grossly neglected epidemic of unemployment, poverty, drug addiction and dysfunctional families in the Black community have anything to do with this latest shooting? Anybody got a clue on how to abolish these social problems killing Youngstown other than "praising the Lord" at Calvary Temple?

Why everytime someone gets killed or injured that racial things have to be stated in the comment sections on the vindy? But anyway I hope they catch the person who did it and this man pulls through.

@paulb and your point is? I bet you had your mother and father growing up and looked how you turned out. A lonely old grump who has nothing better to do but posts on vindy several times a day. Get a life!

HEY ATTIS, RIIIIIIIIIGHT ON...bout time some intelligence is displayed on this board, instead of rushed judgements, and posts to criminal pasts of victims....etc etc... (big up to you Nunya for speaking out and calling it out) everytime a shooting, thats what these ignorant folks do..rush to judge and act as if they know what the heck is going on...and say racist crap..it only shows their ignorance and non-critical thought process (programmed mind-state)...I wouldnt even argue with them, it is unwise to debate with a fool

ATTIS: I also feel you on the church nonsense, but they do what they do, but it would be better if they followed through with some practicality...Black church teaches us that nothing matters, just praise Jesus, the LORD or whatever, speak Christianese on facebook, and continue to pay your tithes (uhhh - payment to the preacher), and continue to be poor, ...don't do any economic and educational development to your own community like Jews, Arabs, Koreans, etc...just look to others for "protection" and "action", and kick dust if there's not enough Black actors in Hollywood...Civil Rights movement worse thing that happened to us..

BIG UP ATTIS!!! I SEE YA! keep the intelligence rolling!

I am so glad that someone has sense enough not to say things about someone in that state. God forbid if it were there family and some idiot went and dug up crap about him or someone in their family that had be shot, stabbed or anything harmful. I hope for a full recovery because it doesn't matter what he did, that isn't something he deserved. No one had any comments about the weed selling, child molester that owned a dairy queen in canfield, luring little in by offering them ice cream. I went to that blog just to see what had been said and no one had anything to say then. Daughter probably dating a African American man or woman. Spell Check that

LIFE2SHORT all the Clinkscales in the area are related. If they arent dead they are residents of a correctional facility for the most part. Sad to say but thats the reality. Go to www.drc.state.oh.us/offendersearch and look up Clinkscale and look at those from Mahoning Cty. Brucie is the craziest he held Westlake hostage.

Black folks on here who always use the race card go listen to some 2pac especially "CHANGES". "Change the way you live cuz you see the old way isnt working". That brotha been dead damn near 14 years and his music stiill is an illustration of what happens in the black community.

The Black community in Youngstown again showing their total lack of family and moral values. Does anyone think Youngstown will ever change?

The subculture uses shootings as a form of expression . Can we as mainstream society deny them that right ? We can try to deny them that right but they are resourceful and will continue with their cause . YEP, TO THEM IT'S ALL GOOD !

Instead of throwing the racist card in, the community should start doing what this lady is doing. Being proactive instead of defending the animals.

Calling the subculture animals is akin to taking the last vestige of their humanity . They will defend their lifestyles to the very end . Is it time to throw in the towel yet ?

Are some of yall mad because alot of racial things do come out in alot of yall replies through out the headlines on the vindy site but didn't want anyone to state that? And another thing I never said it was just black racial things being said on this site I have seen other racial backgrounds being racially talked down on as well. But to some of the people on here who claim people pulling race cards take a good look at alot of your own replies and then ask yourself that question about the race card. Is it okay to sterotype the whole black community and white community? Instead of some of the members of vindy always saying ignorant b.s. on this site about a race or nationality as a whole how about sticking to the topic or post a solution. Why do I say that because stating some things like these welfare trash, koolaid drinkers, honkies, and black/white trash is not helping by calling everyone as a whole those things ( those were just some examples I know alot more has been said im only speaking off the top of my head of what I can remember reading some of the vindy members post).

NUNNYA I never make racist statements I grew up in the hood. What I do is speak honestly and factually about the situation around us. I call an ace an ace a spade a spade a crime a crime etc etc etc

also bro, lemme tell you something else......Mt calvary is raising leaders. You're Mayor and YOUR NEW Police Leadership. as well as long time policeman. You need to investigate in PERSON before you put your FAT fingers on a keyboard and talk"u know what".
Try doing something to change the world instead of tearing down.

at lot of you are small minded. You've been in youngstown too long. You've never seen anything other than negativity so that's all you reproduce.
WAKE UP. The world is bigger than 224 and 422! stupid
