  Arrest Made In Repchic Murder

Youngstown police arrested one man and are searching for another in connection with the shooting death of 75-year-old Thomas Repchic


Aubrey F. Toney, 29.


Kevin D. Agee Jr.

By Ashley Luthern



Police arrested one Youngstown man Tuesday and are searching for another in the shooting death of 74-year-old Thomas J. Repchic.

Kevin D. Agee Jr., 25, faces charges of aggravated murder and felonious assault. Agee will be arraigned today in Youngstown Municipal Court.

Police on Tuesday night were looking for Aubrey F. Toney, 29, of Youngstown, in the murder.

Repchic and his wife, Jacqueline A., 74, were driving near the intersection of Philadelphia Avenue and Southern Boulevard after leaving St. Dominic Church when someone fired six to 12 shots at the couple’s Cadillac. Jacqueline Repchic was wounded in her leg, since amputated.

Police Chief Jimmy Hughes said the murder was “clearly a case of mistaken identity.”

The individuals involved had a dispute — maybe a turf war or drug-related — and were looking for the driver of a 1990 Cadillac, the same type of vehicle as the Repchics’, Hughes said. He added that police have identified a suspect with a vehicle similar to the Repchics’.

Mayor Jay Williams said he wanted members of St. Dominic Church,

77 E. Lucius Ave., to “rest assured” that they were not being targeted.

Agee was arrested Tuesday afternoon at 537 Garfield St., off Glenwood Avenue, said Capt. Rod Foley.

A second man was arrested at that location on unrelated drug charges.

Two pit-bull dogs, weapons and loads of ammunition were confiscated from the Garfield Street house.

The arrest came only a day after police located the 1999 maroon Dodge Durango used in the drive-by shooting. The owner of that vehicle is not a suspect in the killing, Hughes said.

Foley commended the Youngstown investigative team and said that many useful tips came in from the Crime Stoppers phone line.

On Sunday, Williams issued a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the city’s 19th homicide.

“We don’t know how much information we got in was related to the reward, but at the end of the day, there is one individual in custody and we’re seeking information on any others,” Williams said. “For those who did provide information, we’re certainly exceptionally grateful.”

Hughes said police are working to curb gang violence.

“We made other arrests today,” he said. “... We have stepped up enforcement.”

An attempted burglary at the Repchics’ Trenton Avenue home Saturday, the same day of the shooting, is unrelated to the murder investigation and appears to be an opportunistic crime, Hughes said.

“In the most unfortunate of situations, it is fortunate that we have men and women of the Youngstown Police Department who will act swiftly and decisively,” Williams said. “We want to send a message that this will not stand in this community. It will not be tolerated.”

Calling hours for Thomas Repchic are from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday at Vaschak-Kirila Funeral Home, 3100 Canfield Road in Youngstown. The funeral Mass is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday in St. Dominic Church.

So these pieces of crap, and that is what they are, CRAP, are so stupid they can't tell the difference between two elderly white people and their gang bangin' thug rivals? (And that's not a racial issue, that is commenting on their stupidity)

Too bad Agee didn't die when he got shot in the drive-by in 2001. The world would be a much better place w/o him.

Let's hope he takes a dirt nap soon. Same for those pieces of crap who killed the real estate agent.

Won't be long before one of Agee's garbage friends or relatives is on tv wailing about how "He a good boy. " or some other such similar nonsense.

How can anyone feel safe in Youngstown Mr. Mayor? Mistaken identity or not, these victims did not deserve to be shot and the man killed. When are you gonna do something about these black gangstas with guns dealing drugs? When are you goinna ask Stricknine and Odumba for help to police your streets and cleanup the gangstas since it's obvious the YPD can't do the job by themselves? How can anyone at the church ever feel safe?

Looks like the answer is one giant search warrant for ALL the houses in Youngstown. Its amazing at what authorities do pull out of these houses WHEN arrests are made -- fighting pit bulls, weapons, ammunition, drugs, cash (and the house is usually Section 8, which means the family is getting its rent paid by the taxpayers).

To simply say 'Boys and girls we are lucky, the cause was mistaken identity' doesn't cut it.

The real tragedy is the murder. The bigger tragedy is that this happened at 1:00pm in the afternoon and no one is really safe driving in our city.

We definitely need more patrol cars for the south side, were the majority of murders in Youngstown occurs. I know of two active drug houses on the south side that residents report to the police all the time, but nothing happens. What good does it do to call the police when nothing happens? How do we get these undesirables out of our neighborhoods?

"I am GLAD to see people here finally saying things the way they are instead of sugar coat denying the issues in this town."

There is no denying the issue and it's black on black violence that is destroying this city. Of the 19 homicides how many were black on black, gangs, drugs, etc.?
Those two pictures above are 2 useless peices of filthy trash that you would love to take behind a building and put them down slowly and painfully. "Mistaken Identity" what a pitiful excuse.
And dude makes over $250,000, maybe he can afford the dream team, minus one lawyer.

And our useless mayor once again:

<<"Mayor Jay Williams said he wanted members of St. Dominic Church, 77 E. Lucius Ave., to “rest assured” that they were not being targeted.">>

Didn't the fool say this after Angelinas murder?

<<“We don’t know how much information we got in was related to the reward, but at the end of the day, there is one individual in custody and we’re seeking information on any others,” Williams said. “For those who did provide information, we’re certainly exceptionally grateful.”>>

ALL of the information was a result of the reward. When it comes to $$$ signs, even mommy and grandma will rat out the wanna be thugs. But that is a good thing if thats what it takes.

Our useless police chief:

<<"“We made other arrests today,” he said. “... We have stepped up enforcement.”>>

And what about tomorrow and the next day, week, month? Until another senseless murder takes place, it'll be the same Ole same Ole??

<<“We want to send a message that this will not stand in this community. It will not be tolerated.”>>

Useless mayor said the same thing after Angelinas murder. Real tough words mayor. Reading from a prewritten speech?? Grow a pair already!

What ever happened to this back in 1996????


btw GREAT job YPD for the swift action in getting these cockroaches.

I will bet that will make everyone feel much better knowing that these poor people were not singled out for this type of violence.
It sure gives me the warm fuzzy feeling knowing that this was just a random event that WE ALL could have been subject to.

Great point Mr. Mayor, you damn fool.

MISTAKEN ID? Are you kidding me? How high do these "brothers" get, or just how stupid , to shoot a car because of it's color? That is color bias. Too bad the poor guy's caddy wasn't white or he would still be alive.
These Detroit decendant's -- current drug and gang criminals -- are like Al Quida. Take one out, two come in. They have NO FEAR, no brains, and no future. Let's get the Italians and Irish , who turned back the KKK -- THE gang of the day -- in Niles in 1920 to take back this valley. Cops have to play by rules, federal or otherwiae, and justice and prevention are too late now. Drastic , surgical measure need to be taken by the citizens. These "brothers" MUST FEAR,something, and they don't! The "education", sorry to say, is off the table, too late, and will never work. I bet (*and would donate) that if law enforcement let the "boys" take care of this, within a year, these pukes would be gone or going -- a small price to pay.

I thank God I don't live in Youngstown. I didn't like it 50 years ago and I still don't like it! I feel bad for the decent citizens that are trapped by their own economical situations and have to stay in that sewer! But the sewer is moving into other areas that once were considered 'decent' and 'fairly safe'. They are like a cancer that just keeps invading other parts of the body, intent on destroying.
I will bet that you will find so many of these gang members are from single parent homes, parents that have never cared for education, rules and regulations or bettering themselves. They are most likely welfare recipients, born of welfare recipients who think the rest of society owes them just because of the rotten luck of being born poor and maybe being born black, blaming others because they didn't have the guts to get a good education...one that was readily available...and get a job and become a part of that society they felt was their downfall. These are people who want the easy way out and think society owes them!!!
The drug issue is a big problem...easy mony for someone too lazy to get a decent job that pays not enough. The drugs alter a person's mind, their ability to make right decisions; it kills their conscience, if they had one in the beginning. There needs to be a bigger push to alleviate the drug situation all over this entire nation.
I truly feel there are so many problems in this country that are related. Too many illegals taking jobs that should be taken for our own citizens. Too many people on welfare/SSI/Disability that could take these jobs...provided any of them had any pride and was willing to take these jobs just so they could become productive citizens. We have lost good jobs in this country and who do we thank for that mess? We have lost so much family structure, some due to laziness and the world-owes-me-a-living attitude. But on the other end are the people who want so much; Dad and Mom both working, having kids and letting someone else raise them. Family values are going down the old shute, sucking the life out of our country.
As I said, thank God I live where crime is not bad, but I fear that Youngstown is moving out farther and farther and will eventually be in my back yard. I don't have the answers but surely there are some people who do. And it isn't going to be just ONE solution; there are many issues that have brought this country down and it isn't just in Youngstown. We all need to humble ourselves and pray for these issues, for the positive rejuvenation of our great country. We need to move back to God.

Who would have ever thought that people would long for the day when the mafia ruled and the only ones that had to fear for their lives were the wise guys. Of course, it was the mafia that sold all the drugs to the "coloreds" and destroyed their families. As they said in the meeting of the five families in The Godfather:

"I don't want it near schools - I don't want it sold to children! That's an infamia. In my city, we would keep the traffic in the dark people - the colored. They're animals anyway, so let them lose their souls."

But, rest assured St Dominic's parishioners, you are not being targeted! That is unless you drive a Cadillac like one of the gangbangers or have two nickels in your pocket. Don't worry Mayor "Mars Attack" Williams Jimmy "Clueless" Hughes are protecting you!

No, they rather run there little gangs, sell there drugs, kill INNOCENT people, have numerous babies by numerous women, cruise up and down in there pimp mobiles, cranking there rap music and think the world OWES them.
It's really about time Y-town takes a stand and get rid of the scum that is making it tough for the hard working people or college students trying to better themselves to make a decent living raising a family and living a normal life in a normal city.
We need leadership on all areas that have the guts to stand against these worthless, useless, filthy cockroaches and quit catering to them.

this was a very tragic murder that shouldnt have happened . but so is the tragic murder of the black realtor by the three white guys.but what i found disturbing or maybe disappointing is all the racial comments about the killing of mr repchic but amazingly nothing on the other murder .is one worse than the other ? i hope not but it sounds like public opinion makes it that way.all these posts say that this is how and why they left ytown because of the violence and i dont have a problem with that because im black and i live with my wife and four kids in liberty .but because im black should i classify all white people in the same vein as those three white guys ,that look like white supremasists and sterotype every white person as white trash that i meet.no because thats not fair to the great white friends that ive made through the years .we need to figure out the root cause of why all these pieces of garbage do what tthey do. oh and by the way my brother was killed in 1988 by a white man the guy got only 2 years in jail because crooked philomena was the prosecuting attorney and didnt do his job.but even with all that i dont criminalize or hate every white person on earth. hell, my one daughters god father is white! i cant avoid or hate or slander every white person because i was wronged by 3 white individuals .theres good people and bad people in all races but it wont stop me from loving my white friends just as much as my black friends.rest in peace mr repcic and mrs martin

God bless you, Goman, for your true and fair comments--race baiting is not going to help this situation. Both the men who killed Vivian Martin and the men who killed Mr. Repchic make me understand what evil is and certainly want the criminal justice system to do the right thing. by punishing them to the full extent of the law. But my question is, what are the root causes of this evil and what can be done about it? Youngstown has become a cesspool--lousy schools, not enough law enforcement personnel, parents who either have no parenting skills and do not care or are working against a mountain of evil influences in their efforts to raise good children and the evil is spreading throughout the Mahoning Valley. I know we are angry and want vengeance, but how can anyone feel anything buit anguish at this hopeless situation?

Everyone has summed up basically what I want to say and I couldnt agree with ysugirl08 anymore that this was no accident...people were intended to be killed,wether it was the wrong people or not.

All Youngstown does is talk. I think we are afraid to take on real crime in this city. Pat yourselves on the back for pulling over a few people during your DWI stops. Yes this is effective but I want to see more stories about these total wastes of life being arrested and throw in jail. If I know where the crime is,and you know where the crime is,why does the YPD look the other way? Start patrolling these streets and stop driving up and down the streets of downtown looking for a random intoxicated 20-something.

I mean lets face it,crime will never stop in Yompton. Does that mean we should just sit back and watch innocent people die week after week? Arresting 2 guys is just the start and even though I commend you for it you will receive more recognition when you arrest 100's of these creatures,not just 2 at a time. Time to kick down the door to this society and let people know who is really in charge? And if not,then just let innocent people keep dieing.

ysugirl08, my post was to show the thinking of some of the lawyers in this town. It most certainly is murder by the shooter and also old "one eye." Of course "one eye" may say, "I didn't really think he was gonna shoot him, I thought he was just gonna scare him"

Notice how quickly tips came in when there was a fat reward. No honor among thieves or murderers.

There is gonna be a new set of rims and a new gold fence in someone's future.

Perhaps the key is to put all money impounded into a reward fund along with the money from auctioning confiscated goods and vehicles.

"Again, where is the black leadership? Maybe if someone starts killing their parishioners leaving church they'll speak up?"

Good point, where was the outrage on the filthy trash that brutally murdered Vivian Martin and the other homicides in the black community?? Rewards offered?? None that I could recall. The only 2 rewards were for Angeline Fimognari and Thomas Repchicchic.
Did the black preachers of the community try to track down Strickland and others like the St. Doms paster did? Why not? Its seems like that is a way of life and just accept it as it is. Not right but thats what it seems like.

Not about being racist or such, soooo tired of that excuse, it's facts and if people can't see that, then there blind. Read the daily papers over the country and what majority commits the crimes? It's right there. Everyday.
And before you rant and rave about racism, there are white,blue,yellow,green,purple animals/trash everywhere but not the majority. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I think we all need to take a good hard look at the people who are running the city of Youngstown,I have been overwhelmed with the violence. I worry sick about my daughter who lives in boardman ,but very close to the south side line.I am so sick of all the southside johnnys who think they own this town.My father grew up near wilson high where everybody loved there neighbors. Then people moved in from the east side and now,a few years later now its trashed . I have a sister who lives in austintown that says there moving from the southside and are now trashing austintown. hmmmmm sound familiar to any of you .Well here is a solution, I say call in the humane society who killed all those innocent cats last week from ladies cat society and do away with Yo .police and the courts. They will have every little disgusting critter that causes a crime dead in no time and maybe even if they didn't do anything , Ya see with them you don't have a chance in hell.I say go for it humane society and how about if we throw in PETA. You could clean up youngstown in a heartbeat.

The way I see it is it's attitudes like this which is the reason why you have elderly white people being targeted. Youngstown was a criminal town far before the mayor came on board. You better check your history. You didn't see no black people coming on here calling those white boys who killed the real estate agent racial names yet you want to associate everything with color. People had the nerve to defend them by saying they were nice boys who you could talk to in the neighborhood and they would help out when it was needed. Yea, it's true they have killed everything that looks like them now they have starting killing you people. It's not right what is going on in Ytown but until people like the cowards on here start doing something positive about it instead of getting on the internet talking a bunch of nonsense then nothing will be solved. Do you think these thugs really care what you think aboout them by calling them black hoodlums and trash? No they really don't b/c they don't even go on this site and if you called them that to their faces I guess you can about figure your outcome. Anger is one thing but action speaks volumes.

These cowards are doing the same thing that the Mob who some of you want to come back and take over your little messed up town, did some time ago. Like Walter Sebchak posted, the mob are the ones who paved the way for this type of life in Ytown in the first place. They are who these Black lowlife Trash as some of you call them, pattern and emulate. Why not call it how it is? Talk to people who lived in Ytown in the 50s and 60s when the mob was running things there, maybe they will tell you the truth of what life was like. You get stuff so twisted on this site and that is why I come on here mainly to laugh at some of the dumb stuff that some of you post because it really does sound very STUPID. Who wants criminals running their town? And to answer your question censorship, no it doesn't answer nothing for me. Get up from behind your keyboard and march your whining behind down to city hall and make your voice heard and try and clean up your messed up city that has been messed up for years and realize that it isn't the black people who corrupt Youngstown! This is really messed up and all it is doing is racially dividing Ytown which will add yet another problem to a messed up town. Good luck because Youngstown needs all the prayers that it can get right now. My prayers go out to the woman and the man who lost their lives and to the wife and families who are left behind to deal with this mess.

Where my most sincere condolences goes out to Ms. Repchic and hope her a swift mental, physical, emotional and spiritual recovery from such a horrific ordeal. I also render condolences to the family and close friends of the Repchic's whom were indefensibly victimized having lost this man as family and friend.

Where as an outsider with no personal knowledge of these victims nor their attackers. As a human I lament that such a tragic act of murderous savagery should have never happened.

Where it's socially unnerving and realizing PD needs to attempt to provide some public assurance for such an unsettling act. I'll not dispute what the PD are going on or their motive is in presenting the angle that they have. But as I see it from having done a thorough review of whats available I'm not sold on that was any case of " Mistaken Identity ".

See like all others that's heard of this tragedy it drew my attention also. Thus for the sake of accuracy and public safety I objectively combed through it as meticulously and without bias as possible. Which I find that there's entirely too much there to ignore. As to discard as immaterial periphery and either jump too or buy into any conclusion that this sinister act was some mistaken identity motive of happenstance.

Although I am conclusively sold on the idea, that this was in no way any retaliation. For the murderous accosting of Ms. Martin nor the plotted armed robbery of that other Realtor and attempt on another that was white.

Whom by collective sum the equally depraved and criminally driven despot Brooks brothers and their scum caliber hunchback variety henchman pulled off either,.. BY A LAUNDRY LIST OF FACTORS THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO CORRELATION OR CONNECTION WHAT SO EVER.

Yet for clarity I'm not implying any wrong doing by the victims in lifestyle, locality or personal affairs. But there's a mountain of things presented in this specific ordeal. That I'm looking at that doesn't conclusively sell me on any mistaken Identity motive,.. NOT EVEN CLOSE !!!

You're beneath the worth of a trash nourished snake. I mean albeit tragic and emotion filled. Here there's rightfully a total and unified outrage. Of vocalizing absolute non acceptance for the despicable acts of some incredulous criminality driven subhumans murderously attacking an elderly couple.

Yet here you are disrespectfully spewing your race baiting affliction and daring to try to desecrate the couples horrid ordeal as your very own political football.

To do such a thing you're beneath pathetic and yet with like in the many other instances that you've tried to force your ilk and filth on other peoples cases. Out of respect for the family and friends of the Repchic's as well as the community I'll abstain from putting you in your place here.

But be it known that by your being up to your same old diabolically despicable self. You've now managed to have stooped to a new low.

Where to deliberately pollute the heartfelt pondering[s] and sincere condolence rendered sentiments of those mourning the deceased and surviving widow.

With your manipulative efforts to start a race war via inflammatory innuendo shows you don't mean anybody any good and neither wholesome spirit, decency, respect or sense are in noway associated with you,.. HOW DARE YOU !!!

Out of respect for the Repchic's, and the families and friends whom are directly connected feeling this loss. I apologize to them for your presence regardless to my having no like, association with nor anything else to do with you.

By your being so callously disrespectful by willfully attempting such a thing. Solidifies that you're no better than those other damn demons whom physically attacked this couple,.. and neither race nor gender changes nor separates that.

My god some of you are disgusting,..

As a precursor I'll ask for forgiveness and understanding from the Repchic's and their family and close friends for my interjection. As to re-address some abominable individuals here for their careless content, context, character and conjecture.

See where I'm less unsettled to see it's not many partaking in racial and political idiocy here. However, those whom are makes it unquestionably apparent that comprise those who's doing it. Are oblivious to how heartless they're displaying themselves as having no respect for these victims or even what happened.

You make it evident that you're too dysfunctionally simple, vile, warped and morbid to recognize the truth that people are people as individuals. Just like not all whites embrace the Brooks brothers or Cooper it's damn well known that equally not all blacks in anyway condone or embrace what Agee, Toney or Houser has done.

See those individuals has accosted and victimized those of all races. They don't target victims based on race they target people via opportunity. For which you appalling individuals partaking in racial barbs to skew that are merely accomplices for the manners of how they criminally exploit a groundwork that YOU provide them cover and concealment,.. you're to be DAMNED for that.

Where in contrast a unified community of unconditional opposition. Those that does things like what was done stand no damn chance and ALL would be better and safer for it,.. and THAT'S not opinion.

See the comforting fact is no matter what race those individuals are they'd get { and have } gotten turned in. Not only by people of good heart, wholesome spirit and honest character. But those whom turned them in were and are of all races. See the FACTS prove that and it's without dispute,.. we're just THAT DIFFERENT than those of you.

There's no Black, White, Hispanic, Greek, Asian, Jewish, Islamic or catholic " Leaders " needed to assume accountability for someone or anyone's actions via bearing a surface affiliation or similarity. So any of those guys being mentioned as " Black leaders " merely operate out of their own churches,.. THAT'S IT !!!

Well said Nunya....it just distubs me that some people would blame a race of people for a person's actions. Not evry black person in Youngstown got together and voted that these idiots go out and violent the elderly couple nor I believe that a group of whites did that toward the lady realtor. I am sure both of these victims had friends of different races who miss them and are equally as angry as their own races are. You have some people who turn evrything into a race and Obama issue. Youngstown is a very ran down and poor oppressed community and the only thing that it really has going for it presently is YSU which is doing very well. High crime is very prevalent in these type of areas because there aren't any decent paying jobs, properties are abandoned, respect for life and others are lost, and the moral support is very little. Once economic development pick up and decent people decide to revive Youngstown then maybe things will improve for the city. Youngstown has a lot of law abiding, working class, professional, Godfearing, and respectable people who I personally know. Also, it's not up to the clergy to come out and save every black female and male who gets into trouble when they don't know anything about the person. Some of these people never stepped foot into a church in their entire life and it shows.

These problems affect all communities and if you dont want to help better the black community then we will not see the community as a whole improve. Afterall we are only as strong as our weakest link and sadly the black community is the weak link for the most part. The problem is that the community doesn want to fix itself because it feels its a good place to live. There is no accountability and unfortunately there are no MLKs and MALCOLMS to lead the community. There are only leaders who claim constant racism and not accountability by the young blacks in the community.

Not saying hold the black leaders accountable for anyones actions, but obviously the young men are not taking the responsibility of there own actions (excuses-no jobs,poverty,no father,no father figure and on and on...) So how come some responsible person overcomes these obstacales but the majority resort to murder,drugs,violence,crime, etc.
So if they don't take responsibility for themselves who does???
Look at the crimes committed on a daily basis, they get a slap on the wrist, and go right back out doing it again and again, prison is just like a revolving door, your somebody if you have more then one number. It's got to stop but it won't unless they get it through there thick skulls people are dying for NO REASON and the so called black leaders don't do nothing about it. But they get going over the stupid issues but not the violence. And why is that?

OMG, Youngstown has been the pits for years, Now all of a sudden its Jay Williams fault and the state of the US is Obama's fault? Wow it couldn't have been any of the "white" politicans that created the mess and left it for the "black" politicans to clean up , could it? Oh by the way, I'm "white". Get a grip or get a job. How can you sit around all day and criticize people and look at you, you dummies.

All must understand people of all races are up in arms about the crime and discord in Youngstown. Readers may not be aware but I've been told by several people who work in public housing 85 to 90 percent of section 8 housing is located on Youngstown's Southside. The administration of these programs live in the suburbs and are not monitoring the people they give housing too on our tax dollars. There was an article in the Vindicator several weeks ago the Mayor and the director of public housing and section 8 made an agreement not to allow section 8 homes to be inspected by the city's landlord inspection program why is that I ask because those are the homes which should be inspected first to remove the scum and trash who live there. The Mayor agreed not to inspect these dwellings and the majority of the southside is section 8 we as tax paying citizens should be up in arms about this. The public housing administrator whose name is Scott I believe is not from this area so what is his investment or concern and the mayor and anyone else who agreed to this proposal should be angry about this. Again we allow those who have no ambition or drive to rule the rest of us. Also, when these type of crimes occur we should know the history of the family and especially the mother that is where the fault lies, these ignorant people should kill the people who brought them into the world and forgot about them, abandoned them, never wanted them or just didn't love them enough, the world should not have to pay. I am tired of giving away my/our tax dollars to anyone who never wanted anything better for themselves or their families. There are good people on the Southside homeowners who have always had pride in theirselves and their homes they are victims too to the plight and destruction of section 8 housing in our neighborhoods. Mayor Williams and Mr. Scott should be made to live in the heart of the Southide or they alone should be made to make some section 8 inspections on the structures they failed to allow to be inspected on the southside (something smells fishy to me)

There are about 15 of us who live in Florida that were long time members of St. Dominics Church. In fact, when I was a kid we would stop at Philadelphia and Cottage Grove and hop the train right by the Church and take it to the Southern Park Mall.

That was a CRIME back then (1970's and 80's) in our neighborhood.

I wonder if the train still runs? If so, are the gangs robbing it too??

From what i have heard from the police dept., unofficially of course, is that she was targeted b/c she was a witness in the Houser case. They waited outside the church for her to leave then ambushed the vehicle she was in. Now I am not sure why publicly they are saying "mistaken identity" when their dept is saying otherwise privately.

and for any and all information when going to the One Stop located at the welfare office in the basement..whenever you go thru the welfare office to get to the One Stop (which help you get a job), there are more whites filling up the welfare area (in line) to get assistant then there are black...also in the lower Southside there are more young whites moving into the are and causing trouble, but we never hear about that, and working and dealing with addicates on a daily bases the majority are young whites from suburs...who's parents also turn a blind eye..So once again I'm a little confused who is the troublemakers? Race issue is outdated..Come on into 2010

@ fedup2010

You appear to be attempting to reason with such haplessly racist idiots. That's determined to make all crimes and social shortcomings racially fueled inferences.

Be it known that where your effort is noble. Those you're trying to reach are totally worthless to themselves. To include irrelevant to sensible accord, immune to bearing any intellect.

Which renders them useless to being of any assistance in society, the world or exchanging the goodness from within mankind.

Their objective is one of hoping to compel others to hate by race and selectively manipulate by gender. They're sick like that and via not sharing their affliction.

The only thing I can think it's driven by is having been fed a false line of superiority. Which when reality settles in to explode that myth.

They feel they need to lash out alleging outlandish slant to project their stilted silliness. Then get angered when more sensible beings recognize how ridiculous they are as such an obscure individual.

As for the numbers of individuals seeking assistance from city, state, federal and independent assistance providers. It's my hope they receive it and there's to be no difference or deference directed regarding to their race.

What the racists want is a mass smattering of getting others aligned with faltering. To hurling and partaking in exchanging racial barbs and disparaging caricatures. Because they don't want a civil society.

Which only one of absolute worthlessness would revel in such, Because that confusion, chaos and diversion obscures the fact. That such an individual themselves being no good to anyone.

Therefore they need everyone else at racial gender, faith base or even sexuality fueled odds,.. and preferably distrustful and even fighting as to manipulate them all.

See they're rotten and worthless as it gets and they're angered most when they can't get a fight or fights fueled between others by their prompting started,.. they're just that useless, worthless and intolerable.

It's not true Nunya !

"Their objective is one of hoping to compel others to hate by race and selectively manipulate by gender."

I don't believe in hanging a white killer and letting the black one slide or vice versa . Criminal intolerance is being warped by you into racial intolerance .

@ fedup2010

You're welcomed,..

See to be the best you, I and any and everyone else can be. Is holding steadfast to absolutely refusing to falter to become in anyway like those racist, sexist and or convenience crafting prejudicial pig spitter's. That askew to spew what they'd love to be infectious brews to pander for partakers.

Those like the goon gallery of stupid Stanley, Senseless_Sh_t, redskirt, Wally_Slobshak and a sparse host of others like them. Absolutely hate when such sensibilities that subjugate them into nonsensical silliness are spoken or implored. As it usurps their absurdity of fanned flatulence burps into their own downwind of dunder directionally. .

They hate it because in contrast by character, content and and conviction. It leaves them no defense, levity nor any semblance of respect by contrast of recognition.

So learn to utilize them as jokes and develop such an artful ability. That even though they intentionally entered in terribly bad taste. You can add spice to life by making the process of ravaging them and their ridiculousness. So tastefully in tattering the troglodytes so deliciously.

That it becomes a viewers treat to have them warmed over or frigidly chilled in way of serving them up as worthless " whatnot's " and non appetizing " thingies " to toy with at the table { at will, random and by happenstance },.. LMAO !!!

It's an art that I implore all get into. Because it's mental exercise and character toning that gives the more primitive abstract workings. A more Avant Garde type of nuance. As opposed to repatriating their nonsense.
