Lavelle Stanley convicted of aggravated murder

Published: Wed, June 25, 2014 @ 7:15 p.m.


A jury in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court took two hours to convict a man charged in the death of a man in November.

Lavelle Stanley, 24, of East Judson Avenue, was convicted of aggravated murder, attempted murder and felonious assault along with firearm specifications before Judge R. Scott Krichbaum.

Stanley was accused of killing Elliot Stewart, 25, and wounding his 26-year-old brother about 5:20 p.m. Nov. 15 outside a Southern Boulevard business.

Police said Elliot Stewart was shot after he tried to break up an argument between two women and that Stanley was upset Stewart intervened.

Jurors began hearing testimony Tuesday, heard closing arguments late Wednesday afternoon and returned their verdicts at 7 p.m., about two hours after they started deliberating.

Anybody who wants insight into why so many young Black men today feel they have a right to shoot somebody (whites especially) because they think their "pride" has been injured should read an essay written in the late 1950's by that darling of the Left Wing Intelligentsia Norman Mailer, entitled the "White Negro". In that essay, Mailer rationalizes the shooting of a white candy shop owner by two black hoods as, essentially, a killing that had "redeeming virtues"- it allowed the hoods to "express" themselves and made a "statement".

A man lay dead and two teenagers lives were ruined and Mailer justified their senseless act as "making a statement".

Here you see, in a nutshell, what 40 years of "situational ethics" and Left-wing Cant have brought us to. The young man in this case felt "disrespected" so he felt that entitled him to pick up a gun and blast away and so, now, one man is dead, another is wounded, and another young black man's life is ruined.

Norman Mailer may you turn in your grave- You Have A Lot to Answer For (along with the rest of the left-wingers who try to rationalize crime by calling it "necessary" or "justified".)
