In the 16th century, the Spanish and Portuguese managed, without gas chambers or bombs, to slaughter 150 million Indians in Latin America . With axes! That's a lot of work, sister. Even if they had church support, it was an achievement. So much so that the Dutch, English, French, and later Americans followed their lead and butchered another 50 million. 200 million dead in all! The greatest massacre in history took place right here. And not the tiniest holocaust museum. The history of mankind is a history of horrors.

Remy Girard, Les Invasions Barbares, 2003, film

America is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "Beyond Vietnam : A Time to Break the

Silence," 1967

The Root, funded under the leadership of Harvard elite, Dr. Henry Louis Gates, declares the latest shooting too "difficult to understand" (June 8, 2012). The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, no friend to the Black struggle for revolutionary change and democracy, quoted the city's tough-on-crime mayor Tim Barrett who lost his bid to unseat Gov. Scott Walker. The mayor vows to "investigate" the police's response to the murder of 13-year old Darius Simmons.

The "difficult to understand" in the Black bourgeoisie media are being "investigated" by the local authorities. You can rest assure that this outbreak of violence is under control. Besides, we expect the posse of notable Black leaders to arrive in Milwaukee shortly--go shopping!

What happened? Another Black child is dead by yet another white man, this time, 75-year old John Henry Spooner, yielding a firearm. Unlike Trayvon Martin who was walking on the block were his father lived but just too near Zimmerman's home, Simmons was in front of his home taking out the garbage. His mother recently moved her family to the Southside neighborhood, a better neighborhood, she thought, safer neighborhood.  

Along comes Spooner.    

Spooner is a member of the National Rifle Association and a collector of assorted guns and rifles. Someone buggerized his home and, according to him, stole a gun or two from his home. Three thousand dollars' worth of firearms--stolen!

Well, Spooner had been in the neighborhood a good ten years and remembers when it was all white and now--well now, it is changing.

He arrives at Darius Simmons home and confronts the thirteen year old. He must have stolen his guns!

Darius' mother comes out of the house and stands with her son. She tries to tell Spooner that they are new and that neither her son nor she knows of any burglary or stolen weapons.     

This is not what Spooner wants to hear from these two people. Terrorists? He steps back no less than five feet and fires directly at Darius Simmons who turns to run away. He fires again. The bullet enters Darius' chest.   Darius is dead. According to the MJS, (June 5, 2012), the bullet "damaged ventricles of his heart before exiting his back."

But let us continue because things are not too clear, understandably!

The Milwaukee police arrive. Darius is on the ground, but they want the mother to allow them to search the house. For two hours "while the boy lay dead," (MJS), that is, while the boy lay dead, police searched for Spooner's weapons! Again, the police searched for Spooners' 3,000 worth of weapons, and in the process of searching, wretched the family's home!
