Since blacks kill whites on a daily basis in this country, don’t expect to see this story above the fold in many newspapers:
A friend of an American teenager accused of killing two British tourists in 2011 said on Monday that he told her he shot the men even though they pleaded for their lives, claiming to be lost.
Shawn Tyson, 17, is accused of killing James Kouzaris and James Cooper in April of 2011. He is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and could face life in prison if convicted.
Can you think of any other 17-year-old punks recently involved in shootings? Here’s a clue: you probably know him by a picture that was taken when he was 12 or so and still looked innocent, or one that was heavily doctored.
Yesterday, 18-year-old Latrece Washington testified that Tyson told her he saw the two tourists walking through a housing project in Sarasota, drunk.
James Kouzaris and James Cooper were found shirtless and with their trousers down but with their wallets and a small amount of money
Washington testified that Tyson said he intended to rob the two men, but the men said they had no money.
‘He said “Well since you ain’t got no money I got something for your ass,”’ Washington recalled Tyson saying on the day after the killings.
Tyson told Washington that the men begged for their lives and one said, ‘please let me go home, I’m lost,’ she said.
Recounted Washington: ‘He shot one of them in the side and one of them fell instantly and the other one was crying for his life. He shot him.’
The motive was racial:
Also on Monday, another witness, Jermaine Bane, said Tyson accidentally called him the night of the slayings, and Bane heard Tyson say to someone ‘Who are those crackers walking past the park?’ Shortly after that, Bane testified he heard gunshots. He described a cracker as a white person.
In stark contrast, George Zimmerman committed no crime, but merely defended himself from a punk who had attacked him and was bashing his head on the sidewalk. But since Zimmerman is a “white” Hispanic and Trayvon Martin is a member of the sacred race, he is a villain and his case is headline news.
If Obama had a son, would he look just like Shawn Tyson?
