    Another Unarmed Black Youth Shot & Killed. Darius Simmons was Only 13 Years Old *UPDATED*

    Just a few short months ago Hip-Hop journalist Davey D blogged about the 29 Black people that had been killed by police or those claiming to be security since 2012, 16 after the murder of Trayvon Martin. This was before police in Oakland, CA killed 18 year old high school senior Alan Blueford under very questionable circumstances. This morning I just got word from the Executive Director of the League of Young Voters, Biko Baker, that another Black youth was shot down, he was only 13 years old.
    Darius Simmons was by all accounts a good kid. The fun loving 6th grader was simply moving a garbage can in front of his home when his neighbor, 75 year old John Henry Spooner confronted him with a shotgun and accused him of stealing from his home. Darius, who was in school the time of the robbery, denied being involved with the theft. John Henry Spooner then proceed to shoot Darius in his chest, while he had his hands raise showing Spooner he was unarmed. His mom, who was watching in horror, ran to Darius to see if she could find a pulse, she couldn’t. Darius, 13 years old and unarmed, was murdered in cold blood in front of his mother.

    According to Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan, he had breakfast with Spooner an hour before the shooting and Spooner told him he suspected Darius of the crime and was upset that the police hadn’t done anything about it. Spooner then told the Alderman, that there were other ways of dealing with these problems. That qualifies as premeditated murder of a 13 year old boy. To make matters worse, the family only lived next to Spooner for a month.
    John Henry Spooner was arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide. A judge set cash bond of $300,000.
    “Black youth are being stereotyped, targeted, and killed by law enforcement and now community vigilantes. This is bigger than the Castle Doctrine (Stand your ground law) , this is about our country’s continued refusal to acknowledge that we are still suffering from the sins of our forefathers. And the more we try to push the racial boogieman under the cover, the more it is going to bite us in the ***.” – Biko Baker
    *UPDATE*
    Community Activist David Muhammad spoke with the family yesterday and sent me these corrections and information the family wants to get out.
    Spooner shot Simmons with a 9mm handgun five feet away from him in the chest, in front of his mother.
    Darius was shot once in the chest with his hands raised. He ran to escape and collapsed at the corner, while Spooner attempted to shoot him in the back, and tried to fire a third shot.
    After police arrived, Darius’s body remained on the sidewalk, while police questioned his mother, Patricia Larry, in a squad car for approximately two hours.
    During the police investigation of the shooting, they searched Ms. Larry’s home again. Finding nothing, they then proceeded to arrest his older brother for having truancy tickets.
    In contrast, Spooner’s family was allowed to go into the home and remove “items” despite it being the crime scene.
    John Spooner was given a $300,000 bail, (only $30,000 would have to be posted for him to be free). This is uncommon when the charge is murder in the first degree.

    well now,..its time for us's to do the same thing...We should stand our ground too.

    if they, white folks, have the right to shoot anybody, especially us's, and get away with it then us's should do the same.

    I ain't gonna tell you how it should be done but it's up to us's if we are going to sit around and keep mourning on every loss of our people or are we going to stand up and fight for our rights for our people and our own. It is soley up to us.

    It has gotten out of hand.

    Here in OKC,...in Bricktown, after the thunders won their game, people soared the streets, thousands of people, white people.

    A fight breaks out and then some shooting starts. 4 people get hurt, 1 died 3 critical injured. Guess what?...someone said a black person done it.

    Outta all those people, they gone pick 1 black boy and what makes it worst,..the camera was there but it wasn't working and they found him guilty. I couldn't believe it. The white newscaster said that he confessed. Bull crap! This case is still going on. And where was the NAACP when we need em?!

    I agree 100% but we got alot of punk *** people in our flock. A government is only legit for as long a people allow it. When we all get tire enough we will stand up. We need to pick up where the panthers left off...We need to stop legitimizing their laws and resist we need to start by demanding they free Marissa Alexander!!
