Thank god the two teens survived!
That is soo crazy!!! I mean, man...as the lady said in the video if you can't be safe in church where can you be safe at? So sad...glad the teens survived!
My, my, my....Wow...This type crazy, shameful stuff has hit a new low!!!
My grandfather lived in the city of Richmond for over 40 years & I had visited there a few times.
Peace Be Still
Love & Blessings,
the church has got to get out there in the streets too.. or the
streets will come in to the church.. I've been saying it for years and years..
they can't just drive up in their nice cars, get their praise on and drive off..
they have to get out there in them streets and reach out to the people of those
I know that's right!
This made the news - I lived in North Richmond for many years - there were times that I would walk out of my house to check the mail and there were dead body's laid in the street.
This is sad that they went up in the church and shot it up but its no different then a church man or woman child or elderly sitting in there house getting popped for no reason. It shouldn't make news because it was in a church - what should always make news is that someone - another innocent has died at the hands of some ruthless - no heart but no parent either brothas and SISTAS. Yeah they are doing a lot of the killings in north as well - believe that!!!
It made the news because a church was involved - walk the streets when church is not in session and you have greater chance of dying for just looking like the wrong person or even worse - being black/brown.
The real issue is not the church - the real issue is, what can we do to save our youth? They made it to a church and now its all bad. Some of the most wicked brothas and sistas are in the church destroying souls every Sunday so what make it worse that someone shoots in it? The preacher shoots his mouth daily and souls are lost but who is looking out for those who the preach spit wrong stuff to? Die now or later, which is worse? Those who die not knowing better or those who died knowing better but still rejects?
I'm not trying to sound mean or heartless - but it is what it is - we need to stop blaming the church for those of us who know better. The church need to stop blaming the youth when they hold the banner of knowing better yet the children are not changing. What's real is that people need to grab their children, check their rooms, pull their pants up, raid their closets and get the guns out of the house and break them off!!!!
Our people will continue to die until we as the grown ups take responsibility for our actions and non-actions and handle up!!!
I've had more people die in North, Central and South Richmond (cousins) in 2 weeks then most people will witness in their life times. Parent up or shut up ...
I'm not trying to be foul but this problem I've brought here before - its a real issues and its not just about Rich-town or the No-ya but its happen in the Orleans, DC, Detroit, Compton, ATL, Saint Lou, Ark (Lil Rock, Ashdown, etc...) Oklahoma, TN, NY, MD, WV, VA, IL, OR, WA, etc ...
What do we do about it and how do we seal the damage?
THIS AINT THE FIRST CHURCH SHOOTING AND IT WILL NOT BE THE LAST.
Plea deal in wife's killing outside church
A man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for fatally shooting his
estranged wife in the parking lot of an East Oakland church, a prosecutor said
Matthew McCall, 43, of American Canyon is expected to be sentenced to 35
years to life in prison next month for killing Tanya McCall, 40, on March 11,
2007, as she walked to Sunday morning services at Acts Full Gospel Church at
1034 66th Avenue.
McCall entered his pleas this month to second-degree murder and an
enhancement for personally and intentionally discharging a firearm, said
Alameda County Deputy District Attorney L.D. Louis.
Police say McCall accosted his estranged wife as she walked toward the
church carrying a Bible. They argued briefly, and then he pulled a gun from his
waistband and shot her twice as she tried to run away, police said. Witnesses
who were on their way to the 8 a.m. service told police that he then walked
up to her fallen form and shot her twice more at close range.
McCall surrendered to police that night and was booked on suspicion of
murder. Witnesses identified him in a lineup, authorities said.

"After the police finished investigating the shooting, they continued on with the service" The preacher just needed to pass that plate one mo gin!
jesus saves.....yea right!
BUT WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO REACH THEM WITH.. I HOPE NOT SOME" SOME DUDE DIED FOR YOU" STUFF OR "THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH". NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE THINK THESE CHILDREN ARE SMART AND YOU CANT FOOL THEM WITH THE DOCTRINE NO MORE, THEY SEE RIGHT THRU IT. THEY ARE UNDERSTANDING THE STRONG SHALL SURVIVE AND IF THE CHURCH CANT FEEL THAT THEY IN FOR A RUDE AWAKENING.
