This crime perfectly highlights the differences between blacks and whites: a caring, altruistic white man checks to see whether his neighbor is okay, then a savage, impulsive negro murders him in cold blood… while robbing the neighbor’s house.
Same species my arse!
A Barstow man who was shot eight times last week when he went to check on an elderly neighbor during a burglary died from his injuries at a hospital on Thanksgiving Day, his wife said.
Patrick Smith, 41, succumbed to injuries he suffered in the Nov. 14 shooting in his neighborhood in the 800 block of Keith Street, wife Elizabeth Smith said. He also leaves behind a 5-year-old son.
His alleged killer, identified by police as 18-year-old Leslie Hawkins, remains at large, according to Barstow Police Department officials and San Bernardino County booking records. Four other suspects, ranging in age from 15 to 17, were arrested near the scene in connection with the burglary.
Smith was shot when he went to check on an elderly woman who called him for help when she heard noises during a residential break-in shortly before 7 p.m., according according to Barstow police Capt. Andrew Espinoza Jr.
He was confronted by one of the burglars as he approached the elderly woman’s home and was shot, police said.
Police found and arrested the four teenage suspects in the area, Espinoza said. But the alleged gunman, later identified by police as Hawkins, eluded capture and has not been found.
Patrick Smith underwent multiple surgeries and fought hard for his life, Elizabeth Smith said. But he succumbed to his injuries at a hospital on Thursday.
Patrick Smith with family.
