    Shot/killed while skateboarding in "good" neighborhood/Virginia Beach

    20-year-old shot in Beach neighborhood dies | WVEC.com Norfolk - Hampton Roads

    VIRGINIA BEACH -- A 20-year-old shot late Thursday afternoon on Old Forge Road died from his injuries.
    No video with this story but on the news last night they showed a skateboard in the crime scene. No suspects. Apparently a popular and well liked young man in a community not accustomed to violence.

    Not stated, but the victim is apparently caucasian, the video report showed all his friends and his GF as caucasian. Sadly I speculate this may be another possible revenge type shooting, a result of the recent "racial" media event down in Florida that shall remain unspoken here at DC.

    We should all remain on high alert for mob violence and random ambushes during these uncertain times.

    The article (at least when I read it right now) was one of those so scarce in details it just makes you want to beat the reporter up. They are in such a hurry to report that something happened that they don't give any information. That is so common these days.

    Sound bites. We're living in a world of bits and bites of information. Anything longer than that and we lose interest. We've become accustomed to receiving snippets of information. Just like those commercials where someone brags "that was so 15 seconds ago!" BTW, I hate those.

    Uh, how did you overlook that the picture of the victim is a man with dark skin and the name Ameer Kareem Hamid Baksh. Doesn't appear to be caucasian or a "possible revenge type shooting, a result of the recent "racial" media event down in Florida" to me.

    "VIRGINIA BEACH --Va. Beach Police are looking for the person who shot and killed a 20-year-old man late Thursday afternoon." and the end of the article says "I wanted to, like, actually, throw up, 'cause it's like, wow," Amanda Bagin told 13News. "It's amazing, especially, that you found out it's just your sister's friend. It's sad."

    well do they have them or not... I am lost

    There wasn't a picture when the OP posted the link. It wasn't even there when I looked originally.

    And what eloquence of speech the two Bagins have.

    "Baksh
    Last name origin & meaning:
    Muslim (Iranian, also found in Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh): from a Persian personal name, Bakhsh, based on the Persian word bakhsh meaning ‘fate’, ‘destiny’, ‘portion’, ‘share’."

    I'm pretty sure all these groups are generally regarded as being of the the race commonly referred to as white.

    I googled that and found thats true. What a surprise. Still doubt its revenge over Trayvon Marting considering how dark his skin is.

    I used to live pretty close to where this happend. The reason I moved away from Virginia Beach was because of the crime. I lived in the same neighborhood where this happend, and later in Green Run which is a bad neighborhood. The two neighborhoods are pretty close to each other.

    ^ I'm Green Run HS class of '85 although I lived very close to Chesapeake/ VB border at that time...crazy that I drove right past Kempsville HS to get there...not really complaining though.

    I saw the story. The possible "revenge threats" have been on my mind. Working in the construction trade I'm often in neighborhoods that I'm not familiar with. Always new surroundings to challenge my SA skills.

    So dark-skinned whites get a pass from racial retaliation, if and when it does indeed happen?

    I seriously doubt that youts in hoodies are aware that Iranians are considered white. I have six years of college and didn't know that.
