    Police: Armed robber killed crossing I-95 on foot

    By Peter Mucha

    Inquirer Staff Writer

    Here's a crook who didn't get away, according to Delaware State Police.

    Yesterday, police named Marckia Wilkerson, 26, of Wilmington as the alleged armed robber who wound up being fatally struck by an SUV near Newark, Del., early New Year's Day.

    It all began as a stickup in a parking lot.

    About 2:20 a.m., a patron of the Social Club at 30 Blue Hen Drive was approached by Wilkerson, who asked for money, according to police.

    As the patron took out his wallet, Wilkerson showed a gun and demanded all of the victim's money, police said.

    The victim complied, then ran, and Wilkerson fired several shots, police said.

    Wilkerson then got in a car with a female driver and a male passenger, and they drove toward I-95.

    Meanwhile, the robbery victim had decided to chase after them.

    When the car with Wilkinson hit a curb, a tire blew.

    The three fled on foot into tall grass on the side of I-95, police said.

    The victim stopped and searched a bit, then drove off to call police.

    That's when Wilkerson and company apparently decided to cross I-95.

    He made it across the northbound lanes, but was struck by a 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe in the southbound lanes.

    Wilkerson was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Too bad it wasn't the victim driving the Tahoe...

    Hmmm....when you buy a Ford, do you know that you are contributing to the United Nations cause of banning firearms around the world? Watch this...


    YouTube - NRA News: UN Doomsday Treaty With Ginny Simone

    this is what I got from one poster...

    I went to the IANSA web site and at the bottom of the "About Us" page is this:

    *How is IANSA funded?*

    IANSA’s work has been supported by funders including the Governments of UK, Belgium, Sweden and Norway, as well as the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, Compton Foundation, Ploughshares Fund, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Open Society Institute, Samuel Rubin Foundation and Christian Aid.


    Under the list of supporters, along with the UK, Belgium, and the Rockefeller Foundation, is the Ford Foundation! The Ford Foundation? Please tell me I'm wrong but does this mean that when I purchase a Ford product that I'm supporting the IANSA?

    I hope the Tahoe was not damaged.

    The Ford Foundation and the Ford Motor Company are now seperate entities... Has been since 1976 when Henry Ford II resigned from the foundation board.
