The Ugly Truth: Oklahoma Execution Victims Targeted Because They Were White 

The Ugly Truth: Oklahoma Execution Victims Targeted Because They Were White 

The brutal murder of two innocent men in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last month was initially thought to have been random, but prosecutors now suspect the black male who claimed responsibility killed the two men “execution style” because they were white!

61-year-old Carlton Gilford marched into Rudisill Library in North Hartford on the morning of April 18 and fatally shot 35-year-old Lundin Hatchcock in the back of the head, according to police.

Hatchcock was sitting at a computer desk, minding his own business.

The victim’s mother told KOTV-TV that her son was a selfless husband who had strong faith, loved God, and had a passion for helping other people, calling his slaying “a tragedy.”

But Gilford was not done with what now appears to be his racially motivated violence. Police say that the killer then drove to the nearby QuikTrip gas station, where he shot 55-year-old James McDaniel in the face — a brutal murder reportedly captured on surveillance cameras.

According to prosecutors, after McDaniel had collapsed to the ground, Gilford reloaded his weapon and shot him in “execution style” the head again.

After killing McDaniel, Gilford reportedly shot at a security guard inside the convenience store, who ultimately got out unscathed.

Police captured Gilford without incident. He was taken to a hospital for what the authorities said was a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He remains hospitalized but is no longer in critical condition.

The Tulsa Police Department indicated that other than their race – both being white — there was no connection between the two victims nor with them and the suspect.

District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler indicated that Hatchock and McDaniel were targeted because they were white.

“The information suggests that race played a role in it, and I feel like that is something we can prove, and it is something that a judge or jury obviously needs to listen to. So we will present that information along with everything else,” said Kunzweiler.

    Hopefully, the New York DA, Alvin. won’t be able to get him extradited, to pin a medal on him. Snarc, snarc.

    In the 2019 FBI crime statistics, there were more than twice the murders of whites by blacks than there were of blacks by whites. That doesn’t make the news. Blacks are only about 1/8 of the population; so they’re even more over-represented in murders. And that doesn’t even account for the far larger number of blacks murdered by blacks.

    I don’t think for a minute that someone’s genes or ancestry alone make them violent. But a largely dysfunctional subculture, possibly combined with higher levels of lead exposure, probably explains a lot.

    Everyone has to be accountable, and that message needs to be driven hard. First that means getting rid of prosecutors that won’t prosecute to the fullest extent that the available evidence supports. Second, that means permanently removing the convicted violent offenders from society; if that means more jails built or more executions, so be it. And third, it means communicating to the young that if they don’t want to be dead or locked up, they’ll need to learn to do something legal to earn a living. But that also requires getting the parent’s attention.

    Mr Hamilton, nice piece, great use of facts, but ….. sometimes some perspective is needed. First, economics plays a part in crime; ready access to guns means more gun deaths. So, we got’s lots of poor folk with guns doing crimes and, by your numbers, the raw chance the victim will be white is a demographic and economic certainty. However, your point that it happens stands, it’s valid.

    Great post IMO. That’s how it’s done.

    “Everyone has to be accountable, and that message needs to be driven hard.” I like that. IMO, any crime with a gun gets you 50 years, no chance of parole. Guns matter, let them find other weapons….like rubber hoses….

    Second, from Reuters: “Users on social media are sharing an image that features misleading data on black and white murder rates. Based on existing U.S. government data, all the figures are false.

    Reuters Fact Check. REUTERS/Axel Schmidt
    The image alleges, for example, that 81% of white murder victims are killed by Blacks. Data from the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice show on the contrary that more than 80% of white murder victims are killed by whites.

    Posts with the claim are visible here , here and here .

    The image lists the following categories: “whites killing blacks 2%”, “police killing whites 3%”, “whites killing whites 16%”, “blacks killing whites 81%”, “police killing blacks 1%” and “blacks killing blacks 97%”. No dates are specified, and the data is attributed to “stats from Wikipedia”.

    In the “Homicide” section of Wikipedia’s Race and Crime in the United States entry here , the site quotes a report by the U.S. Department of Justice visible here (see page 13). The report, which analyzes Homicide Trends in the U.S. between 1980-2008, found that within that period “most murders were intraracial”, with 84% of white victims killed by whites and 93% of Black victims killed by Black perpetrators.

    According to the FBI’s Expanded Homicide data from 2018, the most recent report of this kind Reuters was able to find ( here ), 80.7% of the murders of white people were committed by white offenders (2,677 of a total of 3,315) while 15.5% of the murders of white people were committed by Black offenders (514).

    The social media post also alleges white offenders committed 2% of the murders of Black victims. According to the FBI’s data, 8% of the reported murders of Black people were committed by white offenders (234 of a total of 2,925) and 88.9% by Black offenders (2,600).

    FBI data from 2017 also follows this trend: 80.2% of white victims were killed by white offenders, 8.9% of Black victims were killed by whites, 88.5% of Black victims were killed by Blacks, and 16.1% of whites were killed by Blacks ( here ).

    A Reuters Fact Check visible here shows that FBI data for 2013 also maintained this trend.”

    Not sure that exactly counters what you said, but it’s close????

    FYI: 75% of last 40 years of mass shooters are white, 25% black.

      Frank, not sure why you are debunking a meme that nobody else saw. The fact is that with most murders, the perp and the victim know each other. This was news because it is a mass murder based on racism. And Hamilton is largely correct (though I’m not sure about the lead exposure connection). The dysfunctional subculture (propagated by a Democrat political monarchy) has been the subject of many of Horist’s articles.

    Another laugh fest from the Gilbert’sin. There’s many types of logic: inductive reasoning, modal logic, deductive reasoning, and Joe’s clusterfuck illogic…..”not sure why you are debunking a meme that nobody else saw. ” to wit I had already said: “Not sure that exactly counters what you said, but it’s close????”

    First, he deduces: “a meme that nobody has saw.” Elon Musk saw it, wonder how many people saw his tweet. It’s millions have seen it Joe, plus it has been reproduced thousands of times in other forms and formats. The info even hit small time rags like PBP.

    Then he brilliantly ropes Horist in as he fumble-mouths: “The fact is that with most murders, the perp and the victim know each other. This was news because it is a mass murder based on racism. And Hamilton is largely correct (though I’m not sure about the lead exposure connection). The dysfunctional subculture (propagated by a Democrat political monarchy) has been the subject of many of Horist’s articles.”

    Think about it folks. Blacks killing whites all over the place. Most times, the victims know the perps. Horist added for Democratic flavor (although this guy might be Republican), subculture which Larry has indoctrinated us as being highly segregated, impoverished, and black. So, how do they know their white victim? Clusterfuck logic for sure.

    I think the engineer should use paper and pencil to chart these things out before he speaks… This is an engineering WAD for sure (works as designed).

    You want closer Joe, since you are too lazy to look for yourself.

    And while the trend continues upwards, the trend for white killing blacks is moving upwards at twice the rate: *https://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-09-29/race-and-homicide-in-america-by-the-numbers*

    BOTTOM LINE: More blacks kill whites than whites kill blacks. Blacks though are much more libel to be killed. It’s not the guns fault. Guns are used in most killings and are in the top ten causes of death. As a tool, guns kill more than cars. Therefore, if we had seat belts for guns, there would be less death by the tool. Since most victims know their killer, whites should avoid blacks, something that Larry says the Democrats have been trying to help with forever. To lower murder in total, the races should not know each other. I just graduated from the Gilbertson Academy of Pussy Logic where the saying is “grab em if you got em.”
