Hear Much About the Latest Mass Shooting?

Update: Seems Antz and I must have posted at almost the same time, so this is a duplicate of the story posted a bit further down the page.

I didn’t think so. For some strange reason, this story about “gun violence” isn’t the top story of the day, with every news anchor talking about it. I only stumbled across a short blurb and had to search for more information.

Phillip Adams shot and killed Dr. Robert Lesslie, Barbara Lesslie, and the couple’s two young grandchildren Adah 9 and Noah 5. He also shot and killed James Lewis, a man working at the Lesslie home. A sixth unidentified man was also shot and is in critical condition. Phillip Adams was eventually found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

It seems odd that this shooting has not received mainstream media coverage. Did I mention Phillip Adams race or profession? Adams is black and is a former NFL cornerback who played for the San Francisco 49’ers and Atlanta Falcons. The race of the unidentified victim is unknown, but the other five are white.

Another item of interest – A man who identified himself as Adams’ father, Alonzo Adams, told NBC affiliate WCNC of Charlotte that his son killed himself after he shot six people, killing five and injuring one. “I think the football messed him up,” he told the station. Ya think?

Former NFL player Phillip Adams died by apparent suicide in South Carolina after he shot and killed five people Wednesday, including a prominent doctor, his wife and their two grandchildren, the sheriff’s office said.

Adams, 32, was found dead from a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound in a nearby home on the same street as the victims after a standoff with authorities in York County, officials said Thursday. He played as a defensive back for multiple NFL teams, including the San Francisco 49ers and the Atlanta Falcons.

York County sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of gunfire about 4:45 p.m. Wednesday at a residence in the 4400 block of Marshall Road in Rock Hill, about 27 miles southwest of Charlotte, North Carolina, the sheriff’s office said. Inside the home, authorities found the bodies of Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, Barbara Lesslie, 69, and their grandchildren.

The York County Coroner’s Office identified the grandchildren as Adah Lesslie, 9, and Noah Lesslie, 5.

All “died as a result of gunshot wounds,” the sheriff’s office said Thursday in a tweet.

The fifth victim, James Lewis, was working at the home, according to the sheriff’s office. The coroner’s office said Lewis, 38, was from Gastonia, North Carolina, west of Charlotte.

An unidentified sixth victim was being treated for serious injuries, said Trent Faris, a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office.

Faris said that after an hourslong manhunt, officers found a suspect who “lives on the same road” as the victims and that a search warrant was served on the house.

Residents were urged to stay in their homes and lock their doors during the search. By Thursday morning, the York County Sheriff’s Office said, there was “no active threat to the community.”

“We have IDed the person we feel is responsible for the shooting on Marshall Rd,” the agency said in another tweet. “We found him in a nearby house.”

Investigators did not immediately determine a motive for the shooting.

A man who identified himself as Adams’ father, Alonzo Adams, told NBC affiliate WCNC of Charlotte that his son killed himself after he shot six people, killing five and injuring one.

“I think the football messed him up,” he told the station.

An NFL spokesperson, who would not confirm details about Adams’ death, expressed the league’s condolences.

    Baboon pro football player with a handgun doesn’t play to the Liberal narrative of the white supremacist with an AR-15.

    In order to see the hypocrisy, you have to play the change game. Change all the white people to black and the black people to white, and then figure out if the story would get the same attention.

    Stories about niggers killing white people are a no-no. This goes against the forced belief that niggers are decent people and not racist or evil in any way. Just like the myth of the single black mother working two jobs in order to support her children, making every effort that they get a good education, as they lovingly help them with homework and laughs and smiles all around. Yeah, I hear bigfoot still exists deep in the mountains of Alaska too. I am not saying this may not be a real thing, but I have yet to see it. And if it does, for every one of those stories, there are 999 where the single mother does the most basic of parenting, burping out baby after baby, not knowing caring about who the baby daddy is, and though not well educated herself, and bad at math, can tell you to the penny, the increase in welfare she can get every nine months. She teaches her children to hate the police, and that life if unfair due to racism, and the reason every bad thing happens to them, is not their fault, but the fault of white people, who work tirelessly to keep them down.

    The race of the actors doesn’t meet the goals of the agenda. I mean think about it, a white cop kills a thug who is a nigger (but I repeat myself), and its news 24/7 shoved down our throats about racism and evil white people. Nevermind that the dead thug was a habitual felon, doped up on everything, and a violent scumbag who was never going to be of any value to society. We have had this story shoved in our faces for how long now, and its not going away anytime soon.

    But two black niggerettes kill a decent non-black man, who really was working hard to provide for his family, doing everything right, and nary a peep about it. The video is horrifying, and if it was two white males doing this horrific act, you could be on a deserted island and the news would still make it to you.

    You know how I know that racism on the part of white people is not real? Because stories of rampant racism has to be continuously made up. Stories have to be twisted, facts have to be left out, and distortion applied everywhere to make them fit the agenda. And stories where blacks are scumbag thugs are buried, as in nothing to see here, move along…on no, look over there, did that white guy do something racist…news on the hour and every ten minutes until you start to believe racism is real.

    We all know full well that every time the left hears a story of murder, they start hoping beyond all hope that this time it will be a white trump supporter. And just like Bullwinkle pulling a rabbit out of his hat, they are constantly disappointed. So when the killer really is white, the story will make coverage 24/7 until we all know about it. But sadly, as in most violent murders, the killer is black, and the leftist media, just like a black child hoping they daddy will come home, are left hoping that maybe tomorrow, if only the wish it hard enough, it will happen.
