    From the article-
    The victim, 24-year-old Jessica Doty Whitaker, leaves behind a 3-year-old son.

    An Indiana woman was fatally shot earlier this month following an alleged argument between her family and a group of Black Lives Matter supporters, her family says.


    The woman, 24-year-old Jessica Doty Whitaker, was walking along Indianapolis Canal Walk with her fiancé, Jose Ramirez, and two other people around 3 a.m. on July 5 when someone in their group used a racial slur, Fox 59 reported.

    A group of nearby strangers overheard the comment and confronted Whitaker’s group, according to the station.

    Ramirez alleged that the group shouted “Black Lives Matter,” to which either Whitaker or someone else in their group reportedly responded with, “All Lives Matter.”

    If there is no law and order on the streets you can expect this to be just the beginning, I hate to say that but the writing is on the wall.

    From the OP article:
    so really what you have here is: someone shot this woman, they don't know who and they don't know why and now it's being used to attack Black Lives Matter? :scratch:

    This has been on the local news. It was all about BLM and what was said in reply.

    ...except that's what the reality is: they were out at 3 am walking around, they got in an argument with another group walking around at 3 am, both groups pulled guns on each other, they left and she got shot. Those are pretty much the only facts. What's not a fact is that she was killed for saying "All lives matter!" that's the narrative being used to push an agenda. :wave:

    That could go either way. And knowing the area, lots of people walk in that area at all hours. It’s not unusual at all.

    What it sounds a lot like is two drunken groups get in an argument over a racial slur, they pull guns on each other, they wander off, someone gets shot later on. Than anti-BLM people try and use her death to push their agenda. :sorry:

    Actually we don't know any facts. We just know what was reported and lately I don't put much stock in the news. How do we know that by not reporting that it was a BLM member is the agenda? Maybe the police just don't want to stick their neck out and be called racist.

    this part is true.
    ...I haven't seen a single report yet that didn't try and blame this on some sort of Black Lives Matter thing. :wave:

    Maybe the police are waiting to see what happened before they say something? :scratch:
    tulc(not a bad idea all around)

    The media is all about agenda instead of news.
    Fact check: Trump 2020 campaign shirt criticized for design

    The next news story will probably say " Trump has hair and you know who else had hair? Hitler."

    this thread isn't about President Trump, maybe we should just stick to what's in the OP instead. :wave:

    I will take "funny" as a compliment. I would much rather make people laugh even if it's at me instead of with me as opposed to how people tend to act nowadays. The world needs more laughter.

    What else happens in Indiana around 3:00 a.m.? Last call.

    Guns. Groups spewing stuff at each other. Maybe alcohol. What could possibly go wrong?

    Mama always said, "Nothing good ever happens after midnight."

    I haven't read if there has been an update on this but the articles claiming the BLM is at fault seem to showing some prejudice on the matter. Assuming that the people were BLM supporters just because they used the term, after being called a racial slur, doesn't make those the ones who actually shot the girl.

    No one actually saw who fired the shot.

    Yep! My mama said something to that effect too. She said if it can't be done by midnight, best leave it alone until the next day.
