Sherlock's
Last night, a group of people were standing outside Sherlock's, a bar and restaurant in North Dallas, when a man approached. He carried a pistol and, according to police, he demanded money from someone.

It was a moment many of us script in our heads when we read these types of stories: Do you give up your wallet or fight back? One of the people outside the bar -- police have released no details, except that it was man -- decided to fight back. He "attempted to strike the suspect," as two witnesses, a man and a woman, looked on.

But the suspect fired a single round, killing the man who took a swing.

Neither of the two witnesses were injured. The suspect fled the bar. Police so far have released no description of the suspect, saying only that he is a black man.

Sherlock's, at 9100 North Central, is the same bar where Josh Hamilton suffered his very public relapse last winter.

I miss California and the three strikes law.  These petty criminals are off the streets for good now, and the per capita crime there is less than HALF what it is here.  WTF?

I carry a CHL as well and I would have handed over my wallet and then unloaded my gun in the back of his head when he started to run off. Then I would have walked over taken my wallet back. Next, find his smart phone....they all have them now....take a pic of his shitty have blown away head and sent it to all his contact....you know notify his next of kin. POS

It turns out that the man who was killed was trying to defend his friend who had been threatened by the gunman.  Clarice Tinsdale last night said that there's speculation that this incident is part a broader crime spree.  So, the perp may well not be from that neighborhood after all.

That intersection of Park & 75 has problems.  Some of them are from the surrounding "vibrant and diverse" denizens of nearby apartments.  A large part, however, comes in on the DART rail from other "vibrant and diverse" parts of Dallas..  Northpark has also suffered from their depredations.

The picture is of Bakers, but you claim it's Sherlock's.  You need to revise the photo or the caption.

A violent black near Park and Greenville? NO WAY. But that area of Section 8 apartments is SO VIBRANT!

A violent black mugger? No way. NO WAY. I'm completely shocked. I refuse to believe it. Violent black muggers are so extremely rare. This can't be true. I'm so shocked.

 @scottindallas You're absolutely right. Our listing of Sherlock's has the wrong photo. I've fixed this; should show up shortly. Thanks for pointing it out.

 @totallyshocked1 Why are you so scared of 'black' people? Is it just  your nature to be a coward? I mean, you carry a concealed handgun and you seem to be very very afraid of dangerous black people.

Tell the truth, it's because you feel inadequate downstairs isn't it?

What you need to do, is take that attitude to some of the whiter towns in north Texas. Maybe Whitewright. I'm sure there are plenty of white rednecks ready to kick your butt for being such a wimp and a coward. Maybe then you can fear all races equally.

 You certainly ain't SO VIBRANT, unless you meant 'vibrating'...as in shaking and cowering in your boots whenever you encounter anyone whose skin isn't that peachy ass color you sport, sporty.

You should type 'shocked' just once more for effect. Or simply take off your white robe with the pointy white hood. Either way we can be assured you're a racist tool.

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz You mean that I made my REALISTIC point. Maybe you are so naive and uninformed that you didn't know the particulars of that area - there are lots of violent blacks in the shitty section 8 apartment zone there. If you don't believe me, you are welcome to move there from whatever white hipster enclave you live in. Take a nice solo stroll around that neighborhood after dark. If I'm so wrong and you are so right then you will have absolutely nothing to fear. What have you got to lose?

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz @AdultBabies Or perhaps a web site dedicated to finding those extremely rare Americans without African genes.

 @ilikefacts  

 

"five minute walk"? you walk really fast, must be due to you typically trying to get away from something/someone.

 

Apparently you don't spend any time at the intersection where sherlocks is located, which includes NorthPark Center, Shops at Park Lane, one of the highest volume Bed, Bath stores in the market, a very large and busy Whole Foods Market, and the not very inexpensive Heights apartments...

 

yeah, what one typically finds in a "crap zone" on any street in America....bwahahaha!

 

I agree, you are very amusing. keep up the good work!

scottindallas
scottindallas topcommenter

 @mavdog from 5 points, or Greenville and Park?  I would guess your figure is correct for 5 points, if you notice I never claimed that.  Though Shady Brook to Greenville is certainly part of that neighborhood. 

ilikefacts

@mavdog Wow just a little more than half a mile. Why, that's about a 5 minute walk! Yeah. You and I both know that the whole area is plagued with the amazing benefits of Divershitty and that crap zone covers a much bigger area than just half a mile. But keep on quibbling because it is very amusing.

scottindallas
scottindallas topcommenter

 @mavdog It's pretty close, less than a 1/4 mile from the Greenville Park intersection, the DART rail, and the de facto day labor site where the Sam's is/was.

totallyshocked1 (or is that "celebratedivershitty" or the many more names...a few bannings, eh?) needs a lesson in Dallas geography.

 

the Caruth Plaza Shopping Center, where the Sherlock's is located, isn't by the Five Points intersection. Five Points is close to a mile east.

 

Caruth Plaza is closer to the neighborhoods of Lane Park, Glen Lakes and the Heights apartments. those are not where section 8 housing exists.

 

but then facts never get in the way of a racist and their rant, do they?

@clevertrousers A homeless African illegal immigrant beat another homeless guy to death "with a tree" in that area just about a week ago.

 @AdultBabies  @CraigT42  @totallyshocked1 It's more true than the lie that this is a land of opportunity where success is just a bit of hard work away.  Wealth is more generational than thought, and the US is less economically mobile than all Euro countries except England and Italy.

 @scottindallas  @totallyshocked1 I lived in the heart of the 5 points area for 1 year.  I walked from the rail station At Park road to my apartment every night after work at 11:30 pm.

In that time I was mugged once, had a guy try to knock me down and take my backpack once, and had 2 weapons brandished in my face for no other purpose than to play scare the cracker.

It is an ugly area full of poverty crime and despair.  But my mugger was as white as me.  The crime and ugliness didn't come from race as much as poverty and hopelessness.

totallyshocked1

@scottindallas Like the homeless African illegal immigrant who beat a guy to death with a tree just about a week ago?

scottindallas
scottindallas topcommenter

 @totallyshocked1  @scottindallas yeah, the area hasn't changed much in that time, it's actually probably improved.  The DISD construction improved conditions there some, the influx of more immigrants has also improved the area.

@scottindallas How many times? Exactly when "in the last few years". Does that mean the last time you went walking there at night was over 3 years ago?

totallyshocked1
totallyshocked1

@scottindallas "Many moons ago" huh. Just like I thought. That area wasn't nearly as shitty "many moons ago". I had several friends who lived in different complexes there and hung around there a lot in the late 80s to mid 90s. It wasn't nearly as bad then. In an amazing coincidence everyone that I knew who lives there moved away when it started to get too shitty - whoops I mean when it got too "vibrant and diverse". Go walk around there after dark these days, Dhimmi.

scottindallas
scottindallas topcommenter

 @totallyshocked1  @scottindallas several,  I lived there many moons ago, and have had people who I worked with there as well, much more recently.  I have other friends who live in condo/townhouses there as well. 

 

If you're looking for trouble there, you certainly can find it.  But, frankly, it's safer to walk down troubled streets in the Arab world than most places in this country. 

totallyshocked1
totallyshocked1

@scottindallas How many times have you walked around there at 'various hours'? Which 'various hours' exactly? How many of those 'various hours' were after dark?

scottindallas
scottindallas topcommenter

 @totallyshocked1 awww, it's not that dangerous.  I've walked around there at various hours.  I'm not saying the area isn't dealing with blight, but it's not as bad as you paint it.

 @totallyshocked1 A racist, carrying a gun, wandering around downtown after dark, looking for trouble.  YOU'RE the one who's dangerous, it seems.

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz I take solo strolls after dark downtown all the time, armed, of course. I'd never walk around the 5 Points area after dark, armed or not.

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz So this means you won't be going for a nice solo after-dark stroll around that area? Wow I'm shocked again.

@totallyshocked1 So white people are part Neanderthal? Your point?

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz semantic BS. By your logic all living things are protozoans.

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz Go complain about your semantic bullshit to the scientists who wrote those peer-reviewed articles.

 @totallyshocked1  Neanderthals are related to australopithecus and Homo habilis, both species originating in Africa.  No human species is "non-African".

Myrna.Minkoff-Katz
Myrna.Minkoff-Katz topcommenter

 @primi_timpano  Good point.  Unless one does not believe in evolution, it's now pretty much agreed upon by anthropologists that Homo sapiens originated in Africa, with many migrating to other continents, and evolved in a way that would ensure their survival in the environment they migrated to.

@primi_timpano All Non-Africans Part Neanderthal, Genetics Confirm Analysis by Jennifer Viegas Mon Jul 18, 2011 10:25 AM ET If your heritage is non-African, you are part Neanderthal, according to a new study in the July issue of Molecular Biology and Evolution. Discovery News has been reporting on human/Neanderthal interbreeding for some time now, so this latest research confirms earlier findings. Damian Labuda of the University of Montreal's Department of Pediatrics and the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center conducted the study with his colleagues. They determined some of the human X chromosome originates from Neanderthals, but only in people of non-African heritage. "This confirms recent findings suggesting that the two populations interbred," Labuda was quoted as saying in a press release. His team believes most, if not all, of the interbreeding took place in the Middle East, while modern humans were migrating out of Africa and spreading to other regions. The ancestors of Neanderthals left Africa about 400,000 to 800,000 years ago. They evolved over the millennia mostly in what are now France, Spain, Germany and Russia. They went extinct, or were simply absorbed into the modern human population, about 30,000 years ago. Neanderthals possessed the gene for language and had sophisticated music, art and tool craftsmanship skills, so they must have not been all that unattractive to modern humans at the time. "In addition, because our methods were totally independent of Neanderthal material, we can also conclude that previous results were not influenced by contaminating artifacts," Labuda said. This work goes back to nearly a decade ago, when Labuda and his colleagues identified a piece of DNA, called a haplotype, in the human X chromosome that seemed different. They questioned its origins. Fast forward to 2010, when the Neanderthal genome was sequenced. The researchers could then compare the haplotype to the Neanderthal genome as well as to the DNA of existing humans. The scientists found that the sequence was present in people across all continents, except for sub-Saharan Africa, and including Australia. "There is little doubt that this haplotype is present because of mating with our ancestors and Neanderthals," said Nick Patterson of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University. Patterson did not participate in the latest research. He added, "This is a very nice result, and further analysis may help determine more details." David Reich, a Harvard Medical School geneticist, added, "Dr. Labuda and his colleagues were the first to identify a genetic variation in non-Africans that was likely to have come from an archaic population. This was done entirely without the Neanderthal genome sequence, but in light of the Neanderthal sequence, it is now clear that they were absolutely right!" The modern human/Neanderthal combo likely benefitted our species, enabling it to survive in harsh, cold regions that Neanderthals previously had adapted to. --------- http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/05/100506141549.htm Neanderthal Genome Yields Insights Into Human Evolution and Evidence of Interbreeding With Modern Humans ScienceDaily (May 6, 2010) After extracting ancient DNA from the 40,000-year-old bones of Neanderthals, scientists have obtained a draft sequence of the Neanderthal genome, yielding important new insights into the evolution of modern humans. Among the findings, published in the May 7 issue of Science, is evidence that shortly after early modern humans migrated out of Africa, some of them interbred with Neanderthals, leaving bits of Neanderthal DNA sequences scattered through the genomes of present-day non-Africans. ... The researchers identified a catalog of genetic features unique to modern humans by comparing the Neanderthal, human, and chimpanzee genomes. Genes involved in cognitive development, skull structure, energy metabolism, and skin morphology and physiology are among those highlighted in the study as likely to have undergone important changes in recent human evolution. ---- Read that last paragraph closely, naive faith-based white-guilt libtard. ttp://tinyurl.com/3jjll35 http://news.discovery.com/human/genetics-neanderthal-110718.html
