DAILYKENN.com -- A black male was found dead after he fatally shot a white convenience store clerk.
The clerk offered no resistance during the holdup.
The robbery and murder occurred in Lincoln, Nebraska in July, 2016. The suspect was found dead in Mississippi.
The crime underscores the futility of civil rights laws to deal with economic disparities: Even given equal rights, a segment of the population will regress to the norm.
It also emphasizes the folly of the white privilege myth: A white man was working a menial job to support himself. A black male chose not to work, but to steal for cash.
It also points to the coarse reality that the African model of children being raised by a village simply doesn't work. Village-raised children have no guidance or sense of personal responsibility and accountability. Village raised children not only are denied access to the instruction and guidance of a productive father, but also are denied the example of a society in which effective male role models are absent.
51-year-old Bob Hanna was fatally shot while working as a clerk at a Lincoln Kwik Stop. The suspect was identified as Rodzela J. Jones, 20.
On July 19, police said, Jones was found slain in Jonestown, Mississippi, a town of about 1,300 people roughly 60 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee.
Phone records and interviews with relatives place Jones in Lincoln at the time of the shooting, the chief said. In addition, family members and law enforcement officials identified Jones as the man in the store’s video surveillance footage.
Police said they consider Hanna’s slaying cleared. “Evidence obtained supports the belief that Jones was responsible for the homicide,” Bliemeister said. “Why Rodzela Jones targeted that convenience store and what led him to fire the handgun remain unknown.”
Bohlmeyer said her family is still trying to make sense of Hanna’s death.
“The big one is just ‘Why? Why did he pull the trigger?’ ... Bob was cooperating,” she said. “It’s extremely difficult. It’s hard to lose someone that you love. But in this way, it makes it even harder.”
Jones had been in trouble with the law in the days before and after the slaying of Hanna.
Authorities in Coahoma County, Mississippi (where Jonestown is located), were looking for Jones at the time of Hanna’s death, court records indicate.
The documents state that Jones had run away from a Coahoma County deputy in Jonestown while wearing handcuffs on July 4.
