DAILYKENN.com --Erin Langhofer is dead. The 25-year-old white woman was allegedly gunned down by an 18-year-old black male while enjoying an outing with friends at a community event.
According to kansascity.com:
The gunfire erupted about 10 p.m. near 18th and Main streets as thousands of people attending the First Friday event milled around. Langhofer was near the food trucks, enjoying the night with her boyfriend and other friends, when she was “struck down,” her family said in a statement.Arrested is Deon’te Copkney. The suspect was apparently involved in a dispute with others.
• The shooting may be an example of low impulse control, low intelligence, and high psychopathic tendencies that are common, though not universal, within America's black population. See chart below.
• Jim Crow laws are erroneously attributed to white racism. In reality, Jim Crow laws were a logical response to the prevalence of black ratchet behavior.

Gathered Saturday morning outside Langhofer’s family home in Overland Park, Langhofer’s close friends and neighbors recalled her radiant smile and wheezy laugh, which they said often caused others to cackle. One described her as “vivacious.”
Langhofer graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in social work in 2016, her friends said. The only time she wasn’t smiling was when KU lost a game, they joked.
“She was a gift,” said Scott Kormann, a neighbor who knew Langhofer since she was born. “She wanted you to be a better person.”
Kormann’s daughter, 26-year-old Liz Kormann, was about to ask Langhofer to be her maid of honor at her upcoming wedding, she said. The two grew up together; Liz Kormann doesn’t know a life without Langhofer. She was always there for Kormann after her mother died, she said.
“The world lost a good one,” said Liz Kormann’s fiancé, Danny Dolan, 26. “We’re lucky to have had her as long as we did.”
Her friends Hope Farnsworth and Kate Westberg, who knew Langhofer since kindergarten, said Langhofer was the person that held their friend groups together. She made strangers feel like life-long friends, they said.
Friends described Langhofer’s death as a senseless tragedy. News of the shooting shocked her loved ones, one of whom said they were numb and didn’t even realize it.
“I don’t understand how something so bad could happen to someone so beautiful,” Westberg said.
In a statement read by family friend Michael Eagan during the news conference, Langhofer’s parents said they were devastated by the death of their daughter and the impact it will have on others, including the “life of the young man who pulled the trigger.”
