Florida cop-killers: a pattern emerges (Florida, part 5)
Jul 4th, 2011 by Unamused
Happy Independence Day.
Besides the three white cops shot to death by blacks in St. Petersburg in early 2011, at least four other Florida police officers have been shot and killed since June 2010.
Just days before the violent, child-abusing black sex offender Hydra Lacy Jr. killed Sergeant Tom Baitinger and Officer Jeffrey Yaslowitz, two Miami-Dade detectives, Roger Castillo (41, 23-year veteran, married father of three) and Amanda Haworth (44, 21-year veteran, single mother of one) were killed in a shootout with violent, drug-dealing black fugitive Johnny Simms (Miami Herald, January 20, January 20; NBC Miami, January 21; Miami New Times, January 21).
Simms had a long criminal history, according to the Miami Herald (January 20):
In October 2005 and December 2005, Simms was arrested for separate armed robberies, one with a pistol and the second with a rifle. Prosecutors did not file charges in either case.
In 2007, Simms… went to state prison for a different 2005 armed robbery and auto theft. He was released in February 2009 on probation.
Simms violated his probation when he was again arrested in June 2010, this time for robbery with a deadly weapon and selling cocaine. He pleaded guilty and Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Julio Jimenez sentenced him to one year in prison plus five years’ probation.
But Simms served only one month because he had earned credit for time served earlier in a Miami-Dade jail. He was released in September 2010 on five years of court-mandated “administrative probation,” a low-level form of supervision that does not require regular check-ins with authorities.
Simms hadn’t been out a month before he was again implicated in a violent act.
According to Miami homicide detectives, Simms shot and killed Cornelious Larry, 27, on Oct. 16 in the parking lot of an Overtown apartment complex, 1535 NW First Pl.
Simms had been on the lam since.
The police finally tracked him down in Liberty City.
Castillo’s and Haworth’s squad, wearing body armor labeled “Police,” were dispatched to a duplex at 6112 NW Sixth Ct., in a gritty section of Liberty City just west of Interstate 95.
… [T]he detectives knocked on the door, and Simms’ mother let them inside.
Just inside the living room, investigators believe, Simms jumped out of another room, firing his gun.
Haworth was shot in the head inside the home. Beecher was not hit. Castillo was shot dead just outside, in the walkway.
Plasencia, who had been behind the duplex, ran back around and — under fire — shot Simms dead in front of the door.
Well, that’s what we get for giving the blacks Liberty.
Black man accused of writing a bad check and murdering five people
One year ago, on June 29, Tampa Police Officers David Curtis (31, three years on the job, married father of four) and Jeffrey Kocab (31, one year on the job, survived by his pregnant wife) were shot and killed by Dontae Morris during a traffic stop (St. Petersburg Times, June 11).
According to the St. Petersburg Times, Morris, now in custody, is accused of murdering a total of five people.
Morris ambushed Derek Anderson at his doorstep when he returned home from doing his laundry on May 18, 2010, apparently because Anderson had argued with him on a basketball court earlier in the day. The night Morris killed the police officers, he believed he was wanted for Anderson’s murder.
Morris killed Rodney “Scarface” Jones outside the Cotton Club bar in West Tampa on May 31, 2010, partly for money, partly for revenge. Jones had flashed thick wads of cash during an oldies karaoke show that night. But detectives said Jones also had once held Morris at gunpoint during a drug ripoff, leaving him stranded on a roadside.
Morris killed drug dealer Harold Wright on June 8, 2010, because Wright was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Wright delivered drugs to Morris for another dealer who was the intended target. Morris decided to kill Wright anyway to “send a message” to the dealer who hadn’t shown up.
According to detectives,
Morris killed Tampa police Officers Jeffrey Kocab and David Curtis during a traffic stop on June 29, 2010, because he thought they were about to arrest him for murder. He was wrong. They wanted to arrest him on a bad-check warrant.
No [murder] warrant existed. But detectives said Morris told Price he “had to shoot the officers to get away.” According to Price, when Curtis and Kocab asked Morris to step from the car, he pulled a gun from under the seat and fired point-blank at both officers.
He told Price, “I shot those crackers.”
“I shot those crackers,” said the nigger.
That was a test. How many of you are more upset about the N-word than you are about the two dead “crackers” and the murderer’s clear racial bias? How do you think black people would answer the same question?
The score so far
- June 2010: black thug shoots and kills two white cops in Tampa
- January 2011: black thug shoots and kills white female cop and fairly white-looking Hispanic cop in Miami
- January 2011: black thug shoots and kills two white cops in St. Petersburg
- February 2011: black thug shoots and kills white cop in St. Petersburg
Remember: pattern recognition is racist.
