Police: Cook Gunned Down over Long Wait Times

CBS Los Angeles, July 3, 2012

Police released public surveillance images on Tuesday of two suspects in the shooting death of a cook and father of five who was gunned down at the Sherman Oaks restaurant where he worked.

KNX 1070′s Claudia Peschiutta reports Raul Lopez was working one of his two jobs when the robbery occurred.

Lopez, 38, was fatally shot in the chest shortly after 11 p.m. last Friday night at Hoagies & Wings on Ventura Boulevard as he tried to ward off a group of five black men who were causing a disturbance.

Police said one of the customers apparently became angry with Lopez about how long it was taking for the food to be prepared, and some racial slurs were reportedly used.

“It was a random dispute that went tragically wrong,” said LAPD Detective James Nuttle.

    Oh, it’s always “random”, isn’t it?  Just another isolated incident.  Nothing to see here folks, move along!

    “Racial slurs,” or, as they are commonly known among our Melanin-enriched brethren,  “Get Out Of Jail Free cards.”

    I worked once in a bi-polar bar.  By day it was a  business and working mans lunch stop ,but by night it was a bus station watering hole . The day head waitress, Cindy, had made some curtains for the windows.  Every day she`d hang them up and every night I`d take them down.  So she finally came crying asking why I was so mean.  And I told her, “I need the first window to see who they are, the second to count how many they are and the last to give myself a two-second look in the reflection to see if I still have it…”

    The police spokesman called the perps “gentlemen.”  Is there something about the story that I misunderstood?

    P.S., If the widow has been living here in the USA longer than a couple weeks, shame on her for not speaking English at the podium.  (And shame on us for allowing it.)

    • Did everyone forget that White people are buying guns and ammo like crazy? How about CoCC and AmRen getting record breaking traffic. More and more people are waking up everyday. Do you really expect White people to make threats and riot like blacks and hispanics? Those who can see are quietly preparing and waking up as many others as they can. We are calm, we are patient and we are precise, because we are White.

      Just look at the blog on the original article, everyone is complaining about blacks and mexicans, just like here!

    Yep………..there WILL be retaliation, no doubt about it.

  • I’m sure he was receiving generous benefits from our state to help support his five anchor babies. My guess is he was being paid under the table, while collecting benefits on behalf of his spawn.

  • When we are forced to go hungry. When it finally sinks in, its our children or their children. Luckily we have a total economic collapse coming in a few years. Boy is it going to get crazy when those EBT cards no longer work…

    The political correctness displayed is sickening. They will go to any lengths to protect diversity, including concocting alibis about “slow food preparation” times in order to avoid facing the reality that diversity is killing diversity because of their racism. If the suspects were White, would they be given such latitude?

    A sharks’ feeding frenzy has better table manners.

  • KenelmDigby

    Too damned lazy even to cook their own food.

    In multi-racial, free-wheeling, globalist, free-trade WSJ and ‘Economist’ run America, a Mexican’s life is, literally, not worth a chicken wing.
    That’s not the value I put on it, but the forces that rule America ie the open borders crowd and blacks, put on it.

    And the “racial slurs were used” angle is often there to complicate things, as if it had any relevance to what happened or, even if it did, excuses it – “A man was arrested today in connection with a multiple homicide in which he is alleged to have killed 300 people with a chainsaw. However, one of the victims is said to have used a racial slur during the attack……”

    ” “It was a random dispute that went tragically wrong,” said LAPD Detective James Nuttle.”

    The same old excuse proferred by white officialdom: “(some criminal act)……………gone wrong”.  In this case it was a senseless dispute by violent impatient thugs who did not get their chicken-wings fast enough……………….gone wrong.  In other cases (usually when a white person is beaten or murdered) it is referred to as a “robbery gone wrong”, “a car-jacking gone wrong”.  Why not just call it a “rape gone wrong”, or a “murder gone wrong”?

    Can we start referring to the black presence in America as “slavery gone wrong”?

    As soon as this story hit the wires, the open borders kooks were demanding that his wife and all of her spawn be allowed to stay here. Even they knew this invader was here illegally.

    Washington and Oregon are full of minority on white violence, as well as brain-dead liberals.

      Washington and Oregon are full of minority violence BECAUSE of brain-dead liberals.


    There have been over a hundred, probably several hundred racially motivated killings between blacks and Mexicans in LA over the last 15 years.  

  • A lot of us have been brainwashed since birth.  I don’t remember the “past” you speak of, and it’s been completely censored from our history textbooks. It takes a lot to wake up the average 18-34 year old White person nowadays.  Fortunately I am waking up, but it’s taking more and more drastic acts (like the one mentioned in the article) to shock people’s systems enough to realize that race is real and it matters.  I had to see and experience a lot before I was ready to learn the truth.

     Forget this ridiculous Pacific Northwest homeland. It isn’t going to happen. Oregon and Washington are dominated by the far left with absolutely zero racial awareness. Idaho and Wyoming are more Libertarian and tend to be liberal on social issues. Now, N. / S. Dakota might be a candidate for being part of a future ethno-state. They are conservative and have a large agricultural base. I have found farmers in general to be a least open to White Nationalism. Many of them are already racially aware. And geographically the Dakotas are situated correctly because if there is going to be any rise of an ethno-state it will be in the middle of the country.

  • I like “a carjacking that went horribly right, black ends up with new car, white woman for sex and money”  Or “a rape that went horribly right, ended up in marriage and nigglets” “a senseless murder” I know of some murders that would make a LOT of sense. HTF can murder committed during an ARMED ROBBERY be plea bargained down you negligent homicide! How the hell can trhe U.S. Military have posters that say ?Rape, Sexual Assault is UNLWFUL!!!” WTF is that about, a CAPITOL FELONY in almost all states is UNLAWFUL! all the military posters describing that are black male/white female illustrated. I know, I am over here with them.
