Man Shot at ‘Stop the Violence’ Event

Bill Kimber, The Daily Home, November 6, 2013

A Sylacauga man shot during a weekend Stop the Violence basketball tournament in Childersburg was recovering this week at a Birmingham hospital, Childersburg police said.

Police received a 911 call Saturday at 6:35 p.m. about a shooting at the Phyllis Wheatley Community Center, a former school in Childersburg where the basketball tournament was taking place.

One shot was fired, and Donterius Riggins, 19, of Sylacauga was hit in the neck, said Childersburg Police Department Sgt. Donald Elkins.

“There was an altercation between him and several other men,” Elkins said.


He said police have identified several persons of interest in the case, but no arrests have been made. {snip}

    Yeah…Whites with guns are the problem. Yep.

  • Extropico

    A “Stop the Violence” bakkaball game is as consonant as a “Stop the Violence” chess game is dissonant.

    • Oil Can Harry

      The event was successful. After all, they stopped Donterius from committing any future acts of violence!

  • James Bro

    My club is having a stop the violence bad mitten match this weekend, I wonder if we have enough security. We’ll be playing golf and tennis as well, you know with all these white people in one place something is bound to happen.

    • [Guest]

      We have the same problem at Scrabble and dominoes tournaments.

      Oh, the blood-letting the results from those heated matches!

      • bilderbuster

        An all Black Scrabble tournament would turn violent very quickly if they spell anything like they speak & I’m sure they do.

        • Since virtually none of them can spell anything at all, “words” like “sqzeent” and “thrunkle” would be common.

  • [Guest]

    >>> …Police have identified several persons of interest in the case….

    Demetrius, Diamonte, Dontevious, Dante, and Dardanius are suspects.

    • Strider73

      Don’t forget DeShawn, Deleterious, D’Wayne, D’Lucky, D’Licious, . . .

      • Brian

        Deleterious! Fantastic.

    • NM156

      But never a D’artagnan…

  • Is it just me, or do these “stop the violence” public events seem a nearly 100% reliable method of producing violence? It must be that bad junk food that has the imbeciles at the National Institute of Health so agitated. I better stock up on Cheetos and pork rinds before they get banned – for our own good. The routine shootings at these gatherings can’t possibly be due to the fact that they attract young black males.

    • MBlanc46

      It’s not just you.

    • . . . not to mention the lack of maff tutors . . .

      • Perhaps the maff tutors are all too busy playing “Dungeons & Dragons”. We’d best ban that as well.

    • Dave4088

      I agree. Star Trek conventions are notorious for bloodletting, so we shouldn’t be so quick to judge afro-merican “youths”.

    • ThomasER916

      Once there’s 20% blacks or Arabs you can guarantee violence. They can call it whatever they want but that doesn’t mean it’s true.

  • Tarczan

    Any experienced Amren follower knows that these “stop the violence” events are among the most dangerous places to be for anyone.

    • Puggg

      Detroit barber shops, too.

      • Oldcorporal

        Don’t forget the ones in Indianapolis and Louisville. There have been fatal shootings (of the barber who owned the shop) in both cities in recent years. Do I need to tell the race of the barber and his “clientele”?

        • The barbershop is the epicenter of intellectual life in the black community, i.e. where a half dozen middle aged men regurgitate political wisdom that’s third hand gossip that originated in Final Call.

          Except if the barbershop has a casino operation in the back, then you have a high likelihood of TBB breaking out.

    • bilderbuster

      I know.
      Lets have a large gathering of angry Black people with nothing but time on their hands.

      • We could supply booze and fried chicken, but nowhere near enough of it, just to get the latecomers angry at liquored-up early-birds. It could also be held near a Mexican neighborhood, just to guarantee a heavy dose of gang/racial friction.

        Isn’t the acme of diplomacy summed up as “Let’s you and him fight”?

  • Spartacus

    How about a “Stop the Groid” event ? It probably wouldn’t do much either, but at least it would identify the cause properly…

    • Some of these turn into precisely that sort of event. Two of the groids currently on Death Row here in Colorado shot some guy at an Independence Day celebration at a public park in Denver. They later blew away one of the witnesses and the witness’s girlfriend. The courts here really hate it when folks kill witnesses. That is thus two dead groids and two more who are going to get lethal injections, all over a July 4 party.

    • Sensitivity Training

      There’s no stopping them now.

  • ozamataz

    It always makes me smile when they kill each other at these stop the violence events. There should be one every night.

    • Strider73

      Unfortunately Donterius has not assumed room temperature. The perp most likely held the gun sideways, gangsta-style.

      • Unfortunately, some hospital got to eat the cost of the necessary medical treatment; we all know that a 19 year-old named Donterius doesn’t have any money.

        • Non Humans

          Nor would it pay the bill if it did.

      • Bill

        I think the gun makers oughta put out a ‘gangsta’ model of their ‘9’, with sights on the right side of the barrel.

        • Guest

          You mean like this?

  • Greg Thomas

    Someone named Donterius Riggins gets shot while participating in basketball therapy for wayward diversity. I didn’t see that coming.

  • MBlanc46

    I don’t think those people are capable of holding a “nonviolence” event without there being a shooting.

    • Katherine McChesney

      They’re incapable of achieving anything of note, except when it comes to the destruction of all that is good and holy. They’re even rewritten Biblical history to make themselves the central figures. They claim Jesus was Black and that they are the true Israelites. Basically, all Blacks do is try to cover up their insignificance with lie.

  • Sensitivity Training

    As a “harsh” Anglo Saxon, I’m deeply offended that the blacks continue using European surnames after their Roman ebonification of their first names.

    If I were Italian, I’d protest their cooptation of Roman sounding names. And if I were Arab, ditto for their dusky muslimification of names.
    We should force them to use genuine African names, you know, the ones that all rhyme with ooga booga booga.

    At least Obama is a real name! But we really should take back the Michelle from his full blooded wife.

    • bilderbuster

      Shaquille O’Neal is a good example.
      It was Jessie Jacksonized so it rhymes though.

      • Starting in 2007, I started to see the name “Shaquille” show up in crime blotters. It only took me a few moments to figure out what was going on: Shaquille O’Neal turned pro 15 years earlier, and as a result, many ghetto black women named their newborn sons “Shaquille.” 15 years later, they got old enough to be named publicly in crime blotters.

        Prediction: Circa 2023, we’ll start seeing the name “Barack” quite a bit in crime blotters.

        • bilderbuster

          Great minds think alike.
          I’m waiting on that one too.
          I’ll be keeping an eye peeled for Michelle & whatever da bratz names are while I’m at it.

    • MekongDelta69

      Are blacks now claiming they were Roman emperors?

      No, because they’re too busy claiming they were flying around the Pyramids (‘they built’), in spaceships ‘built by them.’

    • Oldcorporal

      Sorry to tell you this, but I’m afraid someone “jumped the fence” back in her family tree, too. There was a news item recently that she has some “White” ancestry. So, put her and Barack together, and they’d make one groid.

      • Pelagian

        “Jump the fence” with Michelle’s Great-Grand Mammy?? That must have been one cold dark, moonless Southern night. (-;


    I can’t help but laugh, these people are hopeless!

  • Whitetrashgang

    Since these stop the violence meetings always increase the violence in the black community why not have a increase the violence event?

    • Bill

      LOL. And you think reverse psychology would get through their heads?

    • Neuday

      I think the “increase the violence” event was the 2012 presidential elections. Seems to have worked.

    • DaveMed


  • Erasmus

    A shooting at a Stop-the-Violence basketballthon????? Quelle surprise!

    Wherever you have Africans, you have Africa.

  • Defiant White

    I’m sure Donterious was an “innocent youf” . . . just a by-stander . . . who’s “turning his life around.” His dream is to become a “collage gradshuate” and then an airline pilot.

    • With his neck injury, how will he now support his six kids? Truly a tragedy.

      • Whitetrashgang

        As usual you are going to support them. On a lighter note this could be the highlight of his wonderful life.

    • NoMosqueHere

      One of Jesse Jackson favorite rhymes about about black thugs: “Don’t send ’em to jail; send ’em to Yale.”

  • negrolocaust

    towson students of baltimore county are being stabbed and robbed by groups of blacks 4 incidents last week alone all by blacks all against white college students so much so the county just formed a task force. i want to know why this site is not reporting it . the one student was stabbed multiple times in the chest and still cannot communicate.

    • Oldcorporal

      What about the news media in Maryland? Are they reporting it? Or — more likely — covering it up the way they always do with black-on-White violence.

  • MekongDelta69

    There was a long discussion and debate on here (AmRen) a long time ago about black names.

    Some people were sick of all the D’Shawndelerious and ‘EBTLaQuanda’ names, stating (and I paraphrase), “Why can’t these idiotic people have normal names?”
    (And they had a point.)

    Other people (including myself, at the time), said (and again, I’m paraphrasing), “No. I love these lunatic, made-up, pseudo-Afro-Muslim-Ebonic names. This way, you’ll NEVER have to wonder what race the perp is when the MSM runs the usual, ‘Teens / youfs / youts‘ daily crime stories, and will NEVER mention the race of the perp (unless he’s white of course – in which case, his name and race are in 24 pt. font in the headline and mentioned 111 times in the story).”

    That’s the way I felt then and haven’t changed one bit.
    I want to be segregated from idiocy and lunacy as much as possible.

    • I like them because blacks giving themselves such gawdy names is the next best thing to them actually tattooing “I’m a ghetto thug moron” on their foreheads.

    • Oldcorporal

      I heard of a teenage girl from the ghetto whose given name, spelled phonetically, was “ShiTHEED.” Guess how it was actually spelled? Yep, you are right, fellow Amreners.

      • Right here in Colorado Springs. One my friends has a son who went to middle school with her in about 1997-1998, and I actually met her at Blackjack Pizza in 2005. This one is NOT an urban myth.

      • Katherine McChesney

        My schoolteacher Aunt in Las Vegas had a student by the name of LaShitta.

    • Alexandra1973

      Just like the thugs that like to wear the pants halfway down their legs.

      Let them wear them. Makes it easier for the cops to catch ’em!

    • Katherine McChesney

      A young White woman in my building used to hug and kiss the black women whenever they met. Now she’s employed and finding out first-hand how much blacks hate Whites. She’s experiencing some violent treatment at the hands of black women and she’s acknowledging it. Hopefully, she’ll become a race realist.

  • Oldcorporal

    Donterius Riggins; gee, wonder what color HE was?!

  • ograf

    This kind of reminds me of the stupid “race relations classes” we had to attend in the U.S. Army. I haven’t seen one class finish out on a positive note. If we weren’t fighting before the class, you could be sure we were after. That was in the early 70’s, and that is where I first started learning the evil ways of the rayciss yt’s.

  • Bardon Kaldian

    Sorry, but this is funny.

  • Bill

    Hmm Hmm Hmm. Nothin’ like ‘Basketball ‘N Bullets’. Good times.

  • GOD

    Word is Donterius just turned his life around one day prior to the incident. He even applied to Yale and wrote a 27-page essay on how the blacks built the Pyramids.

  • Dave4088

    Donterius is a new and quite original afro-merican name. I’m always amazed at the creativity blacks exhibit in naming their illegitimate offspring.

    • Pelagian

      don’t they have comment sections for almost all stories on that paper? Not for that one. LOL!

  • Alexandra1973

    Please. Not Sasha.

    It’s a Russian short form for Alexandra. My name.

  • SaggyGenes

    “Post-racial” doesn’t mean a change in black behavior. It means whites must stop talking about it.

  • MekongDelta69

    That’s hilarious – especially b/c it’s true!

  • ThatguyinTN


  • Bill

    LMAO! Now that’s funny.

  • Fr. John+

    Black man. Black Community. Shot.

    This isn’t news. This is normal behavior. It’s only news because the people buying the paper, have jobs, are literate, and aren’t Black. Which is also news.
