Teen Admits Shooting to Death Cabbie in Pennsylvania Because Driver Wouldn’t Follow Directions

Deborah Hastings, NY Daily News, May 24, 2014

A 16-year-old has been arrested for shooting a cabbie twice in the back of the head when the driver didn’t follow directions, Pennsylvania authorities said.

Aazis Richardson admitted as much to a horde of reporters as officers in Scranton led him down a hallway at police department headquarters. “That’s what I do to people that don’t listen,” the handcuffed suspect said, according to The Times-Tribune.

The teen was charged with murder and robbery on Friday and is being held at the Lackawanna County Prison without bail.


Richardson was picked up by the driver at about 3 a.m. Friday, police said. When the driver didn’t follow his directions, the teen fired two shots to the back of Darbenzio’s head.


Richardson also admitted he was a member of the Boyton Boys gang in Newark, N.J., and is a suspect in a triple homicide there, police said. Authorities are investigating that claim.

    Isn’t that what every civilized person does?

      Not to blame the victim, but he actually picked that thing up at 3:00 in the morning.

      Not a good move.

        Even blacks know not to pick up moolies after dark.

      Isn’t this child precious? Look at his flowing black snake-like hair things. How comforting. How couth and reassuringly familiar to me.

      Something we Whites done must be the cause of this tragic young urban aspiring rapper to strike out so tragically violently at the violence represented by the insensitive white cabby, no doubt…

      Sorry, I’m just trying to channel what a diversity seminar professional would make of this, using a teachable moment sort of thing.

      Mental gymnastics, you know?

        “insensitive white cabby”

        Darbenzio–White? Not sure here.

          There are pictures of him on the web. MailOnline has a picture of him. Average white guy.

      • Snakes for hair, huh? Uglier than 20 miles of bad road? Kills innocent men? No remorse about it? Sounds like a medusa to me. Where the heck is Perseus now that we need him?

    This is what you get when you combine a low IQ with high testosterone and low impulse control.

    • Tom_in_Miami

      The problem is all that and more, especially society’s acceptance of this kind of behavior as simply the status quo when “teens” are the instigators. If justice were severe, swift, and more frequent, the participants shunned, we would see less of this barbaric behavior. Rap on Boyz about yo hee-roes!

  • Dave4088

    This case proves once again that blacks should be in quarantine as they are a menace to society and a danger to everyone they come in contact with. I wonder how many white girlfriends Aazis has?

    • MrMagog

      No, the cabbie was white! The Scranton and Wilkes Barre area ,until recently , was one of the whitest areas in this country!

      • Dave4088

        I stand corrected and this crime is an even bigger outrage.

        • MrMagog

          He just wanted to kill a white person, that is all.

          • Ahnenerbe ᛟ

            I’m sure Eric holder has the hate crime charges all drawn up.

          • John R

            No, you don’t understand. He was boiling over with rage from all the unjust hate and racism he encountered from evil white people all his life. Finally, when the white cabbie didn’t listen to him, he felt disrespected; it was the white man putting him down again and making him feel like a slave. So, of course, all the anger boiled over and he had to shoot. There, have I got the liberal B.S. act down fairly well?

          • MrMagog

            Are they still making that record?

      • Who Me?

        Forget girlfriends, worry about how many little “mini-me’s” he left behind, he’s 16, could be three or four at least if not more…God help us.

  • Jesse James

    We need a real death penalty that is enforced within a year of sentencing. How can anyone expect ignorant and near retarded savages to have a respect for the law when it is enforced so hesitantly and erratically? Our civilization is falling apart because we as a people no longer have any faith in ourselves, our customs, our culture or our law. I fear the termites have damaged so much of the framework of our country that it may not be salvageable. The phoenix always burns to ashes before it is reborn.

    • Farnsworth

      even if there was a death penalty, they won’t give it to a 16 yr old.

      • Jesse James

        Black gangs on the streets don’t give a thought to killing 16 year old street soldiers and neither should the law. You lose the shield of childhood when you take up rape and murder.

    • Dave4088

      It’s not and our criminal justice system (so called) does not intimidate blacks and other non-whites or deter them from committing violent crime. Blacks have brought the country to a state of anarchy or rather anarcho-tyranny as described by Sam Francis.

    • MrMagog

      we need vigilante justice

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The US will continue on its course to disaster, unless someone is finally willing to stand up to the tyrants in Washington, put the negroes in their place and stop the massive third world invasion. Now, this won’t happen democratically. The only solution to this problem is a military one. And I know many people who are sick and tired of the multikulti garbage the tyrants daily ram down our throats.

    • Alucard_the_last

      I think the condemned should be killed in the same manner that they killed. I would create a gulag in northern Alaska where career criminal would sent and forced to work. Food and heat would have to be earned. If anyone of them would refuse to work, then they should be forced to stand in one spot all day and a few dozen lashes.

      • Andy

        If any one of them refused to work… no food or shelter.

  • It seems more than a little likely that the driver couldn’t UNDERSTAND Richardson’s directions, given the incomprehensible mix of baby talk and profanity black “yoofs” utter when they pretend to say something.

    • MrMagog

      I could tell you stories that you would not believe. I have come to the conclusion that many of these …….people……are not capable of a continuous train of thought. I have had dealings with them where they repeatedly change their mind, idea about what they want etc, and get upset when one gives them exactly what they “axed ” for. The whole issue about their mental functioning only being able to handle the present and not the past and not the future is quite extreme is some cases. It is more than likely that the cab driver did EXACTLY what he was told to do, but the ….being… in the back seat realized the cab could have gone a different way but the being FORGOT what he had told the cab driver to do, as it was already in the past.

      • kikz2

        God forbid you must deal with them, especially the females, in a retail situation…….. or anything to do with cash or credit sales……. rarely do you run across any that exhibit brains or manners.

    • TruthBeTold

      Ya know, something like that happened to me last week.

      I was going to meet a friend for lunch and some black guy asked me something 3 times and I didn’t understand a word he said.

      I’ve had that happen before and it scary position to be in. When you say, ‘Excuse me’, they get angry.

      • I had it happened to me on more than one occasion. I no longer even try to ask them what they are mumbling. I just politely ignore them and walk away. I do the same when blacks ask me for money on the streets – I just keep walking and don’t say anything. If I feel charitable that day, I might smile and say “Thanks for the offer” and just keep walking briskly.

        • John R

          Good move. Don’t stop your foreword movement. They like to distract you and set you up for the sucker punch (aka, “knockout game”).

          • Romulus

            I don’t! I refuse to back down to negroes. I know how to defend myself.
            So far, I haven’t had any takers going on now 18 years.

          • The perps like to call that leadup to a beat-down an “interview”.

      • Romulus

        I had a negroes give me a dirty look when I refused to give him a dollar after purchasing some coffee from a street vendor.
        So, I told him I work for my @$&#!/&$! Money.

        • I told one of those in downtown C.S. I’d been unemployed for the last 7 years; I was telling the truth. He actually smiled and drew out “damn” to about three syllables.

      • tlk244182

        Yes! I’ve had the same experience many times, though I grew up in NYC and consider myself to have a pretty good ear. If someone asks me to repeat something, I make sure I speak slowly and enunciate all the syllables clearly. But Blacks almost never do that. They just repeat the same gibberish over and over until I’m too embarrassed to ask them to repeat it again. Then, if they get angry, I have to decide what I’m going to do. I don’t like being obsequious, but I don’t want to risk legal hassles or serious injury.

        • TruthBeTold

          I do the same thing. I politely and clearly tell them I didn’t ‘hear’ them (understand their gibberish) and they repeat the statement exactly like they did the first time; totally incomprehensible.

          Acknowledge them and tick them off or ignore them and tick them off. It’s a tough call because you don’t know how they’ll react to either situation.

      • Nonhumans

        When I’m not on the clock, or in situations where I am mandated to acknowledge them, I simply don’t. Their not worth my time or attention (and certainly not the bullet that they might force me to waste).

        • TruthBeTold

          I do the same thing. When I’m at work and I have to deal with blacks I’m polite and say as little as possible.

          But on the street, since you don’t know these people, you don’t know how they’re going to react.

          My first impulse is to ignore them but what if ignoring them sets them off? I can walk away and then this guy clobbers me from behind for ‘dissin’ him.

          It’s a tough call.

  • JSS

    And blacks wonder why cab drivers avoid them.

    • bilderbuster

      They ALL know why but they blame it on “racists” anyways.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    I live in a big city where I often take cabs. If the cabbie is chatty I’ll often ask him if he has been assaulted or had a gun pulled on him. Many of the cabbies have. Then I’ll ask the cab driver what his attacker looked like. In every instance, every single one, the cab driver admitted his attacker was black.

    And then blacks and white Liberals endlessly complain about cab drivers being hesitant to pick up black passengers. I wonder why.

  • MrMagog

    What was that that the …ahem…. REVERAND (cough, cough) MLK Jr said …. “I have a dream that someday….little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.” all for the purpose of “OVERCOMING” some oppressive white power….. Hmmm. seems to me that the white guy, was working and having his money taken by the government and given to negroes to raise creatures like this thing ( that didn’t work) that shot him. So… who is being oppressed and who needs to OVERCOME the oppression?

    • bilderbuster

      If it wasn’t for Mel Gibson Glover couldn’t afford a cab.

  • John R

    Gee. And I wonder why those evil racist cabbies are not wanting to pick up blacks? Yeah, isn’t it a shame that these African American youths, who are really all good kids, are being profiled just because of the color of their skin? All they want to do is go to the drug store and buy their skittles and ice tea. (Wonder if our president is going to comment on THIS case? Yeah, silly question.)

      The moral of this story is non American coloureds are extremely suspicious of Blacks in the lower 48. I’m from Canada and the Blacks don’t like the Americans do, I don’t how to say but it’s like they’re for lack of a better word “housebroken”.

  • PvtCharlieSlate

    This article here has left out information that was presented on some other sites:

    He had a female friend call the cab for him. This was probably because the dispatcher wouldn’t have sent a cab at that time to the given address for a black male.

    The route that the driver was taking was the best route for going from point A to point B. The police speculate that he wanted to take a “short cut” that was deliberately through a less-populated area because his original intention was to rob the driver.

    Also, as MrMagog noted, he stole $500 from the driver.

    Bottom line is that the Scheisshaupt’s intention was to rob the cabbie. When the driver innocently didn’t co-operate by not driving to an out-of-the-way area
    the usual attributes took over.

    A standard OFE trick is to have a lone black woman get picked up and when the driver drops her at her destination 3 male OFEs rob the driver. Doesn’t work very well in Los Angeles. Most of the drivers are White immigrants and very very tough. Many are siks and israeli vets as well as 6ft5 russians. They wont touch a black.
