Police: Man Killed Middletown Teen at Dayton Mall in Self Defense

Jay Warren, WCPO (Miami), December 23, 2014

A 16-year-old Middletown High School football player wanted to buy the new Air Jordans on sale Saturday morning at the Dayton Mall.

But Jawaad Jabbar got there too late and the shoes were gone. So Jabbar tried to rob a pair from another shopper, police said, and he paid with his life.

“The juvenile wasn’t able to get in line in time or whatever to get some of these shoes,” Miami Twp. police Sgt. Jay Phares said.

So Jabbar went outside to the sidewalk and pulled a gun on a man who had just bought the shoes, Phares said.

Only, the man had a gun, too.

“The person who he tried to take the shoes from had a valid carry concealed weapon permit through Ohio, and when he was threatened with a firearm he drew his firearm and discharged it into the juvenile, who then died as a result of a single gunshot wound,” Phares said.


Two other teens who were with Jabbar ran from the scene, police said. The man who shot Jabbar stayed at the scene and does not face any charges, police said.

        Without the semi-long story that goes with it: My husband the “corpse-man” returned from his second tour in the Sunni Triangle with tales of treating an enemy combatant whose name was Azwad Fuqad. Run that through your Farsi-to-deep-Georgia-Drawl translator and you’ll understand why the poor guy became a permanent laughingstock until transferred to another detention facility. “Gotcher A s s w a d F u * k w a d, sign here.”

      I wouldn’t count on it.

      No. He went to the untouchable shoe, KFC, malt liquor place in hell where he will be just our of reach of these items. It will also be working for eternity. The ultimate hell for a negro.

        And where the cars only come in bright pink, are speed limited to walking speed, and play classical music at top volume.

    I thought the media just reported bad news?

    • Nancy

      I know, right? Glad to see they still print “feel-good” pieces.

  • Conrad

    I have to wonder what the heck is in their heads. What ever it is, it ain’t tuned to the same frequency as most other folks.

    • What is going on in their tiny little heads? “I gots ta be haben dat ting! Gibs me dat shiny ting!”

      • nBmnp

        Maybe you should teach psychology at college?

        Oh wait, no, that wouldn’t work – you would be finished after one lesson and the students wouldn’t know what to learn for the rest of the semester.

    • APaige

      In their heads? A small IQ?

    • nBmnp

      Exactly. I wouldn’t risk my life for Air Jordans.

      Yes, even if they were sold out.

    Low negro impulse control results in another negro death. I’m crying into my beer.

      Researchers find that higher-IQ children do best on impulse control. Some primate subspecies don’t even learn it by near-adulthood.

  • George Clark

    I know that I ought not find this amusing, but…irony is good for the blood, or so I have heard.

  • The “teens” that ran from the scene (if found) should be charged with homicide.

  • ‘”The juvenile wasn’t able to get in line in time or whatever to get some of these shoes,” Miami Twp. police Sgt. Jay Phares said.’

    I love the ‘or whatever’.

  • Dave4088

    I wonder what color the shooter was? My guess is he might possibly be black or non-white otherwise this would be national news and the loony leftites and professional negroes would be taking to the airwaves claiming this sweet, young afro-merican youth was assassinated when he was just minding his own bitness (sic) trying to buy some sneakers.

    By ending Jawaad’s budding life of crime, this concealed carry holder has just prevented more white women from getting raped and prevented more violent crimes from being perpetrated, so regardless of his race we owe him a debt of gratitude.

    • Who Me?

      The shooter had just bought a pair of the fancy shoes, so naturally he was black too. Most White people got better sense than to pay $200, for a $65. (max.) pair of shoes.

      • A white guy would have mail-ordered several pairs online much earlier and then sold them on eBay at a hefty markup. He wouldn’t have been waiting in a line.

      • evilsandmich

        Part of the mystery for me as well is…do black people all wear the same shoe size?

        • Cid Campeador

          Excellent point! Was the “victim” also Afro?

        • MannyR

          Do you really think a person that would rob someone at gun point for shoes thought that far ahead?

          • Cheri Rodriguez

            Absolutely. There were some black bank robbers in Bridgeport, CT a few years back who called ahead and said “Have the money ready!” The money was ready when they got there…and so were the cops.

          • MannyR

            Are you making a funny or are you being serious, because if your telling the truth I may have to compose myself for a while.

          • Cheri Rodriguez

            Google “Bridgeport bank robbery have the money ready.” It happened in March 2010.

          • John Smith

            Too lazy to steal….

        • Robert Smith

          Believe it or not some of them collect Air Jordan’s like baseball cards.

          • thomasdosborneii

            Or maybe the sell them at a discount and pocket the difference? Little enterprisers, except this one wanted to get rid of the overhead.

          • The ghetto vernacular is “shoe game.”

          • Nancy

            That’s true…when I taught English at a small private high school, the black boys (who could barely compose a coherent sentence) would spend all their free time online, looking at or designing their own shoes.

            One idiot actually had a pair in his locker that were brand-new, still in the box. Then something happened to the shoes he wore to school that day (I don’t recall what exactly…like they got paint or something on them during art class), and he went up to the front office to call his mother to bring him more shoes, even though he had a perfectly good pair in his locker. He had no intention of taking them out of the box and wearing them, though.

            I sometimes watch Celebrity House Hunting, and one episode featured that fat, talent-less Bantu noise-maker Biz Markie. He started out showing why his current home was no longer acceptable: He needed a bigger house for his growing sneaker collection.

      • MrGJG

        The article says the shooter had a valid concealed carry permit, so the odds of it being a black guy shrinks exponentially.

      • Hy Alldredge

        I had a Dominican student once who didn’t really “do” high school. We got along though and he once showed me his eBay site where he sold shoes that he had camped out for at an insane markup. He was pulling down some serious cash.

        On a side note, a Chinese student told me that in China nobody wears Nikes because they know they’re cheap crap that cost around $3 to make.

        • A few weeks ago, I saw a story out of Memphis about a black truck driver stealing a shipment of another Nike recently released basketball goon shoes. Those retailed for $200, and in passing, the article states that the retailers themselves pay $83.10 a pair to buy them from Nike. I did a little more research and found out that Nike’s typical unit cost including trans-oceanic shipping is $16, and that $3 as factory wholesale would not surprise me.

          Plain words, a lot of people are laughing their way to a whole lot of banks, because Bellcurvius loves tacky bling and ostentatious consumption.

  • david dorian

    Will the message get out— there are serious consequences to pulling a gun and threatening people to get what you want.

    Thank God the guy defending himself was not charged, harangued or annoyed for his basic right to defend himself. That’s my concern,

    • Nonhumans

      Given that he had bought a pair, is revealing that he was prob a nonhuman as well. That’s why the libtards and media aren’t touching this one. Doesn’t fit the narrative.

  • crockadoodle6

    Now the poor shooter will spend the next 8 yrs defending himself in civil court.

    The obit of this genius: ‘Jabbar’ was a good boy and aspiring rap artist. Since dropping out of school in the 6th grade at age 15 he has been studying for his GED.
    He is survived by 5 children, 4 different baby momma’s (one set of twins) and 12 brothers and sisters (we think). When not studying he loved to wake up at 1:30 pm and throw rocks from the Interstate Bridge and start fires with wooden matches. He loved basketball and could collect termites out of dead wood with a piece of straw. He attended the East Central Blister Mosque and was a devoted son, father, brother and entrepreneur. RIP Jabbar. The world has lost a potential opinion leader far too early. His mother requests all donations be sent to Rev Al Sharpton who will give the eulogy.

    • TL2014

      Probably nothing will happen to the victim, who is likely black also. Case closed.

    • Michael Whalen

      Crock, you are making me urinate in my Fruit-of-the-Looms. Let me guess. You majored in English lit in college.

    • Michael Whalen

      Collect termites? Let me guess again. You are also an aficionado of National Geographic magazine and Jane Goodall.

    • Caucasoid88

      I laughed out loud, or LOLed as the kids say.

    • Nancy


      “His mother requests all donations be made to the ‘Justice For Jawar’ Fund, to offset the alleged ‘funeral costs’. (It be expensive to throw a wake for the dozens of ghetto neighbors who barely knew him, but since his death they all swear that he was ‘just like a son’.)”

  • Stupidity is its own reward. In this case, to paraphrase author Robert Heinlein (R.I.P.), there is also no appeal.

    How in god’s name does the leftist media turn some young black punk robber into an abused-by-white-people saint? After seeing this promoted by the media for the past couple of years, I believe that many people are starting to question the narrative.

    • Nonhumans

      A lot more people are definitely coming around. Though the intelligent ones and those with firsthand experience with nonhumans never believed it to begin with.

    A recent poll showed that, for the first time, over 50% of Americans believed gun rights outweighed gun restrictions. And gun sales have been up for the past several years. We’re going to see more incidents like this as people tire of being victims.

  • Where did this “yoof”, this “child”, this “infant” – fetus, really – get the handgun he used in his attempted robbery?

      take a guess?

  • LHathaway

    Sometimes, you just gotta give up the shoes. I hear in prison, that’s a terrible disgrace to have your shoes stolen. . .

  • Sue

    I didn’t see anywhere that Jabbar had a valid concealed carry permit or a legal gun at all. Maybe I missed it?

    • mike j

      All of those “protesters” have been trying to explain to you that blacks are exempt from the laws. You didn’t miss that, did you?

    Good…we NEED to have violent criminals experience lethal self defense more often.

    No apologies.

  • benvad

    I hope he suffered.

    • phillyguy

      I don’t think so, the people who have permits to carry concealed weapons are good shots.

  • benvad

    They want to be muslims? Then apply sharia to them according to the law. Cut off his left hand if he had survived the bullets.

    • Michael Whalen

      Cut off his RIGHT hand. I spent 30 days in Saudi Arabia in July of 1984 with the Air Force. The Saudis cut off your RIGHT hand, because you use the left hand to wipe yourself. Nobody wants to shake your left hand in greeting.

    Jabbar, who went by JJ, moved to Middletown from Columbus to live with his father. People who knew him said he was well mannered.


    If he was well mannered one can only imagine the barbarism of all the other black thugs.

    • “Well mannered”?
      Then the incident must have involved “Gimme ya m-f-ing shoes before I blow your m-f-ing head off, PLEASE!”

    He was black? Would of never guessed. Jawaad Jabbar? Sounds as American as Islam. I live in Ohio. Spent time in Middletown. WAS a nice place.

    • John Smith

      Middletown has been a sh*thole for a long time, worse than even Hamilton, IMO. The only reason to go there is to buy guns, ammo from AIM Surplus.

      • mattj458

        Maybe I was young and dumb. Check that. Young and naive.

        • John Smith

          My mother worked in Hamilton for several years before she got married, during the 60s, and it wasn’t great back then. Middletown was always worse than next-door Hamilton, being a fairly dirty steel town. Her father owned a trucking company and always carried a gun if driving to deliver in Middletown, even in the 50s. Both cities are waaay overrepresented for crime stories in the local media, especially for being fairly small cities.

          • mattj458

            Can agree. I was there because my buddy worked at Lebanon.

    Darn the luck. He just got there a smidge too late to pay for the shoes he wanted. He had no intention whatsoever of robbing anyone. They were just sold out, you see. Damn long lines. Hey, good thing he just happened to have his underage pistol, ya just never know, do you? (Riiiiiight.) Another “journalist” trying to cover for the perp.

  • Magician

    Isn’t this a beautiful world? Now we are drawing our firearm because of a pair of shoes assembled in China for less than $5USD per pair.

    I was going to say, “Didn’t the man who bought the shoes in the first place go too far?” but I realized that he must have felt threatened and his life was in danger when he saw the young man pulled his own gun at him.

    That sounds like something that happened near to where I live. A man coming home from work was attacked by three black teenagers with guns. Fortunately, that man was coming home from his job as an armed security guard. Fortunately again, he was a military veteran, so he was good with guns. He shot two, killing one. The third fled. He was not charged with anything. It was justifiable homicide.

    • Epiminondas

      Hell, or dirt. I’d gladly send half of them to either.

  • Who Me?

    I got sick watching that filth. How disgusting!

  • If I was making a product, I would be on my knees every night praying every deity known to man that my product does not become especially popular among blacks.

    For if it does, non-blacks will quit buying it, and at that point, I’d be at the mercy of the black consumer market.

    From that point, one or more of four things will happen:

    1. The Sharpton and Jackson style shakedowns, the local and national cracker jack box theology degree crowd will be hounding me for making money off of black people without “giving back” (i.e. giving affirmative action sinecures to the nieces of black “revvunds”).

    2. Blacks will start shooting each other over the possession of my product. I’ll get all the PR headache, not the black criminals. I’ll be asked to pull my product.

    3. In the true Holtean spirit of “inverse relationship between the logic of an idea and its acceptance as conventional wisdom in bell curve city,” someone will start a rumor that my product has secret chemicals implanted in it that makes black men sterile, or some such. The rumor will spread like wild fire, and sales will go down to zero within a month. Hello Chapter 7.

    4. Ferguson. White cop has to defend his life against a black ne’er-do-well, followed by the inevitable Category Three, and stores where my product is sold are looted and burned to the ground.

    • MBlanc46

      I’ve been reading your posts for some time now, QD, and I’d hazard a guess that if you were making a product, it wouldn’t be one that would be found attractive by that demographic group.

      • Neither did the makers of the Marmot Biggie coat. They would have never guessed in a zillion years.

        • MBlanc46

          I trust that you are socially aware enough to know that “big clothes” attract Negroes like flies to excrement.

          • Sure I do. But even I would have never guessed that big fluffy heavily padded coats designed for and marketed to the well to do ski crowd that hangs out in Vail and Telluride and Aspen would have ever caught on in the ghetto.

  • R L Buds

    A while back i read that Jordan supposedly said his shoes were for white sub-urban kids.

    Apparently what he meant was the shoes were for them to buy then the black urban teens can just invoke their civil rights to take whiteys purchase.

    See, it’s the perfect circle of life, blacky gets rich, whitey pays (in every way), and the core of their sociey gets new shoes.

    • Magician

      Yes, the bottom line is this person tried to steal the shoes using a deadly weapon. It does look like the article is overly emphasizing that the killed person tried to pay for those shoes first but it turned into a “robbery gone wrong”.

  • Lkoehn

    Another one bites the dust. When will the reality of black criminality be spoken about as the real cause for racial profiling and the death of black kids at the hands of their intended victims?

  • The Dude

    1) One less thug – check.
    2) One less negro – check.
    3) Taxpayer money in courts and prisons saved – check.

    Seeing his picture, and seeing the assailant was a Negaroe, shocked me. Shocked, I tell you. I can hear his mother say it was a set up by White Supremacists, just like the Central Park Jogger perps. And the other just shot her Jabone wifout any reason. He was “a sweet boy,” always helped his mother shoplift, and shared the drug money evenly wif her. He din do nuffins.
