JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A man convicted of killing his girlfriend on Thanksgiving 2012 then running off now faces life in prison.
Calvin Bruce Wright, 25, was convicted Tuesday afternoon of Murder in the Second Degree, five counts of Attempted Murder in the Second Degree, and one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
In November 2012, Wright and 24-year-old Rolisha Thomas, were involved in an argument in front of her Almeda Street home. Thomas told Wright that she no longer wanted to be in a relationship with him and that she wanted her cell phone back. During the argument, Wright pulled a gun from his waistband and shot the victim at point blank range. He then turned toward several others that had witnessed the shooting, including members of both the victim and his own family, and fired multiple shots in their direction.
Thomas now faces life in prison. He will be sentenced the week of March 18.

Doesnt seem like a logical or even possible outcome to someone asking for a cellphone back, until you go and read the afreakan papers and see this is mild and completely common among them. I am starting to study more and more to try and figure out how they think prior to acting and why thier value on life is so deflated as compared to many others. It is impossible to find any sort of answers in the US without immediately being called a racist so I figured, even through the only kind of evolution that is viable; micro, the fact that they are only 5 or so generations removed from thier afreakan tribal begining makes it an excellent place to try and figure out behavior patterns along with thought patterns. Needless to say it only took a short amount of time to start making valid and meaningful correlations between the two continents for the single species. The high crime rates and the violence involved as well as that diminished care or respect of life is in fact universal, with few notable exceptions, regardless of location! Amazing no? Anyway I would suggest doing the same and you too will be able to draw conclusions and see the details that tie so closely together whether it be a American city or an afreakant ghetto, there truly is not much difference. In fact please also take note of the manipulation of an area, again crossing over to any area that is predominently afrekan and notice how they seem to infest and destroy thier habitats regardless of socioeconomic benefactors. Interesting stuff indeed! I cannot be the first to do this, where is this research funded by some large university or government? If we need to know if a mechanical squirrel can crack metal nuts, I would think the succesful integration and management of a violent species deservers a bit of research and funding as well...
