This really isn't a case to me that can be blamed on lack of anonymity

From all indications it is likely his openness about good fortune including charitable purchases around holiday that drew attention of these individuals

Also for this thread ,, There is good and bad in every community

Was the murderer of Abraham Shakeseare not a white women? A very manly looking one at that

Seems to me those commenting with some of the racial stuff have very little interaction with black community to begin with and draw all there conclusions based on mugshots and news stories

I live in a poor area that is predominantly black ,, Its not a good area but generally most people around are decent and just trying to get thru life. The scum simply stick out because of the violent/criminal acts that gain them notoriety

Very true. It doesn't excuse the hood rats for killing him, but he should have kept it quiet.

    Seven people were charged Monday in the shooting death of a lottery winner more than two months ago.

    The arrests were all made after a lengthy investigation into Craigory Burch Jr.'s death.

    The former forklift driver hit the $434,272 instant prize from the Georgia Lottery when he matched all five numbers from the Nov. 29, 2015 Fantasy 5 drawing.

    Six of the seven are in custody in the Ben Hill County Jail. One remaining suspect is in custody in Colquitt County.

    Two of the suspects are women, Rosalyn Swain, 22, of Fitzgerald, and Keyona Dyous, 24, of Moultrie.

    The others are Earnest Holcomb, 27, of Fitzgerald, 17-year-old Wayan Jordan, of Fitzgerald who will be charged as an adult, Dabrentis Overstreet, 19, of Tifton, Nathaniel Baker, 28, of Moultrie, and Anjavell Johnson, 21, of Tifton.

    All are charged with malice murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault, and possession of firearm during the commission of the crime.

    Authorities believe three masked people stormed in the home on Stubbs Avenue in the late hours of Jan. 20, intent on Burch's recent lottery winnings.

    (See Georgia Lottery winner killed during home invasion, Lottery Post, Jan. 21, 2016.)

    Burch was shot several times and died at the scene.

    The District Attorney's office has not released how the some of the suspects fit in this crime, and who acted in what capacity. The investigation is ongoing.

    The arrests come after weeks of investigating since the crime, and receiving national media attention.

    Investigators said Burch's girlfriend, Jasmine Hendricks, was in the home at the time and ran for help. A shotgun blast blew open the door and three masked, armed men ran in, she said.

    "When they came in, he said, 'Don't do it, bro. Don't do it in front of my kids,'" Hendricks recalled. "'Please don't do it in front of my kids and old lady. Please don't do that, bro. Please don't.' He said, 'I'll give you my bank card.'"

    Hendricks said Burch then threw his pants to the robbers, who looked for but couldn't find his wallet.

    The intruders then shot and killed Burch before running away.

    Thanks to hearsetrax and konane for the tip.

    It is terrible, but sadly I am not surprised. Publicly attracts trouble, all state lotteries should allow winners the option to remain anonymous.

    Even strong-willed can feel enormous pressure to "help" family and friends. While it can start reasonable at first,  it can deteriorate. Many winners have gone broke "helping" other.

    State governments should address this issue or we will see more such cases.

    We all get a lot out of lotteries!

          They do;  the State of Georgia executed five last year and two so far this year.  I think any of those 7 human stains who were there would definitely qualify for the DP, committing murder with one or more of the following aggravating circumstances as per Georgia statute:

          Offender was in the process of committing another capital crime, aggravated battery, burglary, or arson.
          Offender used or possessed a weapon or device capable of causing significant harm to more than one person simultaneously.
          Offender committed offense for monetary gain.

            They want the trigger guy. The rest will rat him out to save their own necks. If some go to

            prison for a very long time, good. The accomplices who get off probably won't change too

            much and will be lucky to see 30, or they'll get 30.

             

            Seven people to split whatever the poor guy had left. He may have been a good guy, we don't know.

            He sure does look like the bad guy type. Maybe that money was going to make big life changes

            for him and his family, now it's in someone else's hands to decide what to do with it. I hope it's

            good decisions that someone makes starting with the kids. Sometimes it's possible to shed a

            stigma and a tag, they have the means and I hope they have the determination.

             

            Someone said where is BLM? They aren't interested in things like this, there is no white or

            hispanic or other ethnic individual or group to attack under the sham of protecting black lives.

            BLM is a joke. They are violent, they are combative and the founders are as guilty as a redneck 

            down south who attends secret kkk meetings in someone's barn in the woods. They invoke hatred,

            bring unrest, use race to keep the marchers marching and the picketers picketing. They feed the

            very people they are claiming to protect information and opinion that keeps blacks where some 

            people - racists - think they should be...in a downward spiral of criminal acts, high school drop outs,

            convicted and incarcerated, unmarried, children of different mothers/fathers and at a place with no

            hope other than to continue a vicious cycle of failure from generation to generation.

             

            Instead of emphasizing the small percentage of white on black atrocity and setting a stage where

            participants and ringleaders look like a bunch of clowns trying to keep racism alive in the world, 

            they need to take their own hoods off and do good for the people/race they claim to protect.

            The founders who created this monster need to be thrown in jail. If not for creating civil unrest,

            then for the twisted enabling of what's viewed as a black condition and crippling the rights

            of a race of people to thrive and move forward. They need to stop being the problem and start

            being the answer. That doesn't happen when you tell someone to hate. It doesn't happen either 

            when when you fuel your followings fire by bringing attention to a few cases of very poor judgement

            by using the race card. Stomp out racism...don't keep it alive by helping the few that are dead...

            help the living by not using a negative message that does nothing for them except keep them at

            a place that drowns hope, change and escape.

             

            The leaders of this farce are comfortable and happy where they are, who else is happy? The rest

            are just angry.

                dr65,

                This is one of the most truthful and powerful post, I have ever seen on LP. The color of your skin is not important, just your heart and soul. Two weeks ago, I spent 3 days with my son and his wife. My granddaughter, who is a teacher in Columbus, Ga. One night, after dinner, she and I had a conversation and she spoke some of your same words, about the Black kids, she teaches. Grandpa, she stated, if we teachers can't get thru to them, they don't have a chance of survival. So many of them, get no support or love from their fathers or mothers. She is my pride and joy.

                    What a ignorant thing to say.

                    Really?  I think actions speak louder than words.

                    What's really ignorant is getting oneself locked up for murder with all the accomplices.

                    • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                    • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                    • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                              (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

                      This is annual crime data complied by the FBI in 2012 from Wiki. Although I agree with u regarding some bigoted comments here were uncalled for. Ur crime data has serious logical flaws. Blacks commit crime more than twice as Whites by % of population. Whites commit more hate-related crimes than any other races. U gotta remember about 73% of Americans are White, so Whites do commit more overall crime than any other races, no one should be surprised by this. Most criminals in China are probably Chinese.

                      Characteristics of offenders vary from the average for specific types of crimes and specific crimes. In terms of violent crime by gender, in 2011, 80.4% of arrested persons were male and 19.6% were female.[21] Males were 88.2% of those arrested for homicide, while females were 11.8%.[21] Among those arrested for rape in 2011, males were 98.8% and females were 1.2%.[21] For property crime in 2011, 62.9% of arrested persons were male and 37.1% were female.[21]

                      For violent crime by race in 2011, 59.4% of those arrested were white, 38.3% were black, and 2.2% were of other races.[25] For persons arrested for homicide in 2011, 49.7% were black, 48% were white, and 2.3% were of other races.[25] For persons arrested for rape in 2011, 65% were white, 32.9% were black, and 2.1% were of other races.[25] For property crime in 2011, 68.1% of arrested persons were white, 29.5% were black, and 2.4% were of other races.[25]

                      In 2011, law enforcement reported 6,222 bias-motivated incidents, known as hate crimes, for which 5,731 offenders were identified.[28] Of these, 59% were white, 20.9% were black, 7.1% were of various races, 1.4% were Asian or Pacific Islanders, 0.8% were Native American, and 10.8% were of unknown race.[28]

                        Yes, your data IS flawed. 

                        "Consider the source?"  Deo used Wiki, but that shouldn't preclude that from being a reliable cite, especially when the source is the FBI Crime Database. FYI, in case you didn't know, the sources are down at the bottom, under "References". 

                        Your "facts" came verbatim from the US Uncut website.  My main problem with the article you quoted from (but did not cite!) is that they take those FBI stats and use them in a misleading way.  For example, I could say "There are many more left-handed people in California than there are in Wyoming." It's estimated that 10% of the population is left-handed and since the population of Wyoming is (according to the last US Census in 2010) 563,767 and the population of California is 37,254,503, of course there's going to be more lefties in California.

                        It's the same with crime statistics and racial demographics;  when you start trying to use a number to "prove" something, you have to factor in percentages, especially when you're comparing a percentile of the population, like this:

                        In 2012, white males were 38% of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were 6.6% of the population but committed 5,531 murders.

                        In other words: black men–at just a fifth of the comparable white male demographic–committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.

                        (source: FBI Expanded Homicide Data)

                        I could go on with more real facts backed up by sources, not those the US Uncut article fudged, but I'm sure you wouldn't like 'em.

                        My second problem with the article is one that's already been pointed out, the absurdly redundant "84 percent of white murder victims were white".  It's akin to "a little bit pregnant" or "No dead victims survived the train wreck."

                        Then there's the fact that it's obviously a Berniebot site.  Whatever they post has to fit their narrative, looks like...par for the course.  "It's THE MAN'S fault!"  I guess that IS a case where one should "consider the source".

                        Just more people desperately wanting to be perpetual victims, that's all.


                        A people that elect corrupt politicians, impostors, thieves and traitors are not victims...but accomplices.

                          If whites are more violent than blacks, why is it blacks are the ones always rioting, attacking people and burning down buildings?  And why do you have to shout when posting?

                              Hey bud...I'm talking about hundreds of useless human beings rioting, stealing, attacking people, burning down entire blocks of buildings and blaming it all on the cops.  That guy attacked a cop and tried to take his gun, so the cop shot him. 

                              And you talk about ONE nut who shot people in a movie theatre?  You f'n kidding me?
