Baltimore Man Accused Of Wounding 90-Year-Old Woman After She Scolded Him For Littering

Police in Baltimore are looking for this 26-year-old for attempted first-degree murder in a particularly heinous alleged crime.  Gerald Gaffney is accused of firing at a 90-year-old woman after she scolded him for throwing chicken bones on the ground. It appears that littering may not be the only offense that Gaffney is comfortable with.

If police are correct, this was a premeditated crime.  After the elderly lady told Gaffney to threw his litter in a trash can, he allegedly started to argue with her and another woman before leaving the area.  He then returned with a handgun and opened fire. Both the 90-year-old and a 56-year-old man were hit by gunfire.

Police are seeking him. He is described as 6-foot-4-inches tall and weighs 250 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.  He is also  inclined to littering.

What is interesting about this type of case is the aggravating circumstance.  Anyone willing to shoot an elderly lady for scolding him is obviously an imminent and lasting threat to society.

  1. If the charges are proven it is certain he is going away for a long time. I put high odds that he has an extensive criminal record given the level of depravity of the accused crime.

  2. Depraved. An entire culture has eroded within a generation. When I grew up, “respect your elders” was a universally respected rule. And 90 year old ladies were allowed to scold you all they liked. You’d still have to carry their groceries, open doors for them, and “yes ma’am” them.

    I am so frustrated and worried about our youngest generation. I realize that such worry has been ubiquitous of one generation for the next, but there really seems to be a loss of intrinsic values and respect, essential for a society that lasts. We’ve raised rude, neurotic, self destructive emperors.

    And here we have yet another young man, who looks healthy and fit, even with an Amish beard. Merely being healthy and having a body that works is a gift beyond so many people struggling with illness and disability. And he’s thrown it away and locked himself in a cage. Is he going to feel like such a bad a%& when people tell him what and when to eat, he has to go potty in front of people, wear prison clothes, and live in a zoo with bad people for who knows how many years? Boy, he showed her, didn’t he.

      They’re commonly directionless and have sleazoid sexual mores (as well as n attraction to cretins like Barack Obama). Certain categories of violent crime – rape and aggravated assault – are a great deal more common than they were in 1960 (by 2.9 and 2.7 fold, respectively), but notably less common than they were 25 years ago. (by about 35% and 45% respectively). Robbery’s more common than it was in 1960 (by about 70%), but the frequency of it has fallen more than 60% over the last 25 years and it’s now no more prevalent than it was in 1967. The homicide rate was (pre-Ferguson), slightly lower than it was in 1960, as was the burglary rate. Auto theft is more common than it was in 1960 on a per capita basis (+20%), but less common on a per household basis (-9%) or per vehicle basis (-40%).

      And, of course, Baltimore has an understaffed police force currently being harassed by politicians.

    • “Imminent and lasting threat to society” well said by the Professor.

      But we have a bigger problem festering…..

  3. No doubt we will hear about his rough life, his hardships. You know what I’m sick of this kind of person who thinks guns are the answer to everything. Black or white rich or poor once you pick up a gun AND I just want you off the streets…. yes off the streets. YOU ARE A DANGER TO SOCIETY.

      • Tax Payer-
        — I have done numerous searches to find out what happened re the 2013 murder arrest.
        I’ve come up empty..
        .”reporters” are often sloppy/ lazy when it comes to followup/updates on the original story.
        And maybe one out of ten media outlets bother to mention the 2013 arrest in the current “chicken-litter” story.

  4. Thanks, LBJ for your Great Society, and for ridding the US of black poverty! And thanks, Congresscritters for the war against drugs, and all the myriad wars we fight. This gentle giant of a black man proves how wonderful is it with most black fathers rotting in jail, and government aid filling the role of the father. This young black man proves how well black male children turn out without a biological father figure, and government hand outs filling that useless role.

    Also, thank goodness that Roe v. Wade insures that all black babies are wanted and loved. It’s just wonderful that modern sexual roles promote black women to get pregnant with whatever male is available! How splendid, and how enlightened we are now as a society. It is really great to have 77% of black babies born to unmarried parents. What a great path to success! And it’s oh so easy to confirm the proven results! Fantastic!

    • He happens to be black. So what? How many stories, does JT post, showing inbred, white, toothless and tatted up hillbillies, who have been involved in a myriad of various crimes? Do you go off on one of your Mein Kamph-like diatribes after a photo of one of your own white sociopaths–often displayed by JT–commits some inexplicable crime, railing about how white trash should stop cooking up meth, f’ing their siblings and drinking Mountain Dew? Yes, this dirt bag is black. And? He threw chicken bones on the ground, shot up a couple of people, because of LBJ? Because of abortions? Because of poverty? Because of his skin color? Maybe if you spent some time, away from those Klan meetings, you would realize that stark raving idiots and lunatics come in all shapes and colors. H@ll, just glance in the mirror.

      • Way to go on the virtue signaling!

        Now I know you’re a good person, not evil like the person you just reprimanded.

        • Why are you defending an ardent racist from being called out for his stupidity and hypocrisy? It sounds like you agree with him. Folks claim racism is dead and there is only reverse racism when you can’t look at a story involving a black or latino perpetrator without at least 80% of the comments on any non-liberal forum centered on race. Whether it’s here, yahoo or youtube. And the one’s that sound most like an ed-norton speech from American History X have the most likes. God forbid it’s an actual conservative forum, you’ll undoubtedly see accusations of “chimping out” “feral” behavior and other archaic racist descriptions that sound like they belong in the 19th century. Let the perpetrator be white and then you’ll here little to no mention of race. Half the comments will be empathetic with the perpetrator – more if the victim is a minority.

          • Actually, I am of Hispanic origin and therefore by definition, cannot be racist, sexist or homophobic. I’m part of a recognized victim group.

            • bull. Racism against darker denizens is commonplace in many hispanic societies and is rooted in the spanish resentment of the moors who ruled them for 700 years prior to the columbus expedition. Indigenous and Afro-Latino’s have been viewed as lesser beings and discriminated against for years in countries from South America to the Carribean, some private institutions even engaging in litmus tests as recently as the turn of the century. And knowing you’re of Cuban descent doesn’t make it better. My ancestry is 25% Cuban so I think it’s ok for me to say it. To anyone who’s unaware google “Racism in Cuba” for plenty of material to fill you in on how antonio by definition cannot be racist, sexist or homophobic

              • CK07 – I did google Racism in Cuba and found what i knew to be true. They have institutionalized racism. By definition antonio is a racist.

                • Bingo- I should have noted the last sentence was completely sarcastic. I have a bad habit of sticking in sarcasm without adding “/Sarc off” but in context with the beggining I think you got it, just making sure.

                  • CK07 – I remember black militants escaping to Cuba in the 60s and 70s and then complaining about how poorly treated they were. 🙂

              • Oh come on. Darker skinned people are considered less attractive and less everything all over the world. In every culture. and I rather doubt that the Arabs who crossed the Mediterranean and conquered Spain had complexions any darker than the Spaniards. Arabs are Semites and their coloring is about the same as Jews. Spaniards range from light to dark, much like Italians and Portuguese. The racism in Cuba and other Hispanic countries is based in the fact that white Cubans are of European heritage and tend to be successful. Ted Cruz’s father came to Cuba from Spain as a representative of the RCA Corporation. The blacks in Cuba are descendants of African slaves. People base their perceptions of others on a combination of what they learned and what they experience in their day-to-day lives.

                • No, Ted Cruz paternal-side grandfather was born in the Canary Islands and migrated to Cuba as a child. His grandmother was born in Cuba, as was his father. (Ted Cruz mother is Italian on one side and Irish / Old stock American on the other, with the Italian side much more prominent in her upbringing. The odyssey of these two people over the years is quite a story, but it does not include much in the way of fidelity to their foundational domestic cultures. Not also that Ted Cruz wife is neither Cuban nor Italian and grew up in the rather eccentric world of Seventh-Day Adventist congregations – one her brother still occupies and she does not).

                • TIN- one point of contention, the moors were not entirely and probably not even mostly Arab. For evidence look no further than Bartolomme de las casas justification of enslaving Africans over indigenous people when he proposed the “just war theory” that catalyze the mid-Atlantic slave trade. Because Africans has conquered spain and we’re viewed as being in an ongoing war enslaving them was just in his view whereas enslaving innocent natives was wrong. He later regretted these views but the Spaniards didn’t think their enemies were Arab, though now people consider everything in Northern Africa Arab or white (and over hundreds of years it has gentrified)

            • Yet the comments aren’t based on their race Paul. Read what I wrote. Any time the perp is a minority on the forums I mentioned the majority can’t help but bring race into the discussion. Here you may be less likely to have empathy for such a savage act, but hardly any posts will be found disparaging an entire race.

          • I don’t agree with your comments at all. Hasn’t anyone told you that white people are now the most hated race on planet Earth? It’s called White privilege. We are suppose to give every dime we ever made to support Blacks and we are suppose to Love open borders so every person from every country on planet Earth can just walk into America and be given full citizenship benefits PLUS more than a born in America citizen receives. That’s what Hillary and Obama want for America. It was called TRANSFORM AMERICA and frankly, Obama almost succeeded. I biased against Muslims for sure because they kill Americans. I’m biased against white people who kill anyone and I’m biased against Black people who kill anyone. So guess I’m racist!

            • If you believe white people are the most hated people on planet earth you obviously haven’t read the comments section on any youtube, yahoo, or conservative site involving minority perpetrators or excessive force and minority victims. If you’re biased against the killer and not the race then why is race always mentioned again and again in situations involving minority killers and hardly mentioned at all or not mentioned if the killer is white? Why are you oblivious to that dichotomy.

              Stop wallowing in your sorrows because videos show a black man trying to get into his own car for more than a minute will have the cops called him immediately while a white man can do the same for 30 minutes and an officer even offers to help him get in with no issue, and we call it white privilege. Obama deported more immigrants than any president yet you say he almost succeeded in letting anyone in from anywhere. You’ve obviously been brainwashed. I’m speaking in objective statements, you’re speaking in sentiment. If you’re so sensitive that you feel you’re the most hated person in america you probably wouldn’t last a week in the shoes of a 1st or second generation immigrant in a society that largely feels you are inferior and isn’t eager to hire you for work you’re over qualified for thanks to negative stereotypes. Meanwhile this Depends hat wearing fool posting below is illustrating my point exactly. Where are these type of comments with white perps if whites are truly the most hated race in the world?

          • It has turned in to the planet of the apes out here.these little monkeys are destroying America…something has to be done..and I don’t care what any one says ..they need to put back on a leash.👏

            • No surprise a brain fart from someone named “depends Daniels”. I suppose they call you that because your brain is composed of fecal matter hence why the doctors advised on the “Depends” hat.

        • Perhaps if you were a good person, you would call out a person who, consistently, blames all of the evils of this world, on blacks and Jews? His M.O. Your silence, by not negating what this loon persistently claims, is a form of acquiescence. Way to go.

          • I am a good person. Actually, I am of Hispanic origin and therefore by definition, cannot be racist, sexist or homophobic. I’m part of a recognized victim group.

              • My family were refugees from the workers paradise of Cuba. Have a Spanish name.

                Are you the arbiter of this? Who died and made you…?

                • antonio – the Census Bureau, until recently, counted Hispanics as white. Having taught Hispanic students I know some can be very racist, especially about black. Still, there is the whole La Raza thing in the Southwest with Hispanics hating all whites and wanting the Southwestern states back.

                  • If I were a liberal “bitch and moan”, Hispanic, you would be kissing my behind and trying to suck up to me.

                    And when La Raza demands the US Southwest back in 50 years, Anglo liberal journalists will be writing pieces trying to explain and justify it all.

                    And again, by your own definition, I am a recognized member of a victim group. I cannot be a horrible, evil racist person. Or does that apply only to liberal minorities?

                    I thought multiculturalism was supposed to usher in a new paradise.

                    Don’t you just love identity politics?

                    Antonio

                    • antonio – I do not believe in identity politics and I refuse to see you as a victim of anything, except yourself. I have seen too many kids, black, brown and white be the first in their family to graduate from high school and then be the first to go to college. What is your claim to victimhood? Cubans in the USA are not victims.

      • bam bam. I get it. It pisses you off. But what about the core argument he appears to be making: that democrats’ social programs aimed at helping poor inner-city minorities has not helped them? The likely victim here is an “African-American” (thought she may never have been to that continent) grandmother. Why should she suffer because, PCism?

        • If you are going to associate every crime–and, I do mean, every crime–with some sort of broader, societal explanation for it, well, then, let’s have it. Across the board. Let’s be consistent. Let’s not just have a field day when some sociopathic black kid decides that he is gonna shoot up a couple of people because they chastised him over littering. Let’s see the rants and bashing over the white, psychotic fools, who commit any assortment of heinous crimes–whose mugshots are frequently plastered on this forum–and view the avalanche of criticism over how whites, in general, have failed if they produced such inferior and demented individuals. I have yet to read a single thread associated with JT, in which a white individual, who, allegedly committed some type of crime, has been depicted as a symptom of a failing and declining race. How whites have so throughly and completely tumbled, as a race, to ever produce such a menace to society. It has never happened and, quite frankly, it never will. We view white criminals as anomalies, yet many on here have no problem, whatsoever, equating the deeds of one black man with all of the ills of the black community. Guess what? Sometimes a rose is just that–a rose.

          • Whoa! I’m sorry! I did t mean to imply that any “race” was to blame for this a-hole! And I agree
            that you can line up psychos and there will be an equal number of each race. What I’m trying to say, is that one political party has made a fortune off the portrayal
            of its “progressive”
            Ideas that are based on two fallacies: 1. That they will improve lives and 2. That the target group is in need of and deserving of special
            treatment. Calling them out on it,
            Cannot be construed as “racism.”

            • This is a story about one, particular individual who happens to be severely disturbed. Period. If you want to ramble on about Obama and Clinton, including some off topic delusions about liberals, have at it. Wholly unrelated to the story at hand.

      • “He happens to be black. So what?”

        Please! You don’t really believe this yourself. I bet you live in a nice, exclusive neighborhood and send your kids to a private school.

        I love how Anglo, White liberals love to virtue signal and never get their hands dirty. Of course, being politically correct does not require one to “get their hands dirty, now does it?” It just requires expressing the right opinion to the right people, in the right forum.

        • ” “He happens to be black. So what?” … Please! You don’t really believe this yourself.It just requires expressing the right opinion to the right people, in the right forum.”

          Don’t believe what? Tell us about it, please? What is it that you believe is being left out of the conversation?

          He happens to be black. So, will you please tell us what you believe the implications of that fact are?

          BTW, don’t be shy expressing your opinion on this forum. There are no wrong opinions here. Occasionally there are some opinions that are poorly expressed, poorly explained, or poorly defended.

          • Differences in crime rates. You know darn well, what I am talking about.

            Read the Color of Crime. Can be easily accessed online. Has been referred to in this current forum.

            And if you reply, do so with FACTS, not a slur.

            • “And if you reply, do so with FACTS, not a slur.”

              I asked a very reasonable question, ‘what do you believe is left out of the conversation? I know I am interested in you opinion. I am sure many others are interested.

              You seem to be claiming that I used a slur.

              If that is your claim then state which word in my comment is a slur.

            • ” You know darn well, what I am talking about. ”

              If I knew what you are talking about, I wouldn’t need to read the blog. To be clear, I have no idea what you are thinking unless you tell me.

            • “Read the Color of Crime. Can be easily accessed online. Has been referred to in this current forum. ”

              I might read a book you suggest. But it is not for me to assume what references guide your argument. It is not for me to make your argument.

              If you have something to say then spit it out.

              Don’t try to pretend that it is my job to make you arguments for you or make you opinions for you.

              If you don’t say it, there is no way for anyone here to know what you are thinking.

              • Not saying you said a slur, thus far. But you probably will call me names, if you read the color of crime and attempt to address the differences in crime rates. You won’t address the differences in black v white crime rates, except to call me a “racist”. And that is not an argument.

        • antonio – even exclusive neighborhoods are not that exclusive. They are exclusive just to keep out theft.

    • The guy is severely mentally disturbed. That doesn’t mean that all 6’4 250 lb people are mentally disturbed. It doesn’t mean that all people with Amish beards are mentally disturbed. While many people living in a culture with a long history of oppression and poverty are mentally disturbed, many others are normal and honorable people.

    • At least we don’t have Hillary in office to further the progressive Democrats right to do anything and everything that they want including all criminal activity with NO consequences.

  5. Well, he had the presence of mind to go home, get a gun, get strapped, come back and shoot at them. I am going with premeditated attempted homicide. Just to make it interesting, he looks Nation of Islam, without the bow-tie.

    • From the Color of Crime

      The evidence suggests that if there is police racial bias in arrests it is negligible. Victim and witness surveys show that police arrest violent criminals in close proportion to the rates at which criminals of different races commit violent crimes.
      Both violent and non­violent crime has been declining in the United States since a high in 1993. 2015 saw a disturbing rise in murder in major American cities that some observers associated with depolicing” in response to intense media and public scrutiny of police activity.

      Crime rates

      There are dramatic race differences in crime rates. Asians have the lowest rates, followed by whites, and then Hispanics. Blacks have notably high crime rates. This pattern holds true for virtually all crime categories and for virtually all age groups.
      In 2013, a black was six times more likely than a non­black to commit murder, and 12 times more likely to murder someone of another race than to be murdered by someone of another race.

      Interracial crime

      In 2013, of the approximately 660,000 crimes of interracial violence that involved blacks and whites, blacks were the perpetrators 85 percent of the time. This meant a black person was 27 times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa. A Hispanic was eight times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa.

      Urban centers

      In 2014 in New York City, a black was 31 times more likely than a white to be arrested for murder, and a Hispanic was 12.4 times more likely. For the crime of “shooting”—defined as firing a bullet that hits someone—a black was 98.4 times more likely than a white to be arrested, and a Hispanic was 23.6 times more likely.
      If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent.
      In an all­-white Chicago, murder would decline 90 percent, rape by 81 percent, and robbery by 90 percent.

      Police shootings

      In 2015, a black person was 2.45 times more likely than a white person to be shot and killed by the police. A Hispanic person was 1.21 times more likely. These figures are well within what would be expected given race differences in crime rates and likelihood to resist arrest.
      In 2015, police killings of blacks accounted for approximately 4 percent of homicides of blacks. Police killings of unarmed blacks accounted for approximately 0.6 percent of homicides of blacks. The overwhelming majority of black homicide victims (93 percent from 1980 to 2008) were killed by blacks.

  6. Aw, she probably had it coming for scolding other young homocidal psychotics. Moral: watch out who you moralize with. (Something all you Trumpophobes should keep in mind.)

    To this young man, I would recommend plastic surgery and a visa to North Korea.

  8. This is what comes of demolishing a perfectly good culture – in which one could never gains self-respect by preying on those physically weaker than himself – and replacing it with a crack/rap culture in which the perception of one’s own personal grievances overrides and justifies depraved indifference to all others. But, hey, it’s cool, right?

  9. So, what’s this mutt doing with a gun? Did he slip by a background check? Did someone buy it on the internet or at a fair and give it to him? The guy is obviously mentally unbalanced. Mental illness and/or rage is not confined to any race. The mutt should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Equally important should be the research into how this disgusting filth obtained a gun. If there is a chain of ownership and it was stolen then at the very least there should be an associated charge of negligence against the victim of the theft. Then on up from there. Freedom to arm one’s self to the teeth must come with societal control. It says that right there in the 2nd Amendment, right before the right to arm one’s self to the teeth; ‘a well regulated…’. All the rest is pathetic BS, worthy of types such as Trump.

    • Gun enthusiasts would argue that the 90 year old lady should have been carrying a loaded gun at all times to protect herself.

      • Doglover

        The sad fact of the matter is that your statement is religiously believed by millions, with millions, to buy and sell politicians. Common sense is continually being replaced with gun ‘rights’. The obligation to go around armed to the teeth has already been presented by the proponents of the last half of the second amendment. It’s that old problem of cherry picking the sacred texts.

        • Isaac…..
          With this guy’s rap sheet, previous criminal charges and convictions, he may not been legally in possesion of a firearm.
          Maryland has some of the strictest gun control laws in the U.S.
          And maybe Baltimore has strict laws against littering
          as well.
          Given all of this, I’d say he could not legally be in possesion of a firearm.
          There was, in his case, no “.. obligation to go around armed to the teeth”.
          You can have the strictest gun laws in the nation, you can repeal or modify the 2nd Amendment, you can pass a Constitutional Amendment making littering a federal felony.
          Not of these measures is likely to prevent an event like this.
          It’s possible that this guy doesn’t have a hell of lot of respect for the law.😏
          He may not even feel obligated to comply with the law.

    You are wrong on this one. Blacks are far and away the savage and violent people in our society. Here is a great article that Colin Flaherty wrote to Kat Timpf, after she whined about the poor blacks and how society treats them. There’s about 40 examples he gives:

    http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/05/black_people_dont_you_worry_about_bout_a_thing_kat_timpf_will_save_you.html

    And after that, you can watch these savage blacks yutes chimping out:

    • Squeeky, obviously, this individual needs to be arrested and prosecuted for his behavior. There is no doubt about it. This isn’t about making excuses or justifications for the insane and brutal acts committed by this person. So, there. No arguments from me. He needs to be arrested. Prosecuted to the fullest extent and locked away. No excuses made for him. He needs to be off of the streets. Permanently. I just will not equate, as you seem to do, this one lunatic’s decision, to shoot up a couple of people because they argued with him over littering, with some overly broad, general description as to how all blacks act in our society. A very odd and strange jump to make. This is a unique case and uncommon crime, which is why JT even posted it. It’s as bizarre as the stories that he posts about white individuals who commit inexplicable crimes. We read those here, all of the time, yet those stories don’t, somehow, morph into attacks aimed against all whites. How all whites are degenerates. How all whites cannot coexist with others in peace. We recognize those stories for the exceptions and oddities that they are. This story falls into that category, as well. An oddity. Something easily gleaned from the pages of the Enquirer. You are far too smart for not recognizing that very simple fact.

      • You said, “This is a unique case and uncommon crime, which is why JT even posted it.”

        No. For blacks, this is NOT a unique case, nor is it an uncommon crime. Black men are about 6% of the population, and commit about 51% of the murders in the country. That is why smart white people stay out of black neighborhoods, and will not send their children to predominantly black schools.

        You might also want to check out Taleeb Starkes’ book, “The Uncivil War.” You can get a Kindle edition for less than $5.00.

        Also, check out Colin Flaherty’s book, “Don’t Make The Black Kids Angry.”

    • Squeeky

      I love Colin Flaherty’s comments on these issues. And how Anglo, White liberals twist themselves into a pretzel to avoid admitting the obvious.

      I particularly love how upper middle class liberals talk about diversity while living in gated communities and sending their kids to private schools. All the while condemning working class whites for engaging in white flight. Such phoneys and I detest them.

      Being politically correct and receiving invites to the nice cocktail parties do not require anyone to actually dirty their hands. It only requires publicly saying the right things.

      Antonio

      • Yep. The White Liberal Establishment is complete denial of the state of Black America. Toadies and race traitors make it worse. But somehow, even though blacks are supposedly sooo wonderful, the Liberals and their children manage to avoid day to day contact with them.
