4 Shot, 1 Killed After Black Gunman Fires At Passing Cars On Tennessee Highway, Targeting Police, Whites

Tyler Durden's picture

The worst case scenario we predicted yesterday, hours before the shocking events in Dallas had taken place, is now in play and the genie unleashed by the recent incidents of police violence - whether unprovoked or justified -  and popularized by an aggressive speech by none other than the president in which he collectivized the failings of the US police force as one organic whole, is now officially out of the bottle.

Recall we said that "we believe that the current wave of anti-police sentiment will sublimate into a surge in social violence across the US, especially among blacks who target police, and sadly culminate with deadly consequences for all involved." While it is not clear if Obama's speech yesterday was the spark that accelerated precisely this sentiment, but after yesterday's mass killing of police officers in Dallas and various incidents across the US today, we are convinced that what is on the surface a surge in class/race/occupation tensions between segments of the black community and segments of the police force (because it clearly does not involve everyone in the those two respective groups), is about to escalate into a full blown war.

Case in point, the latest incident in what increasinly more are calling an all out race war was reported moments ago by AP who said that 37-year-old Lakeem Keon Scott, who is black, opened fire indiscriminately at passing cars and police on a Tennessee highway. He later told investigators he was angry about police violence against African-Americans. One woman died and three others, including one police officer, were injured in the rampage.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a news release that initial conversations with the suspect, 37-year-old Lakeem Keon Scott, revealed he was “troubled by recent incidents involving African-Americans and law enforcement officers in other parts of the country.”

As AP adds, Scott was wounded in the shootout with police, remains hospitalized and has not yet been charged. All those shot were white, police confirmed.

Scott was shot by police after opening fire about 2:20 a.m. Thursday on Volunteer Highway in Bristol, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a press release. Scott was seriously wounded, but was in stable condition Friday afternoon, police said.

The announcement came just hours after 12 officers were shot at a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas by a man who police say declared he was angry about police shootings of black men and wanted to exterminate whites. Five of the officers died.

Lakeem Scott was armed with two weapons, an “automatic-style rifle” and a pistol, and had a large amount of ammunition during the Thursday morning incident, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a press release

The shooting spree in Tennessee began around 2:20 a.m. Thursday. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation alleges Scott — armed with an assault rifle, a pistol and a large amount of ammunition — fired shots through the window of the Days Inn on Volunteer Parkway.

shooting on Volunteer Parkway early Thursday morning in Tennessee

The front desk clerk, Deborah Watts, was struck and injured. Days Inn owner Kiran Patel said he awoke to the sound of gunfire. His wife called the front desk to see what happened, Watts answered and said she'd been shot. She remains in the hospital in serious but stable condition.

Investigators said Scott then “indiscriminately fired at several vehicles driving on Volunteer Parkway.”

He was confronted by officers from the Bristol Police Department. “During that exchange, the investigation shows Scott fired at the three responding officers,” the TBI said. “After which the officers returned fire, striking Scott.” He was taken to the Bristol Regional Medical Center, where he remained in serious, but stable, condition on Friday, police said.

Newspaper carrier Jennifer Rooney, a 44-year-old mother of two, was on her way to pick up papers for the morning delivery when a bullet struck her. The Bristol Herald-Courier reported that her car careened over a median and crashed through a chain link fence.

David Whitman Davis was also injured by flying glass from the gunfire, the TBI said.

Three officers with the Bristol Tennessee Police Department arrived and confronted Scott, who fired on them. Office Matthew Cousins was hit in the leg. He was treated for superficial injuries and released.

Scott was stuck by the officers returning fire. He remains in the hospital in serious but stable condition. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said the investigation is ongoing as they work to understand the shooter's motive.

Unfortunately, this is only the beginning.

We must realize that our party's most powerful weapon is racial tensions. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races that for centuries they have been oppressed by whites, we can mold them to the program of the Communist Party. In America we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against the whites, we will endeavor to instill in the whites a guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to rise in prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause.

Obama's sons are bored.  Just wait until their EBT cards no longer work and see what happens.

Depending on where one travels, some will have to start wearing blackface and an afro wig while driving.

No, no hate crimes here, right Obama?  Right Lynch?  Only white males can commit hate crimes.

Just call it "Game On" officially throughout the US from the highest level and we'll see who wins ...

But we'er playing right into clinton's hand.  All these bullets flying but non aimed at the right target.

Yep, if there is not a swift end to this thru FBI and undercover throughout cities, you know its an intentional "Stirrup/chaos" for benefit.

They better watch it if true, they might start something thats get ended in away they didnt intend.

What the hell is going on, I was up at 5 30am eastern and the Dallas story as reported by the press was 3 shooters that triangulated on the cops from the roof tops in a highly coordinated ambush.  Now it's one shooter, what happened to the 2 other shooters that were in custody?  It was reported they were "being uncooperative". This stinks of cover up, why who knows but they are actively changing the narrative. 

As far as this story goes it seems pretty clear his motivation was "kill whitey ".

But the other interesting thing is, Dallas police had a...BOMB?! They-strapped-a-bomb-onto-a-robot..to kill the guy who would look like Obama's son...if he had one.

A bomb.

Now think about that for a sec...I mean how do the protocols of that even work? 

DPD Brown: "Yeah hi, General Jack Ripper? This is Chief Brown of the Dallas Police and we've got an idea on how to kill this guy in the parking garage. We need a bomb to strap onto our bomb defusing robot.

General Ripper: "No prob! How many megatons?" Hydrogn or..."

DPD Brown: "No no no. Just a regular anti-personel bomb. We don't want to take out the whole building just him and a few cars he's using to barricade himself with."

General Ripper: "Oh hell (sound of rummaging & papers shuffling) here. I've got one of those right here in my desk drawer! You want it on a sidewinder or..."

DPD Brown: (Sigh) "No, we'll send someone over."

I assumed they used a explosive they would have to breach a door. But again I assumed that. With Hillary Clinton getting away with a high crime anything is possible.

Oh yeah...but I'm still lmao! about "a bomb"...in the "custody" of...DPD.

It must be like when they pull someone over and find a lot of cash (or property) and keep it. Its gotta be something nefarious and no doubt...criminal!!! Having that much cash...ya know..."legal tender".

In this case, I guess (in order to get...a bomb) Robbie the Robot diffused one (or two or...?) at some point in the past and the old Bomb Squad dutifully reported it "blown up safely" to da press and ole Sarge just stuck it on a shelf somewhere down at headquarters...just...in...case.

Or...they got it from...da feds.

I wonder if Obama (or #BlackLivesMatter) knows about all this ;-)

Interesting how there's been no more mention of the other two Dallas shooters or other suspects. I guess they are framing the lone wolf narrative, Harvey Oswald style.

MagicHandPuppet's picture

Also it's interesting that they've conditioned the public with a single event to accept a Johnny 5 style bombing death of a Suspect. Municipal drone killings/assassinations will be here sooner than I anticipated.

The next thing we'll see from local PD is air strikes and artillery. Or how about chemical weapons like nerve gas? I keep saying it but I think it's true...USSA is right, smack, on the edge of being an *overt* totalitarian state.


The farce we just witnessed with Comey was really something...I don't know why TPTB bother with charades like that. They'd be better off to just ignore the matter entirely. Unless its a divide and conquer tactic, and I think it is...like these crazy shooting stories we're supposed to believe.

nmewn's picture

The double standards and the in-your-face snobbery is what gets me...and...your divide & conquer observation certainly has merit and is really at the heart of it.

Here we have black guys, killing white guys (openly admitting that's what they're doing) and I would be willing to place my house down on a bet that the progs don't call for the banning of the group called Black Lives Matter. They were all about banning a flag they said symbolized some sort of raaayzism after Dylann Roof shot the completely innocent in a church weren't they...where are they now? 

What does our Dear Leader, post-raaayzist President have to say about that not-so-nuanced aspect of it?...crickets.

What does our blind Lady Justice Loretta Lynch have to say?...if she's said anything, it's apparently been (redacted).

What about the Southern Poverty Law Center?...yeah, uh huh.

The thing is, its ALWAYS been Us against Them and the sooner we (people of all color & class) understand that, the sooner it can "change" as they are the Masters of Manipulation, they would prefer mass chaos in the street so they could just say "Oh, you want martial law? Well, ok then, we will restore order for you." when they are the cocksuckers who caused the chaos in the first place!

I'm to the point where I'm PRAYING FOR chaos, a complete societal meltdown...just to prove what tyrannical, authoritarian pricks they are in far off DC...then everyone will see what a centralized government is and never want it again.

"One hundred fifty people were shot last night by security forces for violating the dusk to dawn curfew in search of bread & water for their starving families. The general public is again warned to stay off the streets during the night and line up for their .gov bread & water rations only in the daylight hours. Be good citizens and stay tuned to this channel for further instructions, that is all." Public Announcement XII.

Yes indeed...and there it is...right at the heart of it...two classes of people ;-)

The bomb was probably just a claymore.  I'll bet they have a bunch of them.  You know...for crowd control.

No shit, cousin.
Once we get through all the standard bullshit associated with these stunts, I really think we need to revisit the robot-bomb-candygram tact.
I want some policy guidance on that. As muddy as this shit gets, I still 'sense' the glaringly extra judicial when I see it.

MOVE bombing, Philly. Bombed them from aircraft, murdered and maimed, and burned down a few dozen houses. It's all good.

There was also the Tulsa riots and aerial bombing of a black neighborhood in 1921.  Probably the first aerial bombing in the US.

Scores of dead, hundreds wounded, and 6000 blacks taken into custody. 

Amazing history that I'll bet none of you heard in school.

IP, the bigger point that you seem to be missing is that they need to get rid of the Patsy. Three shooters, elevated positions, triangulation of fire ... and then it becomes lone-gunman who got vaporized. WTF?

It's not a lone gunman. They aren't saying that.

I was watching a live feed last night and they said they'd taken a suspect into custody and showed the back of him he was wearing army uniform and bullet proof vest and what looked like a motorcycle helmet.  They also said they were interogating a woman but I didn't see her.

It appears we have a glitch in the matrix. I think this is a local CBS station in Virginia citing "CNN Wire".

5 officers dead after ‘sniper’ shooting at Dallas protest, 3 in custody



Here’s what we know:

— A total of 10 police officers were shot during the protests, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said. An 11th was shot during an exchange of gunfire with one of the suspects, authorities said.

— Brown said it’s unclear how many suspects were involved, adding that police had cornered one suspect in a commercial garage.

— Police have three suspects in custody, Brown said.

— A standoff in a parking garage reportedly ended with a fourth suspect fatally shooting himself

— One suspect told negotiators more officers are going to be hurt, and added that there are bombs placed in downtown Dallas.

— Two of the shooters were snipers, who shot from an “elevated position” and fired on officers “ambush-style,” he said.

And the ONLY bomb that went off in Dallas...

...was the one planted by...wait for it...da pole-leeeze!!!

Now, dats some real top notch investigative gum-shoe work right there, Mr. Comey & Mzzz. Lynch.

You likey? ;-)

At this point I don't believe any of it. It reminds me of the V for Vendetta movie where the sheeple are told the Old Bailey Building was blown up on purpose with a firecracker display. 


Just two weeks after Orlando...the bullshit stories are Too Big To Believe. That's why I think the sTate dEpt says they're gonna investigate Hill'rey again...they're losing it and people are getting angry. They want us to think anger against them is confined to dindu cop haters. It's bigger than that.

I'm almost phøbia free now thanks to the last eight years.  My "irrational fear" of many things, which I'm sure was all in my messed-up mind, is now turning to "real fear." Thanks, and a big shout out to our local community doctor, Dr. Øbamy!

Bombs are now standard weapons issued to Police Forces and are deployed by Robot to suspects..


I wonder who authorized that?


What good are your guns against bombs?

My robot can out bomb your robot.

And if all else fails...ill shoot the robot and the guy holding the joystick.
So, there's that.
