Family says the murder of Tennessee man, David Santucci, was a ‘hate crime’

A Tennessee man was walking to his car on a city street late at night on August 12 when he was confronted by three black individuals.

David Santucci, age 27, was shot dead and police have since arrested three people and charged them with first degree murder.

Police say Mario Patterson, Dondre Johnson and Jerrica Norflett admitted to the crime. Thirteen minutes after the shooting police arrested the trio at Foote Homes public housing just over a mile away from the scene of the crime.

Patterson, age 23, and Johnson, age 19, were both charged with first degree murder in the perpetration of robbery. Norfleet, age 23, was charged with accessory after the fact first degree murder.

While there is the theory of a botched robbery, Santucci still had his wallet and his phone, a fact his family and friiends say doesn’t add up. The killers didn’t flee very far, were found close to the incident, hardly the likely behavior of thieves, says friends of the victim.

The Blaze analysis details the “hate crime” theory and how Patterson’s Facebook was full of Trayvon Martin photos and support.

Miguel (De Diago) told TheBlaze that he tracked the alleged shooter, Patterson through his Facebook account — an account now deleted.  He said the page had numerous photos of Trayvon Martin, and he wondered if it’s possible the shooting was a revenge killing for the Zimmerman verdict.

Santucci had just started his new job as a floor nurse at Methodist Hospital.

“He was already touching people’s lives … That he was such a caring person, and that he carried that over not only in his professionalism but his personal life,” said his mother Darlin Fugit to WMCTV.

    THIS STORY IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE “slave mentality” OFTEN DISCUSSED BY black “superstars” LIKE, Cornel West AND Tavis Smiley.

    MEMPHIS IS A black city; AND, ITS CITIZENS CONSIDER Mario Patterson, Dondre Johnson AND Jerrica Norfleet TO BE HEROES, DUE TO THE NEGATIVE IMPACT OF MEMPHIS’ INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN TO RE-VITALIZE THE DOWNTOWN DISTRICT AS A TOURIST ATTRACTION. MANY NEGROES IN MEMPHIS DO NOT OWN A VEHICLE AND USE THE TRANSIT-BUS SYSTEM, WHOSE MAJOR TERMINAL IS LOCATED IN THE TOURIST DISTRICT. IN ADDITION, Shelby County Corrections Center AND MEMPHIS’ MAJOR HOMELESS SHELTER FOR MALES ARE ALSO NEAR THE DISTRICT. AND, MEMPHIS HAS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH PANHANDLERS WHO ARE “FRESH” OUT-OF-JAIL AND/OR STAY AT THE SHELTER.

    MY POINT IS, MANY blacks VIEW David Santucci’s death AS, “This is what happens to white folks who take over the city and treat us like nobodys.”

    • Jack says:

      That’s a pretty racist and narrowminded way to stereotype blacks.

      What a silly rationale! They ride the bus, there are homeless blacks therefore these murderers are rock stars?

      Stop trying paint all blacks at white haters, so aren’t good at it.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

        WELL, “Jack,” LET ME TYPE IT THIS WAY.

        Afrocentrism IS HAVING A “FIELD DAY” BECAUSE THE KENYAN HAS POWER AND RECOGNITION. CITIES WITH black leadership LIKE, MEMPHIS, ARE INEPTLY TRYING TO PLAY A “White Man’s Game” WITH LITTLE SUCCESS. Blacks LIKE, Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton AND Memphis City Council Member Janis Fullilove, ARE PREYING UPON THE IGNORANCE OF poor blacks WHO HAVE BEEN HYPNOTIZED TO BELIEVE THEIR black leaders HAVE MEMPHIS “ON-THE-MOVE.” RECENTLY, WDIA1070-AM [a black radio station] HAD AS ITS GUEST, Mr. Hudson [Head of Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA)]. THE SHOW’S HOST [Council member, Ms. Fullilove, also a lewd disc jockey and seen on the news this week intoxicated at a city-council meeting] ASKED Mr. Hudson ABOUT MATA riders WHO LOST SERVICE. Mr. Hudson SAID THE DOWNTOWN TROLLEY MAKES $5.4 MILLION ANNUALLY AND THE CITY-WIDE BUS SYSTEM HAS A DEFICIT OF $5.4 MILLION. YET, Ms. Fullilove KNEW HER CALLERS COULD NOT PUT “TWO-AND-TWO TOGETHER;” SHE KNOWS THE CITY WANTS TO PUSH NEGROES AWAY FROM THE DOWNTOWN DISTRICT AND FOCUS ON CAUCASIANS WHO VISIT Beale Street, Graceland AND THE TUNICA COUNTY [MISSISSIPPI] CASINOS.

        So, “Jack,” Mr. Santucci’s death IS ABOUT blacks HAVING AN OUTLET TO RELIEVE FRUSTRATION.

        CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        • Jack says:

          “TO RELIEVE FRUSTRATION” – that is an awful thing to say. I wouldn’t know if you are cruel, racist or just stupid, but to discuss the issues in the manner you do is disgusting.

          • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

            BECAUSE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS A “White Man’s Country,” THE PRESIDENT SHOULD ALWAYS BE CAUCASIAN MALE. WHEN THE KENYAN “CAME INTO THE SPOTLIGHT” I ABANDONED blacks AND GAVE ALLEGIANCE TO CAUCASIANS.

            “Jack,” BECAUSE OF YOUR OUTRAGE I ASSUME YOU ARE black OR SYMPATHETIC CAUCASIAN. “Jack,” SINCE SLAVERY TIMES NEGROES LIKE, ME, ARE IN EXISTENCE. IT IS OUR GOAL TO BE HONEST ABOUT THE GIFTS CAUCASIANS HAVE BESTOWED UPON US – NOT, TO DEMEAN THEM. [As I have typed before (on another website) African Negroes traveled to America TOTALLY NUDE in the bottom of transport ships. Since those Africans did not have pouches like, kangaroos, they had no place to keep money. Therefore, EVERYTHING Negroes have in this country was (and for many, STILL IS) given to US by Caucasians. And, I AM NOT ASHAMED!].

  11. Your Name... says:

    Trayvon Martin was shot by a Latino. It is very sad that Mr. Santucci was killed, but to say it was in retaliation for what happened to Mr. Martin is not correct. This crime was committee by three people that wanted to kill aman. Period.
    The media will do anything to continue to fuel hatred among ethnic groups, and we let them.
    My condolences to Mr. Santucci’s family.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

      “Your Name,”

      YOU ARE WRONG.

      CONSERVATIVE TALK-SHOW HOSTS [LIKE, Sean Hannity] PUSHED THE IDEA OF George Zimmerman BEING “White Hispanic.” AND, Afrocentric blacks DEFINITELY CONSIDER Mr. Zimmerman TO BE, “White.”

      “Your Name,” IF YOU TELL A BRUNETTE WITH BROWN EYES AND WHITE SKIN THAT HE/SHE IS NOT “White,” I AM QUITE SURE THAT PERSON WOULD BE UPSET WITH YOU.

      [There is a definite reason why Taco Bell sits on the corner of major intersections in cities across America].

  12. Harrold Finemore says:

    This is a problem that will not go away, no matter how many times Oprah Winfrey claims she is being discriminated against in fine European boutiques.

    Young blacks are unprepared for anything except violence and hatred. These youth do not need Trayvon as an excuse, although they will take anything they can get to feel justified in random acts of murder, assault, and rape.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

      Harrold Finemore,

      Oprah Winfrey’s problems HAVE NO DIRECT LINK TO DISCRIMINATION. Ms. Winfrey IS TRYING TO PERFORM A HYPOCRITICAL “BALANCING ACT” WHICH WILL NEVER SUCCEED. Ms. Winfrey – ON ONE HAND – HAS A DIFFICULT TIME DEALING WITH BEING “TYPECAST” AS A NEGRO ENTERTAINER [i.e., her role in the film, “Color Purple,” etc.]. ON THE OTHER HAND, Ms. Winfrey LOVES TO “STOCK” HER STUDIO AUDIENCES WITH CAUCASIANS AND BESTOW “GIFTS” UPON THEM [like, a new vehicle for each studio-audience member (MAJORITY CAUCASIAN AUDIENCE)].

      BUT THEN, THE BIG “SNAPFOO” HAPPENED – Ms. Winfrey CRITICIZED THE MAJORITY-CAUCASIAN CATTLE-INDUSTRY AND WARNED PEOPLE ABOUT EATING TAINTED BEEF. [Ms. Winfrey knows hamburger-meat in spaghetti (etc.) is a staple in the Negro-family diet – not, pork chops, seafood, quality-cut steak, etc.]. AFTER CAUCASIAN CATTLE-FARMERS “SLAPPED” Ms. Winfrey’s hand, SHE HAS NEVER BEEN THE SAME.

      SO, NOW, Ms. Winfrey SEEKS COMRADERIE WITH NEGROES – i.e., THIS NEW FILM ABOUT THE Negro White House butler – WITH THE HOPE THAT THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN “HER BAD NUMBER.”

      AS AN Uncle Tom, I TYPE, IF Ms.Winfrey WANTS TO BE AN Aunt Thomasina, SHE CAN NOT, “HALF-STEP.”

    These are just some of the hundreds of examples of violence and lawlessness in more than 80 cities around the country. There’s this book I have read, just google “White Girl Bleed a Lot” or this site http://whitegirlbleedalot.com/. It’s an epidemic of black mob violence.
