Boxing Legend Héctor “Macho” Camacho Shot in Puerto Rico

Hector Macho Camacho

Former boxing champion Héctor “Macho” Camacho was shot multiple times in Puerto Rico Tuesday night.

Multiple news agencies are reporting that Camacho, 50, was shot in the face and neck as he sat in the passenger seat of a Ford Mustang in the Bayamon region, southwest of the capital of San Juan. The driver of the Ford was killed in the drive by shooting.

Camacho was transported to San Juan Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition. Doctors said the bullets did not enter his brain, but he is not expected to live. Earlier tonight, a rumor circulated online that Camacho had died from his injuries.

Media outlets in Puerto Rico report that police stopped a white van that was seen fleeing the area after the shooting. Police took the occupant of the van into custody.

Camacho won the Jr Lightweight and Lightweight boxing championship belts in the 1980s and 90s. He is best known for knocking out aging Sugar Ray Leonard in 1997, which led to Leonard retiring from boxing. Camacho’s son, Hector Camacho Jr., is also a boxer.

    A reporter in Puerto Rico says the bullets shattered cervical vertebra 5 and 6 in his neck. Even if he lives he will be a quadriplegic at worst. :(

    Possibly but I just prefer to speak positivity into existence. You never know. I know people who should be dead but totally recovered. Hopefully he’ll have the familial support he needs.

    @avanti ur right about that. I see what Ms. Sandy is saying tho, survival might be worse than death as far as quality of life. Keeping him in my prayers. Sounds like a setup hit.

    God does not respect so-called thanksgiving celebrations.

    Thanksgiving stems from edomites ( so-called pilgrims ) who gave thanks to themselves and to their so-called god/christ ( ceasar borgias ) for getting rid of our brethren, the native indians….

    REMEMBER….

    THEY ( EDOMITES ) STOLE THIS LAND
    THEY ( EDOMITES ) STOLE THIS LAND
    THEY ( EDOMITES ) STOLE THIS LAND

    They took the land from GAD, then went and got JUDAH to build it up.
    Now they got ISSACHAR and JUDAH maintaining it…

    ….. to add INSULT upon INJURY they got your dumb-asses celebrating their celebrations.

    WHY ISNT CHICKEN used for so-called thanksgiving?
    .
    .
    .

    Chicken aint used, because the tail of a turkey more closely represents the Crown that the Chiefs of the Native Indians wear/wore…
    .
    .
    .
    DRESSING represents the the body parts of native indian women and children, that were used for edomite sports like baseball.
    .
    .
    .
    CRANBERRY SAUCE represents the obvious….BLOOD!!!!!

    Redeemed777 says:

    AND PLEASE, PLEASE, ….PLEEEEASE, do not be deceived…

    The celebration ” Thanksgiving” is not the same as the biblical word ” thanksgiving ”

    TEHY HAVE TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT MEANINGS

    When you read the word ” thanksgiving ” in the Bible, it is not associated in NO WAY with the edomites celebration of thanksgiving.

    THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW!

    I hope Camacho makes a full recovery! I remember watching him box!

    I never understood why blacks in America celebrate Thanksgiving…..confusing for me! It’s just prove that we are a lost culture and takes whatever is given and told to us…..Being that I have Native American grandparents on both my maternal and paternal side. We never celebrated Thanksgiving….

    Most people still do not know the reason behind thanksgiving….smh

    ‘Thanksgiving’
    actually came into existence in the year 1637. Governor Winthrop of the
    Massachussetts Bay Colony proclaimed this first official day of Thanksgiving
    and feasting to celebrate the return of the colony’s men who had arrived
    safely from what is now Mystic, Connecticut. They had gone there to
    participate in the massacre of over 700 Pequot men, women and children,
    and Mr. Winthrop decided to dedicate an official day of thanksgiving
    complete with a feast to ‘give thanks’ for their great ‘victory’….

    So when you’re all celebrating with your soul food remember what you’re celebrating!

    @KDub….below is a la wiki

    The history of Thanksgiving in Canada can be traced back to the 1578 voyage of Martin Frobisher from England in search of the Northwest Passage. In this, his third, voyage to the Frobisher Bay area of Baffin Island in the present Canadian Territory of Nunavut, it was also the intention to start a small settlement and his fleet of 15 ships were so fitted out with men, materials and provisions for this purpose. However, the loss of one of his ships through contact with ice along with much of the building material was to prevent him from doing so. The expedition was plagued by ice and freak storms which at times had scattered the fleet and on meeting together again at their anchorage in Frobisher Bay, “..Mayster Wolfall, [ Robert Wolfall ] a learned man, appointed by her Majesties Councell to be their minister and preacher, made unto them a godly sermon, exhorting them especially to be thankefull to God for their strange and miraculous deliverance in those so dangerous places,…” . They celebrated Communion and “The celebration of divine mystery was the first sign, scale, and confirmation of Christ’s name, death and passion ever known in all these quarters.”[8]

    Frobisher returned to England in the fall of the year with over a thousand tons of what he thought was precious gold ore which turned out to be totally worthless, and minus “fortie”, or about ten percent of his ships’ compliment “which number is not great, considering how many ships were in the fleet, and how strange fortunes we passed.”

    The exact locations of Frobisher’s activities remained a bit of a mystery until the discoveries of the American explorer Charles Francis Hall in Baffin Island nearly three centuries later in 1861.

    Years later, French settlers, having crossed the ocean and arrived in Canada with explorer Samuel de Champlain, in 1604 onwards also held huge feasts of thanks. They even formed ‘The Order of Good Cheer’ and gladly shared their food with their First Nations neighbours.

    After the Seven Years’ War ended in 1763, with New France handed over to the British, the citizens of Halifax held a special day of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving days were observed beginning in 1799 but did not occur every year.[9] After the American Revolution, American refugees who remained loyal to Great Britain moved from the newly-independent United States and came to Canada. They brought the customs and practices of the American Thanksgiving to Canada, such as the turkey, pumpkin, and squash.[10]

    Lower Canada and Upper Canada observed Thanksgiving on different dates; for example, in 1816 both celebrated Thanksgiving for the termination of the war between France and Great Britain, the former on May 21 and the latter on June 18.[9] In 1838, Lower Canada used Thanksgiving to celebrate the end of the Lower Canada Rebellion.[9] Following the rebellions, the two Canadas were merged into a united Province of Canada, which observed Thanksgiving six times from 1850 to 1865.[9]

    The first Thanksgiving Day after Canadian Confederation was observed as a civic holiday on April 5, 1872, to celebrate the recovery of the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) from a serious illness.[11]

    For many years before it was declared a national holiday in 1879, Thanksgiving was celebrated in either late October or early November. From 1879 onward, Thanksgiving Day has been observed every year, the date initially being a Thursday in November.[12] The date of celebration changed several times until, in 1957, it was officially declared to be the second Monday in October.[11] The theme of the Thanksgiving holiday also changed each year to reflect an important event to be thankful for. In its early years it was for an abundant harvest and occasionally for a special anniversary.[9]

    After World War I, an amendment to the Armistice Day Act established that Armistice Day and Thanksgiving would, starting in 1921, both be celebrated on the Monday of the week in which November 11 occurred.[11] Ten years later, in 1931, the two days became separate holidays, and Armistice Day was renamed Remembrance Day. From 1931 to 1957, the date was set by proclamation, generally falling on the second Monday in October, except for 1935, when it was moved due to a general election.[11][9] In 1957, Parliament fixed Thanksgiving as the second Monday in October.[11]

    ______________________________
    IKR, with Thanksgiving, part of our tradition to ask what we are thankful for. There are plenty of holiday’s that we celebrate that have a different reason why it was created but is celebrated in different ways. Take Christmas. We have the plays and sing the carols, but most children know more about Santa associated with Christmas, and the Easter bunny for Easter and etc.

    People like to find a reason to _itch. Yes my great great granny was full native, and on my fathers side we are west Indian but that isn’t going to stop me from celebrating and being thankful for what I have. If you’re so concerned with the genocide of your people why are you living in this country?

    Anyway…it is sad that on a certain blog (not worth being mentioned by name) they are so thirsty to be the first to reveal this mans passing…the subject title says “(killed?)” almost as if they are waiting on his death.

    DeevaC says:

    @bigbadwolf exactly! Christmas started out as a winter solstice celebration later changed to celebrate the birth of Christ…no issues there in celebrating. Should we not see fireworks on the fourth of July because while it celebrates the birth of a nation is also celebrates the theft of a country from its native people? I mean I know full native Americans who celebrate thanksgiving and the fourth of july…it’s just ridiculous to chastise others for celebrating and being thankful.
