execution

The Russian Ambassador to Turkey was assassinated inside an art gallery in Ankara, Turkey, on Monday.

Ambassador Andrey Karlov, 62, was shot multiple times in the back by an off-duty policeman, according to the Daily Mail UK.

execution

The gunman (pictured above), later identified as Mevlüt Mert Altintas, 22, shouted "Allahu Akbar (God is Great)" and "We die in Aleppo, you die here!"

Altintas was referring to Russian bombing and air strikes in Aleppo, Syria that killed thousands and displaced thousands more from their homes.

As reporters dived on the floor, Altintas stood over Karlov, shouting in Turkish: "Don't forget Aleppo! Don't forget Syria! Stand back! Stand back! Only death will take me out of here. Anyone who has a role in this oppression will die one by one."

The gunman died in a hail of bullets fired by arriving police officers inside the art gallery.

After the incident, U.S. security officials warned of an "ongoing security incident" outside the U.S. embassy near the art gallery.

Altintas stood behind Karlov and waited patiently while the ambassador spoke to reporters before drawing his weapon and executing the ambassador.

  • puppylove

    All this Allahu Akbar and pledging to ISIS before killing folks sounds like when the police used to shoot someone and theow a baggie of crack next to the body.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    For the good of the entire country I'm hoping someone has had the foresight to shut down trumps twitter account until further notice.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True because Trump owes a lot of money to Russian banks which means he owes it to Putin.

    That's why his a$$ is always complementing that thug, but these white folks are about to lose their a$$es thanks to Trump.

    I hope they enjoy the entertainment.

    Since we have been scattered across the world, isn't it smart to pray for them since we would be praying for our brethren? Bombs hit everyone in their radius, they don't exclude black folk.

    U cant continue to suppress and oppress people for 1000s of years and expect them not to wake up and fight back one day. The inevitable will come. And its coming to the US too. You cant suppress a group of people for 600 years and expect them to continue to turn the other cheek. We better get ready. Cause karma is coming to the US. One way or another.

    The issue will be when we become refugees where are we gonna go. We arent wanted anywhere around the world. Hell not even Africa.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    That's awesome......

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Technically, we are supposed to support Turkey because they are a member of NATO, but trump has stated previously that if he became president he might not support NATO because not everyone carries their weight. Russia and Turkey have been at it for a while now over Syria. It is a mess and can escalate pretty quickly, that is why we need an adult in the room. Oh wait...we're screwed.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Hey There where u been on vaca

  • Buttercup

    Awwww. What's going on with him? The last I heard, he had moved out and was on the up and up. I hope everything is okay.

  • MystyBlu

    Hey Juss! I swear I looked in my notifications and saw the same person upvoting and replying to me so I finally caved. Then here they go with the craziness and I'm forced to be blind to the bullish. Idk what kinda meds they're on but it must wear off by midday. Time to reup.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    This does not answer my question. My question is: Do not pray for any of the places in the Middle East that are the very birthplace of the SAME Bible you are running around here quoting and thumping? Is that what you are saying?

    Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Machaerus, Galilee,
    Jericho etc…you NAME IT. Is this what you are saying? Dont pray for the places that Christianity and the other two Abrahamic religions were founded? Just say to hell with em and start practicing Taoism perhaps?

  • Chardonnai

    That means we are gonna be suppressed forever then. They enemy will kidnap your brother knowing you wont burn down his house cause your brother is in it. Its kind why we havent been able to truly free ourselves. We are worried about the casualties and not the end result. The man doesnt care about casualties, just the end result.

    You just said where the hell we gonna go Mars?

  • 88

    You don't have any understanding of the scriptures you yapping about Israel is a name of a MAN who birthed a nation, it's not about a damn land mass. Jacob name was changed to Israel he had 12 sons and they became the the 12 Tribes Of Israel. Secondly the bible has NOTHING to do with Christianity, that was created by Rome see as usual you don't what you hell you talking about.

  • Wayup!

    I truly believe we're going to be the ones taking over the states so we're not going to have to run anywhere?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I know what the country was named after. Very well aware. It is now a country however, a land mass per your words... that is in the Middle East. That you said not to pray for. Deflection is real. Good day to you idiot.

  • Liz

    My goodness how was your day?Why are you so angry... Who took a sh*t in your apple pie?

  • 88

    Like I though....once again you have been shown you don't what the hell you be talking about. Humble down and maybe next time you can actually learn something.

  • RespectSelf

    Might I add that this is why I like Sandra site. You get the dumb foolish gossip that has no benefit to your life while also getting important news on here too. Balance!

  • Wayup!

    What's going on in Aleppo is tragic but we got a tragedy going on right here in the good old USA
    Not that I don't feel for the babies because God knows the children don't deserve that but children in our neighborhood dying everyday behind senseless violence so yes we as black people know how the citizens of Aleppo feel but my allegiance is to my black people in the USA sorry if this sounds harsh but it's real.?

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    This is just disgusting. What a coward to shoot that elder in his back because you disagree with the state of affairs in your nation. Had he been a man, he would've stood in that man's face and shot him.

    This is going to set a tone for other law enforcement officers who are displeased with whatever is transpiring in their lives to target government officials in copycat killings. Wait for it.

    I don't block them cuz then I be confused with convo threads ??? I usually only have a few minutes at a time to lurk so I'm not tryna see user is blocked all on my screen. Plus it helps me sort the REAL crazies from the wanna bes.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    True, I unblocked many last week. IT's the holidays. Everybody need love, then I FOUND out I had to reblock 1 person. Mentall illness is bad in the winter.

  • Branch Davidian

    I am no Obama fan but I respect his decision to stay out of it. In one of the ballsiest statements he has made, he kept it 100. "The only way to win this thing is if we were to take over Syria with a massive troop deployment. We are not prepared to endure that." That was paraphrased but you get the drift. Either go all the way in or not at all. Kudos to him for making the shitty call. That is what real leaders do. Too bad it came at the end of his Presidency after a great many clusterf*cKs...

  • MystyBlu

    lol I only have Chauncey blocked. Crazy part is my phone didn't have me logged in one day last week and his comments popped up. I was like wtf?! When he get outta jail?! ?? It's some people here with real life issues. I wanna see what they say in case they need to be reported ?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Gunman was a coward and if he really stood for remember Aleppo he would be one of the volunteers pulling people out of the rubble when the bombings are occurring. There is a special place in hell for these types...

  • missmiami305

    Wow ?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Aleppo's citizens do not have the freedom "Our Children" have in this country. Most kids from the USA have a choice that god given choice is taken away from these people and they have to suffer and watch others die because of it. They have no civil liberties at all....but we do whether we are black/white we all have freedom to express ourselves, pull ourselves out of poverty, stop killing each other, bring back and whole black family etc. The residents of Aleppo cant even go outside for a walk without a gunfight.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

  • ?E?E?M?A

    You think so? It's an interesting idea. What do you have to support it?

  • the guest

    People don't get that other countries are taking Muslim terrorism very very very seriously. That's why Muslims want to be in the US.

    They manipulate the principles of diversity, inclusion, and the fear Americans have of being labeled anti-Muslim to access the US under cloaks of duplicity.

    Only the US feels compassion for terrorists who don't care about any US citizens and who don't feel one bit of kinship with black people.

    Black folks think because Arabs are tan and brown that there is kinship, but Arabs identify as white and are more racist then Europeans.

  • the guest

    I'm telling you, the world is evolving to where everything will be done at home. Where home will be safety and sanctuary. Terrorism on US soil will make working from home and online schools the norm.

  • Rob N. Lebron

    He's going into Putins finances not war.

  • Rob N. Lebron

    He's a Turkish man of Syrian descent. Why would he be in Aleppo digging people out of rubble. Y'all either can't read or lack common sense.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    You late homie...anyway so since he is of Turkish descent he cant help Syrian refugees? So your heritage binds your hands from helping others in time of peril? When buildings are falling on children in neighboring countries? Instead of u bashing and being a genealogist how about you say something meaningful. Thats like saying a white man cant help a black man who is getting robbed because he's white. Your conclusion sounds dumb...

  • Rob N. Lebron

    You really can't read. I said SYRIAN descent not Turkish and if you've been following current events, you would know that Syrian refugees can't just waltz back in their country in a time of war which is why the refugees are displaced genius. There are innocent people in Syria who are trying to escape meaning the government won't let them LEAVE. He and his family was probably one of the lucky ones who did leave. That's like a Cuban who escape to Florida and then tries to leave Florida to go back to Cuba to fight Fidel Castro. So instead, of you trying to sound "philosophical" how about learning the facts before spewing nonsense to me about helping others.
