Does anybody recognize the (sarcasm font) upstanding young gentlemen in this photo, BESIDES Javar Smith who appears to be the guy in red, in the center? (End font)
Smith, age 17 but acting more like 13, was the victim of a triple shooting at 2925 Lyndale Ave. N. which was pronounced "shocking" by the mainstream media (MSM).
(Making frantic, overly-dramatic hand gestures)
Ooooooh! It's so SHOCKING!!!!
I guess the MSM doesn't bother to check the freaking Facebook page of a shooting victim for overt signs of gang affiliation before making their...
...tiresome pronouncements of Northside shootings being in any way shocking or unpredictable when these shootings are (HELLOOOOOO!!!!) gang related. That's the job which falls to JNS blog.
Javar (not "Jamar") Smith goes my "Jaymoe Flockka" on Facebook and has therefore aligned himself with the Almighty Black P-Stone gang faction by his overt use of "Moe."
Northsiders well recall it was Julian "Funny Moe" Anderson who was one of the shooters responsible for the death of little Nizzel George, who was sleeping on grandma's couch when a bullet claimed his young life as part of a gang war.
It's unknown if the shooting of Javar Smith could have been retaliation for the incident involving Nizzel George or if that was oh-so-five-shootings-ago.
Anyway, certain things are predictable...like Johnny Northside blog grabbing photos from the Facebook page of individuals involved in shootings (yes, I said "involved," sue me) and then, after I've grabbed every photo I want and written down the information I need (in case I can't get access to the Facebook profile later) I start writing about what was REALLY happening in the life of the victim or shooter.
Who are, I hasten to point out, two peas in a pod, usually, and the only difference is who got the drop upon who.
And that's the case here.
Here is the obligatory photo of MONEY, which isn't even enough to cover a month's utilities for a single household. Geez, you'd think Jaymoe would wait until he had some hundreds before bragging all over Facebook.
Here's a few more "money shots" (did that come out of my mouth?) by Jaymoe.
Wow. What's next? Registering those singles on Www.wheresgeorge.com?
Wow, that's artsy.
I strongly suspect these are some of the same twenties featured in the FIRST photo.
This photo was obviously taken in a mirror and, just in case the message of the shirt didn't come across clearly enough, note that Jaymoe is supplementing the message with his middle finger. This classy statement is, of course, framed by a nondescript gray hoodie.
What am I to make of this photo? Are the snack foods part of the wardrobe?

SYSTEMATICALLY searching each profile for photos and/or commentary on the shooting, Dariann Etc. posted the following photo with the following description:
Note the crutches in background.
By the way, nice bed. I wonder how many people are on the lease versus how many people are sleeping there?
"Treeka," who is "Tyreeka 'Tocute Jefferson on Facebook, wrote the following about the shooting.
Dang I'm sad asl that my babe got shot, sitting here taking care of him bc I ride for my babe and only him we show these niggas what a true relationship is I will always be here at his worse and I'm not going nowhere so y'all can keep trying to break us but it would be a waste of your time I love you babe and I thank God that he had your back today 11.24.12 to the end
Followed by a little heart sign, which is of course the organ an individual would be trying to hit shooting "center mass" if they had the marksmanship skills of a hungry gecko lizard. Yes, that's right, even small and dumb amphibians are better marksmen than Northside gangsters. And this is probably a good thing half the time, but a terrible thing the other half when, for example, little toddlers get hit by bullets.
Oh, BY THE WAY.
Jaymoe put a picture of the same toddler who was wounded in the shooting as BACKGROUND on his Facebook page.
JNS blog will, however, refrain from publishing the photo of a tiny and innocent minor.
Anyway, back to what the Facebook social circle has to say about the shooting.
"Delo Lord" has nothing to say and hasn't had anything to say since July 8, when he posted the following photo.
I am using this photo as conceptual art and re-titling it "Free My Fill In The Blank."
Tycel Rip Kee Evans has nothing to say that I can see, but guess who one of his Facebook friends happens to be? Marly Snapback. That's the Facebook name of Marlon Rashaad Robertson, who is charged in the murder of Kevin Braziel. A week or so ago, I looted Marly Snapback's Facebook photo album and haven't even had a chance to publish all the photos!
Here's one, though, for kicks.
Linking the social group of Javar Smith to a recent murder incident gets us...
Well, nowhere, quite yet. I mean, there are cycles of retaliation, and re-retaliation, and re-re-retaliation, ad infinitum, but where is a cogent historian to explain these Northside Hatfields versus McCoy blood feuds and help us understand who is fighting who and why?
I will have much more to say on THAT little thought at a later date.
Moving on with my snooping...
Maurice RIP Gandnice Jr had the following thought on August 21, via mobile phone.
They say Moe (Member Of Almighty Black P-Stones) why do you keep to yourself so much? I tell them I was born alone and that's how I'll die.
As for Tayloc Iz Savage, if we assume the photo posted 9 hours ago is a recent picture, then Tayloc and friends might already be gearing up for the next round of retribution and retaliation.
Tayloc, who documents his thug life EXTENSIVELY on Facebook, may be part of the frequent social circle of Javar Smith, if this photo below is any indication.
Shooting victim Javar Smith is apparently the guy in red. Note how this is part of the same series of photos which appear on Smith's Facebook page, though the group is in different poses. This is clearly Farview Park in Minneapolis, which is often (and erroneously) called "Fairview" Park by individuals unfamiliar with the Northside.
I use a helpful little mnemonic to remember.
You can climb to the top of the hill in Farview Park and see FAR.
You can see all the way to FAIRVIEW hospital, where you will be listed in FAIR condition if you are shot in the park.
This brings me to the end of exploring Javar's Facebook social circle as composed of the 13 members of his BTL Mafia. I haven't even STARTED on his "friends" list, yet, or published all the photos I have of him throwing gang signs.
But it is late, late and I have to save SOMETHING for tomorrow.
