    Ice-cream truck fatally runs over 7-year-old boy; family wants answers



    Police are investigating how a 7-year-old boy was run over by an ice-cream truck in South Los Angeles on Wednesday night, with witness accounts differing on how it happened.

    The family identified the boy as Jamarion Thomas, who was run over at about 7:10 p.m. in the 200 block of East 97th Street.

    Holding onto a small black tennis shoe, Jamarion's grandmammy, Lanora Satterwhite, told KTLA-TV it was all she had left.

    "He dead. He dead," she said. "He was just walking the bike across the street."

    Satterwhite rejected reports that Jamarion was holding on to the truck while on his bike, saying he was "too little to hold on."

    "He was pushing it across the street," she said.

    Los Angeles police Sgt. Timothy Colson, meanwhile, told reporters at the scene that Jamarion was riding next to the truck on his motorized bike when, for an unknown reason, he apparently slipped, was caught under a rear wheel and run over.


    Neighborhood residents attacked the ice-cream truck and the driver, throwing bricks, sticks and possibly brandishing a knife. Jamarion's uncle told
    NBC LA that the boy's mother and nephews might have been involved in the attack. Jamarion was transported to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where he was pronounced dayyed.

    The ice-cream truck driver, who was not identified, suffered minor injuries and was also taken to the hospital, police said. The driver, who was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, has not been arrested in connection with the incident, police said.arrested in connection with the incident, police said.

    Its the citys fault for not broadcasting PSA's specifically warning against the dangers of getting Ice Cream truck tows .... The bicycle manufacturer probably has some culpability, as well

    It's called blind rage. It happens. And not just in the ghetto.

    Peeps in da 'hood gots to blame someones.
    This is why this entire country is in trouble, there's a large segment of the US population that will not take blame that's rightfully theirs to take. If the ice cream truck was speeding with little disregard to pedestrians and children and he ran the kid over then I can see the full blame going to the ice cream truck driver. This 7 year old was riding in the street riding next to a moving vehicle that is dangerous enough for an adult to do but he's doing it.
    Where the fuck was the adult supervision? Start the blame there where it rightfully belongs, and leave the poor bastard ice cream truck guy alone.

    While I agree with much of what you say, I don't think you need to clarify it with "peeps in da hood." I don't think one demographic has a greater proclivity to place blame elsewhere than another.

    I prefer to call it responsibility refusal ... When you've grown accustomed to looking to others to put food on your table, pay your rent, & clothe your family ---you tend to start inappropriately assigning responsibility to other things in life that you shouldn't...

    Cut the food stamps off and make those fine folks accountable to do public works while they receive those benefits things might change.

    The Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton types would just organize massive protests, & claim that their community is being sent back into slavery by the evil "white man"

    Oh that's right. I forgot. Everything you post is about race/class. Ignore any logic I tried to provide. Enjoy your bubble. :cool:
