DaQuan and Da Gang: More on Those Mall Shootings in Charlotte, NC: Shooter was a Rapper, Who Committed Suicide by Cop—Get #BlackLivesMatter Here!


July 2014 mug shot of Daquan Antonio Westbrook, aka “Donkey Cartel,” when he was charged with attempted murder, among other counts, for allegedly shooting a 12-year-old boy in 2013. With an April rap CD out, and a baby on the way, perhaps Westbrook thought that getting killed by the police would help his sales, and give him an enduring rep. WEJB/NSU has not been able to determine the disposition, if any, of Westbrook’s 2014 charges.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting that occurred at Northlake Mall on Christmas Eve.

The call of a shooting at the mall, located on Northlake Drive came in at 2:10 p.m. Thursday near the entrance of Journey's shoe store.

Police said evidence gathered at the scene is indicating that two groups of people who had a history of feuding encountered each other inside the mall and got in to an altercation.

Police said the altercation escalated when Daquan Antonio Westbrook fired a gun.
Westbrook,18, was a rapper who performed as "Donkey Cartel."

While working off-duty inside the mall, police Officer Thomas Ferguson heard multiple shots and rushed to the scene where he encountered Westbrook.

According to witnesses, Westbrook turned and pointed his gun at the officer, who fired his service weapon.

Additional officers who were working off-duty in the mall arrived and immediately began rendering aid to Westbrook.

Medics later pronounced Westrbook dead at the scene.

Detectives with the Homicide/ADW Unit are currently interviewing several witnesses and asking anyone with additional information to call Crime Stoppers.

Following standard procedure with any officer-involved shooting, the Internal Affairs Bureau will conduct an investigation to determine whether or not CMPD policies and procedures were adhered to during the course of the incident.

Per department protocol, Ferguson has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the shooting investigation.

Ferguson has been employed with the department since July 31, 1996, and is currently assigned to the North Division.

Emergency crews were responding to the Northlake Mall after an officer-involved shooting on Christmas Eve.

Officers and paramedics were called to the mall off of W.T. Harris Boulevard in north Charlotte just after 2 p.m. and Channel 9 viewers said they could hear shots being fired inside the mall.

Paramedics said they were treating one person with a leg injury and a woman who went into labor. MEDIC transported one person with minor injuries to Novant Huntersville.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said that an argument inside the mall between two people led to the shooting.

CMPD told Channel 9 that officers who were working off-duty at the mall arrived and shot and killed an armed man.

No officers were injured and police said this was not an active shooter situation.
Channel 9 reporter Jason Stoogenke said he saw more than 30 police cruisers at the mall and more were still arriving.

Three separate witnesses told him that two people were involved in a fight inside a shoe store when one pulled a gun and shot the other.

Witnesses said police confronted the gunman and told him to drop his weapon, and when he did not, officers shot that person.

Channel 9 spoke with a football coach who was inside the mall when the shots rang out. He said he heard pops that sounded like gunfire.

He then saw a stampede of people and heard screaming before he was ushered into a back room of a store in the mall.

A Channel 9 employee was shopping at the mall when the shooting happened. Don Afari was inside the Dick's Sporting Goods when he heard the shots. He said people then began running out the doors.

Channel 9 spoke with Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts by phone after the shooting.

“I think we should all be shocked and concerned when there is gun violence in our community,” she said. “I was at Northlake Mall yesterday myself and there are many areas of our community where people pass by every day that they need to be aware of it, that public safety is everyone’s concern.”

The public is being asked to go to the AMC parking lot to be reunited with lost family members.

"I doubt if they can even spell their own names."

They can't. Not even their parents can.

Is there a black ghetto hood rat that isn't a "rapper"? That's what an "art form" that doesn't require any talent does, it spawns legions of practitioners who claim to be "artists" in order to compensate for their utter failure in every other aspect of life. Jerry pdx

Was Deceased Teen Rapper Daquan Antonio Westbrook A Victim of Childhood Abuse & Neglect?

*_When [Officer] Ferguson arrived on the scene, it is reported that Westbrook who was armed and pointed his firearm at the officer..._*

Can I be honest?

Daquan Antonio Westbrook, much like 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar, Tupac, Dwayne Carter and thousands of other depressed teens and adults was a victim of Child Abuse and Neglect.

Am I being too bold suggesting in all likelihood Daquan's mom was a immature, depressed teen or young woman who naively believed she was prepared to take on the 24/7 responsibility and daily challenges of raising a newborn, infant, toddler, child who matures into a fairly happy teen and adult with mostly fond childhood memories.

In May 2015 the NYTimes published an article reporting a significant increase of suicide among "black children."

Frankly, I was not surprised by this news. Though I did become angry when learning about this increase in little kids believing their lives are not worth living. much like the countless times I experienced anger when witnessing children being nurtured by immature Brooklyn, NY teens and women.

I was not surprised because over a period of nearly twelve years I personally witnessed the cycle of Poverty, which I prefer to correctly term as Child Abuse and Neglect, that would cause a young child to believe his or her life was hopeless, not worth living. I've witnessed the emotional damage many irresponsible, "living wild" (Kendrick Lamar's characterization of his mom's lifestyle) neglectful moms subject their young developing kids to during a critical period of their child's human development.

I was angry because VERY FEW responsible Americans are loudly addressing the issue of Poverty, which is a polite term for Childhood Abuse and Neglect.

Frankly, based on my personal view and values, I believe a mom lacking practical skills or means to independently and responsibly provide for her child or children is subjecting them to emotional abuse...because as they mature learning of their situation kids often become resentful for being raised by handouts.

My folks split in my mid-teens. leaving me, sis and mom collecting social services for year or so until mom got back on her feet and sold our home so she could pay back the social service costs we incurred.

When I learned we would be collecting welfare my heart sunk. As far as I knew none of my friends were on welfare and I did not want to become known as "the welfare kid." That would have devastated me.

Listening to child abuse victim Kendrick Lamar speak or reading his interviews, I easily detect in his tone and demeanor that he is unhappy with the poor choices his mom and dad made for him and his sibling's upbringing, which included accepting "free money" from his responsible neighbors.

Sadly, Kendrick is not alone. I've met countless dozens of depressed, angry teens much like him and Tupac, teens forced to cope with an emotionally abusive childhood that deprived them from experiencing the Average Joe American kid childhood it is evident Kendrick Lamar laments he wishes he enjoyed.

Does anyone doubt rapper Daquan was emotionally scarred much like Tupac who raps about depression and suicide, same for Kendrick, Curtis '50 Cents' Jackson, Dwayne 'Lil Wayne' Carter and far too many other young Americans who share their life experiences and pain in public.

Each one of these man performs rap characterizing and demeaning the MATERNAL HALF of our population as less than human ^itches and ^hores unworthy of respect.

Time for change?

Complaining about it and profiting from it as well is no solution to poverty.I m not black,yet grew up in a very low income house--never on welfare though.Both my folks worked.THERE S one difference.My folks stayed together.Explain why black guys would rather impregnate as many women as they can?What s the reason for trying to get it on with white women when they can t handle black women?Why can t they get it through their thick skulls that child support is not optional?That dumping the mother to be puts the kid in poverty.That blaming everyone else doesn t solve anything.I grew up poor--studied,got good grades,got a good job-which i ve had for 30 years.Everyone is responsible for their own fate.When blacks figure that out (I won t hold my breath),they can improve their way of life.Buying rap records about any of the stuff you mention they rap about doesn t solve a thing.It just fattens 50 cents wallet.Wise up.
