75-year-old white man charged with fatally shooting color boy burglar, 13

The neighborhood around his house went from White to Blacks and Hispanics... He stayed his ground...The 13 year old colored boy from next door broke into his house and stole his stuff... as John H. Spooner said in his own words... I TOOK CARE OF WHAT THE POLICE DIDN'T!
Everyone around W. Arrow and S. 20th streets knew John H. Spooner, the older white man who had lived there for decades, much longer than his younger Hispanic and African-American neighbors, and who was always walking his dogs around the block.

And they knew he was upset about a break-in at his house earlier this week, when burglars took some expensive shotguns and other items.

He suspected his new next door neighbor.

According to a criminal complaint filed Friday:

As 13-year-old Darius Simmons was moving a garbage cart from the curb Thursday morning, Spooner, 75, confronted him and demanded the boy give back his stuff and the shotguns.

Darius told him he didn't have his stuff.

The boy's mother chimed in, telling Spooner he should just go back inside. Then suddenly, as the mother watched, Spooner raised a black handgun and shot Darius in the chest from five feet away.

Darius ran around the cor ner and collapsed on Comstock Ave., about 10 feet from a small play area marked "Children's Park." As he ran, Spooner fired a second shot that did not hit the boy.

When police arrived, Spooner was still on the sidewalk, holding the gun. When told to drop the weapon, he placed it on the ground and told police, "Yeah, I shot him."

A second witness, who had been across the street, also told police he saw the shooting.

Spooner is now charged with first degree intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon, and faces life in prison if convicted.

The shooting occurred about 10 a.m.

Earlier that morning, Spooner had told Ald. Bob Donovan, whom he met inside a George Webb's restaurant, that burglars had taken about $3,000 worth of shotguns from his home two days earlier, that he suspected his neighbors and that he was frustrated police had made no arrests.

Donovan said he mostly listened as the men sat at the counter, and Spooner ate a breakfast of two pancakes, eggs and sausage.

He said he has known Spooner for years and knew Spooner had been a crime victim many times in the past and had even installed surveillance cameras on his home's exterior. He said Spooner mentioned that he was lonely since his wife died in 2004 and that he was dying of lung cancer.

"He seemed burdened, truly burdened," Donovan said Thursday.

Cryptic comment

He said Spooner also said something else - that "there are other ways to deal with situations" the police couldn't solve. Donovan said he didn't really take it as more than a passing comment at breakfast.

Was Spooner telegraphing vigilante actions?

"I'm not going to speculate," Donovan said, "but that's what you wonder now."

Attempts to reach Spooner's several adult children were unsuccessful Thursday and Friday.

Darius' family members said Friday that his mother, Patricia Larry, was still not up to talking with reporters, but that they planned a news conference Saturday at their home on W. Arrow St. They had moved in about a month ago.

Roseann St. Aubin, a spokeswoman for Milwaukee Public Schools, said Darius was a sixth-grader at Gaenslen School, 1250 E. Burleigh St., where the district's grief counseling team was dispatched Friday to talk with his classmates and others who may have known him or were disturbed by the news of his death.

Darius was the 10th MPS student to die this school year, St. Aubin said, and the eighth by violent means.

Residents have described Spooner as a good neighbor, mostly friendly and helpful and seen frequently walking his two dogs, Polly and Penny, in the area. But he did express his frustration with mounting crime and harassment by some in the community.

According to court records, police seized 16 guns from Spooner's house in December 2006. According to his handwritten form to reclaim them, the guns were taken because a felon had been a guest at Spooner's house.

The guns included eight rifles, four shotguns and four handguns. A judge ordered them returned to Spooner in April 2007.

At the crime scene Thursday, detectives recovered two .32 caliber shell casings, one from the porch of Darius' house and one from the grass next to it. There were two rounds still in the gun, including one in the chamber with strike mark, suggesting the gun had misfired on an attempted third shot

Faces life in prison, eh? Not a big deal when hes probably gonna punch out for the last time at any given second.

John Spooner shoulda thought this thru and killed dozens more before the cops got there. Go big or go home is what I always say.

Sounds like premeditated murder. I really wanted to sympathize with the old timer, but he murdered that kid based on mere suspicion. Did the kid burglarize him sometime in the past? Maybe. Was the man in fear or great bodily harm or death when he confronted the kid? Don't think so. There isn't a prosecutor in this country that would not, at the very least, take this one to a grand jury. Gramps will likely die before he sees his trial and conviction. At least the guy took out one more drug-dealing future felon collecting Obama's handouts.

I say good job old man. I also say, good riddance you fucking little nigger. You fucked with the wrong old man. The old man should've taken out a couple more niggers while he was at it.

The American Way. Work hard your entire life. Pay your taxes. Provide for your family. Instill values. Look forward to a comfortable retirement. Then the government sends a plague down upon your once quiet and serene neighborhood in the form of hoodrats clutching section 8 vouchers. God Bless this old timer for saying enough is enough. Its a shame more people don't take this attitude.

Young black men are now getting killed by their victims at an alarming rate with this as another learing moment. He probably watched his neighborhood go to shit and all crime with the hamstrung polic not able to do a thing, This should be a message to government. He wil now die completely on the states dime with lung cancer in prison.

I agree with several of the posters here. The old guy should have racked up an impressive nigger body count and eliminated as many of the sub human apes as possible. Elderly and dying of cancer,what is the worst they could do to him? Life in prison? Good job. We need more like him.

He did society a favor and now he's going to get 3 square meals a day, cable tv, access to the prison library, free medical, dental, and vision care, yard time for exercise and fresh air. And life in prison for him is going to be 10 years at most. I say good job and good thinking old man. You know that little turd stole all his shit.

13 years old and in 6th grade. So had the young lad lived, and allowing for a few years of being held back at school, he would've been 21 years old for his senior year of high school...

The article says they're sending counselors to this school? What for, these fuckers had more killed classmates this year than I had in my entire years in school. They've had plenty of practice dealing with grief. They're probably all black, grief is their constant companion.

Shit, niggers don't feel guilt, regret, remorse or other emotions like humans do. Except lust and hate, mostly lust. It's what makes them niggers, not the black skin. 95+% of them little niggers at the skool ain't gonna remember Shitavious next week regardless.

It's just a waste of money and justification for some useless hacks, undoubtedly minorities or liberals, to be on the gubmint payroll.

Very sad to see a hard working White man who lived in the neighborhood for years, paid off his home, retired, and now can't afford to move out as Negroes move in. God bless this man.

No proof that the neighbor had anything to do with the burglary, and no evidence has surfaced to connect the crime to the deceased.

Like the fucking bought and paid for media would report any actual information that conflicts with the narrative....

I suspect that crime went down in the neighborhood after little Shitavious got blasted.

I just love all the hate being directed at a 13 year kid. Really shows what good people we have in this country. Does not take much guts to shoot a kid.
