More From Yesterdays News

I was hoping that there would be a bit more news reported on yesterdays Brady Bunch/Rainbow Coalition anti gun rally, but there wasn't. I guess even our local news rags saw it for the non event that it was.

James Hohmann, a reporter for the Dallas Morning News penned the articles for both the DMN and WFAA Channel 8 News. Mr. Hohmann interviewed one individual from our side of the debate, took pictures of her, and of the rest of us, but failed to mention anything we had to say in either article. Both articles did however mention this man:


Lamont Levels

Let me introduce you to Lamont Levels. Authorized Journalist James Hohmann tells his story:

Among the Dallas marchers was Lamont Levels, 30, who wears a patch after a shooting blinded him in one eye. He marched with his wife past the place where he was shot six years ago.

"If we don't help these kids, they're going to turn to guns," he said. "When young people hear gunshots in their neighborhoods, it doesn't bother them [anymore]."
Here is Mr. Levels, a genuine "victim of gun violence", marching with the Brady Bunch and demanding that our state and federal legislatures enact more gun control laws. He makes a pretty good poster child for the cause, doesn't he?

Well let us see, I wonder what all was involved in the incident where Mr. Levels was shot.

From CBS 11:

February 17th, 2007.


Lamont Levels Earlier This Year

A bit of a different look wouldn't you say. This is an image of Mr. Levels relating his story to kids, hoping to keep them out of gangs. Here is the pertinent portion of the article:

"I started a gang when I was 12 years old," Levels tells the group. "I started a gang called 415 Blood Gang in Southeast Dallas out of the Frazier Court projects."

Levels' story is chilling and his audience is young. With help, he shows the group the clothing he wore the day he was shot.

"That bullet hole, that is blood, all that dark spots, that's blood. I was shot in the temple, I was also shot in my hand," he explains.

Levels says he was shot during a power struggle in 2001.

"On Jan.2, my own friend shot me in the head with a 9 millimeter handgun and it blinded me for the rest of the my life," he tells the attendees who were not all there voluntarily.
Lamont Levels may have changed his ways. Lamont Levels may be actually helping kids stay out of the gangs and stay in school. For that he should be applauded. But for the Brady Bunch to parade him out in front of the cameras, with an unnecessary and poorly applied eye patch, wailing about evil guns, is a bunch of crap. Lamont knows that gang bangers do not obey the law. Lamont knows that the guns in the hands of the gangs were not legally purchased through an ffl, but either stolen or purchased on the black market. Lamont knows that no amount of gun control laws will control the criminals who use guns. And you know what? The Brady's do to.

Thanks to Hyunchback for doing the leg work on this one.

Just out of curiosity, what the hell kind of PUNK gun did he get shot in the eye with and LIVE to tell it?? A BB gun??

Mom always told us we were gonna put an eye out with those things...

Kevin said...

Apparently a 9mm Europellet.

Lamont is a punk for going along with that dishonest theater. James Hohmann is a bigger punk, what a dishonest and lazy piece of "journalism". The anti's? Well, I don't expect anything intelligent from them. Hell, I expect more from the gangbanger.

Hyunchback said...

It was a 9 mm, to the head.

ANY handgun round with a street record has living examples of someone who took a round to the head and is still around to testify.

Not so many survivors of center-fire rifle rounds to the head.

I don't know why he was wearing the band-aid in the photo op when he didn't have one in the February photos.

I find it ironic that a former gang-member wants more gun control laws. Kind of like rapist calling for better treatment in prison.

Just a little more information on Mr. Lamont. What qualifies him to be such a great spokes person to young children when he legally has about 7-9 children for which he doesn't care for any. So before you guys go picking these poor "victims" you should check these people out because a lot of the times they are actually vicitimizing people. Lamont was shot and no longer in a gang however approximately 3 yrs ago he got a gang relatd tattoo in him.. Now why would a reformed gun violence victim do such a thing????? Also why would he be listed for jail visitation and have ties with a convicted drug dealer and go a visit with him as well as "take care of his buisness while he is gone????"Wow gun violence has done a lot to change this young man. But maybe not enough to have him credited as a victim. And James maybe you should see his last club photo doesn't look like he needed any bandages to me. You should however bandage him up just not his eyes it should be his soul because he is going to burn in hell for the games that he is playing speaking---speaking out against his daily life---talk about victims anyone feeling sorry for him is the true victim ....

Oh I just have one question for you now Miss Jazz how christian are the two of you with your use of profanity and his lack of christian life values that he displays everyday. You obviously are just another person Buckwheat has mislead... Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and all things will be added unto you...seek the Lord honestly and with a genuine heart and don't be so quick to throw his name out in the same sentence with misspelled profanity...

AS FAR AS I AM CONCERN, LAMONT MANDEL LEVELS SNEED(BUCKWHEAT) HAS MORE KIDS THAN HE CAN COUNT, AROUND 12. HE IS A DEAD BEAT DAD AND DOESN'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO STAND UP IN FRONT OF ANY SCHOOL, ANY COMMUNITY, OR ON TELEVISION IN BEHALF OF AN DECEASED OFFICER, BECAUSE HE ISN'T THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE JOB. HE WAS NOT SHOT IN A GANG VIOLENCE OFFENSE, HE WAS SHOT BY ONE OF HIS FRIENDS THAT HE THOUGHT WAS DOWN FOR HIM. THEY ROBBED A DRUG HOUSE AND GOT OVER $100 G'S AND DIDN'T WON'T TO SHARE THE MONEY WITH HIM, SO THEY TURNED THE GUN ON HIM AND SHOT HIM AND LEFT HIM FOR DEAD.HOW DO I KNOW THIS? I AM THE MOTHER OF ONE OF THE MANY KIDS THAT HE HAVE AND HE DOESN'T CLAIM MY CHILD, AND THIS IS THE MAN THAT WE HAVE SPEAKING IN FRONT OF OUR KIDS TRYING TO COMPOSE A POSITIVE IMAGE. WHAT THE HELL ARE YALL THINKING? YALL WOULD OF DID BETTER WITH A RECOVERING DRUG ADDICT. HE IS A WOMANIZER, HE USES WOMEN FOR THEIR SYMPATHY, AND I AM ONE WHOSE NOT GONNA GIVE IT TO HIM. AS OF THIS VERY MOMENT, HE'S WANTED FOR CHILD SUPPORT AND A WARRNT IS FOR HIS ARREST, WITH THE CONNECTIONS THAT HE HAS WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT HE IS GETTING AWAY WITH NOT PAYING CHILD SUPPORT AND A FREE TICKET OUT OF JAIL. STOP FEELING SORRY AND MAKING EXCUSES FOR A MAN THAT'S STILL SELLING DRUGS IN OUR COMMUNITY, AROUND OUR CHILDREN. HE OBVIOUSLY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN BECAUSE HE DON'T CARE ABOUT HIS OWN.IS IT'S BECAUSE HE'S BLIND? SO WHAT! HE STILL HAVE ATLEAST 3 OF HIS 5 SENSES!!! MS. JAZZ, STOP THE MADNESS. YOU AIN'T NO BETTER THAN HIM SWEETIE. THE BOTH OF YOU ARE DIRTY AND HAVE HELL WRITTEN ALL OVER YALL BODIES. I AM SICK OF YOU MAKING EXCUSES FOR HIM. OH WAIT, YALL IN THIS SHIT TOGETHER. WHAT TYPE OF WOMAN ARE YOU TO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHO YOUR HUSBAND KIDS ARE? OR BETTER YET, WHAT KIND OF WOMAN ARE YOU TO NOT WANT HIM TO DEAL WITH HIS KIDS? A WORD OF ADVICE BITCH, YOU SHOULDN'T BE ON HERE CALLING NO BODY NO HATER AND TRYING TO GO BAD ON NOBODY. YOU SHOULD BE TRYING TO SAY THIS IS HIS PASS AND HE HAS LEARN FROM HIS MISTAKES AND EVERYONE IS INTITLED TO A CHANGE; HE'S NOT WHAT PEOPLE MAKE HIM TO BE ANYMORE... YOU CAN'T DO THAT BECAUSE HE'S THE MISTAKE AND HE WILL NEVER CHANGE. NEVER MIND WHO THIS IS JUST KNOW THAT I DON'T HAVE ANY SKELETONS IN MY CLOSET HE DO .. JUST CALL ME MS. BITCH COMING TO THEATERS NEAR YOU BECAUSE I'M SET OUT TO RUIN HIS LIFE THE SAME WAY HE DID MINE...

I too agree with you anonymous... I was a victim of his antics. Womanizer...oh that is not even half of it. He also had a child on the way by me. I was there for him through it all not knowing the for real deal. When you aren't from his world it is hard to know the true Buckwheat. I was there for him through it all and provided him assistance and care. He will use you until he can't use you anymore. This man is supposed to be stopping gang violence, but everyone is misunderstanding. What you see is not really what you are getting. I do understand him being blind, but using people is no exception. He will rob you of your heart, finances, and anything else. He wants you to feel sorry for him. How can you have so many children and not take care of them? Then for Ms. Jazz to be on here saying stay off his site...sweetie tell him to stay off other women. I understand a woman backing her so called man, but why even get mad with anyone for downing him because everybody seems to have had a piece of your man. Blind or not he is still a man.
A man will be a man and Buckwheat does/did that. I remember Ms Jazz trying to set it off over him and he is the one running around here lying and then sicking you on the females or better yet lieing saying he has no relation with them. If you ever want to know who I am check his closet, belly, and heart and you will see... I am the one who did what she could and was there for him through thick and thin. And to anonymous...what is done in the dark will eventually come to the light so all of his hiding behind the cops will stop too. They will see that he is still the same person. This can only be hidden for so long.
