Birmingham is mourning its latest “senseless” homicide … a 76-year-old landscaper who was gunned down in southwest Birmingham while cutting the grass near the Loveman Village public housing projects.
Note: The lyrics to this music video go something like this, “Loveman Village area, fuck with us, we bury ‘ya. … You niggas talkin’ all dat shit, you just smellin ya ass, I pull that .45 out, yank the trigger and blast.”
For the record, no one was killed by the Birmingham Police Department in the May 1963 demonstrations, which took place exactly 50 years ago this week. Fred Shuttlesworth was only “blasted” by a water cannon which wounded his enormous ego.
