Dickerson: Sixteen Year-Old Son Threatened At Gunpoint

WTHR-TV is reporting on its 5:00 p.m. newscast that 7th District GOP congressional candidate Eric Dickerson alleges that a car pulled up next to his 16-year-old son at a northside neighborhood last night and pointed a gun at him. Dickerson said the gunman told his son that he knew who he was, and that he better watch out. Here's what the report said:

Dickerson also said his 16-year-old son was threatened by a man with a gun last night near 46th and Meridian. Dickerson claims a man pulled up in a white van, pointed a pistol at his son and said, "I know who you are. You better be careful."

WTHR couldn't confirm if a police report had been filed yet.

I'm sure Julia won't go looking for THAT police report. Julia, call off your thugs!

The Ghetto Mafia has been ordered to act between, now and November 7th.

Intimidation and harassment, reign of terror.

It is time for an investigation, before someone gets murdered.

Isn't it amazing that some folk seem to assume that a Black Congresswoman would have thugs? That, dear friends, is a prime example of racism - that somehow African-Americans conduct politics in such a manner.

America has such a long road ahead still ...

Is this the way it's going to be until November?

Ridiculous events, counter-charges, and Wilson and Jocelyn nashing teeth at one another?

Spare me. Fast forward to Election Day, please.

Julia by ten. Not that I want that to happen, but that's what will happen.

Some wise observer on another blog noticed that Eric Dickerson's supporters will not be garnering him too many votes in the African-American community by constant hollering about "Ghetto Mafia" and "Thugs" to describe Ms. Carson's supporters ... on the other hand, the GOP never does too well among Black voters anyways ...

Just sayin' ...

Excuse me Wilson, did your candidate not just use an issue which plays on the absolute worst, negative stereotype of African-American men? Does she think she advances the interests of aspiring, young African-American men in this community by taking one of its most successful and respected members and turning him into a complete wretch. Is she happy with that result? Destroy whoever gets in my way no matter how much harm it does to members of her own community? Take a look at that mugshot her supporters are posting up all over the Internet. She's playing to white people's worst fear of black men and you know it. Think again on that one Wilson.

Yes Wilson. Never mind the fact it's within the Dems interest to keep you down below poverty level in order to keep you dependent upon welfare and the other programs that Dems provide for you people which turns into votes and power for the Dems.

Julia Carson has used goons in the past and present to terrorize her own people. That is why she will be dumped this year.

Anonymous 7:04 - You and Wilson are attempting to silence people with information. That will not happen on these blogs.

If you don't like what is written don't sign on, sign off.

Eric Dickerson will receive a good percentage of black votes.

Once again, you cannot speak for the black community Wilson.

the above GOP AnonyMouse 7:26 comment is puzzling --- I'm retired and live decently above the poverty level.

And by "you people" did you mean a white Anglo-Saxon ex-Protestant like me? or did you in your racist ignorance assume I was Black because I support Congresslady Carson?

It is not the "white man" saying that Ms. Carson has thugs and goons. Unfortunately, for her, she can't use the "race card" in this race. Unlike previous opponents, Marvin Scott, and other white opponents, Dickerson is from the streets. Born and raised. He overcame adversity to become the first African-American in the United States to graduate college with an aviation engineering degree. He was also a Marine Corp Captain and Cobra fighter pilot. He rose through the ranks at GM and Rolls Royce. Became the number one Buick dealer in a 10 state area, four years in a row (2000-2004). Not bad for a rookie dealer who opened in 1999.

If Julia has goons and thugs, it's not because she's black. It's because she has goons and thugs. I'm so sick of Black people in denial. Are we a perfect race? I think no race is perfect and all have seperate issues. Stop being so sensitive that you cant see whats going on.


You can't use the uncle tom lines with Dickerson. They are not credible.

Even after all of this, Dickerson still maintains that he will keep his end of the bargain and run a clean campaign. You must respect that. What if every candidate did that? Run only on their merits. Not a thought in most politicians mind.

Dickerson's son after having a gun pointed at him didnt say to himself, "i think i will assume that this man pointing a gun at me is Julia's thug because she is black". He said it because he knows what happened and all of the grown ups in his life are not stupid.

Has nothing to do with black and white. Has only to do with common sense. If the shoe fits, wear it.

Is the Dickerson Campaign actually blaming Carson supporters of doing this terrorizing of the Dickerson kid? Did the 16yo say to anybody that he thinks it was a Carson activist? When did he say that? Where? To whom?

Yes, the official police report on this incident would indeed interesting to see. Until this incident, I had no idea such a 16yo offspring even existed. I know not his name. Dickerson's website is most opaque about his family life or homes.

Unsubstantiated charges alleging that a political opponent may be behind gun threats are damn serious. I doubt if Eric himself would be so reckless or irresponsible.

Wilson - Congresslady ? - Now that is a stretch.

Yes, Julia's team consists of thugs. They act, look and smell like a ghetto mafia, so they are.

Well, not we've degenerated into really ugly territory.

"Smells" like a ghetto mafia? Pray tell, what is that "smell" ?

Wilson Allen 46201, I can't believe you are in denial. You have supported Julia Carson over a long period of time and you do know very well how she operates.

You allege to know so much about the black community an how they plan to vote, other candidates backgrounds and personal information, but you don't seem to know about the goons and thugs Julia Carson has used to harass and intimidate people in the past and present.

That is hard to believe. You are one of them.
