1200 N 15th St.jpg
Scipio Aduke Vaughn, a 33-year-old black man from Centralia, Illinois, was killed during a robbery in the Carr Square neighborhood just after midnight on July 15. According to police,  Vaughn and two other men were driving in Vaughn's car when a gray Dodge Charger pulled up next to them in the 1200 block of North 15th Street. Vaughn got out to talk with someone in the Charger, then was shot in the back as he attempted to run from the scene. Vaughn's passengers were robbed by the shooters while still in the car, but were not injured. Vaughn was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police did not have a description of his killers, but the investigation is ongoing.

Rest In Peace Uncle Scipio. Your up there keeping my Daddy company :) I will do whatever it takes to keep my cousins (your daughters) going and guide them through their pain. I walk this Earth everyday not knowing how my father was, at least your daughters can hold onto that last memory. I pray to God my Grandmother doesn't have to go through another burial of her own flesh in blood anytime soon. RIP Daddy (Megell Strayhorn) & Uncle Scipio. You both are truely missed. - Your daughter and niece Zaria Strayhorn.

Guest you are truly to be pitied because you think with your asshole.  Did you ever stop to think that this man was loved by many and was a son, brother and most importantly a father to two beautiful little girls.  Did you know him?  So how can you judge him?   By his skin color?  Then I guess that gives me the right to judge you as a redneck piece of shit prejudice ignorant asshole just by the stupidity of your words.

Dear team. The best thing to do is ignore ignorant comments. He or she only makes hateful comments in the shadows such as this to incite rage. We ignore them in these forums; we take away their power. In the end, if they truly believe the hateful things that they say, your words will not convince them otherwise, but you silence will anger them beyond belief. From one of Scipio's first cousins.

And what's all this shit all the time about needing praise? "Hea gud fawtha". How about how blacks ALWAYS demand to be compensated for doing what Whites do as a matter of their racial instincts but are required to by law anyway such as take care of their kids. When school opens blacks will be given big screen televisions for bringing their kids to school on the first day. Of course Whites are who has to pay for it all. We all know Traneesharanda will show up on the first day at Booker T. Obama Elementary with her pack of simian offspring demanding in that LOUD obnoxious arrogant welfare negro tone to know "warr ma tayvee at n sheeit yall betta git ma tayvee n sheeit dunt be gibbin mee nunna dat buhshit yall raysis honkee muhafucknz n sheeit ma cuzzin Roneesha shee keedz al up n Morgan Freeman Juna Hy an dae got dae muhafuckn tayveez n sheeit". Then when the "tayvee" isn't produced Traneesharanda will call 911on her taxpayer provided Blackberry "yah deez honkee bichass muhafuckaz wunt git ma tayvee n sheeit". The PO LEESE will show and at first arrest the 400 black whale for disorderly conduct. Political correctness will step in an the school administrators will call off the police. Then the school will send an employee down to Walmart to purchase a big screen for Ms. Traneesharanda Washington, load it in her SUV (purchased by the taxpayers) take it to her house and set it up on school employee time so Traneesharanda can watch her shows on BET.

 Sure he can be a great guy sucking off the White man's teet. He didn't have to go off to work every day to earn the money. He just reached in the mailbox and there it was.

I am so disgusted by the comments from Guest. Ignorant people really should just stop and move on. I don't know Scipio but I do know the poor little girl that is now left with out a Daddy. I would hate for her to see these comments. The color of ones skin does not make anyone better than another.  This is not the 60's,  come to reality! We have a black President for goodness sake!   Have a little sympathy for the family!

All I got to say is Scipio was a great guy who always put a smile on my face.  I remember him saying "good morning" in a voice that would make me crack up.  I never remember Scipio making any kind of fun of me....... I am a white guy, and I have no problem calling him my brother.  Face it, we are all related  some how!  With that being said I am sorry to be related to the guest that is posting stupid shit.  I am saddned to lose a friend from our class of 1997...... May you rest in peace brother!

Look this bullshit of reinventing negros as contributors has got to stop. They're useless destroyers that have never contributed a single fucking thing in their entire worthless lives. You losers have swallowed to much jewtube with the jig doctor, lawyer, savvy street smart cop. Guarantee be White and leave something of value on a table with ANY black in the room. Leave the room and return and the negro has pocketed your stuff. They're born thieves and liars and raised as violent racist thugs. The extremely few that try and "cooperate" with society DO NOT make up for the 99.99% percent that can not be domesticated to live amongst other in society.
