"Uh, listen....That guy is a loaded gun" Reporter Says of UHURU Activist Omali Yeshitela aka Joe Waller at Fired Go Davis News Presser in St Pete.

Bay News 9 anchor Al Ruechel apologizes for gaffe during coverage of Goliath Davis press conference.  The voice aired as local cable newschannel Bay News 9 was cutting away from its coverage of an emotional press conference by fired city official Goliath Davis.

The sentence, simple and jarring: "Uh, listen....That guy is a loaded gun."  The anchor's original comments came as the local cable newschannel hurriedly cut away from the final speaker at Davis' press conference, area activist Omali Yeshitela.  Noting Yeshitela's original name, Joe Waller, Ruechel pointed out that he served time in prison for ripping a mural down in St. Petersburg's City Hall.

Bay news 9 reporter Ruechel never told viewers who his comment was referring to, though the channel had last shown Yeshitela speaking when he said it. Officials at Bay News 9 said they would not comment further on Ruechel's error.

Davis' news conference took an uncomfortable turn when he let Omali Yeshitela aka Joe Waller, the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement founder, speak.

"Goliath Davis has fallen because he represented this community," Yeshitela said. "Our community is a good community."

Yeshitela called for "power to the people" until Davis was able to re-take the podium. "If I wasn't fired already," Davis said, "I would be after that."

During Davis' press conference, the fired city administrator criticized the local news media for unfair coverage, mentioning the insults levied against him Tampa radio shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge Clem without actually referring to his name.

ST PETE TIMES, Jan 13, 1988 …“I began a chant, `The police and Klan work hand in hand …. Pigs out of the black community,“’ Joseph Waller, 46-year-old head of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP), said Tuesday.

Raise up Hydra Lacy! Raise up (Cop Killer Hydra Lacy) resistance to colonial occupation! ….On January 24, 2011, Hydra Lacy was killed as police came to his home to take him to join the more than one million African people held captive in U.S. prisons — but not before two St. Petersburg police lay dead and a U.S. marshal wounded. More than 100 police from various state and federal agencies were also held off outside his home for several hours.

On January 30, 2011, at the regular meeting of the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement, African community members and family and friends of Hydra Lacy came together and discussed the incident and subsequent slander launched against Lacy.

Published Mar 4, 2011″Bill Warner has apparently been involved in surveillance of the Uhuru Movement for at least the past three years, but this most recent concentrated campaign of attacks came off the heels of two recent instances of resistance to the regular police occupation of the African community in St. Petersburg, Florida in which three cops have been killed.”


Blackbirdattack 3 hours ago This is ridiculous. Why would you post his wife’s name and their address? This sounds like you are calling for the assassination of Mr. Warner.

Blackbirdattack 3 hours ago All the information Mr. Warner has provided has been taken from already published articles in prominent newspapers. Are you going to target them too?

Michaelscott This is why racism still exists. This group (UHURU) is no better than the KKK. All you fools are doing is promoting hate. As a black American I am embarrassed that an organization exists. I hope the FBI takes you out soon.
