Man charged with murder in deadly home invasion

If Obama had a son, would he look like Tyrone Woodfork?


After 65 years of marriage. After serving our country. After 90 years of life, Mr. Strait has lost his wife to a murderer. NO ONE in the national media gives a damn. They’re only interested in their wonderful hero, Trayvon Martin.

I suppose if Mr. Strait had shot  Tyrone, the whole country would know about the story. As it is, only Mrs. Strait died, so it’s of no interest to Brian Williams and the rest of the main stream media media, or Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson & the remainder of the “race-baiters”.

A man accused of assaulting an elderly couple this month was formally charged Monday.

Tyrone Woodfork, 20, was charged in Tulsa County District Court with felony first-degree murder, two counts of robbery with a firearm and first-degree burglary.

Bob and Nancy Strait were assaulted March 14 in their home in the 3300 block of East Virgin Street. Nancy Strait died March 15 from injuries related to the assault. Bob Strait is still recovering from multiple injuries.

Woodfork was arrested March 15 after witnesses reported seeing the couple’s stolen 2001 Dodge Neon in the 3500 block of East Fourth Street. He remains in the Tulsa Jail without bond.

    That is tragic and I pray for that family’s strength during this time. However, why oh why must people compare this to the Trayvon Martin case? I haven’t seen these articles stressing black on white violence until this whole Trayvon tragedy happened. Did these people care about black on white crime before? Also, the article states a very crucial fact: “Tyrone Woodfork, 20, was [CHARGED]…” Mr. Zimmerman has not even been put on trial. Why can’t people see that a 17-year-old CHILD was shot and kiled; people seem to forget that fact-people seem to be angry with Trayvon. Now I will agree with one thing: sometimes I can’t stand Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson because it doesn’t seem as if their efforts are sincere-they seem at times to just go on these wild crusades. Not only that, but they seem to want to ignore the evils of black people-ignore the fact that black people, just like everyone else, can be wrong and do wrong. Thanks for the post.

      Ms Marie, you want to know why people don’t seem to care about Trayvon? It’s because he appears to be another Tyrone Woodfork or one in the making, and this seems to be epidemic in young black males! You want decent folk to care, then BE decent folk! You all should listen to one of your own, namely, Bill Cosby! He told you all straight, a long time ago. You reap what you sow. Black Americans need to get it together and as long as you allow the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse (NO JOB) Jackson to stir up trouble and cry wolf you are not going to garner any sympathy from decent people! The average American is SICK TO DEATH of being falsely accused of racism and blacks using the race card at every turn! If black people feel so strongly that racism and racists are the scum of the earth then why do they tolerate a group like the New Black Panthers? It appears that nowadays it’s the blacks that are the real racists! Blacks don’t seem to want equality but special rights and special treatment because of race. You use race as an excuse and let me tell you, it has gotten old and you have worn it plum out!

        “Anonymous” (haha)-I just want to say this first: I’m deeply hurt and offended that you group the entire black population as being all the same-you seem to be saying that all young black males are Tyrone Woodforks-it’s really absurd to say Trayvon Martin is another Tyrone Woodfork. Please direct me to the article which you got that information from; Trayvon killed someone? That isn’t the case at all-it hurts that you stereotype like that. I do agree with Bill Cosby, about how many black people need to do for themselves-it’s not always “whiteys” fault-sometimes some of us need to be held accountable. But I have a question for you and please, I beg of you, answer honestly: do you truly believe that all black people share these ideals which you’ve listed? Do you virtually think ALL of us are the same? If so, that deeply troubles me…

        Ms Marie, I’m sorry that you are so deeply hurt and offended but sometimes it is hard to hear the truth. It is not absurd to make this comparison but the logical thing to do. Both young black males, both committing acts of violence. In the face of this epidemic of young violent black males what makes it absurd? The only difference in the two cases is the outcome of who lost their life. Trayvon had not killed Zimmerman but had beaten him badly enough that the man feared for his life. Listen, I grew up in urban Detroit and am married to a minority woman. I have experienced first hand the racism of blacks and know well what is going on. I also know that not all blacks agree with Sharpton and Jackson but, where is the outcry? Where is the black community outcry against the New Black Panthers? Where is your outcry? The silence is deafening and very telling.
        My words are reality, they are where the rubber meets the road. The black community at large has blown it. The manipulation of the race card is alive and well. Racial tension in this country is going to continue to escalate as long as the Sharptons of the world are tolerated by black people and as long as young black males continue to rob, murder, victimize and plunder their own communities and the communities of others. It is very sad but it is also very true. I am sorry about the state of our nation and the tension between peoples. I wish it weren’t so and pray that it changes. Please do not be offended if I see things differently than you do. I am sure that you are a very nice person.

    Black on white crime is epidemic and rising yearly yet not a single member of the media pays attention. Suggest readers go to and check out the great research published on the true state of race relations in the USA. You will be amazed at the cover-up.
