A 24-year-old mother of a 3-year-old boy, Jessica Doty Whitaker, was shot and killed after walking away from a Black Lives Matter mob in Indianapolis. According to her fiance, Jose Ramirez, the argument with the protesters was allegedly over Jessica, or someone in their group telling them, “All Lives Matter.” Ramirez claims the argument between them and the BLM protesters ended amicably, and that the couple was walking away when she was shot to death.
Local Fox 59 reports – An Indianapolis mother was shot and killed along the canal early Sunday.
According to the victim’s family, the shooting started over some racially charged language.
The victim, Jessica Doty Whitaker, leaves behind a little boy.
“She shouldn’t have lost her life. She’s got a 3-year-old son she loved dearly,” said her fiance Jose Ramirez.
According to Ramirez, he and the victim and two other people were hanging out along the canal when someone in their group used a slang version of the N-word.
That word prompted a confrontation by a group of strangers.
During a brief argument, Ramirez claims the suspect’s group shouted Black Lives Matter and either Whitaker or someone in her group replied that All Lives Matter.
Eventually, the two sides separated because they realized they were both armed. The groups then fist-bumped and walked away from each other.
However, minutes later Ramirez claims the killer opened fire from a nearby bridge and ran away.
“It was squashed and they went up the hill and left we thought, but they were sitting on St. Clair waiting for us to come under the bridge and that’s when she got shot,” said the victim’s fiancé Jose Ramirez.
Jose admits he returned fire, but didn’t hit anyone. He says explaining to Jessica’s son Greyson that he’ll never see his mom again has been the hardest part for the family.
“It’s hard to tell him his mom is in heaven and if you want to talk to her you have to look up and say, ‘I love you mom,’” said Ramirez.
Cassandra Fairbanks of The Gateway Pundit reached out to the family of Jessica Doty-Whitaker and reported- Unlike Charlottesville or any violence from the right, this killing was reported so quietly that barely anyone even noticed.
Her grandfather posted on Facebook that “multiple black assailants” shot her in the head.
“Why isn’t anybody outraged about this?” he asked in the post. “Is it that BLM was involved or that it was white young adults that [were] the victims?”
Whitaker leaves behind a three-year-old son.
She shouldn’t have lost her life. She’s got a 3-year-old son she loved dearly,” said Ramirez.
Her father, Robert Doty, told the Gateway Pundit that the BLM supporters had walked by her and her fiance and said “Black Lives Matter,” to which Jessica responded that “All Lives Matter.”
The BLM activists had allegedly pulled out weapons during the argument, which prompted Ramirez to do the same. This lead to them backing off, but not for long.
“An argument started and guns came out, but they worked things out. Unfortunately, they didn’t drop it and waited for them to walk back through and she was shot in the head,” Doty told TGP.
Her sister Jennifer told TGP that they were walking the canal with friends after an “awesome” Fourth of July celebration.
“It’s heartwrenching to watch my mother explain to my three-year-old nephew that mommy is an angel in heaven,” Jennifer told TGP, adding “and him asking when we can go get her and bring her back?”
Jennifer told TGP that her sister was a Certified Nursing Assistant doing home health care and getting ready to go back to school to become a registered nurse.
“Her son was her world, she had the kindest heart and was in no way racist towards anyone,” Jennifer told TGP.
