Black Panthers Call For Store Clerk’s Arrest After Thug Is Shot in Stomach (Video)

A Houston Black Panther organization called for the arrest of a store clerk after a confrontation that left one man shot in the stomach. The Black Panthers led a march yesterday.
Street thug Alexander Calloway was shot after assaulting the clerk at 3:30 in the morning.

The protesters claimed Calloway was an innocent young father.
KHOU reported:

As family members of a man who was shot by a Valero clerk in southeast Houston called for the store clerk’s arrest, the store owner released surveillance video.

Alexander Calloway, 21, and his two cousins were trying to enter the gas station on Martin Luther King and Belarbor around 3:30 a.m., but the store was locked.

The young men got into an argument with the clerk, who unlocked his door and came outside, police said.

Someone punched the clerk in the face and the clerk pulled out his gun and shot Calloway in the stomach, according to HPD.

Calloway’s cousins rushed him to a fire station on Cullen at Selinsky, and paramedics transported him to Ben Taub Hospital in critical condition.

On Tuesday, the store owner played the surveillance video for KHOU 11 News.

It showed the store clerk being punched by Calloway before the clerk opened fire.

Community members marched in front of the store and demanded justice. Calloway’s father blamed the clerk for what happened to his son.

    The clerk should be getting a reward for removing a thug from the streets.

    So according to thug’s dad, the clerk didn’t have to shoot him? After the thug attacked the clerk?

    Both the thug and his dad belong in jail. As well as those protesting.

  • Remco Kimber

    On the other side of the glass door is,
    a black,
    who is belligerent,
    and it’s 3 in the morning.

    Why did he unlock that door?

    Why did he unlock that door? There comes a time in every man’s life where he takes a stand, when he won’t, just. can’t. take. it. anymore. and acts.

  • Mad Hatter

    He should get employee of the year. Also, if you’re ever physically assaulted like that, learn to empty the chamber since he may be carrying, and could easily shoot you.

  • Eddie Baby

    I guess it’s hard to block a punch when you have a gun in your hand. Of course, you should not get in a fist fight with somebody holding a gun in his had, so it all works out.

  • Ragspierre

    The clerk will very likely have to face a jury. He did a lot wrong, starting with opening the door. When you have the right to use deadly force, you have the responsibility to use it according to the law.

  • Rachelle

    When is somebody in the legal system going to arrest a Black Panther for putting out a reward for killing or kidnapping George Zimmerman?

    I thought it was supposed to be illegal to pay someone to kill another person.

    Apparently not if you are black.

    These people may end up with the total destruction of race relations in America.

  • Robert

    Maybe the father should aks why his son is at the locked door of a business at 3:30 in the morning arguing with the clerk.

    Clerk shouldn’t have opened the door. That said, THIS WON’T HAPPEN AGAIN? sorry, LOL! Really?

    there was a time in which a stunt like this may have worked for Al
    Sharpton and his manipulative thugs, however, unless these well
    known criminals have a GUN to dl Holders head, it shouldn’t work
    for “his people”.. but, up is down, good is evil, etc, these days as
    well.. and to be frank, “we the people” seem to do little more than
    just sit and complain about it.. no, we don’t want to be like them,
    but Obama et al are apprently determined to give US no choice,
    like i’ve been saying for several years now, Obama is not only hell
    bent on revolution, but correcting Hitlers mistakes..

    A lot of whys and whats missing from this sorry. It is obvious that thugs out for the night making trouble. This is their MO.

    Dude had it comin. 2 bad he’s not takin a nice long dirt nap.

  • Patty

    Like a homeowner in some states, if a victim of a burglary, once someone steps into your home, you can shoot them. I just wonder if the clerk figured if he was hurt inside he could shoot.

    Ambulance chasers are itching to take on this case. Clerk will be another Zimmerman. I realize this is not the same but just another night in the city.

    REPORT: Bill Clinton sought to meet old mistress, offered to wear hoodie…

    Two decades have passed since nightclub entertainer and blond bombshell Gennifer Flowers stepped before cameras and announced she had a 12-year affair with then-Gov. Bill Clinton, joining a roster of attractive women who reported similar dalliances, wanted and unwanted. Miss Flowers has stepped forward once again to reveal that in 2005, Mr. Clinton offered to come visit her once again.

    “I picked up the telephone, and it was him. I said, ‘No, you can’t come over here. No way.’ I said ‘No, you can’t come to my house.’ He said, ‘I’ll put on a hoodie and jog up there.’ He used to do that. I said ‘No. No. And I want you to leave me alone.’ And that was the end of it,” said Miss Flowers, now 62, as she sipped wine and laughed languidly through an interview with WGNO, an ABC affiliate in New Orleans.

    She also had advice for Paula Broadwell, still generating scandalous news coverage of her affair with former CIA Director David H. Petraeus.

    “Call me, Paula,” Miss Flowers said, miming a phone to her ear. “I’ll give you some really good advice.”

    The self-described “cougar,” author and motivational speaker, incidentally, is currently shopping around a new reality show titled “The Real Housewives of New Orleans,” in which she plays herself.

    “I’m always looking for romance,” she explains.

    “work place incident” and “man caused disaster”

  • Patty

    Roaming the streets in the wee hours of the morning waiting for their next hit. Nothing knew but now the tables are turned do to laws, misinformed owners of nighttime businesses.

    Personally, the cities in every town aren’t doing their job. Police chief if truly wanting to stop crime could have cops instruct the owners and their employees on what to do and what not too.

    When this store was robbed the first time and clerk shot in leg, that should have been the first alarm bell going off in Owner’s Head. For a few bucks at night these businesses stay open and they will get hit over and over, again. That is what is so sad about stories like this. First I question if there was an alarm system. Most business that care about their employees and businesses do. So, Cops, Owner, Thug and so, through no fault of his own are all guilty.

    If I were the clerk I would lawyer up. He had a prior incident and it was only going to get worse.

    Absolutely nothing wrong happened here, other than the punch thrown at the clerk.

Blacks can have special interest group looking out for their (pardon the pun) welfare, but if you’re white, you’re raaaaaaacist and automaticall labeled a “supremacist”.

    The Newsweek cover said all we need to know There is a war on white “folks”. WHITES UNITE! (or suffer the consequences of looking the other way and being “nice” and “fair”) The Gravy Train has left the station.

    Not reported here is that the same clerk was shot in the leg last year in another robbery.
    He should not have opened the door.

    These blacks that were marching about this just show what a bunch of fakers they are.

    When one black guy shoots another, they don’t raise their voice, they never march, and they never complain. Yet, when a white guy shoots a black guy in self defense, then they start with their phoney outrage.

    They repeat this pattern over, and over, and continue to show how their complaints how no credibility.

  • Bleeding RED

    1. Where is the outrage for the clerk who was assaulted?
    2. Thugs accosted him on his property threatening his business and his life with acts of aggression, this is called self defense..had it been me, I would have aimed between his eyes.
    3. The black panthers are no better than common street gangs with the exception that this administration allows them to harass and intimidate citizens. I call that domestic terrorism..they should be locked up.

    “0330: why wasn’t thug life at home in bed?”

    Because, like so very many Obama voters and Eric Holder’s “people”, he doesn’t have to be up for WORK in the morning.

    More of these cases are going to spawn politically influenced indictments, and result in convictions for the one who acts to defend himself or his family. Who cares what the thug does if he’s black? No one cared that Obama was a complete and utter failure as President, he’s black, he gets re-elected.

    I’ve written it before, but it would be quite instructional for every one of you to read many of the writings of the Rt. Honorable Ian Smith, PM of the formerly functional Republic of Rhodesia, which is now the basket-case Communist dictatorship of Zimbabwe. On one occasion, after a long period of Communist terror attacks against women, children, clergy, and other non-military targets, and after absorbing the full-throated approval of such terror acts voiced by the “civilized” world, including Jimmah Carter and his cabinet members, Smith remarked something like “you can butcher women and children, you can rape and steal, but if only you have black skin you will be forgiven everything.”

    Why on Earth do any of you imagine that the same standard is not in our near future? What evidence have you seen that black populations in any civilized country have been made to conform to the standards of expected civilized behavior? What country holds blacks accountable for their enormous rates of criminality, their epidemic levels of child abandonment, their refusal to apply themselves to their schoolwork in taxpayer funded schools, their cancerous effects upon culture and morality? Where is the land of black accountability, Narnia? Unicornicopia? Certainly not Britain, or America, or South Africa, or the former Rhodesia. Blacks are allowed to run absolutely wild in every civilized place because Whites fear being called racist worse than they fear being called a pedophile or necrophiliac. At some point in our history, we decided that there is no worse crime in the world than pointing out the flaws of the black race OR THOSE OF ANY MEMBER OF IT!

    The only standard we now require of US blacks is that they not rape, severely beat, or murder us, their offspring, or each other, and that they obey the traffic rules and drug laws. Everything else is a go. How long before even these few cultural requirements fall by the wayside? If it doesn’t worry you, why not? The 2nd amendment is useless if you will spend the rest of your life in prison for any act of self-defense against a black person, and that’s where we are heading.

  • retired militaryq

    This is Texas. Clerk wont go to jail. Texas believes in the right to defend yourself. If you are in fear for your life you can use deadly force.

    On black friday we had a line jumper (in Houston) hit someone in the face. They drew a gun but did not fire. Cops showed up and did not charge the guy (he had a conceal carry permit) due to the fact that he felt threatend (after all he got hit in the face).

    Nor should he go to jail.

    Should he have opened the door? I dont think it was the best move and he probably wouldnt have opened the door if he had not been carrying a gun.

    But the bottom line is clerk will not be charged. He no longer works for that store either though he did not get fired from the article I saw.

  • Army Dad

    I learned to 2 things watching this clip. The clerk can take a punch. The thug new the clerk had a gun.

  • bg


    btw, just as i refuse to paint all Muslims with one brush, so do i refuse to paint all Blacks, as i know better.. and so would anyone else who went beyond their prejudices for whatever reason and did some research.. as numerous Muslims & Blacks are just as outraged by what these radical types say and do as you or i.. but then again, perhaps those ignorant people who like to paint others all the same, prefer all WHITES being painted with one brush the way so many ISLAMISTS, NOI, BLACK PANTHERS, ETC groups do US as well.. /serious sarc/


  • Ragspierre

    #41 Yes, this is Texas. And I will bet the clerk will be charged.

    You are not allowed to use deadly force in response to feeling “threatened”.

    Not you. Not a cop. Not nobody. Look into the law if you doubt what I’ve said.

    going to let him in until the kid sucker punched him, at that point it
    was an attack v self defense, can only presume the kid didn’t think
    he had the guts to stop him via shooting him..

    also heard there were other guys with

    Should any of us in our little world come across these types, and they want trouble, they’ll get it and more, and will no doubt be carried away in a black bag.

    3:30 in the morning is a time to be very wary of who and/or what is around you.

    Why is it some street thug sucker punches a retail clerk who at that point fears for his life, the black community makes the thug the victim.

    Another incident in SC with the store clerk taking care of business.

  • raybojabo

    “The young men got into an argument with the clerk, who unlocked his door and came outside, police said.”

    Why are the police lieing? It is clear from the vid that the clerk remained in the store and invited the thug inside. Why are people saying that he should not have unlocked the door? The clerck was obviously attempting to accomodate a potential paying customer that was upset that the door was locked for whatever reason. The people that say he should not have unlocked the door are racist because they automatically assume that the “black” guy would commit a crime. The clerk, doing his job, gave him the benefit of the doubt and attempted to appease the customer. Sadly the stupid punk decided to assult the clerk who was forced to defend himself against three possible agressors if he chose to do nothing or engage in a fistfight. The clerk knowing that he was armed could not allow the gang of punks to overpower him and steal his firearm. He made the only choice he had in this situation.

  • Jack Rackim

    The clerk took the thugs punch. Its a shame he didn’t put more than one bullet in him.
    And then to hear the “community” supporting the thug. Disgusting. I’d like to see how long his rap sheet is.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    The people that say he should not have unlocked the door are racist because they automatically assume that the “black” guy would commit a crime.

    Given what happened, how would that have been an unreasonable belief?

    In a situation that had the potential to turn life-threatening in the blink of an eye, the possibility that I might appear to be racist would certainly be the least of my concerns.

    It never fails, when you go to any blog of a well-known racist state, you’ll see nothing but hateful racist comments from 99.5% of the posters. Well, this is nothing new and no matter how much this man being shot soothes your racist souls, the bottom line is that this clerk will go to trial. And I will tell you the reasons why. In the first place, there was no reason what so ever for him to be arguing on the owners property. According to the owner, the window is bullet proof, so why would the clerk not feel safer inside as opposed to opening the door and going outside. Secondly, the clerk grabbed his gun, before going outside, it was not on his person. That alone states he was looking for a fight, when he first grabbed the gun opened the door. And all of you people know darn well, that had the clerk NOT HAD THE GUN, that door would have stayed clam shut. You all may hate black people and I don’t want to read anyone saying it’s not about that, because it is. So you may hate us, but we are here to stay, we built this country from sweat, blood, tears and death at the hands of your racist evil demonic ancestors. Two Hundred years of slavery and you all of a sudden want the world to think that White People all of a sudden woke up and were these God fearing Angels, then I have an Ice Cream Cone to sell you in the middle of a Winter Storm. I am in no way saying that the guy who punched this man was innocent and I am sure he has probably gotten into trouble before. But just because someone is a trouble maker, should we make it available for them. Didn’t you guys frown upon that with the Nat Turner uprising?

  • Amber Elmore

    “Whaddawe want? Jus-tus..” I hope you get justice. Clerk was well within his rights to defend himself after being slugged.

  • gyrfalcon

    The clerk will very likely have to face a jury. He did a lot wrong, starting with opening the door. When you have the right to use deadly force, you have the responsibility to use it according to the law.

    Since when is opening a door wrong? It might be stupid, but it’s not wrong or even illegal. This man was assaulted and apparently feared for his life. The police appear to agree with him.

  • jim

    ragspierre, just how much of a beating do you think someone should take before they defend themselves.

  • Lady

    What was the argument about? Because clearly this started before hand… & then if you are arguing through a door with someone, unless you want to fight, why would you open it… Then again, what are you doing at the door with a gun in your hand in the first place??? People please learn to take responsibility for your own actions. You know it’s against the law to put your hands on some one, just as it is against to law shoot someone, but it doesn’t make it right to shoot and or kill someone because the two of you are fighting… ” UNLESS” you were in fear for your own life. It is very clear in this case, that this clerk was no where near scared or afraid, or he would have never opened the door !
