Police City of Roanoke June 5, 2013

The Roanoke Police Department has made two arrests in a robbery. William Jesse McPherson, age 21 of Ferrum, and Schyller Marie Torres, age 19 of Roanoke, were indicted by a Roanoke Grand Jury on June 3, 2013, on one count each of robbery.

Mr. McPherson and Ms. Torres were arrested on June 4, 2013. Both were employed at the K-Mart located in the 1400 block of Hershberger Road on May 11, 2013, when they reported a robbery by a suspect who exited through the back of the store and fled in a dark colored vehicle.

Through the course of the investigation, officers were able to determine that a suspect did enter the store, brandish a firearm, and demand money; however officers also determined that both Mr. McPherson and Ms. Torres were involved in the planning of the robbery.

The investigation is ongoing to determine the identity and whereabouts of the third suspect who fled with the money. Anyone with information regarding this or other crimes should call the Roanoke Police Department at (540) 853-5959 or Crime Line at (540) 344-8500.

Crime by Race in Virginia

In 2014 I pulled the incidents below from the Roanoke police for January to the first week of June. I was surprised by the number of blacks - Roanoke is about 26% black.

In the ones where race was identified as 14 black, 4 white, 4 unknown. When I used the 2012 State Police crime report they revealed there's no criminal category for Hispanics so their high crime rates inflate the white rate because they are counted as white - so white here is white/Hispanic and really everyone else. Asians by far have the LOWEST crime rates.

Blacks are about 20% of the Virginia population, Hispanics about 8%.

Blacks per capita commit 10.3 times the murders of whites in Virginia.

Blacks per capita commit 3.45 times the rapes of whites. There were 231 more white victims of rape than white offenders but 184 more black offenders than black victims. National stats show white on black sexual assaults are virtually zero. Do the math.

Blacks per capita commit 15 times the robberies of whites in Virginia.

Blacks per capita commit 4.6 times the assaults of whites in Virginia.

Blacks per capita commit 3.6 times the burglaries of whites in Virginia.

Conclusions: while the above figures are rough but they correspond closely with arrests and subjects in Roanoke. Likely the 4 unknowns are also black.
