Senate aide Samuel T. "Tom" Barnes, slain two years ago on a street corner near the Capitol, was described in court yesterday as the victim of an indiscriminate shooting by an assailant who told friends moments before the killing: "Let's go get a white man."
Two prosecution witnesses testified in D.C. Superior Court that Edward Ellsworth Evans, now 21, approached Barnes from behind at Seventh and Acker streets NE, pointed a pistol at Barnes's head and shot him at close range in an unprovoked attack.
—Tom Barnes, a congressional aide for Alabama Senator Richard Shelby was shot in the head by a teenager, Edward Evans Jr., who lived down the street from Barnes in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Barnes died four days later and was killed nine months after LaShawn Evans had been murdered. Despite overwhelming evidence against Edward Evans Jr., his trial ended in a hung jury with one juror refusing to convict him.
In 1992, a white congressional aide working for Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama was accosted at his home in Washington, D.C., and shot to death. A few weeks later, Edward Evans, a young black man, was arrested. Two friends of Evans testified that they saw him shoot the young staffer.
One of them said that Evans harbored strong antiwhite sentiments and promised he was going to kill a white man.
The material evidence against Evans, presented at trial, seemed overwhelming. Yet although eleven jurors including five blacks, initially agreed that Evans was guilty of murder, one African American woman, Velma McNeil, refused to convict.
A frustrated white jury foreman claimed to the judge that "one juror" was simply unwilling to give credence to the prosecution's evidence against Evans. He also stated later that, during jury deliberations, McNeil told fellow jurors that the exoneration of Los Angeles police officers who beat black motorist Rodney King showed the systematic bias of the judicial system against blacks. The consequence was a hung jury, and the judge was forced to declare a mistrial.
A Washington Post photograph shows McNeil emerging from the courtroom, smiling, chatting, and embracing a relative of the accused.
Racist black jurors like McNeil to be common in future trials of black thugs based on the so- called "Racial Justice Act"mentioned below.
Black judge rules that there were too many blacks excluded from the jury. Two black jurors on the jury was not enough for "racial justice". The goal evidently is to get racist black jurors who will refuse to convict black thugs guilty of violent crimes against whites like in the previous murder case of Samuel T Barnes..

In 1991, 18-year-old Marcus Reymond Robinson and a friend convinced Erik Tornblom, 17, to give them a ride home from a gas station.
Robinson and his friend then pulled a gun on Tornblom, forced him to drive to a field, took his car and his money and shot him in the face with a saw offed shotgun..
A jury later convicted Robinson, who is black, of pulling the trigger on Tornblom, who was white. The prosecution presented evidence that Robinson said he wanted to kill a "whitey".
He was sentenced to death and scheduled to be executed in 2007
