A Pittsburgh disc jockey, Mike Jax,  posted Freddie Gray’s arrest record on Instagram.

WAMO suspended him yesterday and said, “We are dedicated to presenting journalistic integrity as well as being sensitive to our listeners and their concerns. WAMO 100 does not share the views or condone the comments expressed on a WAMO 100 personal social media page.

Jax claims he was misunderstood:

I’d like to apologize for my previous post. My intention was not to justify Freddie Gray’s death. It was to highlight that his arrest record DOES NOT justify his death. I’m sorry I was not more clear.

      isn’t that what they all say when called out. that’s not what i really meant.

    Hey Freddy, you are a hateful, CYA turd who should never be given a mediam to spew your hateful, ignorant spew. I know you’re so sorry you were called out, maybe you could join the national guard so you can get some free food while the people you hate can fend for themselves (after all, they are out of the womb so they’re on their own now)

      Uhhh…. The DJ is named Mike.

      • blutarkus May 1st, 2015 at 6:46 am

        thanks, I corrected the post

        • bpollen May 1st, 2015 at 2:55 pm

          No problem. I started off getting pissed, but by the end of the post, I realized you just transposed names. Happens to the best of us.

          • blutarkus May 1st, 2015 at 3:08 pm

            no problem, I appreciate your posts and the corrections. Thank you for letting me know I looked like an idiot

          • bpollen May 1st, 2015 at 3:11 pm

            I have a family that seems to LIVE for those moments of mine. And they will use them against me FOREVER!

          • blutarkus May 1st, 2015 at 3:12 pm

            you and me both!

          • blutarkus May 1st, 2015 at 3:20 pm

            Thank you for letting me know I’m actually talking to a human. You and the charges against the perps who killed Freddy Gray give me some small hope that I shouldn’t hope for a zombie apocalypse

            I usually gotta watch kids playing or something similar to get out of those funks that make me want to ask Armageddon to hurry up cuz mankind has no redeeming features…

          • blutarkus May 1st, 2015 at 3:41 pm

            But I go to the darker side and think they might be better off not seeing what their “parents” left them. I love seeing innocent children playing, just living and having fun, and yet, I know they are in for a horrible nightmare they have no responsibility for, and have little power to change. I’m very sad…

          • bpollen May 1st, 2015 at 3:59 pm

            But they are the future, and they can improve things beyond what we have done. A number of things have improved since my parents time, things improved in my parents’ time… My paternal grandfather was a member of The Grange, which in many places was basically Klan Lite…

            Hope your mood improves. Just remember- happiness is essentially meaningless without suffering to measure it against. That beer at the end of a hard workday always tastes sweeter.

          • blutarkus May 1st, 2015 at 4:27 pm

            I hope you’re correct, and can predict a better future, but I also see these nightmares – – I think it may be too late

    Concern troll was concerned. Now he’s unemployed.

    • whatthe46 April 30th, 2015 at 8:52 pm

      suspended, unfortunately isn’t unemployed. but get this, he gets suspended for posting, and a cop and break a spine or shoot someone in the back and they get a paid vacation. they can all kiss my you know what.

  4. whatthe46 April 30th, 2015 at 8:50 pm

    that’s such b.s. “It was to highlight that his arrest record DOES NOT justify his death.” then why post it?

    • rg9rts May 1st, 2015 at 5:00 am

      He left his sheet at home

  5. Anomaly 100 April 30th, 2015 at 11:38 pm

    I’ve been arrested. Should I be murdered for it?

  6. rg9rts May 1st, 2015 at 4:59 am

    You think he learned anything?? I think not

  7. wpadon May 1st, 2015 at 2:01 pm

    WAMO sure has changed in the last 5 years with new ownership

  8. majii May 2nd, 2015 at 12:07 am

    I think the main purpose of Jax posting Freddie Gray’s police record on Instagram was to smear him. What he didn’t expect was to be suspended for doing it.

    • whatthe46 May 2nd, 2015 at 12:17 am

      well, i think of it this way. he obviously felt comfortable enough to think that they would accept him saying that. likely because they all share the same ignorant thought process. he just wasn’t suppose to come “out” for the world to hear outside their bubble.

  9. allison1050 May 2nd, 2015 at 5:55 pm

    He’s an mfer! Once again an example of that crap of a person insulting you to your face and then saying I was just joking.
