Newlywed murder-suicide: Cedric Anderson fatally shoots wife, special needs kid

Cedric Anderson and Karen Smith (Facebook: Cedric Anderson)

On Saturday, January 28, 2017, Karen Smith said “I do,” to Cedric Anderson. 53, at Bethesda Temple Church in the Hyde Park Neighborhood of south Los Angeles.


On Feb. 27, he shared a video on Facebook that was captioned, “I love being married to Karen Smith-Anderson! What I love about my wife — boy. She is making me really happy. She knows when to ignore me. It makes a happy marriage.”

On March 14, Anderson wrote a disturbing rant on Facebook following an episode of OWN’s “Greenleaf,” which he said he watched with his wife, Karen Smith, 53. He wrote in part (read the entire rant on the following page):

After watching Greenleaf with my wonderful little wife.

She finally understands me and why I feel the way I do about many Black Churches and so called Pastors, especially those to whom Church is their entitlement to the family business and community money pot.

God’s people are their slaves, servants or just some thing to use.

In the Black Church we have seen over the past 20 years an influx of former gangsters, pimps, hoes and the simple minded (who know they have no business being called a minister) starting churches and even organizations.

The result is most Black churches and black church organizations are filled with witchcraft. The people’s faith is so damaged that they wouldn’t know the presence of God if he stood on their heads.

It’s sad. Like the street gangs of our cities every pastor and church has their own banner or colors of Jesus.

I just pray for the and keep my guns close!

Today, April 10, 2017, less than three months into their marriage, KTLA reports Anderson walked into North Park Elementary, a San Bernardino, California elementary school. He reportedly claimed he was there to drop something off to Smith. He entered her classroom, pulled out a long-caliber revolver and opened fire. While he was targeting his estranged wife, who died at the scene, he unloaded a round that also struck two of Smith’s young students. One of the boys, 8-year-old Jonathan Martinez, died at the hospital, while an unidentified 9-year-old boy is in stable condition. Anderson reloaded and shot himself.

    Just more of the usual black on black crime.

      Why not be an honest racist. When some spoiled white person walks into a school as many have and kills little innocent kids and innocent adults I didn’t see a post from you or any other racist talking about white on white crime! Truth be told if black people were killing white people they would be executed and all their familes as well just like white people did so on an hourly basis to blacks for decades for no reason besides the color of their skin.

      It’s not as if you have a problem with black people killing their own because You Don’t! Do a body count of the many white people who have… for no reason killed innocent white and black people. These supposedly not poor…not black…not ridiculed… Entitled, spoiled hateful people…what is their excuse…oh that’s right they don’t need one. All that hate will eat you alive.

      • Whiteguy on April 12, 2017 at 6:36 pm

        Believe me I hope all criminals of all colors get beat to death in prison.

        But blacks do it for silly reasons…like a pair of 200 dollar sneakers that are a limited edition.

        Whites usually kill for revenge, mental issues, anger at being fired or something like that.

        Blacks kill just for the fun of it.

        But you are right a murder / suicide of 2 blacks is a win win.

          Neanderthal grow a d i c k or you will end up eating p u s s y all your life. I hope you have a big tongue. Hillbilly.

            Keep it on the down low there darky. Try to stop making tar babies out of wedlock as it is ruining your hood.

            @Whiteguy @swimologist. Hey guys, just a quick FYI. I was able to find a organic flea shampoo and conditioner for you guys. It should be less harmful than the Frontline or Advantage you guys are probably currently using, with all those harsh chemicals and it should be more effective.

            It conditions, protects and most importantly is anti itch. So no more embarrassing moments disrupting class or work meetings scratching with your hind legs trying to pick fleas and ticks out your hair.

            Here is the link below. Again, you can thank me later. Good luck! Let me know if it helps!!?

            You’re ignorant, racist, and not at all funny.

          • Oak510finest on April 17, 2017 at 6:54 pm

            Yes I am funny …and don’t go around stealing my lines, you know how” you people are!”

            Plus I don’t see you helping your fellow brethren with health tips. You actually should thank me or let them know what flea shampoo works for you that you are using.

          • SrAgri on April 17, 2017 at 11:27 pm

            I’m glad you’ve figured out your flea problems, but it’s still not funny.

          • Oak510finest on April 18, 2017 at 3:39 am

            So inconsiderate! So that’s the thanks I get for trying to help you and your hair lice issue. With the healthcare bill possibly changing due to President Cheetoh. I was trying to save you some time and money. Wow, some people are never satisfied, whats the world coming to…smh!

        • Karen Aviles on April 14, 2017 at 2:41 pm

          This is a tragedy! However, based on some comments referring to the Black community and by the way I am Puertorican, but I have to defend my brothers and sisters because I do not see their COLOR I see their hearts. There are millions of Black people intelligent, lovable, respected and wonderful and that is a FACT. As well as White people, Asian, Indians, etc. Therefore, COLOR does not define character or the making of a decision to commit a crime and that is a SCIENTIFIC FACT The COLOR of the skin does not CAUSE people to kill, rob, etc. It is a matter a of mental illness, use and abuse of drugs, learning from others who were violent during their childhood, bad solving problems skills, poor education, and many more and these are FACTS. On the other hand, people from all RACES have done evil to others.
          Now, from my heart anyone who desires to stop acting evil and truly live committed and loving others a TRUE CONVERSION to Jesus is the key. That SIN is in humankind and getting rid of it is following Jesus. For those who have mental illness there are help. I invite all to have a close look of themselves and see what areas are damaging others and our society. And for those who believe is a racial matter to get Sincerely, Mrs. Aviles

            So as a PR you would deny that PRs hate Dominicans? And Dominicans definitely hate Haitians. I went to a middle school in NY where whites were the minority. The PRs and Dominicans were always fighting with each other and the Dominicans were always fighting with the Haitians so don’t tell me that PRs are color blind.

          • SrAgri on April 17, 2017 at 6:20 pm

            She didn’t say that all PR are color-blind. She said that she is.

            Personality traits, intelligence, and moral virtues are not racial traits. People of any race can be terrible people or wonderful people.

          This Man clearly had mental issues and she was desperate for a partner that she had not vetted mentally. As a result instead of him being at work. A Man she married and trusted took her life and the life of a child in her classroom.

          • Angie Taylor on April 15, 2017 at 2:35 pm

            What do you mean “desperate”? Any time a woman finds a mate she’s labeled desperate by women who aren’t successful romantically. She as a beautiful woman, I’m sure she could have easily found another. They were friends for four years and she left him a month after getting married because he started to change…doesn’t sound to “desperate” to me.

          • Whiteguy on April 15, 2017 at 4:17 pm

            And the fact that it was a black on black crime still holds true.

      • swimologist on April 12, 2017 at 7:03 pm

        50% of the murders in this country are committed by 3% of the population: young black men. Blacks who were lynched in 19th and 20th centuries, even for minor crimes,
        were lynched because black nature is impulsive, lacking in future-time orientation,
        and violent. They are like simple animals; they only understand stiff corrections
        and brute force.

        • imani1962 on April 12, 2017 at 7:58 pm

          Did you find your weiner yet trailer trash? Be careful now a black man with a big black d i c k is f u c k i ng, your b i t c h a s s wife.

          • SrAgri on April 17, 2017 at 6:10 pm

            Most of your posts seem to include you bragging about your penis. Freud would be truly gratified by the amount of over-compensation that you are using.

        • nosey rosy on April 15, 2017 at 7:41 pm

          you are one racist dumb ass fool , 99% of white are like what you see in the mirror evil ignorant and suicidal , you might as well hang your self if you think what you said is normal thinking , seek help cause your troubles are about to run you in a creek or hang you from your frontdoor , your self destructive and the clock is ticking good luck honey

        • SrAgri on April 17, 2017 at 6:16 pm

          Stick with the facts and stop there. Black crime is a major issue in the US, but it is related to certain “cultural” aspects – gangs, rap music, and the belief in perpetual victimization.

          “Nature” is an individual quality, not something that is inherited or defined along racial lines.

          “Blacks who were lynched in 19th and 20th centuries… because black nature is impulsive, lacking in future-time orientation, and violent.”
          This is a terribly racist and ignorant statement.

      • imani1962 on April 12, 2017 at 7:55 pm

        Sharon you are way too intelligent and far superior to communicate with this trash. You are trying to have an intelligent discussion with people who can’t think their way out of a trailer park. These are white inbreds who smoke crack, do meth daily, live on food stamps and government aid, all the while talking about the illegals. These white sub human beings are pure trash, descendants of Neanderthals. These crackers are so insanely jealous of black men it is incomprehensible. It is because they know that black men are far superior to them. Basically it boils down to little white men hiding behind a computer with their little weiners, jealous of these handsome black men who are both superior in intelligence and well endowed where it counts. Basically white men need to grow a Dk.

        • nosey rosy on April 15, 2017 at 7:43 pm

          right he is just a descendant of the pattyrollers what do you expect, his grand pappy hung blacks from tree and torchured children for a living , and the slave master paid them which is the money his white ass live off of now . all they do is sit up on the computor judging blacks cause they madd that a black man is still the top sexiest to white women. lol

          • Whiteguy on April 16, 2017 at 6:26 pm

            Well if you all are the top then stop giving away all this white privilege.

          • SrAgri on April 17, 2017 at 6:08 pm

            This is extremely racist and has nothing to do with history.

        • SrAgri on April 17, 2017 at 6:09 pm

          Your post is terribly racist.

        • SrAgri on April 17, 2017 at 11:58 pm

          You are a blithering idiot and a racist.

        • SrAgri on April 18, 2017 at 8:55 am

          You’re a terrible racist and blatantly over-compensate by constant discussion of penises.
