Justice for .......

Justice for Sterling..... Sterling Sims was just five years old when he was gunned down along with  his 31 year old mother, Chavonne Brown, on June 28, 2013.  There are no suspects.  There have been no arrests. There has been no news coverage, beyond local press.  No one is protesting. No one is carrying signs with Sterling's name or picture. No one is demanding the Police Chief resign.  There will likely never be any justice.

Justice for Antonio..... Sixteen year old Antonio Fenner appears to be guilty of walking down the street in his own neighborhood, near his home on July 1, 2013.  He was shot and murdered by gang bangers apparently shooting at a 32 year old gang member on the same street.  Naturally they missed the gang member that was the object of the attack.  It is rumored that "everyone knows" who committed the murder, but there are no suspects, no one will "snitch." There will never be justice for Antonio. 

Justice for Damani ..... Damani Henard was just 14 years old when he committed the crime of attending his own high school, riding a bike.  He was shot and murdered just outside his school on July 3, 2013.  Once again there are no suspects, no arrests, no outrage, no protests, no national news coverage, no riots, and no news.  No national media pundits are calling for the Justice Department to get involved.  There will never be justice for Damani.  You will likely never read his name again. 

Justice for Ed ..... Fifteen year old Ed Cooper was guilty of playing in the park with his friends when a gang of men piled out of a van and fired at the children, scattering the crowd. Ed was shot as he ran but continued to run for cover. He died in  a vacant lot down the street just a few days ago, on July 9, 2012. Suspects?  Of course not. Arrests? No and yet no one is protesting about the lack of justice. There will be no justice.

I could go on, literally forever, but I am sick to my stomach. I hate the media, I hate the lazy police departments, I really hate the supposed "leaders" like the Reverend Al Sharpton who only are interested in a crime if it fattens their wallets.  I certainly hate the Zimmerman protesters who will riot, assault police, destroy property and even commit murder themselves in their rage, but will never actually do one damned thing to help the genuinely needy in this country.  And I hate our communities who refuse to invest in our towns and people to give them a good education, jobs and to make them safer.

Truth? We can't handle the truth.  Thousands upon thousands of young black male children and teens are killed every year by other black men, children and teens.  Few of these horrific murders are ever committed by women.... and almost none are ever committed by whites.
