Another Murder Going Unpunished!
I got this email from MoveOn (it’s another change/petition sort of website) and I had to share it —
On December 23, 2011, my goddaughter, Jasmine Thar, a 16-year-old African American, was shot and killed while in my mother’s front yard in Chadbourn, North Carolina.
When the shot rang out, Jasmine was preparing for a routine shopping trip and doing what most teens do—texting. Two others, my niece and myself, were also injured in the shooting.
The 23-year-old Caucasian male who fired the fatal shot from the house across the street was taken in for questioning, but he has not been charged with a crime of any kind.
Because he claims it was an accident, the police let him go—despite the fact that he admits he fired the shot and police found a Confederate flag and Nazi literature in his home.
The message being sent is that you can shoot and kill someone like Jasmine and get away with it by simply claiming it was an accident. That can’t be the world we live in.
Here’s the petition from this email. All I have to say is that I’m absolutely disgusted and appalled. How is he not being charged with a hate crime, or at the very least having to go through a trial?
This man shoots and kills someone, with racist material in his house, when the victim was an African-American girl, and they’re just ruling it as an accident because he said it was?
Yet another example of privilege dictating treatment. I cannot stress how incredibly wrong this is. When is this madness going to stop?!
COME AND LOVE ME. WE’RE FAMILY NOW, GUYS.
So, in the most technical way of using the word, every relationship is an act of incest. Beautiful.
See, tumblr is family.
..Does this mean that we’re all related to Benedict?
