White Lives Matter

My next door neighbor was a black cop in the apartment complex we both lived in. At the time I was traveling quite a lot and I remember once my 3 year old son asking his mother when I was going to come home for a visit again. Calling home from the road late one night my wife put the phone down to answer the door. When she came back on, she told me it was our neighbor picking up a UPS package that she had accepted for him. He would let my son sit in his cop car.

A few months after leaving the area, our former neighbor came across two white teenagers necking in one of the local parks. He forced them into his car drove about a 1/2 mile, dragged the boy out of the car and shot him 7 times (having to reload his gun). He drove another 1/2 mile to an industrial park where he raped her and shot her 5 times. Would he have done the same thing had the teenagers been black? Beats me, we will never know. As far as I know he is still living in jail and his victims are still dead. What a waste of human life regardless of color.

And that is all I’m going to say about it!

Compelling Scene, Great Movie
