SORT BY Relevancy
We spoke about the issue of Renisha McBride, in Detroit, who was shot and killed by Theodore Wafer.
She was only 19 years old.
Yesterday, the jury returned a verdict of “guilty”, of 2nd-Degree Murder/Voluntary Manslaughter and weapons charges.
Mr. Wafer’s defense, was that Miss McBride, who apparently was intoxicated and injured after a car crash, was banging at his door in such a manner, that he felt his life was in danger.
What does this guilty verdict mean?
Will this have any impact on one’s decision to legitimately defend him or herself?
Did race play a factor in the shooting?
Did gender play a role in the decision?
Barack Obama met with over 50 African leaders, promising increased investment in the continent. Why am I not getting a “warm & fuzzy”?
In the meantime, the “Islamist” group known as I.S.I.S, has been engaging on a rampage in Iraq, murdering scores of innocent people, and more recently killing Christians. The latest, what we hear, is that they kidnapped Christian women, and intend to sell them into slavery.
Barack Obama has sent humanitarian and military support to the region, but he swears, he will not be drawn into a full-scale war – oh yeah?
Just a few moments ago (yesterday afternoon), attorneys for the family of slain teenager, Michael Brown, issued a statement, calling for justice, that they say is forthcoming, and expressing outrage at what they and many, consider to be posthumous character-assassination.
Much has transpired since the shooting of Brown, 18, at the hands of whom we know now, is Officer Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran of the Ferguson, Missouri Police Department.
Yet, much remains unexplained, as to exactly what led to the confrontation between Brown and Wilson, and the shooting.
There were protests, some violent, replete with looting of liquor and convenience stores, as well as peaceful demonstrations, both, manifestations of what is seen as simmering tensions between the black community and the police.
While I wanted to take up last week’s conversation, by speaking directly to the Renisha McBride (now, 2nd-Degree murder case), the events in Ferguson have pushed this again and unfortunately, to the side; though some would argue their eerily similarities. And I do want to at some point, discuss in depth, Obama’s Afri-Con meeting with over 50 African leaders.
Yes, there will be another Iraq War.
Long Live Marcus Garvey!
PEACE BE UPON YOU!
