Lets take a look at some things though. This guy that got shot was a person. He had a family that will have to deal with his death for years to come. Some lose their parents to a car crash, cancer, heart attacks what ever. All those death’s were private, but can you just imagine seeing your parent on the seven o’clock news being shot to death. Having to see your father die a thousand times.
Tonight there have been riots and looting in the streets. Our North Carolina Governor Pat Mccrory declared Charlotte in a state of emergency and sent police.
One person in the riots got shot.
This town happens to be one hour away from relatives of mine. These relatives happen to have a child that is half black. Tonight I’m truly scared for them. I don’t want him growing into a wonderful young man being scared of the police; and I don’t want his father to have to worry about picking him up from the bus stop.
What does that do to a person who is grieving? For me personally I think I would probably go crazy. For a time after my mother died I thought I was going crazy with her loss. But, can you sit back and close your eyes and look at someone rallying for or against a cause that your parent ended up dying for unintentionally.
