The protesters want everyone to know that black lives matter but their actions and their words are not aligning. There have been waves of shootings in many of the cities where protests are taking place, claiming countless black lives. Did these people not matter? We want these protesters to look in the eyes of the families that they are ruining.
Take Secoriea Turner, for instance. This little girl was brutally murdered in Atlanta over the weekend and we have yet to see any sort of remembrance in her honor. Her mother was attempting to enter a parking lot that the protesters had decided to block off. This was the family’s punishment. Two men fired shots into the vehicle without a moment’s hesitation.
According to police, Secoriea Turner was riding in a car with her mom and an adult friend when car exited the interstate near the intersection of University Avenue and Pryor Road. Police said the driver was attempting to enter the parking lot on the 1200 block of Pryor Road when they were confronted by a group of armed individuals who were illegally blocking the entrance.
Someone in the group began shooting at the car, hitting it multiple times including the shot that hit the child.
The wounded girl was immediately taken to Atlanta Medical Center in a private vehicle, but she did not survive her injuries.
The people suspected of shooting the child were described as a group of black males. One of the shooters wore all black, dressed like a bounty hunter, according to police. The second wore a white t-shirt. A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction. Tipsters can remain anonymous and still receive a reward. Call 404-577-8477.
There were six severe shootings in Atlanta this weekend alone. A police station was also attacked by the protesters. While the mainstream media may have gotten tired of reporting on the protests, they are still taking place on a daily basis in many of America’s liberal strongholds. The group that is suspected in the aforementioned shooting is comprised of black males.
They claim that black lives matter but they did not waste any time murdering an innocent little girl who was riding in a car with her mother. Her hopes and dreams have been snatched away because these protesters were on a power trip. Who do they think they are? That is not their parking lot to guard.
According to reports, one of the men was dressed in all black and resembled a bounty hunter. One of the other men wore a white T-shirt. If anyone can offer information that will lead to their arrest, there is a $10,000 reward being provided by the Atlanta authorities. An anonymous tipster will still be given the chance to collect the reward as well.
Anyone with information to provide is urged to pick up the phone and call 404-577-8477. CBS 46 in Atlanta is not willing to provide any information about the shooters and no other news outlets are ready to step forward. They are perfectly capable of helping out and they refuse to. You would think that the journalists who pride themselves on knowing what is going on would take the time to investigate.
Maybe these men are not even affiliated with the Black Lives Matters protesters. Perhaps they have gone rogue and they are speaking only for themselves. Since the media does not actually care about what is going on unless they can bend the narrative for ratings, we have no idea what is taking place. Most of the mainstream media seems to be out to lunch these days, in all honesty.
When people cannot figure out what is going on because the media has gone silent, that allows them to decide on whatever narratives work best for their purposes. Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has had enough. “Enough is enough,” she said. She told Atlanta resident that they would not be able to blame this one on the police officers, no matter how hard they try.
Bottoms wants Atlanta residents to take the same passion that they have for police reform and work on fixing their own communities. Over 75 shootings have taken place in Atlanta over the past few weeks. They cannot be placed at the feet of the local police department. People need to take the time to look within and examine what is really going on. In other words, it is time to take a long look in the mirror.
The police blame game can only be played for so long before people start to get fed up. No one wants to listen to these complaints over and over again. Keisha Lance Bottoms is the one who should be blamed but there is plenty to go around. Perhaps Fulton County DA Paul Howard would like to come forward and accept the role that he has played in the violence. Governor Brian Kemp is also going to have to take his fair share. Order must be restored.
