Unfortunately Kocolicious, you bring up some good points. The family does have some very serious unresolved issues surrounding the death of their father. These unresolved issues have manifested into many of the problems the family is experiencing today. Its sad. Who wants to experience actually seeing their father being murdered, being told to just get over it (that's what many black people were told at that time when experiencing events such as this) and facing physical threats against the lives of your family members knowing they've already killed your father. I believe his mother was suffering under extreme PTSD while trying to raise him needing help herself.
A while back we were wondering why the King children were bickering and such... now I can understand why. I feel a great deal of sympathy for them and all children who have experienced this type of trauma.
That's all I'm saying....my sista. These are high profile families devestated by murder. And so the ramification of this can possibly have a negative impact on the chlldren especially. PSTD is no joke, I've had to feathered through it years ago. I just hope everyone gets the psychological help they need. Since now most of the children now have children and grandchildren. We don't want this legacy to be a circular pattern. It needs to be broken right now, Cuz it's not easy when the healing has to be in public and there are still potential enemies out there who may be glad that these great men are gone. It's hard pill to swallow and so it's important to understand the dynamics of what grieving can do in view of the world and what psychological damage it can do to the family. But!
