Reply to "THE LYNCHING OF BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA"

Whose heard about this ??
And then there was this little girl, named Jasmine Thar... Trayvon dominated the headlines last year, and I noticed plenty of peeps threw up the obligatory "hoodie pic" in remembrance of his murder last year. Well, the media never really got behind this one, and that's strange to me, because her case was even more ridiculous than several others- and last year had a handcuffed man that shot himself in the head, in case you forgot... Young Jasmine was visiting her godmother Treka McMillian and her friend Jah-mesha McMillian in the small town of Chadbourn, NC. Jasmine’s mother, Carletta McNeil, was already in the SUV waiting for Jasmine and the McMillians to get in so they could all go Christmas shopping. Suddenly, a single shot from a Remington 700 rifle came from a neighbor’s bedroom window, striking both the McMillians and fatally striking Jasmine in the chest. Jasmine’s 15-year-old brother, Jay, applied pressure to the bullet-wound to her chest, begging his sister “don’t leave me.” The killer, 23-year-old James Anthony Blackwell, said the gun “fired accidentally” when he removed it from a case. Blackwell was handcuffed by Chadbourn cop Scott Rockwell and taken to the police station, but only to allow Blackwell to “calm down away from the scene.” No charges were filed because the cop wrote in his “report” that the killing was an accident. Police found a Confederate flag and Nazi memorabilia and books in the shooter’s bedroom. The rifle fired hitting all three women- Jasmine, Jahmesha and Treka McMillian. An accident? No charges filed, because it was an accident. The question should not be whether it was an accident or not. The question should be WHY the shooting was never investigated any further. If it was proven to be an accident, then people, including family members would be more understanding of how such a thing could happen. Is it legal for anyone to just "SAY" to a police officer or anyone else that any killing was 'JUST" an accident. Is it legal for a police officer to not arrest someone, when there is a shooting and a death involved. Do we not bother with "accidental killings" anymore? Why is this not a major story, with people wearing hoodies and buying Skittles?
