You know, every since this Aiyanna Jones case has been in the press I've been a little bothered. If everything that has been said is true regarding the case, I'm truly disturbed. First thing I'm disturbed about is the senseless and large amount of violence in the City of Detroit. Most of which hardly makes the national news. . . we know why that is. Then when I found out why the police were there at the residence in the first place, I was disgusted. Turns out that a few days before 17 yr old Jerean Blake was shot to death in a senseless act of violence by the cousin of the father of Aiyana Jones. Aiyanna's father was supposedly riding with these older men 28 - 30 yrs old when they shot the teenage boy to death because they didn't like the way he looked at them. The police were there looking to arrest all of the suspects. Family or not, there ain't no way that child should've been put in harms way because of some dumb shit that her family members did to another black child! I blame the police for their irresponsible actions, but those actions were predicated by the actions of those men who her own father had been associating with on the day of the crime!
Outside of Detroit, there hasn't been one peep about Jerean Blake's murder. From what I've been reading on Jerean's Facebook tribute page, Detroit is mad about that senseless killing. Jerean's mother is actively seeking justice for her son in the Michigan state court system.
When I read about all this and the subsequent details I was so disappointed and disturbed. Check out a blog on this contributed to by BlackAchievementUSA and Antoinette. Videos and references included. SAD!
