This week, the Ferguson riots were reignited after police shot dead 18 year-old Mansur Ball-Bey after he pointed a gun at them while fleeing a crackhouse.
Race-baiters are already all over this crime, but there was another killing in Ferguson this week that they are conveniently ignoring…
9 year-old Jamyla Bolden was doing her homework in her Ferguson bedroom on Tuesday night when she was suddenly shot in a drive-by shooting. According to Infowars, she died of her injuries.
“The father of Jamyla Bolden said the girl was in her bed doing homework inside a home in the 9200 block of Ellison when she was shot around 9:30 Tuesday night. Her mother was also shot in the leg,” reports KMOV 4.
You would think the Ferguson community would be even more outraged about this child’s death than they are about a teenage thug who had been in a crack house, but there’s one huge difference in these cases: Bolden was NOT killed by a white police officer. Because of this, her murder has been swept under the rug in the community she lived in all her life.
After Bolden’s death, Pastor Willis Johnson commented that this tragedy reinforces the fact that ALL lives matter.
“There needs to be a reevaluation of human life: [whether] black, white, young, seasoned, whether in Ferguson, or areas considered affluent,” said Johnson. “This has to stop. This epidemic of lost life under false pretense and of no real significant reason has to change.”
Instead of rioting against police, maybe Ferguson residents should focus on trying to find whoever killed this little girl. We pray for her soul, and we hope that her killers are caught and brought to justice…
