No shock that anytime a black criminal gets killed/’assaulted’/whatever by a white anything,the race-baiting sharks swim to blood.
Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can’t get enough publicity when it comes to anything regarding a black person, regardless of blatant guilt or criminal past.
But somehow, magically almost, when it comes to a beautiful little kindergartner, only 5 years old, sitting on her grandfather’s lap and being brutally murdered by two black American men, they have vanished into thin air. Crazy, right? But it’s just a day in the life for those two thirsty PR addicts:
Five-year-old Laylah Petersen was sitting on her grandfather’s lap when she was struck and killed by a hail of gunfire on Milwaukee’s northwest side. Two suspects described as black American males approached the house, which belonged to her grandparents and opened fire, killing Laylah.
Milwaukee Police Capt. Eric Moore told reporters that the shooting was reported shortly after 6 p.m. According to Moore, the home was targeted, and police were searching for suspects. Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn, said two individuals approached the house and fired numerous times, with one bullet piercing a wall and striking the girl in the head. A woman who lives across the street from where the shooting took place said she heard about six shots before she called 911.
Officers called to the scene entered the home and found the girl with a “devastating head wound.” Numerous evidence markers could be seen on the pavement in front of the home near an intersection cordoned off by crime scene tape as officers scoured the area for clues.
“There is no reason conceivable that I can think of that would explain this wanton, violent act,” Flynn said.
“We are going to find (the shooters). We are going to arrest them. And they are going to jail,” he asserted. Investigators have theorized that the family wasn’t the intended target.
The race baiters and liberal media bias surely have left out the part of the story that the neighborhood in which Laylah’s grandparents lived is 77% black and only 14% white. This doesn’t fit with their neat version of black victimization in America and definitely does not play well to the vision of blacks being portrayed as thugs. Hence, Laylah’s death means nothing – actually, less than nothing to them.
Obama will not call her family with condolences. There will be no memorials, no t-shirts printed, no media attention. She will be a statistic.
Laylah is important. She symbolizes all that is wrong with the racially charged, crime ridden neighborhoods. She is swept under the rug as if her death will be forgotten – but it will not. She is the symbol of all of our children that deserve to have a childhood. She is the symbol of innocence lost. She is a symbol of what happens when a broken system allows thugs to roam the streets and refuses to lock them up for fear of being called a racist.
Laylah, and thousands of other children, have lost their lives because of violence that has spun so far out of control it is almost unstoppable in the black communities. Make Laylah’s life mean something. Do not let her death be just another number. Until we DEMAND that this is addressed, all of our children, any color, are just as likely to end up like Laylah.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Milwaukee police at (414) 935-7360. The $35,000 reward will go to the first person to provide authorities with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who fired the shot that killed Laylah Petersen.
