The media is beatifying another violent criminal for sainthood. His only qualification is being black and forcing a police officer to have to shoot him in self-defense.
Raupheal Thomas just got out of prison for armed robbery. On Monday November 3rd, a homeowner called police to report two suspicious men he thought were casing houses. When police arrived, Raupheal Thomas fought with police. An officer shot and killed him. A gun was recovered at the scene.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer has begun his beatification process for sainthood. He was “a loving father” who was “turning his life around.” He was a great athlete and a great artist. He practically raised his infant daughter from the dead.
Another gentle giant cut down in his prime.
Raupheal Thomas lightened the mood of the rooms he walked into and was a neat-freak who began turning his life around with the birth of his daughter.
Thomas was a barber and tattoo artist. His mother described him as a “gentle giant.”
“He was a happy young man, a jokester,” Sherry Wilkerson said. “He was always laughing and making people laugh.”
Wilkerson said her son loved to skateboard as a kid and was born with a natural artistic talent that he used to design T-shirts, tattoos and haircuts.
“He was the person who would come up to you and cheer you up when you were down,” Wilkerson said. “He’s not this monster they’re making him out to be.”
Wilkerson said Thomas was a popular athlete who ran track at his West Virginia high school. After the family moved back to Akron, he started hanging out with the wrong crowd, Wilkerson said.
So there you have it! The dude was a saint that just happened to be carrying a gun and perhaps he was on his way to church or something! Okay so here is where it get’s better. Ah yes, now we have protesters and this just could turn into another Ferguson-I guess it depends on if the cop was white or not.
