Ironically the 4-yr-old boy, who was killed due to negligence, name is Ferguson. Ironic because Rodriguez Ferguson’s life should matter. His name matches the birthplace of the Black Lives Matter movement. Little Ferguson matches the description given by BLM leaders. He’s black and he was killed unnecessarily. He was also still a baby, if you look closely in the picture he’s still got the chubby hands of a baby.
So far, there have been no protests or rioting outside the Ferguson home. To be fair, Little Ferguson wasn’t old enough to have any criminal record of any kind… does that mean his life doesn’t matter? So far all of the individuals who have been fatally shot by police have had a criminal record and were black. Are those 2 things the prerequisites to qualify for attention from Black Live Matter?
Just like all tragedies, this one really hurts my heart. On Sunday night in Birmingham Alabama little Ferguson died at Children’s Hospital. Ferguson was standing outside his home when he was caught in the crossfire of two adults who made a HUGE mistake over a little thing. The adults were arguing over a cellphone when the suspect and another individual started exchanging shots. Yes… they started shooting each other over a cellphone… here’s what an idiot looks like who would shoot someone else over a cellphone and accidentally hit a child.
Sgt. Brian Shelton investigating the case said, “That’s the fifth birthday you won’t see, the sixth birthday you won’t see. It’s graduation. It’s a tough time for that family, so we’re going to do our due diligence and make sure that family gets answers and has justice.” The baby killer (pictured above) is 27-yr-old Joseph Lewis, he gets to see his next birthday– hopefully it’s behind bars for a very very long time. Rest in peace you sweet sweet little Ferguson.
