I hate that you and your family must join this exclusive yet growing group of parents and relatives who have lost loved ones to senseless gun violence. Of particular concern is that so many of these gun violence cases involve children far too young. But Michael is much more than a police/gun violence case; Michael is your son. A son that barely had a chance to live. Our children are our future so whenever any of our children – black, white, brown, yellow, or red – are taken from us unnecessarily, it causes a never-ending pain that is unlike anything I could have imagined experiencing. … You will experience a swell of support from all corners of the world. Many will express their sympathies and encourage you to keep fighting for Michael. You will also, unfortunately, hear character assassinations about Michael which I am certain you already have. This will incense and insult you. All of this will happen before and continue long after you have had the chance to lay your son to rest.

Time.com has published an open letter from Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, to the family of Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old who was killed on August 9th by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. In the two years since Martin’s murder, Fulton and Trayvon’s dad founded The Trayvon Martin Foundation to provide support for the family members of victims of violent crimes. I encourage you to read the full letter at the link. [TIME] [Photo: Getty]

Police in South Carolina arrested a mom last weekend after she allegedly directed the word “fuck” at her children in a Kroger grocery store. Danielle Wolf, who just moved her family to the city of North Augusta three weeks ago, grew frustrated with her husband for squishing the bread in her shopping cart, and displayed her annoyance with a few four-letter words. A fellow shopper approached Wolf and insisted that she had said “fuck” in front of her children. Wolf had said the word to her husband, not her kids, though I’m not sure why a total stranger felt entitled to this clarification. “She’s like, ‘you said the f-word’, and I’m like, ‘when did I say this to my kids?’” Wolf told local news station WJBF. “She’s like, ‘you told them that they were smashing the bread’, and I said ‘no’ I said that to my husband, that he was smashing the bread by throwing the frozen pizzas on top of it.’”

One thing lead to another, and though the irritated shopper hadn’t intended for Wolf to be arrested, she ended up leaving the store in handcuffs. Keep reading »

Steubenville Assailant Is Back On His High School Football Team

Remember when two teenaged boys from Steubenville High School were sentenced for sexual assaulting a 16-year-old girl and all CNN could do was mourn about how these two boys’ lives were “destroyed”? It was a rather disgusting display of where some people’s priorities lie: as the judge rendered a guilty verdict towards two young sexual abusers, CNN’s Poppy Harlow lamented, “These two young men — who had such promising futures, star football players, very good students — literally watched as they believed their life fell apart.”

Well, good news, everyone who felt bad someone screwed up his “promising future” by sexually assaulting a fellow human being: 18-year-old Ma’Lik Richmond is back to playing on his high school football team. Keep reading »

Renisha McBride’s Killer, Theodore Wafer, Found Guilty

Prosecutors Charge Theodore Wafer, The Man Who Killed Renisha McBride, With 2nd Degree Murder

The jury has spoken: Theodore Wafer, the Michigan man who shot unarmed Black teenager Renisha McBride on his doorstep, is guilty of second-degree murder, manslaughter, and one count of felony firearm. Back in November, 19-year-old McBride got into a car accident and found her way to Wafer’s front door, which she knocked on at nighttime. Wafer shot McBride in the head through a closed and locked screen door on his front porch, killing her. Wafer, who is white, had initially claimed that his gun went off accidentally; he had also claimed that he didn’t know his gun was loaded. Wafer now faces life in prison with the possibility of parole. [New York Daily News; MSNBC]

It wasn’t enough for Sarah Espinosa of Albany, New York, to crash into a firehouse while driving drunk. No, she had to show off and do it with a python around her neck. A stolen python, that is. Last night, Espinosa crashed through the garage door of a firehouse  on Long Island and struck two firetrucks. Firefighters quickly scampered to the scene to find a “small ball python” around her neck. Before she drunkenly got behind the wheel of her car, this pillar of society had stolen the snake from a nearby Petco store. Espinosa got hit with a DUI, unlawful possession of marijuana, reckless driving, second-degree reckless endangerment, and petty larceny; the python was returned unharmed. [Newsday] [Image of a python via Shutterstock]
