Now I am not one to hold people’s families against them, but a search for his name discovers that Jermonick Luther, Sr. had no fewer than 8 felonies and 2 misdemeanors on the scoresheet. Nearly every one of them was for possession of large amounts and several different types of drugs. One for armed burglary, and one for aggravated battery. A couple included DUI. In other words, dad was a drug dealer. It may even be related to a similar crime not too far away in Marion county, in my opinion.
This is the story of black America: largely absent, drug dealing criminals fathering children who grow to do the same. Since, like nearly all homicides of blacks, the police weren’t his killers, BLM doesn’t care. There will be no protests, no taking of knees, no celebrities championing his cause. Mr. Luther’s death will be mourned by almost no one.
Until that cycle is broken, until people vow to change this all to frequent story, black men will continue to die by the thousands, forgotten because their death serves no political purpose.
