We all know the reality of the Black Lives Matter movement. It’s heartbreaking that these community organizing jack-holes can’t put as much effort into finding ways to save the lives of young black males who are killed by young black males…Meanwhile, the LAPD have offered a $50K reward for information leading to the arrest of the thug or thugs who committed this senseless murder of a young man with a bright future…
From 1980 through 2008, 84 percent of white victims were killed by whites and 93 percent of black victims were killed by blacks.
Alongside the 21-year-old victim’s mourning mother, Los Angeles police on Tuesday announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in a fatal shooting near Hyde Park in January.
Gerrik Thomas was shot about 6:30 p.m. Jan. 25 in the 3100 block of West 54th Street.
Lead Detective Connie Zych said police are investigating the crime as “gang-influenced,” though Thomas was not a gang member. She said he worked as a security guard and was a nursing student.
Los Angeles Police Department officials said during a news conference that Thomas was walking to a store from his grandmother’s house when a silver Chevrolet Camaro with a black top pulled up to him and two men asked him where he was from.
Thomas was shot and later died at a hospital. During the news conference, police showed surveillance footage leading up to the shooting.
The victim’s mother, Demicha Lofton-Thomas, said she had been talking to her son just before the shooting occurred.
“Just imagine if I would have stayed on that phone one minute later. I would have heard that shot that took my son’s life,” Lofton-Thomas said.
Here’s what she had to say about Black Lives Matter:
