Social media has been abuzz over the start of Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin’s trial over the in-custody death of George Floyd.
Most people in America would agree that despite George Floyd’s toxicology report showing he died of a fentanyl overdose, Officer Chauvin had no business restraining him by holding him down by the neck with his knee over 9 minutes. Most people in America would also agree that the violence that occurred as a result of George Floyd’s death, as the violence following the deaths of Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, and Trayvon Martin, is utterly reprehensible.
So, if most Americans are in agreement about these issues, then why do the Democrat Party and their allies in the mainstream media continue to push the narrative that the only deaths worthy of covering are the deaths of black Americans at the hands of white police officers?
What about the violent shooting death of an innocent white teenager at the hands of a black teenager in broad daylight, near her home? Why has this story been buried by the media? Does her death not matter because she doesn’t have the right color of skin?
On Friday afternoon, an eighth-grader, Lucia Whalen Bremer of Richmond, VA, was shot to death in broad daylight by a black teenage boy. After an all-day manhunt, the teenage suspect has been arrested in connection with her shooting death.
Daily Mail reports – She was shot multiple times on Friday afternoon at the Gayton Forest West subdivision and died at an area hospital soon after.
Bremer’s family, who run a local produce business called Liberty Tree Farm, announced her death in a Facebook statement on Saturday.
‘Liberty Tree Farm is saddened to report that our beloved daughter and joyful farmer, Lucia Whalen Bremer, was killed in a senseless act of gun violence on March 26,’ the post read.
‘Thank you for keeping our family in your thoughts as we navigate the next few weeks.’
Henrico County Public Schools posted a photo of the slain student and said the community was ‘heartbroken and devastated.’
Quioccasin Middle School Principal Melanie Phipps released a heartfelt statement remembering Bremer.
‘Lucia was funny. She loved to tell jokes and made people laugh. She was an amazing public speaker, and you would just listen in awe as she spoke. Lucia was wise beyond her years. Talking to her didn’t feel like talking to a middle schooler,’ Phipps wrote.
‘Lucia was exceptional; truly one-of-a-kind. She was brave, hardworking, and kind to everyone. Her smile would light up the entire room.
‘In fact, her mother told me that Lucia’s name means “light”, which is just the perfect way to describe her. She radiated happiness, and she loved our school.’
