The late Trevon Johnson
His family says: “You have to look at it from every child’s point of view that was raised in the hood. You have to understand...how he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school? You have to look at it from his point-of-view.” Yeah..."Keepin' it REAL!" (http://miami.cbslocal.com/…/teen-burglary-suspect-killed-h…/)
The TRUTH is....NO YOU DON'T!
We DON'T have to "LOOK AT crime through the offender's eyes." Didn't Dave Chappel do a bit on how "Keepin' It REAL" often leads to some VERY bad outcomes?
Sadly (for the Johnsons), other people DO NOT "have to" look at things from a semi-literate primate's viewpoint. SORRY, but they just DON'T!
The sister of the teen who died identified him as Trevon Johnson and said that he was a student at nearby D. A. Dorsey Technical College.
“I don’t care if she have her gun license or any of that. That is way beyond the law...way beyond,” (ACTUALLY, it’s NOT “way beyond the law” at all) said Johnson’s cousin Nautika Harris. “He was not supposed to die like this. He had a future ahead of him. Trevon had goals...he was a funny guy, very big on education, loved learning.”
No...that doesn’t make any sense, so it’s almost certainly NOT true. Generally, “teens” who are “good students” and “love learning,” are virtually universally nonviolent. I know that sounds strange, but it’s true!
On the other hand, a LOT of very violent offenders ARE indeed “funny guys,” at least to those “in their crew.”
