Does this black life matter to the media? Apparently not. Jamyla Bolden was shot and killed by thugs while in her home, sitting on her bed doing her homework in Ferguson during a drive by shooting.
Will the #BlackLivesMatter crowd demand justice for this 9 year old girl? Probably not because she was shot by thugs and not white police officers.
By the way – this happened the day before Mansur Ball-Bey was shot by police – which led to riots which included arson. According to KMOV:
FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) — Officers with the Ferguson, Missouri Police Department are investigating the fatal shooting of a 9-year-old girl Tuesday night as she laid in her bed.
The father of Jamyla Bolden said the girl was in her bed doing homework inside a home in the 9200 block of Ellison when she was shot around 9:30 Tuesday night. Her mother was also shot in the leg.
Police said the bullets came from outside of the home.
The St. Louis County coroner said the girl died of a gunshot wound. Officials with the girl’s school also confirmed her death.
“I never in a million years thought that I’d be laying my daughter to rest,” said James Bolden, the 9-year-old’s father.
Pastor Willis Johnson has been part of an effort to bring peace to Ferguson over the past year. He said the violence must cease.
