Activists Demand ‘Justice’ After Black Teens Murdered in Sacramento Mall

Posted on | November 29, 2020 | Comments Off on Activists Demand ‘Justice’ After Black Teens Murdered in Sacramento Mall

Remember when Black Lives Matter activists made “defund the police” the core demand of their movement? After two teenagers were shot to death Friday, now they want police to apprehend the killer:

The family of two teenagers killed during a Friday shooting inside the Arden Fair mall spoke out on Saturday during a tearful vigil service.
The two victims were brothers: 19-year-old Dewayne James Jr. and 17-year-old Sa’Quan Reed-James. Family and friends gathered at the mall at 6 p.m. to pay respects and ask the community to step forward with information and demand more resources for the community’s Black youth amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“We just want justice,”
said the teens’ aunt, Sharron Jackson.
The shopping mall erupted in gunfire Friday night just after 6 p.m. and the teens were shot near the mall’s southwest entrance.
James was pronounced dead at the scene, while Reed-James was taken to UC Davis Medical Center, where he died several hours later. . . .
Leia Schenk, founder of Empact; Allegra Tayor, founder of The Village Advocates of Sacramento; and Jamilia Land, a local activist with ties to the James family, all spoke at the vigil.
“Whoever is out there who did this, may God have mercy on your soul,” Land said, holding back tears. . . .
The suspect, believed to be a man in his 20s, remains at large. Police have given few details but said they are working to make an arrest using surveillance footage captured by mall cameras and witness statements.
“It’s time for the community to stand up, take back our community, teach our children different,” Land said. “Give them something other than guns and rap music to pick up and follow behind.”

Notice that there is no description of the “man in his 20s” who perpetrated this murder. Probably not a Trump supporter, IYKWIMAITYD.
