Dear Ms. Thompson,
I was moved by your letter and inspired to answer it. After reading many articles and letters referring to this subject, I, like you, feel for the victim’s families and my heart goes out to them. It’s very obvious, like it’s been said, this happened because they were black. Especially in the case of Philando Castile, which seems to be a double murder. Being executed and bled to death in front of his sweetheart while his 4 year old daughter watched. I didn’t read whether the officer acted alone, or if he has a family or is in remorse. All I read is that he got administrative duties with pay. No disciplinary actions- he should be stripped of his badge and gun, suspended with no pay, pending an investigation. No punishment is too severe for what he’s done. I would like to see revenge and hope some tragedy would befall him, then he would know what it’s like to be violated. I’m enraged, because by the police department to not punish him is condoning his actions; what an atrocity!
What goes around comes around- I hope he has no peace and the others that have committed crimes against mankind. There is no justice in this world.
We need change in this country and it won’t come about too soon with the election of a new president.
They almost have the fear of God or love of God in their hearts to do what they did.
I’m an avid reader of most New York newspapers and was moved by your letter and wanted to answer it right away. I’m also writing a letter to “The Voice” in the Daily News, not that that’s going to change anything, but I can get something off my head.
I pray God will bless your work in the New York City Mission Society and your family. I’m sure your efforts and work will make better results than these recently established movements like Black Lives Matter- we need God in this country.
Thank you for reading my letter and listening to my notary.
