Ferguson, MO: 9 Year Old Jamyla Bolden Shot Dead as She Was doing Homework on Her Mother’s Bed … Do Black Lives Matter?
DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER IN FERGUSON, OR IS IT JUST WHEN THEY ARE KILLED BY THE POLICE?
9 year old Jamyla Bolden was shot dead as she was doing homework in her home as she laid on her mother’s bed. Jamyla was a fourth grader at Koch Elementary School. The incident took place at about 9:30 Thursday night in the 9200 block of Ellison in Ferguson, Missouri. The shooting happened a couple of blocks from the site where 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer on Aug. 9, 2014. What a tragic and sad story about the death of a child who was simply just doing home work. Her mother also suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.
For the Black Lives Matter crowd, this is what you should be concerning yourself with. But alas, there are no cops, and white ones at that, to blame. Only most like gang members. You would protect when a thugs who attempt to attack a police officer or stupidly points a gun at police and wind up dead, imagine that? But for an innocent young girl you are silent. What’s the matter Rev’s Al and Jessee, not enough race-baiting in this tragic situation?
Ferguson police are searching for clues about the killing of a 9-year-old girl who was shot when someone fired into a home where she was doing homework on her mother’s bed.
No arrests have been made in Tuesday night’s fatal shooting of Jamyla Bolden and police don’t yet know if the home was targeted or the shots were random, Ferguson Sgt. Dominica Fuller said Thursday.
Jamyla’s mother, 34, was struck in the leg and treated at a hospital.
“You have a 9-year-old child on her mother’s bed doing homework and a bullet strikes her,” Fuller said. “Our concern is to get this person off the street.”
The shooting happened a couple of blocks from the site where 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer on Aug. 9, 2014, sparking sometimes violent protests.
Fuller, herself the mother of a 9-year-old, was among the first officers at the home after the shooting, which was reported just after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. She said police did all they could to help the child, to no avail.
