|Bobby Maurice Tillman Killed 11-07-09|
Bobby Maurice Tillman, 18 yrs old, is only the latest in the unneccesary epidemic of death and violence amoung our youth. Bobby was randomly targeted while walking passed a house party in Atlanta, GA. The four boys ( I refuse to call them men) that jumped him did so as a act of retaliation for a confrontation with a female toward one of the group who said he couldnt hit her back because she was a female..
I wonder how many people were witnesses but stood by and did nothing. What made the other three follow the directions of the leader? They had no conscience that this was wrong? We are a nation of bystanders. There is no way that this should of been allowed to happen. No one wants to get involved and it is killing innocent people every day. It's funny how we have so many men walking around claiming that they are 'hard', that they are gansters and thugs. However, they wouldn't do anything to help someone in these circumstances. As a matter of fact, they are the 'followers' that do whatever they have to do to keep their reputation in the eyes of other men, and participating in these senseless losses of life that are plaguing our community.
I will be telling the stories of these children and anymore that arise on Freedom's INK! At what point do we as parent's teach our children to protect others. To not stand by and let someone physically hurt another person. Is it too late to start raising hero's and not bystanders?
