1 Day 5 Hours Ago

Repost from @timothywelbeck ・・・ This is #jemelroberson, a beloved father, a devoted church musician, and dedicated security guard affectionately known as Mel. On Sunday evening, he became the 841st person to die at the hands of law enforcement this year. Mel was working his usual shift as a security guard for a suburban bar on the outside of Chicago Saturday evening when a dispute among patrons escalated after one briefly left, returned with a pistol, then opened fire inside the establishment. By the time Midlothian Police arrived, Mel had already subdued the alleged assailant, pinning him to the ground. Despite the fact he wore his uniform, including a hat with “security” emblazoned across the front, and multiple witnesses alerted the police he was the security guard, the responding officers shot him multiple times. He was the proverbial “good guy with a guy” that Second Amendment devotees conjure up when seeking to defend unbridled access to firearms as a means to stymie gun violence in America. It mattered little, because the police only saw him as a black man with a weapon (they even described him as such initially). Notwithstanding, Mel was more than a “subject with a gun.” He was a man who worked tirelessly to provide for his family, and courageously sacrificed his life for the safety of others. At the time of his death, he actively prepared for the police academy exam, and planned on becoming a police officer next year (the great irony is they could learn much from him). Last week, he rehearsed all week with a new church choir and team. After he working all night on Saturday, he was scheduled to have his first Sunday as a keyboardist at the new church. @shaunking shared these stories earlier, which I now share with you, because our people are more than hashtags and trending topics. As he said, we are than links to click today and forget tomorrow. Mel was a man with a family and a plan and dreams. Remember that as you remember him. #melroberson #remembertheirnames #inhisimage #inhislikeness

“It’s happening so much that we’re getting used to it.” ~profound words spoken by my 14 year old. My heart aches that she’s growing up in a time where mass shootings are becoming the norm. We don’t have to agree on how to end it...but end it we must. . . . . . #remembertheirnames #bethechange

311. I know this address by heart. I truly don’t understand how gun enthusiasts can turn a blind eye on this crisis. For what? Can someone please explain why anyone needs an AR-15? I enjoy having a really nice toaster oven but if toaster ovens were being used as weapons of mass murder, I would be happily give mine up. I mean, a regular toaster does the trick. 🍞 Gun peeps? Look at all the names in my story and tell me what you think. Anyone? Anyone? 💔 #nra 🔫 #thousandoaks 🌳 #gunreformnow 🕰 #enough ⌛️#remembertheirnames 💙#breakthepattern ♻️#gunsensemajority 👍🏾👍🏼👍

In tears after watching the #jasoncoffman video. I just cannot take it anymore. Why aren't we doing whatever we can to stop these tragedies? We need to see real action. We need to help one another.
