Strange how a 15-year-old who was at a hangout at 4 a.m. gets a mural when a young man shot dead in daylight in a park, a pregnant teen and her baby were murdered and many other young blacks killed or shot get nothing.
Perhaps you have to have a celebrity father to be memorialized. The police solved Trinity Gay’s case in hours but others sit as cold cases. Is her life more important because of her father? He was suspended from competition for illegal drug use, but the paper seems to make him a hero.
Also, why did a black man who hit a police officer with his car in the dead of night on a street with no lights have to spend years in jail? A Latino hits a doctor on a bike on a narrow country road and is charged with murder, while a white women who hit and killed a child who was in a crosswalk gets no charge because she was blinded by the sun.
Is there really any justice and fairness in Lexington? Do you have to be famous or white to get special treatment? Shouldn’t all lives matter?
Never miss a local story.
