I have no words for the killing of 13-year-old Karon Blake, but I’m tired. May he rest in heavenly peace, and may the killer be brought to justice.
I absolutely loved last week’s Words to Live By by the great George Washington Carver. His words on treating people with compassion were so powerful and will be my new motto.
Seat Pleasant, Md.
Karon Blake would be alive today, if he was in bed at home. He should have been preparing for school the next day. Police should investigate, and we should withhold judgment. I had my car broken into in DC. I understand how violated one could feel, and if Karon attacked me at 4am I would have protected myself too.
The death of any 13-year-old child is awful. And so is that same child being out at 4 am breaking into cars after having stolen one. You have to be squeaky clean in DC to get a CC permit, which the shooter in this case had. I just can’t believe that people are demanding that the shooter be thrown under the jail and refuse to touch on the activities of the deceased.
