Wasn't the First, Won't Be the Last.

There's this rapper named Dolla who got shot & killed last week. He wasn't the first MC to be murdered, wasn't the first young person, wasn't the first Black kid. Technically, the only difference between him & the thousands of guys like him gunned down in the street daily is that the media took some sort of interest in him. Probably because his uncle told the people there that he was a rapper. Unfortunately, the fame he was chasing was ascertained the moment his heart stopped beating.

God bless his family & may his soul find peace.

I'm not quite sure what the exact story was behind his death, but it was undoubtedly the same as most unnecessary murders. You don't find too many young, black guys dying for political causes nowadays. Whatever the cause, at some point, it could have been quelled; that's just a matter of mathematic properties. The science of murder, if you will. The equation can only balance out when the proper formula of variables is executed, no pun intended. The sum is, well, I'm sure you catch my drift.

All the stories focus on the young man who was murdered. But, I think the real story lies in the life of the murderer. As Jay-Z says (& many an ignorant dude has repeated), "respect the shooter". My take on that is, what made this guy in particular feel the need to destroy what God built? In broad daylight, with the proverbial world watching, he made the decision to undo a hundred blessings & trade the remainder of his life for that young mans, but not in a noble way.

Did this Aubrey guy have a Dad? A Mom? Was he abused as a kid? Did he watch too many violent movies &/or listen to all the wrong rap songs? Unlike manslaughter, murder is something the courts view as premeditated. Using this story as an example, getting into an altercation in Atlanta, "running" into one another in L.A, & being killed at a crowded, popular shopping place is as far from accidental as abortion is from miscarriage.

It seems, to me at least, that at some point, that group of people that finds cures & solves World issues would take up a certain amount of concern with these scenarios. They happen way too often to ignore (pardon my cliche). I would be tempted to even put senseless violence in the same category as sex, in terms of addressing it on a public school level. Maybe anger management should be taught following Physical Education. Mental Education, as it were.

I would hate to think that the only possible solution to all the madness is genocide. Or suicide, depending on your vantage point.

God can't possibly be happy with all of this, but I guess know one cares. That's sad in itself, because Judgment Day is coming. Like, for real.
