Listen to the raw 911 call made the night Lennon Lacy was found hanging from a playground in Bladenboro.
This is the story in a nutshell: A 31 year old white woman Michelle Brimhall , has a sexual relationship with High school football player; a college hopeful. The young man is 17 years old African American. His name was Lennon Lacy. He was found hanging from a rope that was tied around his neck.The Bladenboro Police Department has ruled his death a suicide. The local people do not trust the integrity of the police investigation. Lennon had bruises and face wounds. After seeing her son in the body bag, his mother noticed Lennon had head wounds as though he was attacked.
Oh well, if this is another case that a young boy is murdered like Emmitt Till. Emmitt was murdered in Money, Mississippi for looking at a white woman the “wrong way”, by an angry racist mob that kidnapped him from his home August 25 1955.
The people may protest in Bladenboro, NC I just hope all white people are not painted with the same broad brush use to identify a few that may have a racist motive for hurting some one. If in fact it is determined that Lennon was killed by a person or people, it is sad still. Especially when his mother remained in the Bladenboro community where his neighbor had a nice green lawn, with a very alerting sign that read in bold writing:”NIGGERS KEEP OUT”. With the sign, came a large array of Confederate flags as if they were growing right from the very soil like a plant.
I know when I’m not wanted, I would have move to a safer neighborhood. A place where it would be okay if I chose to date a white woman. A place other than Bladenboro, North Carolina.
The shooting of unarmed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri by officer Darren Wilson. Took place on August 9th 2014. Finally, the police department sent out police chief Thomas Jackson to issue the Brown family an apology for murdering their son and relative. On September 25, 2014, (wow a month and a half)
Well, better late than never. The police cannot come to grips with their own infallibility. Maybe the police department can use a laxative to rid itself of their fecal like attitude towards the people that they serve.
Robert Frost was a great American poet. One of his poems is called “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening.
Reading the poem, I could not help thinking how easily distracted as he rode the horse in the snow. I see the attention deficiency in his constant stopping and thinking about snowflakes, a talking horse that communicates with his body, while trespassing on someone else’s private property.
Attention Deficit Disorder ( acronym A.D.D) can be beneficial for the curious mind of a man who loves nature. Robert Frost was , and still is one of my favorite writers, with a disability.
The football player Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens made one mistake after the other. This is the teachable moment:
Ray Rice’s first simple mistake was to stick out his short arm, striking Janay Palmer (his then fiancee).
The second thing Ray did wrong: Ray let her stay on the floor without helping the woman that he socked.
All he had to do was help her up off of the elevator and apologize.
Have a great day by thinking positive!!

NBA superstar Lebron James will be returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The two year contract is worth $44 million dollars. Lebron is saying bye bye to the Miami Heat and their wonderfully supportive fans. Now fans are looking for their own jerseys with James’ number 23.
Lebron James is the first basketball player to return to the Cavaliers. I hope The KING can help bring down the crime rate in Cleveland. He is already said to add $100 million to the Cavaliers organization and $500 dollars to the local economy.
Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, was a prisoner of war. Sgt. Bergdahl was the only American solider held captive in Afghanistan since the war began. After holding brave Bowe Bergdahl for five years, the Taliban has agree to free him in exchange for five Taliban supporters being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Two of the five prisoners being release were accused of murdering thousands of Shiites in Afghanistan.
Sgt. Bergdahl is only 28 years old. He will heal hopefully well, since he’s still young and he is an American.
