Nine-year old Jamyla Bolden was murdered by a gunshot as she was doing homework on a couch in her mother's home on August 18th. The community responded by offering emotional support and sponsoring a fundraiser at a local restaurant. They also held marches protesting the death. During the marches pleas for any witnesses to the crime to come forward were made. A witness did come forth. A second witness stated that the accused admitted to the crime. An arrest was made.
Contrary to popular belief, the black community does care about crime in their neighborhoods. Support is offered to grieving families. Suspects are arrested if there is enough evidence. If convictions occur, people go to prison. Justice is served.
