Not only to the city I live in and love so very much, but right to our neighborhood. Only a few blocks away from where I like to gaze out at the lake and contemplate life and read good books the life of a black 19-year-old man ended. Tony Robinson was shot five times by an officer after a series of reported happenings that ended with an assault on that officer.
Needless to say there is lots of anger in the area and also a great deal of sadness. Though the shooting took place about 6:30 P.M. it was not for another nearly three hours before James and I learned of it. We were watching a movie and having a relaxing Friday evening. But once I found out the news my mind would not release the question about how a 19-year-old man came to such a crazy ending of his life.
