An obviously troubled ex-offender that was on parole had a shoot out with police in Oakland, Calif. before being shot to death. 26-year-old Lovelle Mixon was wanted on a “no bail” warrant and stopped earlier in the day on a routine traffic stop. It was reported in the San Francisco Chronicle, that during that stop, the young man opened fire with an assault weapon that eventually resulted in the deaths of four cops.
Although Mixon and his family have been through some rough times, he is akin to lots of other black males in the country who have been raised by their grandmothers. His sister even lost her left eye during a shoot out and his maternal grandmother that raised him in Atlanta is deceased and he’s now with the paternal grandmother.
The question to you is this, and don’t cheat and write the expected answer…who are you feeling sorry for…the police or the young man? Read here to make the call.
