The heroes in our community are never given enough fanfare. One of the biggest abduction cases in this country’s history that concluded with the rescue of three young women abducted over a decade ago by Charles Ramsey. Too many times, black men are looked at as the suspect and not the hero.
The Lancaster, Pennsylvania, community is thanking Temar Boggs, 15, and his friend for jumping on their bikes when they sensed trouble was afoot in their neighborhood. Boggs senses were indeed accurate as he followed a man that had abducted his 5-year-old neighbor, Jocelyn Rojas. As Boggs and his friend continued to follow the car on their bikes, the man eventually gave up and pushed the girl from the car.
“Every time we’d go down the street, he’d turn back around, and then … we’ll follow him,” Temar told CNN affiliate WGAL.
“He stopped at the end of the hill and let her out, and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom,” Temar said.
They should name the street after these boys, so that all criminals know they are not welcomed there. Hats off to Temar and his friend!
