In Memory of Micheal Lahood jr.
After reading about an old post by Sean-Paul Kelley "So called" best friend of murder victim Micheal LaHood Jr. I found the friends letter of regret he later wrote. Was he pressured or payed to write the "I forgive him" letter. will we ever know?
The other day a violent thug criminal Kenneth Foster was spared the death penalty by the Governor of Texas. I really didn’t know much about the case so I tried to do some research to see what it was about. I did a Google search and to my surprise you would think Kenneth Foster was a Rock star. I found out all there is to know about him. He is a talented poet / rapper a real family man. There were pictures of him in every position. There were thousands of posts about Kenneth. Wrong place wrong time, he never knew violence would take place, this guy wouldn’t hurt a fly.
Then I wanted to learn something about his victim. The man Kenneth Foster followed to his house with Kenneth’s buddy in crime Mauricio Brown, who shot him in the eye as he tried to protect his girlfriend, Micheal LaHood jr. I found nothing, not one positive thing, I thought to myself, wait this can’t be. There were thousands of pics and posts by every Liberal group in America about Foster and not one picture or good thing written about Michael LaHood Jr. Nothing, the only mention of him in the thousands of posts was “The man who was shot by Brown, a Law student”. But I knew everything about Foster. I started to look deeper and deeper and after a 1/2 hour I found a couple of Michael’s friends reactions in one blog. Don Suber Blog.
1. “Michael was one of my best friends. It seemed like he knew everybody. About 2,300 people showed up at his funeral, because he made everyone feel like his best friend. People joked that he would be mayor someday because it seemed like he knew the entire city. He and his family are special people, too hard to explain in a writing. He always stood up for others, even in his death, protecting a woman from armed robbers. The facts are so misconstrued by the Foster campaign and the left media in this case it is saddening”.
2. High risk crimes deserve a high risk punishment … This “armed robbery” night was premeditated by all 4 criminals … I’m sorry, but I just cannot buy the “innocent driver” theory. There is nothing innocent about Foster’s criminal history, lest we leave that out. I also have great difficulty with the theory that these 4 men made a “wrong turn” that tragic night and happened to end up on the same street of the LaHoods … I happen to know where the LaHoods live and it is no easy task to find their home nestled deep in a neighborhood. I agree with Norma LaHood that they will never have closure, they just want justice for an innocent man who had so much to offer life and mankind. The LaHoods will never stop grieving, they will never get to enjoy Michael’s wedding day, children, grandchildren, his love and zest for life. As David mentioned above, I attended Michael’s’ funeral and was told that it was the biggest attendance in that funeral home’s history … Why? Because Michael touched so many lives with his love for life and fellow man that multitudes grieved his loss. Foster was a willing accomplice to the murder of an innocent man … Let’s keep our perspective clear.
Then I found a letter, something I had seen before, one of Michael’s friends who said in another post that was squeezed out of him by Fosters lawyers. I had seen this letter on nowpublic.com A letter by Sean-Paul Kelley who had said he forgave Foster for his crimes. I was uneasy about it from the start, then I find this letter of regret about his first letter forgiving Foster. He wrote, “As you all are aware Kenneth Foster, Jr. was granted a rare reprieve today. I don’t have much to say about the journey I’ve been on this last two months since his attorney contacted me, based on this years’ old Agonist post. At the time I wrote those words they were careless words, easy words. How often is it a man is called to account for easy, self-righteous words? Being true to one self, living up to one’s own creed is a lonely business. During this process I wanted to quit several times and delivering the letter from Kenneth to the LaHood’s, well, it sure as hell didn’t feel like my finest hour–nor was it. Mike’s family is rightfully angry at me, I suppose. So is D-Day. I accept that. We’ve all lost here. No one has won anything, except one man. Kenneth Foster, Jr. was a thug. He was a serial criminal with a history of violence”.
So this is what we have come to. Is it any wonder Black men are killing each by the thousands a year when all our efforts are to praise the thug criminal. Build him up as a great person and say nothing of the victim. Foster is not remorseful, he is only sad he got caught and couldn’t cover his tracks. The Liberal mind at work, evil is good, good is evil. Judge no one, pay no mind to all the good young Black men, but the thug we will protect because he is the true victim. Well this is in memory of Michael LaHood jr. who was a good man and would have been a good father and would have had beautiful children, But because of a few scum thugs he lies in the cold ground alone. I couldn’t even find a picture of him so we do not know what he even looked like.
