Let me start by saying thank you to all those who are supporting me and my family in this tough time.
I say this not for pity, not for money, not for revenge..
I say this for justice, truth, and the unalienable rights that we all share.
My father was taken from me yesterday in an instant.. The feeling is somewhat hard to comprehend really.. Death itself is such a basic human trait you would think as an evolutionary species we would’ve found an answer to why something so basic is so mystical and emotional. However, death is understandable in a sense, if a loved one dies of natural causes most of the time you can learn to accept this over time and mend. But what isn’t understandable is what happened to my father yesterday… The police were called to deescalate an issue, which in fact they escalated. Did I have to lose my father yesterday? Was it his time? I’ll never truly know..
I just want to share with my friends the way I feel and the way I’ve been treated by the Dallas police department. I have not received a call from the police since the incident, I have not had a chance to pay my respects as I have not seen his body as it is “evidence”, I have not had one straight answer from the ones we call protectors and first responders. I want you, my friends, my family to know that I’ve been stripped of the most basic and unalienable human rights in the past few days. I feel helpless, angry, regretful, and in an unimaginable amount of pain. I do not seek to harm anyone, I only seek answers. I want to see my fathers body and see first hand the bruises that the doctor told me he had on his forehead and body. I want to see first hand the evidence of assault. Its so hard to move on from something and have some sort of closure when you can’t even see the body of that person. Its almost as if this was all a dream and it could have all never happened. I just want you to know that I haven’t even received a call of sympathy for the loss from the Dallas police department. NOTHING. I just wish someone involved would have a contemplation of purity and be removed from the haze of their own wrongdoing and speak up.
By the way, the police failed to mention this in their report but my father has been in and out of mental institutions and rehabilitation facilities for the last 11 years of my life. Whether his actions were induced naturally or not, the fact remains that I lost someone that I didn’t have to lose.
I lost someone in an unreasonable act of violence.
I just want people to know that what really happened. I found it hard to believe at first, I almost did not want to believe my own family. However, when random citizens and tipsters of Dallas send emails and messages confirming what your family members saw, its hard to not believe it.
If you want to know how you can help, please do so peacefully and do so by educating.
Let the people who think this is okay know that it is not.
It’s somewhat comical how yesterday at the hospital I was told my father died of cardiac arrest and today its because of pepper spray. DPD your ducks are not lining up.
We will not forgive
We will not forget
