The Shooting Of A 14 Year Old.

A Few Weeks Ago A 14 Year Old Boy Was Shot And Killed By The LAPD Hollenbeck Division.  The Story Hit News Channels For A Couple Of Days In A Row. A Vigil And Protests Followed Days After The Shooting. A Witness Claimed That Jesse Ramos Shot At Officers While Being Chassed On Foot. LAPD Investigators Claim That Jesse Shot At The Officers With A 45 Caliber Revolver. 

The Community Believes That The Story Is Made Up. Friends And Family Of Jesse Spoke Out At Said That He Was A Good Person And A Great Student. There's Always Two Versions To Every Story. It's Hard For Me To Believe That Kids This Young Carry Pistols. It's Mind Blowing. The Sad Reality Is That The Youth Of My City Is At Risk. I Feel That Community Leaders In Boyle Heights Need To Step Up And Create More Programs To Keep Children Busy And Off The Streets. Realistically, No Matter How Calm A City Is, There's will Always Be Bad Apples. At The Same Time I Sit And Wonder If Jesse Actually Possessed A Gun The Day Of His Killing? 

Heres Some Fotos I Snapped Of A Memorial That Is Where Jesse Was Shot.
