Korryn Gaines: Life After Death One Year Later
Hi Korryn, I don’t know what life is like after death, so I hope you are doing well. Your family misses you like crazy. Especially on the first of the month. Your mom, your Uncle Jermaine, and the father of your child Kareem is always sharing pictures of you with kind words on Facebook to honor your memory. Your friends and family never miss an opportunity to jump on the post to engage.
Korryn, you should know that you didn’t die in vein. Your neighbor Ramone Coleman was home throughout the entire standoff between you and the police and he gave us an interview. We were all shocked to read that you told the cops to back off and you would surrender but the impatient and blood thirsty cops didn’t comply. To add insult to your death, the Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger didn’t see anything wrong with the actions of the police and decided not to press charges. Even though the states attorney’s decision was bullcrap… Your family is not backing down. Your mom filed a 4 million dollar wrongful death lawsuit against Baltimore County and Officer Ruby. 2 million against Baltimore County and 2 million against that trigger happy cop. Your neighbor Ramone Coleman has a case against the cops for what transpired that day because they put him and his daughter in harm’s way and so he is suing the county as well. You will be happy to know that your son Kodi was not seriously injured during the shootout and he survived. Another thing you should know is that Colin Kaepernick, the former Quarterback of the San Franciso 49ers had an awakening last year and used the NFL platform to protest against police brutality by not standing up for the USA national anthem. Unfortunately, after your death, there were more cases of cops shooting down civilians and Collin decided to use his platform to bring the brutality to the spotlight. A large segment of the white community was pissed and turned his silent protest against the cops into being against the military. You know how it is, and of course, all the Sambos’ came out showing their asses.
I’m gone end this post with a statement from your mother Rhonda.
Today, August 1st, 2017 marks the one year anniversary of your death. So I reached out to your mom and asked her to reflect on your death and share her thoughts. Here is what she told me…
I am ok at this moment. My emotions present in waves. This is a very sad day for many. But every day is a sad day for me! Every day waking up to the reality of my child being murdered! Her children without a mother, my children without their sister, aunts, and uncles without their niece, and so on. It’s a daily struggle that I must continue to fight through. So it hasn’t gotten easier, and I’m not sure it ever will. Thanks David for checking on me. You have been an awesome voice and supporter for my Korryn.
