Rev Jesse Jackson Senior feels Christopher Dorner's pain
Fresh from publicly inserting himself into the shooting death of another young black Chicago adolescent, this time a student who had, a few days earlier, returned home after participating in the inaugural festivities with her school's marching band, Rev Jesse Jackson Senior, one of the nation's self appointed black pastors, jumped into the widely publicized case of alleged Los Angeles cop killer plus other murders.
While uncharacteristically quiet about federal charges against his politician son and politician daughter in law, Jackson shot out a tweet and a longer Facebook message to Christopher Dorner feeling his pain...and then asking him to turn himself in to one of Jackson's self appointed representatives.
I understand your feelings of hurt and pain. I make this plea to you to stop spreading the pain, the hurt, and the fear. Please stop. Don't take any more lives.
Christopher, your mother is distraught and deeply concerned for your safety. There are many good and credible people in Los Angeles who will help you. Danny J. Bakewell Sr. (The Los Angeles Sentinel's Executive Publisher/CEO) ,Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Kenneth Ulmer and Rev. Charles Singleton are all individuals I know personally. I promise that they will gladly receive you.
In the comments section, Dorner is receiving a lot of support.
I hope that the victims' families did not receive similar "feeling their pain" messages. The family of Monica Quan, an innocent slaughtered by the pain-feeling Dorner would get no peace from Jackson.
Meanwhile, back home in Chicago, after the widely publicized funeral of the young student with the pleas of stop the violence, stop the killings still fresh, the black on black shootings continued.
When will Jackson and others address one of the core causes of these shootings? And no, they're not guns, which are mere passive instruments in the hands of those who use them. But Jackson and others will blame the guns, and the schools and anything else instead of facing up to the more complex--and controversial--situation of missing fathers, young parenthood, willing dependency and professional victimhood.
BTW, has he spoken to the young child he had with another woman recently? Just asking.
