Carl Morse, the father of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake, who was shot dead by his girlfriend’s police officer father, said he is willing to forgive his son’s killer at the funeral service in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The Jeremy Lake story is slightly different than the other black men and boys murdered by police in the last 30 days, in that the cops who killed him were off duty, and the parents of his girlfriend. But doesn’t that just highlight the problem? They murdered him on introduction. To me this underscores the fact that racism is so deeply imbedded in the psyche of the police, everywhere.
