Last night, black-ish brought us into the middle of the tough conversations black families have been forced to have more and more recently. It did so with the utmost thought and humor, all the while giving nuanced, important depth to the issues of police brutality — including the characterization of police.
On the 20th of October 2007 in Ohio, 16 year old Daniel Petric stole his fathers gun. Petric then walked up behind his parents, Mark and Susan Petric, who were relaxing on the sofa and said, “Would you close your eyes, I have a surprise for you”. After shooting both parents, he attempted to make it look like a murder suicide. However, his sister Heidi, her husband and a friend returned home and witnessed it. Mark survived.
The motive was that Mark took away his Halo 3 xbox 360 game.
Daniel became obsessed with the Halo series after spending time with a friend, when he contractedstaphylococcus he became more housebound and snuck out to by the game, his family refused to allow violent video games in the home. Susan reportedly caught him playing it and told mark, he then put it in the safe with his gun.
It’s claimed Daniel spent 18 hours playing it. Even when he attempted to escape the crime scene, he took Halo with him.

Asian-American parents and children shared four minutes of eye contact. Things got emotional.
It has always been hard to be an immigrant in America. Such people overcome all obstacles and hazards to devote their lives to their families and especially to children. They have seen everything themselves and know what it’s like to be differentiated in the society and by the society. This beautiful experiment shows that our parents need more attention and support from us, their children, especially after they prove everybody that they deserve to live in this country.
