R.I.P Adrian

A year ago in May 2009 14 year-old Adrian Johnston would become a victim of many shootings that began taking place in the southwest end of the city.

One year later, his killer is still walking the streets and justice has not been served. Adrian, was gunned down in a hydro field off Scarlett Rd. north of St. Clair Ave. W. a year ago. There was fear of a violent conflict between two rival gangs, the 5 Point Generalz and the Gatorz, that caught victims in the middle.

Again we have mothers crying because these young black men are being gunned down and there's just no answers.The mothers of Adrian and Jarvis St. Remy continue to remember the young men the raised to be gentleman and celebrate with friends, families and strangers two lives cut too short. Vigils held these past few days reflected on the life of these young men gone too soon. As the days get harder for them not having answers, they will continue to let their children's memories live on.
