The story of Tamir Rice shouldn’t be forgotten amid all this.
Officer Darren Wilson has been drawing a paycheck from the police department ever since August and has made over $500,000 in online fundraising.
In the book of 1 Kings, Ahab and his wife Jezebel conspire to murder a poor man named Naboth because Ahab covets his vineyard; after Naboth is murdered Ahab takes possession of his properties and inheritance.
Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, “Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who lives in Samaria. There he is, in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone down to take possession of it. You shall speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Have you murdered and also profited?”’
