Miami, Florida. 17 year-old Trevon Johnson decides to break into a stranger’s home to burglarize them. Woken in the middle of the night, the frightened homeowner legally protects herself and her family and shoots and kills Johnson. A tragedy, no doubt. But instead of accepting his death, the man’s family have launched a shocking attack on the woman who acted in self-defense…
Here’s just some of what the family had to say:
Johnson’s cousin Nautika Harris, said, “You have to look at it from every child’s point of view that was raised in the hood. You have to understand, how’s he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school? You have to look at it from his point of view.”
Nautika goes on: “I don’t care if she have her gun license or any of that. That is way beyond the law, way beyond. He was not supposed to die like this. He had a future ahead of him. Trevon had goals. He was a funny guy, very big on education, loved learning.”
Wow. Yeah. He sounds like a really nice dude, doesn’t he…? You know, apart from that whole breaking into someone’s house thing.
It’s a shocking story. Here’s more on it:
