There is a Trayvon Martin situation in developing here in Birmingham.
A 13-year-old African-American youth attempted to rob a White couple in a Lexus SUV in a gated community in Southwest Birmingham.
The driver pulled a gun and shot Ja’Quares Walker multiple times. He ran a few feet, collapsed, and died at the scene.
The Birmingham News is describing this robbery suspect as a “slain teen” and a “13-year-old” and is running this puff photo provided by the family to stir up the black community. This is how Ja’Quares Walker presented himself to the world on his Facebook page:
Note: Trayvon Martin’s family has come to Birmingham to participate in a “hoodie freedom walk.”
