CAN A VILLAIN BECOME A HERO?
Society has fallen.
In a statement released by the savage-loving Legal Aid Society, who represented Edwards on previous charges, “Our hearts ache for Mr. Edwards’s family and his community, who suffer these tragedies regularly and more than any community should endure. City Hall and the NYPD must work towards ways to de-escalate these situations that too often end in gunfire and loss of life.”
Not much more needs to be said in regards to just how far of a depth society has fallen. The audacity of the Public Defenders office to make a claim that the NYPD needs to do more to de-escalate, when the officers did everything humanly possible to do just that. The insensitivity to the officers involved in a volatile situation such as this shooting, to push their false narrative and further the divide between the neighborhood they serve and those who protect it.

The Legal Aid statement goes on to say that the “NYPD has told its side of the story,” and now it’s time to release all the body camera footage and release the names of the officers involved. The Edwards family, the statement says, “is entitled to a full and objective account of this incident.” Further statements by the organization hint to the idea that the NYPD will most likely doctor the video.
There is just no winning with this group.
Here is an angle for them to take a look at, from the heart of a dedicated member of the NYPD, who is free of the chains that bind me, to prevent an unfiltered and public response. Edwards was an absolute savage, an animal who had just abused a woman. She was certainly entitled to not getting her ass beat or to be mentally abused. Edwards pulled a gun on a group of warriors who clearly had more heart than he did. Thankfully, Edwards lost that fight.
Hopefully, for all the pain he had caused in life, he suffered in his final moments. He provided as much in life to this world as he will in death: absolutely nothing. He served a stint in prison for shooting two people in 2004.
Since getting out of jail, he:
- was accused of shooting up a house
- was accused of domestic violence
- resisted arrest
- shot at cops
Real pillar of society, eh?
Let’s not make this the moment when people speak of how he was, “Gonna bees sumtin …” or “…turned his life round…” or “… never done nuffin.” Let this not be the time we air his confirmation picture, grade school picture or a picture from his most recent court date where he wore that brand new shirt, complete with the package creases. No family members wearing shirts with images of the POS on them.
Let this not be the ghetto lottery payday so many are hoping for.
Instead, let this be the day that people wake up and realize that these animals and the organizations that empower them are destroying NYC and America. Focus on the reality of what happened and the fact that this fool took his own life through his choices about a course of action, at the end.

A moment of clarity in crazy times, a chance to say out loud that people are responsible for their own actions. Perhaps a moment where a community comes together for a wounded officer, who was shot protecting its people.
Let’s be a society that rallies behind the women that Edwards victimized.
Let’s make this a greater discussion about why certain subsections of society embrace individuals like Edwards. A glance into a culture that respects and appreciates violence in such a fashion. Let’s allow today to be the day we open the conversation about the segment of our society that is unable to process personal accountability. They prefer to always be the victim.
At the bottom line, it’s all about saving just ONE life.
