This young King that I got the chance to raise as if he was my own, lost his life to gun violence. 😩 These pass days... I keep getting visions of times when we lived under the same roof. One thing I know about him is that he had a very kind and fun heart. He did not deserve to loose his life like this. He JUST had a little girl! 😩 I'm just SO SICK of these babies with these damn GUNS! 😠 This HAS to STOP!! I lost my brother to senseless gun violence...now him. SMH With every bone in my body... I will speak out about this. I will always keep his and my brother's names ALIVE. 💯💯

On Monday evening Northern DC, children ran around, people chatted, and some men played dominoes on a bench.
Then the masked men drove up.
They exited a black Infiniti, police said, and opened fire indiscriminately, showering so many shots into the courtyard that one resident said there were “too many to count.” The crowd of about 15 or 20 people scattered in terror.
#MakiyahWilson, a 10-year-old heading to an ice cream truck, was hit, apparently in the chest. Makiyah’s mother, Donnetta Wilson, cried as she talked about her daughter on Tuesday morning. “She was an amazing little girl, an outstanding, bright 10-year-old,” Wilson said. “I just miss my daughter.” “She wanted to conquer the world,” she said.
Of the gunmen, she said: “They’re cowards. I just want justice for my daughter.
In a year when homicides in the District are up 46 percent over 2017 and gunfire has become all too common in some neighborhoods, the killing of Makiyah stood out. She was described as a “cool little girl” who loved art and puzzles. She attended D.C. Scholars Public Charter School and was going to enter the fifth grade. She was well-known in the neighborhood and wore a princess crown in recent photos. 😔🙏🏾 #gunviolence#PL#POPLIFE#Media#Entertainment#popculture#technology#photography#music#hollywood#fashion#film#NYC#Paris#Tokyo#revolt#VH1#twitter#Instagram#snapchat#hiphop#pop#TMZ#culture#youtube#bkdudee#washingtondc
This is a photo from the 800 block of N. Belnord Ave, the location where Davon Davis was killed. He is homicide # 141 in Baltimore in 2018. This is the 1st homicide in the Madison-Eastend neighborhood this year
About the Block: This block is part of a residential area in east Baltimore. The block features 2-story formstone rowhouses. Interestingly, the second floor on the photographed house looks like a rooftop deck. Towards the part of the block closest to the Northeast Corridor railroad tracks, there is a vacant lot that has become overgrown. A large balloon and candle memorial was put up for Davon on this part of the block. It is one of the largest I’ve seen since walking these blocks. The people who made this memorial must have loved him. Sad that another person armed with hate and a gun took Davon away from them
About the Victim: On July 9th at noon, Davon was found on this block suffering from gunshot wounds. He was transported to an area hospital where he unfortunately died from his injuries. He was only 21 years old. Rest easy Davon 🙏🏽

Daiana Ferreira de Oliveira was 6 or 7 when her mother first brought her and her sisters from their home in a poor neighborhood in northern #RiodeJaneiro to the majestic Municipal Theater for a production of “ #SwanLake.” The family stood out: a black single mother who made a living cleaning homes, guiding her daughters through crowds of mostly white theatergoers. “My mother said we needed to have culture,” Daiana said. “For her it wasn’t a matter of being rich or poor.” When Daiana earned her degree in physical education in 2012, the situation in Brazil was starting to look up. She soon began offering free classical ballet lessons at state-financed library in Manguinhos, a favela. “There is no set destiny,” she would tell her students. “Just because you were born in a favela does not mean your life needs to play out a certain way.” But optimism gave way to dread as #Brazil’s economy began contracting. A few months after the #Rio#Olympics wrapped up, the library closed. With the help of a locksmith, Daiana broke in, cleaned it up and installed her own padlock. Dado Galdieri took this photo of Isabelle Sande, left, and Isabela Peixoto on their way to class. For hundreds of girls, the ballet school has been a reprieve from the violence and poverty that afflicts Manguinhos. Swipe left to see Daiana and her ballet students. (Via: #NYtimes)
From what I hear This guy was cleaning windows of cars as he does every day to make a living.this was his job. He was falsy accused of trying to brake in the car by the cops. (No one made a call or anything, the cops just made that decision themselves). There were mad ppl telling the cops that he wasn't stealing, that they know him, that that's his job& he does it every day(still that wasn't enough for the cops) (proof of police brutality!!!). If there telling you that's his job leave him the fuck alone!! No, but y'all asses was bored and wanted to fuck with someone right?!! Many ppl tried to defend the guy by trying to stop him from being arrested. One cop got mad at these ppl trying to defend the guy so he decided to get his gun and shoot one of the ppl defending the poor guy IN THE FACE !
THE SECOND PIC IS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC !! Just a heads up
Even if it's not true and the guy was trying to brake in the car it still don't make it ok for the police to shoot that guy in the face ! They could of just arrested him and that's it.

#saniyahnicholson was only 9 years old and was shot in the head due to 2 groups having a shoot out at each other. Her dad left her in the car for only a few minutes and she was killed. No one should have to deal with their child being buried at 9. Rest well saniyah 💔
