The mainstream media has spent the last week reporting on the deaths of celebrities like George Michael, Carrie Fisher, and Debbie Reynolds. However, there was another death this week that they are refusing to report on.
The Chatanooga Times Free Press reported that Keoshia Ford was just 13 years-old when she was shot in the head during a shootout between two gangs in Highland Park on March 17, 2012. An innocent bystander, Keoshia was playing with friends when the shooting started.
Though Keoshia survived the shooting, she was comatose and needed a nurse’s care 24/7. She could no longer talk, eat, or even sit up, and she spent the next four years that way as her mother Lekeshia Matthews clung to the hope that she would one day recover.
“It’s been — oh my God, it’s been rough,” Matthews said. “It’s been a rough journey. When she got shot, the things she did, she couldn’t do anymore. She couldn’t walk, talk, couldn’t do anything for herself. It was hard to see your child suffer like that. If she was in pain, she couldn’t tell me, she couldn’t do anything.”
Her hopes were raised this year when Keoshia started responding to voices. She began to shake her head to say yes or no, and she could squeeze Matthews’ hand when told to.
Sadly, Keoshia also began to struggle with respiratory issues in the last few months. Early Tuesday morning at around 5:30 a.m., Keoshia passed away.
Sadly, stories like this have become all too common in Barack Obama’s America. Though Obama always comments on white-on-black shootings, he continues to ignore the epidemic of black-on-black crime. The mainstream media has followed his lead on this, which is why nobody will be reporting on Keoshia’s story.
