everyone say goodbye to will sims.
this story came at such an ironic time that i’ll get into later.
it really made me have to look myself,
and even the foxhole,
a lot differently because there will probably be more of “this”.
so an f-bi sent me this tragic story from the ny daily news.
i had to share it with the foxhole…
Just days after Donald Trump’s election, in El Sobrante, Calif., about 20 miles north of San Francisco, something truly terrible happened. I honestly believe it must be viewed in the context of the wave of hate crimes that swept our nation immediately after Trump’s win. Except most of us are just now learning that it took place.
Will Sims, 28, an accomplished musician and vocalist, widely hailed as a gentle, peaceful, gifted soul, was murdered in a vicious hate crime. He was targeted, robbed, beaten, then shot, and left on the street to die.When the police found him on the street on Nov. 12, he was already dead.
Police have openly stated that Sims was targeted by the three white men who killed him because he was black. Daniel Porter-Kelly, 31, of Richmond, has already been arrested and charged with murder, robbery, and a hate crime for targeting the young musician because of his race. The two additional white men who are wanted for the crime are still on the loose and expected to be armed and dangerous.
The mother of one of the men was also arrested on suspicion of interfering with the investigation.
While many knew Sims as an accomplished pianist, he also played the guitar, saxophone, violin and was a respected singer with a deep, rich voice.
that is absolutely horrific,
but it’s a reality now that orange jackal is president.
you know what’s crazy?
one of my home vixens called me the other day begging me to be safe.
she told me how her home fox was jumped by some snow jackals a week ago.
they were called him a “faggot” and told him go back to his country.
he didn’t press charges out of fear.
i kid you not,
but it legit had me a little shook.
i hope they find justice for will sims.
he had so much promise and they took his life away for nothing.
i don’t understand what they got out of killing him.
you know i’m always praying for you.
i wanted to share some tips i follow that may keep you protected out here:
1 – make sure you know you who are really hooking up with off chat sites.
don’t invite any randoms to your crib.
if you decided to take them home/hotel
always meet at a police station first.
this isn’t 100% effective and meeting strangers is always a risk.
2 – ( x uber ) and ( x lyft ).
if you are going somewhere you aren’t familiar with,
or you are leaving somewhere late,
utilize those apps to get you home or to a nearest train station.
do not walk in any strange neighborhoods alone.
3 – let someone know where you are going.
tell one person at least so you create a trail.
4 – your phone is a gps.
our phones are not just for texting/selfies/live videos.
at a press of a button,
you can send your friends in a text your exact location.
i know for my iphone,
you can send your location to someone for a certain time or forever.
the apple watch now has a feature you can press a button to call 911.
it will also send your emergency contacts a message as well.
5 – update your medical id information on your phone.
if something happens,
it has all the info in that to let medical officials know.
i think that’s it.
if there is anything else you follow in your day to day life,
please leave it in the comments.
the foxhole needs some new life hacks to keep us safe.
be careful out there.
i love ya.x LEARN MORE ABOUT WILL SIMS
