How could they have been so wrong? I mean, for all the supposed “witnesses” to Jazmine Barnes’ seemingly random killing to be 100% wrong is incomprehensive in any other setting and in any other scenario.
What we thought we knew
And by that, I mean days ago, not decades ago.
It was 6:30 A.M. Sunday, December 30, 2018. It was still dark in Houston Texas. LaPorsha Washington drove her four daughters, including 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, in the family’s silver car to the local Walmart near Houston. Jazmine was seated in the back directly behind her mom.
“Fifteen-year-old Alexis Dilbert, Washington’s oldest daughter, was sitting in the front passenger seat when she noticed a red truck pull up beside their vehicle. She described the driver as a blue-eyed white man wearing a black hoodie and looking sickly. The family, who is black, didn’t give the truck a second thought until it changed lanes, moving around from behind to the driver’s side of Washington’s vehicle and the driver opened fired. Washington was hit by gunfire in her arm. Jazmine was shot in the head and died at the scene.”
