This tragedy is repeated daily in America. Women are murdered by men who claim to love them.

#LaurenMcCluskey was one of those victims.

My heart breaks for this family who lost the light of their life because a man wouldn't take no for an answer.

The past two hours have been our regular reminder of how close we always are to #gunviolence.

Shots fired on the block at the end of #ThisIsUs followed by police knocking on our door and The Wife having to detail events.

The front of our house is now a crime scene.
For the handful of people NOT inured to #gunviolence who asked how we were, we are ok. Someone is dead however and it is the third killing in front of our house in four years, so it's pretty unnerving.

I am frankly shocked that this tweet didn't go viral. Then again, maybe not.
Until gun violence in black neighborhoods like mine matters as much as in white neighborhoods there is never going to be any kind of resolution of America's gun problem.

#BrittanysLaw #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth After making many calls to our NYS Legislators today, I can not reiterate this enough. Violence is violence - Remove the word "Domestic". for just a moment and see that this bill is NOT adding new crimes to our legal books, these
crimes already exist!If any of these VIOLENT crimes were committed in a public place, charges would take place and penalties enforced, but for some reason when the word domestic is added, and the crime has taken place in the home, it is being looked at as "a new crime".
If anything, it should be worse,these crimes are against people that the other supposedly LOVES. #LoveShouldntHurt
