The Key To Saving America’s Black Youth: North Jersey Town Actions Textbook Example On How To End Gun Violence In Wake Of Preteen’s Killing

It was only suppose to have been a short trip to a local convenience store for some apples. For a 12 year old little girl named after the first book of the Holy Bible, it would be like a curse of the forbidden fruit as depicted in the story of Adam and Eve, as the trip to the store turned tragic, and the last time many who knew and loved young Genesis Rincon would ever see her alive again. The cops have name three suspects who they say exchanged gunfire, ultimately striking the preteen in the head. Her sister who accompanied her to the store could only watch in horror as Genesis bleed to death on a Patterson New Jersey street. None of the young men in custody who range in age from 19-21 have accepted responsibility for young Genesis’ slaying. While the cops sort it all out, an innocent child has now been interned at her final resting place. Another tragic story highlighting how black youth continuously fall prey to gun violence.

Patterson’s notoriously violent fourth ward is not unique when it comes to gun violence. Other towns across the nation such as Wilmington Delaware, Richmond Virginia, Newark and Camden New Jersey, along with Detroit and Flint Michigan, Chicago Illinois, Atlanta and Stone Mountain Georgia just to name a few, have all arrived as American cities with serious violent crime that have suddenly began to snuff out the life of young children of color at an extremely alarming rate. In many instances the killings are a direct result of a kid simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and being caught in the cross hairs of gun violence when rival factions clash on the streets of our nation, resulting in a hail of gunfire which seems to erupt without warning, and claiming the lives of innocent unsuspecting children such as in the Genesis Rincon killing. Genesis’ killing garnered national attention for reasons I’ll explain later in this article, but gun violence in other U.S. cities have reached epidemic and biblical proportions causing politicians to consider seeking help from state and federal military personnel to insure public safety.

Chicago is a classic example of gun violence gone completely out of control. During the same week that the Genesis child was gunned down, Chicago had one of the most violent weekends in the town’s history. During a span of 84 hours, 87 people were shot in Chicago while 14 of those were fatal shootings. There is a trend of multiple shootings in Chicago which cops and politicians seemingly are unable to curtail. The open air gun violence in Chi-town is so severe that at the heights of Chicago’s Gangland era, where violent thugs like Al Capone and Buggs Moran were major crime figures, the highest volume of killings only reached 43 people over a thirty day period. The shootings, and other violence in modern day Chicago have the potential of obtaining those figures in a single weekend. The violence has left Mayor Emanuel no other alternative but to consider turning policing authority over to state and national military personnel. Chicago appears to be headed toward curfews while soldiers patrol the streets of Chi-town with M-16 assault rifles, in an effort to protect the public and stop the killing.

The minimal media coverage that the Chicago shooting epidemic has obtained raises a volume of questions as to why shootings and killings have spiked in the past five years. Politicians and police officials blame the violence on drug war turf battles. The Mexican cartels reportedly have set up shop in Chicago and other mid west towns, causing major problems for many undeveloped low income and impoverished communities that produce young people who see the drug trade as the only viable remedy to overcome poverty, and to provide for their struggling families. The other concern that many observers are asking, is where are the weapons coming from. The availability of fire power on the streets of Chicago and other U.S. cities is simply staggering, and while the NRA and other gun rights advocacy groups continue to beat the drum for 2nd Amendment Rights to bare arms, young children are being gunned down all across America.

The epidemic of gun violence across America has landed in suburbia U.S.A. and other small urban communities, like Wilmington Delaware, whose murder rate has spiked so severely that there has been two documentaries about the violence broadcast nationally. In one epic discussion related to Wilmington’s dying youth, a mother galvanizes the plight that urban youth face with a harsh reality. “So many funerals,” the mother decries, seemingly posing the obvious question. When will the killing of young black children end. Whether it’s in Chicago, Wilmington, Richmond Virginia, or Flint Michigan, the killing of young people on the violent streets of America seem to arise from the ashes of a post civil rights era that wants saw black America united, fighting for equal pay, decent housing, and fair treatment. Those days are now long gone, and for the most part, so is the “Dream” that Dr. Martin Luther King once exclaimed. Many young black children live in poor communities where gun violence and a systemic culture of crime reigns as the most prevalent aspect of urban life that many school aged children must face on a daily basis. The reality of a child knowing that they could be gunned down in their own community on their way to or from school, is a normality that children have become far to familiar with.

So whose doing the killing? Many of the young men embroiled in the criminal justice system with serious gun, and violence charges are from the very communities where tragedies like the Rincon kid occurred. It’s tough to even consider that a young man would fire a gun indiscriminately with no regard for the lives of others who may be in proximity of such violence. For years violent criminals who terrorize communities have killed innocent children who were simply engaged in child’s play within their communities when gunfire erupted, leaving behind a vicious cycle of carnage, and grieving families forced to bury their young. In many instances these gun toting violent thugs often times escape capture, while those within the community who witness such horrible crimes stand by silently and never communicate to the authorities what they know. While the tragedy of senseless gun violence should awaken society to continuously fight to have such perpetrators jailed and brought to justice, those who reside in the communities where these kinds of crimes occur regularly have an even greater obligation to their children, family, community, and to themselves to make diligent efforts to protect their kids, and help end the vicious cycle of gun violence within their communities.

Not only that though, some of the homes where these violent criminals emerge are very instrumental in aiding the perpetuation of violent culture. The value systems, if any at all, that many adults instill within young black people are in many instances the very premise from which violence originates. Also, many of these same kids lack basic guidance, and are permitted to roam the streets at all times of night without any reprisals from their parents or guardians. Young people who are given so much freedom with access to the streets are destined for trouble. So, while many within the black community are angered by the level of senseless violence and those cowardice thugs who commit such heinous crimes, a mirror would serve as the perfect juxtaposition to reveal exactly where the majority of the blame for such violent culture should rightfully be placed. These ignorant, violent, uneducated, and murderous black bastards derived from within the black community itself, and any efforts being made to quell such violence must establish on the very same streets in the black community where these crimes occur, as ground zero to even began to end the culture of violence epidemic.

All of Black America could gain valuable insight from the town of Patterson New Jersey into how to effectively deal with violent thugs who shoot and kill our innocent babies. By the time Jhymiere Moore, 19, who was accompanied by his mother, turned himself in on July 8, 2014, cops had already issued a warrant for his arrest. The warrant developed on the heels of a volume of tips from within the public that fingered Moore as one of the potential suspects in the case responsible for killing young Genesis Rincon.  In fact all three suspects now in custody for the Rincon youth slaying were aided by tips from the public. Once word spread within the Patterson community about the killing of the 12-year-old little girl, hundreds of citizens marched on Town Hall demanding justice for young Genesis. It was an act rarely seen related to a killing within the black community, but also maybe an indication that the reign of terror once enacted upon poor black people by violent gun toting thugs is now over. The code on the street is to keep silent, and at all cost, never talk to the police. In Patterson New Jersey at least, that old “code of silence” means nothing when our children are being slaughtered within their own community for no other provocation other being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

The actions of Paterson New Jersey citizens is crystal clear. Through the leadership of local clergy and other community leaders in Patterson, the message was sent that you will not kill innocent young people in our community without consequence. The killing of this young child has cause tremendous community outreach, and the churches have launched the G-12 movement (named after 12-year-old Genesis). The movement involves the church ad other community groups adopting a 12 block span in the community where the Rincon youth was killed. The cowards were turned in to the cops, and by my best estimation, that’s exactly how things should turn out every time an innocent kid is gunned down senselessly. Turn them in, and maybe they’ll think twice before firing a gun on a crowded street where children roam. They deserve to be locked up forever, and our community should stop enabling these violent bastards.
