Today is the 5th year anniversary of my sonâ€™s murder. At approximately 1130 a.m., Ricarrlo Porter in my home, pointed an assault weapon at my son and shot him point blank 9 times, 5 times to the body center. The 10th shot whizzed over my head as I came from the kitchen to question why blanks were being shot in my living room. What I saw was my beloved son crumpled to the floor, dying. I bent to the floor, embraced my son and begged him not to die. He took one last breathe without words and then he was gone.
Iâ€™m running for the second highest office in the State of California. Included in my platform is a demand for amendment of 3 Strikes to violent felonies only, an end to the death penalty and an end to the bogus war on drugs. <more>
