    May the souls of the departed ones rest in perfect peace(Amen). I’d hope the killer will be handed down appropriate judgement. The racial attack against the black seems to be a no end in sight. Efforts aimed at addressing the problem haven’t deterred perpetrators from carrying out their dastardly act. The US federal government seems not to be doing enough either.
