On this past Monday evening, outside of a Dollar General Store in Charleston, West Virginia, 15-year-old James Means, was shot and killed by William Ronald Pulliam, 62, police said.
Means, like Emmett Till and Jordan Davis and Trayvon Martin before him, did nothing to ever even warrant a confrontation from Pulliam. Witnesses claim that what set Pulliam off was that Means accidentally bumped into him while entering the store.
After Pulliam left the store, the two exchanged words a second time, and Pulliam shot the teen twice in the abdomen, leaving him to die, then proceeded to go home, eat dinner, then go hang out at a friend’s house, according to a criminal complaint.
After Pulliam’s arrest on Tuesday morning, police said that he expressed no remorse whatsoever for killing the teen, but simply said, “The way I look at it, that’s another piece of trash off the street.”
Seems to me that Mr. Pulliam is more than a bit backwards about just who constitutes trash. I just don’t have any more grief right now, I can’t afford it. I am fucking furious. I am fucking tired. I am so fucking heartsick, I wish I had no heart. What little of it is left, goes out to the family, friends, and all loved ones of James’s. This is a terrible loss, there are no words, and there is no justice.
