Let’s play a game called “edit out the whitewashing in this Washington Post article:”
Khalid Jabara was worried.
Last year, his mother had been jogging through the family’s quiet Tulsa neighborhood when she was nearly killed in a vicious hit-and-run. Police quickly arrested Vernon Majors, who, according to a police report, confessed to the crime and even offered a motive, calling the Jabaras “filthy Lebanese.”
On May 25 of this year, however, Majors bonded out of jail.
That’s when he returned home — right next to the Jabaras.
Must be some of that “tough on crime” policy to let loose an attempted murderer.
On Friday, Khalid learned that his next-door neighbor, the man accused of harassing his family and attacking his mother, was now armed.
Not “attacking.” Attempting to murder. Let’s not beat about the bush here.
“Khalid called the police stating this man had a gun and that he was scared for what might happen,” his sister, Victoria Jabara Williams, wrote on Facebook. “The police came and told him there was nothing to be done.”
Police useless until there’s a body? Say it ain’t so.
