Rasta Man Down
It was 12:34 pm on 23 July 2020 when shots rang out near Wright and Bremen in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee. The unlikeliest murder victim was 60 year old Bernell Trammell was easily recognizable with his dreads and his homemade Trump 2020 signs, just another of the “dregs” in society who was not afraid to talk politics or religion to those willing to listen. According to one friend, “He never tried to convert you or change you. He would tell you what he thought, listen to what you had to think and he would respect that.”
Bernell ran eXpressions Journal, was a Trump supporter and a Rasta street preacher as described in this article https://pmnightlynews.com/bernell-trammell-black-trump-supporter-killed-in-milwaukee/?fbclid=IwAR0ZJKS-VAFLvRC-rQ43hGMVNaY-DivB2A8J4obXg1zDlASkoNKDDLXLf5Y.
Amidst the violence on news broadcasts everywhere there were no local or nationwide protests against gun violence. There were no peaceful marches, not even a riot in his memory.
Outrage over the senseless murder of Bernell Trammell in broad daylight was voiced by Wisconsin GOP “No American should fear for their personal safety because of where they live or their political affiliation.” WISGOP called for the state’s district attorney and the US Attorney to open an investigation as the shooting may be politically motivated. https://www.oann.com/black-trump-supporter-fatally-shot-in-wis/
When will we stand up for what is right and stop the senseless slaughter of the innocent? It’s sad that Bernell Trammell’s name was added to a long list of victims of violent crime in America and we mouth the words “Black Lives Matter”……as we add another! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
