Prosecutor: 12-year-old killed for being young and black
Boy 'targeted because of what he looked like and what neighborhood he was walking in,' sheriff says

By LEVI PULKKINEN

It should have been a good day Alajawan Brown.

Twelve-years old and big for his age, Brown was so excited to play football. Money was the problem, a problem the 12-year-old had solved with sweat.

He cut grass around his Skyway neighborhood to pay the registration fee his parents, though both employed, couldn't quite cover. He picked up his brother's chores around the house to get enough together to buy the cleats, a sale pair he'd found at Wal-Mart.

April 29 was the day he bought those shoes. It should have been a good day for the boy.

Instead it was his last.

Brown was shot to death a block from his home in the Cedar Village Apartments, at 6240 S. 129th St. The alleged gunman didn't know him; in a perverse twist on the usual use of stereotypes, prosecutors claim the shooter looked at the boy and saw a gangster like himself, killed him for being young and black and too close to the scene of a shooting.

In a naked attempt to draw attention to a child killing that may have been missed, in part, because of the assumptions made when a children who look like Brown are gunned down, King County Sheriff Sue Rahr joined Prosecutor Dan Satterberg in announcing charges against Brown's alleged killer, a 35-year-old repeat felon named Curtis John Walker.

"It's easy to get complacent. It's easy to say this is just another case of gang violence," Rahr said.

"This wasn't a stray bullet," Rahr continued. "He was targeted because of what he looked like and what neighborhood he was walking in."

I hope no one says something along the lines of "what's new"

This is a sad story and yes it has happened quite to often. What is really sad is that I know the person's aunt of this little boy.
