Does That Make It Right?
A reporter by the name of Alex Wiggles worth wrote an article titled “Kimble’s Past”. Maurice Kimble is a former victim that was recently shot and killed outside the restaurant of PYT. According to, Alex Wigglesworth “Kimble was scheduled July 18 to face charges of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment following an arrest in November, according to court documents. He was accused of violating the probation handed down to him in a separate case five years ago. In the incident Kimble was charged with criminal conspiracy to commit robbery inflicting serious bodily injury, theft, assault, reckless endangerment and firearms. He pleaded guilty to robbery with the threat of immediate serious injury and was sentenced two to four years in prison with probation.” However does this make it right that Maurice Kimble life was taken away?
Although, Kimble had a troubled past does it make it right for another man to take away his life. The article stated that Kimble had pleaded guilty and in exchange did his time for what he did wrong. He paid his duty in prison for a crime that took place five years ago. As a result, his actions that took place five years ago should not be placed in an article. Although, he was charged with two different cases neither one of his charges consisted of homicides. In addition, his role in this crime is the victim. Therefore, “Kimble’s Past” shows no importance of what took place June 11, 2012.
In conclusion, Kimble has a one year old son that no longer has a father figure in his life. The recent charges that may have put Kimble in jail in November would have only consisted of time. There is no substitute for absence. Also, another person’s life that is taken away should not be considered appropriate because, of their past. The justice system is not a gun and the hands of another man. If that is the case why are police officers, lawyers and highly paid judges getting paid and what are they working for?
