November 20th 2021st in Omaha

November 20th 2021st Walgreen’s parking lot, Omaha Nebraska 7:30 p.m. Police in cars have stopped pursuing Gang Member A aka GMA. A young woman’s car door gets pulled open. GMA yells “Get the F……. out!” She thinks he is joking. He grabs her and throws her out of the car. It is HER car. Her purse. Her stuff. She is young, and upset. She jumps back in, on his lap, trying to get her keys. He tosses her back out and runs over her driving foot. Breaking it in sixteen places. She is barely eighteen. A senior in high school. Young and helplessly naïve. A police helicopter which had continued pursuit of GMA captured this on video. The entire episode recorded for the watching. I would have not run across this tale if it had not been my granddaughter. But it was. She had a two hour surgery today. Morphine is the only thing that gives her relief. I did not think it was possible to hate a person I have never met. But at this moment I despise Gang Member A.

And rightly so! Gang Member A needs to have someone take a hammer to his big toe...over and over and over...until it is a bloody mass of tissue. No, maybe to another part of his body...that would do the trick! No mercy for monsters who cause such pain to an innocent.

My granddaughter wrote a 23 page letter to this guy yesterday telling him how he has hurt her life. I hope it was therapeutic.

She was never in a relationship with him. He was a convicted felon who had served 4 years in prison already who happened to target her because he wanted to take her car.
