Shaquille Jones

“God has heard the cry of our youngsters, saying, ‘We are not safe; we are in trouble; we cannot be in the streets; we are not free.’”

This was priest Sully Guillaume-Sam, speaking at the funeral of Shaquille Jones, a 17-year-old student who was shot and killed a few blocks from the South Shore High campus in Canarsie on November 18th.

My article about Shaquille is running in the Canarsie Courier (subscriber-only for the next two weeks); there’s also a slightly longer version here.
