No good deed ever goes unpunished. Anyone who has actually seen Mr. Roberts work within the community and outside the community would never assume for a moment that this unfortunate situation was anything except self defense. Mr. Roberts was a target, and now is more than ever. Mr. Roberts understood his this position, however, instead of being afraid he continued to work, continued to do good, continued the movement and the vision that peace can be achieved. The truth will always rise to the surface. Hopefully, those in positions of power and influence will assist him and refrain from turning their backs on someone who had no problem working in the trenches, with the community. This man never hid in ivory towers, behind protection of law enforcement, or had a political agenda. Hopefully Denver can unite and stand up for a person that wanted nothing more than to create and maintain a safe space so children could grow up in an environment that was designed to steal the very souls of precious youth. My prayers go out to Mr. Roberts, his family, and the family of the victim. I believe that this is just a bump in the road for Prodigal Son, and that this very situation could possibly be the catalyst for the expansion and success of the program. No person is immune from violence, no matter how much you do to combat it. Self defense is a right, a simple right that was exercised in this unfortunate event.
