It happened again! We are pissed off that Javon Jackson was killed in less than a day right after his graduation. This is ridiculous:

A day after proudly watching her son graduate from the University of Buffalo, a Bronx mom is now making plans to bury the brainy future engineer. Javon Jackson, 23, was shot and killed just after 3 a.m. Sunday outside a bar in Buffalo as he celebrated his graduation. Cops believe the gunman and three other men walked up behind Jackson and fired at least twice at the newly minted grad. “This was supposed to be my Mother’s Day gift,” grieving mom Theresa Williams, told reporters in Buffalo. “I was so proud of him.”

Williams and Jackson’s father, who flew in from Chicago, both attended their son’s graduation and were still upstate when they learned of the terrible news. Even hardboiled cops were jarred by the parents’ tragedy. “His father and mother were so proud to have their son graduate from college,” Chief of Detectives Dennis Richards said. “Now, they are distraught beyond words.” Jackson grew up in the Pelham Parkway Houses and graduated from Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics. Friends flooded an online memorial site with stories about his quick wit and big smile. Childhood friend Alexis Dorsett said Jackson was always more interested in his studies than fighting.

“He’s a good kid. Humorous, focused on school,” Dorsett said. “He’s a great kid. It’s hard.” Williams said she last saw her son alive when he went out to see some friends. “I never thought it would be the last time,” she said, fighting back tears. Jackson was crossing Main St., a stretch of road lined with bars full of students celebrating graduation, when he was gunned down. Police believe they may have caught the shooting on a surveillance camera.

F*ck a thug! Catch those idiots and get rid of this scum on our streets. We must stop this self abuse people. SMH

    Stories like this make me angry. Negative always finds its way to positive and turns the light off, while everyone just sits back and passes out RIP. We shouldn’t rest in peace when we keep glamourizing people like the ones who killed this child. The more thugs we let walk around sagging jeans, collecting guns in the trailer parks, rich kids we let get away with smaller crimes due to their money, baby mommas who don’t choose men who are working, viable citizens…. the more stories like this one and the murdering of our babies.

    We are not paying attention to mental illness in the community and lack of coping skills. We will be seeing more and more stories about men killing their families and then themselves. We will see more women killing their children and then going to the club to celebrate…

    this post has no color … the whole world has lost love and faith in themselves and family. The devil is winning.

    This is a damn shame! I hope his life was not in vain and I hope people will rise up. This brother worked hard to overcome the BS in the hood, and still was gunned down. I hope the people in the Bronx will not let this ride. The devil is a liar!

    DAMN that is some BS right there, usually stories like this don’t to me. I just chalk it up as it happens, but when the mom said it was supposed to be her mother’s day gift seeing him graduate, it struck a nerve.
