On Friday evening, a much less than human, an animal (apologies to all animals), saw a random police officer, on duty, performing the innocuous act of filling his police car full of gas. The response to this act was to pump the officer full of lead — he was shot in the back of the head repeatedly.
After the officer’s body dropped, the evil anarchist thug walked up to the body, laying lifelessly on the ground, and cowardly fired several more rounds into Harris County sheriff’s deputy Darren H. Goforth, assuring that his wife, Kathleen Goforth would be a widow and his two children wouldn’t have a father.
The cop killer, who this writer believes was no doubt inspired by race-hustling victimhood pimps like Barack Obama, Eric Holder, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton, and the #BlackLivesMatters communist front group, whose anti-cop rhetoric and race card abuse has inspired and enabled desperate losers across America to blame their sorry failed lives on something other than themselves and the Democrat Party, a party that has purposely destroyed the black family in order to get them dependent on government, i.e., Democrats for their sustenance for eternity.
The wife of the fallen deputy, brutally murdered because he was a police officer — and possibly because he was the wrong skin pigmentation — has issued a statement about the matter to KPRC News, giving a heartwrenching account of her husband’s life, a life which was tragically, suddenly snuffed about by a progressively brainwashed thug.
“There are no words for this,” Kathleen Goforth admits in her statement. “All the language that I know is inadequate for what I want to express,” she wrote.
Mrs. Goforth refused to describe her newly deceased husband’s life in terms of the usual “clichés and platitudes” that would be normal under these horrific circumstances.
“I can do better than that,” she wrote. “He deserves better than that.”
Mrs. Goforth, now sadly a widow, unnecessarily so, went on to give a glimpse into her now late husband’s soul and character:
“My husband was an incredibly blend of toughness and gentility. He was loyal…fiercely so. And he was ethical; the right thing to do is what guided his internal compass. I admired this quality, perhaps, the most. For that was what made Darren good. And he was good. So, if people want to know what kind of man he was…This is it. He was who you wanted for a friend, a colleague, and a neighbor.”
Mrs. Goforth said that she was truly “blessed” to be part of Darren Goforth’s life before it was abruptly and barbarically ended. Kathleen Goforth described her prior life with her husband as a “privilege” and called officer Goforth her “best friend.”
“However, it was I who was blessed so richly that I had the privilege of calling him my husband and my best friend,” she wrote.
Please read Mrs. Goforth’s statement in it’s entirely below, via KPRC:
Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter if you want to stop the progressive left’s war against our law enforcement officers.
While progressive leftists and the leftstream media will predictably take one of two tactics on this racially charged issue — either utter silence, or, more than likely, “never allowing a serious crisis to go to waste” by using it as an opportunity to attack the Bill of Rights, as they’ve cheerfully done repeatedly in an attempt to turn America into a police state — a country where only a brutal, tyrannical government controlled by them has the weapons of protection.
The blame should really go to the professional racial grievance industry profiteers — the Obama, Sharpton, Holder and Jesse Jackson’s of the world, for doing everything within their power to incite a race war.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family of Deputy Goforth. As of this moment, the campaign has raised nearly $21,000 of their $30,000 goal in 15 hours. If you wish to contribute, please visit here.
