POLICE STATE: Albuquerque Police Kill Third Person In Five Weeks

A 19-year-old woman was shot and killed by police in Albuquerque, New Mexico early Monday after being suspected of stealing a truck. This week’s death of Mary Hawkes now marks the third time in five weeks that Albuquerque cops have killed a civilian.

Friends said Hawkes was homeless and her parents died when she was a child. Those who knew her said she’s an example of a tragedy that can happen when youth don’t have certain resources available when they need them.

“She meant a lot to everybody,” said friend Luchrisa Price. “Anybody that knew her knew she was a great person.”

Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden said Hawkes was an auto theft suspect. Police said during a foot chase she pulled a gun on police.

An officer then fired, leaving her dead on the sidewalk.

“I busted out in tears,” said Price. “I just thought it wasn’t fair. She had a long life to live and that wasn’t even what was supposed to happen.”

Carolina Acuna-Olvera taught Hawkes music at the Juvenile Detention Center and calls herself Hawke’s godmother.

“She is my daughter,” Acuna-Olvera said. “She didn’t really have any connection with her foster people. She lost both of her parents when she was 8.”

I’m going to copy the beginning of this fundly: 

https://fundly.com/savannah-s-stolen-moment-campaign#gallery/1 

I couldn’t get through much of it without crying, and donating. 

I’m sorry if this is very raw, but my baby girl died this morning.

Please believe me when I say that Savannah, who was 2-and-a-half, was loved every second that she was alive. My wife and I fed her the healthiest foods, gave her that extra-fancy milk with the DHA in it, enrolled her in a little gym class and showered her with countless hugs and kisses. As a dad, I practiced every day until I finally (mostly) figured out how to make pigtails. She was a healthy, happy child - this is not how things are supposed to end.

We’re not sure what happened. We woke up this morning, and she did not.

If you’ve never dealt with loss, I sincerely hope that you never do. If you have, then you know the worst feeling is the sense of helplessness, of frustration. The only thing you can do, it seems, is admit that you have no control. And when you’re a parent - the person who is supposed to be able to make everything better - that’s a horrifying thing to admit.

If you’ve read this far, I thank you. I won’t take up much more of your time.

One thing that does give me solace is that when “Savvy” was with us, we shared lots of unplanned memories with her. A surprise trip to an indoor playground, an unexpected cookie at Starbucks, a walk along the beach on a random Tuesday afternoon - and I came to refer to these as “Stolen Moments.”

I’m feeling very powerless right now. But people have already begun asking how they can help, and in the days ahead I don’t want a bunch of money to be thrown away on flowers. I’d recommend a charity for people to make donations in her honor, but I’m very weary of the way many charities take your money and use them to pay overhead. The only way I can handle this powerlessness, I figure, is with the power to give someone else joy.

So, here’s my idea: If you’d like to make a donation in Savannah’s name - any size - please do it here. And my dream is to take every penny of those donations, locate a special little girl somewhere in the world - and give her and her family the “Stolen Moment” that we’ll never be able to make with our baby Savannah.

I will find a family somewhere - someone I have never met before and has no connection to anyone I know - and help them make a Stolen Moment. The only 3 requirements are that they have a little girl, that they very clearly love her, and that they don’t have the financial means to typically do this sort of thing.

Perhaps we can send them to Disneyland, and get them the greatest hotel room ever. Perhaps we could fly them somewhere. I want to give some little person a moment with her Mom and Dad that she’ll remember forever - a moment that they would never have without us doing this.

Any money raised above the costs of the “Stolen Moment” will be put into a college fund for that child.

Walmart Is Downsizing Its Superstores and Putting Apartments on Top

Fort Totten, a neighborhood in northeastern D.C., is about to be home to a new type of Walmart. At 125,000 square feet, it’s not quite as small as the other miniature stores Walmart has opened up elsewhere, but it’s unique for another reason: 345 residential units will be stacked above the ground-floor podium occupied by the megastore.
