And the predictable response of the Racism-Industrial-Complex.
It’s the last time that her family would see her alive.
While going for a routine jog in a park in her Howard Beach neighborhood in the borough of Queens, New York, she was viciously beaten, raped vaginally and anally, and then strangled to death.
It would be months before the NYP would find her rapist and killer, 20 year-old Chanel Lewis of Brooklyn. Lewis told police: “She didn’t do anything. I was just mad at the time. I beat her to let my emotions out. I never really meant to hurt her. It just happened.”
As I write this, it is exactly one year later to the day that the Vetranos lost their Karina. Of his family’s emotional condition as of the first anniversary of the unthinkable, the slain woman’s father told Fox News: “We’re not doing good, we’re not doing well at all.” He added: “Other than the fact that we lost our daughter, and our lives have ended, no, nothing else has changed.”
Notice, it isn’t just Karina’s life that has been taken. From the perspective of her parents, in losing their child, and, doubtless, losing her to a monster, they in a very real sense lost their own lives as well.
