According to the Daily Mail, A church preacher is being held on suspicion of murdering his pregnant British wife in a hotel room in Ghana. The body of Charmain Adusah, 41, was discovered by hotel staff face down in a bath where it is believed she had been lying for four days. Her husband, Eric Isaiah Adusah, a self-proclaimed prophet and evangelical preacher, was alleged to have left the hotel hurriedly on the day she is believed to have died.
In light of the recent events surrounding the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri I again have to face one of my worst nightmares. Although my son Elijah is biracial, he appears to be a young black man who could at any time find himself the target of police violence. I am a former Magistrate so I more than understand that the job of a police officer is often thankless and that fine, upstanding officers put their lives on the line every day. Still, I know there is a large element of black men whose only crime is being black. For those who are profiled, harassed and arrested for no good reason I lament.
