NORTH LITTLE ROCK,Ark.--The mother of an 18-year-old murder victim says she forgives the man accused of killing her daughter.
The shooting rattled a North Little Rock neighborhood earlier this week; many called it an act of domestic violence.
The mother of the victim says this is not the first time she has dealt with the murder of a loved one.
She says she is relying on family and her faith after seeing her brother, her husband and now her daughter murdered in the last few years.
Family pictures lined the table inside the home of an 18-year-old whose life was tragically taken away.
For mother, Yolanda Young, death is nothing new.
"My husband he had an associate's degree, he was murdered," she said. "My brother was murdered, Ron Everhard, in 94, so I've been in the healing process a long time."
She never thought she would see her daughter shot dead on the ground at a home in North Little Rock.
"This is my daughter, this is my first born," said Yolanda.

Stereotypes don’t just materialize from thin air.
$830.00 bail for capital murder?
Will the ‘mother’ of the murdered girl post it?
“...is being held without bond.”
I'm no detective, but maybe she should be investigated herself. Since, statistically, she's personally broken statistics.
An American Tragedy!
It is so unfair that Blacks are disproportionately a higher percentage of the prison population.
The White man is out to get us!
“She says she is relying on family and her faith after seeing her brother, her husband and now her daughter murdered in the last few years. “
There used to be a saying something like: “If you know people who get shot, you should move and get new friends.”
I’m pretty sure the people in North Little Rock know they’re in a bad place. Economics aside, if people close to you are being killed, MOVE YOUR ASS!
Is it her place to forgive? The violence was against her daughter, not her.
The government gives money and aid to people from Honduras seeking refuge from crime there. Why can’t our own citizens living in these high crime areas demand the same consideration?
Yet the mugshot says “ Bond: 830.00”
I had to come to grips with that question, is it my place to forgive while I’m the survivor mother of a murdered child, I am not the victim, and only the victim can forgive.
All I can do is fight the corrupt INJUSTICE system with their stats. We did not live in a bad neighborhood, small town, very little crime. Sociopath wanted to see what it felt like to kill, and ambushed my 16 yr old on his way home from HS less than a block from our home, he was mentally and physically a 12 year old. His voice hadn’t even cracked, no peach fuzz. A$$ AG RINO plead him down from M1 to M2 and 20 yrs, I eked out 12.5 yrs, 6 parole hearings, which included 2 years it took to get to the plea deal. He now walks a free man. And I’m his #1 target and I CCW.
I don’t forgive. I still hurt.
She was damaged with the loss of her daughter. That is not hard to understand. It would be, “I forgive you for taking my daughter away from me”.
That is a huge damage. The survivors are the ones who end up suffering. For the dead, they have no consciousness to suffer. They are just on to the next phase where we are all heading eventually.
If someone murdered my daughter, I would forgive the killer rather than carry hate in my heart forever. However, I would delay that forgiveness until someone (whether myself or Old Sparky) executed the predator, who does not deserve to remain in the same world as decent people.
“Why cant our own citizens living in these high crime areas demand the same consideration?”
Probably because they themselves are the problem. Momma moves her fatherless brood, including two or three teenage baby-boys, to some new location, and can’t understand why they still get drive-bys.
Probably true in a lot of cases, but it would make a statement about Obama opening the doors for refugees from other countries when he can’t even offer security for our own citizens.
“Yet the mugshot says Bond: 830.00 “
That could be some kind of code, but I haven’t had much luck finding out.
This official site:
has his bond at 0.00
No, her husband had an associate’s degree, so you see, it must be some mystical force behind it all
