Don’t just talk about it, be about it! While many continue to cope with the recent tragedy Buffalo, New York, Civil rights lawyer Ben Crump is demanding the protection of African Americans. Lawyer Crump, who represents the family of 86-year-old Ruth Whitfield, has called on President Joe Biden and Congress to pass a bill against hate crimes against blacks. Speaking to ABC News Live and standing next to Ruth’s children, he said: “We will fight to do what they think their mother would like. That is to get some positive changes as a result of this tragedy. ” He added: “That is why we are telling President Biden and the United States Congress to pass a bill against hate crimes against blacks.”

Lawyer Crump has been very loud since an act of internal terrorism took place on Saturday that took the lives of ten innocent people at the hands of 18-year-old Peyton Hendron. As we reported earlier, Peyton pleaded not guilty as he was charged with first-degree murder during the shooting. Authorities say he came to the Tops supermarket dressed in tactical gear and conducted a live broadcast of the mass shooting with a camera attached to his helmet.

Earlier today, the names of all ten victims were published, including; Aaron Salter, 55. Ruth Whitfield, 86, Pearly Young, 77, Catherine Messi, 72, Deacon Hayward Patterson, 67, Celestine Cheney, 65, Roberta A. Drury, 32, Margus D. Morrison, 52, Andre McNeill, 53, and Geraldine Tally, 62. According to The GuardianAttorney Crump and attorneys representing the Whitfield family said they could file lawsuits against Bushmaster, a maker of Peyton-style weapons.

Attorney Ken Abarn said “all the signs and red flags were there” to keep an eye on the suspect and prevent him from buying a gun and threatening comments that led police to his high school last spring and sparked a mental health assessment. Our thoughts continue to go to the loved ones of all the victims.
