April 25, 2015, the 24 year-old unarmed ‘Black’ man from Haiti; an activist and an aspiring fashion student
living in NYC, was murdered by two veteran NYPD ‘detectives.’ It’s sickly ironic to me that they always seem to hit the good guys, maybe I’m just being paranoid; but anyone who is pro-community seems to be an even larger target. Is that just me?
David was a very popular and welcomed face among the homeless and the runaway youth community here in New York City. Social and legal providers alike knew David Felix to be a man with a beautiful heart; the loving, giving first generation immigrant was welcomed into New York City with open arms because of his good nature, his pure spirit and beautiful heart.
He had a passion of caring for those who needed it the most; hurting a soul was the last thing I can imagine David Felix would have ever thought of. He is the kind of man this world needs more of; not just man, but soul. But the NYPD do not want to see that; especially from a Black male so you know what tragically happens next.
