The Prey Gets the Last Laugh

Gordon is a poor black man in America. While he doesn’t exactly have a clean slate, he isn’t bad enough to be chased down and arrested by the police—but it still happens. Two hours later, he dies in the police car, driven by two white officers, one of who has an immense hatred for black people. Gordon’s death is ruled an accident. Police officer Anthony supports white supremacy. He believes black people should be slaves to the white man, so he feels no guilt when Gordon dies, even though he knows it wasn’t an accident. Gordon was murdered. His death is questioned all over the United States, but there is no justice since the police department suppresses the truth. Instead of receiving hate, Anthony is greeted with love and called a hero. It appears he has gotten away with his crime. He concealed the truth from society … but will he be able to conceal the truth from his own conscience? Due to his actions, Anthony’s soul is irrevocably bruised.
