This past weekend, twenty-year-old soldier, Tevin Geike, had just finished celebrating the completion of his military obligation with friends and fellow soldiers when the unthinkable happened. He was killed by terrorists.
For the record, the terrorist attack that took his life didn’t occur on foreign soil and the terrorists themselves weren’t middle-easterners. Contrarily, the attack happened domestically in Lakewood, Washington and the terrorists were Black. In short, they were urban terrorists who apparently killed Tevin Geike after he didn’t cower in their presence. This true soldiers didn’t yield to toy soldiers.
According to Komonews.com:
“20-year-old Tevin Geike was walking with two other white soldiers along Pacific Highway SW when a group of black men drove by and shouted a racial comment toward the soldiers, the Lakewood Police Department said.
“One of the soldiers yelled back something about the suspects treating combat soldiers with disrespect,” Lt. Chris Lawler said.
The car turned around and the men confronted the soldiers, according to reports. As the verbal confrontation ensued, the driver of the vehicle realized the men were actually combat veterans and called his friends off. While the men headed back to their vehicle, one of the suspects appeared to have bumped into Geike, witnesses say.
