Ford, an active member of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement on campus at the University of Houston, was robbed at gunpoint outside his apartment, located a few blocks from campus, and now he had a major epiphany.
The young man spotted a guy loitering outside his apartment one night last week and didn't think much about it because he evidently isn't street smart. When Ford went to unlock his door, the man pulled a gun and stole his walled and cell phone.
Ford's apartment has seen a number of robberies and thefts the past several weeks. There has also been about a dozen vehicle burglaries, but since the apartment is off campus, Ford's neighborhood didn't have U of H police patrols. Now the BLM member says that needs to change.
"I hope they would take a bigger stance and put more security over here because you have a lot of people walking back and forth to class," Ford told a local radio station.
Now Ford is running for Texas State Representative and is also a leader of a Houston chapter of Black Lives Matter, a group that supports the divestment of police forces around the country and diverting money that was intended to community projects to the black community.
Will Ford change his tune about the Second Amendment? Will he advocate for students to have the right to carry weapons for self-protection?
Anything is possible with this guy.
But I predict Ford will run as a liberal Democrat and his opponent will use his name as an acronym: "Found On Road Dumb."
