Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr., a 68-year-old Marine veteran, was killed in his home last November by police officers in White Plains, NY.

As pointed out by Xeni Jardin...

The officers were responding to a false alarm accidentally triggered by Chamberlain's medical alert pendant while he slept. Instead of helping the man, who had a heart condition, they broke down his front door, tasered him, reportedly called him the "n-word" and mocked him, then shot him dead. Audio throughout the incident was recorded by his medical alert device.

I will refrain from speculating and giving my opinions on incidents like this, in which I don't have all of the facts.

See the video of Kenneth Chamberlain, Jr., doing an interview and recounting the events of the incident.

What happened? What made an assistance call turn into a standoff and then the death of Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr.? I pray that they get all of the facts presented.

My First Taekwondo Competition in McPherson, Kansas

The T-shirt reads, "There's no "Fear" in McPherson." I didn't buy the competition T-shirt this time, but I did have a good time with family and friends at my first Taekwondo tournament.

The Ark Encounter Williamstown Kentucky 2017

We made it this time! Last week, we had a family trip to Cane's because we mistakenly thought the Ark was at the Creation Museum.

I call it the Ark Experience, because moving around it and in ti really is an experience. It is also an encounter, because no matter what you believe or think about this thing, it really does cause you to think.

We all enjoyed it and look forward to visiting it again.

Oh yeah...I took pictures of the "Spooky Jesus" (formerly known as "Touchdiwn Jesus" before lightning struck it...so I'm told) on the way back home.
