Could I Take a Bullet?

BY JOHN RICHIE
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2013

Filmmaker John Richie speaks about the people that he came to know making "Shell Shocked", a documentary about youth and gun violence in New Orleans. He became very close to people that had lost loved ones (oftentimes children) in this way.

Many of the shootings in New Orleans are due to retaliatory violence. Like Ed Buckner says in Shell Shocked, “When you shoot one black kid, all you are doing is inciting his 20 friends to come and kill you.”

As John says, "The retaliatory response is a young man’s way of dealing with it, and only a small group of “hardheads” will do this. Most people who have lost a loved one in this violent, unfair way have years, if not a lifetime, of intense grief and anger. But what I’ve seen from the mothers, fathers, and friends of victims is an amazing transcendence from grief to compassion and enlightenment.  I’m amazed by it, and I wonder if I lost my brother or best friend to gun violence which path I’d take.  I hope I would follow the example of the great people in my film Shell Shocked."

Shell Shocked is screening at the National League of Cities conference in 2013 and is available for purchase at www.shellshockeddoc.com
