Here is another story you will not see on the mainstream media.

A young white mother by the name of Jessica Doty Whitaker was near the canal in Indianapolis, Indiana during a “Black Lives Matter” protest, when a confrontation erupted and shots were fired. The young mom was killed.

According to her family, Doty Whitaker was ultimately murdered for telling a group of armed Black Lives Matter (BLM) supporters that “all lives matter.”

An Indianapolis mother was shot and killed along the canal early Sunday, marking the second homicide on the canal in a week.

According to the victim’s family, the shooting started with an argument over Black Lives Matter and language. Eventually the two sides separated and walked away from each other, until witnesses claim the killer opened fire from a nearby bridge and ran away.

“It was squashed and they went up the hill and left we thought, but they were sitting on St. Claire waiting for us to come under the bridge and that’s when she got shot,” said the victim’s fiancé Jose Ramirez.

Jose admits he returned fire, but didn’t hit anyone. He says Jessica Doty Whitaker leaves behind a little boy.

“She shouldn’t have lost her life. She’s got a 3-year-old son she loved dearly,” said Ramirez.

Explaining to Jessica’s son Greyson that he’ll never see his mom again has been the hardest part for the family.

“It’s hard to tell him his mom is in heaven and if you want to talk to her you have to look up and say, ‘I love you mom,’” said Ramirez.
