Good to see folks helping Terrell Pough’s daughter

Given the media attention around this matter, there has been an outpouring of support.

Slain father’s 2-year-old gets offers of help

Diamond Pough, who turns 2 this week, has captured the hearts of Philadelphians who want to send donations and gifts. The 76ers are also paying for a public memorial service for her father – Terrell Pough, 18, of Germantown – next week, and good Samaritans nationwide are offering Christmas gifts to Diamond.

Today, Pough’s family will attend a private Islamic service. At 11 a.m. Monday, a larger memorial service will be held at the Liacouras Center at Temple University, 1176 N. Broad St. The event is being sponsored by the 76ers for the family and the public. Earlier this month, Pough and his daughter were honored at a game.

Two weeks ago, Pough started a job as night manager of New Orleans Chicken at 122 W. Chelten Ave. in Germantown. He had finished his shift Thursday and was shot about 10:30 p.m. on his way home.

Neighbors heard shots, but saw little, Wilkins said. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 215-686-3334.

While trying to care for his daughter, Pough received help from his mother and grandmother. Along with Diamond’s mother, they are helping to care for the child now, Godfrey said.

A fund will be established to raise money to care for Diamond. The details for contributions were not available last night, but Godfrey said the information would be provided soon because so many people had reached out.

It is good to see she is getting some help, because she will need it!

Now I’m wondering if this will spark any reaction against the thugs that do their dirty work in that area? Let’s be honest, if this was cased by a White killer we would see protests and other various acts of outrage towards the killer and towards that type of violence in general. If it were at the hands of a police officer, there would be cries against police brutality. I’m wondering when this will cause a movement against the thugs and their lifestyle? Because the kill rate for thugs is much higher than that of racist killers and police (legitimate and corrupt) combined!
