Amid the many stories of hypocrisy I come across, occasionally I find a story which points in a different direction. Like this one... Calvin Wayne Inman, an newly ordained youth minister, admitted to stabbing to death a 64-year-old man in 1994.
The Pasadena man knew he needed to surrender to authorities for something he said he did as a 16-year-old in 1994. That's when, police said he told them, he fatally stabbed a 64-year-old convenience store clerk for cash and cigarettes.
Earlier this month, Inman told authorities he and a then 13-year-old friend planned to rob Mumtaz Grocery store the afternoon of Aug. 14, 1994. When the store's clerk, Iqbal Ahmed, asked for identification, Inman told police he pulled out a large kitchen knife from his pants and stabbed Ahmed once in the chest.
Ahmed died at the store. The two teenagers fled to a nearby apartment complex and never spoke about the incident — leaving the case unsolved for more than 13 years.
I have another story to write. I'll post it tonight. I good man died in Los Angeles a week ago. It's been all over the press. He was a SWAT officer with a big heart who died in the line of duty. I met him twice. He tried to give me a bible.
