On Sunday, February 28, 2016, Winchester Police officers responded to a call about a fight in progress. D’londre Minifield fled as officers arrived. During the foot pursuit, he was fatally shot. Local authorities claim the wound was self inflicting, but residents and witnesses claim otherwise. The body was transported to Mannassas, VA for an official autopsy to be conducted where it was determined the fatal wound did not come from a state issued weapon.

Local media outlets failed to report any information for days and when information was published, residents say it focused on Minifields background forcing a biased opinion in the minds of readers leading to racial slurs being exchanged on Facebook and during peaceful protests.

Instead of allowing a family to mourn, residents posted  “He shouldn’t have ran” and other disgusting, hurtful and racial slurs on Facebook and also compared this situation to an unrelated case where a police officer lost her life in the line of duty.

Melissa Turner took to her page to Facebook page to express her opinion.

“This young man laid in the same spot for hours and at one point his body was even uncovered until spectators started yelling to cover his body. Yes this was a young black man however at this time I am not going to say he was shot by the police or he committed suicide, I am going to say this family deserves answers. His mother is mourning the loss of her 20 year old son that to this day she still has not been able to view the body of her son and this family found out about his death on social media.”

There’s never a dull moment on Lawson Street with 3 daughters according to Adrienne White. She wasn’t surprised when her children encouraged her to start a dance group in Florence. History was made on Nov 4 at Pizza Hut when parents met to discuss the plan. The original 22 girls has grown to 35 as of today with no plans of stopping.  White said she has received a lot of help from Trey Skipper to form the dance group SWS (Sisters With Steps)

“Although this had been a rollercoaster ride for the dance group, they remain positive. Having a large dancing group can be stressful and some days are better than others.” I know my God sits high and looks down low on SWS” she said. “We have learned to take positive with the negative.”

Their first show was held at City Grill in December. The show sold out  SWS is currently preparing for their second show at City Grill, Tuesday March 29.

“The first show was a success with the help of Tommy Mitchell, Owner of City Grill and a SWS sponsor,” White said. “2016 has been a joy, lesson, heartache and happy times for SWS and we wouldn’t change it for the world and we are here to stay!”
