On October 3, 1974, at around 10:45 pm, Elton Hymon and Leslie Wright of the Memphis Police Department were responding to a “prowler on the inside” call. They made the scene and observed a woman in the house next to the intended home of the call. She was standing on her front porch pointing at the house. She advised that she had heard glass breaking and someone was breaking into the house next door. As Wright showed both officers on the scene on his radio to dispatch, Hymon went to the rear of the house. Hymon heard what sounded like a door slamming shut. He then saw someone run across the backyard. The person running was later identified as Edward Garner. Garner was moving towards a 6-foot high chain at the end of the yard. Hymon shined his flashlight in Garner’s direction so that he could see his face and hands. Hymon was “reasonably sure” that he did not see a weapon in Garner’s hands. To Hymon Garner appeared to be 17 or 18 years old and about 5’5 to 5’7 feet tall. Hymon began to give verbal commands of “Police,” “halt” as he walked towards Garner because it appeared that he about climbed the fence. Garner disregarded the command and started to rise to elude police. With the belief that Garner would get away if he made it to the other side of the fence, Hymon shot him. Hymon shot Garner in the back of the head. He was taken in the ambulance to the hospital where he later died on the operating table.

“Monsters exist, but there are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and act without asking questions.” ~Primo Levi. This statement was said about the Holocaust. There are monsters in this world, but the people who believe the monsters and act for them are far more dangerous. It makes sense, doesn’t it? One monster of a man, can hurt some people, but he can be overcome by ordinary people when they work together, and strike at the same time. But what if those people were to obey the monster. To listen to his lies and to believe them, to act for them, to love them, to feel passionately that they are in the right and others wrong, and to be willing kill millions to have other people see their point. That is far more worrisome than a few monsters on their own. This is the scenario that happened from January 30th, 1933 to May 8th, 1945; the Holocaust. The Holocaust was a time when a man named Adolf Hitler rose to power in Germany, and brainwashed the Germans into following him. He had them believing that communists and Jews needed to be wiped off the earth so that they could conquer the world. He was a monster of a man who got the people same people who could
