There are no words to describe how painful it is to lose a loved one, but they say it’s absolutely much worse when a parent has to bury their own child and this video is a testament to that.
Dwayne Smith was in attendance when Jasmine Gordon and boyfriend Clifford Thomas were about to be sentenced for the death of his three-year-old daughter Jamila Smith. But during the proceedings, Smith was caught on camera rushing over to attack Thomas and hit him on the back of the head.
Court security personnel immediately had to separate them to end the scuffle.
Thomas was understandably overcome with emotion after Jamila died with bruises on her head and chest that were consistent with abuse under the care of Gordon and Thomas. Both were convicted of involuntary manslaughter, with Gordon given 15 years with an additional 14 to 25 for first-degree child abuse and Thomas 4-and-a-half to 15 plus 1 to 2 years for resisting and obstructing a police officer.
