‘You took my baby but I will still forgive you’: Incredible compassion of mother of cop ‘murdered by Mississippi couple’ as four suspects are charged in double shooting
Youlander Ross has spoken of pain of losing cop son, Liquori Tate
Incredibly, she says she will forgive those responsible for his death
‘I will let them know “you took something very valuable away from me. But in that, I will still forgive you. You took my baby. I will still forgive you”‘
The grief-stricken mother of one of the two police officers shot dead during a routine traffic stop in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, on Saturday has revealed she will forgive her son’s killers for their actions.
In an interview on Mother’s Day, Youlander Ross said through tears: ‘If I could face the people who did this to my son, I will let them know, “you took something very valuable away from me”.’
She added: ‘”But in that, I will still forgive you. You took my baby… I will still forgive you.”
Mrs Ross’s son, 25-year-old rookie cop Liquori Tate, was gunned down alongside decorated K9 officer Benjamin Deen, 34, on Saturday night after Deen pulled over a gold Cadillac Escalade.
Tate, who had only graduated from police academy in June last year, had arrived at the scene as backup. The wounded officers were discovered by residents and later declared dead in hospital.
‘Every time I text, every time I call, I always end with “I love you, son”. And he’ll say, “I love you, Mama”,’ she said. ‘[This time] I told him I loved him again, and he said “I love you Mama, too’.
She added that Tate’s death was ‘not easy to deal with’ and described him as a ‘wonderful son’. ‘A mother couldn’t ask for anyone better,’ she wept as she sat next to Tate’s stepfather, Bernell.
