Suge Knight continued to help victims of gang
violence, this time picking up the funeral expenses for a 57-year-old woman,
who was murdered in Los Angeles Feb. 5.
Betty Jean Rothchild was caught in gunfire as
she left her South Central Los Angeles home to purchase groceries for a church
Knight agreed to pay the funeral expenses for
Rothchild, who leaves behind two sons, 13 grandchildren and a great-granddaughter.
Following the viewing at the Harrison-Ross Mortuary, Rothchild will be laid
to rest today ( Feb. 15th).
"Suge Knight didn’t have to do this,"
said Marvin Rothchild, her youngest surviving son. "He could have just
looked at the news, seen this as a tragedy and turned away. Instead, he has
really helped our family. I appreciate what he’s doing, and I want to meet him,
shake his hand and thank him."
Knight also provided funds for the families of
two innocent children murdered in Compton and Pomona and has also provided transportation
to penitentiaries on Father’s Day for children to visit their incarcerated dads,
given turkeys to hungry families on Thanksgiving and donated the money to completely
rebuild a playground destroyed by arson at a Head Start school in Sacramento.
