Making Sense Out Of The Senseless 

Dear Editor,

On Election Night, Nov. 3, 2020, my beloved brother, Mark Freedman, was killed while leaving his restaurant on Dolley Madison Road. Our family’s shock, sorrow and questions continue to endure while his killer remains free. My brother’s murder was so senseless. If you know something, please come forward. If the information leads to an arrest, you will receive $20,000.  It’s completely anonymous. 

In 2021, senseless killings continue. So many Greensboro families are suffering as we are, yet the community is responding. Since my brother’s death, friends have formed a non-profit foundation, Mark’s Angel Foundation, to honor my brother’s legacy. The foundation is hosting a community golf tournament on Oct. 4, 2021, to raise money for the Crime Stoppers reward account and for local charities.  

Another group, Mother’s Standing Against Gun Violence, a boots on the ground group of mothers who’ve lost their children to gun violence, as well as concerned community members, walk and canvass neighborhoods with Crime Stopper fliers, connecting with residents, encouraging them to share leads about crimes committed in the area. They walk often and on Wednesday, Aug. 18; they will walk for my brother.  

If you have important information or you want to walk with us, call Crime Stoppers, (336) 373-1000. To learn more about the golf tournament and foundation, please visit  

The community is coming together and trying to make sense out of these senseless acts of murder. Please join us. We need you. We need everyone. 

Thank you,

Robin Freedman
