Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
white person: I am sorry I killed your natives & enslaved your ancestors, I was hacked
braids are so pretty
omg this is messy as fuck
they came with receipts too
she better pray this doesn’t reach any gossip sites
this doesn’t surprise me.
HAHAHAHA FINISH HER
Chicago police officers shot and killed 19-year-old Roshad McIntosh in the west side neighborhood of North Lawndale on August 24. His mother was at a press conference after a letter was delivered to the United States Justice Department calling on the federal government to come to the city and investigate crimes by police officers, who have escaped accountability and justice.
Dawn McIntosh, who was crying, declared, “My son was killed senselessly, and he shouldn’t have been. He was surrendering, and they shot him anyway.”
Also, she said, “He was on his knees with both hands up begging for his life. They killed him.”
“They wouldn’t let me see him,” McIntosh shared. “I still didn’t see him until yesterday when I identified his body. It’s not right. It’s not right. And I want justice served. I want justice served for that officer who took my son away.”
Roshad’s aunt, who did not provide her name, told those gathered that the police informed her “they needed to do an investigation.” She did not even get a chance to “say goodbye, kiss her baby and tell her baby how much she loved him.”
Dawn explained that she still doesn’t know the name of the officer, who shot her son.
“I don’t know of age, nothing. I don’t know what he looks like. But, if it was the other way around and somebody had killed the police officer, their name, their age, their address, their nationality, everything, where they’re from, their whole history would have been on the news,” she suggested.
Our fight does not begin nor end in Ferguson. Around the country many young black men and women are losing their lives to police brutality and excessive force. We cannot turn a blind eye to this. Fergson is not a singular event. Nor should our response to it be. Police brutality is an epidemic in the black and latino community and it needs to be stopped.
The information about the cop involved in this case still has not been released and all I can ask is who’s child will be next.
There was 2-3 different police involved shootings in the Chicago area within the past few days.
I’m sick. Physically ill. Why does this keep happening?
