Re: Another day another police killing

According to the Washington Post, last year there were 10 unarmed black people (9 men and 1 woman) shot and killed by police officers in the United States. Of those 10, -One was killed after choking an officer and using the officer's tazer on him. This was corroborated by five eyewitnesses. -One pe...

There is plenty of clarity in the cases that I mentioned. Every single one involved a false narrative that was proven to have been false. One even involved a false killing of someone who never existed. I agree that one murder by a police officer (or anyone) is too many, but we will never have perfe...
