This story may or may not get your attention; regardless it needs to be addressed. Why are our very own policeman shooting down black males at such a high rate? The police are supposed to “serve and protect” our communities and that includes all young black men and women. However, we see them gunning Black folks down and saying it’s because ‘they feared for their lives.’ They murder those who are innocent, claiming they were trying to protect themselves. How can an unarmed person be a threat to your life; especially when that person is running away?
