21. she was killed because of not signalling a lane change
Tue Jul 21, 2015, 06:19 PM
Jul 2015

whether she committed suicide or not, that was the event that resulted in her death either directly or indirectly at the hands of those police.

imagine how traumatized any black person, with no witnesses, will be when pulled over by the police - and with good reason. And consistently we hear how an armed, generally supported police person (I don't want to call them officers anymore) need to use excessive force on the single, lone, generally unarmed black person.

And this constant shit of black people in police hands committing suicide is tragically disgusting. I hear LIES, LIES, LIES when that excuse is used.

It's time to lock these so called public servants who commit murder away in prison and subject them to the same treatment they are giving to other innocent people.
