Birthday thoughts about the deaths of black men and women at the hands of police
Eric Olsen

Thank you so much for this write up. Unfortunately, the comments section will likely be filled with those attempting to derail and deflect by bringing up black on black crime. As if it somehow justifies police shootings; as if those lives taken by those paid to serve and protect shouldn’t matter; as if the perpetrators of black on black crime also only get administrative live, their actions justified; as if better police/government/community relations would not go a long way towards helping prevent and deter gang related violence.
