We found ourselves discussing this story in one of our recent editorial meetings. Here’s Raphael Johns’ take:

“I figured it was satire — who needs a case that looks exactly like a gun, when young people of color are being murdered just for holding a hair brush. I hope this doesn’t become the next fad, but I know exactly who’s going to buy it: the same sort of kids I went to high school with. Suburban white kids who don’t understand what the problem is with calling people n*gga, kids cops will drive home if they get drunk instead of arresting them. But for the rest of us, we don’t live in a world where the police are going to think twice about your cell phone case before showing you their very real gun.”
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
