What I’ve found out in the days since the murder of Freddie Gray is that people are being killed every day by police in America. A friend has told me that there is a least one such death a day.
Looking for more information about this, I found this video, which documents the deaths of unarmed people killed by Police in 2014. Most of these deaths were not reported on the news, and yet they were killed at the hand of police.
It’s important for all people in America to be aware of two things:
- People from EVERY race are being killed by police
- This is being largely being kept a secret
If it weren’t a secret, more people would be marching and protesting and maybe we could make a change to this horrific trend.
My condolences go out to the families and friends of all these victims. May they rest in peace.
May our country give them justice, however long it takes.
It’s critical that people are made aware, or those aware reminded, that this is the case. It’s an issue the entire citizenry is deeply invested in whether they know it or not.
it’s important to know and made everyone aware….great post!!
So the police commit the most hideous acts and its brushed under the carpet, I despair.
You are not alone but hold onto hope. It will change for the better. We need to speak our minds constantly. Hugs, Barbara
