Recently there have been 4 murders of young black men by the people sworn to protect them. My feeling is that they are being hunted and killed because they are feared as violent and merciless… less than human. It is the only reason why killed blacks would make as much sense as it does.
When it is clear that no one in a position of authority is ever going to face any real consequence for hurting or killing Black men, armed or not, the tide of these crimes just keep rolling in. On August 13th, 2014, Ezell Ford, 25, who was said to have suffered from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia was shot and killed while on his belly. The man, whose mother described him as sweet and polite, was shot in the back three times by police offices in South Central Los Angeles.
