Last week Kevin Matthews, a 35 year old unarmed black man was killed by a Dearborn police officer in Detroit. Just days later, Chicago police officers "accidentally" killed 19 year old Quintonio LeGrier and 55 year old Bettie Jones. Unfortunately these victims join a growing list of American's killed by police officers.
According to the Washington Post, 965 people have been shot dead by police THIS YEAR. We should be outraged AND we need to be organized.
