Police officers murdering Blacks has become so routine, I’m running out of words to say. This time, 30-year-old Charleena Lyles contacted the Seattle police to report a burglary only to be gunned down because she was carrying a small knife.
Ms. Lyles had a documented mental illness and small children in the home. She was also with child.
How is it two officers, guns drawn feel so threaten by a knife-carrying woman with child that deadly force was necessary to use?
These police departments across the USA are hiring racists and should be held accountable. We can no longer seek justice through the courts. Blacks are being terrorized and lawsuits should commence.
My condolences are extended to the family.
