Get the facts about police violence in your community to make the case for change.At least 100 unarmed black people were killed by police in 2014, more than any other race.
Where you live matters. A black person in St. Louis is 5x more likely to be killed by police than a black person in New York City. A black person in Florida is more than 2.5x more likely to be killed by police than a black person in Georgia.
It's not about crime rates. Despite the fact that Newark and St. Louis have similar crime rates and demographics, police killed 4 black people in St. Louis and zero in Newark in 2014.
We knew it was coming, North Charleston Police have released video footage to justify the murder of Walter Scott.It doesn't have to be this way. One black person was killed nationwide in Canada in 2014. There are more black people in Canada than Missouri.
"Scott was 'wanted for a 'family court warrant'! He is a horrible father, a criminal, why make him a victim when Officer Slager is the real hero!"Snark
