  1. This is what we’re always up against, folks. Jurors like this one across the country.

  2. @TheJusticeDept What are you going to do about the shooting death of #PhilandoCastile?

  3. A disgrace before God Almighty that racist bigoted jury let this killer cop walk free. They are monsters wreaking havoc across America.

    KING: We’re losing the battle against police brutality in America

    It’s hard for me to write this, but we must be honest about our status in the fight against police brutality in America. We are losing. I have two primary metrics for that conclusion. First, 2017 is on pace to be the deadliest year ever measured for the number of people killed by police in our country. We can never claim to be winning the battle against police brutality if American police are killing more and more people. Period. Secondly, even the most egregious officers, in the most heinous cases of police violence, with the most overwhelming evidence, are still beating the charges against them.

    I can get granular about it. I monitor nearly 50 different metrics regarding police brutality and injustice in America. All of them matter — from the introduction of new policies in local police departments, to the election of district attorneys who are willing to aggressively prosecute police. The battle to reduce police violence in America is a complicated one. But at the end of the day, if more people are being killed by police this year than any other year and the most rotten apples among America’s police still aren’t being held accountable, then we are losing.

    I am losing. This isn’t me pointing the fingers at activists or organizations. I am right in the middle of this fight. I’ve marched. I’ve protested. I’ve organized. I’ve taught. I’ve petitioned. I’ve donated. I’ve lobbied. I’ve voted. I’ve campaigned. I’ve presented. I’ve written. I’ve tweeted. I’ve Facebooked. I’ve strategized. I’ve televised. I’ve radioed. For three straight years, I’ve thrown everything I’ve known to throw at the problem of police brutality in America, and by all measures, the problem is now worse than it was before I did any of those things.

    We are losing. We are being outspent, out-organized, and out-maneuvered by an unjust system that is so deeply entrenched and so well fortified with the principles of white supremacy, racism and classism that in spite of all of our collective efforts, injustice marches on. It isn’t skipping a beat.

    …The odds of an officer being convicted for murder in a police shooting is approaching lottery ticket levels. It’s that bad.

    I did not say all of this to lament or wallow in self-pity — never that. I said all of that to say that we need a change of direction. I wouldn’t even go so far as to say that anything we’ve done is wrong. We should protest. We should petition and march and vote. We should do all of those things, but they just aren’t enough to make a systemic shift in the problem. Maybe if we weren’t doing all of those things the problem would’ve spiraled even farther out of control — we’ll never know — but what I do know if that families who deserve justice don’t have it and the threat of police brutality is more problematic than ever.

  6. My God! 😢😢😢

    The way they do our lives….

    Kill your loved ones in front of you and then handcuff you.

  7. Maybe black people should start causing hung juries everywhere? If we don’t receive justice no one receives justice! #PhilandoCastile
