After police fatally shot Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La. on Tuesday, Joyce King wrote a powerful Dallas Morning News op-ed with the headline "Again, a black man is killed by police; again, again, again." Less than 24 hours later, tragically, we must add yet another "again."
Last night, a police officer killed Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minn. After pulling Castile's vehicle over for a broken tail light, an officer ended up shooting the 32-year-old black driver. Also in the car were Castile's girlfriend, Diamond "Lavish" Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter.
|Please note that Alton Sterling was a convicted felon with a long criminal record who fought with the police. As a felon he was illegally in possession of a gun.
