I’m not sure what’s left to be said about things like this. But these shootings will continue to happen as long as police are allowed to shoot first and ask questions later until they are being held properly accountable.
A Minnesota man was fatally shot Wednesday night by the police during a traffic stop in a St. Paul suburb, and the aftermath was captured in a grisly video recorded by the car’s front-seat passenger and streamed live.
It was the second shooting this week of a black man by police officers, and parts of both encounters were recorded on video.
As the Minnesota video circulated widely on social media, protesters gathered outside the governor’s mansion in St. Paul demanding accountability for the police officers involved.
