The only certainty we have these days is that at some point,somewhere, somehow, a black skinned person will be shot by the police whose task in life is to prevent people from getting shot. Among the latest examples is Tawon Boyd. He felt himself not functioning in a normal way, so Mr.Boyd called 911 in order to have police come to his house, and get him to the hospital. Somehow, the 911 operator came to the conclusion that a woman in the background was complaining about Mr. Boyd. What followed would not be believed if this was a movie.
The police arrived, Mr. Boyd went to the police car, became disoriented, and then ran to a neighbor’s house and asked him to call the police. Police followed him, grabbed him,and then several pushed him to the ground, and one got him in choke hold, and soon Boyd was dead. At one point his grandmother urged the police to be careful, she was told to shut up, and the police continued aiding Mr.Boyd by killing Mr.Boyd.
Is there something bizarre with this story? NO gun was found, no drugs were found but somehow the end result was–DEATH.
