The Culture That Led To The Deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown

Something needs to change.

Something needs to change about a legal system that doesn’t hold police misconduct accountable. Something needs to change about a police climate that REWARDS those who carry out misconduct. Something needs to change about a political climate that fuels police militarization. Something needs to change about a culture that automatically assumes black people are guilty.

Only then will we stop hearing about another Eric Garner or another Michael Brown.
