Do you have info to share with HuffPost reporters? Here’s how.
As reported globally and partly captured on video in July, the capital of Louisiana suffered the shooting deaths of three police officers and the death of a man selling CDs all within two weeks. Both episodes and other killings last month of black men and police officers jolted the US into a deep examination of how violent race relations had become in the country.
The same feeling of panic churns your insides, and there is no escape. This time, the shooting happened in Miami-- your city is not immune to police brutality. The image of a Black man lying on the concrete floor with both his hands in the air, while his patient sits close to him, makes it clear that there is no way to justify this shooting.
As we move forward in our endeavors, we will forever remember the lives of those slain and the loss their families have experienced. While we pray that their hearts and minds will one day know peace, we pledge to aggressively continue our efforts so that these types of prayers will one day become unnecessary.
