In the last couple of weeks the police have killed several people. What has really got people up in arms is that these people were killed when they didn't stop at a police roadblock. The problem is that most people can't tell the difference between the police and criminals at 2 am on a dark stretch of road. I was just reading today that the police have killed 1600 people in the last three years. Which averages to around 1.5 people per day. What makes it even worse is that as I was looking at the news and saw the photo of one of the latest victims, I found out that I knew him. We never met in person, but online. He was leaving his 23rd birthday party with his family. They encountered a roadblock. They decided to keep going, not knowing If these were actual police or criminals. The police shot at the car and he was killed. He leaves a distraught family and a 2 year-old daughter. Also killed in the last couple of weeks was an 81 year old gentleman. He was killed in a small town. Again, after not stopping for a police blockade. There are many voices coming out calling on the government to have the police change their policy of shooting at cars who don't stop. We'll see.
Rest in peace, Abraham.
