Two More Blights upon America - Police Kill Two More Black Men

Let me begin by being very explicit and terse: justice must be served in all matters and especially in the matters involving the killing of innocent Black men in the United States(US) by white police officers.

There have been far too many of these incidents where Black lives are fallen by policemen, who often walk away with little or no punishment for the crimes of murder. 

Two recent incidents including the overnight shooting death of 32-year-old Philando Castile by police in St Paul, Minnesota, underscore the blight America still carries worldwide in respect to race relations. 

Castile was shot by police while in a vehicle with a woman and a child, thus exaggerating the disrespect and contempt by the law enforcement officer for all the lives in the automobile. The cop's actions must be rejected, condemned and convicted for the crime committed.

Before Castile's death in Minnesota, Louisiana police wrestled, pinned and shot another Black man, 37-year-old Alton Sterling to death outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge. These two deaths add to the losses of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland; Gregory Gunn in Montgomery, Alabama; Akiel Denkins in Raleigh, North Carolina; Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina; Laquan McDonald in Chicago, Illinois; Samuel Dobose in Cincinnati, Ohio; Akai Gurley in Brooklyn, New York; Jamar  Clark in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Brendon Glenn in Los Angeles, California; and among others, Christian Taylor in Arlington, Texas.

Justice must be served. It must be served fairly. Anything short of justice to the victims and families could erode civility in a nation that has made great strides toward achieving racial equality.
