Remember Their Names:  The LIST

Another young black man was shot senselessly again this week by the hands of a police officer who took an oath to serve and protect. Even in the midst of the Derek Chauvin trial for the murder of George Floyd, the killing continues.  At the time that this article was written, the Washington Post has reported that over 982 people have been fatally shot by the police in the last year.  These shootings happen so often, that sometimes we forget the names of the many victims. The Post investigators started logging these incidents in 2015 after the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. 

The amount of shooting deaths has been undercounted because reporting by police departments is voluntary and many departments fail to do just that.  The events that lead to these fatal shooting vary, but at the end of it all, the investigation revealed that black and brown Americans are killed at a much higher rate than white Americans. 

This begs the question of: “what role does race play in all of it?”  Officials would have you believe that it plays no role at all.  They would have you believe that systemic racism in police departments is a myth.  They would have you believe that there is no duality when it comes to justice for whites and blacks.  However, we aren’t blind and the evidence is quite clear.  It is important to remember their names.
