Black Men Get Shot All The Time
And nobody ever does anything about it.
Background: Prince Georges County, MD has had a well earned reputation for its predominantly white police force to be highly racist. Prince Georges Co has a border with D.C. from the Potomac River in the south all the way around to Silver Spring, MD on the northeast border of the District.
I was working in D.C. and living in Charles County, MD when this happened. My memory is not the same as the citation. I recall the news reporting that the shooter was outside the house and shooting at a shadow behind a curtain.
Regardless, the outcome was the same. A dead black man and a white police officer — well, he received no punishment.
