Justine Damond: THE MOST INNOCENT VICTIM OF POLICE VIOLENCE

AMERICA’S MOST INNOCENT VICTIM OF POLICE VIOLENCE

Late Saturday evening tragedy struck the family of 40-year-old Justine Damond when she was shot and killed by Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor after calling 911 to report a possible sexual assault. This tragedy, like many others, seems to have been completely avoidable, like most police shootings that have gained mainstream media attention in the past 2 years but somehow Damond fell victim to the police violence our community has been screaming about for decades. The details are saddening and mind boggling but what’s even more confusing is the media’s reaction to a white woman being killed by police versus Sandra Bland, Aiyana Stanley Jones, or Tamir Rice.
