Oscar Grant, R.I.P.

Hat tip: Abagond.

The police was totally unjustified in Mr. Grant. The police in general need to be sensitive when it comes to policing people of color in their communities. They need to be more respectful as well. He was a good young man who was struggling to raise his child and go to school at the same time.

There is a pattern in police departments around the country to target Blacks, men and women, for no particular reason at all. Remember Eleanor Bumpurs, Amadou Diallo, Taniysha, Sean Bell, anyone? Let's remember them as well.

Rest in peace
