But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

The world is filled with happiness, glory, achievement, but there is no denying the pain of the struggle, the truth of the disappointments nor the reality of the obstacles. You do not make an apple of a stone by painting it red.

I just had a terrible shitty upsetting dream and like ignorant black folks had lined the streets throwing things and one guy came up to me he was large and tried to rape me with a wooden stick all because I was dating a not black guy. I cried cause my boo didn’t make it. Peace and understanding that’s what this world needs more of.
