Human Story: Jordan Edwards

This boy, fifteen years of age, was shot in the back of the head while in the front passenger seat of a vehicle leaving a house party. This boy was unarmed. He was murdered by this police officer who was fired from the police department and charged with murder.

 

I’m fucking tired of having to act like, “Oooh what a great step in the right direction, he was fired and charged with an appropriate crime for his criminal action!” What this man did was murder a teenager. His police department who poorly trained and inadequately prepared him should be ashamed, should be reformed, should also be tried for contributing to murder.

 

Where does all of this rage go? Where does it belong? White guys with rage are given guns and free reign to terrorize. And the rest of our rage? Where does that go?
