No Justice - No Peace - No Think Piece - Just Grief

R.I.P. Mike Brown.  R.I.P. Eric Garner.  R.I.P. John Crawford.

The lives of these 3 young black men appear to have been needlessly lost.
One was unarmed and had his hands raised in the air according to witnesses.
One was selling cigarettes.
One was holding an air rifle alone in the aisle of a store that sells them to the public in an open carry state.
They were each killed by police officers who were supposed to protect and serve them.
When will violence stop leading to fear of violence which leads right back to violence?
When will enough be enough?

Why Black Men Don't Open Carry
