An unarmed Black man gets gunned down by police, because they posed “some type of threat.” Man or woman ends up dead in police custody in a jail cell. Everyday I look at social media or the news and another person has been shot and killed. Everyday, I see a new #JusticeFor… hashtag. Everyday, a new cause and a new case to fight for equality on. I will never stop praying for those who have lost their lives in the past couple years, but I feel like there is no end to this insanity.
There was a point where this was something you barely heard about; and now, I look at the TV and it’s as common as your evening weather report. It sickens me and I can barely even watch the news. All I can do is shake my head and say “another poor soul who won’t receive the justice they deserve.” It’s starting to feel as if this is just going to become normal behavior in the years to come.
I’m not sure if justice will ever be served for the lives that are lost at the hands of terrorists or police officers. Our community protestors and activists fight so hard for it, but so far it feels like it’s all in vain. From no indictments to mistrials, there’s beginning to be no meaning at all for these killings of our people. No matter how hard we stand up and fight for justice, we will only get knocked down with disappointment in the end.
