Two More Black Lives Lost: Alton Sterling & Philando Castile | TYT Politics

More intolerable tragedy. Murders. Police shoot and kill two innocent black men within 24 hours.

“TYT Politics Reporter Jordan Chariton spoke with New York Daily News columnist Shaun King on July 7, 2016 about the police killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.” ~ TYT Politics

Stepping back from these heart-wrenching scenes, setting aside grief and sympathy, I wonder how on earth such men could be police officers. Why did they chose a dangerous profession, in the first place? They are too easily frightened and panic-stricken. They end up escalating routine police duties into murderous chaos — where they are the ones who commit the hideous crimes.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
