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.

    “Minnesota Governor sounds serious about getting justice for Castile”

    Well, I am here in Minnesota and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Governor Dayton is actually quite insensitive to what has been going down in Minnesota since he was elected, governor. There has been a multitude of police murdering Black unarmed Minnesota citizens and the governor never even initiated a task force to look into the situation. I can only speculate as to why he is coming forth stating that over this particular case when there have been similar cases that got no response of this kind from him.

    But I do thank you for posting this JoAnn!

      That’s very interesting food for thought, Shelby. Thanks for your input!

    Horror. And so is the news that after a peaceful march in Dallas, shots were fired by one person at two police officers as marchers were leaving the vigil.

      Yes, that is horrible too. The continuous lack of justice may lead to vigilante actions. Minnesota Governor sounds serious about getting justice for Castile. That’s what we need. No more sheltering of killer cops.
