Repost from @keithbeauchamp1955 • THIS IS AMERICA: Part 69—Walter Wallace Jr. We live in a country where the color of your skin gets you killed for A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PHILADELPHIA, PA - Police responded to a report of a man with a knife. A video of the encounter shows 27-year-old Walter Wallace Jr. wielding a knife while his mother tried to restrain him. The officers kept their guns pointed at Wallace while ordering him to drop the knife. As the camera pans away from the scene, officers fire several shots at Wallace in front of multiple witnesses, including his mother. Walter was pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Walter’s family said he was suffering a mental health crisis, and local activists have pointed to the cellphone video to ask why officers didn’t use less lethal weapons to try and subdue him. Walter’s father, noting that his son was on medication, stated, “Why didn’t they use a Taser? Why you have to gun him down?” Maurice Holloway, who watched the shooting, said that people had tried to intervene to diffuse the confrontation. Holloway told the Philadelphia Inquirer, “Everyone is saying, ‘Don’t shoot him, he’s gonna put it down, we know him.’” Philadelphia’s DA office will investigate the shooting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blacklivesmatter #blm #activism #procreate #art #nojusticenopeace #walterwallace #walterwallacejr #philadelphia #philly

Repost from @joebiden • Black lives matter, but matter is the minimum. It’s past time we address systemic racism in all aspects of this country. It’s past time we reform our criminal justice system. It’s past time we make certain that our economy works for everyone. It’s past time we fix race-based disparities in health care, housing, and more. It’s past time we support and respect Black Americans the way they deserve. Our country has failed the Black community too many times. Enough is enough.
