As reported by Amanda Holpuch last July 21st 2016 in the Guardian, another act of racism was made by the police. It is not the first time this last year police officers in America have opened fire on black unarmed men. Charles Kinsey, who is a behavior therapist in a group home was sitting by the street with an autistic patient when a police sped out of no where and brought a gun in their direction. Charles was not armed and his patient had only a toy truck in his hands whicht he therapist repeated multiple time he had to the police while his hands where in the air. We can observe in this incident that the officer had no reason to point his gun to them as they had no weapons and have listened to their directions of putting their arms up high in the air. However, the damage have been done. The police officer have shot Charles in the leg. Thomas Matthews an officer of experience observed the scene from afar and claimed :“I understand when an officer fears for his life and he needs to shoot someone. But you got to wait to see if he has a weapon. All he had was a toy truck.” Charles' case is not the only one who has occur. Mutliple innocent black men have been victim of this act of uncesseray violence. It has brought the African American communities of the different part of the United states to manifest their rights. It is true, every one should feel save around cops as they are present to protect us and not attack innoncent individuals. All together and all around the world we have to continue to fight for different races rights and equality.
The article I summarized above was found in the Guardian. This journal was founded in 1821 in the United Kingdom, has expend his range of places in the world and stayed active as well. The fact that the author, Amanda Holpuch, gave her name in the webarticle as a writer in New York for the journal is a prove that it is relevent and works well and has enough profits to employ writers in many parts of the United States.
