Several cops surrounded a Black man and fatally shot him 10+ times tonight in Lafayette, LA! He reportedly had a knife and was walking away from police, but didn’t deserve to die — they acted as judge jury and executioner. We demand JUSTICE and ANSWERS. #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/6gI3rNU4FH— Ben Crump (@AttorneyCrump) August 22, 2020
Ну что же, ждём вторую волну протестов и беспорядков против полицейского насилия и расизма. Ну, и бонусом обычно идут бунты с погромами, грабежами, стрельбой, поджогами. Так что США ещё, видимо, долго придётся разгребать последствия.
