I've been so enraged at the death of Anthony Lamar Smith in St Louis and the acquittal of the white former police officer who murdered him. The more I learn about the deadly encounter of Anthony with government sanctioned law enforcement and the assumptions made about Anthony after his murder the more my blood boils. Did you know the former officer shot at the moving vehicle, which is against protocol and extremely dangerous? Did you know the whole encounter lasted six minutes? Did you know that on surveillance footage you can hear the former officer say they are going to kill Anthony? Did you know that the weapon found in the back of Anthony's car only had DNA evidence of one person on it, that of the murderer, the former police officer? Did you know that in his reasoning of the acquittal, the judge wrote, "an urban heroin dealer not in possession of a firearm would be an anomaly." The assumptions about Anthony Lamar Smith made by the police and the judge confounded and angered me. Then I walked past this photo of Mike Brown and the police officer who fatally shot him and I was overwhelmed with emotion. I am reminded of Heather Heyer, the young white woman counter protesting white supremacy in Charlottesville who was killed when a white supremacist drove into the crowd, and her last post on Facebook, "If you are not outraged, you are not paying attention." If you are a white person just starting to pay attention, let's talk. If you are a white person and outraged, let's work together. Healthy anger and thoughtful awareness make great fuels for love and justice.
