And people say that we have moved forward in ridding America of racism... No we have not.. Just to speak as plainly as I can..... There may be no more of the burning of the crosses in the yards, or the lynchings , or the blatant signs saying "We serve white people only" or two different signs white and black at the water fountains.... Today we have cops getting away with murder.... Businesses who will not hire African Americans and list goes on and on... So no we have not come a long way on rididing America of racism

Today, July 13, is the four-year anniversary of #BlackLivesMatter ✨ 📷Evan Vucci

Philando Castile’s death last July sparked massive protests in Minnesota and across the country. On Friday, Yanez’s acquittal did the same thing. *Educate Ourselves and Learn Our Rights *We Must Vote Out Politicians Who Condone Police Brutality *Protest *Advocate For & Support Criminal Justice Reform, Demilitarization of Police, & Decriminalization of Behaviors such as Loitering & Minor Traffic Violations. *Support Movements that Raise Awareness of Police Brutality, Injustice & Help Expose & Dismantle Structural Racism. *Remember The Names — The People Killed.

What determines whose death will storm my chest, will flood my eyes, will make me want to burn down a fucking city and pray, with every ounce of my winded grace, that more than just smoke will rise?"

A cop in #Alabama shot & killed #UNARMED #GregoryGunn today.
Family members of the #Montgomery man who was killed in an officer-involved #shooting have identified him as 59 y/o Gregory Gunn.

Acc to Montgomery Police Chief Ernest Finley, the shooting happened around 3:20AM in the 3200 block of McElvy Street, which is in the #MobileHeights neighborhood. This is the first fatal police shooting in Montgomery in 5 yrs.

Finley said the officer was on routine #patrol when he noticed what he believed to be a #suspicious man walking down the street. "At this point in time what we have is we had a suspicious person, & the officer engaged that individual. There was a slight struggle that continued for about a block or so at which time the officer fired and shot & killed the suspect," Finley said.

The investigation was turned over to the State Bureau of Investigations, which is common practice when an officer is involved in a shooting. The investigation could take mths.

When asked if the man was #armed, Finley said "there was some indication of some instrument." He later called it a stick, pole & painting pole.

Finley says the officer, who was identified as a young officer with under 4 years with the PD, has been placed on #administrativeLeave. The police chief said he doesn't know if the officer was injured. The officer will be "isolated" & interviewed.

The findings of the investigation will be turned over to the DA's office.
Gunn lived in the #community, & the initial encounter was about a block or so from where he lived.

For most of the day Thursday, family & friends gathered near the scene. They were all in shock & disbelief, wondering how this could happen & why.

Acc to family, Gunn was shot 5 times & died in the front yard of 3237 McElvey St.

Kenneth Gunn said his brother had a few misdemeanors on his record but nothing major. Gunn added his brother cut people's yards & worked at the Foodland grocery store on the Southern Boulevard. Gregory Gunn was apparently well known & well liked in the neighborhood.
