OP-ED: With Police Brutality, An Officer's Race Doesn't Matter

The continuous killings of blacks by police is the alarming news story of today. And while most cases have involved white officers shooting and killing unarmed young Blacks in America, the Freddie Gray case included six officers, three of them who were Black. The story in Freddie Gray's death is an everyday incident, similar to an episode of The Wire, as officers would be involved in, rough driving, taking sharp turns to add an extra punishment to the person who they arrested that was sitting…See More
