1. 29 Black People Have Been Killed by Police/Security Since Jan 2012, 16 since Trayvon Martin

    occupyallstreets:

    Twenty-eight Black People (27 Men and 1 Female) Killed by Police Officials, Security Guards, and Self-Appointed “Keepers of the Peace” between January 1, 2012 and March 31, 2012

    - 28 cases of state sanctioned or justified murder of Black people in the first 3 months of 2012 alone have been found (due to under reporting and discriminatory methods of documentation, it is likely that there are more that our research has yet to uncover)

    - Of the 28 killed people, 18 were definitely unarmed. 2 probably had firearms, 8 were alleged to have non-lethal weapons.

    - Of the 28 killed people,

    11 were innocent of any illegal behavior or behavior that involved a
    threat to anyone (although the shooters claimed they looked “suspicious”);

    7 were emotionally disturbed and/or displaying strange behavior.

    The remaining 10 were either engaged in illegal or potentially illegal
    activity, or there was too little info to determine circumstances of their
    killing. It appears that in all but two of these cases, illegal and/or harmful
    behavior could have been stopped without the use of lethal force.

    This list doesn’t include Kenneth Chamberlain so the actual number is actually higher.
