From AOL Black Voices:

I recently found out about the case of Mark Anthony Barmore, an unarmed African-American male in Rockford Ill., who was shot in the back by Rockford police. Barmore was shot in August in the daycare center of the Kingdom Authorities Ministries Church. A recent grand jury decision ruled that the officers did no wrong, adding insult to injury and leading to a national cry for justice.

As the son of a police officer, incidents like this are quite disturbing to me. On one hand, there is the fact that many officers around the nation take the use of force to be a very serious responsibility. Such officers deserve our respect and full cooperation. On the other hand, there is the reality that black men are far more likely to be victims of deadly force by police. In nearly every corner of the American justice system, the incarceration and extermination of black males is not only customary, but expected to occur with almost no accountability. The blue wall in police departments is thick enough to turn a lie into the truth and to value an officer’s career over a defendant’s life. Such consistent abuse of power should be challenged by concerned citizens everywhere.
