As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Cop Block,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“64-year-old Constance Manzanares drowned after she became trapped in her car in a drainage canal in El Paso, Texas. When police arrived, they threatened several young men with arrest who were in the water, attempting to rescue her. The police rescue failed, allowing the woman to drown.”
