KING: After Tyre King’s Death, Here’s Why I Don’t Believe a Word Police Say Immediately After They Kill Someone:
(Shaun King) In two years time, I’ve now written nearly 1,000 articles about injustice in America. Injustice is so heavy here in the United States that if I had written 10,000 articles I still would only be scratching the surface. On the average day, I get hundreds of original emails from people who’ve been wronged in some way or another and hope they can have their story told.
When I first started telling these stories, I must admit that I was terribly naive. I had no idea how complex the justice system is. While I knew it was difficult to hold a corrupt or violent cop accountable for their actions, I simply didn’t know the lengths police, prosecutors, politicians and even local media outlets will go to protect a violent officer from paying the price for their brutality. I’ve learned the hard way over these past two years that what should make sense rarely does when it comes to holding police accountable for their violent actions. Now I know.
