How am I just now finding out about this?
How is this police officer on leave and not in a jail cell?
How is are people coming to his defense talking about a tazer? They look, feel, and are used completely differently.
How do police get away with confiscating video cameras after one of their commits a brutal murder?

Why do police get to investigate themselves.
Why are we still having to have this discussion.
Why is this young man dead, when moments prior he was begging his friends to cooperate with the police?

Oscar Bell, Sean Bell, Duanna Johnson.
All murdered. All people of color. All victims of police violence.

I think the Hows and Why's are perfectly fucking clear.
