Another Unarmed Black Youth Shot & Killed.

Darius Simmons was Only 13 Years Old:

  • Spooner shot Simmons with a 9mm handgun five feet away from him in the chest, in front of his mother. 
  • Darius was shot once in the chest with his hands raised.  He ran to escape and collapsed at the corner, while Spooner attempted to shoot him in the back, and tried to fire a third shot. 
  • After police arrived, Darius’s body remained on the sidewalk, while police questioned his mother, Patricia Larry, in a squad car for approximately two hours.
  • During the police investigation of the shooting, they searched Ms. Larry’s home again.  Finding nothing, they then proceeded to arrest his older brother for having truancy tickets.

  • In contrast, Spooner’s family was allowed to go into the home and remove “items” despite it being the crime scene.

I can’t leave this up on my page for very long because…I just can’t stand it.

But I need people to LOOK at this.  To LOOK at how this is not just one old racist white man, but a SYSTEM THAT SUPPORTS HIM and says that this boy’s family doesn’t deserve dignity, respect, freedom, peace of mind, LIFE.  Just look at how they TREAT US!!!  Look at how they TALK about us!!!

I can’t stand this shit.  I can’t stand it!

I signed back onto my tumblr to reblog this and say FUCK WHITE RACISM.

There.
