On Saturday, August 9, 18-year-old, college bound and unarmed Mike Brown was shot and killed by a cop in Ferguson, MO.
Sadly, he is not the first, and probably won’t be the last, unarmed Black man gunned down by an officer who is supposedly trained to have their best interest at heart.
History has way too many examples of cops shooting first, and asking questions later. There are also cases of burying evidence or just just plain getting away with murder.
Here are 10 such examples. Never forget.
