Indictment in Shooting Death of Akai Gurley

Well we have one indictment out of many but I will not hold my breath because we need a conviction. Even if we get a suitable conviction *read prison time for murder (wishful thinking I know)* we still have a system were Darren Wilson and Daniel Pantaleo are still walking free for similar crimes. So some may look at this as a step forward which is true but this is a step forward with a million steps to go just to get caught up.

  1. Shame, isn’t it, that despite the popular belief that extrajudicial executions by police are “isolated incidents” it is in fact an officer’s indictment that is unusual?

    I ain’t holding my breath either.
