You may think that gang violence, police brutality, and kids of all ages getting shot by the people who are supposed to be protecting us and serve us as well as our community, would never happen in your neighborhood, right? Instead of us feeling safe and protected by cops, we are afraid to even step foot outside our house. A 17 year old boy getting shot for not keeping his hands were they were supposed to stay. It is 2018 and these types of situations are currently happening in our community of South Central. More importantly, issues like this are now happening around the world. From 1872 through 2018, police brutality has been a big issue throughout America. How much longer will we let this happen and allow these situations to evolve?
