Charlie Parker (via ajazzionata)
Ya know the issue of police brutality has never rang more true to me than recently. The mother of a childhood friend of mine was killed by three cops. They’re probably still on paid leave.
I had a falling out with that friend a couple months back and we haven’t spoken since then, so I don’t know all the details. I seen him weep on the local news as any son would for his mom.
I know these kind of things happen all the time with police, it just has certain acute sort of impact when it hits this close to home. Her family and friends gathered at the place she was killed. Which is literally 6 houses down from mine and over the street on a stack of rocks.
I’d often roam that street as kid, I remember that field of dirt well. It wasn’t right.
