Black Deaths Matter

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: April 17, 2021

A call for changes in law enforcement…

Another death. A cop to blame.
An unarmed black man. Say his name!
What simmered all last summer long
is at the boiling point.

When law enforcement apprehends,
the outcome (way too often) tends
to find the victim victimized
by over-reaching force.

They simply must discover ways
to cuff offenders (or to tase)
instead of shooting for the kill
when killing's not deserved.
