The Execution of Michael Brown

Michael Brown, this 18 year old boy, “not man,” who was jay walking across the street with his friend was stop by this police officer not because he just stole cigars from a store, but because he was target for jay walking across the street. A real officer would not stop him for something so petty unless he was racial profiling him. Zimmerman did the same thing to Trayvon Martin and he was not even a real cop. This kid who just graduated from high school was shot four times in the arm running from the police. When he stopped, turned around, and raised both hands in the air to surrender, he was then shot two times in the forehead. This young black kid, “not man” was executed in broad daylight by a white police officer, a person of authority, who supposes to protect all citizens, no matter their race or creed. It troubles me how they protected this police officer since day one by not showing his picture, at first they didn’t give his name, and they have yet to press charges. It’s just sad, I pray to God that they will bring him to justice because what he did is inhuman and it’s injustice. The question is, “What did this 18 year old boy do to deserve to be shot four times in the arm and twice in the head after he surrender to the cop?” He didn’t have a weapon on him. Think about this America, “This could have been your child.”
