“Court rules that black men may have legitimate reason to run from police”

DAILY KOS

This week alone at least three new names were added to the already too long list of black boys and men killed by law enforcement. Tyree King, a 13-year-old boy from Columbus, Ohio; Terrence Crutcher in Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina, were all shot to death by police. For black men in America, a seemingly run-of-the-mill police stop can turn deadly in a single moment. Now, even the highest court in Massachusetts is acknowledging that black men may reasonably avoid police interaction, even when they've done nothing wrong.
