Americans Lose Their Constitutional Rights: No Trial, No Jury, No Judge; The Death Penalty on the Street

Misdemeanors and felonies aren’t supposed to be deserving of the death penalty, yet that’s exactly what police are hashing out to citizens across the streets of the USA.

Professor Jelani Exum explains what’s missing from the deaths of Eric Garner, Mike Brown, and the other 400 people killed by cops each year. Watch her Ted Talk below.

Justice is a terrible thing to waste. Nobody deserves to be shot and killed because they resisted arrest, stole cigarettes or various other encounters. We should be able to trust the police, but instead we worry whether or not a police officer will shoot and kill anyone, even a young boy carrying a toy gun.
