Which side are you on?
#RiseUpOctober

In 2014, at least 1100 people were killed by police, the highest number on record in the past few decades, according to a new study by the Washington Post and Bowling Green State University. The study also revealed that for every 1000 killed, only one officer is convicted of any kind of crime.

This year to date, at least 897 people have been killed by cops. The question is posed sharply for all of us.
