LAWLESSNESS AND DISORDER: AMERICA’S MISTREATMENT OF ITS BLACK CITIZENS

When a seventeen-year-old white boy walks down the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, with a loaded automatic weapon, he is cheered and thanked by the police and offered a water bottle. No matter that he'd killed two people and wounded another. His attorney says it was self-defense, and Kenosha Sherriff Miskinis said the shootings would not have happened had those killed not broken curfew. Later he "clarified" his remarks, but his callousness was frighteningly evident.
