They identified him as Officer Rusten Sheskey. We are not seeing much of him in the news because the police are protecting him. See, this is why people are marching in the streets. All we want is for the man to be arrested and let him face a jury of his peers. Shooting a man in the back is a cowardly act and I am concerned that officers still think it is acceptable to kill unarmed Black people.

You are right that our current leader enjoys dividing us and seeing everyone fight. In the end of the day, America needs better leadership. They need to pass the George Floyd law so that it becomes illegal to choke a man to death in broad daylight and to enter someone’s home without knocking. What Sheskey did makes me think that we need more accountability for officers. He should not have qualified immunity.

Thanks so much for reading. I know this is a difficult situation.
