Police Kill 73 Year Old Man

Police Kill 73 Year Old Man, Family Claims Cover-Up

This 73 year old cancer survivor, Bernard Monroe was enjoying a barbecue and some family time when the police arrived to question his son Shawn Monroe. At the time of this incident Monroe had no standing arrest warrants pending. The media of course make a point of letting the public know that Shawn has a lengthy record. Monroe was shot by Louisiana Police and his family is alleging racism and a police cover-up.

Here is a quote from the town’s police chief
“If I see three or four young black men walking down the street, I have to stop them and check their names,” said [Homer, Louisiana Police Chief Russell] Mills, who is white. “I want them to be afraid every time they see the police that they might get arrested. We’re not out there trying to abuse and harass people—we’re trying to protect the law-abiding citizens locked behind their doors in fear.”
