Black (& Brown) History: The Marade for Jessica

Some disturbing events have occurred in Denver, and the media has completely ignored it.  The Denver Police and the Denver Sheriffs Office pay out millions of $$$$$ each year in wrongful death settlements.  But in all the discussions of Police Shootings, Denver never comes up in the conversation.  And I ask myself why?

One instance that particularly disturbed me was the Death of Jessica Hernandez:

Perhaps because she was a teenage girl doing a typically stupid teenager thing (driving a stollen car).  But I don't think you should die for being a teenager, doing something that white teenagers do everyday and get a slap on the hand for. 

Yes Jessica, REST IN POWER!
