Killed holding a hairbrush
I'm disturbed over the death of a Bedford-Stuyvesant teen who was killed by police on Monday.
What police thought was a gun he was carrying turned out to be a hairbrush.
His mother called the police for what was described as a domestic dispute. What kind of message does this send the community, particularly where it involves the death of another Person of Color through excessive force?
