Time To Stand Up

There are approximately 18K police departments with over half million armed cops in the US. How many police shootings are there each year? How may unarmed citizens have been killed? There is no data available.

As police shootings of unarmed citizens continue, criminal justice experts note that, while national research groups keep statistics on unprovoked shark attacks 53 in 2013, to the number of pigs living in the U.S. which is more than of 64K, there is no reliable data on how many people are shot by police officers every year.

Why Do People Riot?

This is the moment to stand together. Let US insist on police accountability and systemic change. We can't lose another person at the hands of law enforcement. We need to put an end to racial profiling, excessive use of force, and further unconstitutional public safety practices... NOW IS THE TIME.

STAND: Stop, and take action which is non destructive. The time to stand up and demand change in now!
