Police Brutality in North Minneapolis

June 16, 2016

 

You hear about police brutality all over the United States of America, but when it hits home the cut is deeper. On the night of November 15th, 2015, 24 year old Jamar Clark was gunned down by the Minneapolis PD at 12:45 am on the front steps of his home. The MPD were called because of a noise complaint from a someone in the neighborhood. After words were exchanged, Mr. Clark ended up in handcuffs and then moments later with a bullet in his body. Many people saw what happened that night and many witnesses and community members were torn by the results. A few days later, there were live protests at the Minneapolis Police Department and many were upset, hurt and simply curious on why this young man was killed for no reason what so ever. The

protests simply rose questions in regards to the tapes, the reasoning behind the killing and the paid administrative leave that the two cps were placed on. On my thanksgiving break from school, I decided to walk to the protest since it is only a few blocks away from my house. While I was out there, I decided to take pictures of the protesters and simply have a conversation with them and that didn't sit to well with many of them. However, a few did let me take pictures but most of it was landscape photography.
