    Sgt. Valerie Deant peered into a stack of garbage at a Medley shooting range last month and saw a photo of her brother. His face had bullet holes.
    Turns out that North Miami Beach police used a photo lineup of men arrested 15 years ago to help its sniper team practice its marksmanship. All of the photos were of black males, one of whom happened to be Woody Deant.
    When the story wasfirst reported by NBC 6this week, it ricocheted around cyberspace, causing considerable consternation at a time when relations between police and the black community have been strained around the country.

    They can't tell me that other cops didn't know what was going on?

    Peace!

    ...


    Thanks for posting this, it was Breaking-News on Sharpton's PoliticsNation yesterday ... And to think that initially, some spokesperson or chief of police tried to justify this mess :facepalm:

    I agree bruh. They could have used other things as their targets like other police in Florida do. Also what get me is when you have black police chiefs that try and act as if this issue is all in our head. Like that LA retired chief casting doubt about what we say as victims.

    I see nothing wrong with any of these.

    ALso, the way I read this:


    Is that it wouldn't have been a problem if they didn't leave it.

    Peace!
