    Framing the issue is a constant, but to offer solutions, resolutions, a panacea of sorts, is what's always missing, as in the case below.

    #SayHerName #SymoneMarshall


    Dear Clyde,

    This week, we learned that yet another Black woman, Symone Marshall, died while in custody at a Texas jail. In a case disturbingly similar to those of Sandra Bland and Gynnya McMillen, Symone died from a lack of medical attention after she was taken to jail rather than a hospital after a terrible car accident.1 ...



    Please tell the Department of Justice to investigate the deaths of Black women, girls and trans women in the criminal justice system.

    Sincerely,

    Arisha, Rashad, Scott, Enchanta and the rest of the team at ColorOfChange.org

    Former guard admits he didn't check on Sandra Bland before she died, lawyer says


    A former guard at the Waller County Jail told the attorney of Sandra Bland's mother under oath that he falsified entries on a jail log, making it appear as though he had checked on Bland in the hour before she was found dead, when he had not.

    According to a report from the Houston Chronicle, a source familiar with the state's investigation of Bland's death confirmed prosecutors were aware of the falsified records, but a Waller County grand jury decided not to indict anyone with the sheriff's office ...

    Officer says prosecutors silenced him in Sandra Bland case


    ... Among the things Prairie View officer Michael Kelley said this week that he wanted to tell a grand jury: Bland appeared to have marks on her forehead after a confrontation with state trooper Brian Encinia, who pulled her over last July for allegedly failing to signal while changing a lane; Encinia was on the phone with a supervisor after arresting her because he didn't know what charge she should face; and the police report Encinia ultimately submitted left out key details ...

    Say her name, Korryn Gaines, 23.


    Korryn Gaines is the ninth black woman shot and killed by police this year


    ... According to police, no one responded to 10 minutes of door knocking, even though they could hear several people inside. When officers obtained a key to the apartment, they found Gaines sitting on the floor — her 5-year-old son was wrapped in one of her arms. In her other hand was a shotgun.

    Around 3 p.m., after several hours of negotiation, police say Gaines raised the gun at officers and told them that she would kill them if they did not leave. The officers opened fire ...

    Three officers with the Baltimore County police arrived at Korryn Gaines’s apartment around 9:20 a.m. on Monday to serve warrants to her as well as a man who also resided there.

    The Deafening Silence Around Police Violence Against Black Women And Girls

    HuffPost


    ... This disparity is part of a larger, startling pattern of violence against black women being overlooked when it comes to police brutality targeting black people. We must remember that the racial biases in policing that lead to black men being victims of violence also apply to black women, even though their stories are less visible, Black women bear a double burden ― carrying the weight of a weaponized skin color and the invisibility of a silenced gender.
