Jayland Walker‘s homicide at the hands of the Akron Police Department has ignited protests nationwide in his honor in order to push the agenda for justice.

Black lives still matter. They always have and they always will. The citizens of this country will no longer stand idly by and watch police kill brothas and sistas without raising their voices and a whole lot of hell. Such hellraising was afoot in Akron, Ohio where Jayland Walker was gunned down with 60 gunshot wounds from 90 rounds fired by a bevy of police officers. It should be noted that the 30 “misses” are rounds that could have killed multiple people in the same way that an intentional mass shooting would. Maybe these bacon boys should get better trained but we digress.
