Hitting Home.

Winston (Redondo Beach, CA.) shares his perspectives with a friend at a public park concerning two recent violent incidents resulting in death between a black male and police enforcement. Both scenes were caught on video.  The April 4 shooting death of Walter Scott in South Carolina, involving white law enforcement officer, Michael Slager has caught national headlines and widespread discussion of racism.  The second case in discussion occured in downtown Los Angeles, March 1, 2015 involving Charly “Africa” Leundeu Keunanga, a homeless black male on Skid Row and multiple officers. Police have said Keunanga had robbed and assaulted another Skid Row male. Arriving at the scene, a rookie officer's holstered pistol was grabed, prompting three others to fire.
