Don’t get me wrong, I support our president and I too mourned the death of Robin Williams, but when police militarization, illegal arrests, and police brutality are occurring on a major level in a U.S. city, I think federal acknowledgment of an innocent, black child’s murder and the blatant disregard of an entire U.S. city’s constitutional rights takes precedent over the death of a celebrity.
