So #RonaldGreene was beaten to death by police after a traffic violation they refuse to identify, and then 7 police officers said he died from a car crash in the police report… One of the cops has since killed himself, still no charges or body cam footage, 17 months…
The governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards, is a Democrat. There should be more pressure on him to release the body cam footage, and if it proves that this was excessive force and ultimately murder like it seems they should all be in prison.

It just never stops. Ronald Greene, know and say his name. Praying for his friends and family. This is becoming our everyday reality and I hope people understand the continuous fight for systemic change is not a moment, but a movement.
