Kajuan Raye Chicago Police Shooting

Saturday, November 26, 2016
More details about the Kajuan Raye Chicago police shooting have been released.  The sergeant who killed the 19-year-old claimed that he pointed a gun at him twice.  Authorities have not found a weapon.  The shooting occurred on Wednesday, November 23, 2016, one day before Thanksgiving.  The sergeant responded to a call of a battery in progress.

The sergeant claims that Kajuan matched the description of the battery suspect.  As mentioned above, the sergeant also claimed that Kajuan had a gun therefore it's difficult to believe any information he provides.  In a city where law enforcement has been unable to combat gun violence, it's difficult to accept any mistakes made by police officers.

BLM Protest Chicago

On Black Friday, November 25, 2016, protesters in Chicago marched, demanding changes to the criminal justice system.  The activists disrupted holiday shopping in order to raise awareness about police misconduct.  Protesters blocked stores along the Magnificent Mile.  Less people came out this year compared to last year due to the cold weather.

We're praying for change in Chicago.  Gang violence must decrease and police officers have to build bonds with the city's residents.  Until then, the violence will continue.  "Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success."  -Henry Ford
