Good News: Pastors Are Sending In Their Photos To Be Used As A Target Practice Instead Of Photos Of Black People.
Oh, I love this. I cried at their kindness and courage! There's a movement under foot of pastors from around the country who are sending in their photos to be used as target practice instead of mug shots of black teens. "Use Me Instead", says clergy to police who use photos of black men for target practice.
The North Miami Beach Police Department was forced to stop using the mugshots of black men for target practice after they were discovered by a woman whose brother’s photo was among those found riddled with bullets (although it took a city council resolution to get them to do it).
