What's A Black Life Worth In Trump's America? Four Bucks, Evidently. Oops, Scratch That. Four Cents.
In a stunning sign of the times, a Florida jury has decided there's really no problem with cops shooting and killing Gregory Vaughn Hill Jr., 30, because he was playing loud music in his own garage while drunk. After jurors found police not liable for a wrongful death - ie their actions weren't excessive - they awarded Hill's family $4 compensation for his death - $1 to his mother, $1 to each of his children. The grievous punchline: Because Hill was drunk, he was found 99% responsible for his own death, bringing the award to pennies. Because America.
