White Silence Equals Violence: Awaiting a Verdict


White Silence Equals Violence: Awaiting a Verdict

Kathy Kelly

On Wednesday morning, here in Minneapolis, six jurors decided beyond a reasonable doubt that I am guilty as charged and my co-defendant, Dan Wilson was found innocent. The court case stems from an action protesting the execution of Jamar Clark, age 24, who died in the early morning of November 15, 2015 outside a north Minneapolis apartment complex. Two Minneapolis police officers, Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze, were involved in the shooting. Jamar Clark died after a bullet was fired directly into his head.


Thank you for this, Kathy. And for the your bravery in protesting the massive injustices perpetrated against all of us - especially people of color. It seems that every day a new atrocity occurs. We cannot remain silent in the escalation of the militarized police.
