US Black man fatally shot by North Carolina police a day after Chauvin guilty verdict
Another incident of fatal US police shooting of unarmed Black people has grabbed headlines a day after an ex-police officer was convicted of murdering an African American man last year.
Relatives of Brown told media that he was near his home and in an automobile at the time of the fatal police shooting.
The US police killing came the day after a jury found Derek Chauvin, a white former Minneapolis police officer, guilty of murdering George Floyd last year by kneeling on his neck four nine minutes while he was handcuffed and under arrest.
Floyd’s killing by white police officers brought US racism back into focus and became an emblem of the Black Lives Matter movement. It has, however, not stopped trigger-happy cops from unleashing terror on hapless minorities, including African Americans and Asian Americans.
In an interview with Press TV last week, US-based journalist and political analyst Dr. Abayomi Azikwe said the surge in violence against people of color in the US is a systemic problem rooted in the legacy of slavery and legalized segregation in the country.
