Raleigh gang truce inspired by the views of children

The seeds of this month’s truce among members of five street gangs in Raleigh were sown last summer when gang member James Elvin Alston III, a 23-year-old father of three, was shot to death just before speaking at a gang truce meeting he helped organize at Southeast Raleigh’s Chavis Park.

Austin police arrest black teacher, tell her African-Americans have 'violent tendencies'

Breaion King was pulled from her car and thrown to the ground by a police officer during a traffic stop in Austin, Texas in June 2015. The police department publicly released the patrol car video in July 2016. It shows a white officer violently throwing King to the ground, and then another white officer telling her black people have "violent tendencies" and that's why white people are afraid. The video here was shown during a police conference and footage of police advancing through clips has been cut out.
