In Philadelphia, there is more outrage, protesting, and just broken hearts. Another young black man has died at the hands of the police for little to no reason. Yesterday, as a video went viral of young, white, men destroying a police vehicle with cops in it, cops were killing a man.
Walter Wallace, Jr. was 27-years-old, and said to suffer from autism and mental illness. If there was anyone who needed help, or just some compassion, it was this young man. Instead, due to his struggles, this man was killed.
The police were called, over a man holding a small knife, and encountered Walter Wallace, Jr. Demanding him to drop his knife, two police officers drew guns on him. They told his mother to “stand back,” as they opened fire, shooting Wallace, several times, killing him on the street, as his mother screamed for her child.
