Another dog shot down by police

From the Huffington Post:

The family said the officer wanted to interview a neighbor and was walking across the front yards of homes on the street when the shooting happened. The Reeves family was not involved in the burglary investigation that brought the officer to their neighborhood. Vern barked and ran toward the officer, prompting the shooting, the family said… “it’s devastating…He was a member of our family… It’s no different from it being a person.”

Stand against racism in Ithaca

From the The Shawn Greenwood Working Group:

Thank you to everyone who came out for last Tuesday’s community conversation at the A.M.E. Zion Church. We were able to put Mayor Myrick’s proposed replacement of Gino Bush as a commissioner on the Community Police Board (CPB) into the larger context of systemic racism. Common Council will vote on this issue on Wednesday, June 5, and we need your help.

This conversation can’t stop here.
