Two more unarmed youth gunned down and murdered by police, including a 12 year-old boy

The latest victim of police violence is a 12 year old innocent and unarmed boy from Cleveland.  It was reported that he was shot and killed for having an air pistol that a rookie police officer mistook for a real gun.

And in New York an innocent 28 year old man was killed by a rookie police officer in an unlit stairwell.

Who will protect citizens from police officers who shoot first and ask questions later?!

Isn’t it time we hold police officers and their superiors responsible for these murders, and instead of placing them on paid administrative leave with benefits, just put them in jail as is done for murderers?

Police officers are public servants, not soldiers in Kabul fighting the Taliban.  Our hometowns are not battlegrounds.  In the United Kingdom police officers ordinarily are not armed and behave as true public servants.  It is time to disarm our police officers and transform them from soldiers to public servants so they stop killing innocent citizens.
