Poet's Notes about The Poem

NPR reported 'some protesters' but there were thousands.

http: //

The policeman has been charged with 1st degree murder.

The shooting happened a year ago but the Chicago police suppressed the video until court action forced its release. In Minneapolis, police have not released the video of Jamar Clark, whom a witness said was handcuffed, being shot.
