Police in Canada Get Away with Killing Black People
“It’s just the mindsets of the entire police force in which they don’t see us as human and if a life is lost of ours, they just don’t care."
Andrew Loku was shot and killed by police last July. But the public doesn’t know who did it.
When the Special Investigations Unit announced that the officer who killed him would not face charges, it led to a protest that has lasted over a week, day and night. Protestors have set up a tent city in Toronto, demanding the name of the officer who killed Andrew Loku to be released and for more accountability when police kill or beat black citizens.
Desmond goes to the site of the demonstration to speak to the protestors.
