Police Brutality is like High Blood Pressure a silents killer in America .
HOW can law enforcer protect and serve when their no trust? Oh so sad when parents lose their children to the Officer of the Law. When there is no justice their is no peace .when our children and our people life is devalued by the justice system that was supposed to protect us and allow justice to work it self out in the court of law not to be beaten or gun down in the street.
What is police brutality? according to Wikipedia "Police brutality is the intentional use of excessive force, usually physical, but potentially also in the form of verbal attacks and psychological intimidation, by a police officer."

Father of unarmed victim says: in Savanna Georgia Port WentworthPolice Murdered My son Deshone Travis.
Mr Travis said his son had just turned 20 in May and had graduated from Groves High School where he played sports. "He was a good kid, and I mean he looked like a kid so I don't know how these police officers could say they were afraid of my son and feared for their lives so they shot and kill an unarmed young man .
" Mr. Travis stated his son Deshone went from being a kid that was not involved in a crime to being a robbery suspect, to being someone who was bad, and that's wrong, it wasn't true. Algerene McKinnon, the man who lived in the Newport subdivision home told us he disagreed with the police assessment of what happened. McKinnon said police had indicated they wanted to search Deshones' car, but then gave him back his keys.
"And his dad was on the way," McKinnon said. McKinnon said he thinks Deshone assumed he was free to go so he went to the car and was backing away. McKinnon said officers were not behind the car, but rather to the side on the grass. He said one officer from Pooler followed Deshone to the passenger side of the car after Deshone got inside the vehicle.
'He told him to get out but he didn't," he said. McKinnon told me that when the car began moving, that's when officers began shooting from the grassy area to the side. He said on officer walked behind the car and fired. "Their lives were not in danger, the one guy actually walked behind the car," McKinnon told me. Mr. Travis says the last words he told his son were
"I'm on the way." He says it's hard to comprehend what happened during the ten minute drive that led to his son's death. "the people at the hospital told me Deshone had been shot three times," he told us. But he doesn't believe his son was at fault. It's clear what they did was wrong. So as far as I see it, these officers are responsible for murdering my son, that's how I see it," Mr. Travis said. The GBI is investigating the shooting. Two officers from Port Wentworth are on administrative leave.
The father of unarmed Deshone Travis who was shot and killed by Port Wentworth police officers believes the officers murdered his son.
Robert Travis doesn't understand why his son is dead. His 20 year old son, Deshone Lamar Travis was shot and killed by Port Wentworth Police early on the morning of June 26.
Robert Travis, was in contact with his son on a cell phone moments before the police gave the victim back his keys to vehicle. The victim apparently thinking he was free to leave property was then shot by officers as he backed down the driveway to the street.
