Friday fanfare: "41 Shots"
Nothing changes.

A black man was shot by cops even though he hadn't actually done anything wrong. He took out his wallet so he could identify himself to the cops (who thought he matched the description of a serial rapist). They opened fire and shot 41 times.

This happened in the Bronx in 1999.

Nothing changes.

Bruce Springsteen wrote this song for Amadou Diallo. It applies just as much to Alton Sterling and Philado Castile.
