    To be a mother is to live in a state of heightened emotions: more joy each time you see your child smile, more excitement than you ever thought you could feel watching someone tie their shoes. There’s also more fear. Fear that the part of you that goes off into the world every day could meet harm. In the United States, where police brutality is among the leading causes of death for Black men and boys and racism has been linked to poor mental health outcomes, that fear isn’t a hypothetical for mothers of Black children. It’s a daily reality.

    Being killed by police isn't necessarily police brutality .

    Your article is a lie.

    Cops killing in self defense or defense of others isn't "police brutality".

    In this case....it's a fact. The link cites a pdf on all police killings, self defense included, and uses those numbers to make a claim about police brutality.

    The author is either too dumb to write an article or deliberately lying.

    Not even close. Homicide is the number 1 killer of black males (unfortunately black men are the only ones holding that distinction) coming in at nearly 3000 for the year 2018

    while that same year police only killed 209

    By far the majority of blacks are killed by blacks, this article is in fact a lie. Figures do not lie but liars figure.
