whether shooting them, choking them, or simply running them over, cops seem to be killing American citizens at record rates these days.

And memorials like this one by Robyn Hasty of Brooklyn remind us of the death in LIC, Queens, of a foreign exchange language student killed after being in NYC for just a few short months. Killed when a Serve & Protect squad car ran him over, reportedly without any lights or sirens on because they wanted to “creep” up on a knife-wielding suspect.
