"Where Are...."

Location

Overton High School 1770 Lanier Lane
2854 Arlington Ave
United States

Where are Sandra Bland,  Darrius Stewart, Fredy Gray, Samuel Dubose

The innocent unarmed ones of color

All are sleeping on the hill

 

One pulled over by an officer and claimed to have committed suicide in jail,

One shot & killed by an officer to be mistaken for someone else,

One taken into police custody and died in police van,

One pulled over by an officer and shot to death,

All are sleeping, sleeping, sleeping, sleeping on the hill

   

 Where are Trayvon Martin, Micheal Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice,

  The innocent unarmed ones of color,

  All are sleeping on the hill,


  One killed by man walking down the street,

  One shot multiple times by officer while hands up,

   One in police custody while saying "I cant breathe",

   One killed by an officer who say he mistaken his toy gun for a real gun,

   All are sleeping, sleeping, sleeping, sleeping on the hill
