Memorial Portrait Poster of Brandon Jones, killed by Cleveland Police on March 15, 2015
"Brandon was coming out of a corner store with stolen items in the early morning hours. Someone called the cops. They came and one of them grabbed Brandon, holding a gun to his head. He fired and killed Brandon. I went to the funeral and the family was heartbroken and they don't understand why they’re hated so much by these police for being Black. Even though the cop's partner said he didn't have to shoot, the cop was exonerated in July, 2017. Brandon's mother, Tanya Brown was quoted as saying she hadn't expected justice, because cops can kill with impunity."--Bill Swain
