And 28 people are killed by cows every year, too

How do you define the problem and its causes?
if a kid showed up in a Blue Lives Matter shirt
Is this a reference to LEOs or to TTUN? If it's the latter, it shouldn't be protected under the First Amendment.
I found myself thinking the exact same thing when I first read DOJ's report (linked above) documenting the Baltimore PD's constitutional violations.

Whereas when a police officer shoots a black suspect, some people will actually claim that the suspect was merely "driving while black" or otherwise got killed primarily for "being black."
I wish we could dismiss every one of those claims as lacking merit, but unfortunately we still have a long way to go to achieve a colorblind justice system. I still remember just how startling I found DOJ's report on the Baltimore Police Dept. It gave me a much clearer understanding that there are plenty of things that do actually happen that I would never accept in my own community, and shouldn't be acceptable for any American. So I'm glad to see this young citizen giving these complicated issues some thought and encouraging others to do the same.
