Why #BlackLivesMatter is an important issue

The problem is that Police are using unnessasary force against Black Americans. In most cases the Black american have there hands up with no weapons on them. Or they are pinned to the ground defenseless and are being beaten for not cooperating. This makes no sense because there is video proof of this overuse of force.

"But when you are calling death to police and to kill the police, essentially -- which is what they said -- that's a real problem"
