Aggressive use of force by authority.

Yes, the mother may have “over-reacted” as some people have said. But with the rampant murdering of people who fit into the category of “Black”, can you blame her especially since it seems like she was pulled over in an area without traffic/ witnesses.

Why shoot into her van loaded with children as she is moving away from police?  The children are sitting in the back of the van!

She did eventually pull over, but near a business where the authorities will be less likely to destroy her and her children without witnesses.
