Some how those 4 young men are victims of some grand conspiracy against them and black community. It’s the white people fault. Blame the whites

The truth

Eric Adams , AOC , and all those others still want to defund the police & shut down Rikers. Mayor Bill De blasio still wants to keep painting BLM every where.
There’s more black on black crime going on. The black community should take more responsibility for their own actions, they can’t blame the police or the white man for their problems.
