This is a piece I wrote as a cover story for the L A Weekly about systematic, institutionalized abuse of Black and Brown youth in Los Angeles by law enforcement. I don’t have to tell you because you already know, it’s gotten worse since. Much worse. Then Weekly art director was somehow unable to understand that the piece was about the victimization of Black and Brown youth and not about the victimization of the LAPD. The featured image here is the one I submitted for the cover. The one he went with is a some kind of stock image with generic graphics. Not art about it.
