About Deven Guilford

I used to live about 10 minutes away from where he was killed. Cops out there mess with everybody, except white conservative looking people in nice cars. They pull over young people, people with cars in bad shape, and especially minorities. The thing is that most of the white people in that area supported the cop. I think the cop was way out of line. But you know what? On social media, nobody from the "all lives matter" crowd said a damn thing about that boy being killed. You know who actually stood up and said something on social media? Black Lives Matters activists were the majority of online comments denouncing the officer's actions. You see, when you are white, you can dress a certain way, act a certain way, and assimilate into the white sub-society and fly under the radar. In that area of Michigan (Eaton county) I have been pulled over for no reason by those pricks just because I was with my black and/or Mexican friends. Black and brown people can't fake it. They are profiled by the police constantly ask over America. Especially in their own neighborhoods. But also in rural areas. "You boys don't look like you're from around here" sound familiar? Police brutality affects all of us, regardless of race. But we will never, ever know what it's like to be a minority and face profiling and stereotyping by the police. And it goes to the top of our entire "justice" system.
