BALTIMORE (WJZ) — ACLU of Maryland posted a picture Friday afternoon listing the names of some of the black people they said have been killed by police in the state.

“The murder of George Floyd is not a type of new injustice in the U.S. or in Maryland. We have seen over and over and over and over again, Black people being killed by police for centuries. Police are taking people’s lives and then facing few to no consequences. For too many families, their loved ones’ final moments were not caught on camera, and their names and their stories weren’t mentioned on the news, but these families’ pain is still felt. We are deepening our commitment to fighting racial injustice, ending white supremacy, and changing institutions that have failed to protect Black people. Black people, along with our nation, have lost too many lives,”

They listed the names starting with Freddie Gray, who died in police custody in 2015, spurring protesting and rioting in Baltimore.

Baltimore has seen its fair share of protests over the last week, after a Minneapolis man, George Floyd, died in police custody sparking national outrage.

    They should also post the names of people of ALL ethnicities killed by police- it will show what a huge portion of them are black. Whites commit crimes and resist arrest too.

    ACLU, a white liberal run organization who’s policies are diametrically opposed to the success of black people and the black family unit. When will black people realize the white liberal is not are friend.
