MY DREAM CIRCUSTANCES IF I'M TO BE KILLED BY A WHITE POLICE OFFICER
A wish list by a young black male.
- •That Sufjan Stevens is playing from either my car stereo or iPhone to help combat any racial stereotypes that may arise.
- •That the eyewitness video is shot in proper 16x9 [landscape] with clean audio and is uploaded to the internet in a resolution no lower than 720p. #nofilter too.
- •That the officer firing the gun is precise enough to have his initial shots kill me, as to avoid the painful and futile wait for an ambulance while I bleed out with my hands cuffed behind my back.
- •That my roommate has the forethought to log in to my various social media accounts to remove profile pictures where I’ve taken selfies in grocery store security cameras.
- •That the situation which escalates into lethal force being used against me has mundane beginnings, like jaywalking or me asking where "Juice Served Here" is.
- •That until the day of my execution, I continue to have a clean criminal record and have it be well known that I am an active, and contributing member of this society.
