Ferguson’s New Police Chief  Wants Community Policing

10 Rules to Help Black Boys Survive

By Marian Wright Edelman NNPA Columnist Like so many, I have been deeply disturbed by the senseless loss of Black male lives at the hands of law enforcement officials. I was particularly affected by Tamir Rice’s senseless death – a 12-year-old sixth grader who loved drawing, basketball, playing the drums, and performing in his school’s drum line.
