Watch J.I.D.’s 7-Minute Freestyle On HOT 97
You have to watch this. Stories about women killed by the police don’t get that much attention from the media. Rekia Boyd was only 22 when she was killed. An off-duty police officer named Dante Servin fired five shots and one of the bullets struck Boyd in the head. She was unarmed. When he was questioned, Servin told investigators that Boyd’s friend pointed a gun at him, and that he fired in self-defence. But the gun that Servin says he saw was never recovered. Boyd’s friend Antonio Cross said he actually had a mobile phone in his hand.
