*A Houston man who was ambushed as he got into his vehicle was shot and killed by two men who claimed to be bounty hunters. Walter Hutchins was 31. He was a new father with a baby just a few months old. Now his child will grow up without him.
Hutchins’ death was a scene reminiscent of the few seconds it took for a Minneapolis police officer to shoot and kill Amir Locke last month. Also, it reminds me of how Andrew Brown was killed last year in Elizabeth City, N.C. when members of a SWAT team shot him in the back of the head after they said he tried to drive away from them while trying to serve a search warrant.
There is a growing energy in the United States that says a Black person’s life has no value. Click on the video above to find out why the people who shot and killed Hutchins could get away with his murder.
