Stand Up for Love - October 22 Coalition

October 22 Coalition honors Stolen Lives in the United States of America. Families, friends, and concerned individuals across the country unite to protest police violence that steals hundreds of lives annually. The usual victims are black and brown people who lack wealth. Since last October, however, numerous Caucasians have also fallen victim to overuse of force by police - even in affluent neighborhoods. Sadly, the dead include elders, children, and disabled people. It has been estimated (because Americans are not allowed to keep records on this) that roughly 50% of victims in death-by-police episodes were mentally ill people, like my brother, Larry Neal. Destiny's Child sings about caring at the video embedded below and at on YouTube.

Remembering those killed by police violence

A few of my efforts to stand up for love in obedience to God's will that we speak for the poor and oppressed and everyone who is appointed to destruction ~Proverbs 31:8-9.

Protecting the "right" of police to kill without accountability seems to be their duty.

On behalf of Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill, I would like to extend condolences also to families of police officers who died while working to keep society safe and civil.

Human rights advocates are not anti-police. We are anti-police brutality.
