A number of aggrieved children took to the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota to add their voice in kicking against the barbaric acts unleashed on Black people by the police.
One the most adversely affected group of police brutality is children. As a result of the terror some police officers unleash on Black people, a child may lose a breadwinner, a father, a mother, a brother, a sister or even own life. This happens to leave an indelible emotional scar with them which they have to live with for the rest of their lives.
In a way to register their displeasure about the barbaric act against Black people, some sections of children embarked on a protest march on Saturday. The peaceful protest march was comprised of about 250 children. These young activists marched to J.J. Hill Montessori School in St. Paul, Minnesota, expressing their discontentment about the death of Philando Castile as reported by the Minnesota Public Radio.
The late Philando Castile was an employee of the J.J. Hill Montessori School; working as a lunch man. Those who knew him described him as a loving gentleman who served the kids with so much love and affection. Castile was shot to death by on July 6th by a St. Anthony police Officer, Jeronimo Yanez, during a traffic stop.
The aggrieved young activists marched for nearly a mile holding handcrafted signs hoisted above their heads to broadcast their message. “No justice, no peace,” “Stop the killing,” and “Don’t shoot, I’m 5,” were among a few touching messages on the placards the children held.
The organizer of the march, Carneada Milton told WCCO-TV that, “They’re affected by it and they see it just like we do, but they are not absorbing it the way we do.”
