‘Why is it that our people are still dying today in police custody? The great white legal system hasn’t worked out what to do about this terrible situation, but it all points to the bad treatment of our people when they are incarcerated in prisons. Black people have always been on the other end of the policeman’s boot…THE KILLING TIMES ARE STILL WITH US.’
