Black Lives Don’t Matter In Mount Vernon

To Many Unsolved Homicides with No Help from Police Department or City Officials

“I’ve been quiet for awhile preaching that Black Lives Matter, but for the first time and I’m not losing the spirit of who we are, but it’s a fact to me Black Lives don’t matter in Mount Vernon, not at all,” a very emotional Kevin Shaw Sr said at the rally. “I haven’t heard from nobody, not one time, nobody, no police officer, nobody never called me, since my son was murdered up here in Mount Vernon. I’ve been up here 15-20 times… I ain’t get one call, never since June 24, 2015 [18 months later]. Every time I come to Mount Vernon they say they are going to call… I can’t even get my son’s possessions from that night.” WATCH VIDEO
