In the U.S., outrage is mounting in Indianapolis following a string of killings by police that took place last week in a span of less than 24 hours. On Wednesday night, 21-year-old Dreasjon “Sean” Reed, a Black man, was fatally shot by an officer following a car chase that was live-streamed on Facebook. The following day, 19-year-old African American McHale Rose was shot and killed after what police described as a planned ambush against the officers. And in a third, unrelated incident that same day, a police officer killed 23-year-old Ashlynn Lisby, who was pregnant, by hitting her with his car as he drove to work. At a protest Saturday over Sean Reed’s killing, police attempted to disperse crowds by deploying pepper balls and arrested at least one person.
