I have worked on hundreds of cases of police brutality. 

 

When families come to me asking for help in achieving justice for their loved one who has been egregiously harmed or murdered, I give it everything I have. 

 

Something I have seen happen time and time again is the media’s attempt to deter justice by dredging up the past of these victims. They demonize Black men, women and children in an attempt to justify their deaths. 

 

There is no criteria for who deserves justice when they’ve been slain by police. When I take on a case, I have already decided that I do not care what the victim I’m fighting for has or hasn’t done. 

 

In the rural town of Wolfe City, Texas, Jonathan was known as an inspirational leader. As a Black man, Jonathan was seen as a bridge builder between the Black and white communities of his small town. Part of this bridge building involved maintaining a good relationship with the local police, and that’s exactly what Jonathan did. 

 

On Oct. 3, the same police murdered him.

 

On today’s episode of The Breakdown, Shaun unpacks and explains who Jonathan was and why we should fight for him.

Ep. 332 - Jonathan Price & Why We Should Fight for All Victims of Police Violence

Feb 05, 2020

Full DESCRIPTION:

This weekend a wonderful brother named Jonathan Price was murdered by police in a rural town outside of Dallas, Texas. People are now sharing an old Facebook post he made where he spoke of how much respect he had for police - as if this means we shouldn't fight for him. I very strongly disagree. Let me explain why.
