美國警察暴力和種族歧視的事件層出不窮。繼佛格森事件之後,25 日在美東的巴爾的摩市,爆發大規模的抗議,馬里蘭州長 Larry Hogan 在和白宮溝通後,宣布巴爾的摩進入緊急狀態。這次的群眾抗議緣起於一名 25 歲的非裔青年 Freddie Gray,因為遭到警方盤詢時逃跑,而後遭到逮捕,卻疑似因為警方在人行道制伏 Gray 時施力不當,造成 Gray 脊椎斷裂。執法的白人警察 Michael Slager,也並未在第一時間將 Gray 送醫,導致 Gray 被送入手術房時已經回天乏術,他不幸於 19 日在當地的醫院斷氣身亡。

繼這幾年來數起非裔青年 Mike Brown、Eric Garner、以及 Akai Gurley 的死亡事件,美國警察制度性的針對非裔族群的執法不公,尚未能得到司法上的解決。被視為應該 「保護民眾」的公權力,不僅失去執法公正性,更讓種族問題加速地惡化。巴爾的摩此次多數由非裔市民參與的抗議行動,如同佛格森事件,也被主流媒體大肆宣染為「暴力」、「不理性」,而巴爾的摩本地長久以來累積的對於非裔族群的差別對待,和警方的濫用公權力,卻尚未進入大眾對於美國種族紛爭的反思,和為何今天再一次的非裔青年死亡,會造成如此大規模的暴動。 611 more words
