St. Louis rapper Tef Poe told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday that he has “come to terms with the fact that in the United States of America it is perfectly legal for police officers to murder people of color.”
Poe’s comments come as Americans have taken to the streets across the country to voice their frustration at a grand jury decision not to indict the police officer who shot dead an unarmed black 18-year-old in August.
The idea that a police office can kill someone without accountability is something “we’re coping with and that’s the reality that we live in.”
“There is no justice when you are murdered by a police officer when you are a person of color – that is a harsh fact to embrace and accept in today’s time.”
