Slaughter on Seventh Avenue
By Bill Van Auken - 14 August 2012
New York City cops chased down and executed Darrius Kennedy in Times Square last Saturday...Similar police killings take place every day and in every part of the country. Generally, they go unreported and unnoticed outside of the immediate area in which they take place. What distinguished the shooting last Saturday was that it unfolded in the middle of the afternoon in one of the most heavily traversed thoroughfares in the US, witnessed by hundreds of horrified tourists and passersby, some of whom fled in panic while others recorded the scene on their cell phones.
