On the night of November 29th 2012 two black drivers, Melissa Williams and Timothy Russell, were chased by 62 police vehicles for 23 minutes throughout greater Cleveland. It ended with a flurry of bullets fired from 13 police officers’ weapons. Williams and Russell both died on the scene. In a tragic case of collective hysteria and abuse of power the numbers can’t be comprehended, nor the grave injustices ever reconciled.
