loses three more cases against protesters

That is such a shambles - no witnesses (including the officers arresting them,) and the prosecution arguing that "well, we arrested them, so they must've done something."
I know I sound cynical (and like a broken record) but no one black is surprised by the facts of this case. Especially someone who grew up in the area as I did. This is just the way things are. And it's not that people haven't resisted or pushed back against the system before. Let me be even more cynical and submit that without the violence surrounding the recent protests (or the threat of same) none of this regularly gets addressed. At least not by the media.
