Have You Heard Of Kalief Browder?

Have you heard of Kalief Browder?

On May 15, 2010, he was walking home with a friend when a cop car pulled up next to them. They had a man in the car who was riding around with them that night trying to find the “two black men” who had allegedly robbed his brother a few weeks earlier. Kalief was placed under arrest and sent to Rikers Island for three years. He was 16 years old.

Out of the 1,000 days that he spent in prison, 800 of those were in solitary confinement.

The entire time Kalief maintained his innocence despite the horrific violence and brutality he suffered from other inmates and the correctional staff.

Kalief was later acquitted of all charges. He was innocent the entire time.

This documentary is crucial to watch. It shows the horrific injustice of the “justice” system and tells the story of another young black man in the wrong place at the wrong time. I say “another” because this happens every day.

#BlackLivesMatter at all times. If you watch this and aren’t outraged your moral compass is inherently flawed.

Kalief, I’m enraged and heartbroken that your life had to end this way. You did nothing to deserve the horrendous things that happened to you.

We must do better.

  • MAN. This past month has been pretty dreamy. Visiting friends and family back east and then them visiting me here in Colorado…It’s been a pretty amazing summer so far. Can’t complain.

Time to get busy and back to work, but I’ll still be posting photos from the hikes, camps, and adventures because it’s good to have a balance of both life and work, not just online but offline too.

  • Stopped at Steam before dropping on @danielle_conyers at the airport. Spicy chai tea lattes can soothe the soul when one of your favorite people leaves.

  • Camp food is the best. My speciality is cooking breakfast. So you make me burgers and I’ll make you scramble. Deal?
