In the United States, dozens of students have taken to the streets of the city of Seattle to demand justice for a pregnant black woman, who was shot dead by the police.

Dakotah Lilly, a member of Students and Youth for a New America, believes unfortunately such incidents are no longer “a rare occurrence” in the United States, adding that black people are being killed by police officers on a daily basis because there is absolutely no repercussions for police brutality.

“Black people and to a lesser extent Latino people are routinely gunned down with immunity by rogue police officers and the unfortunate part of the equation is that this happens every day in the United States … This is an outrageous problem that just continues to get worse,” Lilly told Press TV in an interview on Thursday.
