Killing unarmed black women screaming "I'm pregnant," isn't enough. Now they just show up at your window.

A white Texas police officer shot & killed Atatiana Jefferson in her home while she was playing video games with her nephew. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
The cop was responding to a call for an “open structure” in Forth Worth at about 2:30 a.m. when he saw someone inside the home, standing near a window.

The officer, who was looking stupid in the backyard, then pulled out his gun, despite the fact that there was no threat.
“Put your hands up. Show me your hands!” the officer can be heard yelling in bodycam footage before firing through the window.

The resident, later identified as #AtatianaJefferson, 28 — was killed in the 3-second gunfire and pronounced dead at the scene. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
Let me repeat. She was playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew. Rest In Peace Atatiana Jefferson. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
How the fuck do white mass shooters get taken into custody with courtesy. But black aunties playing video games "in their home" with their nephew -- get executed within 3 seconds, before police even know who they're shooting at. What if that 8-year-old child was at the window?
We live in a country that allows police to kill unarmed people over and over again, while it gets swept under the rug like it's normal.

A silent government is a complicit government.

These are murderers with badges and something needs to be done.
#AtatianaJefferson #SayHerName Black people aren't even safe in their own home. Everyone should be furious about this. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
The Fort Worth PD is following a familiar script -- kill an unarmed black person, and then try to justify it with irrelevant facts.

That's what we're witnessing with the #AtatianaJefferson murder. Just admit, police are programmed to kill black people. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
.@ewarren @KamalaHarris @CoryBooker @JulianCastro @SenSanders If elected president, what are your immediate plans to hold killer cops accountable and combat police harrassment/murder. Will black people finally feel secure and receive justice in America. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
