cincinatti lynchings (trigger warning)

I need serious help from any of y’all if you can give it. A little over a month ago, my friend’s little brother was found hanging from a tree in the woods in Cincinnati, Ohio. The police barely did an investigation, and almost immediately ruled it a “suicide”; which: WHAT BLACK MAN HANGS HIMSELF FROM A TREE IN THE WOODS AS A MEANS TO COMMIT SUICIDE

And we knew we had to do something, but didn’t know what.

Now today I just got a text message from that same friend saying that ANOTHER black man was found the same way a few miles from where her brother was found. The police, once again, are calling it a “suicide”.

My friend is looking to get in contact with the other family, but in the meantime, if any of you have any resources or ideas or anything for fighting back against the Cincy PD, it would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Feel free to pass this around anywhere: blogs, Tumblr, wherever. If you can help, send an e-mail to my friend at sarah.m.underwood@gmail.com. I’m at a loss and so is she.

Please reblog or otherwise spread the word if you can. Heavy shit.
