He was 18 years old. A student at Hidden Valley High School. He was walking down the street near the group home he lived, listening to music with headphones on and *supposedly* holding a broken toy gun. Someone called the police saying he was pointing a gun at traffic, Roanoke County kops drove up behind him *supposedly* deployed two tasers that didn’t work and then shot him three times killing him. Police then investigated themselves, found no wrong-doing, withheld the names of the officers who were responsible and involved, withheld the multiple dashcam videos from the public and his living family (only playing a compilation of edited footage for his brother when faced with legal pressure from the ACLU), and faced no official consequences. Kionte Spencer’s life mattered. His death is a tragedy in#Roanoke. The injustice of his murder is one of the reasons #whytheykneel.
