SAY HER NAME
On August 13, 2014, Michelle Cusseaux, a 50-year-old mentally ill African American woman from Phoenix, AZ, was shot while police were serving a court-ordered mental-health pickup. According to police reports, Cusseaux wouldn’t open the door and police forced their way inside. Sergeant Percy Dupra shot Cusseaux when she was found with a hammer raised above her head, which police deemed “threatening” and claimed “self-defense.” We will continue to #SayHerName.
