Not only have their deaths caused protest all around America, but also all around the world.
However, for some reason, when people protest racial injustice and police brutality, it brings some of the worst out of the police. They have been completely destructive by beating, tasing, pepper spraying, and even running over unarmed citizens that do nothing.
One of the more violent things they have been doing is shooting unarmed peaceful protesters with metal bullets coated with a thin layer of rubber.
Saraneka Martin was one of the people shot, with what the Austin police are calling less lethal ammunition, during the Austin protests and was shot in the stomach and back. This is one of the more tragic stories during the protests around the country not only because she was shot in the stomach and abused by the police, but also because Saraneka was pregnant.
She lied on the ground screaming “my baby, my baby” while people tried to help. Luckily her baby is ok but this could have been so much worse.
Saraneka has since given her side of how she was feeling during this ordeal and showed pics of her wounds from the “less lethal ammunition” and the link to her GoFundMe which the funds will be going to medical expenses.
