Andy Lopez in artwork poster

This is a artwork of 13 year old Andy Lopez who was shot and killed by police last year.  He was walking with a toy gun that was made to look real even though it had an orange tip on the end.  The cop was a veteran of the Iraq war and who said he couldn't tell it wasn't real;  supposed he yelled at Andy to stop  This is the problem with the militarization of the police forces around the country; this action has been compared with the shooting of unarmed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
I know I am afraid of the cops and I am a white woman.
