Hilari Styles vents via social media Thursday afternoon about her nephew’s death.
Wednesday her family confirmed that the 22-year-old that was killed in a car crash fleeing authorities was her nephew. Although the media and news are making him out to be the bad guy she delivers a post on Facebook to challenge people’s mind to view things in a different way.
I have struggled all night and all day to find the words to say. On yesterday we confirmed that the 22 year old young man in Garland who was killed in the car crash fleeing the police was my nephew. I have read numerous stories that have done everything possible to demonize him and make him into a monster. The truth is he was a 22 year old kid who was afraid of consequences.
I’m sure you read the police report and of course I can’t convince you that the news is often biased and fake but I will say that he wasn’t anything like that story! I’m livid and I can’t even comprehend much right now. Pray for my family and my nephews legacy. There was so much wrong with the way this went down.
We learned that when the Garland police arrived on the scene even though he had been ejected from the car, they demanded that he turn over, after he was none responsive they forcefully flipped him over and handcuffed him. The witness made eye contact with my nephew and said that she saw his life leave his body. As he lay there dead or dying a fireman arrived on the scene and based on further detail decided that he would kick him to see if he was alive.
Don’t fucking tell me how to feel about racism police and white supremacy because I have real shit popping in my life daily that would make most of you slit your wrists! I fight not only for myself but for the voiceless and disenfranchised people who you don’t include or think about in your “blackingham palace” rants!
I can’t express to you how painful it is to experience a loss of this magnitude but what I will say is that my nephew will not die in vain.
