Making sense of the world, one story at a time. Host Malika Bilal and journalists from Al Jazeera's international bureaus share their take on the news every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Alvin Cole, a Black teenager, was shot and killed in February, a month after his 17th birthday. The officer accused of killing him is Joseph Mensah with Wisconsin's Wauwatosa Police Department — and Mensah is accused of shooting and killing two other men of color. These shootings haven't seen as much attention as other incidents of police violence in the country, but today, we're telling the story.
