Charleena Lyles was a Black pregnant mother of 4 who had called police to report a burglary.
Upon arrival at her apartment, Police claim Charleena held a knife, she was then shot by police 7 times, in the presence of her children.
Charleena was a survivor of domestic violence and may have suffered from mental health challenges.
Studies have shown that police officers kill people with mental illnesses and disabilities at a disproportionately higher rate.
Being in a mental health crisis shouldn't be a death sentence.
Charleena's Life Mattered and she deserves justice.
