Horrific news out of Ferguson today with the alleged lynching of activist Melissa McKinnies’ son Danye Jones, who was just 24 years old.
In a now-deleted Facebook post, McKinnies, who found her son dead, posted extremely graphic images of the young man hanging from a tree. The images are extremely disturbing and continue to be shared throughout social media. Please, view at your own risk.
Unofficial reports are claiming that Jones’ death is being ruled a suicide but in reality its yet another suspicious, ultra-violent death connected to Black activism in Ferguson. Let’s never forget Edward Crawford, DeAndre Joshua and Darren Seals who were all killed following the 2014 Michael Brown protests in similarly questionable circumstances.
