Story Number 2: Tanisha Anderson

The idea is that when you and I see and say her name, you will know her story and can find out more about her story and who she was, as there is more to the story than how police brutality killed a young mentally ill black mother: Tanisha Anderson

“On Nov. 12, 2014, Tanisha Anderson died while suffering a mental break while in police custody. The two officers who responded that night reportedly took down Anderson in front of her east Cleveland home and restrained her face down. Anderson appeared to stop breathing. Emergency Medical Services didn’t arrive until 45 minutes later.”

Her mom: “Speak out. Make some changes,” Johnson said. “And maybe we can change some laws for the mentally ill. Because Tanisha’s never coming back.”
