Why Is The Media Quiet About The Death Of 16-Year Old Gynnya McMillen Who Died In A Detention Center?

Why Is The Media Quiet About The Death Of 16-Year Old Gynnya McMillen In Police Custody?

Why is the media quiet about this latest African American dying in police custody?  Why has there not been any news coverage of this beautiful 16-year old girl who died in a detention center.

It’s always the same old story, either suicide or no cause of death found so they say it’s natural causes.

6-year old Gynnya McMillen died in a juvenile detention center in Kentucky and her family is getting no answers and very little response from authorities.

This message came from her sister:

“I’m asking that everyone repost and share my sisters story on your pages and in any groups that will help us get it out there. My 16yr old sister died in custody of a detention center but they’re not giving out any info on how she was found and they’re saying here autopsy shows no cause of death. The news channels only played her story one time. We want justice and Kentucky isn’t giving it to us! Thanks for all the prayers and help. Gynnya McMillen”

    This article says “6-year old” when it means “16-year old”

        Typos show poor attention to detail. A little girl is dead in a detention facility. When was the last time you cared if an inmate died in prison? Thats what I thought.
        Next you will be blaming white cops who have nothing to do with juvenile detention facilities.

    Maybe they aren’t releasing any information because they don’t have any yet. The autopsy proved inconclusive, so they need to wait on toxicology tests. Or are we insinuating the cops killed her, and that’s why we are hearing nothing? Get over yourselves. Every death in prison isn’t a cop’s fault.

    We also don’t hear about every white person who dies in prison, why should we hear about every black person #equality

      because white people don’t have to fear unlawful detainment, police brutality, pulling out a phone or going to simply raise their hands because it may be construed as pulling a weapon out or instigating violence, being judged for the colour of their skin, disregard for human rights, being treated like nothing more than animals, being 3x more likely to go to prison and die there, or even fear of death in prison at all from the hands of officers.
      when white people see the cops, they feel protected. when black people see the cops, they feel scared for their lives. if you’re all for #equality, maybe you should make do something about making sure black kids everywhere aren’t scared for their lives, or are you feeling a bit too cosy there with your white privilege?

    it’s a shame how white people see black people trying to get assistance with help on finding somebody who murdered or might of killed their loved ones and white people get offended because of a race issue it is so that black get it bad from white cops and black cops we do not like cops because they kill of all of blacks also they kill white men to white and black police are just f***** boys they are bullies with badges and gun and a legal right to kill us all. And feel if this had been a 16 year old white a lot would have been said and done I know they treat races differently on the media because my daughter and away at 15 years old what does almost 30 year old Mexican man the media will not do nothing for me calling her just to run away when she left three different states across to be with this man that she met on the internet instead the news did not put nothing on about her until I seen pictures of her thinking she was a white girl and posted her on the news and everything only to find out she was a albino black African American Girl SMH this world is very racist then they wonder why black kids really don’t like making friends with White kids because of what their ancestors did to theirs and for what the ones are going through with now
