Sadly, 14 year old Honestie Hodges has just died from Covid-19.
This would be the saddest of all covid death stories you will ever hear.
3 years ago Honestie’s name came to the fore when police in Grand Rapids, Michigan brutalized and handcuffed her on the doorsteps of her home. She screamed in terror as her mother fought for her. The video went viral and caused lots of uproar in the US at the time.
The Police later claimed it was mistaken identity. And despite the public anger at the time, no officer was fired for the pain and she was not compensated either.
The United State’s law enforcement and law both failed her. And now she’s gone, failed also by the government and healthcare system from a pandemic that should’ve been under control here a long time ago.
