The truth about Rapid City, S.D.



In responce to an interview on 5-14-10 with James Swan, an activist in Rapid City, SD, to discuss the killing of Christopher Capps (May 2), unarmed, by a police officer. He was shot 5 times at a 6 foot range. . Here are a couple of articles from Censored News.

It has been suggested that perhaps James Swan might have been over exagerating the Rapid City Racist enviorment that which American Indians have had to endure for over a century and that which still continues today.
