FROM THE INTRODUCTION
Why are Black males dying specifically at the hands of law enforcement agents for no apparent reasons? What needs to be done to abolish these nonsensical deaths? In this Special Double Issue, the Guest Editors provide a forum for critical discussion relative to theory that helps to explain what is occurring and why, give opportunity for analysis of the implications of these shootings at the micro-, mezzo-, and macro-societal levels and, perhaps most importantly, provide solution-based recommendations for rectifying this problem.
