Police in the USA – level 1

Police in the USA – level 1

11-07-2016 07:00

This news is from the USA. Police kill two black men. The men die in two places. One dies in Minnesota. The other one dies in Louisiana. The killings start a debate. Some people protest. They protest against police brutality and racism.

One protest is in Dallas. An incident happens during the protest. A man is very mad at police. He is a sniper. He kills 5 policemen. He wounds 6 more.

Difficult words: police brutality (when the police are brutal – dangerous and violent), sniper (a man with a gun that can shoot from very far away), wound (injure, do something bad to the body).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
