Actress Misty Upham’s Family Says Police Discrimination Played a Role in Her Death

“Unfortunately, it feels like 1950s racism in many ways. The family is concerned that Misty was considered just another Native person and treated as such. Even that is unacceptable. Native lives matter. It doesn’t matter what her skin color was,” Rector said. Meanwhile, police refute this accusation. Auburn Police Commander Steve Stocker told The Post, “We felt like we put effort into it; the family obviously doesn’t believe that the efforts were enough but we handled it as we felt was appropriate.”

That’s an honest answer. It just so happens what they felt was “appropriate” was to do the minimum in regards to Native lives. Pigs.
