Five NFL players meet travel to Capitol Hill to discuss community-police relations (Shutdown Corner)

African-Americans killed unjustifiably at the hands of police officers have made headlines nationwide, with the families of those killed receiving little, if any, justice. Five NFL players are in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, spending their off day trying to open conversation with the country’s decision-makers: Detroit Lions receiver Anquan Boldin and teammate Glover Quin, Cleveland Browns Josh McCown and Andrew Hawkins, and Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins. It was Boldin who organized the trip, after losing a cousin at the hands of a plainclothes police officer in Florida last year.
