This piece is not necessarily about Kimani, nor the shooting or riot in particular. It is about the tension between the urban "hoods" and the "powers that be", specfically the police: the distrust, the possible racial implications, and overall the "us vs. them" mentality from both sides.
To this day, the circumstances surrounding Kimani's death are hazy.
