CAUTION: Some content may be offensive. Our hope is you’ll get mad enough to do something. The reason we post that disclaimer is for stories like this. Carolynn’s is not an easy story to watch. But it’s an important story that must be shared.

Carolynn is homeless living on the mean streets of Detroit. She claimed to be the mother of Malice Green. Malice Green died while in police custody after being arrested by Detroit police.

Carolynn says she’s been homeless by choice for over two years, but if you really listen, what she really mean is that life on the streets is better than being with her family.

Please don’t judge Carolynn. I cannot even imagine the hard life she has had. Homelessness is very complex, and much of the madness from homelessness comes from the socioeconomic crisis going on in America’s inner-cites like Detroit.

Through all the hardness what I heard from Carolynn was a woman screaming to be loved.
