On Sunday July 24, two policemen beat Abdirahman Abdi to death. Nimao Ali recorded the incident. As she said "I had my six-year-old when I was recording and it broke my heart. I had to cover his eyes with one hand while I recorded, and I'm thinking, 'OK, what's going to happen to him when he grows up?' So it is a fear and it is something that needs to be addressed and it's something we need to speak out about."
