'Kill them before they grow'? France's black justice minister slams US police killings

PARIS (AFP) - France's black Justice Minister Christiane Taubira on Tuesday waded into the conflict over racially charged killings in the United States, quoting Rastafarian reggae icon Bob Marley on Twitter to express her anger. "Kill them before they grow", the minister tweeted, citing Marley who sang the phrase in his 1973 hit song "I shot the sheriff". Taubira's tweet came as riots erupted in the suburb of Ferguson outside St Louis after a grand jury chose not to press charges against a white officer who shot dead black teen Michael Brown in what he said was self-defence. The grand jury decision further fuelled racial tensions in the United States after Cleveland police shot dead 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was waving around what turned out to be a toy gun on a playground.
