Last month, I came across a petition with over 90K signatures calling the San Francisco Police Department to reopen the case of Jaxon Sales, a 20-year-old, queer Filipino man who died due to an overdose in the home of an older, affluent 41-year-old white man.

The Sales’ family believes that authorities overlooked many crucial details in their son’s case, the most glaring being another overdose just weeks before Sales’ death in the same white man’s apartment.As I read through the details, I was fuming with anger, tears forming in my eyes.

I felt despair, sadness and rage because I immediately recognized a pervasive ongoing tragedy: a young person of color found dead in the arms of an older white john and the authorities don’t care.
