By Jamilah King Feb 09, 2015

It’s been three weeks since 17-year-old Jessica "Jessie" Hernandez was killed by Denver police officers, and over the weekend her family and friends finally got the chance to say goodbye. Hernandez was laid to rest as questions continue to swirl around her death, which was the latest in a long and deadly list of fatal encounters between Denver’s residents and its police force.

"I’ve been crying the whole ride over here — I just don’t think I’m quite ready to look at her," Quarron Floyd said outside the chapel where Hernandez’s body laid on Saturday morning. The Denver Postreported that a "massive crowd" gathered to pay their respects to the teen.
