We must do more than cry and scream. We must do something to stop the war the police wage against US citizens. We are becoming an occupied nation in which the police don’t trust the citizens they serve. That lack of trust leads the police to murder innocent people.
In one sense, it doesn’t matter what the color, gender, etc, is of those who are murdered. On the other hand, it is clear that people of color, especially black males, are suspects at all times, while white people, especially older white males, get a pass. Even well-armed crazy white males. This has to stop NOW … TODAY.
Yet, I have no doubt that by the time you read this, another person will have been murdered by the police.
It’s time to disarm the cop on the beat. If a police officer travels alone, he cannot carry a gun. Wrap him head to toe in Kevlar and arm him to the teeth with non-lethal weapons. The only cops with guns will be those who operate as a group of 3 or more and have been very carefully vetted to have earned the right.
