Their excuses are so typical, too. They either “feared for their lives” or mistook something else for a gun and whatever else they can come up with to be acquitted from murder, and it is the same for almost every case.
While our black men and women are losing their lives, policemen have not been losing their lives to gunfire or even close as they make it seem when trying to plead their cases. In fact, in comparison to the 100 lives that were taken in January of this year to gunfire from police, a whopping total of ZERO police officers have died from gunfire. This should speak volumes.
So many policemen cry that they fear for their lives, and yet, they are the ones that are still alive. Meanwhile, our black men who were unarmed and harmless are now six feet under. When do police officers get punished for being trigger happy? When will America collectively recognize police abuse and brutality for what it is rather than trying to excuse it?
It is horrifying, to say the least. If you visit www.killedbypolice.net, you will see that people are killed literally EVERY DAY by a police officer, and a great deal of them are black. This is alarming, but it seems like no one is alarmed but us.
