Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People
I had to reblog this again because it just reduced me to tears.
As most of you know, I am an attorney. And I am an attorney licensed in Minnesota. This is the state where I took an oath last year to uphold state and federal laws and to protect the rights of the citizens.
It PAINS me to see this. To see these unjust cops who I for all intents & purposes, have to stand along side. When they are abusing EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of POWER. Minneapolis/St. Paul have BEEN a war zone. I’m ashamed. I’m embarrassed.
Not all officers are bad. Please don’t let that be the take away. Butpolice brutality is VERY FUCKING REAL.
Watch this. If this doesn’t move you, if this doesn’t make you cry out in agony and want to change the world, I don’t know what will.
[trigger warning]ATTN: Every white kid talking about ratchets, popin’ molly and whatever else you got off a shitty rap song. The struggle is real….
Man that’s just disgusting.
If police cruisers have cameras on them, then the officer should as well. Though they’d probably manipulate those to benefit them as well.
Even I fear the sight of an officer, I’ve never even had as much as a ticket, it’s just the idea of being a victim of someone having a bad day wanting to take out their aggression on someone.
