In 2017, police killed 1,129 people, and out of those 1,129 people who were killed, 27% were Black. in 2017 on average 631 officers were responding to non-violent offenses or when no crime had been reported at all. 87 people killed had been stopped for a traffic violation. A simple traffic violation, no reason to escalate the situation yet 87 human being lost their lives because many police choose to escalate the situation INSTEAD of de-escalating it like they’re supposed to be trained to do. Most of the unarmed individuals that were killed happened to be people of color, 48 of them were black, and that’s only of the reported instances, that’s also not counting the instances where the police were responsible for the death of an individual but it got covered up. In 2017 there were ONLY 14 days when no one was killed by a cop. How insane is that? out of 365 days there were ONLY 14 days that a human being wasn’t killed at the hands of an officer of the law.
58 hours, that’s the amount of hours police spend training with fire arms, that is 7X longer than they dedicate to de-escalation training. WHY? Shouldn’t they be PROTECTING us? Isn’t that what they are paid to do? Wouldn’t de-escalation be the more efficient and beneficial route? well, NOT IF YOU’RE A RACIST PIG.
Now, I’m not saying that all cops are like this because they aren’t all racist pieces of shit, but a good portion of them are. BUT, how can you tell? Maybe the racist cops should wear a special symbols so we can tell. They’re killing off the race they don’t like, sounds a bit familiar does it? Reminds me of 1933 to 1945, if you don’t know the time period and it’s significance just look it up real quick and you’ll see why I say that.
I’m tired of seeing my fellow human beings being treated like this, tired of them losing their lives, tired of seeing them be harassed JUST BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN. SO if I’m tired of it, can you IMAGINE how they feel? They get stopped ALL THE TIME for literally nothing other than because they are of color. Can you imagine being harassed for simple walking? or eating? or even just walking into YOUR OWN HOME and ending up shot dead for NO good reason.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
We are ALL human beings, why can’t we ALL be treated the same? And WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT LETTING IT HAPPEN??????
I’ll never understand this and I’ll never stop fighting for what is right, equality for EVERY single human being, no matter the race, sexuality, or religion. We are ALL human beings and we NEED to stand up for our fellow beings, period.
Until next time,
