When you see the Police patrolling around your area, or you’re driving down the street and you see the police car, what types of feelings come over you? Do you become afraid,nervous,does anxiety fill your veins? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone.
A lot of us feel that if we make one wrong move, we will be faced by the barrel of a gun. I am not, by any means,putting all Policemen in to the Bad Cop category, but we must admit, there are some.
There are the one’s who think that their badge says it all. That they can belittle you,speak to you in any way shape or form and also put their hands on you, but you can’t rebuttal..
How can we repair our relationship with the ones that took the oath to Serve and Protect? How can our trust in them be repaired? I think, will a more extensive background check, more in-depth training courses, with Psychology classes included would help a great deal;So, instead of pulling a trigger,words can be used,(from a distance of course). There should be rubber bullets used to bring the noncooperative suspect down, without causing death.
You hear a lot of the policemen state they felt threatened..Really, against a young teenage boy? Threatened? Hmm,maybe there is a different definition for the word threatened.. I shall do a little research to find out…(yes,I’m being facetious).
I am not making this about race,at least trying not too, but it’s a known fact, several of our african american men have been killed by either white men or white officers. I hear a lot of people say, well if you resist arrest, you have to face the consequences. So, instead of standing up for your rights as a citizen, someone who didn’t do any unlawful acts, but being harassed by the police, you are suppose to just sit there and let them place you in handcuffs or search your person or talk to you in a disrespectful manner!!! BE FOR REAL!!!
I want to make this for all races, for anyone that has been harassed by the police.It’s time that things change..Enough is Enough!!! We need to come together and Make some type of Change. Stop pointing the finger at one person or one race.We are all in this together! It affects us all..
