Police have been getting too bad a rap lately.

I think you may have not thought through this post. The recent events are not about the police officers having a bad reputation and no one is arguing that we should not have police. The police are allowed to take black lives with out proper evidence and also without any consequences. By creating this post you distracting from the real issue. You’re saying, “Well my brother is a good cop, so we should all take a moment to to appreciate cops”. The thing is though, we don’t all have the privilege to appreciate cops. If you are black in this country, then you have good reasons to be suspicious of the very people that white people are taught to innately trust. There are many good cops, but that’s not what needs to be talked about. We need to talk about black lives mattering because they are treated as if they don’t.
