This is how many people police have killed so far in 2016
Celisa Calacal

Good read… Being a cop in America has to be a tough job. 27 homicides per day. Maybe its inadequate training. Maybe its racism. Maybe we could all stop and look at ourselves and figure out why we are killing each other at a high rate. Why are we putting cops in a predicament that makes them decide they need to fatally shoot someone. Are cops worried about getting shot? One can only wonder whats it like to see a fellow officer/friend get shot trying to do the right thing and to protect us. What runs through their head when someone is resisting arrest. What its like to wonder if you are going to come home to see your family. I imagine you do what you have to do to get through the day.

At the end of the day we need to fix our own communities and stop depending on police officers. It starts with us.
