Nothing can be done because not enough people in the city want change.
All of this shit starts at home. Until they want it to change, there is nothing you can do.
Still, the police should be allowed to do their jobs again. Right now, they can’t.
The dividing of the country is coming from both sides but it’s driven by the media more than anything else.
I agree that a majority of police have drawn a short stick. It's hard to do a job where you risk your life and have to constantly be on your toes if you want to get home to see your kids in the morning. That's going to make doing your job, and not going over the top out of fear much harder. But at the same time, I've known plenty of cops that were exactly the racist assholes you see get portrayed by the media. It's not like they are being made up. They really are that way. Just like you want the masses to not overreact to every cop and start slinging death threats, cause they might be one of the good ones, they've got to remember that plenty of these people are good people too and they might not have to start off at defcon 1 every time.
I have a hard time, I have friends that are cops, and good people, and I want them to come home safe, even if they have to be a dick to not put themselves too much at risk, but I'm also not hoping they go out and beat a stupid kid into the ground because he's being an asshole and trying to get a rise out of them. It's a horrible situation when both sides are scared to death and both have good reason to be.
But people just bitching about it isn't helping things. When people have answers about what they can do, versus just complaining about it they should be allowed to get as loud as they want, but until then we just have to combating views that aren't going to see middle ground anytime soon.
Are there people out there targeting cops and killing people because they are bad people? Yes. Are there cops out there abusing their power and killing people at the drop of a dime because they have personal biases? Yes. Now how do we fix those?
