Well, it would not be this time. The jury that convicted police officer Amber Guyger looked more like the community, largely made up of women and people of color.
I got a Facebook message that said a kid took a picture of a black man that was being pulled by an officer on a horse with a leash.
Life is simple and straightforward as the retired police officer said. The doctor should take some advice from the officer and re-calibrate.
The arrest of this black man simply for existing at his own home is not solely the Trump Effect but gets a certain legitimacy from it.
Police killed Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Eric Garner, Walter Scott, and many others with video cameras running, and it did not matter.
This nurse’s arrest proves that along with other incidents after incidents, we are not far from a being a police state.
This police officer verbalized a the virtual truth about cops and black people in an attempt to get a woman he stopped to comply.
Watch/Listen to this frank and productive conversation with a police officer about the killing of black men and people of color and much more.
When a cop does something unexpected most of the times it isn’t something like this. More of these acts need to be exposed especially now.
It is a shame that I did not know what I had done for this police officer to stop me but had a palpable fear that actually surprised me.
