Police violence is even worse…

 

I know we have mostly good police officers in our area, but people everywhere are not so lucky.

Depressing but something we need to acknowledge is the fact that police shoot a huge number of people and most of the time it’s not justifiable, yet they almost never are held accountable.

In a report from the online magazine The Establishment, “Police shoot a lot more people than previously known” by Kali Holloway, the details of this, and the sources, are laid out.

This report shows the true extent of racism and violence at the heart of this country. Even more disturbing is the fact that the current national administration is backing down on efforts to improve things, and continuing to allow the lack of a comprehensive reporting system.

It’s a pretty long and not-so-fun read, but it’s something Americans must come to terms with if we are to be a rational, moral society.
