1 week, 1 day ago by joannamg@eeanderson Cops choose their occupation. People of color do not choose the color of their skin. In my state’s capital alone, the police department collectively earned over $285K in overtime by being sent out to otherwise peaceful protests. They did nothing but escalate them to the point where guns were fired. Businesses were still raided. They did not protect the protestors, they only protected themselves. They did not prevent violence from occurring, they only sparked more. If you were approached by a cop, or multiple as it can commonly end up being, and were accused of doing something you did not do, or were not even told what you were being arrested for, you would feel the need to prove your innocence, wouldn’t you? The cops should NEVER be people who make the innocent fear for their lives. Furthermore, the police shouldn’t be killing guilty people. It’s obvious that this system is in need of reform and possibly a new system completely needs to be developed. I am not trying to be hateful by saying this and obviously there are cops who are not inherently “bad” and I myself have come into contact with cops who have properly done their jobs. But I am a young white woman. There have been too many deaths stemming from cops valuing their own lives more greatly than the lives of others and acting on racist notions. Trayvon Martin should not have been shot. Tamir Rice should have graduated this year. The cops that killed Breonna Taylor are murderers. Elijah McCain was an innocent man. George Floyd did not deserve to die. By using statements like “blue lives matter”, a movement that is trying to express that everyone matters is being undermined. Black lives matter=all lives mattering.
