A law enforcement that for nearly generations has overpowered its own government; abused its powers, and hid behind the powerful unions that make police forces operate the way they do today.
Police forces have become the new underworld of modern day. They’ve become the very crevice of the nightmarish horror film you shouldn’t of watched that one Friday night — and it has become more clear with each and every body cam video that appears online.
America is under attack from the inside.
America will argue that its enemies and foreign powers are out to get it, and while that may be true at times, the United States has proven that it is by far its own worst enemy.
When America falls and it will it will be nobody’s fault except its own. The fault of a country built on the backs of former slaves and their descendants; police brutality and over patrol, dark money, and powerful people pushing not so democratic agendas.
Some Americans fear Black and Brown people when those Americans should be fearing themselves. The emboldening of a law enforcement that has long been out of control has only led to a rise in police violence.
Violence that often goes undetected and unknown for periods of time unless police forces are forced to release the footage.
And they have many times but now Americans should be asking themselves how many are there they don’t know about?
Take this one for example. Outside of the killings of Black people (and these days it seems like every other Thursday a state sponsored murder is surfacing), this one strikes a terrifying cord.
A 73-year-old woman was violently arrested last year and it is only now making headlines. The arrest of the dementia suffering woman is catching headlines because police knowingly and violently broke her arm; assaulted her, and then made sure it was recorded.
The problem? Apart from the obvious they’ve now been captured on video laughing about it and high fiving each other.
These people are animals. The fine line between good cop and bad cop is becoming increasingly hard to understand because it is getting harder to determine who is the good cop.
