Mr. President, There’s Nothing Funny About Promoting Police Brutality

    Gotta tell ya, being white is pretty great. I went into the police station with 6 phones and said I’m dealing drugs and I wasn’t arrested. I wasn’t dealing drugs either, but, yano, I said that in front of them.

    I’m not sure police violence will end. It seems the job beckons to the sort to abuse power, just like any position of power. We’ve seen that video evidence apparently doesn’t matter any more, and on more than one account (Philando, more recently police planting drugs). It’s a shitty situation.

    I’d like to know if you personally have any experience, good or bad, with the police. I haven’t run into any over bearing officers, but I’ve also never been black.

    Your article is great. Thanks for writing

      Both my Mother and Father had experience with police. There have been several times when the police got a tad bit aggressive, but not to the point where we felt threatened for our lives. But that was several years ago. Now we might feel threatened, with all these people having there lives taken in the most peculiar (and unnecessary) situations. It’s becoming too much, and the President joking about it is not helping.
