Fuck these mother fuckers. A combat roll? Really? Put the joystick down, this isn’t a game. Stop being a power hungry racist prick. This isn’t COD. You have actually lost your mind.
So let me get this straight, the crime these kids are being arrested for is partying while black? These are teenagers enjoying a pool party and this mother fucker rolled like he was James Bond dodging bullets.Thank goodness the cameraman was white (I think) or else he would’ve been arrested too and this would’ve never made it online.
The police in this country are truly disturbing. I am not saying every police officer is corrupt but corruption exists and needs to be rooted out. They have a similar code of silence you would see among street gangs and the mob. It is very rare for an officer to turn on another officer. They keep their mouths shut and tend to repeat the same stale dialogue of waiting for all the details. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in innocence until proven guilty but it seems like a black civilian has an accelerated route to a guilty verdict.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Well this time the growing threat of injustice is in our law enforcement. We need the police. We do. A country without a working law enforcement is anarchy and dangerous. But we deserve better than this. We need a working justice department that actually protects and serves every community equally. Instead, the growing number of viral videos like this are just furthering the polarization.
Now, to the people who turn a blind eye to this and insist black on black crime is the real issue. For starters, you are aware that both police brutality as well as black on black crime can exist in the same universe right? They are both problems that need to be fixed. But tell me, how can people living in predominantly black neighborhoods feel safe enough to call officers and snitch on gang members if the officers have shown racist behaviors? It’s ludicrous. The only way you would report a gang is if you can have your safety guaranteed. Do these officers look like they care about the safety of the people they are supposed to be serving?
These reports need to stop. The police system needs to reconstruct so that trust can slowly rebuild because the direction the country is heading now is a dangerous road. This is not a call for revolution. It is certainly not a call for violence or the dismissal of the police force. But the current trajectory of violence needs to shift. The road to building trust is going to be a long one. But it is a road that needs to be taken before we wander down the dead end path of mutually assured destruction.
