The protests against police brutality and murder of young black individuals have been a staple on the streets of America; generations of Blacks have been destroyed by a system put in place to prevent their upward mobility. Police officers are the tools used by the system to carry out the wishes of the Whites in control.
Since the march by Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1960’s to the protests for George Floyd’s murder in 2020, the behavior of police officers has not changed an iota.
Case in point, just as the trial of Derek Chauvin, Floyd’s killer, is ongoing, another officer Kim Potter, in the same state, gunned down another Black man, Daunte Wright. A few days later, in the state of Illinois, a police officer killed a 13-year boy Adam Toledo who was apparently unarmed; he had both hands up when the officer shot him.
