It really upsets me when the topic is Police Brutality and someone says “Don’t be a criminal and you won’t be hurt by police.”
That is so not true. Police hurt a lot of people who are not criminals. There are many stories to be found.
I have had experiences with the police that still haunt me. I used to walk to the store all the time. I rarely do anymore, and the very few times that I do, I’m thinking every step of the way that a cop is going to pull up and harass me about whether my disabilities are real or if I’m just on drugs and giving him an attitude.
And even so, I still have faith in the system and I continue to believe that most cops handle situations properly. But there are still far too many times when cops do not handle the situation properly. It’s those times that I’m talking about.
