Police Violence

Cops should not kill people holding a weapon.

Dear Future President,

When you become president i hope you look at problems happening in the U.S. One of the problems you should fix is cop's killing people with a weapon. This is affecting families. It affects people with children.

Police officers have killed at least 28 people holding a bb gun or pellet gun. Those guns look different than real guns. Bb guns and pellet guns can’t kill anyone. People like to play with them especially kids.

A cop killed a thirteen year old holding a plastic toy gun. The plastic toy gun looked like an AK-47 rifle. The thirteen year wasn’t doing anything to the cop. He was just playing with his plastic gun.

Hopefully you try fixing this problem. Cops should make sure if they're fake guns or real guns. You should make a rule like if a cop kills someone with a fake gun they should get fired and be in jail at least for a month.
