Police Brutality

Police Brutality

Dear next president,

Police brutality is a big problem that hasn’t been solved. But, it needs to be. Police brutality should not be allowed or accepted and it cannot continue the way it has.

From 1877 to 1924 police were brutally beating and striking laborers. Then came Prohibition, civil rights movement, Vietnam war , and Nixon administration which all had large scales of brutality. So throughout our country's past, there has been no solution to this conflict.

These Days, children and adults are held to impossible standards to avoid police brutality. As i recall from school, cops are there to protect the citizen, not cause them harm. People do not take the time to see how bad it really is. The fact that it is happening at all is terrible, let alone how often.

Not all police officers are bad obviously; but, police brutality is a very large concern in the U.S . For every 1,000 people killed by police, only one officer is convicted. So imagine the worst serial killer you can, Ted Bundy, Ed Gein, The Green River Killer, Jack the Ripper, all of the infamous killers are considered to be the worst of the worst because of how many people they killed and how they killed them, well i can guarantee none of them killed 1000 people. We need to change this, but we must do it as a nation.
