Police Issues

Dear Mr/Madam President, Have you ever felt like something was missing? As if you lost a piece of chocolate without knowing? Well there is something missing, and that is police issues that have been passing by. I’m sure you probably weren’t aware of all the black lives getting beaten up by the police officers. It’s like going back in time where the black and white didn’t get along. Have you ever seen a child complain to their mother, and the mother tells them not now? Well this is exactly what the police officers do to the adults who have an emergency. The officer brushes them away and goes back to talking to the other officers. Mister or Madam President you must create better policing policies, because Black Lives Matter. Did you know that some of the black race was beaten for no reason by the police? Reason is that the police officers are torturing the black people.Do the police officers know what they are doing? We can all say that yes these officers are doing their job, but why would they beat up the black people when they did nothing wrong. These people shouldn’t get hurt. Police officers need to go gentle on this one or someone else is going to get hurt.(Washington Post.) This needs to change! We cannot have anymore people get hurt by the police. We understand back in time the black and white people didn’t get along, but you can’t just beat someone up. Why not make a compromise that way the police officers are doing their job and these people don’t get hurt. People may think differently about police officers, and yes there could be some nice officers. Most police officers may even think they have the power to do what they want. If we had a law created to change the ways the police work then these citizens would feel at peace. We need you to support this change or our society will fall apart. Back in time the white people made fun of the color of black people. Another reason is that the police officers are going against the black people. The officer would pick on them, hurt them, and laugh at them. Doesn’t anyone understand that a black person is the same as everyone else? An officer probably thinks it’s funny to maybe even kill a black person. These lives shouldn’t be made fun of even though the outer shell is a different color. Please change this way of living.(foreign policy) Congratulations new President! We are glad you became the new leader of our citizens, so now here is a reminder to remember. Please help fix our policing issues it would make everyone feel more peaceful and important. Maybe adding in some more rules to policing it would make our citizens feel safe and not terrified. Have a wonderful few years as being our new President! Sincerely, Isabel R. Work Cited "America's Police Problem Isn't Just About Police."
