Police Brutality

The police shouldn't be a gang of control freaks with guns who can do whatever they want without repercussions

Dear Future President, my name is Steven Kahler and I am a Sophomore at Berkeley High school in California. My issue is police brutality. This issue is concerning to me because I've seen to many people be harassed or killed by the police for no good reason other than the cop didn't like them or something that they were doing. Myself and friends of mine have had cops harass us or threaten us because they know that they can get away with it. It's also scary to think that there are people who have power and authority over everyone else just because they have a badge and a gun. The police can do almost anything they want without getting in trouble for it. I personally don't think there should be any cops to begin with because its messed up to tell someone they can't live their life the way they want to just because the boys in blue don't like it. Sincerely, Steven Kahler
