I am really disturbed by the fact that our police system was founded in controlling slaves... it was FOUNDED on that. FOUNDED. When we look at what is happening in our country currently, we must not over look the history of this system. I know that there are many awesome cops out there who do their job well. This isn't cop bashing, but I don't know how we can get past the histpry of an organization without intentional reform. When roots run deep within a system, we cannot simply say, let try a different way... we must say, we must completely start over... this cannot be righted. We must start from a new foundation which is founded in equality for all regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, SES, sexuality, etc. The fact that our law and order system isn't bent toward justice is so distrubing... shouldn't that be the ultimate point? To provide safety and justice to all it claims to "protect." Very eye opening.
