There is something that I don’t understand, and which I’m hoping someone can help me understand.
I know people (on facebook and in real life) who don’t seem to care about the police violence that has led to civil unrest. I have people that I call friends and even family who have not said a single word when it comes to the ongoing, well documented, and pervasive problem of police brutality. Even more confusing to me are the ones who not only remain silent about violence perpetrated by the police, but go as far as to post “back the blue” type messages this week.
So, in all seriousness I ask how you can consider me a friend if you don’t care about the fact that a police officer could almost certainly murder me and get away with it?
How can you claim to love my children if you choose not to take even 1 minute out of your day to oppose police violence that could one day claim their lives?
If you’re not only silent on police violence but are actively promoting the police now, what value do you place on my life and the lives of my children?
