@SRCJJ realistically what are the changes you think need to be made and can be made in quick secession? For me this issue goes about as deep as possible.
First off we have a gun issue, and police are always on edge because at any moment someone can pull out a gun and kill them. The way police are trained is another issue. Regardless of race they are trained to be on high alert at all times which keeps them on edge. My wife has an extended family member (hispanic) who was an officer who shot his own son and killed him because he set off the house alarm late one night. They are basically brain washed in their training and it changes the entire composition of their brain, dunno if you’ve ever met a cop or know one but they are fucking weirdos. There are a lot of instances of black cops killing ppl indiscriminately as well. Cops are a fraternity. The one solution I’ve heard that would definitely work is the outing of the known white supremacists within the police force that the FBI know about and have a list of, but even if that’s done the root of the problem will still exist.
Of course George Floyd was a completely different situation, clear excessive force was used when there was no need for it. However the police shootings usually come born out of fear. There are stereotypes that play in to the way police view minorities, and mostly black ppl. Imo the biggest systemic issue we have is the inequality in wages and living conditions the black community face. We are seeing it with COVID-19 as an example of this as well. Meanwhile billionaires get richer and richer. Bernie Sanders has been basically speaking out against all of these things for ages and actually has a real plan yet he was kicked to the curb for Hillary and now Biden who, let’s face it, has 48 years of service and has a less than stellar record going to bat for the black community, and the craziest aspect of this for me is that it was mainly black democratic voters in the south that made this happen. These establishment candidates are never going to make a real difference for the ppl of this country, its maddening to see it play out like this
