Transcript of POLICE BRUTALITY
We all perceive police officers as being our nation's heroes, but the truth is, they are our nation's villains. Those who were hired to protect us from danger are now doing the exact opposite. "Rape, murder, and violate" should be their new motto. Police brutality is a matter in which we as a society should view as an issue that has been evoling for many years. It's imperative that we fight against them now before they all our nation's heroes turn into our nation's know villains.
Police brutality dates back to 1893. The term was first used in a newspaper when the publisher described a police officer beating a man. Police brutality is the use of excessive force by police when dealing with civilians. Large-scale incidents of brutality were associated back to labor strikes, such as the Great Railroad Strike of 1877, the Pullman Strike of 1894, the Lawrence textile strike of 1912, the Ludlow massacre of 1914, the Steel strike of 1919, and the Hanapepe massacre of 1924. Police brutality has been an unstoppable force for a while now and still is to this day. Not only is it an issue in our society today, it's growing and spreading at an alarming rate.
A corrupt San Antonio police officer Jackie Len Neal was charged with rape of a 19 year old girl during a traffic stop. The girl whose name remains undisclosed was driving to her friends house and notices a SUV patrol car following her. Neal stops her and accuses her of driving a stolen car. After being asked a series of nonsensical questions, she asks if she was free to go. Ignoring her question, Neal begins to grope her sexually. He then drags her out of her car and throws her into his patrol car. He put her in handcuffs and begins to rape her. He threatens her by saying she knew where she lived, and if she said anything, he'd go back for her. 20 hours later, she calls the police and Neal was then arrested for sexual assault.
The shooting of Michael Brown is a prime example of police corruption. According to an eye witness, Officer Wilson stopped Michael Brown and his friend for no apparent reason. Wilson begins asking them questions expecting answers, but to no avail. After receiving no cooperation from the two, Wilson get's enraged and a fight ensues. Suddenly, a shot went off and Brown flees the scene. Wilson asks him to stop and fires at him immediately after Brown turns around and walks toward him. Wilson shoots Brown a total of three times, and their Brown laid lifelessly.
On September 21, 2014, a man by the name of Dennis Daley was arrested in an unimaginable manner. After a night of heavy drinking, Dennis and his wife had a huge argument. Dennis stormed out of his house and drove off in his car. His wife called the police and they stopped him from going any further. The Two Lee County deputies pulled him out of his car and repeatedly punched, kicked, and tazed the drunk, defenseless man. He woke up in the back of a police car with a smashed face, broken bones and severe cuts and gashes.
Police are our fri
Truthfully, not all police officers are corrupt. There are a few out there that realize that just because they have a badge, doesn't mean their superior. But for those that abuse their power, we must stand up against them. We as people have power and rights as well. These officers shouldn't be walking around all high and mighty if they are the ones abusing their given power and hurting us. Our world today is in reverse. Our protectors are actually putting us in danger. The so called "villains" are actually our nation's heroes. For some reason, we are all blind to the fact that our government can't be trusted anymore. To put an end to police b
Rodney king was driving on the freeway with his two friends and was caught speeding by highway patrol. Not wanting his probation to be revoked, he sped off in an attempt to lose the police. Rodney reached speeds of up to 115 mph. Finally, after thirty minutes, Rodney was caught. This is what happened.
People of color in the past have gone through a lot. Many believe that segregation, racism, and discrimination are all things of the past, now when in fact, it's still alive and well rounded throughout our country. It has even spread to our own law enforcement. Many cases would be the killing of Ezell Ford, who had a mental disability, Marvin Booker, Michael Brown, Eric Garner and many more. Not only do police abuse their power, they are also racist and target the majoriity of the time innocent blacks and hispanics. The war against the police still continues. Every week, another state requires its officers to document their every interaction with citizens on the basis of race and ethnicity, on the assumption that cops, not criminals or terrorists, are the country’s main problem. It's like the world is going in reverse.
