Police Brutality 2020: Who would have thought that 2020 could get any worse. After months spent in one of the worst pandemics in our lifetime, we thought that things could only get better. Sadly, we were mistaken.
The brutal murder of George Floyd by police officers was the final straw that broke the camels back. Protestors in every state came out to join in solidarity against police brutality and police killings. This is not the first account of police brutality in 2020, or ever, and it won’t be the last.
Here are a few accounts of police brutality as reported by MSNBC.
Police Brutality 2020
These videos are disturbing and, quite frankly, disgusting. But the number of videos keep increasing as more and more people are being injured by the police – whether they are protestors or people out shopping.
Having all this video evidence of police brutality documented in one place helps counter the argument that these are just isolated incidents. Often, blame is attributed to a few bad apples but it’s starting to look like the whole tree is rotten, with only a few good apples left.
Hold Police Accountable
Current laws in the US allow police officers to literally get away with murder. Time and time again, we here stories of an innocent man or women being shot or suffocated to death, and yet nothing is done to change this.
We’ve become desensitized to the constant violence and abuse that we see by law enforcement, right until it happens to a friend of family member. Even then, your tears and shouts for justice fall on deaf ears. But perhaps this time, with constant pressure from protestors day-by-day, officials might make some serious changes to hold police accountable for killings and police brutality.
