The unnecessary, violent death of George Floyd has again highlighted the need for police reform in this country. No more black mothers should have to grieve the loss of their child's life for no reason. Being black should not be a death sentence.
We need to implement procedures that emphasize empathy, mental health, & de-escalation for the men & women in our police force. The officers involved in the murder of George Floyd need to be fired & brought up on criminal charges.
The police force needs to be trained & educated in anti- racism measures & a deep respect for all humanity. Our police force needs to protect all lives, not just the lives of white people.
