# Justice For Breonna Taylor

Recommended Posts

I’m sure this is going to turn racial but I am going to go on the standard of “When are they going to learn?” Against the police this time.

why was it necessary to kneel on this guy’s neck?  His crime was forgery.  Even if it escalated, once you have him pinned, why not kneel on his back or upper torso instead of the neck?  This just looks bad for cops in general.

Badges & guns don’t need to be on some folks; Authority either; it goes to their head.

I don't think its the "new norm."  It is excessive force.  It is being brought to the public more.  If used properly, it will lead to better training.  If used the way it has been, all we will hear is "White cop kills black man."  Which will lead to riots, police defiance, and more division.  It should be sold as "unnecessary, violent, and wrong."  The guy should be fired, and the remaining police force should be retrained.

Think of how many arrests are made in a day across the country.  We hear about 1 a month ending in an improper death.  That's not bad percentage-wise, but the fact that techniques like this policeman used are deemed appropriate to make an arrest is not okay.  It needs to be rectified.

It shouldn't happen to anyone.  Even Rand Paul has stated that these no knock warrants should be illegal, because they place innocent people as well as the police in jeopardy.  It's time for them to end.

It's not the new norm.  This h as been done by cops since the beginning of time, but now we're seeing people are tired of it, and want the cops to be held accountable.  I used to think when I was growing up that cops were the good guys, but I've learned over the years that not all of them are.
