Nothing has changed

The news is out: [In some ways, 2020 has appeared to mark a turning point in the United States’ long ongoing racial justice movement. This year’s Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police helped galvanize a nationwide reckoning on race that brought greater attention to other police killings, provoked millions of Americans to protest in their streets, and pushed the concept of defunding the police to the forefront.
But while those are substantial developments, the math of police killings remains essentially the same. As a recent post from Vox points out, the arrest rate for cops who kill people on-duty remains as low as ever—hovering between 1 percent and 2 percent.]

Police reform will not be legit until and unless qualified immunity, no-knock warrant, chokehold, police unions are outlawed and a national database for law enforcement prevents the rehire of cops who are caught. Please remember that a good cop is one who hasn’t been caught yet. Jackbooted neo-Nazi confederate skinhead terrorist supremacist Neanderthals… in other words, cops are an extension of the KKK and white supremacy.
