The constant headlines of police brutality in America has been one of the most talked about issues in the past year alone. There have been numerous killings of unarmed people of color with little to no recourse. The lack of justice for these inhumane murders have caused riots and protests in big cities and small towns. Police brutality has always been around. The main reason that people are starting to see it first hand, and sometimes as it is happening, is due to a massive use of technology and cellphones. The justice system doesn’t give the same fair judgement or justice to people of color for their wrongdoings or for wrongdoing done to them vs their non colored counterparts. The lack of overview in the police department has led to coverups, mistrials and sometimes no penalties at all for murder. People of all races deserve to not be brutally murdered by police.
