There have been so many wrongful killings that we have all witnessed. It seems that every day there is a new video showing a police officer killing a black person with little reason during a routine traffic stop. These are sad for anyone to witness. But if you are a black person, these videos are terrifying. How would you feel if you knew that everytime you got behind the wheel, you might get pulled over and summarily executed?
Recently there was an article that gave me a little hope. It talked about a new program that has helped the Salt Lake City Police not kill anyone since 2015. This is because they invested in something called DE-ESCALATION TACTICS. It is a plan that needs to be implemented in every police department in the USA. Everywhere this is put into place, the senseless shootings come to an abrupt end. We must find ways to help make this happen everywhere.
