Do you guys believe police brutality is getting worse? The more things I see, I’m afraid to travel the U.S 😶😥?

Honestly me being black there may be a chance I may get profiled. Regardless of my personality and stature. Honestly it scares me sometimes 😥.

Do you guys believe police brutality is getting worse?

  • Unpopular opinion: I believe that most whites are racists (especially if they're from America, UK, Australia, Northern Europe-Germany, Sweden, France). They're imperialists and fascists that judge people by their skin's melanin. If you're a non-white person in these countries, you're considered inferior to them and can be charged with anything...
    The only whites that aren't racists are from Southern European/Mediterranean countries, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Lebanon, or Latin American countries and Argentina The Russians are kind too

  • Police brutality is definitely getting worse.
    Police are increasingly trained to be more paranoid and aggressive.
    "Roid rage" is prevalent.
    Police departments encourage and defend bad behavior.
    Police unions consistently defend even the worst behavior.
    Police act with impunity, knowing that there is a minuscule chance that they will be held accountable for outright unjustifiable brutality and even murder.

      I didn't mean to imply that all cops are bad. In fact, I think the majority are good people. The majority of cops I have interacted with were very professional and polite. Just doing their jobs.

      There is a problem, though, in that the vast majority of police remain silently complicit when they witness bad behavior by their fellow cops. That is because they fear reprisal from fellow cops and from the department leaders. Their lives can even be endangered.

      Guess it will never end and the division will continue 🤦🏾‍♂️

  • 99.98% of the time, you will be treated the same way you treat the officers. If you are hit with the lights behind you, and you immediately signal, pull off the road, turn off the car, roll down the windows, and keep your hands on the wheel, you are showing respect for the dangers of their job, and you will be shown respect in return.

    If you make them follow you for several miles, pull over with no signal and leave no room for them behind you, leave your windows up and car running and your radio blasting, then you will get some attitude, and if you show more attitude in return, things can get ugly.

    The media here will never tell you the officer's side of the story because it doesn't fit their narrative, but lots of people have really bad attitudes and behave in very uncooperative and even threatening ways, and then wonder why they are roughed up. The times when someone gets roughed up for no reason are rare enough to get noticed and make the news, which is a handful of times a year nationwide.

    • 10 d ago

      Right - you named a single person because that case was so far outside of the norm that it made the national media. I'm not in any way justifying it or anything like that, but that kind of thing is actually very, very rare. Essentially, the officer was overly fearful and over-escalated the situation, and in my opinion should have gotten some prison time. But this was one incident, and American police make about 45 million contacts with citizens every year.

      How is that very rare there are so many others that don’t make the headline much less police using excessive force on people of color.

      I agree it's all about your look. If you aren't doing anything illegal, don't try to hide anything when they pull you over, or try to run you'll be fine. In every story of police brutality you'll read, they're either doing something illegal, hiding something or running away, or being belligerent to the cops. If you respect cops, they'll respect you

    More whites are killed by cops than blacks

    More blacks are killed by other blacks

    More whites killed by other whites

    Racial tension got way worse after Obama was in office.

    My question is why cam we not just be Americans.

    Like when they say on the news a black man was so and so or a black woman so an so why not just say a man or woman, they know ears perk up when they say black. It draws a line in the sand saying there is a difference. Now apply that to hollywood.

    I don't know there is equal bullshit on both sides.

    Just so people know im not white and I'm not black I'm mixed 8% Nigerian and the rest is french, English etc. Black and white. Probably arab Idfk bit I grew up in the south never believing anyone was less entitled to his constitutional rights than anyone else.

      The reason why is is because of all the divisiveness and if your not white in this country you will be profiled one way or another. Yes I’m aware whites are killed by cops. Yes white on white crime do exist. However I’m speaking in a scenario that that’s are actually cops that target and profile blacks and some get killed even if they comply. There can’t be unity because all of the racism that was birthed into the country still is poisoning the definition of being American.

      That may be true but if they look like a “thug” or look like a”threat” which more than likely they will get profiled and it can happen. It depends on the area yes I think these things happen more in the more less diverse areas.

  • Of course you'll get profiled. Because a large part of the criminality is done by black people.
    If you want to be efficient in fighting crimes, you're going to care more about those who are more likely to be criminals. But if you did nothing wrong, you'll get away with it.
    As for police "brutality", most of the time you realize it's just a single occurrence but since medias are talking about it, people think it happens all the time and that all the cops are spending their days beating people.
    Not only that, but today, "brutality" is used for everything, and most of the time it describes something that was necessary to put a criminal down.
