I would first like to say that I do not believe in demonizing police. MANY of them are in the force for a noble reason, and do want to protect people and their rights. Unfortunately, a small percent of them give the whole group a bad reputation. Even more unfortunately, the ones who are in the force for the wrong reasons have shown excessive violence over the last few months, injuring countless protesters. SO HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE. This article is interesting to consider. It outlines why you should take legal action against cops who use excessive violence against peaceful protesters. We hold you to a higher standard because we have to trust you with more power. Live up to the standard of a REAL cop, and protect those you've sworn to protect.
