Today we are faced with the brutal facts that we suffer still from injustices that have been going on for decades.
- The media is swamped with coverage of police shootings, and beatings in our streets, and neighbourhoods, thanks to technology, and the quick thinking of citizens.This provides a platform to expose the brutality of the very ones the citizens employ to “serve, and protect” those that are on the receiving end of the very opposite action.
- But today we’re not only facing a crisis in the streets. Recently a platform for the men and women in prison and the jails across the country have been raised. These men and women have been victims of the same abuse as we see in our streets. The only difference in the two is one has the publicity exposure and the other is done behind the cloak of closed doors.
- All officers in the United States no matter if they’re beat officers in the police department or correctional officers take an oath before being released to carry out their duties. It states “On my honor, I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always uphold the Constitution, my community, and the agency I serve.”
So with that said this article is being published to make one point . There is no difference in the street police brutality and police brutality behind closed doors. An injustice is an injustice.
