The Challenges Of Police Brutality Against African Americans
What has the movement changed towards the violence? Shouldn’t all lives matter when it comes to police brutality? Since the movement is bigger than any group, individuals chant things that don’t follow the message of the Black Lives Matter network. Chants such as “Pigs in a blanket; fry them like bacon”. Actions such as that can label this movement as a hate group towards police. Police are protecting people by risking their lives in order to keep society safe from harm. They protest a white police officer that shoots a black man. But they don’t protest any of the numerous black on black shootings. A black police officer gets assaulted or shot and there are no protests. This gives people in society unclear difference in these deaths if all black lives matter. While the trials of these crimes air, we are aware of what had happened before they murdered occurred. The movement rapidly jumps to conclusion if the officer was provoked to shot the unarmed male. When the verdict is reached, the movement becomes outraged and believes violence will solve the problem. Destroying businesses, houses, and vehicles doesn’t solve anything. The lives that have been lost deserve to be seen as a message instead of a mockery. They don’t want people to damage property or threaten other; they want to prevent other deaths from occurring.
