It seems police need further training reminders that they're supposed to arrest & apprehend suspects, take them to jail to await trial and all that vs. execute them on sight for no reason.

Obviously it doesn't look good (Again.) for American polices' racial biases when the victim happens to be a black man.

All these cops think they're Stallone's character in Judge Dredd or something? :?

This has been going on for decades, and even with George Floyd's murder, we've only been paying lip service to the issue.

People can't even decide whether to reform or defund law enforcement (I am pro-reform), and our response has been superficial at best. Meanwhile, the Derek Chauvin wannabes keep up their brutality.

Fix the law enforcement issue, create opportunities for BIPOC, and fight discrimination tooth and nail. We can worry about statues and sports teams later.

How many unarmed black men do you think the US cops kill per year?
