Today there was a press meeting by some black NY representatives. Their subject was not about calming down and destruction wasn't going to solve anything. Instead it focused on another incident of supposed police incident involving a supposed peaceful Brooklyn woman protestor being shoved to the ground that was videoed and demands for the firing of the officer and as well as his superior who didn't try to help her. I didn't see it so can't comment but publicizing it in the midst of chaos isn't helping.
There is no doubt in my mind that there are some bad apples/attitudes in the police ranks. Many of them started out with all the right intentions but have become hardened with the experiences they've been confronted with.
