I agree there are more good officers than bad ones but the bad ones like the one that murdered Mr. Floyd should not have been allowed to remain on the force. He had many charges against him and should have been fired much earlier. The code that police officers follow that they stick up for each other and lie for each other must change. They are there to protect the people, all the people, not just those with the right color of skin. Again I must say I think the majority of the officers do the right thing but it has been proven not all of them do.
The two officers in New York who shoved the 75-year-old man to the ground where he lost consciousness and was then in the hospital for days was totally unnecessary. Then the entire group behind those two officers resigned in solidarity behind them. Did they really think that was the right thing to do to that elderly gentleman?
Police officers like that have to go. They are not fit to be on the force. The one who murdered Mr. Floyd had his knee on Mr. Floyd's neck for almost 9 minutes while he looked down at him and watched him die. He knew exactly what he was doing. Even after he lost consciousness he kept his knee on his neck just to make sure he was dead.
Have you ever heard of a policeman doing this to a white man? I don't believe I have. This is a very racist society we are living in and because our current president is racist things are now more out in the open. Also because of everyone having a camera on their phone, the police will no longer be able to get by with the things they have in the past no matter how much they lie and stick up for each other. The other three policemen that stood by and watched the murder have now been charged. They should have stopped it. A 17-year-old girl filmed that murder. If she hadn't those policemen would maybe have been able to cover it up. I pray a jury will convict these murderers. I repeat if you can't protect all the people,, resign your position.
