"The police officers unions need to say that their members are afraid to do their jobs and thus are likely to shoot first and hide from it later. At least the public will have a clearer idea of just who is riding, walking or biking about in uniform with a badge and gun--fearful and dangerous. A man standing in a back yard, a man standing in a vestibule, a man selling CDs, a man with an expired license, a boy playing in a park. a teen one week from going to college all seemed to have scared the education, intelligence, training, professionalism, and empathy out of the police officers who gunned down these Black boys and men.
