1. Do you accept that White people are killed by police each year?
2. Do you accept that in a perfectly fair society, some Black people will be killed by police each year (because that is how police work)?
3. What do you think a rational solution is to the problem.
My son (who is person of color if that matters) is a police officer. He straps on a gun every day, and steps out into a tough job. He is trained that sometimes he may need to shoot people... that is part of the job. I imagine that when he draws his gun he may have to make a split second decision and that not shooting
someone may lead to the death of himself or innocent bystanders.
I believe that the police are necessary and that sometimes the use of deadly force is necessary. It doesn't make sense to give the police a gun and then tell them there may be life-ruining consequences for using it against a politically sensitive suspect. You can't ask police to consider political ramifications of their choices during an emergent life or death situation.
The police need great training. The police also need security that if they follow the guidelines and their training they will be supported by the community (even in the use of deadly force).
This doesn't take away from the need to have Black Lives Matters or to address what is clearly systemic racism in our society.
I fail to see how the outrage helps come up with real solutions.
