Police brutality is going on all over the world and so is racism. Police are doing things to African Americans that is racist and a violation of their rights. It is described as racist as it seems to be happening to more and more African Americans around the world compared to other people. This article states that “police show up in full riot gear to what is a peaceful sit-in of forty or so people, officers beat protesters who are already handcuffed and use tear gas on demonstrators who are, in the words of a District Court judge, “not engaged in violence or criminal activity” (Agbabiaka, 2015, pg.33). In this sentence it is telling us that while protestors are protesting, they are being treated badly and their rights to protest are being taken. If protestors aren’t engaged in violence or criminal activities, why are they being handcuffed and having tear gas used on them? The district court has even said some of the protestor are being attacked when its nonviolent and non-criminal activity. This is again police brutality. Police are showing the world forms of police brutality on live tv when they come to protest prepaid to disperse the crowds using unnecessary force especially when it’s a peaceful protest. Police are taken away the rights of the people to gather and protest peacefully and exercise their freedom of speech. This has to stop.
POLICE BRUTALITY 3 Chama, B. (2019). The Black Lives Matter movement, crime and police brutality: Comparative study of New York Post and New York Daily News. European Journal of American Culture, 38(3), 201–216. This source is using the article to explaining discrimination and racism of African American people by comparing to news sources and their opinions. This source says like other sources that the black lives movement is “a rallying cry for blacks to have equal justice and overcome the unfair institutional racism that continues to exist at the hands of the law enforcement agencies in their interactions with African Americans”(Chama, 2019, pg.203). The Black live matters exposes cases of unfair detention and even imprisonment giving examples of incarceration, pointing out to the over one million African Americans locked in United States prisons, often for minor non-violent offences and that African Americans continue to bear a relentless assault by the state (Chama, 2019, pg.204). The comparison this article adds is between New York Post and New York
