We all want to feel safe when we walk around the neighborhood; there is no question in that. We expect law enforcement to be there when something happens and to make sure that everyone remains safe. But how far should law enforcement go? Is aggressive force just a little too far? Can there be another way of taking action? Could something have been done differently?
It is these questions and more that are the first reactions when someone hears a story about someone losing their life to law enforcement.
What has been happening lately is that law enforcement has been going too far and as a result, aggressive force has unfortunately killed innocent civilians. These civilians are pleading that they cannot breathe and law enforcement is not responding to what they are saying. Instead, they are using too much force and people are dying because of it.
All family members, especially though, mothers, are affected by the loss of their love ones. They gather to seek justice and get answers as to why the officers performed the actions that they did.
Joining forces with others shows that every issue can be addressed because there are more voices. People become passionate about an issue when they see it reoccurring or it happens to themselves or a loved one. People try not to wait too long to get their voice heard because then they lose the power. Without them having the power, the issue either never gets resolved or goes on the back burner.
So the question becomes, has law enforcement gone too far in some cases?
