Laverne Cox is everything.
How is she the only person in that section of the audience who looks like they’re actually enjoying that legendary performance? I mean. Look at the three K’s being more concerned with looking good on camera than enjoying the moment. We need more Lavernes in this world.
The police, as an institution, have nothing to lose and everything to gain by pursuing and prosecuting officers who use excessive force in situations where it is unjustified.
I want to preface this post by saying it was inspired by my cousin, who has been posting literally nothing but pro-cop articles and op-eds as his Facebook statuses for the last two weeks or so.
My cousin is an NYPD officer in a district that has one of the highest rates of violent crime per capita in New York City. I do not doubt his intentions to serve and protect the citizens in his district. I know he has seen tragedies that I cannot imagine, and I do not write this as an attempt to invalidate his experience.
If we’re supposed to believe not all cops are bad, why are the good ones attempting to protect the corrupt and sadistic from the legal recourse they deserve? If these “bad” cops are such a minority, why isn’t every effort being made to remove them from their posts?
How can I trust an institution that has demonstrated a deliberate and consistent intent to shield those who brutalize — and even kill — the very people they are sworn to protect?
If you witness unjustice being done, and you stand idly by, you are an integral part of the problem. You invalidate whatever good you claim to do by allowing those who clearly abuse their power to go on with their life unpunished. The military has done nothing to disprove the idea that they promote a culture that allows rape and sexual assault by shielding offenders from civilian scrutiny. The same idea applies here.
There are times — seldomly, these days, I’ll admit — when it breaks my heart that thousands of decent police officers are taking a shit rap for what happened to Mike Brown and Eric Garner. But supporting cops like my cousin can be a real fucking hard pill to swallow when they demonstrate an inability to accept the inevitability of human nature: sometimes, there are fucked up people who are given power they don’t deserve.
Sometimes, we need to take a cold hard look at the person next to us and admit that they aren’t in this for the right reasons.
