Policing the Police

Sun, 11/04/2018 - 14:41 -- iadamo

Haven't you heard?The minorities are still the majorityYet the majority still aren't flourishingParalyzed, trapped in poverty, jailedWhy is that, you askHaven't you heard? Did you watch the news?Another black person downNot by another young foolBut the ones decorated in blueWhy is that, you askHaven't you heard? Did you read the paper?People are marching, stillAsking for a change, stillHoping they write the wrongsWhy is that, you askHaven't you heard? Marching for? Justice,Marching for the policing of policeBody cams, fair Internal Affairs, special trainingAnything to help keep these cops from detaining and eliminatingThe majority of these minorities
