Of course, it was. This way no one has to go to jail.No accountability found or given. That is my country. Philando, Trayvon, Michael, and Sandy. For some of us, America is good, others it may even be great, but it NEEDS IMPROVEMENT to say the absolute least.
The fact is, juries can’t seem to find fault with the police. It reminds me of the Stanford experiment where we learned how people respond to perceived authority.  Google it, it’s a fascinating study of what you can get people to do if you just ask them to and tell them they won’t have to deal with the consequences because an authority told them to do it. People are biased into thinking the police are there to help, save, or protect them. It’s such a foreign concept to many that is what they do. I only feel terror, because I know they can do anything and I can’t do anything. Someone might give my family money when I am dead, but there will be no repercussions or even discouragement from doing it over and over, again and again. So I try to live my life to the fullest and love my people fully because you just never know how long you have.
