Police brutality in this country is out of control. We already have daily instances of cops "subduing" people by killing them. Yesterday I wrote about yet another of these murders. Today I see a story of cops killing a 95-year-old man. In a nursing home. Who used a walker. They had riot shields. Riot shields!
Call it what you want. I call it murder.
The police increasingly look on us as foes. They are increasingly militarized, as Radley Balko has been pointing out for years. And we are increasingly in danger. I would think twice before I ever called 911 in this country. I'd be afraid of getting shot.
