Making a Stand Against the Police
In the African American community young youth are profiled and arrested by the police. And it will never stop because there is a system in place to always keep it going. There have been so many African American people wrongly convicted of crimes and taken to jail for no reason. And it continues to keep happening because we aren’t holding are law enforcement accountable for there wrongful act. There is a term used by African Americans called DWB, Driving while black is used because African Americans are harassed and pulled over by the police department. Know one should be scared to drive there car pass the police . This is a wrongful action made by the police. Someone has to enforce the law against the law because they are human and they make human mistakes as well. But how can you try to protect your self against the police and record there action towards you then in up with 15yrs jail time and a felony on your record.
There is a new law in Illinos for recording the police and I feel it isn’t right. If you are caught recording the police without their permission you will end up with jail time and a felony.This a stupid law to me because what police officer who is treating a citizen wrong would give you permission to record his or her wrong doing and get him/her fired from there job. There are two kinds of power that can change the world. And it is money power and people power. We have to stand up and fight this law as a community because now the police can’t be stop. And our youth will continue to be profiled and put in jail like Troy Davis . Lets make a stand and change the laws together as a people.
