White Police Officers and Black Americans

There are so many cases of black people who have been killed
by police officers in the US.

In many cases, the police officers were not charged.
I was wondering why the police officers had to kill black people. The police operate
in a challenging job where they are authorized to use deadly force with their guns
when warranted. In my personal opinion, it is a challenging environment where emotions
can run high and police have to make split second decisions when fear, power
and self-defense all can be tangled with the decision whether or not they
should shoot their gun.

It takes great discipline and responsibility to act appropriately, especially
when you are dealing with potential criminals that may not care about any code of ethics,
rules, or laws.

This is just my personal observation.

Also, a stereotype exists where white police officers perceive African-Americans are
usually criminals. Some think that it is a subconscious idea buried in their minds,
while some may actually be legitimately racist.

Of course, there many respectful and hardworking officers who
work for citizens as public servants. In a lot of fields of work, there can be
a small percentage of the people who come to exemplify the majority of
the workers in the career field when they make a mistake or do something wrong.
That may or may not be fair, but those who do wrong can often create a perception
in the eyes of the public that exemplifies everyone in their respective community.
This seems especially true for policemen in light of the George Floyd tragedy and
the Rodney King beatings as high profile cases that rocked the fabric of society
in America.

Let’s take a closer look at some cases that were not as widely publicized
but have still been documented.

BuzzFeed News had a list of young black people who were
killed by white officers in 2014 to 2015, I would like to review these cases.
These black people were mainly killed by white police officers. Only the people
who were actually there can know for sure what the context of the situation was
and what the police officer’s true intent was. Having said that, it has been labeled
that these African-Americans were killed as a result of police misjudgment.
If police officers did not kill these black people, they would still be alive today.

Gray died of a spinal cord injury a week after he was arrested by
the Police officer. He was arrested for allegedly possessing switchblade.
The officers involved had been criminally charged.

These black people were often killed as a result of a misunderstanding.
One did not have a gun in the glove compartment, one had a toy gun.
Why were they killed? Because they were black, and police officers made
quick decisions thinking that they were black criminals without properly
assessing the situation.

Lately, it’s not just black, any “colored” people were targeted
to be blamed especially, after Corona virus came from China.

For example, the Asian community at large has come under fire as a result of
the tragedy of the global Covid-19 pandemic. For example, in Torrance,
California a Japanese owner of a cooking utensil store was a victim of a hate crime where he received a bomb threat and was told “Monkey, go back to Japan!”

It’s hard time now for minorities to live in the U.S..
