  •  This is not a party line issue, Dem or Rep.... (6+ / 0-)

    politicians are all responsible to be held accountable to their constituencies--and they are all failing, especially when it comes to issues of addressing unjust police brutality & murder of people of color in poor communities.  As we frequently chant while protesting police brutality "the whole damn system is guilty!".  Dems are just as complicit in perpetuating police brutality as Reps.--and not to belittle anyone, but I want to give the definition of complicit:
    "An individual is complicit in a crime if he/she is aware of its occurrence and has the ability to report the crime, but fails to do so.  As such, the individual effectively allows criminals to carry out a crime despite possibly being able to stop them...."

    Believe me, Dems are aware of the crime and have the ability to do something about it, they just don't have the proper $motivation$ to act.
