Implementing non-lethal rubber ammunition, in exchange for lethal live ammunition, for police officers, will save the lives of millions.  Furthermore, stopping the use of excessive force and reprimand, in regards to interaction between black individuals and police officers /judicial system should be enforced. Among the lives that will be saved, I want to call attention to the African-American/Black ethnicity group that has been dealt the lowest level of respect, courtesy and integrity in regards to police brutality and the injustices that occur on a regular basis. Police are here to protect and serve this country (United States of America), and that statement is not accurate nor a reflection of the cruel reality that I have experienced as an African American/Black man in this country. There is no need, under any circumstances, for a regular routine traffic stop to result in a black citizen, a black brother, a black sister, a black mother, a black father, a black daughter and/or black son being murdered or excessively abused by the hands of police officers. 

Police officers are trained well enough and equipped with the proper skills to detain an individual without having their fully loaded lethal weapon drawn, aimed and fired at an unarmed individual. Taking someone's life and leaving an eternal gap in their family, friendships and relationships should never be in the conversation or thoughts of those who serve as police officers on the frontline.
