Following the global outrage of the murder of George Floyd and the unjust treatment of African American people everywhere, the people of The United States have taken to the streets to protest. In advocating for the end to police brutality and the arrest of all officers involved in the George Floyd murder, citizens of America have all banned together to have their voices heard. 

Although people have been innocently and peacefully protesting, police officers from various states including the N.Y.P.D. and the L.A.P.D. have turned violent. These officers have been using excessive force while being unprovoked! Innocent women, men, and children have been pepper sprayed, tear gassed, hit with rubber bullets, and they have been beaten with batons. These batons are extremely dangerous and can lead to the fracture of ribs, broken bones, organ trauma, severe brain injuries, and in some cases death.

These officers who are supposed to be protecting the innocent have been taking advantage of their power and are releasing their aggression on innocent civilians. Often, one person will be singled out and beaten by a gang of officers. In addition, these poor victims are unable to protect themselves for fear of being arrested for "assaulting" an officer. Instead of sinking billions of dollars into the violent weapons of police officers, the money should be put towards housing the homeless, providing free public transportation, free healthcare for all, and more. Please help put an end to excessive force in America so we can live in a world without fear of being murdered!
