American Police have had power over who they choose to put in jail and who not. The death of George Floyd was caused by an american white male police officer who had already had plenty of warnings (due to police brutality).

"Because justice is about more than actuarial probability. A series of shootings by the police have accumulated into a national nightmare. They betray a profound vacancy of values, and the profession hasn’t been able to prove that they are just aberrations. Jordan Edwards, a boy of 15, was shot in the head in Balch Springs, Tex., as a passenger in a car leaving a party. Walter Scott was shot in the back as he fled a South Carolina traffic stop on foot, and the cop planted a Taser next to his dead body." New York Times 

This tragic death is now being heard across the world and as a child I believe actions have consequences and these are times in where we cannot be silent.

"America’s cities are burning because the police are the mirror of our flawed nation. Their work forces everyone to see where citizens truly stand in relation to one another. It reflects our values and prejudices, our glories and sins, our successes and failures."New York Times
