Not every police officer is a bad human being.
There are over 600,000 law enforcement officers in the U.S. Many enter the field with good intentions, believing they are the ones who will protect and serve their communities, only to realize that the American criminal justice system does not allow them to do that.
While police officers can be good people, there can be no good cops.
The justice system was built to protect the privileged while brutalizing the marginalized. It can only carry out its mission by ensuring it remains upheld by officers who will keep their heads down and blindly follow given orders. There is no room for hesitation. There is no room for dissent.
In today’s episode, Shaun shares the story of Officer Williams and how his bravery in the face of adversity should set an example for all.
