My interaction with uniformed officers over the years has mostly been as the victim of harassment and intimidation by white men who have no tolerance for any version of reality that conflicts with them not having the biggest cock and being able to piss the farthest. I'm a white guy, and I speak English natively. I can't imagine how my experiences would have been different if my skin we're a different color, but I am certain it would have resulted in one of: incarceration, hospitalization, or death.
My father now works as a private investigator mostly for criminal defense, and is now able to see just how completely corrupt and viscous the law enforcement side of the criminal justice system really is. I don't know if he is able to correlate the abuses he investigates with his law enforcement past, but I know it infuriates him to see officers behaving without consequence. I have to agree wholeheartedly with the author of this article, that the only way things will start to get better is if we find a way to hold officers accountable. That system does not exist today but it must!
