Driving is not a crime.
I am exhausted by the excuses made for police officers who murder Black people.
I am nauseated by the system, build upon racist societal norms, that perpetuate these excuses.
There is no room for "error" when your job provides you access to lethal weapons. None.
The badge must no longer be a source of protection from the consequences of those “errors.”
Nor can the badge remain the shield that obfuscates the inherent, systemic racism that has made “Driving While Black” a life-threatening activity.
