What is up with the Police???

Frankly, the recent killings of people, who may or may not be innocent, in a shoot first ask questions later kind of way by the police is quite appalling!!! I mean, this is America; everybody is innocent until proven guilty. These people are trained on the use of a firearm, they are trained to protect themselves and the innocent (who incidentally happens to be everyone they come in contact with) that is exactly why there are Lawyers and Judges and a fun group of people called the Jury.

This is police brutality suddenly these guys are trigger happy!

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my boys in blue, I love anybody who puts their lives on the line, day in day out, to protect others but this isn't protection, this is intimidation and it needs to stop.

These are recent examples of such horrid events:
