Police why do you patrol
my neighborhood streets?
Yes…yes, I know you suppose
to serve and protect!
But your service comes with
bullet holes and stitches!
And how can you protect when
you’re the biggest threat?!
Don’t you see; its your racial
profiling and senseless brutalities
that makes it hard for the likes of me
to trust the police! We still have
nightmares of Rodney King!
Not to mention the life taking
situations, you know the murders
that were claim to be done with
justification! What is wrong… you
look perplexed! Maybe this will help;
here my evidence… As of yet, 2017
four-hundred-twenty-one dead! And
none by accident! How can we forget,
2015, when you went on a killing spree!
Killing a black man nearly two times a week!
SHUT UP! I didn’t ask you to speak!
You can’t explain how 37% of the unarmed
you slain were black, isn’t odd because we
only make up 13% of the U.S. population!
Oh…let me guess… you had justification!
