Listen: Artists Speak up About Police Brutality and Racial Inequality

When people talk about Ferguson, this is the story they are referring to.  Are you starting to see connections between the stories of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Michael Bell? We see one glaring one for sure. Police officers’ accounts of what happened and their official stories that are released through their superiors are often found to be erroneous. When a police officer’s reputation, job and therefore general well-being are on the line, do you really expect them to tell the complete and honest truth in situations like these? I think we all can conclude that when someone is being accused they do the best they can to protect themselves. This seems to be a motto, or downright mantra, of police departments: Stick together; Don’t admit you are wrong.
