America and the world are not just waking up to racism and police brutality overnight.
The police, the world over is and should be a “force for good” to keep the equilibrium on law and order in our communities.
The police unions in America have been largely pin pointed as a society for self-preservation and one of the speed bumps for police reform over the years.
So how should we banish the raw emotions that these statues conjure but at the same time ensure that part of our history is not confined to the dustbins of memory?
Notwithstanding all the restrictions, the hardship, the deaths and seeming pause to life as we know it, the emotions running high from the death of George Floyd, and in effect race relations were enough to throw all caution, health guidelines, common sense and every survival instinct out of the window.
