If you are hearing this, and you are a police officer, hear me out. You and I both know very well how twisted the system is. Officers were originally used to hunt down slaves. I don’t think you need further proof than that. Yet still, proof continues to rise up as black lives are struck down. Black lives, like the lives of Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Breanna Taylor, Amhaud Arbery, Eric Garner, George Floyd and so many more. Those were only off the top of my head. As officers take the mercy of humans lives their own fists and choose to throw it away because of chocolate. And when they are faced with the truth about their racism, throw it back to us as tear gas and batons, beating us down as if that will also beat down the truth. But it doesn’t work. We all know the truth isn't leaving any time soon. The only way to fix this is peace. Lay down your weapons and join the fight. Fight not just to redeem yourself, but so those who pled at the feet of your fellow cops only be killed will rest in peace. Make sure that officers like yourself don't go down in history as people who didn't stand up to the racist system. Make sure that if you stand up and fight, it's not for those who have hurt so many, but for those who have gone down because of their skin. Gone down only to watch in heaven as their allies are struck by their killers. Fight for the truth. Because it's disappearing so fast. And if you don't stand up, soon, it will be gone.
