My heart is sick, and I am scared, not just for myself, but for all of us.
First - To address officer's use of excessive force: We rarely see anything but the aftermath, yet we judge these officers who I believe, in 99.9% of cases, are truly trying to do the right thing. Case in point: A video taken by a bystander went viral. He thought the police were being too violent with a suspect, Turns out, the activity prior to the recording that wasn't on the video gave more than justifiable cause for the way the officers acted, and guess what? The proof is on their dashcam and bodycams, but are the news outlets showing those videos? One did. The media is feeding the frenzy.
Second - Worldwide we've seen bombings and shootings, and even a man using a truck as a weapon as well as an attempted military coup. There has been so much bloodshed across the world.
Last - There is so much controversy surrounding both major party candidates for President, I think we should just scratch it all and start over. No, that can't happen, but I don't feel confident about either candidate.
