Police Brutality

Police brutality 
should not be 
ignored, but 
exposed.

Excessive force 
is being used on
innocent civilians 
over petty shit.

Protect And Serve
they pledge, feels 
more like a purge 
instead.

Hot headed cops
above the law, 
breaking the laws 
they sworn to uphold.

Seems more like 
thugs dressed in 
uniforms.

I see them everyday 
on cellphones driving,
parked at fire hydrants
on non emergency...

Going through red lights 
without their sirens on,
with no care for human 
lives at all.

Bullying, patronizing our 
society, causing fear, and 
bloodshed.

When will this nightmare 
end ?

When will police brutality 
come to an end ?

    Gosh a powerful write - they say power corrupts and sadly I have to agree there are some policemen who think they are above the law. Hugs jan xx
