- In our American history class we are researching contemporary issues and designing ways that people can take action and improve our community. Our group is focused on police brutality. This issue is important because it impacts people’s lives in our community. This issue is complicated because it is caused by the law enforcement using excessive force and racial discrimination. However, we need to address it because it has serious effects like not feeling safe, and the fear towards the police. It also has the long term effect of mourning and having emotional distress. To address this issue, we think that the law enforcement should have a better relationship with the community. Some people might oppose this idea because police might not have time and will always be on duty, but it is a good solution because the connection between the officers and the society will improve by a lot. To raise awareness about police brutality, we have made a prototype that is a documentary video. Please give us any feedback you have about our prototype to help us improve it to help raise awareness about this important issue. Here is the link to our video. Please look at it and tell us what you think.
