Good afternoon. My name is DeVante and i’m from garden heights I’m here on behalf of the shooting that took place involving my friend Khalil. Thank you for also allowing me to be the lead juror in this case and talk about mass incarceration and police brutality. Khalil has been one of my good friends and it’s so upsetting to me that one fifteen gunned him down. One fifteen knew he was in the wrong once he seen it wasn’t a gun.But if police officers are trained to use their taser before using their firearm why aren’t they following their training.And they should be held accountable when it comes to handling lethal weapons.This relates to mass incarceration because they refuse to use their taser against people that’s not of color. I draw on personal experience when describing how Khalil was gunned down by officer 115 without warning which effectively helps frame my argued position that mass incarceration has taken place here. Additionally,I make an effort to inquire into multiple perspectives when discussing this civic issue by pointing out that not only have people of color been victims of gun violence. There are more counts of color being gunned down and white police officers claiming they had a weapon. Every day there’s a person of color being shot,beaten and killed by white police officers. Mass incarceration definitely took place during this occurrence because they instantly gunned him down without a warning. I refuse to let America get away with another mass incarceration incident. America should do better when teaching these police officers to use their tasers before their firearms because now there wouldn’t be any cases involving a teenager being gunned down all because they look suspicious.
I want to end mass incarceration because I don’t wanna see another one of my friends or family in a situation where they are gunned down based on their skin color. I’m trying to change my ways but Khail needs his justice and so do the other people who have been gunned down and the police officers have been set free.
I agree with the sentmate and overall even though it wasn’t super long I think it got the points that it needed too
I wholeheartedly concur with your position, and I appreciate how you used personal examples to strengthen your case. What steps should we take to address this problem and try to find a solution, in your opinion?
I love how you connected a lot of info into your own life experience. do you think that people like you feel the same persecution
Lots of connections to your own life. Very great work.
I love the passion that you shared with us
DeVante, I appreciate you sharing your personal experience with us. I’m sorry you’ve experienced that, but I want to take the time to commend you for using this platform as a way to convey your perspective on police brutality and gun violence.
You have great key points about your friend story and the lack of training competition for cops and how it connects with the story your are telling us. I want to ask you, what do you think the method should be in order to change the incomplete training of police officers.
I love how you added your personal views to your post. It really brings character to your perspective, and enhances the story.
The way you put it really highlights how understanding the administration has been of police officers. One out of every ten people failed in judgment, costing Khalil his life. The connections that you made to your personal life defiantly gave me a better understanding of your points.
I really appreciate the stance you have taken for this assignment, in particular the piece that speaks on the incompetence of police training. Not to ramble here, but the way you described it really emphasizes just how forgiving the government has been towards cops. One-Fifth ten has make a mistake in judgement that costed the life of Khalil. If a surgeon did the same exact thing and mistakenly took another person’s life, I would bet he would spend the rest of his life in jail. Which makes your sentiment about training police officers more effectively so they don’t make these grave mistakes that cause tragedies.
With that being said, justice is a feeble thing in the law enforcement system, and we’ve rarely seen the full extent of justice being served to officers who have committed wrongdoings, non-fatal or fatal. How impactful would it be to introduce new legislation that punished officers unforgivingly for their wrong-doings? How would it reduce or perhaps increase shootings like these?
Overall, amazing post, thanks for sharing!
I fully agree with your position, and I like how you used personal examples to further your case. Your personal connections shows how much of an issue it is in the world with it happens to one of your dear friends.
I completely agree with your stance and like how you incorporated personal connections, it really made the argument stronger. How do you think we move forward with this situation and attempt to resolve it?
