|Good afternoon. My name is uncle Carlos and I am from garden heights. Thank you for allowing me to address this commission on the topic of a young man getting shot. I’m a cop myself so what 115 did was wrong and it looks worse on her end because she shot a black man. If that was me I would have handled things differently. I still think the young man shouldn’t have moved because he should know how cops are. I think the only thing that can really say is he was moved when was asked not to. Other than that what can they say he wasn’t a bad young man he didn’t sell drugs or anything. I don’t want people to think every white cop is the same because of that shooting because they not i worked with white cops that’s chill and treat every race the same and i respect for that because a lot of white cops don’t do that but i know that shooting going to make it seem like that but please don’t think like that not all white cops the same. My claim is that the cop was wrong for shooting the young black man. I still say he shouldn’t have moved as black people we know how cops are. They try to find every little thing to make it seem like we are doing something wrong. That’s not right. I’m a cop myself but i treat every race the same i don’t pick and choose how i treat blacks white and others race so it’s not really fair that young man lost his life. The shooting of khalil probably makes the black males look at all cops the same and i don’t want them to think. My claim is that all cops are not the same. If that was me in that situation i would have handled it differently i wouldn’t have shot that young man because i know how people think like yea every cop is a nut and i don’t want them to think they way. I’m a cop myself so after that happened people probably were thinking he was brainwashed by the white people we can’t trust him he probably just like that cop that shot that young man and i don’t want people to think that cause i’m not. I think they should care because they are not from here so if they get locked up here they are not going to know what’s going on. I say that’s wrong because they have freedom on the line so they should know everything that’s going on. As a cop myself i think the officer should be fired but she can also make a case her life was in danger because he did move when he was asked not to so she have a case there but we all know they gone let her keep her job and say the young man move when he wasn’t supposed too. The shooting of khalil probably makes the black males look at all cops the same and i don’t want them to think. The way systems is everybody think it’s messed up to me it’s half and half some people get what they deserve but not everybody i know i hold it down on my end but the system can go both ways a lot of white people don’t get what they deserve at times. As a cop i would change how the justice system just off how i will like everybody to be treated the same and not let people that’s gone make the same mistake that got them there. |

How did you decide to write from a different point of view?
When you say America is on trial do you mean the Country of the United States as in everyone or just the people in the goverment branches
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences with us. It’s refreshing to hear from a cop who treats everyone equally regardless of race. Your perspective on the shooting of Khalil and the importance of understanding the local community as a cop is valuable.
I like the black and white picture . You wrote as you were being in the cop point of view which can allow me to somewhat understand. “ I still think the young man shouldn’t have moved because he should know how cops are.” can be a very biased statement.
I really like this because it is deep and with the pictures it reminds me of things that have happened in 2020.
‘Nice work 👌’
i really like your picture choice. why did you choose to write from a different pov?
First thing’s first, I really wanted to speak on the image you decided to have as your featured image for this post. It depicts a cop smiling talking to another cop whilst they are on the job. This is one of the most important components to understanding the issue of policing, realizing that these cops are human too. The entire post you made is pristine in humanizing the other side of the policing debacle sweeping America. It represents cops as people, not as automated monsters and whatnot, and therefore suggests that each cop is flawed as any other human on this earth. Additionally, you also speak your mind in all honesty of things presented by the shooting of Khalil. You excellently present yourself as the middleman. You want what’s best out of the police force, and that sometimes requires speaking your mind, which you did. That is essentially all that matters here.
To branch off, I wanted to speak on your brutal honesty. What was your thought process when writing out this response? Were you expecting ridicule from your own police force when this post was going to be published or were you just steadfast to speaking your mind without thinking of the consequences?
Thank you so much for posting this!
I appreciate how you spoke from the officer’s POV and spoke on how you would have handled it. This shows your passion for your job, and you are on the side of right and not validating the wrong in this occurrence.
I liked how you spoke from the officer’s POV and said how you would have handled it. I’m not sure if this was on purpose but when you said “I still think the young man shouldn’t have moved because he should know how cops are.” it was like you were criticizing the police while also writing from the perspective of one. It was very interesting to read
Your writing made me want to read more, as you were typing from another police officer’s interest telling your personal feelings, thoughts, and how you would have handled things.
I like how you made personal connections and a picture that connects to your writing
I like how you connected your writing back to a book and you used a great picture to symbolize your work.
