      Dear Agnes,

      I am intrigued by your post because I think the police have been abusing their power in the U.S and are not punished for it.Also you good evidence of how Police have been abusing their power.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “This photo is trying to say even they have their hands up, they still feel like they are being targeted and are going to shoot anyways. Which I feel is not right. All people including black people should feel safe around any police officer because it is their job to protect us, not shoot us.” I think this is interesting because it shows how police are almost killing for fun since people are complying to the police and being killed anyways.
      Regards,
      Joe
