Stop It Stop It Stop It

[TRIGGER WARNING: POLICE BRUTALITY, POLICE MURDER OF BLACK PEOPLE, GUN VIOLENCE]

I swear to god, immediately halt all activity in all police departments and disarm all officers until the many racists can be weeded the fuck out or the entire system can be replaced. I don't care how many people commit crimes in the meantime. We don't deserve law and order after letting this go on for so long.

Tyre King, 13, murdered after running from police and allegedly having a BB gun. Youngest since Tamir Rice.

Terence Crutcher, murdered after his car broke down in the middle of the road. Unarmed, had his hands up. There was no reason for police to even approach him with weapons drawn. Now he's dead.

Keith Lamont Scott, murdered while sitting in his own car, reading a book while waiting for his son to come home from school. Shot by an undercover cop looking to arrest someone else. He was disabled. Police say he had a gun, witnesses say he did not. North Carolina recently passed a law allowing police to withhold dashboard and body camera footage from the public.

Anthony Lamar Smith, murdered back in 2011, but new footage has been released clearly showing the officer that killed him, Jason Stockley, taking a gun out of the police vehicle and planting it on the body of the man he had just murdered.

Terrill Thomas, found dead in his jail cell back in April 2016 after being denied water for days. His death was just ruled a homicide after the medical examiner found that he died of profound dehydration. A terrible way to die.

Stop murdering black men. Stop murdering black women. Stop murdering black children. Stop murdering black people because you're racist and think that all black people are dangerous because of their skin color. Stop pretending this nearly daily occurrence is anything but anti-black racism.

Stop.
