This past Tuesday night a CMPD officer shot and killed Keith Lamont Scott while serving a warrant for a different man at an apartment complex on Old Concord Rd.
The killing was not only unjust and unnecessary – it also highlighted what might be the biggest flaw in our current police system.
After this past week’s events, I sincerely hope that the CMPD will do a full examination of how they train their officers, especially when it comes to using lethal force – perhaps they could implement a device like this into their arsenal:
One of our authors recently wrote a piece about “Why The Black Lives Matter Movement is Important,” that goes into much more detail about the systemic racism that exists in our nation, and other problems with our police force training.
Do you think there is a problem in our policing system? How do you think it could be solved?
