First of all let’s get the color thing out of the way. There are 3 colors involved in this debate: Black, White and Blue. Black is complaining about Blue so why is White upset about that?
Police should be objective, regardless of their personal beliefs or affiliation once a man puts on that blue uniform he is no longer representing himself but is representing the idea of liberty and justice for all. So if Police no longer represent objective and blind justice as the enforcement arm of the law then the contract between the people and the government is broken.
In order for a lawful society to exist a majority if not all the people must trust that everyone is equal under the law once the perception of fairness is broken that is the end of a civil society.
So when black people complain about police brutality white people shouldn’t be upset at black people for voicing their complaints, unless they agree with police brutality? I am sure that there are no white people that agree with police brutality but I am also sure that there are some white people that are ok with police brutality as long as it’s not against white people.
