Black police officers constantly say to me, ‘All cops are not bad, Tom!’
No, they aren’t. But if you’re a good cop ignoring, covering for or worse covering UP, for a bad cop, you’re just as bad.
Nothing would have ever gotten done if good people didn’t stand up against bad people no matter what the repercussions would be.
Good cops have to push out the bad cops or the system will remain the same.
We still need the National Urban League, NAACP, National Action Network, Rainbow PUSH, Black Lives Matter and all who are not afraid to put skin in the game.
We can only make progress when we have plan of action. It’s not only about protests, it’s about policy, too. We have a big job to do and we can’t do it alone. Let’s support these organizations with our voices AND our dollars. We need it now more than ever.
