As bad as this year's fire season in California is [...]
"The general public - meaning the average, relatively 'comfortable' white person - ignorantly wants to hold on to the notion that all of these deaths of unarmed minorities, and all the abuse we see growing across our nation in law enforcement is all done by a 'few bad apples'. That of course is absurd. Because the constant repetitive legacy of these continuing needless deaths only happen because of an institutional culture and mindset effecting the majority within the ranks of the police. And such ongoing abuse of power by so called 'bad apples' has only been allowed to go virtually unchecked because the majority of the other cops are dutifully CONFORMING to that culture, and not calling it out. I consider that 'silent majority' to be just as 'bad' if not worse in some ways, than those who pull the trigger unjustly or grind their knee for almost 9 minutes into someone's neck while they are begging for air."
