Dear Next White American Cop Who Shoots an Unarmed Black Person On Video



Setting aside for the moment your seemingly hardwired racism and your eerie resonance with various historically painful gatherings of uniformed thugs, I ask: Has it ever occurred to you that you just might not be bright enough for this line of work?

I mean to ask: Is it possible that you lack enough IQ points to qualify as someone responsible for protecting the public? Even the exclusively white public?

Are you and your supervisors unable to grasp the reality that armed assaults on civilians are likely not only to be recorded and circulated, but also to lead to prison time for you, and to result in disgrace, civil unrest, and chaos?

If so ...

If a sense of shared humanity won't prevent you from shooting unarmed persons ...

... and if you're not smart enough to realize you will indeed become a global pariah for doing so ...

... and if your superior is incapable of preventing violent, idiotic racists like you from getting access to lethal weapons at public expense ...

... could I respectfully suggest that you check out of the police force indefinitely and get some therapy?

Now?
