We all have caused police brutality. We are the ones the police supposed to protect. We are the ones who have not taken a stand. We have allowed this to keep happening. The Baltimore Sun addressed this in an article detailing how $5.7 million was spent on victims of police brutality from 2011 to 2014. These were settlements on behalf of victims, not sentences given the perpetrators. If I had committed these crimes, I would have been sentenced to prison. If we had solved police brutality in 2011, then the $5.7 million would have never been spent and Freddie Gray would not have been a victim of police brutality. We have ignored this issue for too long.
