Good cops?

i do not care about good cops

i do not want to hear about good cops when this cop abuses a Black or brown body

i do not want to hear about the commitment of the force when this cop terrorizes a Black or brown or Muslim or immigrant community

i do not care that a good cop played basketball with those Black or brown kids when his brother in blue shot and killed one of these Black or brown kids

stop talking to me about good cops

your police department and your ‘law and order’ was created to destroy black communities

the system you pledge allegiance to when you first put that uniform on

the rules you swear to protect and follow

are flawed, are racist

your system was built by white supremacists

survives to continue the goals of white supremacy

Do not talk to me about good cops in a system that exists to continue legal slavery

do not talk to me about good cops after a fellow cop murders an innocent person and claims self defense

the good cop should have talked to you or anyone about the fellow cop’s bias

the ‘good cop’ knows but will not betray the force

Please do not talk to me about good cops or bad cops when you refuse to see

the system is a problem

the power you hold is a problem

your perception of the humanity of Black and brown persons is a problem

your refusal to stop benefiting from white supremacy is a problem.
