The thing that sucks about this thread to me is that it can't exist in a vacuum. Those who would want to distract or diminish the systemic racism and violence against minorities by police officers all over the country often bring up violence done by minorities to other minorities as some kind of "what about that" to shift the conversation. And that sucks, and it's disingenuous and wrong.
But that doesn't mean the violence isn't happening, and it doesn't mean people are any closer to a long-term solution or a short-term solution for it. In Atlanta over the weekend 14 people were shot in the same area Rayshard Brooks was murdered by police. Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms had a lot to say on it. Some pieces:
"It has to stop. You can't blame this on police officers. It's about people who shot a baby in a car. We're doing each other more harm than any officer on this force."
"With the Civil Rights Movement there was a defined common enemy. Now it's the enemy within we're fighting. Police reform is a part of this, but we also have to reform our communities."
I don't know, it's terrible. I hope it's not used as a reason to not move forward with police reform, because I believe the way police interact with these communities is a significant contributor to the violence. But yeah, it is an ignored aspect of our society. Conservatives bring it up because it is a convenient shield to hide behind when they have to talk about things like gun rights or the systemic built in racism of police organizations across America. Democrats don't really talk much about it unless they're talking about gun violence because they don't seem to have the answers either, or if they do, they aren't willing to take the steps to enact them.
Hopefully we'll get there.
