I was recently reading an article about police brutality and I feel like the press only reports the negative stories of law enforcement.
In State College, the police help us out when there are football games by doing major crowd control. They make the environment feel safer, especially for people with young children or families.
Nationally, most officers are always doing their job, and police shootings don’t happen very often. Most are not racist toward black people.
Police do their jobs really well, and they shouldn’t be criticized. Just because a handful of police around the country may have done terrible things, doesn’t mean that all police are like that.
