These cops are Slave Masters in policemen's uniforms. There is no difference in the brutality, the method appears to be guns, choking, stomping. All of this on the Black woman's son or daughter. Same as 1619, nothing's different; just a continuation; 500 years and counting. 500 YEARS.182,500 days, give or take a few of living on this soil with these people originated from EUROPE.
