In Passionate Response to Recent Murders of Black Men by Cops, Black Police Officer Pleads for Biased Officers to Find Another Career
No words can express the hurt and agony a Black mother goes through seeing our children being murdered by the police. Imagine the hurt and shame when the Black mother is a police officer and must adhere to the code of silence.
Well this strong sister, Nakia Jones, stood up and called a spade a spade saying she is ashamed of the actions of some of the police on the streets after seeing the murder of Alton Sterling by a cop. She appealed to those police officers who are racist to find another profession. She also pleaded to our young Black boys and girls to unite and stop killing each other.
Nakia Jones is a shining example of a police officer who understands her role. She also underscores one of the reasons that we can’t turn on police. In addition to it being just as wrong as what they are doing to our people, MOST police officers are good people working a job that serves the community. At the end of the day, they just want to go home to their children just like us. We must all come together to find a way to eliminate the bad cops.
#Nakia Jones is speaking truth. She is my hero!
