  • On the heart of this is the use of force by us policing the sword in that horrific video of George Floyd on, We've Seen It time and time and time again.

  • Since there are two interlocking issues here, US policing is violent.

  • Statistics show your six times more likely to die in police custody in the US than in the UK and twice as likely as in Australia.

  • And we know that that violence is disproportionately directed at African Americans.

  • George Floyd's few until long is upheld, and people know they will go to jail.

  • They keep doing it, they protected by wickedness in high places.

  • Of course, not everyone would describe it precisely that way.

  • But there's widespread agreement that better police accountability is needed.

  • The problem is, police forces have long resisted increased oversight.
