I am challenging myself, I am not really for police brutality I honestly think that they should stop.

Police Brutality is something this nation sort of needs. When people are rioting what do you expect the police to do? They could just let the people ruin the city and have them pay for it all. The people may call the police force racist but they are really just defending themselves.

I thank my opponent for inviting me to debate and respect him for wanting a challenge. Happy debating!

Police officers using excessively violent means to deal with criminal and even non-criminal activity is not how the men and women that are supposed to "Protect and Serve" us should act.

Race and ethnicity impact decisions.

1.) African Americans are assaulted or killed by police more than any other race and, according to Justice on Trial (2000), 70% of traffic stops involved black drivers yet only 17% of traffic crimes were actually committed by blacks. Severe acts toward a group based on race is not justice!

Even criminals have Constitutional rights.

1.) Through the 6th Amendment the accused have the right to a fair trial to determine guilt. If officers take it upon themselves to dish out judgement, this right is taken from the accused.

Violence breeds violence.

1.) When police use excessive force it causes reason for distrust and rebellion. These feelings lead even the innocent to act out.
