Black officers torn between duty and race
from The Associated Press via Officer.com
With the nation roiled by two grand juries' recent decisions not to indict white police officers in the deaths of unarmed black men, some black officers say that as they enforce the law, they also wonder whether the system they're sworn to uphold is stacked against black men. In interviews conducted by The Associated Press reporters across the nation, retired and active black officers expressed concern about how black men are treated by the largely white police forces in the United States, an issue that has led to protests alleging police brutality. The officers say they want change just as much as anyone else and advocate for it where they can because they, too, have something to lose.
