The fact that I’ve had three different training coaches at work on three separate occasions make APD police brutality jokes (as in “The customer must make the 911 call, otherwise Apd shows up here and Bang BANG! Ha ha! I kid! We like to joke here.” ) makes me depressed about how common place this problem has become.
Yet I’m glad its being talked about and people are becomeing more aware. I just wish people didn’t treat it like it was the norm. i understand that making jokes about painfull life truths that we can’t avoid is a way of coping, but this isnt something we should just accept as a life fact, make jokes about it and move on! We need to fight back against this system, not make it a permanent part of our everyday conversation!
