Police brutality on African-American’s is violent and harmful. In our society today many police are unfairly treating African American people.There is a lot of evidence and statistics here that can help me prove what I 'm saying is the truth. Police brutality on African Americans is a terrible social injustice that must end. In society there are many young black males and females that have been killed in the past years due to police brutality. Michael Brown was one of these young people. Thousands of people were protesting against the police after this shooting, saying how outraged they are that this happened and also how they targeted him because of his skin color. Michael Brown was shot dead on the day August 9th, 2014. The police…show more content…
On the other hand there are many policemen and women that are doing their jobs to the best of their ability and succeeding. Though every now and then you will have a policeman or woman who just takes advantage of what they can do. That alone is a social justice for them to act out on it and take it out on innocent people especially people of a different race, is just terrible. There 's a large sense of pathos in this argument.
