No Black liberation people’s movement on the move, no resignation of officer in McKinney, TX. No video, no resignation. People in McKinney speaking out and demonstrating with national outcry and movement: resignation.
We must always remember where the power that generates change comes from. Yes, the political geography is shifting, and no, a resignation is not enough. The officer should be charged with aggravated assault and a long list of other charges, and all other officers charged as accomplices.
Then reparations to the children and their families and national legislation to disarm the police, as the beginning of a larger restructuring of policing and the criminal justice system in its entirety, with Black liberation at the center of the vision and implementation of change.
