During this day and age, many people are seeking ways to bring a stop to police brutality and the lack of police accountability. Some are very vocal about “law or order,” but are silent on the aspect of “cause and effect.” While people may have various opinions on this subject, an expert in this field would be most likely the person to bring some positive light to such a dark situation.
Let us start by asking the question, “How would you describe an expert?” Merriam Webster states that an expert “having or show special skill or knowledge because of what you have been taught or what you have experienced.” Everyone is an expert in his or her own right, but a takes a person who has deep experience though practice and education in a particular field. In order to do this, we will have to find an expert in this field, learn solutions directly from the expert, and build from what the expert teaches others to develop their own body of work.
One expert that would bring a solution to this problem would be an educator or professor such as Dr. Marc Lamont Hill. He is the Distinguished Professor of African American Studies at Morehouse College. He is also the host of BET Newsand VH1 Live, as well as a political contributor for CNN. He is also known as a social justice activist, organizer, and founding board member of “My5th” which is a non-profit organization devoted to educating the youth about their legal rights and responsibilities. Hill is a great example as an expert of police brutality and lack of police accountability not only does he teach others on the subject, he has also been a victim of a racial profiling according to NewsOne.
A second great example of a person that would be an expert on this subject would be a former officer such as Redditt Hudson. He is a former St. Louis Police Department officer that has thought a lot about ways on changing the “system” and they way citizen portray police officers. He has worked on police, abuse, racial justice, and criminal reform at the Missouri ACLU and other organizations such as the “The Ethics Project.”
Another great example of an expert on police brutality and the lack police accountability would be a person that not only works for the community but also with the community. Sonya Arrington is an Erie City Council Member and the Executive Director and Founder of “Mothers Again Teen Violence.” On January 5, 2010, Sonya lost her son to gun violence. Ever since that day, Sonya has developed “MATV”, an association that works personally with the youth in their time in need with the power of counseling and mentorship. She is also very vocal about police of having a citizen’s review board for active officers at the Erie Police Department as well as the officers being equipped with body cameras.
An expert that has been very vocal of all the cases of police brutality and the lack of police brutality is a Senior Justice Writer for the New York Daily News named Shaun King. He has not only wrote stories on the heinous actions that were being conducted by police offices, but he also has proposed 25 solutions to stop acts of police brutality and lack of police accountability. He has also begun a movement named “Injustice Boycott.” In order to boycott injustice and police brutality in America, this movement will boycott cities, states, businesses, and institutions which are either willfully indifferent to police brutality and racial injustice or are deliberately partners with it.
Now that you have an idea of who would be the experts on this subject, you have to remember that these are not the only people that are able to help with solutions with this problem. People such as mayors, active police officers, teachers, journalists, and victims of these acts would be excellent examples of experts that will find a way to put a stop to the injustice that is going on in America.
