Race & Policing in America
The number of African-Americans that have been shot by police officers has received a lot of attention recently in the media. Are police officers unfairly targeting African-Americans (and/or other minority groups) for crimes? Or are police officers unfairly made scape-goats in an increasingly violent society where they are forced to make life/death decisions in a matter of seconds? Are there moral, historical, and/or sociological considerations either side is overlooking? Perhaps even ignoring? What needs to be done? What can be done?
