I know police officers do a very difficult job. They need to make split second decisions and put their lives on the line all of the time. I also know that like any of us, police officers have their own biases and beliefs. Unfortunately though, too many young people of colour die each year at the hands of the police. The police officer who kneeled on the man's neck has had a checkered history in his career in dealing with people of colour. This is not the first time he has been accused of racial bias in his work.
