Still No Justice for Breonna Taylor
I have been trying to write this article for two weeks. I wanted it to be accurate and factual. The more I researched and the more I read, the more difficult it became for me to write. My emotions kept me on a non ending up and down swing. I felt angry at a system which has denied Breonna Taylor justice. I felt overwhelmed that this is happening again and again and again. I felt deeply disappointed that after all this time, the justice system still works against people of color. It feels sometimes like cops are in our neighborhoods to herd us around and then abuse us. All the while they know that they will never be held accountable for any mistreatment. They can let their bullets loose, 32 bullets in this case, and no real substantive questions will be asked. Well, I have a few questions and I want a few answers.
Season 2 of Criminal UK has arrived on Netflix. The show which first came out last year and depicts the interrogation process in a metropolitan police station. (Last time we also saw Criminal France, Criminal Germany and Criminal Spain.) The series depicts what happens after you are arrested and the detectives come in for the interview. The main goal is not just to get the facts, but to get a confession. It takes me back to the time when Jane Tennison always got her man or woman to confess. In the US we have Law and Order with Detective Benson and Carussi bringing the criminals to confess.
