A 15-year federal law enforcement black female officer got pulled over by a white Alabama cop on July 31, 2020.
I pray that this woman is protected from all dangers physically, financially and spiritually.My heart hurts for Ms Jackson! I’m a white retired County Constable from Northern Kentucky. I can say that I don’t know what she goes through as a black female in this country, but I can say I have never treated anyone any different than anyone else! Hell my mother always told me that we all bleed red (some of us blue) and breathe the same air. I always taught my kids the same! I am embarrassed for those 2 deputies! God bless you Ms. Jackson and keep fighting the good fight! I know I am!!Been there done that, 25 years in law enforcement. My Lord, how many experiences like that I had, even in my own jurisdiction.In uniform her blue life didn’t matter because her black life was never recognized…I’m a white man who has been in federal and local law enforcement for the same time as you and I could not agree with you more! You are 100% right and officers like them don’t deserve to wear a uniform. They are a danger to the public because they are hyped up with fear and power. We have to be respectful and treat others like humans. Pleas continue to teach new officers how to conduct themselves. Maybe we can make things better…I’m a white male that has been DPSST certified for 15 years, my heart goes out to you. You are completely correct, and I will never understand the scope of discrimination that you have endured based on your color and your gender. Having said that, we all know that the culture of policing needs reform. And I feel bad saying reform because it’s not strong enough. There are so many good people that go into LE and loose themselves in the boys club culture of LE. I have changed my career in the last few months, I live in Portland, OR and I can no longer support the culture that LE was built on. I don’t have to tell you how laws have been designed to keep black and brown people seen as less than. I myself had to battle with the influence of the LE culture, it is real and you are completely correct. I’m so sorry that this happens to you, I am literally crying watching you speak on this because I have seen it so much and I know what you’re saying is true. Some of my closest friends are cops, and they are good people, but the culture of policing was built on discrimination and classism. I’d say stay strong but I can tell by this vid that you don’t need to hear that. So I’ll say I’m sorry, and I hope to live to see true equality.
