But those alleged police are not police. Fascism has been in America since at least the 1930's if not longer and that is very bad as fascism and other things tries to infiltrate and destroy countries in a variety of ways. Police brutality is a minor symptom of larger issues. Police brutality has been declining after the 1990's in a variety of ways, partly due to increased regulations, laws, and that started causing side-effects, as in increased crime and other problems. Too many police, especially police at the top, have been leftists, etc, and too many good cops are not allowed to work themselves up the ladder. A cop I knew was telling me this in the 1990's and others have been speaking out on it as well for years. We are being distracted by minor symptoms while ignoring root causes that lie under our noses.
