Black lives matter is a huge public issue currently. There have been hundreds of peaceful protests and gatherings all around the country, just in the last few months. Social media and facebook live and movements like #blacklivesmatter are platforms where people are voicing their opinions and it’s definitely raising awareness on the issue, but nothing has been done to start solving it.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, both black and white communities views cops as unaccountable and think police use inappropriate force. In some cities, the Department of Justice has rolled out a program where officers are required to wear a front facing cameras on their bodies the entire time they are on duty. In those communities they have found a decrease in the use of force from officers and also in complaints about officers from the public.
