Policing in America is not broken. The judicial system is not broken.
American society is not broken. All are functioning perfectly, doing
exactly what they have done since before some of this nation's most
prosperous slave-murdering robber-barons came together to consecrate into
statehood the mechanisms of their barbarism. Democracy functions.
Politicians, deriving their legitimacy from the public, have discerned the
will of the people and used it to design and enact policies that carry it
out, among them those that govern the allowable levels of violence which
state can visit upon citizen. Taken together with the myriad other
indignities, thefts, and cruelties it visits upon black and brown people,
and the work common white Americans do on its behalf by telling themselves
bald fictions of some deep and true America of apple pies, Jesus, and
people being neighborly to each other and betrayed by those few and
nonrepresentative bad apples with their isolated acts of meanness, the
public will demands and enables a whirring and efficient machine that does
what it does for the benefit of those who own it. It processes black and
brown bodies into white power.
