Letter to the editor: Police will benefit from reimagined policing system


Republicans miss the mark by dismissing repeated police brutality against African Americans as evidence of a few bad apples. Only a wholesale transformation of policing in America will stem the tide of needless fatalities in the context of petty traffic offenses. Yes, African Americans disproportionately pay the ultimate price for militaristic and racist police tactics. But police also will benefit from a reimagined policing system.
