A long line of people participated in Public Comment last night for the Citizens Advisory Board. According to most, racism is rampant among Bloomington Police officers.
Evidently the BLACK Police Chief is racist too since he refuses to control the people under him.
Some told tragic stories – like the lady with the 4 years old daughter who was terrified of the police. She claimed it was because of what she heard on the news, she must have missed the stories of cops being shot only because they were cops.
A thirteen year old boy had a hard time relating an incident where he claimed he was profiled. Maybe the officer had good reason for stopping the white guy driving him, maybe not. Nothing happened as a result of the stop, but that was immaterial.
Not In Our Town is a complete failure. Systemic racism runs very deep.
I hope no job creators were listening in. Nobody is going to invest here. It’s an evil place.
The Citizens Review Board will solve everything though, especially when felons get to police the police.
