I hate these protests

June 01, 2020 — Sebastian Alejandro

and here's why.


The main focus of these protests are supposed to be peaceful. No looting, no rioting, no burnings of buildings. However, there are MANY cases where the police are the ones inciting violence. People shout, "Hands up, don't shoot!" with their hands in the air, and yet they still get shot? The police are the ones inciting violence. Peaceful protesters, get shot; the media, get shot; people who aren't even involved in the protests, get shot.

I lie awake at night thinking how people out there are protesting for change and getting hurt about it, and it makes me sick to my stomach. We need change. Now.
