    Police chiefs brought the situation on themselves. Look at Francis Lazarro “Frank” Rizzo of the Philadelphia police. His attitude towards Afro-Americans didn’t change when he became the mayor. The police including the federal agencies like the FBI are being used again the suppress political, social, and economic protests to maintain the status quo in the country; whereby, they are voting against their own interests in getting better wages, working conditions, etc. Having minorities and women on the police force has not change the situation. Sheriff Jeff David A. Clarke Jr., an Afro-American, told the people of Milwaukee County, not to depend on the police to come when calling 911.
