Lie #2: There is a “War on Cops”
There is no “war on cops,” and in fact police are safer than they’ve ever been. Policing also isn’t the most dangerous job: roofers are 10x more likely to die on the job, and even taxi drivers are more at risk than cops!
Lie #5: More Black cops will curb police brutality
More Black cops doesn’t help. In fact, it can make things worse, because Black cops want to “fit in” with their white colleagues!
Don’t let anyone use these lies to get you in trouble or sabotage the movement. We have to spread the TRUTH if we’re gonna get free!
