Are The Police Really Doing Their Job?

Are The Police Really Doing Their Job?

Ekaterini Stylianou, Opinion Reporter

Recently, police brutality has been happening more frequently. Things are getting out of hand extremely in certain circumstances. When is enough enough?

Under police enforcement, officers are forced to take action when it is needed. Although, some officers don’t even think, and use excessive force when it isn’t necessary. 

I feel like they should use excessive force when they are in immediate danger. That’s when, if the person seems to be attacking or has a weapon. 

There were many cases where officers lose their tempers and use excessive force when that is not needed. This leads to chaos and protests.

To stop this problem from increasing, we should have police officers go through mandatory training about how serious this is and how you should act in these situations. Also, need all police officers to wear body cameras on their uniform for proof of what actually happened at the scene, so the right person gets held accountable.
