    Causes For Police Fear & Brutality?

    In May of 2015 the NYTimes reports about a nationwide increase in "young" Americans of African descent committing suicide.

    Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers
    By SABRINA TAVERNISE – MAY 18, 2015

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/19/h...-children-surged-in-2-decades-study-says.html

    More than once, 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar speaks to the media about his abusive childhood that resulted in adolescent depression from witnessing his adult family members selling drugs to their neighbors and using firearms to enforce or protect their drug operations.

    Respected American rapper Tupac Shakur rapped about depression, waking in the morning contemplating suicide, before leaving his home to rob a neighbor's purse so he can feed his hungry belly.

    As a preteen, popular American rapper and supposedly reformed drug dealer Shawn Jay Z Carter shot his drug addicted older brother for stealing from a family member.

    Shawn evolves into a teen and young man writing rap performances describing using his *automatic 'Mack Milli'* to defend his drug crew/gang from rival crews/gangs and to dominate through fear and violence peaceful people living and working in the Marcy Houses and adjoining neighborhoods.

    Before addressing police brutality, wouldn't it make sense to first examine root causes for why police fear for their safety and lives...fear that sometimes leads to brutality as a means of self protection or venting their own anger and hostility from being constantly threatened by depressed, anti-social, unpredictable teens and adults who lack empathy and compassion for others?

    Based on my experiences during the nearly twelve years I provided police services to a Brooklyn, NY community, I concluded the root cause of police fear that leads to police brutality results from constantly dealing with depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable sometimes suicidal teens and adults who lack compassion and empathy for their peaceful neighbors.

    Most cops are able to cope with witnessing daily, physical and emotional devastation inflicted on peaceful people by emotionally abused and neglected victims of early childhood abuse who mature into angry teens and adults.

    However, some officers, much like developing children are irresponsibly conditioned by their immature caregivers to accept a *Street Culture* of violence and anti-social behaviors...sadly, some cops are slowly conditioned to accept the *Street Culture* of violence as well, succumbing to the violence and mayhem they are surrounded by.

    Unfortunately for police, they are charged with protecting peaceful people from abused and neglected children who mature into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable teens and adults resenting their moms and dads for introducing them to a life of pain, hardship and struggle.

    Yet many young, teen and adult victims of abuse are unwilling to blame their abusive or negligent moms and/or dads for depriving them of a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood, so they share their anger and frustrations with their peaceful neighbors or police, in the form of harmful anti-social, often violent activities that cause fear and physical pain among mostly peaceful people living and working in stressed communities.

    If *Baltimore Mom of The Year* Toya Graham had built a smaller family she could more easily provide for, nurture and supervise, would her young teen son be in The Street attempting to cause grave harm to peaceful people attempting to protect Ms. Graham's peaceful neighbors from emotional and physical harm often caused to innocent people by depressed, angry frustrated teens and young men who are peeved for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of struggle and hardship?

    I am not condoning police brutality. Cops are supposed to be a cut above the rest of our citizenry...men and women who respect our laws, impartially enforcing them.

    However, I am offering a point of view that very few wish to address.

    Sheriff David Clarke offers sound advice all Americans, *"Fix the ghetto!"*

    If cops are simply gang members with badges then lets just tell them to stay out of the hoods and let the gang members do the policing. That should work out well, no?
