Police violence and tension between police officers and black people is not a new topic in the world. It is something that has been going on for a long time and everybody talks about, know about it but is there anybody out there who is doing something about it? Like the 9th of August 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri where policemen were firing their weapons and the riots led to an awful death of the young boy, named Michael Brown.

America has continued to isolate poor black people in economically depressed neighborhoods under increasingly oppressive police tactics that breed distrust and hostility.” With him saying it like that, it makes you wonder why.
Why are these people placed in depressed neighborhoods? It is crystal clear that a treatment like this leads to only awful things. A second reason for the violence and the hate between withes and blacks is the unbelievable and unnecessary “The broken window theory”, promulgated by James Q. Wilson...
