Merced youth weigh in: #BlackLivesMatter and police brutality

Give voice to the oppressed. Improve police training so that deescalation trumps violence. Stop sensationalizing violence. Youth from age 14 to 22 weigh in on what they believe must be done to address police brutality and promote a peaceful society. “(Police) are making it seem as if it is them versus us. We are not the enemy, and they shouldn’t be ours.” Read the story at We’Ced.
