  1. Let us not to forget that police brutality is a universal problem and it can only thrive when allowed by their leadership. Hold those leaders accountable. If the leaders don’t insist on rigid training and education of all law enforcement they are not doing their jobs. Have a peaceful protest that emphasise that police brutality will not be tolerated.
