Day 9: I sound like a broken record but what I’m working on with this connection on the takeaway is syncing up so much stuff. Having the thoracic spine being much more involved just naturally gets my hips moving more too. Fixing any early extension has gone on the back burner while I work on remedying the backswing. I think I’m correct in prioritizing this.
Let's be clear about something: white people are killed by police officers, too:
• People shot to death by U.S. police, by race 2020 | Statista
Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems to only be increasing, with a total 506 civilians having been shot, 105 of whom were Black, as of June 30, 2020.
That's not what this is about, because things can be seen (and often are) disproportionate. Which you hint at, but somewhat poorly IMO.
I think training can be important. Let's train police officers to de-escalate instead of escalating. To realize when a suspect is rendered unable to resist and to get up off his neck. To let junior officers do what is right without the macho bullshit culture. Things like that can all be trained.
