I'll be perfectly clear.

Black lives matter.

The entire law-enforcement machine needs to be completely overhauled. They have shown themselves unfit to "server & protect" because they're only serving & protecting themselves, while indiscriminately hurting & killing others.

"A few bad apples"

Finish it...

"A few bad apples ruin the bunch."

I know several law-enforcement officers and none of them have spoken up, except to support themselves. None have done anything to correct/stop the "few bad apples". They are complicit, ruined.

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830
