THE GROWING ANTI-POLICE BRUTALITY MOVEMENT

The anti-police brutality movement is here.  It’s not going anywhere.  And as long as militarized police officers across the United States continue to brutalize and murder people with impunity, this powerful rising force will continue to grow and become stronger.

For years, I’ve been photographing anti-police brutality marches and rallies, and have witnessed the evolution of this movement.  When I first started taking pictures, you wouldn’t see as many children, housewives, and grandmothers at these events as you do today.  And you especially wouldn’t see these people holding signs that said, “…BLOOD is on your hands”, “I hate the police…”,  or “Police: It’s a Gang”.

Nowadays though, it’s a different story.  People who once supported police, no longer do, and it’s the police officers themselves who are responsible for this expanding backlash.

With the power of the internet and its ability to educate and open eyes, the American people are really starting to see how dangerous police officers are to them and their families.  For instance, six of them can murder your son on camera and get away with it.

The following photos were taken at a “Justice For Kelly  Thomas” rally that took place in Fullerton, CA, on January 18, 2014.
