“The system is so rotten!!! Where do we begin? How do we begin? Sigh. How do you just shoot to kill people and aim to take lives because you’re capable of it? Can the police stop giving guns to policemen who will not be held accountable? Who doesn’t have emotional training? Who aren’t constantly tested and evaluated? Are we animals? Are not all tired of the bad news. We’re due to some good news!”
