NEW AMERICAN COP On NEWSWEEK MAG!!!


2016_08_19_Cover_1800 × 2400
POLICE OFFICERS across the USA are better trained, better educated, better technologically equipped, and; the force is much more diverse than the police force of the predecessors, yet; they have never been more SCARED, or; felt more DESPISED than any other generation of Police Officers!!!

On Wednesday, July 6, 2016, WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS (Ohio) POLICE Officer wNAKIA JONES was awakened by her teenage son who was on the verge of tears.

Just the day before, a video had been nationally released that showed two BATON ROUGE (Louisiana) POLICE OFFICERS tacking and pinning young BLACK Baton Rouge-resident ALTON STERLING to the ground, and then shooting him to death.

Officer NAKIA JONES remembers her son saying;
 “Did you see the shooting? Mom, not only am I afraid of being shot by another black male; do I also have to be afraid of somebody who wears the same uniform as you do?”
NAKIA JONES is the FIRST BLACK WOMAN to serve on the police force in her town. Her husband is also a cop. Together they have six children - four boys and two girls.

She knows that the next young black man killed by police could be one of her sons. 
As she watched the Sterling video, she felt torn in a way that she hadn’t before,
despite similar incidents. Other police killings seemed justified, she had told her children, but
this one made her feel different.
Nakia Jones said she felt;
as if she had “half of my body in a uniform and half of my body in civilian clothes.”
She recorded a video on FACEBOOK LIVE (view video below);
“How dare you stand next to me in the same uniform and murder somebody!
 Her voice growing louder as she lambasted racist cops. Her eyes filled with tears as she asked people to support good police officers and take a stand against the bad ones.

The video now has 8 million views.

The next few days were vert difficult. During a traffic stop in FALCON HEIGHTS, MN, a police officer shot and killed BLACK local resident PHILANDER CASTILE while his fiancee and their young daughter were both inside the car with him.

Then a lone gunman shot and killed five DALLAS (Texas) POLICE OFFICERS, and another lone gunman shot and killed three BATON ROUGE POLICE OFFICERS.

Nakia Jones said;
“It’s almost like a nightmare. My heart goes out to the families of Alton Sterling and the other man that was killed…. But then, at the same token, these are my brothers and sisters in blue. Now they're families have lost [loved ones]. It feels like I’m torn on both sides.”
The tension between police and citizens has not been this high since the 1960s and ’70s.
Many Americans feel the country’s 18,000 police departments need major reform.
Since FERGUSON POLICE Officer fatally shot unarmed 18-year-old FERGUSON-resident
 MICHAEL BROWN Jr. in 2014, AMERICAN POLICE OFFICERS have killed nearly
3,000 people.

On the other side of the political coin, pundits are using the murders of the police officers in
Baton Rouge and Dallas to decry that there is a "WAR On COPS".

It really comes as no surprise that there is a decline in applicants for the job of Police Officer.

MILWAUKEE (Wisconsin) POLICE Chief EDWARD FLYNN said;
“We’re hiring idealistic young men and women who want to protect the good peoplfrom the bad people. Right now, they are being portrayed as faceless others. Automatons. Star Wars stormtroopers.”
NEWSWEEK Journalist MAX KUTNER goes behind the shield to get a peek at
THE NEW AMERICAN COP.

POLICE Officer NAKIA JONES.
