Cleveland police officer Nakia Jones made a statement with the video she recently posted on Facebook denouncing police brutality. In the start of the video, Jones explains that she became a police officer specifically so she could help communities of color. By minute 3:47, she criticizes police officers who enter these communities without offering them the respect they deserve:
“If you’re afraid to go and talk to an African American female or a male, or a Mexican male or female because they’re not white like you, take the uniform off! You have no business being a police officer, because there’s many of us that would give our life for anybody!”
