#OfficerNakiaJones: Ohio Police Officer Addresses Deputy Involved in Fatal Shooting of Alton Sterlin
#OfficerNakiaJones "I'm here because I wanted to make a difference. But how dare you stand next to me in the same uniform and murder somebody? How dare you," Jones said in the live Facebook video Wednesday.
Jones says during the video:
It bothers me when I hear people say, ‘Y’all police officers this, y’all police officers that. They put us in this negative category when I’m saying to myself, ‘I’m not that type of police officer.’
I know officers that are like me that would give their life for other people. So I’m looking at it, and it tore me up because I got to see what you all see. If I wasn’t a police officer and I wasn’t on the inside, I would be saying, ‘Look at this racist stuff. Look at this.’
And it hurt me.
If you are white and you’re working in a black community and you are racist, you need to be ashamed of yourself. You stood up there and took an oath.
If this is not where you want to work, then you need to take your behind somewhere else.
Put these guns down because we’re killing each other. And the reason why all this racist stuff keeps going on is because we’re divided. We’re killing each other, not standing together.
