 Gun control has been the cause of the acclamation malefactions in the United States and has taken an immense toll on police brutality. Police brutailty dates back “From the Great Railroad Strike of 1877, to the Pullman Strike of 1894, the Lawrence textile strike of 1912, the Ludlow massacre of 1914, the Steel strike of 1919, and the Hanapepe massacre of 1924, the police would brutally beat striking laborers.” Over the pass few years it has been a controversial argument that went from labor workers to racial profiling.
Police today were kenned to be a slave patrol in the year 1704, their obligations were to keep slaves from absquatulating. However, police brutality has been engendered by racial profiling and dispensable force used against minorities from the original state of slave patrol. In the recent years, the number of African-American being shot by white police has incremented. Despite the peaceful protest, marches and hashtags that has been used to be aurally perceived, it is a difficult concept to define because police hold a consequential role in this society and are authorized to use deadly  force against U.S citizens in the exercise of their jobs.
Before officaially becoming a police officers they say a pledge that states, “On my honor, I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character, or the public trust. I will always have the courage    to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always uphold the Constitution, the community, and the agency I serve, so help me God.”
Given the certain circumstances, “young black men were nine times more likely than any other American to be killed by police officers in 2015, according to the findings of a Guardian study that recorded a final tally of 1,134 deaths at the hands of law enforcement officers that year.” Most of these police officers did not uphold the same consequences an american citizen would face. This leads people to belive that police are more superior to citizens and are protected by the governemnt.
In order to decrease police brutality, Officers need to have up to date training regulations and mandatory training renewals. There is no exact solution to solve this on going issue, but there needs to be a plausible and achievable plan that will drastically reduce police brutalization everywhere. Offering more solutions to minimize brutality such as, officers never being sanctioned to mute and/or turn off body cameras as well as them being customarily tested for Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) evrey so often is a start.
Another way of decreasing police brutality would be increasing womenin the field. Evidence shows that their appernceis less dangerous and they have an advantage in dangerious situations (Sherman,1975). Female officers are less authoritan in their approach to policing, less physical and more effective communicators. They are also better calming down a violet confrontations before it turns deadly and there acceptance of women officers seem to be better embraced by the public. Unfortuanelty only 6.5% of state police  haave women in there agenciess which is why the number of women officers should increase.
