That we continue to exonerate people who are killing others makes my head spin. However, the reality is, we should all (and by "all," I mean all white people) be held accountable for the police shootings that have occurred. We. Are. Guilty. How?
Three officers in Baltimore walked in the Gray case. Whether there will be any charges against the Baton Rouge officers involved in the Sterling and Castile slayings is problematic at best. This tells much as to why cops repeatedly walk free in dubious deadly force cases.
The number of uniformed officers in the mid-Atlantic city fell 6.1 percent last year and has shrunk by even more in the first half of this year.
While Baltimore waits for officers to stand trial in the Gray case, Allen Bullock is behind bars for damaging two police cars.
In the months following the unrest, homicides and shootings increased while arrests plummeted. The year ended with 344 homicides, the highest per capita rate in the city's history. The majority of the victims were young black men. Has anything changed ?

Caesar Goodson is the second of six officers scheduled for trial.
