“The officers here were trying to assert control over Mr. Nichols, not defending themselves” — a good look at the mindset that turns traffic stops into civilian fatalities. And also how to change things: end random traffic stops.
It’s telling that Rep. Jim Jordan claims there’s no solution: “I don’t know that there’s any law that can stop that evil. What strikes me is just the lack of respect for human life. So, I don’t know that any law or any training or any reform is going to change.”
In short, it’s not an issue for white people, let alone well-off white people like himself, so he doesn’t care.
