The Free Thought Project has published a video in which a brave police officer has taken the risk of publicly condemning the series of brutalities citizens have suffered, and are still suffering, at the hands of his fellow police officers in recent times in the United States.
The officer is said to come from the state of Georgia and has been identified as Billy Ray Fields. He took a strong stance against the rampant police abuse of power nowadays.
The video was originally posted on Mediatakeout and has since gone viral on many social media platforms. In the video, Officer Fields pointed out that he has taken a huge risk in speaking against his ‘bad colleagues’ because he felt their actions are unacceptable and they are likely to destroy America’s future.
“When I became a cop, I took an oath knowing what I would face in these streets … This young generation they’re our future and some of them don’t have a clue nor a plan. So it’s not only my job to uphold the law, but to show, guide and lead them in the right direction.”
Fields also stated that he supports the police accountability movement by activists, in order to hold bad cops accountable for their actions. He said due to the behavior of his bad colleagues, people often tell him that, “it’s a bad time to be a cop,” to which he replies them that now is a, “perfect time to be a cop.”
