During times the people speak up and protest it is clear to see the unfair, unjust actions by cops and legal office to place those protesting in jail where they are held on bail.
During this current period of time in history with COVID it is even more essential that we get our fellow freedom fighters out of these jails where the risk of infection is at an extreme high.
COVID already impacts the Black community more than any other, which is an important fact to remember. Of course, no one who is protesting against racism or for the accountability of violent police, murderers (police) and the like also do not deserve to be subjected either. That the Black community is being hit harder, however, is something to think about as we go forward.
