The central intent of policing is to surveil, terrorize, capture, and kill marginalized populations, specifically Black folks. … When the world witnessed the police choke Eric Garner to death as he gasped “I can’t breathe” — that is an act of terror. When a cop car pulled up to Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy, and the cop shot him in less than two seconds — that is an act of terror. When police broke down 92-year-old Kathryn Johnston’s front door, unloaded 39 rounds, and left five bullets buried in her body — that is an act of terror. We recognize it as anti-Black violence and control while law enforcement and the injustice system see it as essential to the very nature of the job.
