Signs that perceptions and law
systems need to change
BY KERRY RICHMOND, PH.D.
ver the past year, the Lycoming College
community has watched with sadness and
frustration as continued incidents of police
brutality occurred across the country. We listened
to chants of “black lives matter,” “hands up don’t
shoot” and “enough is enough” from individuals
who went to the streets to protest aggressive
police tactics and racial profiling after highly
publicized incidents in Ferguson, Missouri, New
York City and Charleston, South Carolina.
