The links below were created on June 15th, 2015. Needless to say since then there has been a torrent of additional police brutality and a host of new and awful videos, so if you’re wondering why a particularly horrible failure of justice is missing from the links, that could be why.

I once assumed we’d all agree
that unarmed children shouldn’t be
shot down without warning on the street

but now it seems that I was wrong
some find a way to blame it on
the victim whose life is incomplete

I guess we just see differently
the police and me
I guess we don’t see eye to eye
the police and I

just as long as they’re afraid
they can gun you down today
and never face a trial or a court

anytime and anywhere
they beat a man cuffed to a hospital chair
and still wrote him up as a suspect in their report

I guess we just see differently
the police and me
I guess we don’t see eye to eye
the police and I

don’t you call the boys in blue
you never know what they will do

if anyone is feeling fear
why is it the people here
with guns and helmets vests and armored cars

who knock unarmed civilians down
and shoot them lying on the ground
but never get arrested or get charged

I guess we just see differently
the police and me
I guess we don’t see eye to eye
the police and I
