Police Brutality

I used markers, colored pencils, pencil, pen, and cardboard. Police brutality happens all over the world, but many people don’t know about it America. It happens often, I thought that it was an important issue to talk about. My art has a picture of a police man beating a protester. I used red next to the cop, to symbolize their anger and power. In his one hand, he is holding a baton. In the other, he his holding the words, “PEACE OF MIND.” I chose those words because many people lose their peace of mind and feel unsafe with this happening. At the top, I wrote: “TO SERVE AND PROTECT.” I wrote this because this is the goal of police, but it is obviously being contradicted. In the center of the words at the top there is a police badge with blood dripping off of it. This is supposed to represent the innocent people that the police were supposed to be helping, but instead the police beat.

I like your art work because of how the police is beating up the protester.

I respect your statement towards this issue and I do agree with you on it. I am sure that this issue has recurred years and years again in several different governments and nations when power is abused and you are tight, it still goes on even though people do not seem to quite consider how much power is abused.

I think that this picture will help people realize how big of a problem this is.

I like your hexagon because lately in the news police have been taking advantages of their authority and harming innocent people who are standing up for what they believe in.

I liked your project because it really conveys the meaning of brutality from the police.
