What are the psychosocial causes of police brutaility in American society?
Is "psychosocial" actually an accepted term? It's a good one. It comes from mutual intolerance between citizens and authority stemming from the colonial era. A perpetual pattern of hostility and rebellion met with resistance and force. Once a revolution, now business as usual.
Part of it is also the inability of law enforcement to recognize that they belong to the same class as the people they go on the offensive against. The global elite benefit the most from lower classes of people being at odds with one another. To overcome any of society's oppressive apparatuses, those protesting need the support of law enforcement and at least some of the military.
Law enforcement officers bring their own baggage to their jobs. Some (not all) are more corrupt that they people they police. I have at least 5 police officers in my family. One expressed concerned about what she saw another officer do; however, she reports it, she may find herself without backup when she calls for it. There should be a system of accountability for law enforcement that will ensure that they do the right thing. There should be more community policing where the officers get to know the people in the community.
