Not all, but some.

Dropping this draft from a couple months ago.

We know that it is not all police officers. Many officers enter their careers anxious to help heal the hurt, to fight injustice, to do what they can to be the peacemakers. 

We know that.

We know "not all men", but we also know "yes, all women". 
We hear your "All lives matter" but until "black lives matter" as much, the voices are echoes in an empty hall. 

You try to placate with your wide generalizations, but in doing so, you further marginalize the harsh realities that exist. No life is without struggle, but some lives face greater struggles because they are not seen beyond the color of their skin, or their sex, or their sexual orientation, or their job, the list goes on.
