While turmoil in the United States of America took an upward trend against the backdrop of the murder of a white African police officer, George Floyd, in Minnesota last week, the controversy was exacerbated by two amendments to the US Constitution.
The first amendment is related to the citizen's right to demonstrate and peaceful assembly, and the prohibition of any legislation that impedes the exercise of this right, while the second amendment affirms the citizen's right to purchase weapons.
And the right to demonstrate and gather and the right to bear arms leads to the pessimism of many protesters and police, with the impossibility of a quick end to the protests taking place in various cities and US states.
US President Donald Trump has accused state governors of failure and weakness due to complacency in controlling protesters, and has called on them to stand up and mount sweeping arrests.
running out of patience
A black-skinned protester, during a demonstration in Washington, expressed his fears of the impatience of his peers in the police’s adoption of any real reforms towards the way it dealt with this minority.
"For more than fifty years, we have committed to the peaceful approach adopted by our leader Martin Luther King, but the result has been non-stop violations by white policemen," the young man told Al-Jazeera Net.
"The case of George Floyd is nothing but a chapter in a long series of violations. I fear that black youth will atone with the peaceful teachings of King and adopt the teachings of Malcolm X that advocate violence and perhaps revive the organization of black panthers," said the young man, who declined to be named.
The late Malcolm X called on Americans of African descent to organize, arm and defend themselves, and subsequently formed the "Black Panthers" organization that has been associated with violence and killings against policemen and targeting other government places.
Another protester, called Waze, said, "We have been protesting peacefully for days, and we met the police by throwing tear gas canisters, beating us with clubs and firing some rubber bullets. We have the right to demonstrate without anyone being exposed to us."
Wizz added that he has become visible to the "police state around him" in Washington and surrounding areas in Virginia and Maryland.
The rates of killing Americans of African descent by the police are two and a half times more than that of whites, according to a study by the Rutgers University Criminal Justice Center.
Last year, the police killed 1777 people, according to the data of the Roots Research Foundation. The proportion of people with dark skin reached 31% or 565 people, despite not exceeding 13% of the total population.
In an interview with Al Jazeera Net, the young 21-year-old Tio Davis considered that young American men with dark skin have nothing but violence as an effective means of conveying the level of discontent they feel.
On their concerns, Davis told Al Jazeera Net, "What do you want my friends and I do! We fear the same fate that had previously spent on Rodney King in Los Angeles in 1992, or the fate of Freddy Gray who was killed by police in Ferguson, Missouri three years ago."
The National Police Association - which represents a "lobby" of over a quarter of a million police - is putting great pressure in the media and political circles to preserve the rights of the police and alleviate any punishment imposed on its men, since its foundation in 1978.
"The police are now facing a dangerous situation. They are unable to do their duties and they fear for their lives," society president Mike McCell told Fox News.
He condemned the killing of Mr. Floyd, whom he deems absolutely unjustified, and said, "The police academies have not trained us on this, what the policeman did is unbelievable," but he stressed the need not to jump to the results without a fair professional investigation into what happened.
There is "a small category among the demonstrators that aims only to harm the police and kill them if they can," said Mackel.
And the FBI data indicate that 40% of the police deaths are killed by African American men, and last year 131 police were killed while performing the work.
A policeman speaking to Al Jazeera Net pointed out that "the absence of trust between the two parties is very deep and dates back to decades, and I do not know how trust can be created between the two parties after what is happening and we are seeing it now."
The policeman expressed his concerns and colleagues about the violence of some of the demonstrators, especially that "anyone can buy the deadly and deadly weapons they want legally."
