Now a days, there are many incidents that police officer firing at innocent civilian when the civilian show no threat to police officer. This issue is getting more serious especially in the central United States. People who gets shoot is mostly black people. we all know that not all of the black people possess a gun. How sad that police officer just shoot innocent black people when they follow what the police officers' order. I strongly want to argue that because of a few criminal why the other innocent people has to suffer from shooting. I believe this issue is not only police fault but also the United States laws. Gun control debate has been going on so many years in this country. However, I see no progression or certain act for the gun control. Ever since British migrated to America, having a gun to protect themselves had been settled down so many people disagree not having a gun. But, In my humble opinion, there one ultimate solution to solve this but I think majority of the white U.S citizen won't agree with it. I know it is hard to remove gun from the people who already have gun for so many years but to save innocent people in the U.S. Or, if they consider all the citizens in the states as one why they can't do it?. In my country, South Korea, we don't have any cases for police officer shoots civilian or criminal. This is because we are not allowed or strictly prohibited to possess a gun. Even the acute criminal has no gun, so police man will never worry about getting shoot by criminals. I hope that the United States will find inner peace in all the states.
