Stopping cops from shooting innocent motorists may mean taking minor traffic stops away from cops

CBS News says this:

A growing number of cities are no longer enforcing minor traffic stops in an effort to de-escalate tensions between the police and civilians. Adriana Diaz speaks with local authorities in Lansing, Michigan, one of the cities where this new approach was adopted.

What they really mean is this:

Exasperated government officials in some cities are realizing that with their police forces interspersed with white supremacists, and police unions resisting any change that might save lives, the best course of action might be preventing their officers from making any minor traffic stops during which unarmed innocent black and brown people are far more likely to be killed in a hail of gunfire after being pulled over for having air freshener hanging from their rear view mirror.

There. Fixed it.
