Amid the decision in the case involving Breonna Taylor, many athletes have shared their disappointment in the verdict and have spoken out on racial injustice. Myles Garrett, the Pro Bowl defensive end for the Cleveland Browns, shared that something needs to be done about the lack of accountability for police officers.
“I don’t see how you can’t hold these guys accountable for the wrongdoing with how they handled that situation,” Garrett said, via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. “Am I a police officer? No. I always say I hold these guys in high regard because they do a job that most of us could not, but just like in our line of work [in the NFL], they can either do the job in strenuous situations or not able to do it with the best of them.
