Since the highly publicized deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, communities have grappled with how best to hold police officers who commit misconduct accountable and prevent them from engaging in future misconduct. In addition to internal administrative discipline by police departments, police officers can be held accountable for misconduct through criminal liability, civil liability and decertification.

Hours after lashing out at Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) the day after she said on national TV that he could be facing multiple criminal charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6th, Donald Trump was back on his Truth Social account and making jokes about starting another insurrection.
On Independence Day.
Moving on from his earlier social media post where he raged, “Warmongering and despicable human being Liz Cheney, who is hated by the great people of Wyoming (down 35!), keeps saying, over and over again, that HER Fake Unselect Committee may recommend CRIMINAL CHARGES against a President of the United States who got more votes than any sitting President in history,” the former president complained he and his supporters are not being treated fairly.
"We don’t have a fair system of 'Justice' in this Country anymore. The way they are treating me & my supporters, compared to what happens to those 'on the other side,' is like day & night," he wrote.
He then added, "It has been this way for a long time, but never like it is today! All semblance of a 'FAIR & BALANCED' Media to look over, study, and report on what is going on in our Country is GONE! Fight on, America, Fight On! (Oh, I’m sorry. By using the word FIGHT, they will say I am inciting an Insurrection. Apologies!)."

Black employees sue Tesla over racist and physical abuse at factory: ‘Suck it up — this happens all the time’
More than a dozen Black employees sued Tesla for creating a "racially hostile work environment" at its automobile factories.
The lawsuit filed June 30 in California court by 15 current and former employees accused Tesla of overlooking Black workers for promotions, allowing employees to racial slurs without punishment, and failing to remove racist graffiti -- including swastikas and the letters "KKK" -- from bathrooms, reported Business Insider.
One worker said he was tackled by another employee on the job, and his supervisor failed to take action, saying, "Suck it up and be a man, this happens here all the time."
The same man said he was later harassed by a coworker who threw metal bolts at him, and his supervisor again took no action when he reported the abuse.
Tesla has been hit with racial discrimination lawsuits in the past, including 46 alleging sexual and racial harassment at its Fremont factory in the last five years.
