Lawyer repeatedly mistaken for a defendant calls for compulsory anti-racism training

some B.S. about U.S. police using plates the same isn't actually the same

The U.S. has a high violence rate in general. You can thank your stars that you don't live in the U.S. I suppose but the degree to which police violence is above some arbitrary first world country you compare it to is actually lower than would be expected given the baseline rate of violence for the U.S. population at large.

attend university for four years

"Sorry mate" but This is not the problem with American policing. I have a criminal justice degree (among others). Such a degree does not significantly improve the way in which a police officer functions. Other countries requiring a four year degree is just education creep as more people with degrees seek employment. Either way, quite a few departments require a degree in the U.S. and there is no data to suggest that those positions are less prone to violence than any others. Something like half of U.S. police have at least a two year degree, and most of that number have a 4 year degree. Quite frankly, you have no idea what you're talking about.

As you can see

I do not see. Regardless of what U.S. police are doing, pretending that there is some kind of nefariousness to routine policing activities does not make them a civil rights violation or in any way ethically wrong for the police to engage in. The usage of a license plate is not inherently wrong, and any wrong that follows thusly is only wrong by it's own merits. Stop conflating any policing activity with bad policing, it's childish and intellectually dishonest.
