Who

People of color and the police.

What

People are losing trust in the police because they're racial profiling people of color and treating them unjustly.

When

This is a current issue that is happening right now.

Where

In cities or towns such as Seattle, New Orleans, Portland, Newark, Albuquerque, and others.

Why

Because there are no laws prohibiting racial profiling by law enforcement in many states as well as little oversight of police officers

How

We need to make DEFINITIVE anti-profiling laws and policies, train officers to eliminate bias, and develop accountablility systems.

Conclusion:

With these efforts, police departments across the country can rebuild public trust and ensure that policing methods reinforce rather than undermine our democratic values."

The type of conclusion the author used is a point forward conclusion.

My Conclusion:

Although racial profiling is a problem, we can overcome it by making anti-profiling laws and policies, train officers to eliminate bias, and develop accountablility systems, and overtime this problem will something of the past.

The type of conclusion I used is a pleasant aftertaste conclusion.
