These plans didn’t come from nowhere. Due to the recent deaths of black-skinned men in the US, Obama will prohibit the usage of military arms and equipment, such as vehicles with the anti-explosive cover. As for the vehicles that are resistive to mines and ambushes, police departments will have to provide the legitimateness of their use to continue exploiting them. Obama will reveal the details of the plan in his future visit to Camden, New Jersey.
The question of authority abuses became sharpened after the fatal deaths of black-skinned civilians during protests between them and the police that took place in the US, a while ago. Also protestants in Ferguson claimed that police used excessive force against them that lead to injuries.
Protests also showed that America has serious problems with race. In the recent research, about 30% of the questioned people said that America has more racism issues than it is willing to admit.
After the protests in the number of the US cities, Obama gave more attention to the race question in his speeches that shows that the US authorities know about the problems and are being set firmly to solve the race question once and for all.
