Oliver used the examples to say the police’s shirking of masks mandates “sums up” the core difficulty with American regulation enforcement.

“The constant refrain we hear from cops every time they kill an unarmed, Black person is, ‘They should have complied with commands,’” Oliver mentioned. “Because as long as you comply, things will supposedly go well. But that only seems to work one way. Because when officers are asked to follow simple rules or face consequences, a not insignificant amount of them flip their s–t.”

“If an officer wants to quit over this, f–king let them,” Oliver continued. “Let the individuals who clearly don’t care about public safety stop being in charge of public safety. It is really that simple.”
