“All lives matter, we know that… we knew that when we became people instead of property” 

 

“When you say someone's name, you acknowledge that being, you acknowledge their presence... call these people by their full government name because you need to know that you took away someone's mother, son, father, daughter” 

 

“It's very clear cut, how you are supposed to move through your use of force model, from communication tactics, to actual use of force”
