Watch: Weston McKennie and U.S. stars past and present say 'Enough is enough' to police brutality

U.S. national team midfielder Weston McKennie published a video in which he mixed footage of police officers using force against black people with clips of players saying: "Enough is enough."

They included contemporaries like Tyler Adams, Christian Pulisic, Tim Weah, Zack Steffen and Mallory Pugh as well as older players like Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey and DaMarcus Beasley.

    I am all ears, WM. Please propse your policy solutions that will resolve this situation. Most of what I've heard so far has been dissatisfaction with the status quo, and desire for change. But nothing solid, no prescriptions to relieve the perceived evils other than Defund the Police which seems a complete non-starter in a civilized society. But what do you replace it with, seriously, in cites with high crime and homicide rates? I guess we'll find out in LA, where their mayor has already headed down that path.
    I've seen teams in other countries taking a knee before the start of matches, indicating solidarity with protesters--fair enough. Protesting has a long and storied history in many countries. But in those countries they're not playing their national anthem, not raising the national flag. The knee there is not linked to the country the way it is in the US. And so maybe we should stop those practices as the moment is laden with more baggage than we as citizens are able to handle.
    But what it seems to me is these teams/clubs/leagues are more relieved these protests, which could just as readily occur on their doorsteps, are happening far away and don't have immediate consequences for them. Yes, by all means, no more police brutality on citizens. Now what?
