S.W.A.T. Season 4: Executive Producer Thomas Addresses The Fans

Published

on

There’s a lot going on around us. Be it political, biological, social and more or less at all the fronts.

To a lot of us out there, this parallel world of TV or Cinema is a superpower to escape reality, even if for a short span of time. The current situation has not spared almost anything including production and release of our favourite movies and TV shows. Evidently, one of our favourites and CBS’s S.W.A.T. is no stranger to it.

A lot of the industry veterans have been verbal about the recent incident involving racism. People have shown solidarity against the recent incident in different ways.

For instance, executive producer Aaron Rahsaan Thomas took to Twitter to address the elephant in the room.

Thomas Said When S.W.A.T. began three years ago on CBS, as writers we examined the intersection of black communities and law enforcement through the eyes of Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson, an African-American cop who has one foot firmly planted in each world. Since then we have continued to tell stories that have explored themes of race and policing in minority communities. We also asked questions about what is required to build trust and bridge these two worlds. We are watching recent events in horror and sadness along with everyone else and will continue to mine the truth about these issues in the writing of our upcoming season as we all work towards a fairer, better system. In the meantime, we encourage protestors to express their frustrations peacefully and implore law enforcement to deescalate conflicts, not exacerbate them, as people work through their understandable anger and grief.

The first thing S.W.A.T. did when the show debuted in November 2017 was to call out the way the black community is policed. Hondo (Shemar Moore) was only promoted to S.W.A.T. team leader in an order to appease the community and try to ease tensions between them and the LAPD after the previous lead, his mentor, shot an unarmed black teenager during a shootout.

Thomas reassured fans that S.W.A.T. will continue to explore those issues, as well as the problems often associated with white officers policing people of colour in Season 4. We believe this is as good a time as any other.

In a piece of more recent news, all four officers accused in LAPD incident are being charged for murder. This gives us hope that the truth will eventually triumph over hate.
