3. I alternate between being so sad I cry

to so pissed off, I'm shaking inside to so inspired that I'll make phone calls and urge our city commissioners to urge the city manager to start a citizen review board.

Our small city now has a citizen review board (I don't actually live in the city, so I couldn't be asked), but it turns out that they merely give a report to the city police chief. The woman I gave info to so she'd start it is so pissed that they only did that to shut her up that we may be able to change that.

I have a daughter in law enforcement and a son in prison (political prisoner of the war on drugs...a man so self-medicating after his father's suicide...well, you get the picture) that I sometimes can joke about how well balanced I am! This morning, the tears just won't stop flowing thinking of the 7 yr old, her family.

When, how will this madness end?

4. I'm gonna weigh in on how this might be avoided...

In fact, I'm pretty sure I might have posted my feelings about local police forces before, but this is how I evaluate this disastrous outcome of "policing".

1) There likely was no "best practice" training guidelines in use for that particular police force to have produced THAT outcome.

2) Any such inept police training starts with said police force's CHIEF.

I base this on my personal close ties with local police force training as a member of municipal council for 5 years. In that world, which was an eye opener, I'd still say that you have good police, and THEN… you have a bunch of thugs that chose the wrong profession. Some of them go unchecked on purpose, due to loyalties leading them all to a nice pension that no own will question. Some of them make it to the administrative level by ass kissing, and don't CARE that the chain of command under them protect the public. Some of them tried in vain to change policing methods. In fact, due to the day to day inability to handle the emotional impact of policing, all of them understand how police can developed into one of these ticking bombs, who should be ripped from the force, thrown in jail and have their pensions taken away forever because they have become the criminal element of the worse kind.

Certainly, it takes leadership and balls to change. Don't think for one moment that this part is easy, as it's become so corrupt in some places, even the attorney generals won't step over some lines.

All leadership is local. If citizen groups don't start demanding this at the local level, you can forget about this kind of policing to become anything but worse. So, I'm all for that group.

Now… who's gonna be the first citizen to get that one off to a good start?

5. of course

 

the 'protect and serve' people are sacrosanct. No consequence for any type of injustice on their part. Being tools of the 1%. Nothing more can be expected.
