4. It is possible. What it requires is electing people to

your local city council and county board who will do that. Usually, those elections are in odd-numbered years in most places.

Nobody votes in those elections, though. Voter turnout is dismally low. We can change that by turning out to vote and bringing people who think the same out to vote. Until that happens, though, change is unlikely in how law enforcement behaves. That takes change from the top, and if we don't bother to elect people who will make the changes, they won't happen.

Ask yourself this: Did I vote in the last city council, county board, and Sheriff's election? If the answer is that you did not, that's something you can correct next time.
