I'd think the place to look is well above the police on the street. Watching the various cities is fascinating but it shows something too. Cops
are capable of large scale brutality and they are capable of being very respectful and peaceful. Some difference comes from the culture of the city
and department, but I think the vast majority is coming from what orders each set of police are being given.
I think the majority of cops are working guys like the rest of us that, after enough years, also have a slightly different view of the world and
everyone in it. If they aren't ordered to create new headaches and make life harder for themselves by fighting with protesters, I don't believe the
vast majority will. There are exceptions like a certain commander in New York City we've watched here recently....but those are the few on THAT side
to watch out for regardless. Just my thinking.....
