The really sad part is, I am, by far, more afraid of the police than any home invasion, robbery, etc and incidents such as this is the reason. They do
not see us as innocent until proven guilty anymore, they just see degrees of guilty.
It's a vicious circle. The cops know they are feared and hated, so they respond to any perceived threat with force,
usually far too much. Then, that is just more reason for us to fear and hate them. Dressing like a storm trooper and kicking down doors for small
offences doesn't help either. I am almost 50 and can remember when the cops would come by the local tavern for lunch and no one would think anything
of it because they had the best burgers in town. No one thought they were drinking on the job, just gettin' a cheeseburger and fries, talking to
people. Now, they separate themselves from us and treat us like inferiors. People getting shot was a big story on the news, Now, it's just another
day in the neighborhood. Can you say "Trigger Happy"? I knew you could.
