One of the central themes of my book is that that too many cops today have been conditioned to see the people they serve not as citizens with rights, but as an enemy.
Over the last several days, the popular online police magazine PoliceOne site has been rolling out a series of opinion pieces in response to my book. As you might expect, most of them are critical, although a couple have been thoughtful.
We trainers have spent the past decade trying to ingrain in our students the concept that the American police officer works a battlefield every day he patrols his sector.

Huntington Beach white Riot Jokes go viral
Most of those arrested were from OUTSIDE Huntington Beach. West Covina, Anaheim, Fullerton. Most locals I know avoid the Open because there are so many 909ers that show up...and this is the result. This riot happened because out-of-towners who have no respect for local business got drunk and thought it was okay to destroy other people's property. Local HBers are very good at supporting local businesses and most know each other or know the same people. The Easyrider bike store caters to the very locals who look and dress like those rioting. No way a local would steal from there at the risk of being recognized.
Btw, this story is a parady of what most commentators sound like when commenting on riots in neighborhoods of color. It is just as ridiculous to ask Jesse Jackson about what he can do about black crime as it is to ask Hilary Clinton what to do about white crime. That was the point of the piece dummies.
