I would only like to add one thing.
Officers getting shot...yeah, okay...I'm still waiting for the punchline.
No, it's not.
What's tragic is when the police (supposed to protect the public) abuse that trust with the thin blue line.
What's tragic is when they taser children.
What's tragic is when they callously execute the mentally disabled.
What's tragic is when steal from the public.
What's tragic is when they allow families to be brutalized.
What's tragic is when they shoot 20 innocent people trying to kill one criminal.
What's NOT tragic is when police are shot or killed in the line of duty because that's their job description.
To go out with weapons and a costume that lets them pretend the law does not apply to them and rough house with other armed (or unarmed) individuals
who feel similarly entitled but don't have the "costume" to legitimize their crimes, getting injured or killed is just the inevitable result.
What else did you expect?
THAT'S what they're paid for.
This isn't 21 Jump Street.
