I have stood by and watched as incidents like this increase. In the past Police took more of a servant role and I guess it wasn't as violent a world
back then but today they act like soldiers in a war zone.
As the coldness of the world increases and the dangers multiply, so will our police become more violent. I am waiting for the days coming when they,
like some of the fire departments already, only answer calls to homes that pay into their retirement fund.
The time is long past when a governor or a mayor could sit down with the Police chief and say, your force needs some sensitivity training, the people
are complaining. There was a time when the Police force was answerable to the people, if only indirectly. The right of the people to question the
Police, even hold them accountable - has vanished. Our rights have been stripped, buried in a bunch of "acts" added since then in the interest of
Forefathers were concerned with individual rights and National security when they drew up the Constitutional protections. Setting them aside to
exercise brutality, unnecessary violence, spying or harassment is the kind of overreach those protections were in place to prevent.
