My two cents:
One of my least favorite words "metrics". Stats are good to use when coming up with a solution to fix a problem but we always go too far. Be it for
corporate America or fighting crime. We have become too analytical and forget the most important resource in running a business and policing a
community - People
We tend leave out the human factor when formulating. I grouped corporate America and fighting crime together because both have lost touch with what
it is all about.
Publicly traded companies are looking to grow shareholders at all costs. They cut back on employee benefits and come up with out of touch marketing
schemes to move product. They have become so big it is difficult to go anywhere else to purchase. Small mom and pop businesses are failing everyday.
Happy employees and happy customers grow a business. Most companies started out years ago knowing this but it all ran amuck.
Good men and women police officers are arresting people on trumped up charges in hopes something will stick in order to incarcerate. I believe most
police officers are decent people but according to Mr Woods they must meet the numbers to show they are doing their job. I am strongly against
militant action against Police. Change comes from discussing the problem with each other and voting for the right people to change the laws. The
police want to protect and serve and will change according to their orders.
Is it all really about money? Maybe a good deal of it. I think it is a lot about leaving the human factor out of the loop.
Too bad things have to get so bad before it gets better. Let's hope for the best in the coming years but we should not forget to do our part.
