Wedging Police Culture

I don't like the way much of the anti-police militarization movement is going. I see police militarization as being a serious threat to the american way of life. The police are not an army and should not have military attitudes. The time to fix that is before the batons and stun guns come out. It's certainly time before the knock on the door happens.

Who are your police? What forces could conceivably execute that knock on the door and how many of them are honorable peace officers? How many of them have poor impulse control and are a disgrace to their uniform? And how many of them mean well but really haven't thought through the issues? These are the sorts of questions we should be asking but we don't seem to be doing it.

Oh well, one more report in the queue for Citizen Intelligence.
