What do we expect from the police?

We hire the police to serve and protect. What do want them to do? The latest police shooting in LA puts the police front and center in the midst of controversy. The police say the man “African” was reaching for one of the policeman’s weapon, and the police killed him. Who is at fault here? We also have to ask when did it become acceptable to fight with the police? Policeman want to go home at the end of the day and they will subdue any threat to that outcome Does this mean every time a policeman shoots he is justified? No, but we have to look at the facts of each case before we indict either party.

They are not funny on any level. They are frightening and they show no mercy. Have we become de-sensitized to human suffering? Is everything fodder for humor? How do you think the family of James Foley took the joke? Do you think they were doubled over with laughter? Who is in the room when these ideas are pitched? Does anyone ever say no? Well maybe it’s time to hire that guy-Mr. No.
