This country has lost their mind. No one takes responsibility for their own actions and the powers that be let them get away with it. That include both officers and citizens. No one is immune. When an officer gets in trouble for doing his job. Its wrong. When a citizen dies at the hand of a power hunger officer, that is also wrong. Need to look at each case on an individual basis and not assume the cop is always wrong. How can they do their job in these conditions?
Dear Lord, On this day, please wrap your arm around my shoulder and keep your hand over my mouth.  Amen

It's tough.  There are bad cops and they need to be held responsible for their actions.  But the majority of them are good.  I watched a video of some members of the New York police unions speaking out after the first series of protests that turned into riots.  They told some telling statistics.

It's a funny thing. When I see a LEO, I assume they are "good" until they do something to indicate otherwise. When I see a person of any color, I assume decent person, until I have reason to think otherwise. I'm not saying I like everyone I meet, I don't. And there are people I take an instant dislike to. But I'm not going to shoot then or pelt then with rocks just because I don't like therm.
My friends here are some of the kindest on earth :kissies:
