Militarization of the Police

8/25/2019
More
Close your eyes and imagine its 6 am and an armored humvee rolling down your street. Attached to its side are police officers outfitted for war. As they reach their target location, they disembark and stack up on the front and rear doors in tight formation. They then throw a flashbang through the window of a young child who has not yet aroused for school. The flashbang breaks the window and severely injures the child. The evening news reports that the child is still in the hospital and will...

Filming the Police

8/11/2019
More
I completely understand that people are skeptical of police intervention and surveillance. Because of video cameras and smartphones this society has become emboldened to video record police activities. I do not have any problem with this whatsoever. I do have a problem with antagonistic behavior from cop watchers who are trying to do something good but going about it the wrong way. Wasting an officer's time is a waste of time and taxpayer resources. Walking around videoing government...

Do You Have What It Takes?

7/29/2019
More
Far too often citizens are complaining about the police. The Police this and the police that. But if you ask these same citizens if they would like to become an officer to protect their community and demonstrate the correct way to enforce the law, then you will get blank stares or relieve a flat out "no". This is a terrible shame that many people can criticize but never volunteer their skills and education in order to protect their communities. This episode is dedicated to asking the...

No, this episode is not in response to the recent statement of the president. It is in response to the plethora of news that this country has been dealing with for some time.

It is also been rumored that officers in other countries also receive longer training. This longer training may account for greater empathy and better tactics when officers in other countries deal with their citizens.
