Watching the events of the last week made most Americans realize we have a policing problem. Seeing a 75-year-old man pushed down and crack his head for just standing there was appalling. Worse, when one officer attempted to kneel down and help him, another pulled that officer up and forced him to just keep walking. If you haven’t seen that yet, here you go:
Saying the officers were unprofessional is like saying that Donald Trump is just grumpy. We are not vetting the people we let into the police departments across America. Hey, it’s a tough, sometimes thankless job, but if you are not equipped to handle that, get out.
Serious changes need to be made in who we hire and how we train police officers if America is ever to be great Again. Otherwise, we are just one more ‘shit hole country.’
