  •  my personal dealings with police (1+ / 0-)

    have mostly been pretty positive. Not a big city, but a city nonetheless, in a very red state. I've witnessed professionalism, patience, and decency firsthand, so I cannot and will not broad brush All Police as bad.

    Big city police in particular often have some serious institutional problems, and the result is rotten policing, including but not limited to brutality, but I still am not willing to demonize the cops en masse.

    I am horrified by what has happened in Oakland and Denver. There is no excuse for it.
