    The militarization of our public servants (i.e.- our police forces) should be the first thing to go! I'm sick of hearing police refer to the citizens of their communities as civilians. It's the "Us versus Them" mentality that has helped to create police forces who think they can beat, maim, and kill with impunity.

    People in every community should be raising their voices every time they are confronted with this mindset. Every instance should be made as public as possible, if only to shame the PDs. Publicizing their brutality every time is one of the only options we have at this point, and is known to have an effect.

    Life... is like a grapefruit. It's orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast. -Douglas Adams
