  •  Yeah, it seems quite random (0+ / 0-)

    The random caps don't bother me nearly as much as the poor communication.  The writing is disjointed and makes no clear point.  We learn only that the writer has PTSD or some other emotional problem, that his home was attacked (no details offered), and he was falsely arrested.

    Is he making a complaint against the police force?  It is not clear.  Did he observe cops breaking the law?  He doesn't say.  Has he been punished for trying to do the right thing.  We don't know.  The writer says everything has been documented, but doesn't provide any documentation: if you were falsely arrested, show us the police report and point out the problems.

    The take home message for me from this piece was the writer is upset and mistrustful.  Rather than an insider's indictment of law enforcement, this piece simply makes the writer look bad.

    •  It is written in report speak (0+ / 0-)

      That is why it is disjointed.

      •  Does it communicate to you? (0+ / 0-)

        Again, I don't see any allegations or indictments against any one person or specific agency in this piece.

        I would expect in a report to have specific details: what, who, how, and where.  No such details are in this "report".  It looks entirely subjective to me; not an objective "report" at all.

        I would be interested in knowing what exactly you or anyone else thinks this "report" is reporting.
