  •  Yes, cops can do great things (9+ / 0-)

    but too many times you read about unjustified shootings, IMO. Our police have become militarized, they look and act like Special Forces in some instances.

    I wasn't there in this case and don't want to say one way or the other but in general I see too many cop shootings that involve "I thought I was a gun".

    I'm not anti-cop. My father was one, he went from beat cop to chief of detectives in his LA area city. I have respect for what cops go through, but we have too much of an "us vs them" thing going on now.

    And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County Down by the Green River where Paradise lay. Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away. John Prine
