working for the public




"You don't put on much of a front, do you?"


~~  "There isn't much money in this business, if you're honest."





The Big Sleep


_____________________________


An article on The American Conservative website entitled "Seven Reasons Police Brutality Is Systemic, Not Anecdotal" lays out this list:


1.  Many departments don't provide adequate training in nonviolent solutions.


2.  Standards for what constitutes brutality vary widely.


3.  Consequences for misconduct are minimal.


4.  Settlements are shifted to taxpayers.


5.  Minorities are unfairly targeted.


6.  Police are increasingly militarized.


7.  Police themselves say misconduct is remarkably widespread.
