It is so frightening to me that police officers, who are not required to possess any type of academic degree, are handed loaded weapons and given the power to act as judge, jury, and executioner at their discretion. How many questionable instances of excessive use of force by a police officer have to come to light before we as a nation begin to require that law enforcement officials have been provided adequate training in crisis management and more than a few community college hours of criminal justice 101? Any fool can get their hands on a loaded weapon, but there seems to be only one population of fools that are not held accountable for what they do with those loaded weapons. And before some ignoramus labels me a cop hater, I certainly am not. There are good cops out there. My dad was a GREAT police officer and police chief. He was stern, compassionate, caring, careful, AN EXPERT AT FIREARMS, and he retired an admired servant to his community. Unfortunately, I feel he is the minority. This nation is broken in so many ways. Sad, sad, sad.
I can’t say its a win I am proud of, but it’s a win nonetheless. I am back in the good graces of the fantasy gods. Welcome back mojo!
