Police Brutality

Police Brutality

I know many good cops.  I’ve had a lot of good interactions with cops. There does, unfortunately seem to be a trend that needs to be reversed.  I think things may have begun to change when Dyncorp took over the hiring of police in the early 2000s.

It is important to remember that despite the fact that there are many good police men and women, as a system of authority, at key periods of cultural development the police are on the wrong side of history.  Always.  Good individuals do bad things when pressured by authority and groupthink.
