My direct point is "If we want to solve this problem then perhaps if people who were more sensitive to the problem became police officers this would help." Do you want to dispute this?Maitri wrote:No, it's clear from your other posts you are a contrarian and hardly make a direct point in any thread. You directly asked why people aren't signing up to be police officers.Maitri wrote:Ridiculous.chownah wrote: How many people here would like to have a career in law enforcement in america?

Seems like people here are more sensitive to the problem.....what's keeping you from signing up?...fear?
So every American needs to become a senator or the president in order to disagree with their actions and policies? We elect and appoint people to the branches of government to represent our interests as American citizens.
You don't need to sign up to be a police officer to criticize their behavior. They are public servants and answerable to the tax paying citizens who employ them. You don't seem to grasp how a republic works or at least the executive branch of the state and/or local U.S. governments. It is the duty and obligation of private citizens to monitor and correct their elected officials when required. That doesn't mean that every private citizen needs to become a firefighter or police officer in order to push for changes and accountability in these departments. The Minneapolis police answer to Minneapolis residents and tax payers, not the other way around. No one needs to prove themselves by joining the police force in order to critique their behavior or policies.
also, I think you need to read my first post more carefully. I did not say any of the things you are suggesting....and senators? representatives? my ignorance of how gov't works?...you seem to find alot of stuff in my post which I have no idea where it was hiding and how you ferreted it out.
