Police and society

We’ve been confronted with some very ugly realities about the performance of police of the decidedly difficult and dangerous tasks we’ve set for them.

Individual humans will err, of course. But it appears that these problems are SYSTEMIC — and systemic problems need to be taken up by society as a whole, going beyond mutual blame games and scapegoating, and looking for new solutions that actually work.

Because it’s clear that we are moving farther away from the goals we have, as a society, set for ourselves.
