I don’t mean to criticize all law enforcement, because they are us, and there are bad people in this world who need to be policed. And most of law enforcement officers go to into this work because they felt a calling to be the ones on the front lines of a societal need, and to be there for the community. But at the same time, there are others who use this occupation to act out on biases, and feed a personal ambition that takes precedence over what is the overall good for society.
And, eventually I’ll get into the politicians who’ve created this broken system by creating and exploiting fear.

This video is a broad stroke. As with every snapshot of a group, it should be understood that it is not an attack on each individual within that group (except of course for those barbarians that were in the video).

To see them operate reminds me of a street gang more than anything else.
