OK, let me give you an example. Had an OPP stop into our service station and asked me if I could drive. I said , “Yeah, I can drive.”
He took me down the road more than a mile to drive a family’s car (A couple and two kids) back to our place because the father had lost his licence.
Me, I was only 15 and had no licence, but he never asked that.
Should I have had an accident driving this car, who would have been at fault?
The police do indeed serve a valuable service, but there are just too many avoidable killings by police… and if they are that scared of the public, then policing is the wrong job for them..
And what about the grand group at Uvalde, who stood by for more than an hour while a massacre was going on..
Low Blow! I object!
I’m a pro!
Then do the necessary evaluations, psychiatric and background checks. Elementary, my dear Lee..
Load of bull maybe?
And these are things that preoccupy your mind‽
Lee —All talk, no action.
You are quite right there, but even one ‘shoot before you think’ is too much, especially when you are supposed to ‘serve and protect.’
And it has nothing to do about being liberal, but more about common sense and professionalism!
Lots of things can be interpreted to appease one’s own biases when you ‘Throw enough $hit at the wall……..’
