It is easy to be an armchair quarterback and tsk tsk over police violence based on today's modern technologies, which brings the "evidence" to the internet viewer even before the police management knows what is going on.
Not that I am condoning police brutality, but I think people need to consider what is happening to the police everyday and try to walk a mile in their shoes.
When I was a teenager, I was fortunate to have a long conversation with my grandparent's next door neighbor when I visited on vacation. Mr. Kincaid was a retired Chicago policeman. And this stuck in my young fragile eggshell mind....HE WAS BORN IN FREAKIN' 1887!
To make this relevant, he told me how the African-Americans who served in WWI returned home, and remembered how piss poor they had it. Only now, they were soldiers. So they took to the rooftops and started shooting people. Days went by with snipers firing and police firing back. It was a small war. In this day and age, public outrage would be overwhelming.
This doesn't get mentioned much, for it was so long ago, there was no internet/social media, and the Spanish flu done killed a lot of people. But there are a lot of similarities to 1919 and today. Particularly, our peace officers need our support. Back then, we heard that message and delivered. VOTE TRUMP
