The police are not paid to be intelligent. They are paid to be loyal. I don't usually post this sort of content as I think that quietly most people know the police are not the public friendly organisation they used to be. It's the system that is broken for sure but my loyalty is to people first and a 15 year old girl and a wheelchair bound guy are not threats to real men. Bill Maloney's work on deaths in British police cells of young people is also where greater attention is sorely needed, and moral and financial support is lacking. Are the serial killers the police?
If you turn the other cheek, one day it will be yours or someone you loves cheek that his hitting the pavement at velocity. Silence is participation. That's what makes us human.
