Response to Why Cops Like Me Are Quiet:
Well, clearly we outsiders can only influence change but so far. Because the prejudice and abuse of poor, brown, undocumented and mentally ill people has only decreased slightly in the past 50 years. So you 80% who work a job in fear of your lives from other cops if you are whistleblowers, or the admittedly 5% of criminal society really need to figure some things out. Ask the top ten percent who are supposed to be the elite of policing. But don’t militarize yourselves, dehumanize us, and ask for hugs simultaneously.
