The Joy Fonduable
Counting down the days! RCTID!!
DamosA - That article can be countered by countless other news stories of cops arresting criminals and saving lives. You may have heard the recent story of the NYC cop who bought a pair of shoes and socks for a homeless man. But if we logically followed your reasoning: that because some cops do bad things, because one nation went nuts, all police are bad - then people should never eat food because sometimes it has e-coli and makes them sick and they die. Your argument just isn't rational. But perhaps you have an alternative solution you'd like to offer, rather than more insults to anyone who disagrees with you (which is immature and does nothing to advance your argument). BTW, how does a larger police presence affect you personally? Do you attend PSU, or live in the neighborhood? Have you ever been in need of the police, been the victim of a crime? Have you ever been mistreated by the police?
I miss that show! I used to live in a tiny one horse/bar town in Colorado and watching that show saved my sanity!
Just curious if any of the comments posted so far were by women or men, students or non-students, people who live/work in the PSU area, or not. I've worked in public safety and a heightened police presence can be an effective deterent to crime. Also, for the victim, it's much more reassuring to know that police won't take forever to show up. Of course the concerns over police behavior during protests are valid and would require appropriate training and policy to avoid disgusting behavior like in UC Davis. But I think the seriousness of the issue warrants more serious discussion than devolving into conflated fears of Nazi Germany, the irrelevant goings on at city council meetings, and the "I know you are but what am I?" type blather.
