This is not to say cops shouldn't be held accountable for their own crimes, this is not to say classist, racist strains must be rooted out of forces, this is not to say they are always right and other citizens always wrong.

It is just to say that going into every situation with what might seem to me on my couch excessive caution, excessive resources, excessive show of force - it's something reasonable, and something that they do for my welfare, for your welfare, for society's welfare.
Requiescant in pace
