Kimberly Potter suddenly got her police gun + taser mixed up! She wasn’t a rookie — she was 48-years old with 20+-years experience as a cop. Something needs a big TIME-OUT. That ‘something’ is America’s Police Structure! Time, perhaps, to emulate the ‘London-Bobby’ school of policing. Hmmmmm . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
We have ‘something’ in our culture that is deeply embedded — a history of waging violent struggle against the Native Americans to take over this country – its land + resources. AND, our horrific treatment of African slaves which led to a CIVIL WAR — which is STILL being fought — to this very day! This ‘violence’ is always lurking just beneath the surface in our so-called ‘polite-society’. We are EVERtrigger-happy — even in the best-of-times. It’s in our ‘National’ DNA!
