The Disconnect Is Amazing

Seriously…how is it that the same people I know who are most distrustful of Government are the same people who seem certain that every death at the hand of a cop is justified?

What do these folks think cops are?  They are an extension of our government.  And somehow, people who do not trust the government are okay with giving this extension of the government the right to kill citizens with no concern of consequences.

It seems for some people, when it comes to police officers, no amount of negligence or incompetence resulting in the death of citizens is enough that we should question their actions.

By the way, the number of cops killed has been declining for decades, the homicide rate has been in decline but the number of people killed by cops has been increasing.
