Do we wneed a police state to feel safe

The Seattle PD and other police agencys serve and protect them selves. hide the the bad apples in the ranks. they get away with it because we the people allow it. we read the news on line and text back and forth on our cell phone drink our starbucks and go to work for the MAN. “Every thing is under control folks” go about your busness”. “We made a little Mistake”. In my opininion that pig killed a part of me, part of the real Art community far away from the gallerys of the MAN. A few hundred showed up in protest to smash the barracades a small voice of out rage Agenst the swat and heat vans of the MAN. Only a few becase the rest of us are to old now for fighting in the street. The rest of you were to busy sipping star bucks playing with your toys and admireing Sara’s butt to even care…

We need broad sweeping change If we can’t trust the police what good are they to us.  Get rid of the flakes and punks they need to know if they step out of line they go down the road.  Applicants for police officer should be screened with psychological testing and back  ground checks and we need to make sure police academy instructors have no race or class hatred, police need to work with compassion. Hey I understand the job can be ugly but then every police officer chose the job. Every officer should look at his or her reasons for choosing that carrier and if it’s because of any kind of tough guy or cowboy image then forget about it you know, it’s not what we need. If America becomes a police state America is lost…

THE GOOD THE INSANE AND THE UGLY

It took the shooting of four Lake Wood Washington police officers By Maurice Clemmons to finally force media attention  to the overall lack of focused attention on problems with law enforcement and mental health that often leave the criminal justice system frustrated when it comes to protecting society.
Mental health law  needs change; big time change. Clemmons is not a cold-blooded killer. He  was  mentally  ill  but still part of our society. Yes he knew what he was doing when he shot the four Lake Wood police officers, We can’t understand his reason, because Clemmons was mentally ill his emotions were Scrambled. How can we know what he felt except that he was very intent on killing cops so he took a gun and went where he knew cops would be and killed them. Did he have some dark crazy motive. How many times have any of you been angry enough to want to kill?. I have been I didn’t I am not crazy.
Police officers Are for the most part good people but they are just folks, workers like you and me. They are not Gods but they are the face of our society’s  criminal justice system. Did Clemmons Feel that society Had cut him a raw deal?, We will never know. But have you ever felt you have been badly treated by anyone a cop or society, ok the anger went away after you had a drink smoked a J chilled out because you are not nuts Clemmons Was mentally  ill we need to reexamine   how society and our justice system treats mental illness and insure this won’t ever happen again.
In the mean time we need to lose the lynch mob attitude toward the Clemmons family they knew after the mess the cops made of the Aunts home that they had to keep Clemmons out the cops hands if they wanted him to stay ALIVE!.
