More... blame the police instead of being thankful for them. You sound like you know who with a post like that.

Meanwhile, some just don't "get it".  Did you contribute to the fallen officers family?  Rich did; I just did.  How about you?

Richva--You are correct, blacks are pulled over in traffic stops and are arrested for other crimes at a very disproportionate rate. In addition, jail sentences for blacks are often longer than those of whites for the same or lesser crimes. Long been known.

When I worked at the jail, this subject was always included in tri-annual sheriff/jail staff meetings. On occassion, e-mails from the sheriff would come over the computer about this subject.

Covered at police academies and in criminal justice programs--still a huge problem, which is obviously not easy to solve.

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

Oh, I am sorry. I guess I don't understand the purpose of the original post in the Politics page then.

That's OK.

Happy posting!

Cent: Smiling! Thank you! She was one of those kids we never had to worry about.

Her captain told me, " She has heart!" 

But, back to discharge of a weapon, that seems to be department policy. She also told me that no police officer is to discharge a weapon at a fleeing suspect.

Once again, the conservatives do not understand how science works. In this case, mathematics. They also think anyone wearing a badge must be a hero. I have no idea who "you know who" is but my post is more reflective of a math professor than a social worker. By the way, have you made your donation yet?

=========================================

There you go again...trying to and failing to make this a issue political.

I am sorry the officer was killed. I contributed to his family. It does not change the situation in the United States.

Snoopy, Cent, RK--Asked my PD daughter about this one--This is what she said about the discharging of a police officer's weapon.

"The disharging of an officer's weapon should be the last resort, used only to protect self and others, and, again, after all else fails."


She must have had wonderful parents and very good training.
