    Thank goodness cops are better trained and better behaved than 20 or 30 years ago... back then there were no cell phone cameras, no body cams, less policies about reporting use of force incidents. 20 or 30 years ago this kind of apparent abuse would not have been known to anyone beyond those cops and the 2 or 3 that were actually involved...

    There were some bad apples then and there are some bad apples now. I will not knock the LEO's of fifty or sixty years ago.

    I think more LEO's were allowed to show judgement then. Knowing who to come down on hard and who to scare the crap out and then let go. Where to draw the line, where to look away. Seems that now, LEO's are more bound by procedure. And that has both pros and cons.

    It's election time. A good time to get the state AG and Governor involved so they can look like they're taking a stand for gun rights of the citizens. And it will be a good opportunity for all the other races to take sides or fall back to political speech.

    He should be using that to his advantage.

    Better trained and behaved? Seriously? I'm seeing more and more patrol officers, and county deputies that are dressing, and acting like they are members of some elite SWAT team, in small towns.

    The county where I live, the sheriff's department services about 6K to 7K in residents in the county. Our elected sheriff has equipped his deputies like they are SWAT commandos. A couple of years ago, he petitioned the county for TWO armored personnel carriers! He was turned down. Point of reference, there is not a lot of crime in our county. They bust a few tweakers a year running meth labs, some stolen cattle, and a few stolen vehicles. But violent crime? We do have some occasionally, but it's few and far between.

    You can believe what you want, but officers and deputies of years ago, took pride in the slogan, "to protect and serve" and personally, I'm seeing far from that now.

    I doubt much has changed. 50-60 years ago you couldn’t pull a magic screen out of your pocket and pull up every report of abuse by law enforcement in .3 seconds.

    They can make him show proof his.

    Yes I know they took it from him and it's not stolen so it's his. So now he has to become a circus bear and jump thru flaming hoops of bullsheit but....

    I still havent decided what to think of all of this. I may be missing some pieces of the puzzle. On one hand I dislike what I have been seeing out of Olmos Park. On the other hand, I also dont like seeing people go out and intentionally create conflict with police or anyone else. Once again , I will repeat that I probably dont know everything that is going on with this.
