What is Coming Out of the Academies is Shameful

Don't I know it, Chief.  Somehow we have to get these people to do right by their nation.  It is shameful how those taking the oath today, and in recent history, are doing so without any semblance of the principle and integrity required to make good on their sworn promises.  Of course I'm not just talking about police - it's all of us in the government paid to wield lethality.  There is a serious, very serious, crisis.  The arrogance and ignorance is astounding within the profession of arms.

Good on this police chief for getting the word out.  Let's pray it does some good.
