First, I don’t want to disparage the intentions of this individual (Dr. William J. Lewinski ) in any way in this post – he may be the most well-intentioned person who has ever lived, for all I know (just as Dr. Jack Kervorkian seemed to be, IMO), but of course we all know what road is paved with good intentions! And as I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I have police officers (or former ones) in the family, and many friends of my parents were “cop families”. I understand the fear involved, and I can’t say that I’d want to be an officer, even if I could (being too old now, among other things), because of all the issues that are often in play (such as the “politics” of the department). However, something is clearly wrong in the USA because there are just too many shootings of unarmed civilians relative to any other “civilized” nation, and probably the Somalia-type excuses for nations as well. What is it?
