Letter: We need better-trained professional police forces across the nation

Posted

I think it’s time that police forces all over this country were made up of professional officers who are trained to disarm the mentally challenged, rather than frightened children who kill a shell-shocked, honorably discharged war veteran in a hail of bullets.

This is a shameful, fear-based misuse of the public trust, and a blatant example of the “us vs. them” mindset of most police departments in the U.S.
