    Thanks!

    I have noticed Police Academies hire way too many ex-military officers to be trainers in their facilities.

    Not that I have a problem with ex-military people, but, training people for war is one thing, and teaching people how to be authoritative civil servants is another.

    Sure, one can learn leadership skills. They can be taught. But I think Policemen should possess leadership skills, or they should not be placed in the field.

    Just a thought!

    If you put a suspect down you insure that he stays down.
    I think that's the point.
    Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    That's a good perception. I grew up in San Diego and most of the Police there were ex-Marines.

    It's great basic training.

    But I am just saying there is also a human side to policing neighborhoods. The police are out there to instill an image of positive force and leadership in their communities.

    Police should always set the best examples! It's very important to gain trust while establishing and maintaining law and order. Strength through leadership!

    They certainly cannot be the bad guys!

    I agree. Treating people like shit is NOT what a Police Force wants their image to be.

    We do have to be careful who we give authority to. Police departments must do a good job of vetting. I think most do.

    That is why I think people should be careful about what they post here on forums etc.

    I know of several posters here that would be rejected by most Police Departments by just some of the racial posts exhibited here.

    hahaha ...
    I kind of wonder who wants to be a Policeman. I doubt they all want to be Good Samaritans. There has to be some Bad Apples right from the get go.

    Yes, but they may want to become a city council member or run for some kind of office, and they will be vetted. And associations with extreme political Social Media sites could show up in the vetting.

    So we all just need to stay cool and be a part of the solutions and not part of the problems.

    We are all mad about stuff, because there are those intentionally driving the divisions among us.

    Trump definitely needs to calm his shit down, being the president.

    I can't find a link, but I read a book that said Sally would visit TJ's grave on a weekly basis.
    After 6 kids, there was probably some type of emotional relationship.

    "According to people who knew her Sally Hemmings was white with long dark hair. Some have speculated that she looked like her half sister Martha (Thomas Jefferson's wife) but nobody knows for sure."
