(5) Major Issues Many Police Departments Struggle With
These are simply my opinions which has been garnered over the past 60 years of life here in the U.S. with three decades of driving our Nation’s roadways in a commercial vehicle. These are only my opinions, yours may well vary, you may not agree with me at all and that is quite okay with me. You may agree with me but you may well put these issues in a different order. The last one of the five I wrote down is Racism and that is because “too me” it belongs last of the five. Before you have the Proverbial Cow or you pee in your Cheerios let me explain my reason. Out on the road I spoke with many Law Enforcement Officers from 48 States and 6 of Canada’s Provinces. I am a White Male and I have never once got treated badly by a Black Police Officer or by an Oriental Officer, yet, I have been treated very badly by Navajo Police and by Hispanic Officers while in the South-West. In some of these cases it was obvious they disliked my “Whiteness” but all you can do is shut up, accept to say yes Sir, you know, kill an asshole with kindness. Now for an anti Race Kicker, I have been treated the worst by White Cops. Was it about Race, no! But, and a HUGE BUT, I have seen several times where White Police Officers were blatantly racists toward non-Whites. Now, I’m just going to give you the five thoughts to see what you think.
1.) Morality: Truthfulness-Honesty
2.) Maturity: the lack thereof, grow up, act like adults
3.) Punk-ism: this speaks for itself and it is a HUGE problem Nation-wide
