The failure of police culture in the US is why I finally ended up threading my tweets of examples of its failings.

I end my refrain with “start over” because good policing is both necessary and possible, but is just not what we have at scale.

Heck, you can learn the proper moral stance for cops & risk from superhero comics.

“But Chocolateman, you cannot risk sacrificing yourself. You are too important.”

“Don’t say that, Superberry. If you are not protecting ordinary people you don’t deserve to call yourself a hero.”

If you think I am asking too much of cops, have a word with a firefighter about their motivating ethic.

They will volunteer without prompting that they are people who want to be on the scene to take risks so ordinary people need not face them.

Not really joking in LRT.

Part of the point of professionalized police is they run TOWARD the sound of the guns, accepting risks so that civilians don’t have to.

The single biggest problem with our police culture is the reversal of diverting risk to civilians to protect cops.

Correct solution to the trolly problem
