@cypnk pub of the year
@cypnk @balrogboogie @jk I suspect it needs to be social, though - there's a legitimate need for officers to be armed in this country. We need to make them not use their weapons as a first resort, though.
Make officers be members of the communities that they're policing, rather than outsiders coming in to impose law and order on their communities, and you'll go a long way. Penalties for officers misusing deadly force need to have teeth - maybe even more than against civilans doing the same.
