Don’t blame the tactics

Hola. Hope you are well.

I was watching a news report about the riots in Ferguson and the riots in Baltimore. The reporter was explaining that the police got their tactics wrong in both places. In Ferguson, the police were too heavy handed, so much so it felt like a military invasion.

In Baltimore, reluctant to repeat the same mistake as in Ferguson, the reporter said the police went too far the other way, meaning there wasn’t enough of a police presence to deter would be rioters.

Call me old fashioned, but the problem in both these places, wasn’t the tactics; it was the deaths of American citizens at the hands of the American police.

Til next time, be nice to each other.
