Good evening and thank you for this article - which I read and noted- also the videos -which I watched- I HAD SEEN THE SHOW THE OTHER NIGHT - it was interesting- I also agree we can ask for fair and just treatment at the hands of police -without everyone saying that--- that makes us against police - we are not - we want neighbor policing like we had as kids - we lived in a mixed neighborhood and everyone got along - we had black, white- Italian-Irish- French- German - Japanese - all the mothers watched out for us and if I misbehaved -my MOM would get a call from any mom that saw me so we all knew to behave and we were also told when in trouble and no grown up was around -find a cop they would protect us- and we believed it- and it was so in those days WHAT HAPPEN??? WHAT CHANGED??? I really do not know - all of a sudden -the cops looked more like enemy with all the tanks tear gas- and military equipment- they never drove by -so the criminals moved in to our neighborhood - so no one could play outside -or sit on your porch and talk to your neighbors- some little punk would run up with a gun and rob you ---so sad- we need our cops back in the neighborhood and we need the punks to go away and grow up and come back with a better attitude- sincerely KAY M.
