You are talking sense here.

The same emotionality that calls forward our need to support police is used to defend the status quo across the board.  Times have changed and we need to improve the 'public''s - or create a new public with - a better capacity to discuss and create a political foundation for economic restructuring.

The public's perception of policing is largely based on dramatic television shows and movies and the exceptional story of police shootings. They think cops are constantly involved in life-threatening situations and always racing to save people while locking up violent killers and rapists practically every day. The reality is most cops never take their guns out of their holsters except to practice. Cops, on average, make very few arrests in a year, perhaps half a dozen, and most of those are for property offenses.
