I don't hate cops, I hate the ACTIONS of some. I hate the fact that there is apparently (clearly), systemic racism in the police & sheriff's offices around the country; I hate that they instill more fear than courage and that they don't seem to offer proper training. I hate when
they are called on bogus complaint calls, that the caller isn't punished. I hate that when they are called to help someone with a troubled child, or adult child, they don't have proper support professionals, who can handle mental problems, with finesse. I hate that sometimes,
a #policofficer's first thought is to pull out a gun, rather than having the training to be verbally persuasive. I hate that the police no longer KNOW the people on their "beats," therefore have no ties to the community. I hate that this country thinks PDs around the country

And THAT is why America is NOW behind every other, major...
industrialized nation, and why we are no longer leading at anything, on any level; but watching, as the progress being made, by so many other nations, passes us by.
If America doesn't get onboard with PROGRESS, with the Progressive ideas, mindset, and proposals--we will sink...
Donald Trump, with the aid & abetting of the Republican Party, have made this country vulnerable to attack. Due to Trump's withdrawal from our Nuclear Agreement with Iran, his elimination of sanctions placed on Russia and Russian Oligarchs, his complacent attitude toward (cont'd)
Russia's and North Korea's missile trials, and NOW with the permission he proffered to Turkey to attack the Kurds in Syria, which contributed to the release of ISIS terrorists from prisons there--we are at a point of grave vulnerability, that can't be overstated. (cont'd)
He has, essentially, disabled all of our diplomatic avenues, by firing all the experienced, competent members of the diplomatic arm of the State Department, replacing them with incompetent, uninformed, ignorant cronies/hacks, including the head of the State Department. (cont'd)
